A Cult is a Cult.

Have you ever heard that no matter what you do to change the looks of a leopard, under it all it's still a leopard?

Well it's the same with a cult. You can change the leaders and the name,but its still a cult.

Cult is defined as. 1.religion: a system of religious or spiritual beliefs, especially an informal and transient belief system regarded by others as misguided, unorthodox, extremist, or false, and directed by a charismatic, authoritarian leader. 2. religious group: a group of people who share religious or spiritual beliefs, especially beliefs regarded by others as misguided, unorthodox, extremist, or false. 
If we go back and search out the history of every denomination. You will find out that you are a part of a cult. Did or do you all know that the Roman Catholic/Catholic Church is a cult? Like we said you can change leadership, some beliefs and names. but it doesn't change the fact that it's still a cult. We have seen over the years many  cults have arose, many have prospered very well, many others have faultered. You see satan transforms himself into an angel of light, but at the end of the day, he is still satan and his rewards await him.

The Hare Krishnas, Sun Myung Moon's Unification Church, and Moses David Berg's Family of Love are some popular examples of this type of cult which also contains the likes of Scientology, Jehovahs Witnesses, Mormons and Catholicism. What people fail to look at is the WHOLE picture, meaning point a finger at one and there's 4 looking back at you. Yes it's so easy to look back and say David Karish was a cult leader but so was Jim Jones, Sun Myung Moon. And it is so easy for millions to make fun of the Catholic Church and label them a cult. OH, but did you know, did you know that your denomination is also considered a cult? Once again here  we are asking you to go back to the days of the reformer.
If we can wake up one soul to seeing the light and truth of God, we have done our job. The bible tells us that if ONE turns to Christ, just one, oh how the angels rejoice around the THRONE of GOD. I believe this is when one finds the truth of God.
Remember:  A Cult is defined as. 1.religion: a system of religious or spiritual beliefs, especially an informal and transientbelief system regarded by others as misguided, unorthodox, extremist, or false, and directed by a charismatic, authoritarian leader. 2. religious group: a group of people who share religious or spiritual beliefs, especially beliefs regarded by others as misguided, unorthodox, extremist, or false. 
Let us try and break this down for consumption. There are several Churches that are named after the Church of God, but that does not make them part of the early church that Jesus established. In the beginning the early Church of God had all things common whether it was in Jerusalem, Antioch, and so on, there's to many to mention. But through it all satan gradually creeped in perverting the Church as well as the Gospel.  You can find that in Revelations chapters 1,2&3 and see what Jesus had to say.That same message applies today. At the breaking away from the original Church of God, many splinter groups or (CULTS) arose.
I call myself being part of the True Church of God that Christ established. Have I found or been lead to everything I need to learn and know? No, I haven't, but I am seeking and striving for perfection. The truths that we have learned didn't come over night but by years of seeking and searching and wanting to be as true as possible. As I have said we find the truth by help of the Holy Spirit, no other. All the man founded Bible Colleges or Universities can not teach you the truth, just a form of truth, if that. We can not take man's word at face value. If you do that means you are putting more trust in man than in The Creator (God).
We have studied a lot of literature and documents from the Church of God 7th day, to the Worldwide Church of God, The Church of God international, the Living, Universal, Meridian, United, the Restored and Church of the Great God, as well as Baptist, Methodist, Catholic, Quakers, Puritans, Mormons and Jehovah witnesses just to name a few.
The Holy Spirit/Ghost will lead you where ever you need to go to establish the truth.
Again we say, A CULT is a CULT, no matter who's in charge or what denomination it is under. We said earlier that we all need to go back and seek out our denomination we affliilate with.

Now just off the top of my head the Roman Catholic Church was actually founded in 468 or 486 somewhere around that time and would be the worlds leader of religion for 1500 and some years till the last world ruling Pope was arrested and stripped of power.
Now let us look at a times known as the reformation era. There were Catholics and protestants.

If you will look closely at each one on this chart you will see for your own eyes when and how your denomination or cult, (and what we mean by that is the description of what a cult is).

Cult is defined as. 1.religion: a system of religious or spiritual beliefs, especially an informal and transientbelief system regarded by others as misguided, unorthodox, extremist, or false, and directed by a charismatic, authoritarian leader. 2. religious group: a group of people who share religious or spiritual beliefs, especially beliefs regarded by others as misguided, unorthodox, extremist, or false. 

Folks it may sound harsh but if you are part of the 50,000 or more beliefs in the world today. You have only a FORM of godliness but deny the power there of. No matter which you affliate with, you are part of a man made religion and cult.  There is but ONE church and ONE denomination, not 50,000.  That church IS the church Jesus Himself established, the true Church of God.  If anyone calls the church Jesus established a cult, I rebuke you in the name of Jesus!
Enough said,thank you.
