In this episode, Jim examines the recent comments of Pastor Robert Jeffress who recently described Mormonism as a “cult”. Has this word lost its meaning in our culture? Is there some other way to effectively share our concerns about the distinctions between Christianity and Mormonism? Also, Jim looks at the claim that Hitler was a Christian. Can this be supported by history? What implications does Hitler’s view of Jesus have on our examination of those who claim to be Christians?
