I know. I know…it’s a click bait headline.
But there’s a serious question here:
Are you a member of a sect? I can remember learning the difference between a sect and a cult. A sect is a separated group of Christian believers. A cult has evolved from a sect into a separate religion. There are certain characteristics that are common to both sects and cults and when these behaviors are unchecked a sect can become, if not a cult exactly, certainly a place where cult-like experiences and pressures take place.
