I think that some of these syncrestic Christian cults have gone back to the Gnostic heresy that Jesus was just a man until he was at some point imbued with a “christ consciousness”, attained that through spiritual living, was not divine before that point but only after, and that that divine nature can be attained by anyone.

Multiple heresies abound in that mismosh. But to your point, there is enough truth buried in there to make the mismosh sound palatable to individuals who don’t understand the theological history of Christianity.
