Scientology is one of the proofs that to escape Christian truth some will believe the most outlandish lie and pay thousands of dollars for holding tin cans with wires attached.


2Co 4:4

In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.


2Th 2:10

And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish, because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

David Miscavage's (the nutjob who took over from Hubbard) niece, a former Scientologist, has recently published an autobiography about how crazy the "religion" is.

And you can't go past Morton's unauthorised biography of that couch-jumpin' fool Tom Cruise. Morton's book is really an expose of Scientology through the weirdness of Cruise.

Both are great reads.

To Sin, "Ron Hubbard ..... is now on to other galaxy for further discovery ..... the person of Ron Hubbard is the greatest gift to humanity."

Are you a scientologist? R. H. will be wherever his remains now are. They are all that is left of him until the resurrection and he will be judged for misleading so many. He is not living happily in another galaxy. He was no gift to anyone.

Sin: "the person of Ron Hubbard is the greatest gift to humanity."

Uhh, I thought that distinction went to Jesus Christ. L. Ron was an idiot, as are all who follow him.

BTW Sin, have you considered changing your name?

"...Ron Hubbard who finished this life after getting all there is to get out of it and is now on to other galaxy for further discovery..."
---sin on 11/3/14


Sin: You know that how? Has L. Ron sent you an email, a text message, a tweet, a shout out ~ what?! :)

It is a form of Science fiction that has aliens introduced into humans.

If is a very vicious religion attacking it's critics with lawsuits.

It is antichristian.
---Samuelbb7 on 11/3/14


Scientology is an alternative religion begun by Ron Hubbard who finished this life after getting all there is to get out of it and is now on to other galaxy for further discovery. Ron praised Buddism and gained some recognition from buddist priests and as taught by Scientology, the person of Ron Hubbard is the greatest gift to humanity. Tom Cruise and John Travolta are Scientologists. Their are techniques for improving memory skills taught in Scientology. They like sublimial messages and personal data to keep on file.

It's commandments n doctrines of men just like the trinity in Rev.17 vs 4 5 6, with the influence of spiritual darkness. 2nd Cor.11 vs 14 15.
---Lawrence on 10/1/14


Absolutely. It is very popular amongst the stars. It is a cult that has various degrees of indoctrination. Each stage requires a "dianetics audit", which members pay several hundreds of dollars to be certified. The goal is to become a "clear", or clear-thinking individual that is wise in the ways of the cult and free from worldy thinking and doctrine. There is no question whatsoever that this is a cult that has strong teachings which are in direct conflict with Bible doctrine.

The science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard once said the best way to make money in this world is to start your own religion. Years later, he started Scientology and made millions.

Wikipedia has a good article on what Scientologists believe. It is a mix of junk psychology and wild science fiction.

Basically, all problems come from mental "engrams" that unconciously enslave us. Unlike psychology (that says traumas mess us up), Scientology says traumas in PAST lives mess up THIS life.
---Mark on 8/23/07




At high levels, one learns that evil galactic overlord Xenu brought billions of people who opposed him to Earth, imprisoned them in several volcanoes, then blew them up with hydrogen bombs. (The cover of the book "Dianetics" shows an exploding volcano)

Their disembodied souls ("thetans") now haunt the living, causing ills that can only be fixed by purging the body of them.

This sounds like bad science fiction. but it is in the secret high-level Scientology scriptures.

there is a good site called 'OPERATION CLAMBAKE' that exposes a lot about how they work and how much it really costs.
---Andrea on 8/15/07


Jennifer - That is exactly what Amway do. It is a multi-level marketing thing that promises great riches. They do not tell people upfront who they are. It also claims a form of Christianity, but it is a cult. Whatever it is you are receiving, I suggest you just throw it in the bin. They can't hurt you.

Ian ... If they delivered and you beleived them, they would bend your mind (as well as emptying your wallet, unless you are super-rich)
---alan_of_UK on 8/15/07


**Ian said:. It wouldn't be so bad if they delivered.
Delivered what?
---JIM on 8/15/07


If a man really wants to make a million dollars, the best way would be to start his own religion."[75][76]
there were others that quoted Hubbard as saying he was going to start a religion - that was where the money was. wikipedia

Same lie different day.

Scientology is a scam, the members must be rich- Its a money maker-false right in line with the Doctrine of Balaam.
---Marcia on 8/15/07


Jennifer ... I just ignored it, and eventually they must have taken me off their mailing list.
But I had seen enough to keep wtching in the press for items about them, and still occasionally recieived a news,etter.
As you said, full of promises of wealth, health, power.
And of stories of the misfortunes befalling those who had the temerity to leave.
---alan_of_UK on 8/15/07


It wouldn't be so bad if they delivered... But it won't be you getting rich if you join them. I tried to acquire thier book, but they wanted a mandatory "donation" of 5 bucks. I AM NOT paying for such propaganda...
---Ian on 8/14/07


I'm certain that's what these letters are about, they promise success and everything you've ever wanted. Reading them reminds me of satan tempting Jesus in the desert, promising Him everything. They promise everything will work your way, it's witchcraft. They will not tell you what or who they are, it's sinister, and they creep me out.
So how did you get them to stop, Alan?

Actually Jennifer, for some reason a sciwentologist was invited to speak at a club I belonged to. No-one was impressed by all he was saying that scientolgy would make you rich.
But we wanted to see more of what they claimed (for interest only) and I was the guy that gave the address to send it to!
---alan_of_UK on 8/14/07


Alan, someone mailed us one of those creepy Natural Cures book from TV. We've been getting strange letters in the mail, inviting us to explore something so full of wisdom, success, etc. Is that what these letters are? They won't tell you what it is, just witchcraft type enticements to get you to mail it back?
Is that what happened to you. These letters keep coming. I know it has to do with that Natural Cure book. In the back there's a mention of scientology, more info appreciated, Alan.
---Jennifer on 8/13/07


I believe we've chucked the book in the garbage. Alan, did you send one of those letters back in and then they started mailing you creepy type letters tormenting you back?
---Jennifer on 8/13/07


All cults have a measure of truth.
It is frightening how powerful a delusion this holds. They mix very real concepts about mental health and personal growth and use it to promote their religion.
It looks similiar to what I see going on on TBN sometimes.

NOW thats really frightening.

Notlaw ...# 1 I have had dealings with the Scientology movement when they tried to get me to join them.
I had asked for details, which they sent me. This was followed up by attempts to blackmail me into joining, then to use threats of "things happening to me" if I did not pay the subscription.
---alan_of_UK on 8/13/07


Notlaw ...# 2 If someone gets as far as staying at their UK HQ at Saints Hill, in Sussex, that person is virtually kidnapped and prevented from leaving, and all connections with family are cut.
Threats against safety are made if someone tries to leave.
Brainwashing is used.
Not a cult ... you must be joking!
---alan_of_UK on 8/13/07


One year after his death...Church of Scientology announced Hubbard had deliberately discarded his body to do "higher level spiritual research," unencumbered by mortal confines, and was now living "on a planet a galaxy away.
---Andrea on 8/13/07


Hubbard was, unknown to her, still married to his first wife at the time he married Sara. Her divorce papers also accused Hubbard of kidnapping their baby daughter Alexis, and of conducting "systematic torture, beatings, strangulations and scientific torture experiments."[54] The furor actually made it into several newspapers and from there into Hubbard's growing file at the FBI.[55]
wikipedia.....mind control is just the beginning.....

Reader's Digest article of May 1980 quoted Hubbard as saying in the 1940s "Writing for a penny a word is ridiculous. If a man really wants to make a million dollars, the best way would be to start his own religion."[75][76]
there were others that quoted Hubbard as saying he was going to start a religion - that was where the money was. wikipedia
How true.

I guess this would qualify as a cult. dah
---Andrea on 8/13/07


I believed just the opposite of this statement."Though Scientology is a strange belief system contrived by L Ron Hubbard, I don't think it has the classical requirements of a cult" because I believe most of the cults have been started by individuals just as Scientology was started by L. Ron Hubbard. And I'm certain Scientology is a cult.
---Mima on 8/13/07


Though Scientology is a strange belief system contrived by L Ron Hubbard, I don't think it has the classical requirements of a cult, using mind control techniques to control it members and the like. It is just something to be avoided.
