False religious teachers continue to attract multitudes. Sincere people are being deceived. The stakes are high. It makes all the difference whom you follow. More than nine hundred members of the People's Temple followed their leader, Jim Jones, on a path of death into the jungles of Guyana in the late 1970s. David Koresh's followers died a fiery death in Waco, Texas. Members of Heaven's Gate listened to their leader, Marshall Applewhite, and committed mass suicide in an affluent Southern California suburb.
In whom can we place confidence as the sole source of our salvation? "Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved" (Acts 4:12). Jesus is the only Source of our salvation. Cult leaders focus attention upon themselves rather than Jesus. They manipulate the minds of their followers. They become substitute saviors and counterfeit messiahs.
