Swedenborg Foundation posted by Mac on 07/09/2003 at 14:15:27 from IP#

"Swedenborg Foundation, Emanuel Swedenborg - New York, NY: Denies Trinity, Rejects many books of the Bible. Latter day prophet, Spiritism, Automatic writing."

How weird. The Swedenborg Foundation is a publishing company, not a church, nor a cult, nor a religion. There are a number of different churches that do follow Swedenborg to one degree or another, though. As far as I know, though "Automatic writing" has nothing to do with anything with them, and "spiritism" is considered by them anathema.

It's one thing to disparage heterodox religious groups, it's entirely another thing to outright lie about them.

Maybe somebody can help clear this up for me? My mom is 83 and in questionable health. For several years she has been buying the Alan Carter yearly horoscope. This year I saw the order card, and it is from the Unitology people. I am not familiar with them, except that my ex-mother-in-law, a very Godly and Christian woman, says they are a cult and that true Christians will have nothing to do with them. The web sites I found say very little, except to say that Unitologists believe in astrology. I intend to hit the library, but, meanwhile, any information would be appreciated. Thanks.

Does anyone really know? posted by Wolfgang H. L. on 08/02/2001 at 18:39:28 from IP#

From websters dictionary, the definition of a 'Cult'

Function: noun
Usage: often attributive
Etymology: French & Latin; French culte, from Latin cultus care, adoration, from colere to cultivate -- more at WHEEL
Date: 1617
1 : formal religious veneration : WORSHIP
2 : a system of religious beliefs and ritual; also : its body of adherents
3 : a religion regarded as unorthodox or spurious; also : its body of adherents
4 : a system for the cure of disease based on dogma set forth by its promulgator
5 a : great devotion to a person, idea, object, movement, or work (as a film or book); especially : such devotion regarded as a literary or intellectual fad b : a usually small group of people characterized by such devotion


....perhaps those who name and determine who falls under the cult category have their own definitions and have sensationalized the idea of cult as a bad thing. And then they want us to whorship their Messianic definitions and feel good about being the watch dogs of those who can't decide for themselves and feel that they must be the protectors of the Fold of Mankind.

When ever I hear the cry and hue of these self appointed police, am I to have blind faith in their knowledge and research techniques that may not include a clear and concise seeing beyond judgement and finite intellect. I don't think so!!

I simply look through my Heart to check something out if it would serve me for my highest good. I don't go and ask a Cult Specialist why should I give up my power of disernment. I am not intellectually nor spiritually handicapped!


The 'Cult Watch Dogs' are becoming a Cult on to themselves claiming to be a cult experts.

A CULT is = "great devotion to a person, idea, object, movement, or work"




People need to discover and choose for themselves and filter out what doesn't work for them, they were born with a brain! Right!!!!

Ah the beauty of free speech and freedom of choice.

There are probably too many Cult Specialists running around with a saviour complex but then again those who are in need do provide a sense of job security.

So its all just so perfect just as it is and tremendously humerous.

I had a friend calling me up to warn me about this and that Cult. Okay.
And I asked him a simple question? "I appreciate as a friend you love me and want to peotect me. But who asked you to be my Saviour"

I told him that his own mental projections and fear were clouding the real issues. I did not need to be invalidated with incomplete information.

In order to really check something out you don't gather a thousand opinions.
You approach diversity as not seperate from you and then truly explore your desired field and interest on an experential level!

Most journalists do a half assed job and gather data without procuring experience first hand.

And then they get to 'Label it' like they discovered the cure.

We need to demand experential journalism rather than the whimpy kind of event oriented exposes' that really go no where!!!

Cults, organizations etc are all methods.....thats not really important as what is the INTENTION of the organization? Ask! Ask! Ask!

Breathing is a method to get oxygen. What's the Intention?

To stay alive!!

What's the deeper intention?

To discover what's breathing you??

Happy dicoveries!!

god bless you all

I am looking for information regarding a cult in St. Louis, Missouri. It used to use the "Mangia Italiano" restaurant on South Grand as a gathering spot. Might be called "Earth Church of Amargi". A friend of mine got involved with them and ended up dead. Would appreciate any information.

Zerubbabel, Inc. posted by Steve Rafalsky on 02/03/2001 at 01:18:14 from IP#

Zerubbabel, now based in Blowing Rock, NC, certainly IS a cult. I know, as I was under its sway for a while, and when I confronted the teachers, especially Page Prewitt, on its distortions -- and sometimes outright contradictions -- of Biblical truth, I was reviled.

It is based on the LATER writings of Norman Grubb (he died a few years ago), who went off the deep end into serious deception, as he himself records in his autobiography, "Once Caught, No Escape." His error can be seen clearly in one of his latest books, "Yes, I am." And those who pick up his "mantle" go further off than he. Cornerstone did an article on the group, while under their earlier name, Union Life, perhaps in the early '90s. Dave Hunt, in his, "The Seduction of Christianity," mentions Grubb, Union life, Bill Volkman, and their ideas (pages 80-85.)

I've written two essays on the group, and if there's a need, I could type them up and make then available.

Watchman Fellowship (who put together this page) is a discernment ministry I trust and support.

False Teachings...I think not. posted by Louise Cantrell on 02/01/2001 at 09:29:12 from IP#

This REALLY hurts! I happen to be a member of the Brotherhood of Eternal Truth in Indiana. I drive for over an hour with my husband and son each Sunday to attend church there. Why? Because they teach what Jesus, tolerance, charity and healing. I can understand that mainstream Christianity has a problem with the fact that we allow women and gays to serve in the ministry, but are you guys trying to say that our teachings are false because of one thing you disagree with? We believe in Jesus, we love Jesus. The Bible talks about people having the gift of prophecy, and that is our focus in the BET church, same as the gift of tongues is the focus in a Pentecostal church. Look at the book of Daniel...dream analysis. And how many times did Christ touch someone and heal them? Oh, Pentecostal churches believe in healing by laying hands too, are their teachings also false?

I joined a liberal Christian church that has a focus on prophecy and healing, not a cult. Cults take your money and alienate you from everyone. The BET takes an offering like any other church and never requires that you cut ties with anyone. So how on Earth can you call us a cult. Yes, we interpret the Bible a lot more loosely than most, but we are not a cult. So if you think our tteachings are false, then go reread the new testament and pay attention to Jesus, not the flawed opinion of people like Paul who commented on him.

Jesus is the Light. He is LOVE, MERCY and JOY. And I am his servant.

God bless you all. I hope you will take us off of your 'cult' list now.
