Why Do People Join Cults?
The world of the cult has been blooming more than ever. A lot of people has turned to these cults and became life gurus and teach philosophical teachings or even offer faddish products to other people just to induce these individuals to be part of their population. If you have ever asked why these cults have been very successful in recruiting and making their population grow, then this article will answer those confusions. Below, the reasons to why many people are encouraged and induce to be part of these cult groups will be discussed. These answers will also be signs of warning if you can be vulnerable to join these groups.
Cults are very wise in their recruitment effort. Cults are groups that attack the principle and beliefs in the biblical effort. And so they make their recruitment efforts in the personal lives of people.
The way to do this recruitment is that they invite those people who have no or little knowledge of the teaching of the Bible. They invite these people Bible studies, usually in-home Bible studies wherein they usually tamper and distort the real teaching of the bible. They do a little twisting just to promote their principle s and beliefs by also promoting their religious leader.
The fact that a person has no or less knowledge on the Bible, then these cultists will make sure to entice them to the principles of their cults. When a cultist discovers that you have enough and you are a firm Christian then this cultist will not consider you as part of its recruitment effort.
One of the reasons why people join cults is because of life transition. When one is suffering from the feeling of unstableness in his life, he or she seeks for something he or she thinks will stabilize the current situation. Divorce, marriage, a new job, a death in the family, attending college for the first time are some of a person’s biggest life change that make it great for cults to do their recruiting effort.
Since a person is very vulnerable at this struggling time, the cultist makes a move to entice this person. Once the cultist sees that the person becomes interested and dependent on his counsel, then the cultist takes this opportunity to involve one to the cult. What cultist will do the cult mentality that the person has no opportunity to react or question because the cultist keeps him or her busy doing the given cult duties.
