Default Cult?

I was talking to her family member, who is concerned about it being a cult. She said "not one place in the Bible does God or Jesus ever have ANYTHING to do with science!", which is funny, because my thoughts were, "How dare they call this science!"

From the little bit that I've read, it just looked like cheese-ball affirmations and stuff, but I haven't looked that deeply, yet.
Well here is why her family member thinks it's a cult. If you read the wiki entry on it, it sounds really new age-y despite the fact that the founding book was written in 1926 or something.

The group will probably take her money for books and classes and church support but I can't find any articles or blog posts saying it's evil.
