As a Bible-believing Christian, I encourage folks to be noble like the Bereans and search the Scriptures to see whether these things are so, and to remember the early Sabbath-keeping Church of God were falsely accused of being "cult members" by those proud and stubborn religious people who preferred idolatrous traditions over the plain truth of the Bible. God is witness.
14 But this I confess to you, that according to the Way which they [traditionalists] call a cult, so I worship the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the Law and in the Prophets.
22 But we desire to hear from you what you think; for concerning this sect, we know that it is spoken against everywhere [not highly praised and widely acclaimed].
