I can't put Jim Jones, Heaven's gate etc in the realm of Christianity Aliska. They were cults and weird ones at that. People like Kenneth Hagin,and Kenneth Copeland are considered mainline Christians, therefore they are the most dangerous as far as false doctrine goes IMHO.
They deny the power of God, saying he has no choice about what goes on here on earth. He has no rights here, and has to rely on man (themselves) to carry out His Plan. They believe that words have power, and you can speak things into being, (wicca) and that they are gods with a small g, among other heretical doctrines. That is just the tip of the iceberg!
The doctrine that tickles the ear, You are god, (same thing the serpent said to Eve in the garden), you control your destiny by your words which have power, and you can become rich by giving or sowing into their ministries. One would think people would notice the only ones who are rich and have their own Jets are the "ministers" of this so called doctrine.

Didn't they hide behind a thin veneer of Christianity? I don't remember much about it. It does seem more strictly cultish though now that you mention it. But there are others on the far right who definitely proclaim their Christ while at the same time spewing their hatred against lots of different things.
I agree with you fully about the other things you said.
