HOW CAN CULT KILLERS DESTROY LIFE AND LIMB, AS WELL AS ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN, WITH THE CONSENT OF THEIR FOLLOWERS?

In the ‘Killer-Cult’ series on ‘Crime and Investigation’ channel, the producers painted a horrific but realistic picture of notorious cult leaders such as Jim Jones, and Ex-Seventh Day Adventist David Koresh. 

Wikipedia wrote, “In 1952, Jim Jones… witnessed a faith healing at the Baptist Church.  He observed that it attracted people and their money and concluded that, with financial resources from such healings, he could accomplish his social goals… Jones organized a mammoth religious convention… inviting [Pentecostal Oneness or false Jesus Only] pastor William Branham… highly revered by some as Oral Roberts and Billy Graham…  Jones then began his own church…  The Peoples Temple…  By the 1970s, Jones…  [assumed the role of God’s “final god-man prophet,” and] rejected “The Letter That Killeth,” the Bible.  He began preaching that he was the reincarnation of Gandhi and Father Devine, as well as Jesus of Nazareth, Gautama Buddha, and Vladimir Lenin…” 

What evil must have possessed and controlled this madman — and the many people he led into eternal destruction with Him?  Because in in 1978, Jim Jones incited some 900 people to commit mass suicide. 

Just as the psychopath Jim Jones, former Seventh-Day Adventist Vernon Wayne Howell, demon-possessed leader of the Branch Dividian, also believed himself to be God’s “final prophet” to this self-destructing world.  He assumed Jewish ancestry by changing his name legally to David Koresh.  He also claimed Jewish royalty (after the royal house of old King David,) by making his surname Koresh into an anagram of King Cyrus the Great, calling himself “King of the Jews” or Jesus Christ Himself.  He fantasized about setting up “a new Jerusalem” on the farm “Palestine” outside Waco, Texas.  As the lunatic Jim Jones, Koresh also tortured his followers psychologically, physically, sexually, and spiritually, and even claimed the men’s wives as his own! (He must have tried to mirror Old King Solomon’s incredible sin as well!)   

In 1993, Koresh, 54 members of the Branch Dividian, and 28 children died in the FBI raid on their farm. 

Watching the unfolding of the satanic atrocities of these charismatic leaders, who seemed so sincere in the beginning, one cannot help but wonder how a man - a mere human being - could lead so many people into such great error; claiming their finances and wives, raping their daughters and their sons; destroying their families and souls; and eventually, robbing them of their mortal lives and their eternal salvation. 

Such devastating control over gullible believers, families, spouses, children, and parents mostly happen for the following reasons. 

· People generally underestimate the power of personal charisma and the deceptive spirits that steer controlling people.  Their victims blindly tolerate such seriously disturbed abuse of God-given Scripture, because carelessness result in demonic control and ultimately, demonic infestation of those who submit to false authority, (Mt 12:43-45.)  Paul wrote in 2 Ths. 2:9-12, “The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.  [We must bravely love all truth, as Truth is the safeguard against deception.  This is why] strong delusion [will overtake victims] that they should believe the lie, and may be condemned because they did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”  [The fear of man and of being alone always binds people to dangerous abusers.] 

· Exploiting the human need for leadership, love, acceptance, safety, and company, all cultic leaders bring their followers so-called ‘Biblical revelation’ to make them believe they, (the leaders,) are ‘special,’ ‘hear constantly and directly from God,’ and are God’s end-time, divinely-chosen christs and gods.  Thus, as “god fathers and mothers,” they have ‘unique truth’ and operate in complete control of the spirit world.  They can protect them and lead them via a divine escape route, which will take them out of all the ills of this world. 

· These leaders abuse and constantly indoctrinate their victims with false prophecies, ‘new revelations,’ and false interpretations of the Bible, which, in disobedience to the clear commandments of Scripture, no one ever “tests,” but trustingly accepts as “God’s special truth,” (1 Ths. 5:21; 1 Jn. 1:1-4.) 

· Often, as David Koresh did, these leaders change their names and assume Biblical aliases such as ‘David.’  [Speaking of which, let us not forget the ‘visionary’ Buddhist/Christian father of the cell-church system, ‘David’ Yonggi Cho, (scroll down on the webpage,) who used occult visualization techniques to build the biggest church in Asia!] 

· Cult-leaders always see themselves as God’s ‘anointed’ leaders and ‘final’ end-time prophets – mostly, this false perception of leadership eventually grows into the delusion that they themselves are not only ‘mediating end time Moseses or Elijas,’ but God Himself “in the flesh!”  As such, these blasphemers demand unconditional obedience and total submission to their ‘final authority,’ and place themselves above questioning and accountability

It is amazing how many Scriptures one will find to use out of context to back false doctrine, but Ps. 119:160 clearly states, "The entirety of Your Word is truth."  One thing is certain, Satan does indeed ‘come to steal [God’s truth, His Word, (Mark 4:3-20,)] kill, [the soul and body, Mt. 10:28,] and destroy, [everything Godly and good, Gal. 1:3.]’  While our Lord Jesus Christ came so that we ‘may have life, and have it more abundantly,’ it remains a fact that none of us is above deception and error, as none of us fallible humans has all the answers.  That is why Jesus constantly warned, “Be careful how you hear [or listen.] Beware of false prophets… Take heed that no one deceives you… Watch [and be careful..]” (Lu. 8:18; Mt. 24:4, 25:13; Mark 4:24…)

There was only ONE perfect human being Who knew and understood everything: the Man Jesus Christ.  Thus, God made us part of Jesus’ body, where we can minister to one another, and keep one another accountable, safe, and healthy, (1 Pt. 3:15; Tit. 1:13, Jam. 5:16.)  To this effect, Paul wrote to Timothy, “Remind them of these things, charging them before the Lord…  Be… a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth,’ [because] ‘ALL Scripture, [the entire context of the Word] is given by inspiration, [not dictation] of God, and is profitable for… reproof, correction, for instruction in righteousness.’  – 2 Tim. 2:14-16; 3:16.  Leaders are not excluded from these commandments.  In fact, leaders are “more accountable” because they are leaders. 

Cults and cultic practices do not always end in mass murder or mass suicideThey do, however, always rob believers of their personal relationship with God the Father through His Son Jesus Christ, in the power of His Holy Spirit.  Most often, members of such systems do not realize that the thief had robbed them of their salvation long before he robbed them of their dignity and possessions, as the unchanging Word of the Lord Jesus Christ states in Jn. 4:21-24, “God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in Spirit and Truth.”  To teach us His Truth, the Father sent the Holy Spirit to guide us into “All Truth,”  (Jn. 16:13.)  If we reject the truth, we reject the Spirit of Truth. 

 

WHAT MAKES A CHRISTIAN DENOMINATION, CHURCH, HOME CELL, OR ANY OTHER STRANGE CHRISTIAN DIVISION A CULT OR SECT?

According to the Word of God, all lies and deceptions stem directly from Satan.  He knows all that is good because God created him as a perfect, highly intelligent, very powerful, holy angel.  He also knows everything that is evil, because he himself, choosing to become the leader of all rebellious angels and people, is the author of all lies, deception, destruction, theft, and murder, (Jn. 8:44.)  Therefore, this dark dual or good and bad character with the original debased mind, is the perfect religionist and theologian.  (Religion with its theological teachings can be anything: Hinduism, Buddhism, Satanism, Christianity...  In short, religion is everything that hides a godless heart and a personal agenda behind a pretence of godliness, but never personally submits to the Omnipotent Lordship and Scriptural Authority of the God of the Bible, the Lord Jesus Christ.)  This great theologian is also in control of all religious people, in particular, Pharisaical church members from all denominations, who were made into fake disciples of Christ by the bogus leaders in control of the many schisms of Christianity.  These leaders pretend to be ‘angels of light,’ while they do not follow the Lord Jesus Christ of the Bible because they do not really believe, obey, or teach the Truth of His Word, as revealed in the full context of the Bible, (2 Cor. 11:13-14; Ps. 119:160.)  Nevertheless, to get to the hearts, minds, pockets, and eternal lives of their followers, Christian theologians use the Bible to teach some verses here and other verses there to justify their unscriptural church dogmas, norms, and forms. 

· As a result, we can safely say, if there were no Satanically inspired church doctrines, norms and forms, and all the believers of Christ kept to the real truth of God’s contextual Word, the Bible, (Who is actually the Lord Jesus Christ Himself,) there would never have been any denominational divisions, despotically housing Christianity in their pagan church buildings as the ‘house of God.’ (Read the truth about those church buildings in Acts 7:48; 17:24; and compare it to 1 Cor. 3:16-17; 6:15-20.) 

· According to the contextual truth of God’s Word, all denominations (or divisions) of the Christendom, (which were all birthed by their mother that great pagan, Christianized Roman Catholic Church,) are indeed great cults and sects, who fundamentally belong to their great theologian Satan, not to the Holy Truth, the Lord Jesus Christ of the Bible.  So, Jesus said, “...If you abide in My Word, [not in your many false interpretations of the Bible,] you are truly My disciples… If you love Me, keep My [New Testament Covenant, Moral Law] commandments.  A New [Covenant, Moral Law] Commandment, [the Only law of the New Testament,] I give unto you, that you Love one another [in deed an truth…]  By this all will know that you are My disciples...”  (Jn. 8:31; 14:15; 13:34.)

· Defining the following according to the church system, we can say:

1) A sect is “a religious group with beliefs and practices at variance with those from established main religious groups [such as Roman Catholicism, her Protestant daughters, and their many other Christian schisms.]” 

2) A cult is “a system of religious beliefs,” encapsulated by an informal belief system, which is not recognized by established, state registered religions, [such as Catholicism, Calvinism, Lutherism, etcetera.]  This is so, because cults are [in the opinion of all state registered sects,] “misguided, unorthodox, extremist, false, and directed by a charismatic, authoritarian leader.” [Thesaurus.] 

· By God’s definition, we can say

1. Both cults and sects are all those who are “at variance” with the Contextual Truth of God’s Word, and therefore, in disobedience to His Only New Testament Covenant and inner Law; the Moral Law of Love, (Jn. 13:34; Gal. 2:21.) 

2. Consequently, all sects and cults are enemies of God Himself and His truly blood-cleansed, Moral-Law abiding disciples, as Jesus declared though His disciple James, “[Spiritual] adulterers and adulteresses!  Do you not know that friendship with the [political-religious] world is enmity with God?  Whoever wants to be a friend of the [political/religious] world makes himself an enemy of God…” (Jam. 4:1-10.) 

Yet, the tendency of recognized, politically recognized sects and cults, (even those who date back to the days of Jesus and Paul in the form of the Jewish Sanhedrin,) was to persecute and brutally murder Jesus’ true disciples legally, (with the support of the state, as Saul himself did before Jesus met him on the road to Damascus,) because these disciples dare to defy the status quo with the True Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.  In Paul’s defense against the high priest Ananias before Felix, he said, (paraphrased in the context of the passage,) “The religious establishment of the Jews, (which is a real sect and cult,) has accused me of preaching the Gospel of Christ, thus speaking against Jewish temple legalism and ceremonial ritualism.  As with Jesus our Lord, they have charged me with sedition, instigating political revolution, and blasphemy. They cannot prove the things of which they accuse me.  However, this I confess to you, that according to The Way, which they falsely call a sect, so I worship the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the Law and the Prophets [the entire Old Testament Covenant].  Only, that I do not live by the ceremonial precepts of the Old Covenant anymore, as I now serve the Lord Jesus Christ according to the spiritual, New Testament Covenant and the only law He commanded, the Moral Law of Love.”  (Acts 24:1-27.)  

 

IDENTIFYING SECT  AND CULT LEADERS 

Remember, there is no way to change these leaders. God never commanded us to submit to such dangerous, false authority but to confront them where possible, flee from them, and expose them to warn others.  Eph. 5:11, “Have nothing to do with the unfruitful works of darkness but rather expose them.” Such leaders are very troubled people with extremely selfish, self-enriching ambitions, and strange aspirations and ideas about life in general, and the kingdom of God in particular. It is not uncommon to find that they claim all the women and even little girls in their churches or communes for themselves, practice incredible violence, and secretly abuse harmful substances such as prescription and other drugs. 

All controlling cults and sects deceive their members to believe that they are ‘lost’ and ‘backslidden’ as soon as they leave that church or commune; losing the so-called ‘protection’ or ‘cover’ of its leadership, etc., (Mt. 7:13-14; 21-28.)  [Jesus Himself is the Only real Cover or Protection of all His sincerely and personally, Scripturally born again disciples.]  So, fear is the power by which they bind spiritually blind people to their grave deceptions.  Their ultimate goal, of course, is to align themselves with god; calling themselves “christs, gods, and angels;” taking the place of Bible truth, the Lord Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit in the hearts, minds, and lives of the people, (Acts 10:25-26; Heb. 1:1-14.)  

All cults and sects are into mind control.  Remember, as soon as we choose to accept or believe a lie, a stronghold of deception is erected in our minds to control our thoughts, beliefs, and actions, (2 Cor. 10:4;11-18; Gal. 3:1-5.)  For instance, the Calvinist Dutch Reformed Church, as all other cults, make their members believe they are part of a ‘divinely elected or chosen nation and church,’ and even the lost tribe of Israel.’  Thus, they are ‘eternally saved’ by their church membership and church sacraments.  While everyone else is destined for destruction, they, as all sects and cults, allegedly have the only way of salvation, because they are the only ‘true church’ - even the only “end-time remnant church” as in Seventh Day Adventism and the Jehovah’s Witness society.

 

From studying the various doctrines of many sects and cults, I have identified the following similarities between them

· Leaders who pose in masonic stances on photos and paintings to distribute their teachings, music albums, and books — and give masonic signs during singing and preaching.  Those, such as Hall Lindsey and Tim Lahaye of ‘Rapture-Left-Behind’ fame, openly minister under the satanic Jewish star, Knights Templar Cross and Crown, and other satanic banners.  Sooner or later, most Christian leaders proudly display the true spirit behind them.  Some may hide their masonic affiliation for years, but, unless specifically prohibited by the Illuminati, famous leaders give their masonic signs to show who actually brought them thus far.  We must never fool ourselves to think masonic and other Satanic signs can be “accidental” or “innocent.”

Above from left:  Pope Benedict giving the Illuminati all-seeing-eye of Lucifer sign.  Protestant church father John Calvin gave his masonic sign.  Bible translator John Wycliffe and Martin Luther also declared they belong to Lucifer the devil, whom all masonic orders worship. 

These Protestant church fathers also declared, “It seems impossible that we should obtain the reward of Heaven without the help of Mary. There is no sex or age, no rank or position of anyone in the whole human race, which has no need to call for the help of the Holy Virgin.”  

John Wesley, Anglican/Methodist Reformer, Calvin’s right hand in Scotland, also “affirmed the perpetual virginity of Mary, the Mother of God.”  Thus, one still finds the Roman Catholic “Madonna and child with a votive candle rack and prie-dieu in Methodist Churches.”  

Bible truth: 1 Tim. 2:5, “There is Only One God and One Mediator between God and men (Jn. 3:16) the Man Christ Jesus, Who gave Himself a ransom for all… [or every single believer who seeks and follows Him above all else.]”

If these superrich, famous masonic leaders do not show their allegiance to Satan, it would be impossible for them to function in such lofty positions in the world. Often, as in the case of cult leaders like Jim Jones and David Koresh, one cannot find masonic evidence against them because, to hide some hidden agenda, it suits the Illuminati to protect their masonic memberships.  However, as with all Satanists in Christian cloaks, we can be certain it was not Jesus Who catapulted them to fame and fortune through their mega Scriptural falsehoods, unprecedented extortion, and church corruptionDidn’t Jesus warn that “the world will hate and persecute true disciples just as it hated and persecuted Him?” And where even “two or three are gathered together in His Name, there He is in the midst of them?”      

 

· Charismatic, well-rehearsed leaders, supported and upheld by the ruling ‘eldership’ or hierarchical clergy of a church organization, who place themselves above reproach and personal accountability, mostly without their members’ knowledge of what they are actually teaching and doing, (1 Pet. 3:15; Heb. 13:17b.)  These so-called leaders assume so-called “super anointed” positions that make them “masters” who “lord over the flock,” (1 Jn. 2:27; 1 Pt. 5:3.) 

· Leaders, who do not abide by Jesus’ New Testament/Covenant Moral Law of Love and it’s many Moral preceptsYet, they demand unquestionable church loyalty and obedience to certain parts of the Old Testament’s Ceremonial law and to themselves. 

·  Leaders, who place personal Scriptural interpretation, unscriptural visions, prophecy, and their own ‘spoken word’ above the written Word of God and the Biblical leading of the Holy Spirit. 

· Leaders, who absorb unscriptural “authority” by not practicing or teaching mutual submission in everything true and Godly, (Gal. 5:21.) 

· Leaders, who lack Scriptural impartiality, spiritual discernment, and a love of real Scriptural Truth, (1 Jn. 1:1-4; 2 Ths. 2:10.) 

· Leaders, who bring, disseminate, and condone prophesies and teachings that do not fit into the context and chronological order of Scriptural truth, (1 Cor. 14:29!)   E.g., They dreadfully blend and confuse the two different Testaments or Covenants in the Bible

· Leaders, who build ‘god’s Kingdom-Now’ churches while ignoring or demeaning the True Spiritual Kingdom of Christ in the “hearts” of all true believers; the true temple of the indwelling Holy Spirit,  (Jn. 18:36; 1 Cor. 6:15-20.) 

· Leaders, who fix all attention on themselves and their church views and doctrines by abusing the truth of Scripture.  True leaders will focus all the attention on Christ Jesus according to the true contextual Truth of the Real Bible, (Jn. 16:13-14.) This is not to say that leaders cannot teach by example from their own life-experiences as well — which excludes self-conceited boasting, of course,  (2 Cor. 22:29.)  Here we can definitely include “god-fathers and god-mothers” of traditional sects like Catholicism, Calvinism, Lutherism, and all their many cultic divisions or denominations.  Such leaders even write their own Bibles, and call their churches by their own names.  I.e., the Oral Roberts University, Jimmy Swaggart Ministries; Jehovah’s Witnesses Watchtower, Seventh Day Adventist Clear Water bible, Joyce Meyer Everyday Life (red-letter) bible, Kenneth Copeland Reference Edition bible, etcetera.  (Only Jesus’ Words used to be in red letters in the Bible, now Meyer and her counterparts’ words are too!)      

· Leaders, who focus on one particular doctrine, (child and other sprinkling-baptism, Sabbatarianism, the so-called “Jewish” Names of
Jehovah or Jeshua
; tithing, the spoken word or Rhema, signs and miracles, prosperity, the gift of tongues, Mary, etcetera,) instead of seeking and preaching the entire truth of the Bible to “rightly divide the Word of truth,” (2 Tim. 2:15-16.) 

· Leaders who claim “extraordinary personal salvation.” They were “grabbed” and supernaturally saved by God, often without personally desiring and seeking salvation, and placed in leadership and other church positions without understanding and living even the basic truths of the Gospel of Christ.  Most supposedly “always belonged to God” and thus, were allegedly ‘saved’ without personally accepting Jesus as their Lord
