The allure and the power that cults produce comes from their adopting a degree of truth in their teachings. Truth is/has power. When it is co-opted by evil, it becomes blasphemous, diabolical and insidious.
In the heyday of the communist party, as it took over Russia and other countries, one of the key controlling methods was to induce in its followers a constant program of "self-criticism" and confession of "crimes" against "the Party". A ranking Party member was always installed, for instance in a business or institution . . . and one of their primary roles was to spy on the group's members and regularly conduct "self-criticism" sessions where the others were encouraged to stand before the group and publicly recount all of their "crimes" or infractions against the Party. Everyone within the group was also encouraged and rewarded for snitching on other members.
This is exactly the same procedure that the "Church of Skatology" uses to police its ranks. I very deliberately used certain language in my classic 1991 produced satire "T-Ray: "Regional Director for the NWO" main promo/bit to describe the coming totalitarian global system having studied and recognized this feature of mind/social control: "You need a personality program that encourages self-doubt, self-criticism and individual diminution; those hallmarks of the remade global citizen. . . ." (Can be heard at my Soundclick audio page).
Obummer is well-known for using this very same technique on his much commented on "apology tours" where he goes to other countries and stands before the U.N. apologizing ("self"-criticizing) for America's various historical "crimes" against the world and humanity. . . .
The thing is, it IS true that we are all criminals. The Skatologists have this general truth right. But it ends there. You see, as in all cults and Satanic cultic thinking . . . the crime is NOT against God (which is the ultimate truth) but against the "Church" . . . or against the "Church" founder . . . or against the cult or organization or Party . . . but NOT against God. The full truth is . . . that we are indeed criminals . . . sinners . . . all fallen and having missed the mark (as the Bible states) . . . but our crimes, our sins ARE AGAINST GOD! THAT is the big difference, and it makes all the difference in the world and in salvation to get this distinction correct!
Similarly . . . when you are "ex-communicated' from the L.D.S. Church . . . it is not because you sinned against God. . . . It is not because you have departed from Biblical teaching and from rejecting Jesus. It is because you have rejected the teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints! It is because you reject Joseph Smith (the cult founder)!
This instance of punishing "crimes" against the cult or party or cult founder (ie., L. Ron Hub--er, I mean "Hellzon Le Grubber", Joseph Smith, Joseph Stalin, Mao Tse Tung, Jim Jones etc.) is a hallmark of Satanic organization and one which is going to be in place soon on a global scale pertaining to the coming One World Government and Religion. . . . "Political Correctness" is the framework already underway to solidify the coming regime and we have been witnesses to countless examples the past couple of years of those who have committed "crimes" against the developing "global regime" where they have been publicly humiliated, convicted, demoted, and forced to give apologies and confession (ie., Paula Deen, various NFL football players, the Mozilla co-founder and on and on).
