We have treated folks like the Seventh Day Adventists as if they were a
separate religion. IMHO although I do think some of their unique
doctrines are weak heresy, they are still within the Christian stream
and we have done them wrong. However when it comes to some of the
health and wealth gospelers it appears to me that some of them get
dangerously close to strong heresy especially some who hold that all
sickness is the result of sin in the life of the sick person...
