5 Things EVERY Christian Should Know About Scientology

It's the sworn-by religion of megastar actor Tom Cruise, and has come under the microscope since allegations of physical abuse surfaced. 'Scientology' is shrouded in mystery and intrigue, and those at the centre of the cult-like religion, based on science fiction, are incredibly secretive in their dealings with the 'Church' of Scientology. But what is it all about? And what should Christians know about it? Well, former Scientologist Athena Dean Holtz at Crosswalk highlights 5 key things. 

1. You Cannot Be a Christian and Still Be a Scientologist.
"I wasn’t a Christian at that point in my life, but I remember them saying to other people that Scientology doesn’t keep you from your preferred religion, it simply enhances it. They said you can remain a Christian and be a Scientologist at the same time. The deeper in I got, I found this was a lie. It was propaganda they dished out to keep people from doing their homework and using any ounce of discernment before getting involved."

2. All Non-Scientologists are Regarded with Disdain.
"“WOG” is a term coined by Hubbard and used by Scientologists to refer to anyone who is not smart enough to be a Scientologist. In Dianetics and Scientology Technical Dictionary, Hubbard says, “Anynon-Scientologist is a ‘wog,’ someone who ‘isn’t even trying.’” This term dehumanizes anyone who is not a Scientologist and places them in an inferior class. Pride, and a judgmental and condescending attitude is formed in the elite core of “super humans” called Scientologists."

3. Scientologists Believe They Are Above the Law.
"I experienced this personally when I received death threats after leaving the “church” and voicing my antagonism towards their principles and agenda. Since the foundation of Scientology holds that anyone who is not one of “them” is racially inferior, this set the stage for Hubbard to dehumanize them in the minds of those who’ve swallowed the Scientology lie."

4. Celebrities are their Bait.
"When I worked on staff at the Celebrity Centre there was always a huge push to draw in celebrities, or “opinion leaders” as they were called, because they could draw so many more new recruits into the organization simply because anything they did was deemed “cool” by their followers and copied. The more a celebrity gets sucked in, the more dirt the church has on them from notes from counseling sessions. That is used as blackmail to keep them from ever becoming antagonistic towards the mission and goals of the “church."

5. Hubbard and Hitler Had a lot in Common.
"Lastly, the entire philosophy of Scientology is inspired by the unholy realm. The ultimate agenda of the church of Scientology is genocide. That may be difficult to believe, but consider this quote from an article entitled, “The Horrifying Real Secret of Scientology is Genocide.”1 “What the Church of Scientology does not want the public to know is its biggest secret: Scientologists consider that they are Homo Novis,a new and superior Master Race. The real secret about Scientology is its Master Race agenda that seeks nothing less than world conquest via ethnic cleansing and taking over the political, legal, educational, and mental health systems of the world.”"

"Having been deceived more than once by spiritually abusive and toxic cults, I can tell you the most powerful weapon against deception is warfare prayer against the strategies of the evil one that would keep your loved one ensnared."
