Jehovah's Witnesses

Jehovah's Witnesses

by Alan W. Gomes and Robert M. BowmanJr.

The zeal and dedication of Jehovah's Witnesses mask a highly disciplined organization that has a troubled history. Moreover, their thorough knowledge of their own scriptures gives a pretense of having spiritual truth. The movement has grown from about 1.1 million worldwide in 1965 to 4.4 million today. Yet all is not what it seems in the Watchtower Socie… Read more…

Masonic Lodge

Masonic Lodge

by Alan W. Gomes, Larry A. Nichols and George Mather

Many make the mistake of thinking because a thing is common, it is probably harmless. Masonic Temples are everywhere. Are the Masons just another "service organization"?

Satanism

by Alan W. Gomes, Bob Passantino and Gretchen Passantino

Belief in Satan worship is often viewed as an embarrassing throwback to the superstitions of another time. And "selling your soul to the Devil"?

Moreover, these mind sciences appeal to many peop… Read more…

New Age Movement

New Age Movement

by Alan W. Gomes and Ron Rhodes

Reincarnation, auras, and energizing crystals -- surely these are the stuff of fairy tales, nothing more.

"Jesus Only" churches not only require baptism for salvation, but also stipulate that it must be baptism in the name of the L… Read more…

Buddhism

Buddhism

by Alan W. Gomes and J. Isamu Yamamoto

In the second half of the twentieth century, the failure of Enlightenment rationalism and the spiritual bankruptcy of Western materialism have opened the door for Eastern religions, especially the nontheistic religions that promise enlightenment and peace of mind.
