Beware of Cults and Cult-Like People

"Cults and Cult-Like People 
have this one thing in common:

An arrogance 
that they have the right ways in life 
and that they are better than you."

Philippians 2:1-11 
"Therefore if there is any encouragement in Christ, 
if there is any consolation of love, 
if there is any fellowship of the Spirit, 
if any affection and compassion,
make my joy complete by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, 
intent on one purpose.

Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, 
but with humility of mind regard one another 
as more important than yourselves;
do not merely look out 
for your own personal interests, 
but also for the interests of others.

Have this attitude in yourselves 
which was also in Christ Jesus, who, 
although He existed in the form of God, 
did not regard equality with God 
a thing to be grasped,
but emptied Himself, 
taking the form of a bond-servant, 
and being made in the likeness of men.

Being found in appearance as a man, 
He humbled Himself by becoming obedient 
to the point of death, even death on a cross.

For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, 
and bestowed on Him the name 
which is above every name,
so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, 
of those who are in heaven and on earth 
and under the earth, and that every tongue 
will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, 
to the glory of God the Father."
