mormoncult.net is a Mormon Cult Defender site. But with their choice of it's website name it could possibly deceive those who seek help from the dangerous mind control of the Mormon Cult be led to mormoncult.net instead for it's brainwashing.
It starts out with the lame and totally false apples and oranges comparison that if the Mormons (Church of Jesus Christ Latter Day Saints) are a Cult then so is all of Christianity. BALONEY!
Below is one of their lies:
“What is the definition of a cult?”
When having this conversation in person, most people stumbled through their reply, usually barely making it through a coherent sentence. When having this conversation online, people would take longer than normal to respond as they whisked off to search Google.
What I learned was most people don’t even know the definition of a “cult.” Instead, it has become a catch-all for “any religion I don’t understand or like.” Well, then, is the Mormon Church a cult? By that definition, I suppose it could be added to the ranks of every religion and belief system who has its group of detractors and critics.
The definition of a Cult is NOT “any religion I don’t understand or like.”
A Cult is a group or movement exhibiting a great or excessive devotion or dedication to some person, idea or thing and employing unethically manipulative techniques of persuasion and control (e.g. isolation from former friends and family, debilitation, use of special methods to heighten suggestibility and subservience, powerful group pressures, information management, suspension of individuality or critical judgment, promotion of total dependency on the group and fear of consequences of leaving it, etc. designed to advance the goals of the group's leaders to the actual or possible detriment of members, their families, or the community.
That fits the Mormon Cult to a "T"!
more from this garbage site:
If you look at most reference books for the definition of a “cult”, you will likely find some or all of the following:
1. a particular system of religious worship, esp. with reference to its rites and ceremonies.
2. an instance of great veneration of a person, ideal, or thing, esp. as manifested by a body of admirers.
3. a group or sect bound together by veneration of the same thing, person, ideal, etc.
Sure. We have a system of worship, with rites and ceremonies (e.g., baptism). More importantly, we have great veneration (respect or awe) for Jesus Christ. Indeed, the 14 million members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are bound together through the common belief that He is the Savior of the world.
Could all of Christianity then be considered a cult using these definitions?
Sure. There is a system of worship, with rites and ceremonies (e.g., baptism). There is great veneration for Jesus Christ. And ~2 billion Christians are bound together through the common belief that He is the Savior of the world.
I’d encourage you to make your own conclusion. However, using the common definitions above, it seems like every religion in the world would be a cult!
That is NOT the modern definition of a Cult. How could a Cult like the Mormon Cult or People's Temple be defined as such? No way. mormoncult.net is a pack of lies!
Any Cult that preaches that God was once a man and that a Mormon man (naturally not a "lowly" woman also in their blasphemy because Mormons are deeply misogynist) can become a "God" is a pack of LIES!
Please for your own good, stay away from mormoncult.net for your own spiritual good and sanity.
