The sociological perspective of what constitutes a "cult" is an ever-changing merry-go-round and is basically an excercise in futility because sociology has nothing whatever to being saved in the first place.
And the very few who know 2x2ism from a theological perspective are, of course, castigated by many sociologists who know little to nothing about Biblical salvation essentials such as the deity of Jesus Christ. And that study of who Jesus is is essential to salvation, not just logically, but Jesus Himself said that if one does not believe that He is "I AM" he/she "will die in his/her sins." Logically then, on just the sociological perspective there have been numberous men who claimed to be "Jesus Christ" just as the Bible said there would be. And if one of those men is who you believe is the Biblical Jesus Christ, you have "another Jesus," not the Jesus Christ of the Bible. and all the other Jesuses are not Saviors, not even 2x2 workers who view themselves as copies of Jesus Christ (actually in place of Jesus Christ).
Theological perspective in assessing 2x2ism is not a walk in the dark or unimportant. If you do not start with personal knowledge of who the real Jesus is, there is no way you can assess 2x2ism as "a heretical cult."
And few, even Christian scholars with sociological degrees by the ton, have studied Biblical theology.
