So the Jsw and LDS have been getting called cults alot lately because they have extra information other than the bible that they follow. And because they do not follow the "normal"christian teachings. So are athiests in a cult? We don't believe in the bible at all and believe many other books as true. Are the earthen religions cults too? They not only don't follow the bible but they definatly have many diffrent gods (and goddesses oh my) that they believe in before they would put faith in god or the bible. So who all is a cult any one that does not buy into your brand of faith? Yes if you look at the technical term of cult you will see that all faiths could be put in it. So if you are going to sugar coat it like that than why not admit that your brand of faith is also a cult? Maybe because it means more to you than you are admiting when you are putting others down?Answer Question

I think people are mixing the word cult with occult. Christianity is considered a cult by the dictionary term. Occult is the bad name. Occults are the ones that are secretive and do things that are questionable.
People should be aware of the false prophets that we were warned of in both either cult or occult. They are everywhere. God bless

The bible itself contradicts the practicesin other books of the bible. It is all in how you read and interpret something that has been translated and retranslated multiple times. If you sit down and read the diffrent bieliefs of these two faiths with an open mind you might be able to see how their conclusions do go along with the bible if it is interpreted in a certain way. You don't have to agree with the way they see things to see how it is possible.

Oh lord a website says all these different religions are cults, so of course they must be........
wikipedia has a 'cult checklist' that I thought was interesting. I really don't see why we need to label any group as a cult. There are tons of definitions for the word and it can be used to label pretty much any group of people
