Many of the documents in this section of the site are compiled from a series of lectures on the cults and world religions delivered by Professors Rickard (Ari) Levitt-Sawyer, ThM, ThD, DMin, MBA and Grady L. Davis, BD, MCM, PhD in the Department of Comparative Religion on the Alameda, California, campus of Golden Gate School of Theology from 1983 to 1985, and in numerous churches in California and Tennessee from 1983 to 1995. Some minor editorial changes have been made to present a more Messianic Jewish viewpoint than that of the original Baptist-oriented presentation.
