In 1992 a Pentecostal Christian man called Jason Scott was abducted from his front porch, his hands cuffed behind his back, his mouth duct-taped, his body thrown into the back of a van to be then be driven to a remote location where he was isolated for five days and subjected to physical and psychological abuse to make him change his religious beliefs. Those responsible for this action were fined $1,875,000 for participating in a crime which a jury described as "beyond all possible bounds of decency and to be regarded as atrocious and utterly intolerable in a civil community".
Who were these kidnappers? Who were these abusers? Muslim fundmentalists? People from a crazy cult? A communist government re-education squad? No. These were the actions of a tax-exempt organisation in the United States of America dedicated to 'reprogramming' members of alleged 'cults', the so-called Cult Awareness Network (CAN). What was their justification for viciously violating human rights and placing themselves above the law? That Jason Scott was 'brainwashed' and needed 'deprogramming'. And was this some fringe "anti-cult" group? No, it was mainstream and highly respected cult-exiting organisation which had the backing of the secular establishment ... until what they were really doing was made public. Unfortunately, Jason Scott is not a solitary case. The kidnapping and human-rights abuses continue against not only those who obviously qualify as belonging to harmful cults but against anyone who is religious, including a traditional Pentecostal Christian. As we shall see, a deliberate campaign has been waged by mostly secularists who wish to reprogam society into associating all 'religion' with 'cult', 'something scary', 'something destructive', 'something abusive' and 'mental illness' just as they did in the former Soviet Union, imprisoning religious dissidents in psychiatric institutions. Today's dissidents in the West are those who don't support the politically correct 'New World Order' or what some are calling the cult of 'fascist liberalism'
Professor James R. Lewis, noted author of many scholarly books including The Oxford Handbook of New Religious Movements (OUP, 2003), Legitimating New Religions (2003), Odd Gods: New Religions and the Cult Controversy (2001), and Controversial New Religions (OUP, 2004), is director of the Association of World Academics for Religious Education, and lecturer in Religious Studies at the University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point and Adjunct Professor of Philosophy at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee (see Wikipedia article), observes:
"...empirical studies by mainstream social scientists have failed to discover a special form of social influence corresponding with 'cultic brainwashing', professional organizations including the APA and the ASA have rejected the notion from mainstream social science".
The organization responsible for Jason Scott's kidnapping and violent abuse (CAN) was rightly prosecuted, found guilty and went bankrupt. This organization was every bit as 'cultic' as the alleged cultism of the groups it targeted - if not far worse in most cases. Unfortunately, this is not the only 'anti-cult' organization - there are others who employ the same methods and endorse the same secular philosophy which have gained a high media profile with accompanying 'respectability' such as the Rick Ross Institute. In much the same way as anti-communists were branded as 'fascist' by communists in the last century (whether they were actual fascists, conservatives, liberals or social democrats), so the word 'cult' has assumed an equally nebulous currency in our modern political-correct 'Newspeak' in bracketing everyone and everything that is not towing the line of the political élite. This is, moreover, deliberate, playing on public fears and insecurities in much the same way as the nazis did in the 1930's.
In recent times we have been labelled a 'destructive cult' by such unscrupulous organisations as were responsible for Jason Scott's kidnapping and 'anti-cultic' brainwashing. (Mind you most of the same people consider all of Judaism and Christianity as "destructive cults" too though they rarely say so openly). The time will come when all believers who do not fall into line with the New World Order will receive a similar inflammatory label - and others - unless, of course, these organizations are exposed. What is interesting, predictable and hardly surprising is that many websites who do run such exposés are quietly disappearing from the internet. They're still to be found on robot archives though for how long they will be left untouched is hard to say. They can be difficult to access. One such site, run by Scientologists who, though having some dubious behaviours and belief system, is one of the best exposés on these counter-cult organisations and is worth studying (see Religious Freedom Watch robot archive). They know, though, that just the stigma of 'cult' - however false - is enough to tarnish a reputation and make people hesitate even if the truth does eventually come out. We have been put "through the process" - so will everyone else who does not support or remain silent about the NWO in due course.
This Cult Accusation section is not so much about us but about the shadowy people who condemn religious organisations that do not tow the NWO line and how they operate. We have had to dig into robot archives to find and preserve this material. We have done this partly to defend and vindicate ourselves but also to provide support for those undergoing similar attempts to blacken them and to inform the general public of the brainwashing that is being done by those - and the shadowy forces that direct or support them indirectly - who wish to turn the world into a giant slave society founded on antichristian occultic ideals. For the sake of the elect temporarily deceived by all the spin out there, this section has been made.
A final thought. Things are not always what they seem. Even some of the real "dangerous cults" - the ones we have good grounds to suspect and shun (such as those who advocate and occasionally practice mass suicide or murder) may turn out to be - or have been - something else, such is the misinformation in the media these days. Anson Shupe, professor of Sociology at Indiana-Purdue, author and noted expert specializing in the study of religious movements (see the paper he co-authored with Susan Darnell, CAN, We Hardly Knew Ye: Sex, Drugs, Deprogrammers’ Kickbacks, and Corporate Crime in the (old) Cult Awareness Network
), said this:
"Research, not prejudice, indicates that most persons at Jonestown, Waco, and those chalets in Switzerland died by foul play...We need to debunk the cult-suicide mythology, or else it will be open season on anyone who dares dream openly of a millennium".
With the exception of Preterists, Catholics and a few others, Bible-believing Christians await the Millennium and seek to live the lifestyle we believe will characterise it. Of course, we are not trying to ushher it in - at least not members of NCCG - by our own works. We believe this will be an independent work of the Creator and that all we are required to do is simply continue living the way we always have done until the emerging world dictatorship is plainly visible for all to see and it's time to withdraw for a few years while the end-time holocaust gets under way. If you believe in the Millennium then, as Shupe warns, you too will at some point become targets of the "deprogrammers".
