Beware of Scientology
it's in no way compatible with Christianity

Scientology, Clearwater, Florida

The seven-story Flag Building, also known as the "Super Power Building," will be the largest Scientology structure in the world when completed late 2008, and is expected to draw thousands more visiting believers to Clearwater, Fla.  It appears that Clearwater is to Scientologists what Salt Lake City is to Mormons, what Mecca is to Muslims.


March 2010: In Germany, Scientology Outrage Over a Critical Film

The movie tells the story of a young couple, Gine and Frank Reiner, who are taken into the religion through the manipulative tactics of Scientology recruiters. Eventually, the husband decides to leave the group, losing not only his wife in the process but also his young child and a big portion of his family's inheritance, which his wife has donated to the church. Bergengruen says the film is loosely based on the real-life experiences of a German man named Heiner von Rönn, a onetime member of the organization. He says the filmmakers conducted exhaustive research in order to portray the religion as realistically as possible, including interviewing various former Scientology members and even going undercover to find out more about how the group works.

You may be curious about Scientology because some of its members are famous celebrities; including John Travolta, Tom Cruise, Kirstie Alley, Mimi Rogers, and Anne Archer, Jenna Elfman, Isaac Hayes, and others. Before you really get interested --begin looking at Scientology as a cult with many wacky ideas. Scientology is itself a money-making Church that will ultimately lead you into believing satan's garden of Eden lie that you are a God yourself. This same lie is found in both New Age and Masonic dogmas. Also a root Scientology dogma about religion sounds much like it could have been written by Karl Marx. According to Scientology's secret cosmology, it must first free man from the aberration of religion to undo the political control implant.

Like most cults--reports of Scientology members attempting to silence those who speak out against them are legendary and alarming.  Many who disagree with Scientology have been reported to have been murdered by the cult.  Many others are believed to have been driven to suicide by this cult. Scientology reportedly thinks that anyone who discloses information to the authorities, speaks openly and truthfully about the cult to the media, family, or friends is some how a criminal. "...The other is to dispose of them quietly and without sorrow." -- L. Ron Hubbard, Science of Survival, Chapter 27

Islam, Scientology, and Mormonism have similar beginnings.

All are based on the rantings and ravings of a single individual. There is quite a bit of evidence that L. Ron Hubbard was a megalomaniac, driven by greed, who was incapable of telling the truth.

Scientology is comprised exclusively of the teachings of one man: Lafayette Ron Hubbard (aka: L. Ron Hubbard). Hubbard's theories, assumptions, and techniques for practical applications that make up the rituals of Scientology, are sometimes called the “Spiritual Technology,” or simply “the Tech.” L. Ron Hubbard lived between 1911 and 1986. He was a very successful author, having published hundreds of novels, novelettes and short stories; most dealt with science fiction. Scientology was built by this one man (Hubbard). L. Ron Hubbard had a great gift of boasting about his life. L. Ron Junior wrote this about his father's boasts: "I would say that 99 per cent of what my father has written about his own life is false." --- L. Ron Hubbard Jr. L. Ron Hubbard was a devout racist who wrote in praise of South African Apartheid. He was a crazed misogynist (woman hater) who insisted women were inferior intellectually.

It is very wrong for Scientologists to deceive Christians into thinking that scientology is in some way compatible with Christianity! Scientology is not connected to Christianity! In fact, Scientology teaches that Jesus Christ did not exist (RE: Hubbard's CL VIII tape). Hubbard ridiculed other religions, but the Church of Scientology had no qualms about adopting Christian trappings and traditions to establish its bona fides as a “real church.” The Scientology symbol is a modified Christian cross which has an obvious resemblance to the masonic Golden Dawn's Rose Cross. To a Scientologist the man on the Christian Cross is not Christ! There was no Christ to L. Ron Hubbard. But the man on the Scientology cross is shown as "Everyman" to them.  For many years, Scientology staff wore clerical collars; in the spring of 2000 the Church of Scientology also began promoting regular Sunday services.

It is a well documented fact that the religion of Hubbard was Satanism. Hubbard's mentor was, in fact, the infamous English black magician Aleister Crowley. Hubbard reportedly discovered Crowley's works as a teenager on a trip to the Library of Congress with his mother.

Thereafter, Hunnard was fascinated by Crowley's "Magick," and Crowley became Hubbard's mentor, a relationship that would last until Crowley's death in 1947. In one of his later lectures, Hubbard would refer to Crowley as "my good friend." [Miller, p. 135]

L. Ron Hubbard established the Church of Scientology (CoS) in 1954 against the following backdrop:

He had dropped out of college with failing grades. Although he would later claim a distinguished wartime naval career, Hubbard in fact never saw combat and left the US Navy petitioning the Veterans Administration for psychiatric care.  Two bigamous marriages failed. He found success writing pulp/science fiction, but Hubbard declared in the late 1940s: “Writing for a penny a word is ridiculous. If a man really wants to make a million dollars, the best way would be to start his own religion.

Hubbard took up ritual magic, the occult and hypnosis, giving demonstrations of hypnosis in 1948 and writing to his literary agent about a therapy system he was working on that had tremendous promotional and sales potential.  Piecing together hypnotic techniques, Freudian theories, Buddhist concepts and elements of other philosophies and practices, Hubbard came up with Dianetics.  He published the very dull and hard to read book; "Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health" in 1950.  In this book, Hubbard claims that his "modern science of mental health" will cure everything from schizophrenia to arthritis; claims for which he presents no credible evidence.

A false prophet always preaches false nonsensical things...
Hubbard suggests in his "History of Man" that many of our problems may be traced to former lives.  Smoking tobacco results from smokers dramatizing volcanoes they saw in previous lives he says.  Psoriasis is an engram received from when an animal ate you; the psoriasis resembles the digestive fluids of the animal that ate you.  Vegetarians got tired of being eaten by animals in former lives.  Fear of falling can be traced to being a sloth and falling out of trees.

Hubbard's "History of Man" also teaches us that the Piltdown Man was part of the evolutionary chain for man.  Hubbard called it man's first real manhood.  Hubbard had already published his statements about the Piltdown man prior to the Piltdown skull having been declared a hoax in 1953.  Rather than retract the statements for this new religion of Scientology, since the History of Man forms a part of its scripture, Hubbard simply ignored it and never spoke of the evolution of the Piltdown Man again.

Note: Christian Scripture is adamant that there is no reincarnation... We die once.

Every Solution except Eternal Salvation:

Scientology appeals to people by offering them a grand game; a unique and comprehensive self-improvement system; a solution for almost every problem (many people come to Scientology when their lives are in crisis); and a welcoming group focused on major societal issues such as drug abuse, mental health, education, spirituality and morality.  

The fact of the matter is this.  Like the Jehovah Witness "cult", Scientology is a pyramid scheme.  Those at the top make a lot of money and would defend at all costs what they are doing.  And, both make huge amounts of money via selling printed materials, and recordings.  It gets even more lucrative when deceived gullible adherents give them huge grants.

A Former member says:

WHAT YOU have to remember is that while these people may be good people, they will lie to you about everything," says one former Scientologist, who was involved in the organization for four years in the early 1980s. "It is okay to lie in Scientology, in fact these people really believe what they are saying is true. That is the nature of a cult."   "Scientology is based on lies, you can never trust what they are saying," he reiterates.

After joining the Church of Scientology, one meets with increasing demands for money, time and recruiting others. Those who resist these demands bolt, usually quickly. Those who remain go step-by-step into agreement with indoctrination, all the while believing that they are becoming more aware and self determined.

Scientology proposes that in its “native state” the spirit/thetan is immortal and god-like and possesses the potentiality of knowing everything, but that in present time its true capabilities have been lost and forgotten. As an immortal entity, the spirit/thetan lives on after body death and is born into a new physical body, again and again, lifetime after lifetime, in an endless cycle of birth and death. As a result of traumatic incidents extending back from the present life through a long series of “past lifetimes” hidden from conscious memory, the spirit/thetan has become trapped in the physical body and the physical/MEST universe.

Islam, Scientology, Mormonisn and Jehovah Witnesses all reject the Gospel of Jesus -- and therefore these push their members away from the true road to salvation. Jews also reject this.  But as Paul says--Jews have been supernaturally blinded.

Mormons think Adam is God, and have corrupted and changed the Gospel (and history) of Jesus in defiance of Paul's warning. Jehovah Witnesses and Islam reject Jesus and the redemption He offers completely. Masonry not only rejects Jesus as the way to salvation --Masons mistakenly or purposely treat all religions as equal-- and are aligned with "Lucifer their light bearer".

Stressed by Scientology

According to The Washington Post, Scientology recruiters have been offering stress exams and a Scientology pitch on a DC sidewalk:

The sign advertising "Free Stress Test" beckoned Marian Prescott as she crossed Farragut Square, and she found herself settling into a chair beneath a yellow tent and taking hold of two metal poles hooked up to a device that the tester said could detect psychic strain.

Then Turrisi handed Prescott a paperback book, "Dianetics" by Church of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard, the back of which promised advice for living without "insecurity, negative thoughts, depression and irrational behavior." All Prescott needed to own this trove of wisdom was to fork over the "suggested" donation of $8.

And so the bait and switch begins

The “free stress test” is the hook to get them to purchase (excuse me – it’s just a “suggested” donation) the Scientology book. The book will suggest Scientology training courses. These are free until it is revealed you need more advanced courses that have to be paid for.

Row over Scientology video
By John Sweeney
BBC News

Footage of John Sweeney has been posted on YouTube

Panorama's editor
The battleground is YouTube and Scientology's weapon is a clip of me losing it in the "Mind Control" section of a gruesome exhibition.
Scientology has fought many battles to keep its secrets off the web, now they are using it to attack my investigation into them.

Scientology has prepared an attack video, and they have shown the Scientology v Sweeney shouting match to anyone who would watch it.

There is talk of 100,000 copies being released.

Family 'disconnects'

Scientology works. That is the message from celebs like John Travolta and Tom Cruise - who is, some say, keen on recruiting new Hollywood arrivals David and Victoria Beckham to what he calls his religion.

Others back the Church in various ways: Chief Superintendent Kevin Hurley of the City of London police helped open a new £20 million Scientology centre in London, and the authorities in the City of London have granted it cut-price rates.

If you are interested in becoming a TV journalist, it is a fine example of how not to do it. I look like an exploding tomato and shout like a jet engine ... it makes me cringe

But start asking questions and you see a different face of Scientology.

While making our BBC Panorama film "Scientology and Me" I have been shouted at, spied on, had my hotel invaded at midnight, denounced as a "bigot" by star Scientologists and been chased round the streets of Los Angeles by sinister strangers.

Back in Britain strangers have called on my neighbors, my mother-in-law's house and someone spied on my wedding and fled the moment he was challenged.

I have met mothers who say they have suffered Scientology "disconnects" - meaning that their children have cut them completely out of their life so that they can spend more time with an organization which a judge in 1984 characterized as "corrupt, sinister and dangerous".

Psychiatry battle

Scientology has two faces - nice and smiley, and sinister and dark. If you do not believe me, go and see their exhibition in Los Angeles, Psychiatry: Industry of Death. You enter through a door that is a mock-up of a torture chamber.

Scientologists want "the global obliteration" of psychiatrists, who they say were to blame for the rise of Nazi Germany.

To prove their point, they showed me hideous images of people having needles stuffed in their eyeballs, of patients undergoing electric shocks and having their brains operated on.

Sickening, nasty and wholly unconvincing - modern psychiatry, for all its faults, is not Nazi and to press the point in the way that Scientology does devalues the horror of the Holocaust.

Ironically or not, it was in the "Mind Control" section of the exhibition that I lost it.

'Exploding tomato'

As often in life, I snapped over something completely different and quite trivial.

Top Scientologist Tommy "Don't mention the word cult" Davis had been goading me all week, and on the seventh day I fell into his elephant trap. He shouted at me and I shouted back, louder.

L Ron Hubbard wrote the founding texts of Scientology

If you are interested in becoming a TV journalist, it is a fine example of how not to do it. I look like an exploding tomato and shout like a jet engine and every time I see it makes me cringe.

I apologized almost immediately, Tommy carried on as if nothing had happened but meanwhile Scientology had rushed off copies of me losing it to my boss, my boss's boss and my boss's boss's boss, the Director-General of the BBC.

I lost my voice, but not my mind.

This is the context Scientology will not tell you about. I have met too many good people who say Scientology was founded by a liar, L Ron Hubbard; that it attacks its critics without mercy; and the celebrities who endorse it have not the foggiest idea what it is really like.

Take "Rosemary", who is an ordinary mum and lives in England. She had two children and one died. Her surviving daughter was also her best friend. Then her daughter joined Scientology and her mother saw less and less of her.

Almost two years ago she received a "disconnect" - a letter cutting her mother out of her life totally.

Rosemary received no Christmas cards, no birthday cards, no Mother's Day cards.

Rosemary said Scientology was a cult. It was one of the most moving and shocking interviews I have ever done.

Out of the blue, three hours after we left, her daughter came round for the first time in almost two years seeking a reconciliation. The next day she begged her mum not to use the interview. So we won't.

Pay as you go

In Florida I met Mike Henderson, who with his wife Donna Shannon, spent $1m over three decades on Scientology's path to superhuman powers. When the couple left, they were disconnected from 20-odd family members left inside Scientology.

Mike's father - also disconnected - is dying, but five out of his six children will not speak to him because they are still inside Scientology.

John Sweeney spent many weeks investigating Scientology

After a long day with Mike and Donna we went back to our hotel at midnight, only to find Tommy Davis waiting in the lobby with his own black-clad Scientology cameraman.

He harangued me for talking to the heretics. I told him that Scientology had been spying on the BBC and that was creepy.

Germany imposes ban on Tom Cruise
Tom Cruise
Stauffenberg's son has objected to Cruise playing his father
Germany has banned the makers of Tom Cruise's new movie from filming at military sites in the country because the actor is a Scientologist.

The German defence ministry said Cruise has "publicly professed to being a member of the Scientology cult".

Scientology masquerades as a religion to make money, Germany said, but leaders of the church reject this.

Cruise's producing partner Paula Wagner said the star's own convictions had no relation to the film's content.

"Personal beliefs have absolutely no bearing on the movie's plot or themes," she said.

'Heroic and principled'

Scientology has been monitored in Germany in the belief that its activities are "directed against the free democratic order" in the country.

Its status there as a commercial enterprise has prompted repeated protests from the organisation.

Cruise will play Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg in Valkyrie, leader of the 1944 plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler using a bomb hidden in a briefcase, scheduled for release next year.

German defence ministry spokesman Harald Kammerbauer said that Germany's military "has a special interest in the serious and authentic portrayal of the events of July 20, 1944 and Stauffenberg's person".

Stauffenberg's son Berthold told the Sueddeutsche Zeitung newspaper earlier this week that he objected to Cruise taking the role because of his involvement with Scientology.

"He should keep his hands off my father," Mr von Stauffenberg said.

Mr Kammerbauer, meanwhile, said that official requests for filming in the country had yet to be received.

One Must be a Christian to be Saved!

References for this is found in John 14:6; Acts 4:12, and 26:28; 1 Peter 4:16. One cannot be a Christian without verbally confessing the deity of Jesus the Christ. One cannot even pray to God, let alone have sins remitted by Him, without approaching Him through Jesus (John 14:6 and 13, 15:16; 16:23-24; Romans 5:2, and Ephesians 2:18).

I know Muslims and Mormons, Christian Scientists, Jehovah Witnesses, Unitarians, Scientologists, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, Seventh Day Adventists -and many others - will not want to hear this, but the Bible declares that Jesus was the FINAL revelation of God to man (Hebrews 1:1-3). There have been no others.
