What are some features or characteristics of New Religious Movements?

… new to North Americans anyway. New Religious Movements like Sufis, Sunnis, Moonies, Non-denominational Christians, Zen Buddhism, Taoism, Islam, any others… What are some of their features or characteristics that make them attractive as an alternative to traditional religions like Presbyterian, Catholic, Lutheran, etc.? Thanks.


  1. They all share one thing: anything but God. This is attractive to people who don’t like the idea of God. Before you object, remember that Islam worships a rock.

  2. Mostly they take away the guilt aspect of the traditional western churches. Sometimes they add free love aspects too. Some add yoga which makes you feel good. Some add reincarnation which says you will never die.
