In this article it is indicated that a religious sect should be distinguished from a religious cult. A religious cult can be defined as a religious group that actively sets out to control both the earthly and eternal lives of its members. A cult specifically tries to control the members' behaviour, thoughts, emotions or feelings, information and environment, language, norms, history, view of God, salvation, interpretation of the Scriptures, doctrines and membership. When the gospel is preached to members of a cult, these facts should be kept in mind.
