When cults seek to have control over the thoughts of their members - for example failing to let them have the freedom to develop or even lose - their understanding of the faith of the organisation in question.
When that organisation ensures that only the official line (which usually changes with every decade) is allowed to be studied.
When an organisation removes those who do not accept every stricture of its doctrine or discipline, and forces them out, not only of the fellowship, but out of family and household as well, banning all members - even family members - from contact, that is a cult and should be avoided at all costs and exposed as the pervasive nastiness it is.
