Question: Are You A Part Of The Children Of God Cult?
Donald Bohanon: Absolutely not.That question’s actually so ridiculous it’s a bit humorous. I’ve heard of the group and based on what I’ve heard they don’t teach the doctrines and word of God.
And from my understanding basically twist scripture and take verses out of context as a means to justify engaging in all kinds of perverse and twisted unbiblical sexual behavior.If that is in fact true.
I only know of what I’ve heard but can’t be sure those claims are accurate.But I wouldn’t be surprised because from my understanding they don’t follow the doctrines and word of God and Christ.
And if they don’t follow the commandments and word as a whole they wont have the Holy Spirit, which without it no man can live up to God’s and the Bibles requirements for repentance.So that kind of, and level of sin and disobedience, is certainly possible.
Not only in this case but obviously even more so in the secular world. But without God’s spirit or adherence to his word and commandments,it’s a secular organization anyway.No matter the title or the fact they claim to be Christian.Because again, God only gives his spirit to those who obey him.
King James Version (KJV)
32 And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him.
King James Version (KJV)
15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
And in cases like that they normally create their own ways of worship which are contrary to and fly in the face of biblical instruction. Not much different than other groups who engage in perverse sexual behavior, but at the same time claim to follow and represent God and Christ.Like homosexuals,lesbians,bisexuals,pedophiles,transgenders.Many who claim to be Christian but who live completely contrary to how the Bible instructs them to live.
And who twist and distort scripture as way to justify perverse sexual behavior or unbiblical behavior in general.If what I’ve heard is true, this group is no different than homosexual groups and others who claim to follow and obey God and Christ but yet live completely contrary to the Bible.In cases like this all of them can be considered cults.
The emergence of these kinds of groups who live completely contrary to God’s word evident by their behavior….as a result of false teaching,motivated by perverted lust(which is condemned by scripture) is normally the result.
One definition of a cult (contrary to the dictionaries definition) is any group which claims to follow God and Christ but live absolutely contrary to the commandments and word of God as a whole.
And who in many cases twist the word of God and take verses out of context to justify behavior the Bible strongly condemns.Or an entity which requires absolute allegiance to a group,figure or a person, and his teachings and doctrines.Those teachings in many cases being separate or different from what God and the Bible teaches or instructs.
