The Cult Dynamic
What You Need to Rescue Your Loved One • Christy (Harvey) Darlington
* What is the difference between a false “Christian” cult and a heretical movement? * How do cults control the minds of their followers? * What can you say to help someone leaving a cult? This training session was presented to Christians who were learning how to reach their loved ones involved in a variety of cults.

Effective Methods Jehovah's Witnesses
Five Questions Leading Jehovah’s Witnesses to Jesus • Arnold Hoffman
Note that not every Jehovah’s Witness today makes as big of an issue over the “personal sins” point that Hoffman said they do in his presentation. Hoffman gave this presentation over 20 years ago and there is more emphasis on Jesus in the Watchtower literature today than there was several years ago. So while it is important to draw the connection between personal sins and Jesus’ death, don’t let it throw you off-guard if the Jehovah’s Witness you are speaking to does not react to this part of your presentation, like they did when Hoffman was witnessing to them years ago. Just continue to move on to the part about dealing directly with Jesus in prayer for salvation, and use the verses in the handout link to lead them to Jesus in prayer.

Discussing Trinity with Mormons
How to Talk to Mormons about the Triune God • Christy (Harvey) Darlington
* What does Mormonism teach about the Godhead? * Do Mormons believe in three separate Gods? * If Jesus is the Son of God, how can He be the same God as the Father?

The fundamental issue is: Who is Jesus? If you have Jesus wrong, everything else is wrong in your faith. Listen as Christy discusses the differences between the Mormon view of the Godhead and the Biblical view of the Trinity. Topics Covered include: * The Definition of the Trinity * Why the Trinity Doctrine is Important * The Biblical Basis for the Trinity * 3 Distortions of the Trinity Doctrine * The Formation of the Historic Christian Creeds concerning the Trinity Learn How to Prove the Trinity from Biblical and Mormon Scripture.
