Your religion is nothing more than an overgrown cult with political power

Every major religion started out as a cult, and during its early years would have gone through conflict with established traditional spirituality and superstition. The people of the day would have started out by calling every new religion “a false religion/evil cult” until they had no choice…

Over time some cults gained large numbers of followers and became powerful, which of course made them useful to kings, emperors, and all manner of frauds and unelected totalitarian rulers of the day. King James was one of those powerful rulers, who saw the value in adapting the Christian book of mythology – “The Bible” – into one which served his regime’s goals more than the original texts, which had already been translated and interpreted by numerous societies by then.

Your religion is nothing more than a cult that became useful for the rich, who demanded that cult become the official cult of the time and place. All Abrahamic religions are precisely this — cults that became powerful enough to take political power and label other cults “cults”.
