What Makes One Join A Cult
Today, the world of the cults is more and more expanding. There are so many people who turned into life gurus or people who are promoting their cultic philosophy in order to entice people to join their group. Do you ever wonder why these groups has become very successful in what they do? This article will discuss the reason why cults come very interesting for some to join. These suggestions may also be warning signs to examine whether you, the reader can be vulnerable into being enticed too.
Cults are very wise in their recruitment effort. Cults are groups that attack the principle and beliefs in the biblical effort. And so they make their recruitment efforts in the personal lives of people.
These cults are very wise in enticing to recruit people. They target those who have less or just have basic knowledge of the Bible. They invite these people to a “Bible Study.” What happens in this “Bible Study” is that they will distort what is in the Bible to get the teachings and principles into their favour. They do this in order to promote their religious leader.
The fact that a person has no or less knowledge on the Bible, then these cultists will make sure to entice them to the principles of their cults. When a cultist discovers that you have enough and you are a firm Christian then this cultist will not consider you as part of its recruitment effort.
Life transitions make a potential time for cults to recruit the people who are experiencing this. Divorce, marriage, a new job, a death in the family, attending college for the first time are some of the big life transitions that may make us feel confused. At this point in time, we will feel so unstable in life and that we will need to resort to something that will make it stable somehow. In our life transitions also, we tend to be more vulnerable. And so, the cultist takes this opportunity to focus in the personal lives of these individuals to entice to join the cult.
Since a person is very vulnerable at this struggling time, the cultist makes a move to entice this person. Once the cultist sees that the person becomes interested and dependent on his counsel, then the cultist takes this opportunity to involve one to the cult. What cultist will do the cult mentality that the person has no opportunity to react or question because the cultist keeps him or her busy doing the given cult duties.
