The root cause of all cults in the world. Their cult leader interpreted the bible privately or for their own group's benefit only. It's the very basic of bible interpretation, your interpretation of the bible must be subjected under major interpretation of other bible scholars. How to check? To be safe go with the greek and hebrew language, read commentaries on how they interpret that bible verse, and go with the major interpretation. Don't go over it or less than it.

Revelation 22:18-19 (Amplified Bible)

I [personally solemnly] warn everyone who listens to the statements of the prophecy [the predictions and the consolations and admonitions pertaining to them] in this book: If anyone shall add anything to them, God will add and lay upon him the plagues (the afflictions and the calamities) that are recorded and described in this book.

And if anyone cancels or takes away from the statements of the book of this prophecy [these predictions relating to Christ’s kingdom and its speedy triumph, together with the consolations and admonitions or warnings pertaining to them], God will cancel and take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the city of holiness (purity and hallowedness), which are described and promised in this book.
