Religious cults are a group of people following one persons private interpretation of the Christian Bible and do not follow the historical orthodox view of the Holy Scripture. In the end, they are counterfeiters of the true historical Christian faith. These would be groups that deny that Jesus Christ is God by eternal nature or deny the historical Christian teaching on the Trinity of God. They would hold Jesus as “a god” or “prophet of God”, a created been, but not equal to God the Father sharing the same eternal nature, while at the same time denying the existence of the Holy Spirit or hold that the Holy Spirit is not equal to God in sharing the same eternal nature. The early Christian church dealt with this issue by adopting the Nicene/Constantinople Creed in 381 A.D. No religious cult would ever agree to this creed proclamation.
