Welcome to the ‘Thought for the Week’ column as we venture into this New Year, 2018. Last week, we read and hear from all media outlets of a leader of a cult movement who made a prophecy to his followers and not fulfilled. The leader of this so-called movement and others similar movements used the name of religion to promise great wealth and prosperity to their followers. The movement is founded on a cargo cult mentality. It is a mindset far from the biblical teachings of Christianity, yet so appealing to many people today.
