The Warning Tract

by Matt Slick
Return to Tracts


The Warning Tract is an easy way to inoculate people from joining Mormonism or the Jehovah's Witnesses.  This tract is free!  Please use it!  It works!  3 tracts per page!  Very cheap to copy.


It is illegal to place these in mailboxes.
You can put them on doors, windshields, etc.

You can witness for a hundred hours to a cultist and, maybe, just maybe he might leave his cult. But, you can pass out Warning Tracts to people before they get sucked into a cult.  It is easier to prevent people from joining a cult than it is to get them out. The Warning Tract is VERY effective at inoculating people from joining cults.

All you need to do is put the tracts on the doors of homes and apartments, on cars, or simply hand them to people, of if you're daring, put them on car windows at malls.  They are completely documented, accurate, self-contained, and ready to use. They even contain information on the true Jesus and what you need to know to be saved. Believe me, they work. I've passed out thousands of them and a lot of people have thanked me for the information once they get it.

Walter Martin, the founder of C.R.I. a nationally syndicated Christian apologetics' radio show (now headed by Hank Hanegraff), wanted to order 100,000 of them to advertise on his program. Unfortunately, before that could happen, the Lord called him home; but it shows how important he thought they were.

Word Word Word



There are two cults going door-to-door: Mormonism and Jehovah's Witnesses. They claim to be Christian religions, but they are not.
Mormonism teaches:
--God used to be a man on another planet and Mormon members
may become gods of their own worlds. 1
--There are many gods. 2
--The Trinity is three separate Gods. 3
--Entrance into celestial heaven is by the consent of God and the
Mormon prophet Joseph Smith. 4
--God has a body of flesh and bones. 5
--God is married and produces spirit babies by having physical
relations with his goddess wife. 6
--Jesus, Satan, and all of us are spirit brothers and sisters
procreated in a pre-existent spirit life. 7
--God had relations with Mary to make Jesus’ body. 8
--You must shed your own blood for the forgiveness of some sins. 9
--Good works are necessary for the forgiveness of sins. 10
Be careful. Rarely will they mention these 'higher' doctrines. Therefore, you really don't know what they are teaching until long after you have joined. Be warned.
The Jehovah's Witnesses teach:
--Their church organization is the prophet of God. 11
--Jesus returned invisibly in 1914. 12
--Blood transfusions are sinful. 13
--The Holy Spirit is God's impersonal active force. 14
--Only their church members will be saved. 15
--Jesus was an angel who became a man. 16
--Jesus did not rise from the dead physically. 17
--There is no Trinity. 18
--Good works are necessary for the forgiveness of sins. 19

   Be careful. Jehovah's Witnesses will want to begin a home 'Bible study' with you. What they really want is for you to join their religion.
   These groups are non-Christian cults because they deny the true biblical doctrines of Jesus and salvation. First, Mormonism says Jesus is the brother of the Devil. 7   J.W.'s teach that he is an angel who became a man. 16   These teachings are not biblical.
Second, both these cults erroneously say that in order to be saved you must cooperate with God by doing good works. The Bible says that salvation is a free gift from God. 21 The Bible condemns the addition of our works to the finished sacrifice of Jesus. 22 Galatians 2:21 says that if salvation comes by works ("if righteousness comes through the Law"), then Jesus died needlessly. Salvation comes by God's grace through faith alone, not by our works 21 which are impure. 29   Simply put, they each preach a false message of salvation.
   The Bible teaches: there is only one God; 23   God is spirit; 24   Jesus' sacrifice cleanses from all sin; 25   Jesus is the only way to God; 26   all who receive Jesus as Savior will be saved; 27   and Jesus is God in flesh 20   who rose from the dead in the same body He died in. 28

  These are some of the things the Christian church has always believed. These two cults distort them and thus lead many into eternal damnation. Why? Because . . .
Only the Jesus of the Bible saves, not the brother of Satan (Mormonism), and not an angel made into a man (Jehovah's Witnesses). Faith works only when you trust someone who is true.
   The Mormons and J.W.'s are good people, and we love them; but, they are misled. 30   They do not know that the true gospel is the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus for our sins; and that we receive His forgiveness by faith alone (faith in the true Jesus). Satan has blinded them. 30  Jesus said that if the blind lead the blind, both will fall into the pit. 31   That is why this Christian ministry is exposing these cults, so you won't be deceived.
   If you want to be assured of the forgiveness of your sins and have peace with God, then you must realize that you have sinned against God 32   and are separated from Him. 33   Then, ask Jesus into your life--ask Him to forgive you of your sins and save you. He will. 27  He is Savior and Lord, and He is as close as the call of your heart. Then read your Bible and go to church. At least now you know which two not to join. Eternity is a long time to be wrong.

This tract is free to reprint and distribute.


The tract size is 3 3/4 inches by 8 1/2 inches.  Three tracts fit on a double-sided 8 1/2 by 11 sheet of paper.  You just need to cut them into thirds. The cost per tract is the price of a double-sided copy divided by three.

Happy Inoculating!

Also, if you use it, could you please email me and let me know how it goes?  I really want to know.  And, also let me know if you have troubles formatting it for your printer.  This way I can try and modify it to work better.

My desire is that these tracts be used to prevent people from joining the cults.  Please use them.  Spread them out.  Canvass neighborhoods.  They work.
