One of the projects that I have been involved with at Kanok Bannasan (OMF Publishers Thailand) this past year has finally been published. “Christianity and the Cults” (Thai title: รู้เท่าทัน) covers six cult groups that are operating in Thailand that Thai Christians may encounter. In the post, I want to give an English summary of what’s in the book so that missionaries and other English speaking Christians can knowledgeably recommend it to their Thai Christian friends and use it in ministry. This is not a translated book, but is an original Thai book that has been written “in-house” by Kanok, with the help of various contributors.
The introductory chapter addresses three areas that help set the tone for the book, and assist readers in preparing themselves to meet cult groups and false teaching in general.
First, why this book? For some people it may seem distasteful to label someone a false teacher or to say that such-and-such group is a cult, but these are things that we must do because the Bible makes such distinctions.
