1993 CULT CATALOG
This Hate literature was prepared by Watchman Fellowship, Inc.
It is a list of churches and religions that don't meet Rick
Branch's and James Walker's (two Satanists) approval.
Authorship: Rick Branch and James Walker of Arlington, Texas
Scope: Each year Watchman Fellowship publishes a "Cult Catalog"
issue of the Watchman Expositor containing thumb-nail sketches
in alphabetical order of cults, occultic organizations, New Age
groups, new religious movements, and related terms and doctrines.
This year's issue contains more than 200 new listings bringing
the total number of records to over 1,000. Watchman Fellowship
maintains over 6,000 files on questionable religious movements
This index is not intended to be an exhaustive list. The
absence of a religious movement from the Cult Catalog does not
mean that Watchman Fellowship endoreses the organization.
Entries include: new religious movements and entities related
to them, cults, occult groups, and organizations and businesses
linked to the New Age movement. By listing these groups,
Watchman Fellowship is in no way implying that these people
(their followers or leaders) are evil or immoral. It simply
means that such groups promote doctrine or practices which may
be considered outside the realm of historic Christianity.
Cult: In most cases the group claims to be Christian, but
because of their major beliefs in God, Jesus Christ,
and Salvation, the organization is not considered by
Watchman Fellowship to be a part of orthodox,
Occult: The word "occult" in this publication is used to
describe any attempt to gain supernatural power or
knowledge apart from the God of the Bible.
Generally, it refers to witchcraft, Satanism, neo-
paganism or various forms of psychic discernment.
New Age: The term "New Age" is used herein as an umbrella term
to describe organizations which seem to exhibit one
or more of the following beliefs:
(1) All is one: all reality is part of the whole;
(2) Everything is God and God is everything.
(3) Man is God or a part of God.
(4) Man never dies, but continues to live through
(5) Man can create his own reality through
