Who are we?
Ephesians 5:11, Incorporated is a 501 (c) (3) counter-cult ministry which specializes
in subversive religious organizations which deny being religions.
It is vital for a person to know Jesus Christ.
John 14:6 and Acts 4:10 - 12 makes it clear that Jesus is the only way to salvation. John 14:6 reveals the words of Jesus: "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." Acts 4:10 - 12 contains the core teaching of the first Gospel sermon. It reads, "Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved."
If a person is not a Christian, he is headed to hell. If a Mason or Rosicrucian does not claim to be a Christian, it is necessary to lead him to Jesus. Until he is ready to accept Jesus, it makes little difference if he is involved in the occult or not. If he leaves the occult organization, he is still headed to hell, unless he accepts Jesus Christ as his savior. When we lead an occultist to Jesus, it is necessary to inform him that he has to make a clean break with all aspects of the occult and all elements of false religion in order to become a Christian. We would not be reluctant to tell a Buddhist that he cannot become a Christian unless he makes a clean break with Buddhism. Is there any reason to withhold the corresponding truth when witnessing to an occultist?
If a Christian is ensnared in sin, other Christians have an obligation to attempt to lead him toward repentance.
James 5:19-20 states: Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.
In order to witness to a man who is ensnared in the occult, you have to know something about the occult organization he is involved in. However, you do not have to know as much as you would think. If you know a few critical facts which will convict a man that the teachings and practices of the organization he is involved in are grossly incompatible with Christianity, that is often sufficient. If the man is a Christian, he is sealed with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit can use any Christian to provide evidence which will lead a man to repentance. It is not up to us to cause a man to repent. However it is up to us to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit to confront the man with the truth in a loving manner. If the man is a Christian, it doesn't take a lot to lead him out of an occult organization. If he is not led by the Holy Spirit, it may be next to impossible to lead him out of an occult organization.
