From what I've read of the founder, I think he was a fraud. It seems to me he just made it up as he went along, claiming to have divine visions.
But, as I understand it, the church now is basically like another denomination of Christianity.
Do you think it's a legitimate religion? Would you have a problem with a president who subscribes to this faith?
All organized religions are cults...all depend on repetition of beliefs to take hold of our actions to have any effect in our lives.
Cult-ivate, cult-ure, and cult. All are mental brainwashing. Society and religinons cult-ivate the mind with habitual actions and thoughts to take control of the person.
It's just that since everyone is in the cult of society and some accepted religion, it's not thought of as being a cult. It's just "normal".
But what we consider to be cults are simply an extreme of everyday life.
