DC 401 - Week 5 - Cults of Christianity (Part 1)

We begin a three week series on cults and world religions. The workload is a little lighter these three weeks, in order that everyone may emphasize a particular cult or world religion of choice to study and give a brief report. But here's how it might break down:

Monday - Read 2 Samuel 13-24 and comment
Tuesday - Read Psalms 3, 18, 30, and 63, and comment
Wednesday - Memorize Galatians 1:8 - "But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned" - and review previous memory verses, including Matthew 28:19-20, 2 Corinthians 5:21, and Galatians 5:16
Thursday - Read chapters 1-3 (2 is optional) of Alan Gomes' book, Unmasking the Cults, and review memory verses
Friday - Work on your particular report and review memory verses - over the course of these three weeks, we'll look specifically at Mormonism, Jehovah's Witnesses, the "Word of Faith" movement, Christian Science, Scientology, 7th Day Adventists, Islam, Rastafarianism, and more
