The next Saturday Breakfast Fellowship will be on Saturday, January 18 th at 8:00 AM.
Our topic this month will be on cults and religions. This topic started when I read an article in the Boston Globe written by a person who had left a cult. They talked about the cult and its interpretation of Christianity as “God’s True Religion.” This got me thinking and asking questions.
There are many definitions of “cult” in dictionaries and Wikipedia. One definition (from Merriam Webster) is “A religion regarded as unorthodox or spurious.” There are other definitions but this one will lead us into our discussion on how cults are seen by Christian organizations and how the Bible cautions Christians.
The first two links below discuss cults from a Christian standpoint and identifying cults. The third looks at cults more from a sociological standpoint. I know the last article is long; however, it has a good discussion of cults and religion.
We will start with breakfast and follow with fellowship and discussion.

The Truth Twisters
There’s no sharp distinction between cult and regular religion
