Cultic attraction is often also due to a reaction to biblical Christianity or to the inadequate practice of biblical Christianity. It has often been stated that “cults live off the unpaid debts of the church.” Where ineffective discipleship takes place, the newly converted may easily be victimized by cultic movements. Likewise, incomplete or superficial evangelism will produce inauthentic disciples who may well become the next generation of new religion followers. Church controversies and squabbles, particularly over secondary or tertiary elements of church life, tend to produce discontent and disillusionment among Christians.
