Claims by disgruntled church members labeling their former churches abusive and demanding, appear wilfully ignorant of the clearly stated mission of the church from the beginning.
The wildly inflated narratives seem more aimed at self congratulation and assurance, than any genuine “cult” experience.
It’s as if there is no idea what the church teaches and preaches from the beginning – as though its biblical moral standards, calls to separation, roles of men and women, and focus on evangelism, suddenly appear as a sinister agenda.
As if Jesus Himself would have escaped the labels “cult”, “high control/demand” and “exploitative techniques” (eg. “anyone who does not forsake all that he has, cannot be My disciple”)
However, a closer look at what the leading protagonists are saying, reveals an insidious common denominator of masquerading Calvinist (Reformed Theology) entities.
Some of the more vehement and vitriolic attacks against orthodox Christian churches – damning them as “heretical” and “cults”, emanate from crusading Calvinists. They are armed with the “authority” of these masquerading entities who produce much of the shady literature purporting to define cults.
For example, often cited as a valid authority on cults, is CARM (Christian Apologetics & Research Ministry)
However CARM is a “5 Point Calvinist entity. Their aim is to “promote and defend Calvinist doctrines, and persuade people to leave and avoid Christian, non-Calvinistic doctrinal points of view.”
CRI (Christian Research Institute) poses as an authority on cults but fails to declare a Calvinist upbringing of its leader.
The International Cultic Studies Association (ICSA) links to CRI and “provides no indication of how many of their characteristics are necessary for a group to be considered “cultic.”
“The checklist creators do not adequately define how much of certain practices or behaviors would constitute “excessive,” nor do they provide evidence that any of the practices listed are innately harmful. The ICSA list is “so broad that even mainstream organizations such as Evangelical Protestantism, the Roman Catholic Church, Buddhism and Hinduism fall within the criteria”
Equally Calvinist linked, is “Life After Potters House”, Cult Education Institute and the Australian Cult Information and Family Support (CIFS)
At Cult Education Institute, its Jewish activist director has a criminal history. No wonder his “cult expertise” has subsequently seen him convicted by a Court of “acting in a way so outrageous in character and so extreme in degree as to go beyond all possible bounds of decency”
Another interconnected cult “authority”, masquerading as objective, is Cult Awareness Network,(CAN).CAN declared bankruptcy after a jury found that it conspired to violate the civil rights and religious liberties of Jason Scott, a Pentecostalist, who had been forcibly kidnapped by Rick Ross, a CAN-referred deprogrammer
The Calvinistic, Got Questions is critical of churches that deny Calvinistic doctrines
They justify the historical torture and killing of Christians who denied Calvinism
In 1556, Calvin introduced the most incredibly severe laws against sexual immorality – “Sur les paillardises, adulteres, blasphemes, juremens et despitemens de Dieu”
Some Calvinist crusading Baptist churches express similar tyrannically puritan doctrines
Many followers of Calvinism smear their former churches as cults, interpreting challenges as commands, and suggestions as ultimatums, and ironically promote Calvinist entities as authorities
No wonder then, there is an aggressive trend among some who have rejected the sound, orthodox Christian doctrines of their former churches, to embrace Calvinism and use social media as a backlash against the sound biblical methods they were trained with
Encouraged to gleefully label their former churches cults, the irony is ignored of subsequently belonging to a “religious movement where their theological and positional title is named, not after Christ Who forgave those while He was dying, but after a man who lived 1500 years after Christ, and encouraged the burning alive of men and women at the stake”
“The very traits they point to as identifying cults are encouraged in those who subscribe to its tenets”
Nevertheless, “all Christians believe in concepts of God’s sovereignty, providence, and predestination
These are not concepts unique to Calvinism. Calvinism is simply a false interpretation of them.”
In fact “there are similarities between the ancient heresy of Gnosticism and present day Calvinism
The intellectual pride of the Gnostics refined away the gospel into a philosophy making salvation exclusive and not universal”
It is equally revealing that Calvinist “cult authorities” promote hypocritical, post modern humanist/socialist values that are assumed to be superior to age old, time tested, religious values and doctrines

There was rumors circulating about this cemetery in Humble, Tx. Just about 10 miles away from where I live, this place was hidden from sight, on the side of the rail road tracks. Even though it was rumored to be haunted, it seemed very peaceful.
St. Paul AME Church, 146 Years Old Presents a Historical Exhibit Highlighting the
African Methodist Churches of Texas
Houston, Texas – St. Paul African Methodist Episcopal Church will host a historical exhibit and theatrical presentation entitled, “A Gospel Singing and Storytelling”. The exhibit will encapsulate 165 years of the African Methodist Episcopal Church (AME) historical and spiritual legacy while celebrating their contributions to Texas which started in Galveston and now spans the entire state of Texas.
For almost two centuries, the AME Church has played a significant role in the spiritual programming and initiatives to uplift neighbors, empower children, and unite the communities throughout the state of Texas. “It is unique in that it is the first major religious denomination in the Western World that had its origin over sociological and theological beliefs and differences (AME, n.d.).”
The Mother Church of Texas, Reedy Chapel dates back to 1848 when Black slaves were given the land at 20th and Broadway by their white owners for a place of worship. The slaves worshipped outside until a structure was built. Reedy was one of the locations in which General Order #3 was read, announcing the end of slavery in Texas. After the end of slavery, Reedy also served as a school, educating freed men and women. Throughout her history Reedy has endured The Great Fire and numerous hurricanes but still stands. In 1866 following the close of the Civil War the church was organized as an A.M.E. Church (Reedy, n.d.).
The African Methodist Episcopal Church has a unique and glorious history. The church was born in protest against slavery – against dehumanization of African people, brought to the American continent as labor. The Mission of the African Methodist Episcopal Church is to minister to the spiritual, intellectual, physical, emotional, and environmental needs of all people by spreading Christ’s liberating gospel through word and deed. At every level of the Connection and in every local church, the African Methodist Episcopal Church shall engage in carrying out the spirit of the original Free African Society, out of which the AME Church evolved: that is, to seek out and save the lost, and serve the needy (AME, n.d.).”

High Risk for severe thunderstorms via Storm Prediction Center as of 12:01 PM CDST for west-central and north-central Louisiana.
(Citations needed to state source of news material featured at beginning of video).
It is uncertain as to whether or not the citizens of Jena, LA knew just how close the town came to being another Tusculusa or, God forbid, Joplin. “They (the citizens) knew it was big and dangerously close, although they couldn’t see it. I was amazed how prepared the townspeople were, especially in a city without sirens.”
Four tornados struck La Salle Parish on April 2, between 3 PM and 5:30, three of which came within 2-5 miles from striking the heart of Jena. “This is as lucky or blessed as one could ever hope to be in this situation” according to one spotter.
A known chaser passed through town just in time to greet the boiling, black mesocyclone that produced the third tornado, which was a quarter-mile-wide, and about 3 miles WNW of Jena around 5:17 PM). He stated, “Jena was obviously spared that day, as the long track tornados lifted right before hitting the town, and some touched down again and moved eastward, each missing the town proper.”
The video contains a new but competent group of spotters who are new to the area and come from the Tornado Alley region of the Texas Panhandle near Amarillo. Bear in mind, their cameras were shaky, as filming took backseat priority to their work as spotters (driving and exchanging realtime info). They synchronize well between realtime radar and visual confirmation.
The video contains the super-cells that were responsible for producing four separate EF-2 tornados each of which came dangerously close to Jena in La Salle Parish. The third Tornado formed about 4 miles north of Midway.
This EF-2 Tornado was a quarter of a mile wide and moved less than a mile during its 3-5 minute lifecycle. We were fortunate enough to catch only fair images of the actual Tornado. The high precipitation that day made most of the tornados rain-wrapped.
The HP nature of the storms added to spotter difficulty, as the foliage is a hindrance in itself. A vague and large funnel can be next to impossible to view and confirm, and this one is no exception. We happened to catch a peep of the large funnel plowing through distant woods before it, too, took refuge behind the rain curtain surrounding a major portion of the updraft.
Austin, located on the Chicagos west side, began as an upscale suburb built from railway riches. Created in 1865 by businessman and real estate investor Henry W. Austin, the neighborhood has one of the largest populations in Chicago. It was annexed to the city in 1899 much to the citizens dismay and has since experienced great community and economic transformations. From its wide roads, picturesque community parks and gorgeous architecture, Austin boasts some of Chicagos greatest historical locations.
One of these buildings is the J.J. Walser Jr. House, located at 42 N. Central Ave. The building, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright was built in 1903, just four years after the neighborhood was annexed to the city. It is known to be one of his most significant buildings in the Chicagoland area. Although it is built on a narrow lot, the home still exhibits his well-known horizontal designs.
Another city landmark in the neighborhood is the Hitchcock House, located at 5704 W. Ohio St. Built in 1871, the neighborhood was still an independent suburb known for the commuter railways. Build for railroad part executive Charles Hitchcock, the home is known for being one of the oldest houses in the community.
The Fraternite Notre Dame is a breakaway Catholic church located in the neighborhood. It is one of four churches in the world in which the Fraternite Notre Dame operates. The church created controversy in 2000 when it opened up its main house for North America in the neighborhoods former Gammon United Methodist Church, which was built by renowned Cleveland architect Sidney Badgley.
Laramie State Bank Building, located at 5200 W. Chicago Avenue, was constructed in 1927 by architects Querin Cook and Frederick Meyer. The art-deco style buildings exterior was covered in coins, beehives, quirrels and other symbols of savings and prosperity. The imagery was sculpted by the artisans of the Northwestn Terra Cotta Company in which Cook and Meyer worked for, and denotes some of Chicagos finest terra cotta work.
Southeast of Santa Fe, New Mexico are the remains of what was once the largest Indian pueblo in the Southwest. Pecos Pueblo dominated a major trading route between the farming Pueblo Indians and Great Plains’ hunters.
