Real church with mainline roots but megachurch success or full on cult? Love bombing, isolationism, self-centered attitude of exclusivity, talking about the star pastors rather than about Christ, tribalism bordering on Scientology, and taking over other churches/believers, etc. They seem to have aspects of the well known cults with a well oiled business model like the Jehovah Witnesses, Boston Church of Christ (ICOC), or People's Temple (of the past), but are they the next big Christian-ish cult of many before it, or a really, really successful version of a mainline Protestant church? http://religionnews.com/2014/05/20/troubling-trends-americas-calvinist-revival/ Thoughts? I was raised Methodist and went to a Presbyterian church during college and found those to be theologically sound from my point of view, or shared general beliefs and practices of most Catholics, Protestants, and Orthodox churches, so I found it appalling when a local Presbyterian church was taken over by a Neo-Calvinist group and converting from a Christian church to this new group.
