List of False Teachings, False Religions, and Cults

by Michael Houke

 

Here is a list of what this group considers false or cultic organizations or religious entities.

It is imperative that no one take this list for granted; rather, look at the works of each teacher individually and compare their teaching against Scripture, for this is God's will in Christ Jesus, that we practice discernment and not rely on any one man's word. If not, we make the same error as those who fall prey to false teaching in the first place, and this leads to ungodly division. This is not to imply that this list is incorrect, however, each one of us should practice discernment so we can be noble like the Bereans in Scripture, whom the Lord noted in his Word as noble for not trusting in what Paul said, but instead compared everything to God's Word.

This list is not all inclusive, it is a work in progress through years of research. Anyone wishing information about any of the below listed organizations just ask and it will be forwarded to the group for review. Some of the entities listed are false and some are heretic.
