Cults and the Occult - Different Gospels and Gods

Led by: Tim LeClaire

Location: CCC

  • Meets every 3rd THURSDAY at 6:30PM


In the Bible, Paul gives a warning to the Galatians, stating "I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel." Some religions claim to worship the God of the Bible and may use similar terminology to Christianity, yet upon investigation it is discovered to be a very different Jesus and Gospel. Other faiths may even take on supernatural beliefs and practices that have now become commonplace in our culture and society. This class will explore the beliefs and practices of major Cults and the Occult in the United States and will help prepare us to understand the differences. Join us as we will become equipped to witness and share the true Gospel to the lost.
