SCIENTOLOGY: TRUTH OR CULT 2

Scientology: the Truth

Scientology had its beginnings in 1950 as a religion based on self. It is a non-Christian applied religious philosophy. Scientology is another cult that has little to do with science or scientists. Scientology’s highest authority is not the Christian Bible but a science fiction writer named L. Ron Hubbard.

Scientology(meaning “knowing how to know”) posits that man has a mind, body, and spirit (known as the “thetan”). We are  spiritual beings. 

People in Scientology spend exorbitant fees, sometimes as much as $1000 per hour, to attain the exalted state of operating thetan,” or “OT” (pronounced “oh-tee”) .Books are sold, counseling sessions are expensive. Scientology has no salvation to offer the poor. Nothing is said about the plight of the poor, the sick, the homeless and oppressed.

One veteran Scientologist told me she “donated” $250,000 in a twenty-year period. Other Scientologists can wind up spending family inheritances and mortgaging homes to pay the fees. 

Scientology has a warped code of ethics. In the Scientology code are such statements as “Never fear to hurt another in a just cause,” and “To punish to the fullest extent of my power anyone misusing or degrading Scientology to harmful ends.”

The concept of God, or a Supreme Being, does exist, but it’s of little importance in the Scientology system.  

Scientologists believe that they too can become gods. Scientology deifies Man (capitalized in their writings). Man’s reason will produce perfect behavior and therefore solve all the problems of the human predicament.

Man is basically good, but “engrams” (psychological hang-ups) prevent him from reaching his full potential. When released from these engrams through the sect’s techniques, man begins to live on a higher level in terms of his own human achievement. Opps!  “The church is a big, scary deal,” wrote one Scientologist.  I wish “I could save just one person the money, heartache and mind-bending control, then all would be worth it.”

A Hollywood script, LOUIS THEROUX: MY SCIENTOLOGY MOVIE proves that what people do in the name of religion can be truly stranger than fiction.

Hare Krishna God? 2

A HARE KRISHNA GOD?

Krishna is the so called God, or “Supreme Personality Universe” Followers go into the prayer room, bowing down to false idols, as there are many idols on a platform.  The view of God is basically pantheistic, meaning that they believe God is all and in all. For Hare Krishnas, God is everything and everything is God. 

Hare Krishna

They will always believe themselves above all other, on a special pedestal thinking they are the only ones destined for Godhead and everyone else are doomed.

The “monotheism” of Hare Krishna is a little muddled, however, as Sri Krishna has an “eternal consort” named Srimati Radharani; together, Krishna and Radharani comprise the “Divine Couple.”

The belief in reincarnation is explained as one’s works, good and bad, are measured and judged after death. If one’s deeds are good, he continues to be reincarnated into higher life forms; if his deeds are bad, he will become a lower life form. One can cease the cycles of rebirth and realize his oneness with Krishna.

The goal of the Hare Krishna is to reach “Krishna consciousness,” a kind of enlightenment, so that man is ultimately identical to God. This is an old lie dating back to the Garden of Eden: “You will be as God” (Genesis 3:5).

They believe that by spiritual austerity, by chanting, by rising early, and purifying yourself, that gradually you can evolve to a platform where you are completely free from material desire. “I don’t believe that anybody’s come to that platform,” observed one follower. In fact, you have feelings of guilt and remorse that you can’t always be on this platform, and psychologically you start to berate yourself.

They get you to the point where they don’t have any self-worth anymore. The only thing that is worth is serving Krishna (god): being a robot for God.

Cult Phenomenon

The cult phenomenon always come all wrapped in a nice looking ‘package’ and sweetened with one form of bait or another only to sap one’s essence as well as their pocketbook. The purpose of all these cults  is to defuse and distract. For those living in the temple, it is a true cult. (If you do not live in the Temple, you are considered a Householder and can live your life as you see fit, which is a vast difference.)

Here is a summary of the main criticism of Hare Krishna (HK) or ISKCON: Continue reading Hare Krishna God? 2

NEW AGE ENERGY FORCE 2

God is an impersonal “energy force”?

NEW AGE ENERGY FORCE

YOU’VE DIED! NOW WHAT?

What happens to your life after death? New Age defines GOD only as an “energy force”. New Age Followers have not addressed this important question about the Creator. It is really not a religion that connects with one’s personal Creator. Would you not meet wish to meet your Creator one day?

Defining ‘New Age’ is  a difficult thing to do, since it means so many different things to different people.  

new age belief

They teach you false descriptions and definitions of who and/or what God is. Most New Age teachings deny the truth that Satan exists. Most New Age teachings deny that Hell exists, and so they leave you with a false sense of security — feeling as though anything you do is “alright” as we’re all here just learning lessons, and we all wind up in the end, in the same paradise — back home with God, as we “evolve” our way back to our “Godhood.”

The reincarnation teachings are especially hazardous as people are lead to believe that we all live thousands of life-times, and we’ll get a thousand chances to “get it right.”

Your feelings are suppose to be your wisest guide in all matters. The Law of Attraction teachings cause people to act in reckless ways, believing they’re “safe” as long as they’re feeling good. 

New Age is narcissistic: YOU ARE AN UNLIMITED SUPER-BEING: “There is nothing that you cannot have, or do, or be”… Human potential is limitless… “Conceive it and you can achieve it.

Channeling is actually dangerous since God forbids us to seek out or invoke unknown spirits that speak through mediums, “Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the Lord your God.” Leviticus 19:31

Come Again?

Reincarnation is either true or it is not true. It cannot be that for one person it is true and for another it is false. 

Hindus believe that there is no “evil,” apart from the failings of human conscience, and Satan doesn’t exist. Nowhere does one mention the possibility of repentance or forgiveness.

Believers in reincarnation are left only with tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow, a constant returning until they “complete their life plans.”  It tends toward moral laxity because no matter how bad someone is in this life, he gets another shot… and another… and another!  If people have many different lives to lead, then they can play around a lot more and be a lot more experimental about how they will conduct themselves morally.

The human physical brain has no memory of past lives. We don’t have anything to improve on in that first life because we haven’t had a life yet….have we?  I can learn from my mistakes only if I remember them, but there is no continuity of memory.

Is Reincarnation Biblical?

Jesus taught about Judgment and Heaven and Hell. The Bible clearly teaches that righteous people will NEVER suffer torment because they have a confident hope of IMMORTALITY, and that the wicked will suffer in a fire that NEVER goes out: “(He) will gather the wheat into His garner; but the chaff He will burn with fire unquenchable.”                                                                                         Luke 3:17

When “the single course of our earthly life” is completed, we shall not return to other earthly lives: “It is appointed for men to die once.” There is no “reincarnation” after death in the Bible:  “Just as it is appointed that human beings die once, and after this the judgment.”                                                                                               Hebrews 9:27 

Sikhism Reincarnation Biblical

It is also contradicted by our Lord Himself: “You are from below, I am from above; you are of this world, I am not of this world.”                                                                                                                                            John 8:23: Continue reading NEW AGE ENERGY FORCE 2
