A CULT-HUNTER LOOKS AT CHRISTIANITY
1- When you enter some Catholic churches, you are confronted by a graphic
representation of Jesus, nailed to a cross, bleeding, suffering, and then
you are told that He went to this death of His own free will!
You read about Saints that whipped themselves; that wore hair shirts to
abuse their bodies. You even see, in this modern age, the Penitentes
of Mexico and New Mexico who continue this practice, even going so far as
to crucify themselves, men and women!
People who walk to a "holy" shrine on their knees, doing possible permanent
damage to themselves, are lauded for having performed a "holy" act!
Children are beaten, starved, tortured and otherwise seriously harmed by
members of this cult following the Biblical admonition "Speare the rod and
spoil the child." There are also innumerable cases of the denial of blood
transfusions, denial of public education, and denial of * any * modern
medical treatment, all in the name of this cult's beliefs.
Does Christianity preach a form of sado-masochism? If it does, it is a
dangerous cult indeed!
2- This ritual of "Holy Communion" or the "Lord's Supper" has some overtones
that bother any right-thinking person. After all, the worshippers are told
that they are eating the "Body and Blood of our Saviour, Jesus Christ!"
Can it be very far from * ritual * cannibalism to * real * cannibalism?
This cult seems more and more dangerous!
3- The pre-occupation of some sects of Christianity with "demons" and "devils"
and "evil spirits" that, in their minds, seem to inhabit the whole
Universe, ready at the slightest opportunity to "possess" the bodies and
minds of humans, reeks of Diabolism! The more extreme sects even seem to
believe that this "Devil" is some sort of anti-God that has * all * power
over the world.
Can it be a very great step from being so preoccupied with devils to the
actual worship of them? One should worry about this!
4- One sect of Christianity, the Roman Catholic Church, actually LOCKS UP
young girls (and older women) and forbids them contact with the world,
forbids them marriage, and tells them it is a "sin" to think of men in
a sexual manner, and that they will "burn in 'hell' " if they do so. Such
single-sex, enforced groupings of people (similar to secular prisons) are
always hotbeds of deviant behaviour.
The same sect forbids marriage to its priests, and thereby perhaps
encourages the many, many DOCUMENTED cases of its priests molesting young
One of its major past leaders (called "Apostles"), Saul of Tarsus, aka
"Saint Paul," was known for his hatred of women, and he seems to be the
major theoretician of many of the "Fundamentalist" sects of the cult.
Can it be that Christianity actually * encourages * homosexuality, while
preaching the opposite?
5- One sect, the "Jehovah's Witnesses," refuses allegiance to their country!
They will not salute the flag, nor will they serve in the Armed Forces!
The "Social Gospel," a take-from-the-rich propaganda pitch, is preached all
over Third World nations, subverting their governments!
Can it be that Christianity encourages the "One World" viewpoint of certain
radical political groups?
6- The sexual behaviour of its leaders has been well documented, from "Popes"
(the leader of the Roman Catholic sect) to Aimee Semple Macpherson, to
Jimmy Swaggert. One wonders about such leaders being placed in positions
of command over our young people.
How many innocents have been defiled by such persons? One wonders!
7- In the Middle Ages, priests actually said "Masses" to impose death spells
on humans. Is such ritual being practiced today? We will probably never
know, because secrecy in such groups would be assumed as * very * tight.
As so many law-enforcement officers seem to be Christian, and many of
the European governments are enthralled by this cult, we will probably
* never * be able to find out the truth of this.
8- At every Christian service, donations from the membership is encouraged,
and, as most such donations are done publically, "peer-pressure" to give
large amounts of money is very high, and a feeling of guilt over * not *
contributing could lead to psychotic episodes!
The cult's attitude towards sexual feelings, that even * looking * at
a person with even the tiniest feeling of "lust" is a "sin," is so rigid
as to exclude at least 99 percent of the World's population from "Heaven"
and thereby lead to irreconcilable guilt feelings on the part of the
Could it be that many of the modern world's psychiatric problems can be
traced to the beliefs of this cult?
9- The intolerant behaviour of Christianity is also well-documented in
history, with its pogroms of Jews, burning of witches, Crusades against
Islam, culture destruction and outright genocide in the Pacific islands
and Central and South America, and hatred of anything that is not
"Christian." This has even extended to disruption of non-Christian
religious services, and violent behaviour that is touted as simple "civil
Can such past behaviour repeat itself? History shows it does.
10- Proselytization, or the "conversion" of new members to the cult, is
carried on in any number of ways, both with subtle blandishments and
by outright fear and threats. To watch and listen to some street-preachers
is an education in the use of fear-inducing technique, and also of
individual and mass hysteria similar to that induced by Adolf Hitler and
Why do these preachers do their best to induce such mass hysteria? One
could ask the same question about Hitler and Goebells, and maybe get the
If your child, or a member of your family, is involved with this
cult, * please * seek help NOW!

the other cult-hunters and watchers out there, for their good and
constant demonstrations of the techniques used in this article.
