    A family cult is a high demand family group which operates by incorporating authoritarian control, thought reform, and other cult means with spiritual abuse and emotional abuse. . . . physical, sexual, and intellectual abuse . . . need not always be present to qualify as such.​

    Has anyone had experience with such in your church or otherwise?

    We've had to deal with two of them directly in our church. Of course, we've also had to provide ministry to some folks who have come out of them and are seeking personal restoration.

    While in college, a student leader and his girl friend both got sucked into the way, and turned away from family and friends!
