“It’s hard to believe, but in America alone, there may be as many as 5,000 religious groups preying upon the weak and vulnerable, and all in the name of God. Dr. Phil’s guests have warnings for you and your children.” (Dr. Phil Website – Mind Control Episode)
I had a chance to catch a Dr. Phil episode concerning an issue that I have been discussing lately – with Heather and Buffy – concerning Religious Indoctrination and Mind Control.
The show featured a person from House of Yahweh called Yisrael Hawkins and his ‘cult’ like church thing he is running. What was odd was this guy was a Messianic – who took everything literally in the OT – mixed with his warped version of Christianity…when two topics I have been discussing become one – yikes.
Heather and Buffy, I wrote this blog to give you something to look at – maybe even watch some of the stuff from the show that might speak to your current situations. Here are a few links:
(a) Dr. Phil Episode: Mind Control
(b) Resources: Rick. A. Ross Institute (deals with cults and controversial groups)
(c) Information: Mind Control Warning Signs
I found some of the stuff kind of interesting to take in – and I found it very odd that 2 subjects I have been discussing actually were found in a single cult (House of Yahweh). It caused in me some certain pause that ideas like Messiah-ism and End-time-ism can ‘go horribly wrong’.
