    Scientology Unmasked

    in Education

    SUPPORT OUR SPONSOR:  http://www.naturebox.com/thinkingatheist

    Created by the late science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology is a religion/cult which teaches that humans are actually immortal beings who, having forgotten their true nature, require intensive (and expensive) "auditing" techniques to rediscover their true, immortal selves.


    Reports and allegations have been made, by journalists, courts, and governmental bodies of several countries, that the Church of Scientology is an unscrupulous commercial enterprise that harasses its critics and brutally exploits its members.


    In this compelling episode, we explore Scientology's practices, and we hear from those who escaped its shadow.

    The Secrets of Scientology

    in Spirituality

    The media's fascination with Scientology is reminscent of the "rubber neck" mentality associated with a fatal accident on the freeway: no one wants to look for the longest time, but suddenly all the awful details are right there in front of you and you can't stop looking.  Space aliens, E-meters, strange military-like installations called Sea Org, wife try-outs for Tom Cruise...it's a bizarre reality for thousands of people and it's taken root in the very visible and very rich culture of Hollywood.  "In his introductory book Scientology: A New Slant on Life," L. Ron Hubbard, the Founder of the religion, writes:  'Scientology is the science of knowing how to know answers.'
    Scientology beliefs hold that Man is basically good and that his spiritual salvation depends upon himself, his relationships with his fellows and his attainment of brotherhood with the universe."  (scientology.org)
    Tonight, Dr. Walter Martin examines the cosmic and some believe, kooky, theology of Scientology, in the light of biblical truth.

    Enlightenment, Nirvana, and Scientology

    in Education

    Enlightenment: The "full comprehension of a situation".  It translates several Buddhist terms and concepts, most totably bodhi, kensho and satori.  Related terms from Asian religions are moksh (liberation) in Hinduism and Kevala Jnana in Jainism.  In Christianity, the word "enlightenment" is rarely used, except to refer to the Age of Enlightenment.
    Nirvana:  A transcendent state in which there is neither suffering, desire, nor sense of self, and the subject is released from the effects of karma and the cycle of death and rebirth. It represents the final goal of Buddhism.
    Scientology:  L. Ron Hubbard's successor of Dianetics. Its method of spiritual rehabilitation is auditing, in which practitioners re-experience painful or traumatic events in their past in order to free themselves of their limiting effects.  Auditing sessions are available to members on a fee-for-service basis, described as a “fixed donation.”   Scientology  is often characterized as a cult and it has faced harsh scrutiny for many of its practices which, critics contend, include brainwashing and routinely defrauding its members, and harassing its critics. Scientologists have argued that theirs is a genuine religious movement that has been misrepresented, maligned and persecuted.  Controversy has focused on Scientology’s belief that souls reincarnate and have lived on other planets before living on Earth, and that some of the related teachings are not revealed to practitioners until they have paid thousands of dollars to the Church of Scientology.  Scientologists believe that psychiatry is destructive.

    An insider view of Scientology

    in Religion

    When it comes to understanding cult-like religions, few stories are more riveting than from those who have left Scientology.
     
    Charles Jeronimo joins World Cult Watch’s host Rob Robinson to share his remembrances of a long, and varied history with the “Church” of Scientology. Charles was in what is known as Scientologys upper caste, the Sea Organization, at the time when they were working on their worldwide computerization project called “Incomm.”
     
    Charles has met many fascinating people in Scientology and has a lot of stories to tell.
    ~~~
    World Cult Watch, a weekly program that airs every Sunday night, is intended to not only offer news and information about cults, but to provide a forum where cult survivors — and those wanting to leave — have a chance to talk and receive emotional support.
    Bob runs the “World Cult Watch” website, offering insight and hard-hitting stories about the teachings of various abusive and authoritarian cults. In his show and website, Rob also offers comfort for ex-cult members struggling with the guilt, grief, anger and other emotions associated with spiritual abuse.

This show will examine things said by men and woman claiming to be Gods ministers to reveal whether or not they are speaking Gods word and doing his will. 1Pet 4: 11 If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through JesusChrist, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.We hope you tune in and listen to our show. We air programs on Blog Talk Radio at the following times: Sun 2:00pm, Tue 8:00pm, Wed 7:00pm, Fri 7:00pm & Sat 9:00am all eastern time.
