'Growing Pains' star Kirk Cameron has hit out at Tom Cruises's Scientology religion - warning people not to get caught up in the faith as it has similar qualities to a "cult".
The former teen idol turned to Christianity after his time on the hit US TV series, complaining about various "immoral" aspects of the 1980s show's plotline.
The 37-year-old even went on to set up his own US ministry, 'The Way Of The Master', with his wife Chelsea Noble, the mother of his six God-fearing children.
Now Cameron, who has written his autobiography 'Still Growing' about his life, has lashed out at the Church of Scientology and its founder L Ron Hubbard, branding the faith "kooky" - and advising people to find God through the Bible.
He tells America's OK! Magazine: "I think Scientology is kooky. I think L Ron Hubbard had some imaginative ideas, but the bottom line is that it's false, not real, and my advice to people is don't get mixed up in cults and false religions but seek out the true and living God and try to honour him
with all your heart. You can do that by reading the Bible."
