responded to His disciples' questions about the end of
the age and the signs of His coming during His Olivet
Discourse as they sat overlooking the Temple Mount. Alan
Franklin writes the following:
response Jesus gave was a warning about deception:
"Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall
come in my name, saying I am Christ; and shall
deceive many." Jesus gave the warning about false
Christs and prophets three times to show its
importance (Matthew 24; 5,11 and 24)...
people are easily deceived. So we wrote this book to
shine some light into dark corners of the false
sects and isms that often masquerade as Christian--and
also into Islam.
Indeed, this book
gets to the heart of the false teaching and false
prophecy being perpetrated on the naive and gullible.
The Franklins expose the cults and isms of these
strange, troubling times with a no-nonsense,
non-politically correct dissection and analysis of the
dark forces that seek to lead mankind from the way that
leads through the narrow gate of salvation, striving,
rather, to herd humanity down the broad road that leads
Because it is the
most pervasive form of "ism,"the authors deal in-depth
with Catholicism and the insidious
ways it has historically and in modern times intertwined
itself around and within much of humanity with spiritual
deception. Romanism, having invaded the Christian world
with Roman Emperor Constatine's embracing a false form
of the Christian faith in 312 AD,
continues to muddy the waters of how one must be
redeemed. More than a billion souls are held captive to
and Isms also examines the claims and
beliefs of Islam, which now numbers more adherents than
Catholicism. The authors tests the claims of Mohammed
and his followers against what the Bible says. Do we
pray “to the same god,” as we are told by politicians
and churchmen? The answers are inside, in the book's
second "Table of Truth."
It is the "Tables of Truth" that are most fascinating
for me personally. Here, the Franklins examine--in a
point-by-point comparison--the most
familiar cults and isms of our day. This profoundly
illuminating look at, for example, Seventh-Day
Adventism, Mormonism, and the Jehovah Witness cults,
explains in a quick, yet thorough, way exactly what each
deceptive system teaches.
The "Tables of Truth" tell how each of these departs
from Bible truth, and give the reader understanding that
is so vitally needed to stand in the Christian faith
against the deceivers of these prophetic times, about
whom Jesus forewarned us.

I'm concerned. However, there is so much more in this
volume from which discernment can be appropriated that
to pick any one part as more insightful than another can
be determined only by the reader.
