You don't necessarily have to go to church to be in a cult.
Being in a cult would imply that I go to a church, I do not, but you do, don't you.

Being in a cult would imply that I go to a church, I do not, but you do, don't you. Biblical commentaries are your cult and your indoctrination. So here you are telling me, not to lean on mans understanding, but to lean on mans understanding? That is purely ridiculous. The Talmud is what the rabbinical priests cling to and the jews still hold there law above the TORAH even today. YAHUSHUA upheld TORAH and refuted the Talmud. Actually look at what the jews uphold, it is not the TORAH even today. They placed their Talmud above YAHUWAHs instruction which is TORAH. Is a bible commentary not "human understanding" as you put it? Of course it is. YAHUSHUA was correct when he told them they did not know YAHUWAH, it's much like how the catholic church does not know YAHUWAH, they place their laws above the BIBLE, don't they? The pharisees were doing the same thing. It's called the talmud. Please research it.
You have a pessimistic view that I don't share.
You are a sheep, waiting for your Sheppard to tell you what to do, you have sworn an oath to inaction and nonthought, if no Shepard comes, the world will remain as it is, and the Christians will remain as they are, in a happy place in their heads knowing they are going to heaven, because they did such a good job.
I'm not afraid to say this person's name, Jesus.
It's a strange being that speaks Greek and doesn't have Jewish identity as the Bible is clear about.
It misleads those who dwell on the earth, because of the signs that it was permitted to perform in the sight of the wild beast, while it tells those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the wild beast that had the sword-stroke and yet revived. 15 And it was permitted to give breath to the image of the wild beast, so that the image of the wild beast should both speak and cause to be killed all those who refuse to worship the image of the wild beast.
And the wild beast that was but is not, it is also an eighth king, but it springs from the seven, and it goes off into destruction.
12 “The ten horns that you saw mean ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but they do receive authority as kings for one hour with the wild beast. 13 These have one thought, so they give their power and authority to the wild beast.
According to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) – as the targets are known – are among the seven “strategic opportunities” to be realized not over decades but within the next twelve months. [Note the map on page 57 of the report (PDF), which divides the world into 10 "Regional Groupings" as compared to the seven continents of the world.]
I should note here that the English word, hour, comes from the Greek, more directly from the Old French, that got it from Latin, which got it from the Greek, that got it from the ancient Indo-European.
The Septuagint often translates the word, עֵת , in the Hebrew, meaning season, with the Greek word, ὥρα , which is here in this verse translated into the English as, hour.
