The Language and Mindset of Cultists
What is a Cult???
According to Webster’s Dictionary…..a cult is… “A system of religious worship or rites and ceremonies”
According to secular reference tools (dictionary)…. Christianity is a Cult…
What Webster’s does not elaborate upon …..
Is that a cult has another defining factor…
Cults are followings of Personage and their Philosophies and Morality and Ethics….
Cults are religious followings of people (most of the time one person) and their belief on things
Christianity is not a cult…
Because…
It does not fit either criteria….
1) It is not mere conduct of rites and ceremonies, it is a personal relationship with God
2) Jesus and “his Philosophies and Morals and Ethics’…..are not the views of a mere human person. They are Absolute Truth and the basis of which all other beliefs are false…..
If Jesus were not actually and fully in fact The Truth ..The Son of God Almighty….Christianity would be a non responsive hollow explosion of words and powerlessness as cults are….
1 Corinthians 15:17
and if Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still in your sins.
Should Jesus not actually be Jesus…
And actually be the Messiah…
Christianity is as valueless as a dead hollow cult….
He is Truth though!
John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
It is this rock..
This standard..
Which is the reference of comparison for all other beliefs, religions, and ways of life
Most Cults, if not all have some very common threads
They exist in …Language and Mindset
The specifics of how these two things pervert the truth is to varying extremes….
Here are Some cults … and their Founders… (so you have reference as to what a cult is)
Mormonism… Joseph Smith
Christian Science.. Mary Baker Eddy
Church of Scientology.. L Ron Hubbard
Jehovah Witness.. Charles Taze Russell
Branch Davidians.. David Koresh
Scientology…L Ron Hubbard
Seventh Day Adventism…William Miller
Unification Church… Yong Myung Moon
Worldwide Church of God.. Herbert W. Armstrong
The Baha’i faith… Mirza Ali Muhammad
Unity movement.. Charles and Myrtle Fillmore
The Way International..Victor Paul Wierwille
The International Church of Christ…Kip McKeen
The Church of Almighty God….Zhao Weishan
This world … Is replete with CULTS
How do we begin to make a difference?
How do we know which way is right?
If I took a Mormon, Jehovah Witness, a True Christian, and a Universalist and put them all in one room…..
And then invited a non Christian in…
How would they know the difference and truth of what was talked about????
It is an apparent mess….
The solution revolves around Three Things….

For more of our posts responding to alleged Bible contradictions check out our .

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Was Zechariah Iddo’s son or grandson?

Here are the two answers which the skeptic believes indicate a Bible contradiction:

Zechariah was Iddo’s son.

When the prophets, Haggai the prophet and Zechariah the son of Iddo, prophesied to the Jews who were in Judah and Jerusalem in the name of the God of Israel, who was over them,” (Ezra 5:1)

And the elders of the Jews were successful in building through the prophesying of Haggai the prophet and Zechariah the son of Iddo. And they finished building according to the command of the God of Israel and the decree of Cyrus, Darius, and Artaxerxes king of Persia.” (Ezra 6:14)

Zechariah was Iddo’s grandson.

In the eighth month of the second year of Darius, the word of the Lord came to Zechariah the prophet, the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo saying,” (Zechariah 1:1)

(All Scriptural quotation comes from the New American Standard Bible)

Here’s a closer look at whether or not there is a contradiction:
