Cults My First Hand Experience MEO L.A.M. Norman Oetker Missionary “The Light Amidst the Mong/MEO” Hmong Thailand, Reynosa Mexico, English Class, St. Charles Missouri US.

Cults:
 I want to share an experience, its in regards to cults, and cult leaders, with their systematic approach, in overwhelming peoples minds, and ever so slowly, by repetition, plant their false ideals.
Their personal charisma, along with the introduction of new materials, to their select, unaware audience leads, or begins to clear a path, for indoctrination.
In Thailand, upon listening to a so-called Christian missionary giving a seminar on a new Bible interpretation of  New Testament established doctrine. 
His presentation was given in a rapid fire order. This is step one, in indoctrination. 
This rapid fire order, this presentational manner, to a casual observer, might seem like the speaker is well informed, and is giving information systematically in his/her presentation, being very professional.
Yet, when one is asked what was it that the speaker was saying? what was his main topic, and the point?
Well… Sophism

Sophism can mean two very different things: In the modern definition, a sophism is a confusing or illogical argument used for deceiving someone. In Ancient Greece, the sophists were a group of teachers of philosophy and rhetoric.

cult leaders do the same, changing the subject, to confuse

Rev. Robber Hall’s writings on “Without God in the World

In the speakers deliberate, misleading presentation, you will hear a whole host of answers by the audience, and that is exactly the flash point, for the detection of being mislead. The red flags are then waving.
In listening to a false teacher once, I purposed to count the times the speaker deliberately, changed the subject within the subject.
Now, this is the God’s truth, I stopped counting after “sixty times,” within the first hour. Sixty times, plus!
Their point is to introduce their subject- that most all agree on, as to it’s general meaning prior to his/her speaking.
Then as one listens, another sidebar comment is made, about the main subject, which in itself is quite harmless, then, because this audience already has a predisposition, to a particular religious view- that which is known by the speaker, and is used, as another tactic, to incorporate within the group, a pretended camaraderie, to their general complaints, that he’ll  then voice, during his discourse, about this or that with in Christendom.
 
The speaker doesn’t return to his starting topic, but, yet off to a another variant subject, within his first sidebar. It’s from this point further, that a maze is developed, a line of reasoning and thought and opinions, that where never to be understood in regards to the introductory, first and original topic.
This new twist, on known subjects and ideals, is yet, introduced in another way, by unknown and unsubstantiated source materials.
  
This is all given in a rapid fire order, the reason is simply to cause the listener to loose, his or her focus, in this maze of statements, and thus, begins, instead of a having a rational thinking person, the speaker then has an audience that is being tired mentally, by trying to assimilate, trying to recall, from personal knowledge, if this is so and in line with scriptures? 
Again, with one to keep pace, with the introduction of all this new source material, and the way in which it is introduced, one begins to tire much and just begins to listen, then to think, that surely this person, who has all this supposed  new knowledge, along with his/her new source material, surely this is new to your ears, at least the parts he or she wants you to hear.
 
Sadly, with the Christian sphere there are many Christian who are Bible illiterate, and can be easily sway by this or that new doctrine, and even those who know the Bible can be lead astray, for they want to be part of this movement, this new understanding,
 
Then to finalize his/her topic, one will need to yet, read other writings of yet, another, to in fact,to begin to see and understand, that which was presented as the truth, presented by false teachers as Bible truths
.
For it is quite easy to miss apply bible passage to suit the individuals particular needs.
Basic knowledge of Christianity, and it’s core, fundamentalist doctrines, are really not understood by the majority of those who say they are Bible believing Christians.
The rapid fire order, will cause one to just accept what one is saying, from being tired, being tired mentally, this is how a foothold begins within one’s physic, skepticism, doubt, uncertainty about what one generally has accepted as truths. Then sad to say, vanity, and pride, with rebellious thoughts begin to emerge.
Like I’ve said before one, who isn’t committed to reading and study the Bible, and it’s basic doctrine will soon be deceived.
Pride enters the wicked heart, as the Bible describes our hearts.
This pride along with vanity, creates the illusion that one is right in their new belief system.
Pride effectively stops any omission of doubt, to what one begins to believe.
Vanity elevates one in the new belief ideals, and as vanity loves to bring attention to it’s beholder, thus this two Pride and Vanity, have effectively captured the unsuspecting.
Sin, with it’s guilt and shame, and most importantly it’s consequences, soon reap into the new convert all that condemnation pours forth.
Sin and it’s pleasures only last for a season, then there is harsh reality.
Grace gives that inner strength to say no! yet, if one’s freely chooses to disobey, God is then put in second place and rebellious sin, with it’s dreadful providence, begins it’s torturous unfolding with in the in full person.
Yet, even in this, God’s “Mercy,” which has flowed from generation to generation continues, this Love! this Power, this Mercy, His Kindness pours for, as the morning dawn vanishes the darkness of night, so does God’s Forgiveness,  His Grace, enabling us, to have the strength to return to His loving kindness. 
The Bible subjects, the believers, are never in isolation, it is part of the overall plan of God, and as one believes and begins to see the purpose of all of the Old and New Covenant/Testaments subjects, there then will be new light, and restored visions, to the purposes, for what we have today.
This is what we, as followers of Christ, have a been God ordained for, in this generation.
The Gospel, the Good News About Christ, is in our court, in this generation’s court, now, for us to return it to God, through His Holy Spirit direction, for His destined purposed, for the Christians, the followers of Christ. 
What will do, about Jesus’s great commission call?
What will you say to the Lord on that Judgment day?
Well the Lord say, “well done good and faithful servant!” or will He say “depart from me you worker of iniquity I never knew you!”

Rev. Robber Hall’s writings on “Without God in the World.” …renders it disgusting to men who are determined at all events to retain their vices. Our Saviour furnishes the solution :—They love darkness rather than light, because their deeds are evil; neither will they come to the light, lest their deeds should be reproved…PREFACE.

…Thus infidelity is the joint offspring of an irreligious temper and unholy speculation, employed, not in examining the evidences of Christianity, but in detecting the vices and imperfections of professing Christians…
