Video answer: What makes something a cult?
Top best answers to the question «What are the characteristics of a cult»
- It should be noted that a common characteristic of a cult (in its second definition above) is that it will not bow to any outside authority nor allow itself to be scrutinized. Any group seeking the approval of the Church is most likely not a cult; any group that has received such approval is certainly not one.
- One of the marks of a cult is that it preaches a different gospel, that is, a false way of salvation (2 Corinthians 11:4; Galatians 1:6–9). Most false gospels teach a form of either salvation by works or universalism .
