Cults Cults

These cults will sometimes request that you do volunteer work and that you help recruit your friends, family and work mates. In earlythe band released an EP, which featured two of the songs to Cults Cults on the album; "Go Outside" and Cults Cults Wanted". Cult leaders are desperate to trick Cults Cults into joining. Because if people knew their true practices and beliefs beforehand then they Cults Cults not join. These groups ostensibly make money by selling goods via their sales organization, but in reality they make their money by selling goods and motivational materials to Cults Cults sales organization. Godthe Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. In other words it does not turn people into some sort of remote control robot.

Only information supplied by the cult is true. Cults train their members to instantly destroy any critical information given to them, and to not even entertain the thought that the information could be true. Common sense tells us that a person who does not consider all information may make an unbalanced decision.

Filtering the information available or trying to discredit it not on the basis of how true it is, but rather on the basis of how it supports the party line, is a common control method used throughout history. Often information given in deepest confidence is automatically reported to leadership. Cult leaders will then use this information to convince their members that they have a supernatural link, the trusting member does not suspect the very natural mechanism behind the supernatural revelations they are given.

People in a mind control cult will also hide their true thoughts and feelings, and instead wear a mask which presents them as a perfect cult member. Hence cult members are trained not only to deceive outsiders, but also to deceive their fellow cult members. Mind control cults keep their members so busy with meetings and activities that they become too busy and too tired to think about their involvement.

Time control also helps the cult keep their members immersed in the manufactured cult environment. Together they make Mind Control. Remember, people are not perfect, but if they employ them constantly you are most likely dealing with a cult.

One of the most common forms of commercial cults is the pressure selling organization. These groups ostensibly make money by selling goods via their sales organization, but in reality they make their money by selling goods and motivational materials to their sales organization. Using mind control they seek to enlarge and maintain their sales force, and hence their profits. Some names along with the bad reputations of these groups are well known to the general public, so their recruiters need to be very deceptive.

In fact if asked they might mention a completely different name. Meeting with them will involve a long intense presentation carefully designed to convince you that you could make a lot of money by following their plan. Only near the end will they briefly mention the real organization behind it. Here are some key warning signs that may indicate a cult is trying to recruit you.

Hyped Meetings Rather than explain to you what the group believes or what their programme is up front, they will instead insist that you can only understand it if you come to a group meeting. There everyone around you will seem so enthusiastic that you will start to think there is something wrong with you. They create an environment where you will feel uncomfortable and the only way to become comfortable is to join them.

This is an application of controlled peer pressure. Intense Unrelenting Pressure They call repeatedly. Meet you on campus or outside your work. Trick you into coming for only an hour and then lead you into a long study, meeting or talk. They have to keep the pressure on, otherwise you might snap out of the mind control environment they are trying to immerse you in.

They tell you that they are not a cult. This is a preemptive strike against the warnings from friends and family members which they know will come. In fact some cults go as far to tell you that Satan will try and dissuade you by sending family members and friends to tell you it is a cult. So since the group predicted that would happen, the group therefore must true! Basically if any group tells you that they are not a cult, or that some people call them a cult, then for goodness sake find out why!

The Internet should be your first stop if the group you are interested in or involved with has an international scope. Most of the larger cults will be mentioned by counter-cult organizations like Cultwatch, and commonly many ex-members will have posted their cult involvement stories on the net.

Many of the larger cults hate the net since it allows their members access to information they deem subversive or evil. Also go to the search engines and type in keywords associated with the group, like the name of the group, the leaders or founders name, the titles of books they use and any peculiar words that the group uses. If the group is new or too small to have been exposed on the net then read stories of other people who were in mind control cults. The patterns may seem familiar to you.

How Cults Work. Cults, wonderful on the outside, but are on the inside very manipulating. Cult leaders are desperate to trick you into joining. They are after your obedience, your time and your money. Cults use sophisticated mind control and recruitment techniques that have been refined over time. Beware of thinking that you are immune from cult involvement, the cults have millions of members around the world who once thought they were immune, and to this day still have not realized they are in a cult.

And time control helps keep cult members away from friends and family. Here are some key warning signs to watch out for… Deception.

No valid business needs to use deception. Super hyped meetings, books, tapes, videos, leaflets, products. Here are some key questions to ask the recruiter… Is it XZY group?

Ask them if they are, or are involved with any of the well known commercial cults. Often the recruiter will admit to some connection, and in fact the clever recruiter will plainly state their involvement rather than having their deception uncovered later on. Could I see some properly certified audited accounts which demonstrate this business model working?

Like any business they should be able to provide the hard numbers. Not stories of other people making it big, or generalizations about six figure incomes, or more enthusiastic claims that you can make it if you work hard enough. If this is a new business then you want a business plan, profit and loss projections for the next year, two years and five years. If they claim it is a successful established business then demand to see the books.

These are not unreasonable demands, no successful business person would ever touch a venture without this basic information. Tell the recruiter that you want to run them past your own accountant, and perhaps your lawyer too. The song "Bad Things" also appears in the Hulu true crime drama series The Act during the end credits of the third episode "Two Wolverines", and it was sampled on the track " She Knows " by rapper J. Cole from the album Born Sinner.

Cults Do all cults practice magic, sacrifice animals, and worship Satan? Find out what characteristics distinguish a group as cultic. Learn why some groups who may appear as community social organizations have deeper goals and religious motives.

Learn the history of these cults and discover the basic doctrines of each. Their origins, beliefs, and deception may surprise you! For example if you were a Christian then you could move from one church to another and still be a Christian. No other organization has the truth, all others miss the mark.

So it is not the belief system that decides your future, but it the belief system AND your membership with that particular group. This is a fear based control mechanism designed to keep you in the cult. It also gives the cult leaders tremendous power over you. If you really believe that leaving the group equals leaving God or means you are leaving your only chance to succeed in life , then you will obey the cult leaders even when you disagree with them instead of risking being kicked out of the group.

Exclusivism is used as a threat, it controls your behavior through fear. Be very suspicious of any group that claims to be better than all the others. A religious group may say that other groups following the same religion are OK, but they are the ones who have a better grasp of the truth and they are superior to the rest.

This is often just a subtle version of exclusivism. This is one of the practices that cults are often very deceptive about. Cult leadership is feared. To disagree with leadership is the same as disagreeing with God. The cult leaders will claim to have direct authority from God to control almost all aspects of your life. If the cult is not a religious group then questioning the leaders or program will still be seen as a sign of rebellion and stupidity.

Guilt, Character Assassination and Breaking Sessions. Guilt will be used to control you. Character Assassination is used to help create the guilt in you. Character Assassination is a type of false reasoning used by people and groups who have no real arguments. This is how it works. Imagine if you will a conversation between two men, Ford and Arthur….

Ok, Ford is wrong, but that is not the point. This is the healthy way people and groups debate subjects. Now lets see what would have happened if Ford had used Character Assassination….

How dare you disagree with me! You are obviously a very smug and prideful person. If you are not aware of how Character Assassination works then it is a powerful way to exert control over you. Breaking sessions are when one, two or more cult members and leaders attack the character of another person, sometimes for hours on end.

Some cults will not stop these sessions until their victim is crying uncontrollably. Cults know that if they can control your relationships then they can control you. Whether we like it or not we are all profoundly affected by those around us. It will seem wonderful, how could such a loving group be wrong! This unspoken threat influences your actions in the cult.

Like in an unhealthy relationship love is turned on and off to control. Cults also try to cut you off from your friends and family because they hate others being able to influence you. A mind control cult will seek to manoeuvre your life so as to maximize your contact with cult members and minimize your contact with people outside the group, especially those who oppose your involvement.

Those who control the information control the person. In a mind control cult any information from outside the cult is considered evil, especially if it is opposing the cult. Members are told not to read it or believe it. Only information supplied by the cult is true.

Cults train their members to instantly destroy any critical information given to them, and to not even entertain the thought that the information could be true. Common sense tells us that a person who does not consider all information may make an unbalanced decision.
