Church of Wells- Christian or Cult? What do you think?

17 May 2018


We know that Islam based on a moon god, and is a cult but let's give some thought to Christian Cults.

Following are three links regarding the Church of Wells. Take a look at them and see what you think. The first, that came to my attention, was a May 3, 2018 article in the Christian Post. Dr Phil interviewed a street preacher who spent several days with members of the Church of Wells. Read it and see what you think.

You may wonder what wikipedia has to say about the group, which, though not Gospel, might shed some light on the subject. Wikipedia is written by individuals who have some kind of interest, and there are some sort of sources to back up the entry.

Finally, take a look at the group's own website, clicking here. It is a professional looking set of web pages. It would take some time and consideration to look at it thoroughly.

Part of what is troubling about the group is their emphasis on Luke 14:25-27: (KJV)

"25 And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, and said unto them,
26 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.
27 And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple."

That sounds pretty harsh, coming from the Lord, not that he is never stern- such as when he was in the courtyard of the Temple The Luke 14 verses are one of the parts of the Bible that causes consternation and question to Bible students,  for you wouldn't think that a preacher who encompasses part of the old words of honoring parents, and the new message of Love One Another Even As I have Loved You, would be wrenching families apart. Here is one response to that question. Or  you might google some more thoughts on it by clicking here, and nosing around a bit.

So bottom line question, is this an example of a Christian Cult?

Church Reaches Out to Victims of Doomsday Cult


Christians Worry Harold Camping's Predictions May End in Suicide

MILPITAS, Calif., May 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Calvary Bible Church of Milpitas, California is reaching out to provide help to followers of Harold Camping's "Family Radio," which they believe to be a doomsday cult, and asks them not to do anything rash on Sunday, May 22nd. The 89-year-old Camping owns the Oakland, California-based Family Radio Network, heard on more than 150 stations around the world. Camping uses it to promote his strange understanding of the Bible that includes mathematical predictions of Jesus Christ's return on Saturday, May 21st and the end of the universe on October 21st of this year.  

Calvary Bible Church is very concerned about the wellbeing of Camping's followers, who sincerely believe his predictions. Camping contradicts the Bible, which says that no one knows the date of Christ's return. Jesus said that even He did not know it, but Camping claims to have figured it out.

Camping's followers believe so strongly that they will be "raptured" (ascending to Jesus in heaven) on May 21st, that some of them may have emptied bank accounts, cashed out retirement funds, and sold possessions in order to donate money to help Camping spread his message.  

Calvary Bible Church is concerned that Camping's devotees may become depressed and do something rash, when May 21st passes and they realize they have been misled. They are especially concerned that those who have given away a substantial portion of their savings might consider suicide when they realize that Jesus has not returned, as Camping promised, and they are financially ruined.

The church wants to reach out to Camping's followers with a message of hope. "Do not despair," said Pastor Jacob Denys. "You are not alone. We offer you help and Biblical counsel."

The church plans to have their doors open to Camping's followers in need of counsel. Those interested may call or visit the church to find help. Camping's followers are invited to attend their Sunday Morning Service on May 22nd at 10:00 a.m. - the day after Camping's promised second coming of Christ.

"We realize our offer of assistance may not be well-received right now," said Pastor Denys, "but we hope on May 22nd they will see it is an offer made in Christian love. We know that you will be hurting when you realize that you have been deceived, and we will be here for you."

Calvary Bible Church of Milpitas is a non-denominational, verse-by-verse, Bible teaching church that worships Jesus Christ for who He is and what He has done for them. They are dedicated to serving, obeying and loving Him.
