Cults Faith Healing And Coercion Article Cults: Faith Healing And Coercion

Have you ever wondered why some people end up in cults and become deeply devoted to their leaders? Or how faith healing practices can manipulate vulnerable individuals into abandoning conventional medicine? In this in-depth exploration, we delve into the dark world of cults, faith healing, and coercion.

Understanding Cults: Manipulation and Control

Cults are often characterized by their intense devotion to a charismatic leader and the tight-knit communities they form. Through careful manipulation and control tactics, these leaders exploit the vulnerabilities of individuals seeking direction and purpose in their lives. From brainwashing techniques to isolation from the outside world, cults can be incredibly detrimental to their members' physical and psychological well-being.

The Power of Belief: Faith Healing and Its Controversies

Within the realm of religious practices, faith healing stands as a controversial and often debated topic. While for some it represents a deeply ingrained belief system, others argue that faith healing can lead to the neglect of necessary medical treatments. Explore the stories of individuals who have trusted in faith healing and their journeys through hope, desperation, and unanswered prayers.

From the mass weddings of Sun Myung Moon's Unification Church to the ritual suicides at Heaven's Gate, charismatic cults and their devotees have become facts of American life. Using material gleaned from twenty-five years of direct encounters with cults and their detractors, as well as extensive research, Marc Galanter offers the most extensive psychological analysis of these organizations available. Cults explores not only how members feel and think at all stages of their involvement, but also how larger social and psychological forces reinforce individual commitment within the cults.
For this revised and newly-illustrated second edition, Galanter has added three new chapters on cult development in the 1990s, spiritual recovery movements, and alternative medicine.
