Home - questionoftheweek Is Catholicism a cult because it operates on a works based Gospel? There are many Catholic believers.Catholicism is often looked at as an Apostate Religion because it often moves from grace of God to church traditions which are heavily related to works and other beliefs.The worship of Mary, the mother of Jesus, is idolatry. Many see her as sinless, though this runs counter to the message in Romans 3:23.
