Overtly Cults are so called by the mainstream because they don't have the numbers to make them 'acceptable' by the mainstream. Could it be however, that the mainstream could also be classified as a Cult but because the stigma associated with the word 'Cult' it is not seen as such.Do you think lack of knowledge of scripture can play ? Of course if you’re born into it then that would not be the case. I personally was almost lead into one by lack of knowledge. It’s the demonic that really is involved in the leadership of cults.

If you were to ask a participant in what the mainstream deems a Cult whether they see themselves as belonging to a Cult, they would no doubt answer in the negative no differently than those who consider themselves part of the Mainstream.
