Should the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints be categorized under new religions and cults?
Cults refer to religions in which the practices and rituals appear quite bizarre or abnormal. Of course, cults were often compared to current religions even though those current religions practices and rituals appear quite bizarre and abnormal to the rest of us, hence all religions can be considered cults.
This definition sound like every mens club elks club boy scout and family rituals.
I like this definition
a cult is “a religious group that denies one or more of the fundamentals of biblical truth.” In simpler terms, a cult is a group that teaches something that will cause a person to remain unsaved if he/she believes it. As distinct from a religion, a cult is a group that claims to be part of the religion, yet denies essential truth(s) of that religion. A Christian cult is a group that denies one or more of the fundamental truths of Christianity, while still claiming to be Christian.
Another category? Don't we have enough categories already?
