In general, a cult is a small religious group outside the established churches, usually with a charismatic leader who is a strong authority figure. One psychiatrist has described cults as "religions that haven't grown up yet."

There are some Christians who believe that Christians should not visit doctors, but rely solely upon prayer for healing. They claim (falsely) that all healings in the Bible were strictly the result of prayer. It is true that the gospels contain many examples of Jesus (and even the apostles) healing the sick and lame. However, the healings of Jesus were given as a sign of the legitimacy of His claim of Messiahship, since the Old Testament said that the Messiah would heal the blind and the deaf. Despite claims to the contrary, there were physicians at the time the New Testament was written. In fact, one of the writers of the gospels, Luke, was a physician. Jesus seemed to know that doctors could heal people, since He said, "It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick," giving legitimacy to medicine as a healing art. Jesus also quoted from the proverb, "Physician, heal yourself!," indicating that physicians of the time were healing people. The Greek word for "physician" is derived from the root verb iaomai, which mean "to cure" or "heal," indicating that a physician's job in the first century was to heal people.

Christians should not rely solely upon prayer to treat diseases that are reliably treated through modern medicine. This doesn't mean that we don't pray for the sick. When Christian parents let a child die from a disorder that is readily treatable by modern medicine, it says to the world that we are stupid and uncaring. However, since God calls certain individuals to serve others through medicine, aren't those people really an answer to our prayers? So when your child gets sick, use your faith to seek medical professionals whom God has provided for their healing. And, yes, pray for your child and also for the doctors that God would provide them wisdom and discernment in your child's treatment.

Many Preachers do seem to count on your ignorance of the Word of God as they often do also try convince you you're way too dumb to argue with them, for God has spoken to them directly on the matter, and if you challenge them they tend to ignore you or kick you out..

Early Christians gained a reputation among non-believers for loving one another and being charitable toward the poor in their midst. But that is clearly now how it is these days, these days the privileged few "in ministry" fatten themselves at the expense of the struggling wage slaves out in the pews. Instead of being tenderly cared for by so-called shepherds, poor "pew Christians" get threatened that God's gonna sick satan on them for failure to pay the preacher his cut before buying groceries and paying the rent. Satan now loves to see their kids go hungry while poor Christian parents pay tithes "by faith", sacrificing the thin sliver of income left after rent, transportation and utilities are taken care of. God is NOT not at all pleased with any of such religious persons.

" When you're about to be thrown out onto the street for lack of rent money, you just try to get one of those tithe-collecting tycoons to share with you the way the first century Christians did with those in need. Yeah, right, he'll "PRAY" for you, that is, if you can get past his entourage of ushers. " Who likely first will say your are poor cause you alone are at fault, are in sin or the lying, bad preacher will say you did not give the money to me, you gave it to God and God alone now, next is the one who will pay you, help you.. such hypocrisy too. Tithe givers and tithe Collectors live high on the hog while the poor "pew Christians" struggle to keep food on the table, a roof over their heads.

Jesus himself did not live off the proceeds of tithes, So now why all the fuss over one or two isolated and misapplied verses ABOUT TITHING in Malachi 3? I Tim.2:5 which states that there is only ONE Mediator between God and man, Christ Jesus. And not some other human being that must now accepts his direct representative, supposedly on God's behalf. And NOWHERE in the New Testament does God even authorize him to take up, spend any of tithes in His Name. "Spiritual tyrants would demote us from our exalted place in Christ and relegate us to being tribute-paying peons who work and slave to build THEIR religious empires. The false Tithing preachers do radically alters our relationship with God, from being His child receiving His favors solely through His grace in Christ, to some hard-nosed "prosperity partnership" whereby God only dispenses answers to prayer in exchange for cold, hard cash.

God's idea of a real Church now would be where where everybody was just one big happy family of brothers and sisters behaving in love , decency, honesty too... but even many homes, families do not have this and why? The devil, sin and self centeredness, false pride run the homes and many churches, church pastors now too.
