Is there such thing as a Christian cult?
Your way of explaining a topic is certainly helpful
Bless you all :)
yes you two did 😀 thanks
This in itself is a polar question, meaning the expected answer is “yes” and “no”, to which Pink alluded to in the definition above.
With the answer being “yes”, there are those out there under the Christian title, yet, they are the center of their Church. The focus of their congregation is what they teach rather than Jesus Christ. This is wrong, and by definition it will come under the category of a cult.
However, the “no” to the answer is, there cannot be such a thing as a Christian cult. The word Christian is from the Greek word - (Christianos), meaning a follower of Christ. Therefore, if anyone sincerely follows Christ, He shall be their focus and their source of inspiration and doctrine. Christ shall be the head, but not the preacher, teacher or the founder of that assembly. So, anyone who claims to be a follower of Christ, i.e., a Christian, but follow not His teaching, can we still call them a follower of Christ? No, as the result, they “might” be a cult, but considering they aren’t following Christ, they shouldn’t be given the exaltation of a Christian or the follower of Christ with the smearing of a cult.
If they choose not to follow Christ teachings, they shouldn’t be call a Christian.
