Question What are the Top 10 Cults in the United States and/or the World?

I was talking w/ a friend not too long ago about different cults that are in this world and we were having disagreements about some we thought were cults and what may just be religions. But, i guess some religions could be cults like Satanism -- worshiping Satan through killing things which to me is similar to Witchcraft. But, now after discussing this w/ one of my friends, I'm just curious what you may think may be the top 10 cults either in the united states and/or in the world. The biggest one the both of us thought of was the KKK. But, I'd just like to hear from the rest of you what you think some of them are please?

Also, How can we as Christians minister or serve those who are involved in all these different cults?

The KKK is more political than religious.

Cults come and go, but the biggest one I can remember were known as "Moonies"for want of a better term.
Sun Myung Moon - Moonies - Cult - Unification Church

The "biggest" are probably Mormonism and Jehovah's Witness, the KKK is not even close, with only about 10000 members currently, the Nation of Islam is also a huge cult in America with its leader Louis Farrakhan.

Some people consider RC's a cult. So I suppose that would put them on top, depending on your POV

Rossicurians I believe ?

it's a secret society much like the Free Masons (I would put the FM's at the top)

they are much bigger and influential than what we all believe....

It is hard to place names on "cults" because they come and go. Things Change.
Also we would need a common definition of "cult" are we talking splinter group, more of an anthropological definition? or more of a Bob Larson definition which is "any group who does not believe exactly as I do" ? Are you talking about groups with a known track record of being "destructive"? such as the Unification Church or Scientology?
Or something that is really quite benevolent but does not fit in with traditional society, like Paramahansa Yogananda or Ba'Hai ? Thanks

Well, when i was talking w/ one of my friends about cults, we were discussing cults like the KKK or i considered that a cult and others of that nature. I wasn't necessarily referring to roman catholics or anything like that.

Publisher's Clearing House is a shady organization if I've ever seen one-oh wait, no, that's just advertising.
