While all three relate to one another, a world religion is a religion that is distinct from all the others. A cult is a variant that has shifted away from the orthodoxy of a particular world religion. Philosophical systems can be classified as religions. For example, some listeners might think of Platonic Dualism, the Stoics or the Epicureans.
False Religions EXPOSED!
Such systems are sometimes incorporated into particular world religions. This latter category includes Hinduism, Islam, Buddhism and other religions. As Jim correctly noted, this takes us back to Genesis and the question the serpent asked Eve in the garden. He forced him to walk and kept smashing him across the head and kicking him for the entire 30 or so metres to the main building. Jubilant was sobbing and trying to protect himself as he stumbled up the road. Even though the church taught that it was godly for disobedient children to be beaten, this was so wrong. I was only 11 years old but as I stood there, helpless and watching, my hands to my throat, I knew with every fibre of my being that this was wrong.
We were numb from the shock of what had happened. All of us left the soccer field and returned to the classroom. That evening I poured it all out to Mum. Both of us waited to see what punishment the men would give Nathaniel. Nothing happened and he continued teaching us. I was disgusted. The leaders called it godly, but I thought it was abuse. Some leaders not only encouraged violent beatings but scolded parents who were lenient.
This was a church that preached non-violence and was anti-war, yet it saw fit to punish their young for minor errors. Some men took this literally, using weapons like polystyrene pipe to beat their sons. Certain other members rebelled against the impositions and refused to treat their children badly, and I witnessed loving relationships between many parents and their children. A wife would, in strict confidence, show me her young children, who had horrific marks on their legs, bottoms and backs where her husband had beaten them.
Rage boiled in my chest when I saw those poor children suffering. I vowed to unleash the fury of hell if any husband of mine ever laid a finger on a child of ours in malice. One quiet morning I was in the high school with my head down studying, as were my 30 other classmates. I was having trouble with a difficult maths problem and bit my lip in deep concentration. Suddenly a loud noise jolted me out of focus.
We looked up from our books, all of us startled. It was Shepherd Fervent bursting into the room. Fervent was dragging his son Willing by the collar of his shirt and he yanked him to stand before the class. I cringed. Fervent puffed out his chest and threw back his shoulders. His balding head caught the light from the window and he smoothed down the sides of his oily hair.
His other hand held a limp leather strap. Fervent was going to make an example of Willing? Willing stared at the ground and mumbled an apology for being disobedient to his father. I felt a sliver of hope. Maybe the apology was enough to clear him? In that moment I wanted nothing more than to kill Fervent. To my eyes he was scum of the earth.
Willing looked shocked, but obeyed his father. Fervent took a wide stance and drew the strap back over his head. He moaned and whimpered with pain. With all his strength he whipped the poor boy again, and again, and again. Bile rose in my throat and I turned away from the appalling scene. Fervent was a pig and no man of God.

My knuckles turned white and I gripped the desk in fury. How dare that man — a leader — treat a child this way? I shut my eyes to block out the horror and covered my ears.
