Religions and Cults

Romney and his membership in a Cult raises its ugly head once more this election season distracting from the real problems in this country, The Economy and Jobs for the unemployed. Dictionary,com defines CULT as follows:

1. a particular system of a religious especially with reference to its rites and ceremonies.

       2. an instance of great veneration of a person,ideal, or thing, especially as manifested by a body o fadmirers

3. the object of such devotion.

4. a group or sect bound together by veneration of the same thing, person, ideal, etc.

Well by that definition there are over 30.000 CULTS of the Christian religion. Now Robert Jeffers called Rick Perry a “Genuine follower of Jesus Christ.” while calling Mitt Romney was not a Christian band Mormonism is a cult. That statement should cause all followers of the Christian religion to pause and reflect about their “Revealed Religion”. It is hard to define a Christian or a genuine followers of Christ by the Bible because each reader interprets the Biblical verses differently.

The followers of these different Christian Cults consider the members of the others to be cult members and not “True Christians” Different Sects of the Christian relion have caused the death or suffering of thousands if not millions. So goe the Violence of the Christian religion.

As Thomas Paine wrote in “The age of Reason”, The Calvinist, who dams children of a span long to hell to burn forever for the glory of God (and this is called Christianity) and the Universalist who preaches that all shall be saved and none shall be damned (and this also is call Christianity), boasts alike of theif holy “revealed” religion and their Christian faith.”

To call the Mormon denomination a cult and the Christian denominations not, by Jeferres requires a long stretch of the imagination. It is like the pot calling the kettle black. The Deist definition of a cult is better, I think, than the popular definition. Deists define a cult as “the embracing of unreasonable beliefs by a group of people.” Therefore the Mormon Revealed religion can also be concisered a cult. It has its own Holy book, founder, and followers, which like other revealed religions is nothing more than nonsense. It is hoped that soe day those peopled trapped in the reveled religions by fear will be come to their senses and begin basing their beliefs on oug god-given reason.

  1. Bachmann and Perry will hopefully bury themselves with such talk and I do hope the american people will not vote in another evangelical fundamentalist into office. Last time the evangelical vote was split because they would not vote for a Mormon. Nice thoughts here!

    • It is my personal feeling that religion and politics do not mix. The last time they did we were fighting the “evil axis” before that 2 world wars, before that the crusades and the inquisitions. Tahere is no place for religion in politics and such things should be practiced in the privacy of ones home.
