INTERNET CULTS: 21st Century Psychological Hucksters!

It’s the newest CON-GAME in town for aspiring spiritual SCAM ARTISTS!

They utilize modern technology and employ techniques of conversational hypnosis and end-times doomsday scare tactics to lure their gullible followers to their internet websites to read their daily ‘messages from Heaven’ and of course (while you are there) make sure you purchase a piece of the GENUINE TRUE CROSS OF CHRIST or a MEDAL which promises a guarantee of ETERNAL SALVATION to all who wear it….

John 14:6

“Jesus saith to him: I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No man cometh to the Father, but by me…”

Some of them are even more off the wall crazy with New Age Dribble about SPACE ALIENS coming down to Earth masquerading as Reptilian humanoid monsters all working for some guy named Ashtar who is ‘Commander of the Grand Cosmic Squadron’.  He is floating around up there above the Earth somewhere in his alien spaceship…

HaHAHahahaHa!

So do people actually BELIEVE all this HOGWASH?  

SHOCKINGLY YES!…  

It is big business and the biggest religious marketing gimmick to hit the fan since Scientology.  And you don’t have to go into some scary compound out in the middle of the desert somewhere in order to join these cults.  They are USER FRIENDLY – right there 24 Hours A Day ON THE INTERNET.

Whether you are looking for messages from Jesus and Blessed Mother or channeled communiques from our alien brethren on the Planet Alpha Centauri it is all there for you to peruse at your convenience.  Even the very precious gift of Eternal Salvation can be found in pixel form via the MDM Cult’s ‘Seal of the Living God’ which may be conveniently downloaded and printed from your home computer.

THE FIRST COMMANDMENT I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself a graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them or serve them. It is written: "You shall worship the Lord your God and him only shall you serve." CCC 2117 All practices of magic or sorcery, by which one attempts to tame occult powers, so as to place them at one's service and have a supernatural power over others - even if this were for the sake of restoring their health - are gravely contrary to the virtue of religion... Spiritism often implies divination or magical practices; the Church for her part warns the faithful against it.

If you want a more substantial charm which offers the same gift then the Medal of Salvation may be just the ticket.  The aluminum medals (worth about one penny) can be purchased ONLINE OF COURSE for a mere $1.50 each which includes the price of shipping.  Oh there is one little catch though… you have to buy them in BULK QUANTITIES of 25 or more.  No biggie though because then you can SPREAD THE SALVATION to all your friends too 😉

Now I have no problem with capitalism or someone selling some junky items over the internet if gullible people are willing to buy their wares, but these tech-savvy hucksters are having a much more sinister effect. Families are being torn apart.  People are being drawn away from their Catholic Faith and from other mainline Christian Denominations and lured into New Age Occultish sects which create FEAR about the end of the world, natural disasters, World War III, and global famines to come!  Such anxiety and panic can often lead to psychological consequences such as severe depression and even suicidal tendencies among cult followers.

Here is the testimony of one family which has been victimized by the Maria Divine Mercy (MDM) Cult as reported by Dialogue Ireland…

Maria Divine Mercy: My brother has gone missing, not geographically but mentally

We are happy to publish the testimony of a family member about the loss of affection and connection with their loved one… It is also the loss of relationship and engagement… Send us your story too….

(Dialogue Ireland is an independent trust that works to promote awareness and understanding of religious issues and cultism in Ireland.)

These dangerous and compulsive internet cults are constantly baiting new followers with sometimes daily messages of doom and gloom and end-times prophesying.  Once ‘hooked’ these followers of seers like Maria Divine Mercy create fake personas on Facebook and join secret closed groups where only those in agreement with the heretical messages are permitted the privilege of membership, and all others who would critique the alleged messages are BOOTED and BLOCKED!  These digital secret societies engage in rabid slanderous remarks against Pope Francis and they mock the Doctrines of our Catholic Faith.  Their victims of psychological manipulation and brainwashing are led to HATE the Vicar of Christ and taught that he is a ‘wicked’ man and a ‘false prophet’!  They are instructed to hoard food and survival supplies in preparation for the coming chastisement of God for the sins of mankind and their only salvation comes not from Jesus Christ but from a paper seal which can be printed off the internet!

Those who follow these digital cults begin to separate themselves from their friends and those they love and spend much of their time praying the over 160 now – ‘Crusade Prayers’ – which must be recited daily to atone for the sins of the world.  For some it is praying special Rosaries which Blessed Mother claims will save the life of a baby for each Hail Mary that is prayed on those specially chosen beads

(Such a devotion has not been approved by the Catholic Church so no special graces are actually attached to prayer on this particular Rosary.)

Or they sit in front of their internet browser reading messages warning them about the coming antichrist and how he is soon going to force us all to accept his ‘Mark of the Beast’ – a tiny microchip implanted under your skin which the devil will use to control your mind.  

Now I want to make clear that these cults are not all directly connected, nor do they all share the same false beliefs or hatred towards Pope Francis, but they all share one common theme of DISOBEDIENCE to Church authority in matters of Faith.  And they all seem to want us to BUY SOMETHING in order to achieve Salvation for one’s soul or to achieve some noble goal like ending the scourge of abortion.

Here is good advice for anyone who is approached about supporting one of these rogue religious groups…

1.  Find out if the visionary’s local bishop has issued any opinion on the seer or their alleged ‘private revelations’.  If the bishop has warned AGAINST it, then STEER CLEAR!

2.  Is the sect encouraging any sort of HATRED or DISOBEDIENCE towards either the Holy Father or the Magisterium of the Catholic Church.

3.  Are they inciting FEAR concerning the End of the World, Nuclear Wars, Natural Disasters, etc…   FEAR is not from God!

If you see any of these WARNING SIGNS present with the group then urge your friend who is trying to lure you in – to return to the Eucharist and to the safety of Sacraments and Devotions which are officially approved and sanctioned by the Church.  Our Catholic Church shall always remain the Pillar and Ground of the TRUTH.

  1. …good..!!!…as John of the cross mentions…not only is following these cults dangerous to one’s faith…it is also an offense to God..since God has given us his word..Jesus..through his word he has said everything that needs to be said..anyone who ignores God’s word and seeks after any peculiar novelty..is offending the integrity of God’s Son…Jesus..

  2. I had never thought about these things before. I usually try to avoid websites I don’t know about like the plague. But I can see how people can be sucked in by the information! It is rampant. Thank you for making us more aware. ~Jenna // A Mama Collective

  3. Greetings! I avoid this stuff like the very plague. If it’s not one of the major approved apparitions or devotions, I don’t go near it.

  4. I must agree 100% with this article. Cults are a dangerous thing. I was taken in for many years by the Maria Divine mercy Cult. Once you are in it is hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel. The members live in fear and will unfriend and block anyone at the drop of a hat that tries to reason with them. They are not allowed to speak with ‘sinners’ as MDM has told them anyone outside of the Cult will ‘infect them’. A genuine mission of God would produce good fruit, mass conversions, healing of the sick, fulfilled prophecies. None of which the MDM Cult can truly claim. This Cult will do and say anything to claim that MDM’s mutterings are fulfilled. In addition they have a deep seated hatred for Pope Francis that is evil and scary to behold. Pray for them.
