Trapped in the walls of a church can lead to tragedy. The unhealthy anti-social dynamics taught drives the congregants to cultist’s behavior.
“...because [by choice] they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator…” (Romans 1:25).
I’ve seen stories reported in the media that involved children and adults being held in basements, houses, cells, and poverty stricken neighborhoods for years. Some children and adults never leave the confinement of their captivity while others escape.
The vulnerable children and adults’ illiteracy and abnormal conditions make them vulnerable to vicious leaders, who have lead many to their demise.
The characteristic and behavior of these leaders is a spin-off of negative childhood experiences that they have shoved in the pit of their psyche, hidden trues. They claim to accept Christ in their heart, but they make it an illusion and not a personal experience.
One of the largest massacre happened November 1978, within the Jim Jones cult, which the followers were trapped and isolated as they trusted the creature over the creator. This led to a collective demise of 918 people and 304 were children.
If some of his followers had knowledge that he was an anti-Christ, could they have avoided losing their lives?
There were red flags that suggested Jim Jones was not a follower of Christ. Throughout my research I didn’t read that he had a personal experience with God and was an advocate studier of the Bible. He had an interest in religious studies, but communism and socialism was his focus.
He preyed on disparity communities, the less fortunate, particularly African Americans, many whom were biblically illiterate.
“Do not rob the poor because he is poor [and defenseless],” (Proverbs 22:22). Yet that is what he did, neglected to provide the poor spiritual guidance toward God, which he had no interest. Instead he led them to worship him, which led to their demise.
“You shall have no other gods before Me,” (Exodus 20:3).
Church leaders today may not operate under communism and socialism. Hmm, could some leaders operate as capitalist that use semi-communist and socialist approach to control their congregants?
Some church leader’s priorities are money and control. These leaders hire board members that are like-minded and they exercise totalitarian control over the congregants, from money laundering, sex trafficking, molestation, rape, split families, manipulation, secret societies and the list continues.
Well, should I say it’s along the lines of initiating collectivism that’s slowly germinating to communism and socialism?
The tactics used to control the congregants are manipulation of words spoken in a spiritual tone such as, God showed me and told me to tell you...to be careful who you socialize or entertain, it might be a demon... remove yourself from folks who disagrees with your faith... God has sent me for you to believe in Him no one knows God like I do...
Jesus was criticized for associating with the sinner, (Mark 2:13-17). His response to His accusers was an insight to the believers that He expects us to reach outside the church walls and minister to the unbelievers, those who are spiritually sick.
These leaders redirect the exposure of true’s about their sinful behavior back to the sources leading the congregants to believe that person is being used by the devil.
On the other hand, there are liberal church leaders that include all people to be servants or people of God regardless of lifestyle. No repentance is required just come join and be a part of us.
Yet behind the scene these leaders practice the same mannerism as their opposing or traditional leaders, types and shadows of communism and socialism. Hmm!
Jesus instructed His disciples, “And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give,” (Matthew 10:7-8).
Jesus was an example of leadership, and Christian behavior. He laid down His life for the sins of this world, yet he is the least spoken of or respected today. Could this be the reason why the church world is in a state of demise?
Oh but wait, maybe not... because the Prophets spoke of this time, false teachers. But wait... they also said the love of sin will bring the church world to a state of demise. Hmm!
