Being Negative is Not Always Bad

Those who offer critiques of heterodox teachings or unwise conduct are sometimes called "negative," with the implication that this designation impugns the one who offers such critiques.

Nevertheless,  the terms "positive" and "negative" are not used in Scripture as equivalents of true and false, wise and foolish, or right and wrong.

"Positive" and "negative" may be useful in determining the polarity of electrical current but not in determining veracity, wisdom, or morality.

Must Christians follow Old Testament laws?

Hebrew Roots (or Hebraic Roots, Jewish Roots) is a diverse, global religious movement with  one common emphasis: to restore what it calls the 'Jewishness of Christianity.'

The churches, teachers and ministries that are part of this movement also share one common characteristic:  they depart from orthodox, biblical Christianity.

Ravi Zacharias at BYU and the Mormon Tabernacle

Christian apologist Ravi Zacharias [1] explains why he has again accepted an invitation to address Mormons. [2]

He assures that "the gospel for which we stand is what we will present and represent."

Zacharias also notes, "These are not the kinds of settings we get popular for, but these are the kinds of settings where we are called to go."

+David Kowalski writes, "For many years now I have read and dialogued with representatives of moral relativist philosophy in the world and Antinomian theology in the church. Worldly, moral relativists insist that there are no moral absolutes and that one cannot "impose" "their" morality on others.

Antinomians in the church say that to refer to specific do's and don’ts in the New Testament (which is actually filled with them) is "legalism" (a NT concept that actually means reversion to Mosaic regulations such as dietary rules and special days). Both groups, however, apply their belief system selectively, actually approving the open prohibition of some behaviors."

Seventh-day Adventist Church: cult of Christianity

The Seventh-day Adventist Church goes to great lengths to try and be accepted as a just another Christian denomination. 

But based on its serious doctrinal errors we believe it should instead be considered, theologically, a cult of Christianity. 

Apologetics Index presents an overview of the SDA Church and its teachings, and provides links to research resources for further study.

Christian Science: Neither Christian, Nor Scientific

Christian science (The First Church of Christ, Scientist) is neither Christian nor scientific. 

This religious movement's denial and/or re-interpretation of key Biblical doctrines mark it as, theologically, a cult of Christianity. 

Nevertheless, in many U.S. states the Federal Government has granted Christian Science religious exemptions which, in the eyes of many, has led to needless suffering and preventable deaths as the church's followers apply its version of 'faith healing.

A closer look at Stephen Covey and his 7 Habits

Published nearly 26 years ago, Stephen Covey's development training program, "The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People" today is as popular as ever. 

But most people who use it are unaware of the fact that Covey has discovered how to communicate Mormon teachings to non-Mormons by simply changing his vocabulary. 

Bill Gordon explains that a study of Covey's writings reveal the Mormon ideas and beliefs behind many of the principles found in 7 Habits.

A highly acclaimed biography of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard, exposing both his lies and those of the church of Scientology about his live and accomplishments, will be reprinted soon.

Throughout its history the Church of Scientology has not only failed to denounce and disavow Hubbard's fantasies, but has itself greatly contributed to the body of fiction surrounding its founder.

Our mission is simple: to point Christians and non-Christian alike to the best research resources on religion-related topics.

The Apologetics Index 'family of web sites' provides  research resources on 
  • religious cults, sects, new religious movements, alternative religions, 
  • abusive churches, spiritual abuse,

  • doctrines, religious practices and world views
We operate from an Evangelical Christian point of view, but the research resources we point to reflect a variety of theological and/or sociological perspectives.
