A Cult is a religion with no political power, and with a few hundred members instead of a few million.
No difference,brainwashing is brianwashing
Number of people.
A religion is constructive, a cult is destructive. Religions build great civilizations; cults withdraw from them or (in the case of the Wahhabis of Saudi Arabia and other 'Islamic' fundamentalists) ruin them.
"Religion is constructive" Tell that to the all those burned at the stake as witches.
Tell that to Galileo who was in-prisoned by the church that didn't want to hear what his telescope found.
Tell that to various countries throughout the world that had their cultures and traditions banished by missionaries and replaced by Christian points-of-view to reflect their new found god.
I guess constructive is subjective.
Yea, tax exempt status. I kid.
cult is just used if you don't like a religion
This is a great site.I love to this site.
This is a great web site.I love to this site.Thank you so much.
Ha. that guy spelled imprisoned wrong. A cult is headed by a living "master" character put forth to brainwash members. Cults give members assigned seats in their worship places and deprive them of outside contact. Christianity itself is not a religion, but a belief.
Thanks for pointing out my spelling mistake. Very Christian of you. Care to comment on the points I was making?
I knew a guy once who was in a cult, and he was drugged, brainwashed, and almost killed..
Religion is an established foundation stemming from thousands of years of belief. A cult is an temporary organization of people who share a common belief.
Nothing if more permanent than that which is temporary. Therefore if a cult lasts long enough, it becomes a religion. All religions start as cults, imo.
You have all the relevant options as choices don't you RG?
I neeeed that stuff, OKAY?
Cults are more expensive
