Bible Quotes

Do not turn to mediums or necromancers; do not seek them out, and so make yourselves unclean by them: I am the Lord your God.
(Leviticus 19:31) ESV 

If there is found among you, within any of your towns that the Lord your God is giving you, a man or woman who does what is evil in the sight of the Lord your God, in transgressing his covenant, and has gone and served other gods and worshiped them, or the sun or the moon or any of the host of heaven, which I have forbidden, and it is told you and you hear of it, then you shall inquire diligently, and if it is true and certain that such an abomination has been done in Israel, then you shall bring out to your gates that man or woman who has done this evil thing, and you shall stone that man or woman to death with stones.
(Deuteronomy 17:2-5) ESV 

There shall not be found among you anyone who burns his son or his daughter as an offering, anyone who practices divination or tells fortunes or interprets omens, or a sorcerer or a charmer or a medium or a necromancer or one who inquires of the dead, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord. And because of these abominations the Lord your God is driving them out before you.
(Deuteronomy 18:10-12) ESV 

The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.
(1 Corinthians 2:14) ESV 

Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
(Galatians 5:19-21) ESV 

Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons,
(1 Timothy 4:1) ESV 

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,
(2 Timothy 3:16) ESV 

For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
(Hebrews 4:12) ESV 

But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction.
(2 Peter 2:1) ESV 

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.
(1 John 4:1) ESV 

For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not confess the coming of Jesus Christ in the flesh. Such a one is the deceiver and the antichrist. Watch yourselves, so that you may not lose what we have worked for, but may win a full reward. Everyone who goes on ahead and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God. Whoever abides in the teaching has both the Father and the Son. If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house or give him any greeting, for whoever greets him takes part in his wicked works.
(2 John 1:7-11) ESV

Cults and the Bible

Some experts claim that there are some 700 cults in the world today, while others place the number at 3,000.

The problem comes when some group or another is labelled as a cult. The logical question that we must ask is what is a cult? While there are no universally agreed upon definitions of a cult, there are some generally recognizable traits that can help us identify whether or not a belief system fits into the category of a cult.

Generally speaking is a cult is a group of people, who claim to be a part of a larger body of believers but whose belief system varies greatly from the larger system to which they claim to belong. Every major religious systems have their splinter groups of cults.

The first identifying mark of a cult is that they claim new revelation. Most begin with a leader who claims that he or she has a special pipeline to God and that God speaks, often, only through them.

The Bible warns, "But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed" (Galatians 1:8, ESV). Despite this warning, more than one cult claimed that they received special angelic revelation that changes the very core of the Gospel message.

The second identifying mark that something is a cult is a denial or diminishing of the authority of the Bible. If a group claims to believe the Bible, plus a new writing, you can be fairly certain you are dealing with a cult. Cults many times claim that they believe the Bible, but it is the Bible plus the writings of their leader. Ultimately it is the writings of the leader that supersede the Biblical text.

Cultists distort the Word of God to fit what they want to believe. For instance Jim Jones the founder of Jonestown, placed himself in authority over the Bible. He would use the Bible when it suited him, but like all cultists his use of the Bible was a greatly distorted one.

Whenever you have a group that claims to believe in the Bible plus their own writings, chances are you are dealing with a cult.

Along with distorting the Bible, cults distort the biblical view of God and Jesus, almost always denying the physical resurrection of Jesus from the dead. For example, one group claims that only the Christ Spirit rose from the grave, not the body of Jesus. It was a spiritual resurrection; not a physical one. Almost all cults deny the Trinity and all deny the absolute deity of Christ.

Finally, cults typically deny salvation by grace, and emphasize adherence to certain laws, practices, and actions as necessary for salvation. The Bible says, "For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast." (Ephesians 2:8-9, ESV).

Any group that denies one or more of the fundamental, essential doctrines of Christianity can be and should properly be labelled as a cult. The Bible says "These people left our churches, but they never really belonged with us; otherwise they would have stayed with us. When they left, it proved that they did not belong with us." (1 John 2:19, NLT)5
