Summary: From a dictionary definition Christianity classifies as a cult, this stems from the Anti-Christ.

Some people have said that I am trying to start a cult; in fact it is far from that. I am trying to stop one of the largest in the world. You see currently Christianity is as this dictionary definition states, a cult.

a. A religion or religious sect generally considered to be extremist or false, with its followers often living in an unconventional manner under the guidance of an authoritarian, charismatic leader.
b. The followers of such a religion or sect.
2. A system or community of religious worship and ritual.
3. The formal means of expressing religious reverence; religious ceremony and ritual.
4. A usually nonscientific method or regimen claimed by its originator to have exclusive or exceptional power in curing a particular disease.
a. Obsessive, especially faddish, devotion to or veneration for a person, principle, or thing.
b. The object of such devotion.
6. An exclusive group of persons sharing an esoteric, usually artistic or intellectual interest.

Now before everyone thinks I am attacking Christ I am not, I am trying to fix what the Pharisees made, i.e. John and Paul. You see Christ said it right, his principles are universal; what it is discussed in the Pharisees books are not. People have been made to believe, they are following the testimony of Christ; when in fact this is not true. Christ was open and would rather take the ministry of God, out into the streets. The editing done by the Pharisees took it back into the buildings and the worship of God, back into the church and under religious control. People may ask, "Isn't a cult something hidden?" well a lot of Bible meetings still are, and for centuries the reading of the Bible was only allowed by the leaders of the church. It has only been in the last couple of centuries that the reading of the Bible has been introduced to the public, my granddad is Pollish and even within his time, people were not allowed to read the Bible; only the priests were. The story of William Tindale and his efforts to have the Bible translated into English, for the people to read. Just goes to show, that it was originally established with what we would now call a cult. Those who said anything different for centuries have been killed.
Now if you look at the history books, you will see what I mean; that indeed it was established as a modern day cult would be.
A lot of people I have met will only show love to other Christians; disregarding Christ's teachings of being a light to all. If you are not a Christian, many will not accept you as a member of the family of God, unless you follow what the Pharisees say.
From this definition of a charismatic leader, yes Christ was the leader who was against the church system, so the Pharisees used him to convert people back to their way of thinking; of a church system. Not as Christ said and to have faith in God, yet they have taught to have faith in Christ. This is why within Revelations it is called "the mother of all harlots", as they have taught many people to worship something other then God.
This article is not to be against followers of Christ, yet for everyone to take a look at the opposing scriptures i.e. John, Paul and Peter, and see the difference between what makes a follower of Christ and a worker of iniquity. A large part of this is the need to convert people, where as in most religions they do good simply to help people. Christianity is always trying to convert people; this again is what a cult does. There is a clear line between showing people the teachings of Christ on how to worship God, and telling people that they should worship Christ. Almost all of this stems from the books of John, Paul and Peter and not Christ him self. The following of communion as in the drinking of wine (symbolic of a man's blood) is a religious ritual, which again as in another article was not from Christ. In fact Revelations says those who follow this are condemned.
I think a large reason people can't see this is what happens within a cult; people are only shown what the leaders wish them to see. This cult has been running so long and is so wide spread everyone believes it as the right one. The same goes for a cult, people believe that the cult is right, because that is what they are taught to believe. I hope this all makes sense to you, that it is not about Judaism and Christ, yet the sect of the Pharisees re-writing things. Now the bit I like about all of this is within the Bible its self this is all foretold, all it takes is people to open their eyes to see.
