Question 335

By: Robert Serreyn

Question? What do you know about Scientology?


Scientology is a CULT religious organization that was started in 1954 by an American Sci-Fi author L. Ron Hubbard ( 1911 – 1986).

L Ron Hubbard embodied the beliefs of his religion through a book and program called DIANETICS.

Years ago I happen to come into the possession of what I call a insider book on Scientology. I TRIED to read this book in hopes to get a better understanding of what the cult believes and teaches to only AFTER a few pages to throw the book away in the trash from the utter insane thought proccess and belief system of this twisted religion, how anybody can accept the BIZARRE PRACTICES and TEACHINGS of this cult as spiritual truth I will never know.

As stated above Scientology EMPLOYS BIZARRE teachings and practices such as…

– E – Meter: This is a device that is used to display and or record the Electrodermal Activity (EDA) of a human being.

Auditing: This is a practice wherein an auditor (a person who has been determined to be cleared) asks a question of another individual known as PRECLEAR and then acknowledges their answer in a non- judgemental way.

Bridging: Moving from one plateau of existence to another higher plateau, this terminology which L. Ron Hubbard introduced in the back of his book titled Dianetics in 1950 was the foundation and basis for the development of the Standard Operating Procedure for what became known as THETA CLEARING or the state of clear.

The ONE GOAL of all practitoners of Scientology is TO STRIVE to reach on their way up the bridge (state of clear) to Total Freedom.

The State of Clear is reached when a person BECOMES FREE of the influences of Engrams.

Engrames are unwanted emotions or painful traumas that happened in the past which are not readily available by the conscious mind but hidden in the memory of the partially or fully unconscious mind of the individual.

In Conclusion:

As with ALL CULTS and false religions they all have one thing in common they ALL DENY Jesus is God in the Flesh and that he alone died to pay for the sins of mankind.

The best defense against being decieved by a cult or false doctrine is to study the Word of God and attend a Good Bible Teaching Church if available, or find one online to learn from.

(2 Timothy 2:15) Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

(Hebrews 10:25) Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

The MOST IMPORTANT thing to know IS Jesus Christ as savior, just simply believe that Jesus Christ went to the cross and DIED and shed his blood, was BURIED and three days later RESURRECTED from the dead to pay for your sins.

-Christ DIED for you – Romans 5:8

-Christ PAID your sins in full – 2 Corinthians 5:21,1 Peter 2:24

-BELIEVE (Trust In Completely) in Christ ALONE as the complete payment of sin for salvation – John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:8,9

“For the wages(payment) of sin is death (eternal torment in hell); but the GIFT(salvation) of God is eternal life THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord”. Romans 6:23
