The article is devoted to the philosophical aspects of the discourse on religious security on the territory of the Russian Federation, where religious organizations are recognized as one of the possible threats to modern society. The authors of the article prove that the specificity of threats on the part of religious organizations should be that their motive is to be a doctrine. The article justifies the fact that the commission of unlawful actions by a religious organization is most often justified not by dogma, but by material, secular motives. This leads to the fact that this activity is evaluated in accordance with the degree of harm caused as an extremist one. The novelty of the study is that the authors draw attention to the fact that there are religious associations that are recognized as dangerous, despite the fact that they do not carry out unlawful actions. The degree of danger they represent is determined on the basis of the content of religious texts that are recognized as dangerous if it can be proved that the potential threat contained in them can acquire a real character. The result of the article is the proof that the task of secular religious studies and social philosophy should not be efforts aimed at banning religious organizations that represent not a real threat, but only a potential danger, since the main thing in which these sciences are interested is the development of the theory of social adaptation of religion.
