Recently, a couple came to our door and asked if they could read the Bible to us. We said yes, but later I began wondering if they were from a cult. They said Christian churches don't understand the Bible, and only their group understands it correctly. Are they right?


No, they’re not right; Christians throughout the ages have understood the Bible’s central message and have sought to live by it.

What is that message? It is centered in Jesus Christ, who was both fully God and fully man, and who came into the world for one reason: to make it possible for our sins to be forgiven and for us to go to heaven. He did this by becoming the final and complete sacrifice for our sins through His death on the cross — and He proved it by rising from the dead by the power of God. This is why the Bible says that “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).

Your question, however, suggests to me that you want to know more about God, and I hope you’ll act on that desire. How can you do this? First, simply tell God that you want to know Him — not just know about Him, but actually have a personal relationship with Him. Then by faith ask Jesus Christ to come into your life — and He will.

Don’t be misled by those who could lead you astray, no matter how friendly or sincere they seem. Instead, ask God to lead you to a church where Christ is preached and you can grow in your faith. God loves you, and He wants you to be part of His family forever — beginning today.

    How can I understand Jehovahs Witnesses that come to my door and want to study the bible? It is contrary to what I have learned in my baptist church. They tell me I dont go to heaven but will live on a Paradise Earth. How do I answer them when they try to sway me to believe their religion? They claim they are the only true religion. Can you help me understand them. I have listened faithfully to Billy Graham for nearly 60 years. I appreciate any help you can give me.

    When people come to your door and preach a Jesus Christ that is created by God or another person higher in rank than Jesus Christ you have encountered a cult. Jesus Christ is God revealed in flesh and is the Creator.
