There are 14 million Mormons in the world and 7 million Jehovah’s Witnesses. But there are more than 900 million followers of Hinduism. And yet, the religion and beliefs of Hindus remain very much a mystery to most Christians and people living in the West. In this new 64 minute DVD by Charlie Campbell you’ll learn about:
• The BEGINNING of Hinduism (where, when and how it got started)
• The BOOKS of Hinduism (their sacred scriptures)
• The BELIEFS of Hinduism
• The DIFFERENCES between Hinduism and Christianity
• SUGGESTIONS on how Christians can more effectively and lovingly talk about Jesus with Hindus
Most people in the West think if God and Heaven are real, they are surely on their way to Heaven. When asked why, they often respond with, “I’m a good person!” When asked if they think their friends are going to Heaven, they think they are going also because “He’s a good Buddhist,” or a good Jew, or Hindu, or Muslim! Research has shown that 70% of religious Americans believe that many religions can lead to everlasting life. In this DVD, Charlie Campbell shows why this view is dangerously incorrect and that there is only one way to everlasting life—a relationship with Jesus, mankind’s only Savior (John 14:6; Acts 4:12). But what about people who have never heard of Jesus? Will they end up in Hell? How could Christianity be the only right religion? What about Buddhists, Hindus, and Muslims? Might not all religions connect people with God? Get solid Biblical answers to these questions and several more in this 55 minute video.
Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons, Muslims, and others say Jesus was merely a human prophet, an angel, or some other created being. And they claim to have support for their views in the Bible. Christians believe Jesus was and is the eternal God, the second person in the Trinity, equal in nature with God the Father and the Holy Spirit. Who is right? In this video, Charlie Campbell, a Christian apologist, interacts with a formidable Scripture-wielding Jehovah’s Witness (well, a pretend one) in a verse-by-verse examination of the most popular proof texts used to deny the deity of Christ. By answering each of the man’s misunderstandings and mistaken interpretations, Charlie demonstrates that the traditional, historical understanding of Jesus’ deity is the Biblical view. Length: 55 minutes.
When it comes to Jesus, atheists commonly say:
• There’s no credible evidence Jesus existed
• The authors of the Gospels stole their ideas for Jesus’ life from other ancient religions
• The earliest Christians didn’t believe Jesus was God
• The Gospels contradict one another
• There are scientific errors in the Gospels
• The “Gospel of Thomas” and the “Gospel of Judas” give us a more accurate understanding of who Jesus was
• Accounts of Jesus’ miracles are fabrications
Charlie Campbell, an author and Christian apologist, responds to these charges and lays out a compelling case that Jesus really did exist and the Gospels are trustworthy accounts of His life. Length: 52 minutes.
JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES: An Examination of the Unbiblical Teachings of the Watchtower Society
Where, when, and how did the Watchtower Society, popularly known as “Jehovah’s Witnesses,” come into being? What do Jehovah’s Witnesses teach and how do their teachings line up with the Bible? How can Christians best reach out to Jehovah’s Witnesses on their doorsteps? Charlie Campbell answers these questions and others in this hour long DVD.
• Where, when and how did Mormonism begin?
• Who was Joseph Smith?

• Is Mormonism in harmony with true Biblical Christianity?
• Is the Book of Mormon a trustworthy, authentic revelation from God?
• If not, why not?
• How can Christians be more effective in sharing the truth with Mormons?
Charlie Campbell answers these questions and more in this 70-minute video.
