5 Signs You Are In A Cult Being Called A Church
如何辨别你所信的是不是假“基督教”?

6122910.jpg

Here are five signs that you are in a cult and not the true church of Jesus Christ.
如有下面五个方面的情况,则可判定你所在的不是真正的耶稣基督教,而是邪教!

Deviant Behavior and Teachings
一、异常行为与教义

The definition of a cult and a true church of Jesus Christ are nearly opposites of one another. A cult can have deviant behavior and doctrinal practices that are radically different from the mainstream church. Their beliefs and practices are problematic when contrasted and compared with the first century church and many churches today. The word “cult” comes from the Latin word “cultus” which means “inhabited, cultivated,” or “worshiped” and stems from the word “culture” itself. A cult holds to unorthodox and esoteric beliefs and typically those in a cult have a devotion to a person or a set of new ideas that are much different from following the local church leadership or their teachings. They usually claim themselves as the one true church but they are often isolationists and very controlling of members. Some who have come out of cults have said that they were brainwashed, threatened, and even held against their will when trying to leave. Cults are all around us and here are five signs you might be in a cult or know someone who is in one in order that you might steer clear of them or warn those who are in one.
邪教与正统耶稣基督教的定义恰好相反。邪教的行为与教义同主流教会差别很大。拿邪教的信仰与做法与一世纪时的教会(或当今的许多教会)一比较,就会被发现它存有很多问题。“邪教”这个词来源于拉丁语“共同的朝拜、礼拜”(cultus)一词,其意思有“有人居住的”、“耕种的”、“被崇拜的”。“文化“(culture)这个词也是由“cultus”演变过来的。邪教一般有非正统或令人费解的信仰,典型的是崇拜某个人,或者信奉一些新奇的思想,与当地知名教会、教义大相径庭。邪教通常声称自己是正宗教会,但是他们往往是孤立主义者或严格控制教会成员,甚至抵制成员离开教会。邪教就在我们身边,有五大标准可判明你在的教会或你认识的人所在的教会是不是邪教,这样你就可以从中脱离出来,或警告那些在邪教中的人。

New Teachings
二、新教义

I can’t even count the number of people from cults who have stated that they received new revelation from God or that God has shown them a new doctrine, even though this is contrary to what the Bible teaches that we are “to contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints” (Jude 1:3) not for the faith that is still being delivered. One man told me that “God spoke to me and wanted me to tell you that you’re not a pastor but a prophet” to which I should have said “God spoke to me too…through His written Word to stay away from you.” If God wanted to speak to me, why would He use a 3rd party to do it? God does still speak to us today but it’s not through new revelations or new truths that people say that they have received from God but the truth that’s already been given through Jesus Christ and the Word of God. The Book of Jude is about apostasy and he wrote that “you must remember, beloved, the predictions of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ” that “In the last time there will be scoffers, following their own ungodly passions” (Jude 1:17-18) and that day has come.
声称自己受主新的神启,或主给了他们新的教义的邪教分子多得数不过来。即使这是与《圣经》教导我们的“要为从前一次交付圣徒的真道竭力地争辩”经文背道而驰(新约-犹大书 1:3)。之前有人告诉我说,“主给我说,他想让我告诉你,你不是一个牧师,而是一个先知”。对此,我应该说:“主也给我说了,他书面告诉我让我远离你。”如果主想告诉我,为什么还通过第三方告诉我?主今天仍在告诫我们,但他不是通过新的方式或者一些人所说的主给的新真理,而是通过耶稣基督和神的语言(圣经)。《犹大书》就是讲叛教变节的。经中所说的“亲爱的兄弟啊,你们要纪念我们主耶稣基督之使徒从前所说的话”,那就是“末世必有好讥诮的人随从自己不虔诚的私欲而行”(《犹大书》1:17-18)。这话今天应验了。

False Teachings
三、假教义

There are serious problems with cults today because they are polluting the faith once delivered and delivering their own manmade doctrines but these are really doctrines of the Devil and what they teach is not the way of salvation but the way of man. The Apostle Paul warned the church at Corinth by telling them that “if someone comes and proclaims another Jesus than the one we proclaimed, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or if you accept a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it readily enough” (2nd Cor 11:4) and to the Galatians, “I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— not that there is another one, but there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed” (Gal 1:6-8).
当前,邪教带来了非常严肃的问题。他们玷污了曾经的信仰,散布他们人造的教义,其实上已成为魔鬼教义。他们教的不是个人救赎的方式,而是人为控制的方法。圣徒保罗在科林斯教堂告诫他们说“如果有人来给你们宣讲另一个耶稣,不是我们所宣讲过的;或者你们领受另一神,不是你们所领受过的;或者另一福音,不是你们所接受过的,你们竟然都容忍了,真好啊!” (《哥林多后书11:4》); “我希奇你们这么快离开那借着基督之恩召你们的,去从别的福音。那并不是福音,不过有些人搅扰你们,要把基督的福音更改了 。但无论是我们,还是天上来的使者,若传福音给你们,与我们所传给你们的不同 ,他就应当被咒诅 (《加拉太书 1:6-8》。

Control
四、控制

As I wrote earlier, cults often control their members and keep them prisoners by use of threats, coercion, or by force (in some cases). Cults or the cult leader demands absolute, total control of everything and tells any members who disagree with them that they are destined to hell if they don’t follow what the leader says. This control extends to every single member of the cult and sometimes this domination comes through fear, threatening the loss of salvation if you leave the group, and even physical threats. There indoctrination is often a type of brainwashing, and often, every single aspect of the cult member’s lives are monitored and often called into question. There is a loss of privacy, free thought or expression of beliefs, and some would even describe it as living in a communal or compound. Few are let in and few escape. Make no mistake about it; Satan has his own churches.
之前我写过的文章提到,邪教往往通过威胁、强迫或暴力的手段控制他们的成员。邪教或邪教领导者要求绝对的、完全的控制,告诉那些与他们意见不合的成员,如果不按主教说的那样做,终将会去地狱。控制延伸到每一位邪教成员身上;有时控制来自离开教会就会得不到救赎的恐惧,甚至是身体威胁。教化是洗脑常用的一种方式。邪教成员的生活还经常遭受监控。那里没有隐私、自己的思想和信仰,甚至可以描述为就像生活在一个封闭社团里或钢筋混凝土里面。很少有人进来,也很少有人可以逃出。完全可以肯定:撒旦有了自己的教会。

Imprisoned
五、监禁

Many of the cults that I have studied have many things in common. One of those is that they seek to isolate the cult members from the rest of the world and particularly from other churches. They also want to make them dependent upon the cult or the cult’s leader for everything they need. They can use guilt, threats, intimidation, and use psychological, emotional, and intellectual to get across their despicable agenda. Some cult members are asked to do things that are contrary to the law and so one sign of being in a cult is that they are sometimes asked to do things that violate their own consciences and are contrary to biblical teachings that we must live in obedience to the laws of man (Rom 13:1-5).
我研究过的许多邪教,它们都有共同的特征。其中之一就是他们想方设法将邪教成员与外面的世界或特别是与其它的教会隔离开来。他们还想让教会成员依附于教会或者将所有事依托于教主。他们通过定罪、威胁、恐吓,运用心理、情绪等手段来达到他们不可告人的目的。一些邪教成员被要求去做违法的事情;一个身陷邪教的标志之一就是经常在教主的指使下,做违反自己良知和圣经教义的事情。

Conclusion
结论

If you know of anyone that’s in a cult, you must warn them to flee because there is no salvation in a false gospel that doesn’t fully depend upon the free gift of God for salvation (Eph 2:8). Some cults teach that we are to observe the holy days and to keep the Sabbath which the Old Testament always directs to “the children of Israel” or “To you O Israel.” These teachings can include observance of Old Testament laws like clean and unclean foods, circumcision, keeping certain holy days of the Jews or the seventh-day Sabbath but these are actually legalists much like the Pharisees who saw the Old Testament law keeping as the only way to be saved even though the Bible teaches just the opposite (Eph 2:9).
如果认识的人在邪教中,你必须警告他们尽快离开,因为那儿没有救赎,只有冒牌的福音。他们的福音不是来自神的恩赐或救赎(以弗所书 2:8-9)。
