From the beginning of the church, the Bible clearly warns us that there will be divisions (breaking away, apostasy, heresy Rom.16:17-18).
1 John 2:19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us. (KJV) John is NOT writing about TRUE believers! He is writing about those who denied Jesus came in the flesh . . . did NOT believe God came as a Man and rose again bodily after His death. These men left the fellowship of believerswho held to the apostles doctrine. Today many "denominations" just as false have arisen in the church.
What Is a Cult?
Cults are groups that break off from the conservative Bible teaching church, taking unto themselves very different views and doctrines. In other words (my words) they cannot and will not tolerate the Truth of the Bible.
All through both the Old Testament and New Testament, we are warned of false prophets and false teachers and false teaching (doctrines). Below are just a few examples.
False prophets: Deut.13:1-11; 18:20-22; Jer.23:13,26,32; etc.
False teachers: Mat.15:9,14; 2 Cor.11;4,13; 2 Pet.2:1; 1 John 4:1; etc.
Jesus warned of false prophets and teachers in Mat.7:15; 24:23-24; Mark 13:6,21-22. Paul warned also in 2 Cor. 11:14; Gal.1:8-9; Col.2:8-9; 2 Thes. chap.2; 1 Tim.1:3-4; 4:1-2. By Peter in 1 Pet.5:8-9; 2 Pet.2:1-3. By John in 1 John 2:18-23. Nearly every book in the Bible mentions a warning of error and falsehood.
Cults are dangerous in two different ways. One type of cult can be dangerous to a person's soul . . . spiritually, they can hurt you. Another type of cult is dangerous to a person's physical well-being. There are two kinds of cults, Christian and non-Christian.
The Christian cult claims to have the truth of Christ and salvation but they deny one or more of the basic doctrines of the Christian faith. But, when questions are asked, the wrong answers are given. Who is Jesus? Is He the only Way of salvation? Is the Bible the final source of authority? Cults call themselves Christian BUT take C-H-R-I-S-T out of Christian . . . what do you have left? NOTHING! MOST cults teach "another Jesus" (2 Cor.11:4). Cults do not agree with the Biblical Christian faith.
The word "cult" is not in the KJV of the Bible . . . BUT it does address religious errors in teaching and practice. The Bible does NOT take false teachers lightly and it does not excuse them! (Mat.18:6; Mark 9:42; Luke 17:2). The Bible uses words such as "heresy," "heretic," "false teachers," "false prophets," "false apostles, and "false Christ's". The Bible warns against heresy, false teachings, false doctrines, and false prophecy and tells us to refute, reproof, correct, and expose it by defending the Truth (Jude 3).
