Oh and going back to the main topic, The Key factors that make it a cult :
1.) An overwhelming focus on spreading the message and aquiring money.
If the master is immortal what is the big hurry already ?
Oh sorry I forgot the apocalypse is coming soon, so we don't have time, how convenient. The apocalypse has been coming for more than 10,000 years, I think the master can afford a couple of decades to build his own war chest than scrounge off other peoples wages. He'd only have to build a fortune 500 company in 20-30 years, mere mortals have done it in less, and then he'd have all the money he needs to spread the word. Doesn't divine consciousness and insight extend into business management ? I guess not since most gnostics especially Mr. Pritchard have been shown to be cluess incompent losers.
2.) Expecting people to work for free / very little and give donations, assets etc. while the master benefits and gives nothing.
Oh sorry I forget you write all the books and oversee everything, but isn't that the universal information that can't be bought or sold ? Aren't your books just a rehash of previous masters anyway ?
3.) Cutting people off from other information, making it so they are isolated, everyone else is an outsider and those within the group are in on the big secret so to speak. All other information is rubbish or corrupted, only the masters group has the ture knowledge.
So much for embracing life the universe and everything.
4.) Being preoccupied with public image and using it to leverage peoples obidience inside the organisation, when the external reality is no one gives a damn about your crumby organisation and what clothes, hair cuts, language etc. people use.
there are many others, you can find them on this website, but its clear that Master Belzebubs Gnostic Movement falls into all of these.
You can fool some people sometimes, but you can't fool all the people all the time.
Those that can do.... those that can't teach....
