No! I am not a member of a cult?
I have notice that members of a Religious cult really hate to see their religion being called a Cult. Looking at one of the main stream religion in particular the Christian Faith, of which has split into hundreds of faiths all supposedly following the teaching of Christ.
The founding Christian faith was Catholicism of which only became a strongly followed religion because it was imposed by a Roman Emperor (Constantine); in fact it was tailored to his needs by mixing Judaism with chosen Gospels and bringing in Idols to simulate the old faiths of Rome. Through out the centuries the religion was first imposed within the expanding Roman Empire and then later by the nations of Europe that evolved after the empire collapsed. New religious cults emerged from the catholic faith they had a differing opinion on idols and how the religion should be run. Colonization of the World by European nations spread the religion in it original roman form and also in its cult related form across the globe.
Many new religious cults had formed there after most fled and settled in the American colonies and others developed there after from the time America declared its independence. Seemingly USA has bred some of the worst silliest indoctrinations and many of them are Christian related. Then there is those that blatantly decided to start a religious cult as profitable business. Evangelism became big profit organizations using the radio and television to raise funds and the leaders became very rich. Other cults expect their followers to pay 10% of there earnings to fund their church, once again the leaders became very rich.
They use charity and even politics to fool their indoctrinated followers that the cult’s is only doing charitable things and to hide the fact that the leaders are running the cult for there own benefit.
Of course this religious based business has been copied out side of the USA in countries such as the Philippines where cult’s leaders are actual making a living from the rich and very poor. Well so has the original religion that all these cults have sprouted from by the evangelists are making much more of a fortune because they are more organized and their indoctrination is deeper than the catholic faiths. They have just modernized religion and are more vibrantly marketing the product that of an adapted Christianity that can not be called anything other than pure cultish in its nature.
The indoctrination is so deep that the followers will not have there faith questioned nor have they the ability to question the faith because to do so they think they will go to hell. To me that’s sad and I feel deeply sorry for these poor souls that are being conned out of their hard earn cash. To them the word cult is blasphemous when referred to the Cult they have been indoctrinated into.
By an by its always has seem crazy to me why many Christian cults are sending out missionaries to Christian Countries to convert Christians. But this is a money making business and the bigger the flock the more money made. That’s of course the Catholic Churches principle on birth control, the bigger the population the more money made.
