"But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction." -2nd Peter 2:1
"Writing for a penny a word is ridiculous. If a man really wants to make a million dollars, the best way would be to start his own religion" (SOURCE: L. Ron Hubbard, Reader's Digest reprint, May 1980, page 1)
And that's exactly what Ron Hubbard did when he created the Church of Scientology.
Scientology is a false religion, founded in 1953, which leads people into Hell. According to a quote from www.scientology.org
>Frequently Asked Questions >What is Scientology About? ...
...Scientology further holds man to be basically good, and that his spiritual salvation depends upon himself and his fellows and his attainment of brotherhood with the universe.
In sharp contrast, the Word of God states that mankind is inherently sinful (Romans 3:23; 5:12), and cannot save himself (Ephesians 2:8-9). We read in Romans 3:12, "They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one." Man is not sinful because he sins; man sins because he is sinful by nature. When Adam sinned, he opened the gate for sin and death to enter the human race. Mankind is basically evil and is totally incapable of saving himself through any self-righteous efforts (Titus 3:5).
Scientology And The Occult
Carefully notice the two Illuminati pyramids in the Scientology logo to the right, with a big "S" passing through them. To gain a perspective on the significance of this, please read my article Religions: The Occult Connection. Anytime you see those Illuminati pyramids, you know the Devil is involved. Scientology is simply repackaged New Age heresy.
The goal of New Age doctrine is to homogenize the world's religions into a universal, undefined, ambiguous, false religion. The basic idea behind New Age is that there are many paths to the "light"; but that light is Lucifer. Truth is truly stranger than fiction my friend. The following quote is from www.scientology.org
>What is Scientology? >Introduction to Scientology ...
Scientology is the study and handling of the spirit in relationship to itself, others and all of life. The religion comprises a body of knowledge extending from certain fundamental truths. Prime among these:
Man is an immortal, spiritual being. His experience extends well beyond a single lifetime. His capabilities are unlimited, even if not presently realized — and those capabilities can be realized. He is able to not only solve his own problems, accomplish his goals and gain lasting happiness, but also achieve new, higher states of awareness and ability.
In Scientology no one is asked to accept anything as belief or on faith. That which is true for you is what you have observed to be true. An individual discovers for himself that Scientology works by personally applying its principles and observing or experiencing results.
Through Scientology, people all over the world are achieving the long-sought goal of true spiritual release and freedom.
That is exactly what the New Agers such as Oprah Winfrey teach. Says Oprah, "One of the most important books I've read is Eric Butterworth's (a New Age Unity leader), Discover the Power Within You." In the book Butterworth blasphemes God by stating ... "Jesus did not come to teach us how divine He was but to teach that divinity was within us." Later Oprah said that "It (claiming exclusive Divinity) would make Jesus the biggest egotist that ever lived."
New Agers such as Oprah believe that mankind can be elevated to divine status through self-improvement, enlightenment, and spiritualism. Oprah's close friend and show guest, Shirley MacLaine, described on a show how to meditate, by going inside yourself, asking your own "intuitive Self" to seek answers to life's questions. Oprah responds, "You know, that is the same as the Bible says, 'Ask and it shall be given, seek and ye shall find'." Shirley confirms. Do you see how subtle Satan's false prophets are ... even twisting the Word of God around in an attempt to deceive people? New Age is damnable heresy folks, and it's the exact same garbage that Scientology teaches.
In the Scientology quote above, we read ... "Man is an immortal, spiritual being ... He is able to not only solve his own problems, accomplish his goals and gain lasting happiness, but also achieve new, higher states of awareness and ability." There's not a dime's difference between the ultimate goal of New Age and Scientology--man can become his own god!
Satan is the god of this world (2nd Corinthians 4:4), and he controls the false religions of this world. The Illuminati pyramid is the symbol of an organization's allegiance to Satan. The agenda behind all of this is to brainwash the masses into accepting and following the Antichrist when he comes. The world's masses are being conditioned for Satan. 2nd Thessalonians 2:10 tells us why so many people will be deceived ... "because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved."
Scientology: A Thriving Greedy Cult
The following quote is from Time Magazine; May 6, 1991; Page 50; Special Report (cover story); by Richard Behar; The Thriving Cult of Greed and Power ...
The Church of Scientology, started by science-fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard to "clear" people of unhappiness, portrays itself as a religion. In reality the church is a hugely profitable global racket that survives by intimidating members and critics in a Mafia-like manner. At times during the past decade, prosecutions against Scientology seemed to be curbing its menace. Eleven top Scientologists, including Hubbard's wife, were sent to prison in the early 1980s for infiltrating, burglarizing and wiretapping more than 100 private and government agencies in attempts to block their investigations. In recent years hundreds of longtime Scientology adherents -- many charging that they were mentally of physically abused -- have quit the church and criticized it at their own risk. Some have sued the church and won; others have settled for amounts in excess of $500,000. In various cases judges have labeled the church "schizophrenic and paranoid" and "corrupt, sinister and dangerous." -READ MORE
Scientology boasts of some famous members in Hollyweird ...
In Hollywood, Scientology has assembled a star-studded roster of followers by aggressively recruiting and regally pampering them at the church's "Celebrity Centers," a chain of clubhouses that offer expensive counseling and career guidance. Adherents include screen idols Tom Cruise and John Travolta, actresses Kirstie Alley, Mimi Rogers, and Anne Archer, Palm Springs mayor and performer Sonny Bono, jazzman Chick Corea and even Nancy Cartwright, the voice of cartoon star Bart Simpson. Rank-and-file members, however, are dealt a less glamorous Scientology.
The musician and congressman, Sonny Bono, was also a longtime Scientologist. Elvis Presley's widow and daughter, Priscilla and Lisa Marie, are also Scientologists. The cult appeals to the rich and famous because God is undefined, and man can become his own god if he so chooses. In sharp contrast, the Word of God defines God by name ... Jesus Christ! (Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1,14; 10:33; Colossians 2:9; 1st Timothy 3:16; Revelation 1:
. Jesus is God Almighty!
L. Ron Hubbard's Bizarre Claims and Teachings
Any reasonable person has to wonder what Scientology's founder, L. Ron Hubbard, was smoking ...
Hubbard is documented to have written about past life memories that include all stages of human evolution since the clam (see Scientology History of Man), lives on past planets as other life forms, and real and implanted memories from the alien spirits that Xenu trapped on Earth 75 million years ago. (SOURCE: WIKIPEDIA, Scientology Beliefs and Practices > past lives)
Past lives, evolution, implanted memories from aliens? Whoa! Hubbard even claimed that he had experienced life on other planets in different life forms! The amazing thing is that millions of victims have been foolish enough to even follow Hubbard ... and make him filthy rich!
The following information is from http://www.sweenytod.com/cos/#IntroScn
Scientology is a religion invented by L. Ron Hubbard, a science fiction writer who died in 1986. It is a mixture of the 'science of mental health' and religious philosophy. They believe that through their technologies and practices they can, through their own effort, achieve immortality and spiritual fulfillment.
The official numbers put the church as "ministering to some 8 million people in more than 100 countries", although how many of those 8 million are active Scientologists is not mentioned.
The upper teachings of Scientology are similar to those of a UFO based religion. They teach that Earth is a prison planet, home to the souls of millions of murdered intergalactic beings. They teach that an evil galactic overload named Xenu had them all killed in order to solve a massive overcrowding problem. This is known as Incident 2. This is not a joke. These are the actual teachings of Scientology. Ex-members have confirmed it. For a complete analysis of Incident 2, please see http://www.xs4all.nl/~kspaink/fishman/ot3.html
The following information is from http://www.sweenytod.com/cos/#CompatReligion
Scientology claims to be compatible with all religions. This section looks at that claim, with a special focus on how it relates to orthodox Christianity.
Hear L. Ron Hubbard, the creator of Scientology, speak for himself. In these sound files, you will find Mr. Hubbard:
Claim that man invented God.
Claim that there was no Christ.
The Christian faith is part of an implant, a false memory planted by an evil space alien.
Say that because Scientology and Christianity disagree, the Christian religion cannot be true.
Claim to have been nearly run down by a train on Venus (yes, the planet Venus - I kid you not).
A number of other things, that you'll just have to listen to yourself!
Clearly, Ron Hubbard was NO Christian! Hubbard was a wolf in Sheep's clothing, and the cult of Scientology is straight out of the pits of Hell. Unbelievably, Scientologists today claim that Christianity and Scientology are compatible. The honest truth is that Christianity is diametrically opposed to the damnable false religion of Scientology. The following writings of the lunatic, L. Ron Hubbard--the ideals and policies that he developed for the Church of Scientology to blindly follow, clearly prove that the Church of Scientology is NOT in any way compatible with Christianity:
"There are gods above all other gods, and gods beyond the gods of the universes." (Scientology, 8-8008, pp. 72-3)
"The whole Christian movement is based on the victim ... A Scientologist is not a victim ... We can win by converting victims. Christianity succeeded in making people into victims. We can succeed by making victims into people" (HCO Bulletin, 18 July 1959).
"Neither Lord Buddha, nor Jesus Christ were OT's according to the evidence. They were just a shade above clear" (Ability, No. 81, 1959).
Scientology claims that it alone "brings man to total freedom and truth" (A Description of the Scientology Religion, p. 57). The Word of God teaches that Jesus Christ shed His blood upon the cross to set us free (Galatians 5:1; 1st Peter 1:18-19).
"It is despicable and utterly beneath contempt to tell a man he must repent, that he is evil" (Professional Auditor Bulletin [PAB] #31, 23 July 1954). In sharp contrast, Romans 3:23 declares ... "For all have sinned."
"Nobody but the individual can die for his sins" (HCO Bulletin, 2 January 1960). Hubbard is a liar! Unsaved men who die in their sins without Christ will die the second death, paying for their sins forever in the Lake of Fire (Revelation 20:11-15, 21:
. 1st Corinthians 15:3 proclaims ... "For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures."
"It is a basic tenet of Scientology that man is basically good ... Sin is composed ... of lies and hidden actions and is therefore untruth" (What is Scientology? p. 546). Romans 3:10 states the exact opposite.
"Hell is a total myth, an invention just to make people unhappy and is a vicious lie" (PAB #130, 15 Feb. 1958). Is L. Ron Hubbard being punished in Hell at this moment for his rejection of Christ.
"Religion ... being basically a control mechanism used by those who have sent the preclear into a body. You will find the cross as a symbol all over the universe, and the Christ legend as an implant in preclears millions of years ago" (PAB #31, 23 July 1954).
In Scientology's Class 8 course, lecture 10, (3 October 1968) Hubbard taught, "Somebody somewhere on this planet, back about 600 B.C. found some pieces of R6, and I don't know how they found it, either by watching madman or something. But since that time they have used it and it became what is known as Christianity. The man on the cross. There was no Christ" (Corydon and Hubbard, L. Ron Hubbard, Messiah or Madman? p. 362). [Note 1]
"Also the Christian church used (and uses) implanting ... They took over the Nicene Creed before the year zero, invented Christ (who comes from the crucifixion in R6 75M years ago, and implanted their way to power" (HCO Bulletin, 23 September 1968, Class VIII). [Note 1]
Hubbard claimed that through "scientific research," not opinion, he went to Heaven. He wrote, "For a long while some people have been cross with me for my lack of cooperation in believing in a Christian Heaven, God, and Christ. I have never said that I didn't disbelieve in a Big Thetan, but there was something very corny about Heaven, et. al ... There was a heaven ... Yes, I've been to Heaven. And so have you. You have the pattern of its implants ... The Symbol of the crucified Christ is very apt indeed. It's the symbol of a thetan betrayed ... The place is so full of lies by implant that the preclear becomes quite confused.... somebody discovered ...and utilized them to install religious mania and pin Thetans down to 'one life' and planets" ("Routine 3", HCO Bulletin, 11 May, A.D. 13 [pub. 1963] pp. 1-3).
"But I imagine when we finally manage to communicate with beetles under rocks and free them, we'll no doubt find the Creator of Heaven who 43+ trillion years ago designed the Pearly Gates and entrapped us all. Good Lord, I'd hate to be guilty of that overt" (Ibid., p.4)
August Murphy, president of the Church of Scientology of San Francisco wrote, "Another basic concept Scientology shares with universal religious thought is reincarnation. Like Buddhism, Hinduism, and early Christianity, Scientology believes that the individual as an immortal being has assumed many bodies in his evolution in the physical universe toward an ultimate realization and freedom from material bondage" (The News-Herald, 27 July 1992 p. 5). Reincarnation is a lie of the Devil.
Hubbard claims that reincarnation was a belief held by the early Christian church and was removed by "four monks" at the "synod of Constantinople" in 553 A.D. (Have You Ever Lived Before This Life? p. 2).
L. Ron Hubbard created an entire universal cosmology that includes an evil Galactic Ruler named Xenu. He places humans on other planets in the Solar System, including Mars and Venus. He populates billions of planets in the universe with people. Do they all have Jesus for their redemption? The Bible doesn't mention any of them. (OT III, see http://www.xenu.net/
L. Ron Hubbard claims that Scientology can give people supernatural powers including the power to heal the sick, both body and mind. Hubbard also created a ritual he called "touch assist" which is a Demonic version of the laying on of hands which does not call upon God's power (e.g. See The Road to Xenu, by Margery Wakefield).
So what do you think about the Church of Scientology's claim that their religion is some how compatible with Christianity?
[Note 1] The Church of Scientology claims that the documents which comprise "Operating Thetan Level 8" are forgeries. It is therefore surprising to note that when the Church of Scientology raided the home of Arnie Lerma for alleged copyright violations, the Church of Scientology identified copies of the OT8 documents as copyrighted materials belonging to their Church. Was that an error or does the Church of Scientology disavow L. Ron Hubbard's ideals and policies out of both embarrassment and the fact that his goal is to covertly lead as many people away from Jesus and redemption as possible?
The Satanic and Occult Influence in Scientology
Carefully notice the Illuminati pyramid in Aleister Crowley's hat to the right. The following information is from http://www.sweenytod.com/cos/#Occult
Aleister Crowley was a Satanist, and described himself as "The Beast." You can read more about Crowley here. Crowley said this about Satan, the Devil:
"I was not content to believe in a personal devil and serve him, in the ordinary sense of the word. I wanted to get hold of him personally and become his chief of staff." -Aleister Crowley, The Confessions of Aleister Crowley, chapter 5 (1929; revised 1970).
To the best of my knowledge, Mr. Hubbard was not a disciple of Crowley, but he was a fan. Crowley on the other hand is reported to have been in despair over Hubbard and his followers, calling them idiots. L. Ron Hubbard made reference to him in several of his lectures, and even called Crowley "my good friend" at least once. You can listen to Hubbard say exactly that in this MP3sound file (here is a RealPlayer file version).
The cross used by Crowley and Hubbard
Another interesting thing to look at is the Scientology cross. This is their symbol. You can see the huge similarity between Crowley's cross and the one Mr. Hubbard adopted for his new religion.
This clearly shows that the founder of Scientology was so impressed by A. Crowley's work, that he adopted his symbol.
The fact that L. Ron Hubbard was enamored with the occult needs to be kept in mind when evaluating what they teach. The techniques and processes used by Scientologists all over the world come from L. Ron Hubbard, a man influenced by the occult and Aleister Crowley, a Satanist who openly worshipped Lucifer. The Bible exposes Lucifer, who appears as an angel of light, as Satan (2nd Corinthians 11:13-15).
For a much more exhaustive study on the subject, please refer to this report written by Jon Atack. These are a long read, but worth the effort if you're interested in the subject.

Ron Hubbard and his relationship with other world religions to read this rather long page. It is heavy going, but worth the effort. I don't know of a better examination of the subject.
L. Ron Hubbard (founder of Scientology) calls Crowley, “My very good friend” (MP3).
Ron Hubbard Blasphemes Christianity
Listen to what L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of the occult Dianetics / Scientology organization, had to say about Christianity. If you want to verify that it is indeed Hubbard's voice, click on this for a RealAudio excerpt from one of the cult sites ...
Assists" lecture. 3 October 1968. #10 in the confidential Class VIII series of lectures ...
Hubbard: "The man on the Cross. There was no Christ. But the man on the cross is shown as Everyman."
L. Ron Hubbard speaking at the Clearing Congress Lectures in 1958 ...
Hubbard: "... we differ enormously from the Christian statements on the subject ... so therefore the Christian religion can not possibly be true ..."
Scientology: Churchianity Without Christianity!
The following quote is from www.scientology.org
>What is Scientology? >Catechism (FAQ) ...
Scientology affirms the existence of a Supreme Being, although its dogma is unique and does not include the worship of one. Scientology believes that only through total spiritual enlightenment can one then truly discover and understand the Supreme Being.
In sharp contrast, the Word of God proclaims in John 3:3... "Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." You can obtain all the "spiritual enlightenment" you want; but you'll go straight to Hell when you die if you've not been BORN-AGAIN in Christ Jesus. Scientology offers religion without truth; Churchianity without Christianity.
The teachings of L. Ron Hubbard are demonic, and he is tragically burning in Hell this moment because he died in his sins without Jesus Christ as Savior. Ron Hubbard taught that the Christian faith is part of a brain implant, a false memory planted by an evil space alien. Oh how the Devil kills, steals, and destroys! L. Ron Hubbard was a willing servant of evil. Scientology is an infectious spiritual disease that will rot your soul and send you to Hell.
Ron Hubbard is Scientology, just as Charles Taze Russell is the Jehovah's Witnesses, and Joseph Smith is the Mormons (which are all connected with the occult by the way). Nearly every false religion can be traced back to a single heretic. Lutheranism began with Martin Luther. Seventh-Day Adventism began with Ellen G. White. Christian Science began with Mary Baker Eddy. Scientology is a dangerous cult of greed... RUN AWAY!
