I'll hafta check my sources to make sure I'm not misrembering, but there were strong bells ringing as I read your post about his beliefs.
Agreed, his beliefs about Jesus puts him well outside the orbit of Scriptural orthodoxy. And I note he uses the same argument that cultists use to explain the complete absence of their newly 'discovered' revelations/teachings from the historical record.
He definitely shares some very strong affinities with cultists. The only difference appears to be a question of organisation and numbers.
