The Bible itself labels a teaching “false” if it goes against the Word of God (1 John 4:1-3; 2 Peter 2:1). In their zeal to debunk the teachings of the INC, it appears that the ADD swung to the other extreme. The ADD, on the other hand, teaches that Jesus is God, not man. This went against the Biblical teaching on the humanity of Christ (Rom , 18-19; 1 Cor ; 1 Tim 2:5).
In fact, the ADD invite people to examine their teachings for their “intention is to stir sensible scrutiny of [their] religious faith.” This paper is a response to that invitation.

Then it will propose steps on how believers can effectively reach out to them by “speaking the truth in love” (Eph ). Instead of resorting to sarcasm and character assassination, it will focus on doctrinal issues.
