The Heresy of Mind Control

Stephen Martin

Could you fall for mind control?
Suppose you move to a different area and are keeping your eyes open for a good group to belong to. You visit one such group where the people are very friendly, loving, and give you individual attention. The group has a variety of programs: a rehabilitation program for drug addicts, services, and nursing homes for the elderly, help for the poor, and free clinics. The leader inspires the disillusioned, the disenchanted, and those who have been rejected elsewhere. He is well-known and respected in the area, and the mayor gave him a position as director of the City Housing Authority. Would you join this group? If you answered "yes" to the first situation, you joined the church led by Jim Jones who led over 900 of his followers into a mass suicide murder.

"A must read perspective!"
Many are the books that focus on the theological distortions and/or aberrant practices of religious groups, but this book is different. It discusses and illustrates the dynamics of mind control found in totalitarian groups, including religions, terrorists, etc. A must read perspective! James Bjornstad, PhD, Professor of Philosophy, retired, Cedarville University.
