Jesus, Name Above All Names

Cult?

The definition of cult depends upon who is making it up.
The criteria of a cult and a cult leader is made up by those who are part of a cult but have excused themselves because they have made sure their list of markers will not implicate or target them.

I have read down the list to see how Jesus might be guilty of being labeled a cult:

1)–a small religious group that is not part of a larger and more accepted religion and that has beliefs regarded by many people as extreme or dangerous (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/cult);

Jesus is guilty

2)– a religion regarded as unorthodox or spurious; also: its body of adherents (ibid);

Jesus is guilty

3)–a group or sect bound together by veneration of the same thing, person, ideal, etc.(http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/cult);

Jesus is guilty

4)–Usually, though, a cult is more narrowly defined, and the word refers to an unorthodox sect whose members distort the original doctrines of the religion. In a Christian context, the definition of a cult is, specifically, “a religious group that denies one or more of the fundamentals of biblical truth.” A cult is a group that teaches doctrines that, if believed, will cause a person to remain unsaved. A cult claims to be part of a religion, yet it denies essential truth(s) of that religion. Therefore, a Christian cult will deny one or more of the fundamental truths of Christianity while still claiming to be Christian.

Jesus is guilty
____________________________________

Catholics and Protestants claim anyone who denies the trinity has denied a fundamental biblical truth and therefore a cult.

Catholics and Protestants have excused themselves from any definition of a cult by the way they invented the criteria.

Who gave them this authority?
What is the source of this authority?
Who made them judges over all others?

If you check the list of criteria on what a cult is, you will find nothing that make satanism a cult.

You will find nothing that makes Freemasonry a cult.

You will find nothing that makes the Jesuits a cult.

You will find nothing that makes the Catholic church a cult.

You will find nothing that makes Protestant churches that dabble in witchcraft a cult.

All under the protective shield of the trinity doctrine.

But the trinitarian club can disagree on the confession booth, the rosary, use of the crucifix, celebration of the “host” (communion wafer), prayers to Mary as the mediatrix, purgatory and limbo, sprinkling and pouring baptisms, baptisms of infants, celebration of the mass, holy water, making the sign of the cross, the pope as the pontifex max, secret orders that have deadly blood oaths, salvation by faith and works, predestination, homosexual orientation, drinking alcohol, use of tobacco, idolatry, priestly garments, and Mary as the mother of God.

And they do not consider such who disagree a cult.

The accusation of “cult” is used to label churches and pastors who refuse to be forced to accept either the Catholic religion or one of the many Protestant religions.

The New Testament did not have a doctrine explicitly on cults.

The Jews in the Temple considered Jesus a cult leader and his followers as cult members.

Many today continue to view Jesus as a son of satan.

We do know that Jesus would have rejected the entire Catholic church and her Protestant daughters.

The Church of Matthew 16:18 is not the Catholic or Protestant churches. We know this because the gates of hell have prevailed within these two groups.

I am amazed how easily the accusation “cult” is used and thrown around to stop the success of Christians who want 100% restoration of the first Church.

If a person chooses not to accept anything that came from Rome and or her Protestant daughters, they are labeled a cult.

If a minister starts a pioneer work and preaches salvation by faith according to Acts 2:38 he is labeled a cult leader. Why? Because he has not accepted the works salvation tradition of Rome.

If this minister makes converts of souls who were lost in their sins, and he baptizes them according to Acts 2:38 he is labeled a cult leader. Why? Because he did not sprinkle or pour the water in the trinitarian formula “Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.”

If the members of this congregation worship in Spirit and in Truth as preached by the Apostles, and reject Rome and her Protestant daughters they are now labeled a cult. Why? Because they are not a part of what the cult writers call “mainstream Christianity.”

Now exactly what is “mainstream Christianity?”

It is Rome and all of her perverted and corrupt traditions, adopted paganism, and invented doctrines. It is Protestantism with their separate perverted and corrupt traditions, adopted paganism, and invented doctrines.

WHat is amazing here, is that neither Jesus or first Christians were a part of this so-called “mainstream Christianity.” This means the so-called “mainstream Christianity” is nothing more than corruptstream false Christianity.

When I hear and read accusations of cult, used to judge and condemn those not Catholic or Protestant: I think of Jesus Christ. No wonder he is on the outside of the Laodicaea church. The Laodicaea church may have been either a Catholic or Protestant church. They put Jesus out, shut him out, closed and locked the door against him. Why else is he knocking unless they had latched it locked on the inside?

I no longer accept the Catholic and Protestant invented identity of what constitutes a cult.

I will consider all people as either believers or unbelievers. And this will be based upon compliance with the New Testament. I will not apply creeds, traditions, invented doctrines, or Catholic/Protestant as proofs of validity as a New Testament Church.

You can use the accusation “cult” against those who believe in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.

You can use the slander “cult” against ministers and church members who openly refuse to be called Catholic or Protestant.

You can use the word “cult” against those you hate: but remember one thing. It is still a sin to bear false witnesses. If you tell this lie on a minister or a child of God who has been saved by grace through faith: you might as well hang a millstone around your neck because you will have offended a soul for whom Jesus loved and died.

If you must use the word “cult” against someone you hate, I urge you on your next trip to the church: check in your fanaticism at the door. Your lies and false witness will not be welcome in heaven before the throne of God.

Catholic and Protestant churches do not label the president of the United States a cult leader nor Americans who idolize and venerate him as a cult?

Catholic and Protestant churches do label all Oneness groups and members a cult.
Catholic and Protestant churches do label the UPCI, PAW, PAJC, ALJC, AWCF, ACI, AIM, and WPF as cult denominations.

UPCI, PAW, PAJC, ALJC, AWCF, ACI, AIM, and WPF ministers and members now label Oneness Ministers and churches a cult unless they accept them as the New Testament Church.

UPCI, PAW, PAJC, ALJC, AWCF, ACI, AIM, and WPF ministers and members will quickly use the definition of cult as invented by Catholic and Protestant churches. Although they cry foul when the same criteria is applied against them.

We are in the time of the Church age when the great falling away is sweeping millions down to a devil’s hell. Worldliness, compromise, acceptance of sin, homosexual depravity, idolatry, liberalism, progressivism, and acceptance of the antichrist program is capturing churches and members.

Any Minister that questions, speaks against, or writes against this rampant apostasy within the UPCI, PAW, PAJC, ALJC, AWCF, ACI, AIM, and WPF groups is now labeled a cult.

Disagree with anything within the UPCI, PAW, PAJC, ALJC, AWCF, ACI, AIM, and WPF groups and their doctrines and practices, traditions and rituals, and they grab the Catholic and Protestant cult list and apply them to people they hate.

Let anyone depart from the shelter of Mystery Babylon and its systems and they are quick to pounce on them to destroy them, their reputation, their character, and their name. The devil has his change agents and protects them with his own list accusations. The accuser of the Brethren has his ministers and churches.

These call themselves Christian but refuse to call anyone a Christian who disagrees with their doctrines and practices. Yet these so-called Christians will disagree with Catholic and Protestant doctrines and practices but NEVER CALL THEM A CULT?

If you must use the word “cult” against someone, what is your motive and purpose?

Are you trying to stop the success of those reaching back to restore the first Church in all of its doctrine, faith, practices, order, and conduct?

Check yourself and see if you are in the faith once delivered to the saints. Or have you accepted many traditions of Rome and Protestantism and now call this mess the faith of the early Apostles and saints?

Jesus will separate the sheep and goats, the wheat and tares, and the true Church from all gates of hell.

I said so, because the Word tells me so.
