Well...the only things I've ever heard about cults turned out to be really negative with a lot of people getting killed as with the (Jamestown massacre with Jim Jones - that sort of thing). They are some secret organization that nobody really finds out much about, until something tragic happens. I have often thought that these types of organizations weren't all that much about the Bible and religion; that perhaps such groups were organized for different purposes. Anyway, it all seemed fanatical, to me, at best.
Whatever a person's faith, I just feel it is important to have a belief in God (which does not include groups, like the one previously mentioned) - and to understand that there is someone greater than mankind, who is responsible for the existence of us all.
