QUICK FACTS ON THE CULTS
(I recently went inside Preston's multi-million
pound Mormon temple,
I was able to witness to the man at
the reception desk, who I recall wore a white suit.
Mormons (Latter-Day Saints)
He ignorantly believed he was one of Jesus' descendants.
Mormon 'apostle' Orson Pratt taught that Jesus had three wives and children when He was on earth.
They teach that Elohiym (Heavenly Father) also had many wives and therefore fathered many children.
Early Mormon writers said that Elohiym and one of his many wives came to earth to be Adam and Eve and start the human race. Later Elohiym had sex with Mary and thus fathered Jesus.
Elohiym, they believe, had his own parents and was once like man is today - a literal human being before he was 'promoted' to deity.
LDS members must be married and living 'good lives' if they ever hope to become gods; Mormon bishops even encourage divorce, when partners don't live-up to their strict teachings and doctrines.
Many billions of Mormon gods once were men and women that exist today rule all the planets of the universe.
"Shall I tell you the law of God in regard to the African race? If the white man who belongs to the chosen seed mixes his blood with the seed of Cain, the penalty, under the law of God, is damnation on the spot. This will always be so" (Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses, Vol. 10, p. 110.)
"If there is one drop of Negro blood in my children, as I have read to you, they receive the curse" (Apostle Mark E. Petersen, Race Problems as they effect the Church, p. 7.)
"Negroes in this life are denied the Priesthood; under no circumstances can they hold this delegation of authority from the Almighty" (Mormon 'Apostle' Bruce R. McConkie, Mormon Doctrine, 1966, p. 527.)
"The gospel message of salvation is not carried affirmatively to them....Negroes are not equal with other races where the receipt of certain spiritual blessings are concerned, particularly the priesthood and the temple blessings that flow there from, but this inequality is not of man's origin. It is the Lord's doing, is based on his eternal laws of justice, and grows out of the lack of spiritual valiance of those concerned in their first estate" (Bruce R. McConkie, Mormon Doctrine, 1966, p. 527, 28.)
Mormons believe that all black people today are bad spirits and white people are good spirits. Black people, according to Young, were barred from the Mormon priesthood, due to God's 'eternal laws,' yet in the late 1970s, the Mormon gods apparently changed their minds. So much for the 'eternal laws' of justice.
"However, in a broad general sense, caste systems have their root and origin in the gospel itself, and when they operate according to the divine decree, the resultant restrictions and segregation are right and proper and have the approval of the Lord. To illustrate: Cain, Ham and the whole Negro race have been cursed with a black skin, the mark of Cain, so they can be identified as a caste apart, a people with whom the other descendants of Adam should not intermarry" (Bruce R. McConkie, Mormon Doctrine, 1966, p. 114.)
Mormonism's perpetual racism is not propagated in Scripture:
"God is no respecter of persons" (Acts 10:34.)
"And [God] hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation" (Acts 17:26.)
"All have sinned and come short of the glory of God" (Rom. 3:23.)
The book of Mormon, they claim, was actually written by an individual called Mormon in America, after Jesus 'apparently appeared' to the Red Indians, which they believe to be the Jews of the Bible.
And this same book calls the Body of Christ 'the whore of Babylon.'
The nine versions of Smith's first alleged vision contradicts itself in several ways:
Two hundred words have been omitted from Doctrines and Covenants.
Smith made a false prophecy, when he stated that man lived on the moon. Brigham Young not only affirmed this but also went one step further by teaching that the Sun was also inhabited.
Over six hundred people run and maintain the LDS' gigantic computer system, which records every living and dead persons records from the cradle to the grave, so when the Mormon Jesus returns, he knows who is where.
Temple garments must never be removed and no clothing can be placed beneath them.
The term 'Mormon' which is also found in the Satanic bible is translated from Chinese to be 'Gates of Hell.'
They enjoy shares in the LA Times; own Beneficial Life Tower (worth $2.6 billion) and the Marriott hotel chain, with the book of Mormon left out in every room.
With seventy five percent of Utah being Mormon, stock fraud is very high there
One thousand percent increase in UK membership in recent years.
Chapels are being built on an average of two a day around the world.
Monday night for the Mormon is family night.
They are not allowed to drink alcohol, soft drinks or smoke.
The following quote, taken directly from an official Watchtower publication, demonstrates most clearly that the Jesus of the JW's is not the Jesus of the Holy Bible, but a demonic Jesus, for Abaddon and Apollyon are both names for Satan:
"When Jesus was on earth as a man, he was a Hebrew, and now in his capacity as Jehovah's royal Executioner he is called by the Hebrew name Abad'don, which means Destruction. In the Greek in which the inspired Christian Scriptures were written his similar title is Apollyon, which means Destroyer" (Watchtower, 12/1/1961, p. 719.)
Thousands of members of this sect have died worldwide because they refused to allow relatives (adults and children) to receive urgent blood transfusions. In some countries, JW parents have been imprisoned for manslaughter.
Suicide and divorce rates are very high among them.
Members are excommunicated if they visit a church or are caught fellowshipping with genuine Christians.
In countries where military service is mandatory, elders in this religion have been known to bribe government officials, like they do in Mexico, to avoid young Witnesses having to fight in the armed services.
Ron Hubbard would be married three times, with his second wife, Sarah, deeming him 'hopelessly insane.'
His out of body experience (he thought he had died) was nothing more than a bad chemical reaction while he was having his teeth extracted at the dentist. (This hallucination was responsible for one of his early publications, which multitudes sadly bought into.)
He lied about being blinded during World War II and subsequently healing himself. (US Naval records, released under the freedom of information act, only report him to have suffered from ulcer problems and some short-sightedness.)
Would also boast about healing eleven other victims of blindness and some forty insane patients.
Was very successful at hypnotising people; did this many times.
Barbara Kaye, a PR expert, was hired by Ron after his humiliation during his book launch/talk on Dianetics: one of his test patients was unable to remember some of the very basic questions that this book/course detailed and therefore Hubbard was quickly dubbed a conman. (During this time, Hubbard not only had an affair with Barbara, but had also married for the second time to Sarah. Polly his first wife had given him two children. And he would later lie on camera about ever being married to his second wife.)
Barbara Kaye said he suffered from clinical depression and due to writers block, he blamed Sarah for hypnotising him through his dreams.
Mary Sue, his third and final wife, would end up going to prison for her involvement in 'Snow White,' a covet operation which saw high level members of this cult foolishly infiltrating government agencies and seeking to take them over and stamp out 'hate groups,' with the purpose of making the world Scientology.
Hana Eltringham, who was Hubbard's deputy at Sea, told how he was very ambitious, obsessed with money, power and influence. So much so that he went to Rhodesia to try and set up Scientology there, but to the credit of the Rhodesian government, they became suspicious of him and revoked his visa.
When the British and American Governments started investigations into his brainwashing techniques, he took to the high seas and become his own captain (his disciples called him the 'commodore.')
Members of his cult (all dressed in Navel uniforms) flocked to him and Hubbard implemented a cruel and sadistic form of rule on board. Hana Eltringham recalls one lady in her fifties (Julia Lewis Salmon) being tied up and blindfolded before being thrown into the sea (against her will) for not towing the line.
She also recalls another occasion, when a four year old boy (Derek Green), was locked in a pitch black room for two days and two nights for punishment, because he had chewed a telex for Hubbard, and even when crew members (some mothers) heard his sobbing, nobody went to his aide. (Hana called this sad episode 'child abuse' and no doubt now wishes she had intervened for young Derek's welfare.)
Hubbard also owned at least two other ships, with one being a 3000-ton ship. As 'commodore,' he would also enjoy many 'female servants,' some as young as thirteen or fourteen, being at his constant beck and call.
Gerry Armstrong, his Household Manager called Hubbard a "ruthless, charming, uncaring and cruel man."
In 1973 a French court started legal proceedings against him, so he fled to New York in hiding.
One of his sons (Quinton, a fellow Scientologist) committed suicide for being a homosexual.
In 1978 the Scientologists were earning $500,000 per week.
With the arrest of his third wife, Hubbard remained the rest of his years living in seclusion and according to Robert Vaughn Young, his Press Officer, Hubbard not only lived in contestant fear, but ended up like Howard Hughes, with a long beard, long hair and very long nails.
The Moonies (The Unification Church)
"Rev." Moon was arguably the wealthiest cult leader in the world.
One of his sons committed suicide in 1999, when he 'mysteriously' fell out of a hotel window in Las Vegas (his father made many trips to Vegas to play the tables and live the good life.)
Moon enjoyed an air of reverence, with armed bodyguards following his every move.
Said when he was a POW in the Korean War, he atoned for the sins of the world. (This same death camp, according to another son, is where Moon learnt his brainwashing techniques, which sadly his unsuspecting disciples suffered terribly from. Former member Ron Paquette affirms this fact.)
As early as the 1950's, FBI reports were not only stating that Moon was enjoying sexual favours (he called it 'purifying them') with his young and some married disciples, but also reported that for Moon to lure people into his cult it "depends on very subtle....deceptive factors."
This deception is something that former Moonie, Cathryn Mazer knows only too well. She was lied to when she enquired about whether or not the people trying to proselytise her were Moonies or not. By the time she knew the truth she had already been successfully indoctrinated and later would complain to the BBC about being sent out on the streets of the US for 14-16 hours a day, earning hundreds of dollars, and then expected to live on junk food, until her lift came to pick her up and take her back to their house.
Cathryn also told about routine lying to her devastated family, which was encouraged by the Moonies. She also confessed to being terrified of the consequences of what might happen to her if she betrayed Moon.
Moon with his messianic views once said the following: "I am your true parent." And: "There will come a time when my words almost become law."
Members when in his presence were expected to prostrate.
The greatest 'gift' a Moonie could receive was to have Moon marry members of this cult.
Moon paid a few million dollars for the hotel the New Yorker.
He owned the Washington Times.
In 1976, 300,000 attended one of his US crusades.
Funded death squads in Latin America; very much seen as a fascist.
Claimed success in the fall of communism.
In 1989, another son was killed in a car crash. Because he died unmarried, Moon arranged for a woman to marry his corpse and a child was found so as to allow this 'couple' to raise their child. When he died and went to Heaven, Jesus apparently 'bowed down' to his son.
John Thomas (1805-1871) founded this group.
Some predictions/prophecies he made never came to pass (like Miller and White from the SDA.)
They believe in the thousand-year reign of Christ but no pre-trib rapture.
(Col. 3:4 states that the saints come with Jesus before He reigns on earth.)
They deny Jesus is God.
(John 8:24; Tit. 2:13 prove He is.)
No eternal Hell.
(Mark 9:43-50; 2 Thess. 1:8-10 proves this is untrue.)
Repentance and baptism saves sinners.
(1 Cor. 1:17; Eph. 2:8,9 shows we are saved by faith alone in Christ alone.)
Soul sleep for saved people that die.
(2 Cor. 5:8; Rev. 6:9 demonstrate that the saved man or woman goes straight to be with the Lord at death.)
Reject the Trinity
(The Father is omnipresent, Jer. 23:2; the Son is, Matt. 18.20; and the Holy Spirit is, Ps. 139:7.)
