The above video reveals invalidity of the BITE Model which is used to determine whether an group is a cult or not. This is the third part of a series of videos regarding Steven Hassan. I recommend you also watch the previous two videos:
- World Mission Society Church of God – Examining Hassan – The True WMSCOG
- World Mission Society Church of God – Examining Hassan Pt. 2 – The True WMSCOG
A former member, who appears in the video of Steven Hassan, said he came to realize that the World Mission Society Church of God is a cult based on the BITE Model. What is the BITE Model? Is it valid for the purpose of filtering out cults? As you see, Steven Hassan does not know the Bible. Actually, he is not an expert in religion, but a mental health counselor. Does it make sense that a man who does not know the Bible tries to judge Christian churches using a man-made tool?
The problem is that the BITE Model, which is used to brand the WMSCOG as a destructive cult, is not based on the Bible and it’s so broad that many Christians churches also can be classified as a cult according to this model. You can check such problems in the video above.
As I stressed in my previous posts, the only standard should be the Bible when deciding whether a church is false or not. The church which follows the teachings of the Bible is the true church. The World Mission Society Church of God observes the Passover and the Sabbath day according to the teachings of Jesus.
Steven Hassan makes use of the concept of “the freedom of mind” to market his books. But, the true freedom of mind is possible only through the truth. In this age, the Holy Spirit and the Bride give us the water of life to free us from the slavery of death.
Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. (John 8:32)
But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. (John 16:13)
The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” … let him take the free gift of the water of life. (Rev 22:17)
Please meet the Spirit of truth, who will guide you into the spring of the water of life, God the Mother.
