The hours in a day, the days in a month, and the days in a year are all based on astronomical movements of the sun from our perspective , earth, and moon.

And for anyone who has an honest desire to understand the definition of a cult…. At that point, you begin to realize that a true working definition for a religion versus a working definition for a cult is not that straightforward.

However, the differences between the 2 become very clear when you understand the hallmarks of a cult and those hallmarks are what clearly define a cult. Religions create their doctrines as a result of scriptural research and interpretation. That is not the case with cults.
