Scientology is among the richest and most powerful of contemporary cults, claiming more than seven million members. Its ideology teaches that all men have internal "engrams" resulting from traumatic life experiences that make them "mad, insufficient and ill." According to Scientologists, the necessary step to rid oneself of these engrams is to participate in "Dianetic therapy." This is accomplished through an "auditor" who "audits" the engram with what is called an E-meter- nothing more than an over glorified lie detector, early model E-meters were said to have been constructed out of V-8 cans. Through "auditing," individuals are able to rid themselves of these "engrams" by submitting to a series of courses, before finally coming to a godlike state called "clear." This "clear" person begins his evolutionary journey in the next stage of man. Hubbard informs us that a clear individual "...can be tested for all psychoses, neuroses, compulsions and repressions (all aberrations) and can be examined for any autogenic (self-generated) diseases referred to as psychosomatic ills. These tests confirm the clear to be entirely without such ills or aberrations."
Hubbard's occult ties have as of late come under more frequent exposure. Biographer Bent Corydon explains that the Satanist Aleister Crowley's Book of the Law was "perhaps the most important book in the life of L. Ron Hubbard." Before starting Scientology, Hubbard was closely associated with occultist Jack Parsons, the head of Aleister Crowley's Ordo Templi Orientis in California. Known as his "magick partner," Hubbard and Parsons embarked on eclectic occult missions in pursuit of the demonic New Aeon spoken of by Crowley. At Scientology's headquarters in New York, the group's historical records contain letters between Parsons and Crowley that mention Hubbard several times. According to Parsons, Hubbard was ready and willing to bring about the kingdom of the antichrist in accord with Crowley's Magick. Jack Parsons wrote to Crowley early in 1946:
"About three months ago I met Capt. L. Ron Hubbard, a writer and explorer of whom I had known for some time. Although he has no formal training in Magick he has an extraordinary amount of experience and understanding in the field. From some of his experiences I deduce he is direct touch with some higher intelligence, possibly his Guardian Angel. He is the most Thelemic person I have ever met and is in complete accord with our own principles. He is also interested in establishing the New Aeon, but for cogent reasons I have not introduced him to the Lodge."
One of Crowley's teachings was that in order to effectively spread his philosophies one would need to start a new religion. Hubbard's aptitude as a Crowleyian occultist applied this insight, thereby giving birth to his Church of Scientology. Consequently, Scientology's teachings are fully base upon the whole of Crowley's satanic dictums. In his book, Magick in Theory and Practice, Crowley wrote: "The whole and sole object of all true magickal training is to become free from every kind of limitation." Adopting the same stated purpose for Scientology, Hubbard said in a taped Scientology lecture: "Our whole activity tends to make an individual completely independent of any type of limitation.... Old Aleister Crowley had some interesting things to say about this. He wrote the Book of the Law."
Crowley's diabolical plan for the New Age was to be renamed and giftwrapped for the new generation under the guise of Scientology. Hubbard copied a distinctively marked cross from the back of Crowley's Tarot-cards, which he used as the main cross and symbol for the Church. Hubbard even boasted to a group of Scientologists of his friendship with Crowley. He said:
"The magical cults of the 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th centuries in the Middle East were fascinating. The only modern work that has anything to do with them is a trifle wild in spots, but is a fascinating work in itself, and that's the work of Aleister Crowley-the late Aleister Crowley-my very good friend. And he did himself a splendid piece of aesthetics built around those magic cults. It's very interesting reading to get hold of a copy of a book, quite rare, but it can be obtained. The Master Therion, T-h-e-r-i-o-n, The Master Therion by Aleister Crowley. He signs himself 'The Beast'; 'The Mark of the Beast,' '666.'"
At Crowley's death, Hubbard believed that he was the self appointed Messiah to usher in the New Age under Antichrist. Biographer, Bent Corydon, explains:
"According to Ron Jr. his father considered himself to be the one 'who came after'; that he was Crowley's successor; that he had taken on the mantle of the 'Great Beast.' He told him that Scientology actually began on December the 1st, 1947. This was the day Aleister Crowley died."
Hubbards son, L. Ron Hubbard Jr, second in command of Scientology for ten years, has confessed this point and to his fathers deceptive scheming. Hubbard Jr. disclosed:
"Also I've got to complete this by saying that he thought of himself as the Beast 666 Incarnate." Interviewer: "The devil?" Ron Jr.: "Yes. Aleister Crowley thought of himself as such. And when Crowley died in 1947 my father then decided that he should wear the cloak of the beast; and become the most powerful being in the universe. He thought he was Satan. He was one with Satan. He had a direct pipeline of communication and power with him."
There is no denial to the fact of Crowley's Satanic influence over the modern day church of Scientology. Its members are direct adherents to the philosophies of Crowley as dictated by Hubbard. What has this to do with Hollywood? Everything. Hubbard intrinsically knew the influential power the Hollywood elite held over the world. To bring about his New Aeon in full force, Hubbard needed their help. One of his first all out offensives for evangelization of the world was called, "Project Celebrity." This strategy for success involved winning over such celebrities as Orson Welles, Danny Kaye, James Stewart, Greta Garbo, Walt Disney, Darryl F. Zanuck, Cecil B. DeMille, and many others. Scientology's Ability magazine printed detailed instructions for hunting them down:
"If you want one of these, write us at once, giving the ONE celebrity you have selected. We will then allocate this person to you as your game. Having been awarded one of these celebrities, it will be up to you to learn what you can about your quarry and then put yourself at every hand across his or her path..."
Why did not Hubbard aim for his neighbors or the folks at the bowling alley, etc? Because he knew that by attaining favor with the influential gods and goddesses of the movie temples, he would overwhelmingly reach his neighbors, the folks at the bowling alley, etc. Some forty-five years later, Scientology has truly arrived in Hollywood in a big way. The list of vocal Scientologist celebrities is of no end: Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman, Priscilla Presley, Anne Archer, Juliette Lewis, Kelly Preston, John Travolta, Mimi Rogers, Lisa Marie Presley, Karen Black and Kirstie Alley. The list goes on and on.
One would be hard pressed to find someone who was unfamiliar with the name of megastar movie mogul Tom Cruise. One of the top paid and leading actors in Hollywood for years, Cruise has produced box office sensations decade after decade. Of his inflated 20 million dollar per movie salary he says, "I get paid because I'm worth it and they should pay me that much." He should be paid 20 million to flaunt sexual immorality, adultery, murder, as well as other moral decadence? And due to the huge box office draw of his name alone, great majorities of people are learning how to better perform and employ sinful acts. With Cruise's phenomenal rise to fame, one must question the source of his empowerment. Cruise's gives credit to Scientology. He says:
"I have gained a lot from Scientology. I know what it is and how it can help people from my own personal involvement and study of the subject."
Top Gun, Cocktail, Jerry McGuire, Magnolia, Eyes Wide Shut, etc. all depict a young man who lives life by his own rules, appearing charmingly defiant to God- all the while charismatically captivating movie audiences in the process. Why does such a rebellious attitude appear so attractive? Because "doing ones own thing" without fear of consequence appeals to the rebellious nature latent within mankind that urges him to live by his own law. In this same vein, Cruise seduces others with his onscreen roles by seductively portraying one who would live his life by his own law apart from God's considerations. This is congruous with the whole of Scientology. Hubbard Jr. states,
"The one super-secret sentence that Scientology is built on is: 'Do as thou wilt. That is the whole of the law.' It also comes from the black magic, from Aleister Crowley. It means that you are a law unto yourself, that you are above the law, that you create your own law. You are above any other human considerations."
Having been a staunch defender of Scientology in the past, there are reports that Cruise may now be distancing himself from the organization. The recent breakup from longtime wife Nicole Kidman has done much to fire up the media in search of the answer. Whether these repots are true or not are of little consequence considering his formidable past accomplishments for them. Either way, pray for the soul of Tom Cruise, that he might have his eyes opened to the spiritual deceptions he participates in and be set free to have true fellowship with the Lord.
One famous celebrity involved with Scientology that Scientology does not boast about, talk about, or probably even wants you to know about is Charles Manson, the convicted murderer of Sharon Tate and her friends. Scientology made extensive efforts to hide or destroy Manson's Scientology records. They have continually denied that he was a member, but in the FBI raid on Scientology's headquarters the F.B.I. found abundant Scientology internal intelligence information regarding Manson's involvement. Ultimately, this is what blasting the commandments of God and living life according to ones own code leads to- death and destructive carnage.
Hollywood has long been known as the neurotic center of the universe. Hollywood is also known to be a "tinsel town" of insincerity and has so many other negative connotations - why would any legitimate religion seek celebrity endorsements or try to create a religion around celebrity fame? Further, Scientology is a "Johnny come lately" religion which has denied truths and sought to conform others to it's "new" slant on life. Even Travolta has said, "I have always used in my marriage, and with my son, all the premises of Scientology's new slant on life." An old preachers saying worth memorizing is, "If it's new, it's not true. If it's true, it's not new." Scientology is a lie!
Christ's unalterable return and subsequent destruction of the antichrist and his kingdom is triumphantly described in Revelation chapter 19. The apostle John describes Christ's future return as one of the most spectacular visions ever shown to a man:
"And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war. His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems; and He has a name written on Him which no one knows except Himself. He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. And the armies which are in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, were following Him on white horses. From His mouth comes a sharp sword, so that with it He may strike down the nations, and He will rule them with a rod of iron; and He treads the wine press of the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty. And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, 'KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.' Then I saw an angel standing in the sun, and he cried out with a loud voice, saying to all the birds which fly in midheaven, 'Come, assemble for the great supper of God, so that you may eat the flesh of kings and the flesh of commanders and the flesh of mighty men and the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them and the flesh of all men, both free men and slaves, and small and great.' And I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies assembled to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army. And the beast was seized, and with him the false prophet who performed the signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image; these two were thrown alive into the lake of fire which burns with brimstone. And the rest were killed with the sword which came from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse, and all the birds were filled with their flesh. Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, holding the key of the abyss and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold of the dragon, the serpent of old, who is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; and he threw him into the abyss, and shut it and sealed it over him, so that he would not deceive the nations any longer..."
Jesus Christ returns to lay waste to the antichrist with ease. Notice that He does not even personally capture Satan but humiliatingly sends one of the angels to throw him into the abyss. The armies of the entire world will fight against Him, suddenly united with a common cause- their lust to live their lives their own way and not have Christ King over them. Their fight to "do their own thing" is to no avail and as a consequence experiences the fierce wrath of the Almighty God. Crowley believed himself to be this antichrist who would fight against Messiah. As the self-proclaimed successor to Crowley, Hubbard believed that he would lead mankind into this battle against Christ.
After reaching the godlike state called "clear," Scientology has progressive upper levels known as OT's. They vary in number from 0-20, with higher levels revealing deeper philosophies. In a government raid on Scientology's headquarters, authorities confiscated paperwork detailing the various positions within Scientology, one of which being OT-8. This document is readily available and has achieved a wide public awareness. In one of the dictums of the OT-8 document, Hubbard describes his "mission here on Earth." His mission on Earth was none other than to derail the return of Christ at His Second Coming. He writes:
"No doubt you are familiar with the Revelations section of the Bible where various events are predicted. Also mentioned is a brief period of time in which an arch-enemy of Christ, referred to as the anti-Christ, will reign and his opinions will have sway. All this makes for very fantastic, entertaining reading but there is truth in it. This anti-Christ represents the forces of Lucifer (literally, the 'light bearer' or 'light bringer').... My mission could be said to fulfill the Biblical promise represented by this brief anti-Christ period. During this period there is a fleeting opportunity for the whole scenario to be effectively derailed, which would make it impossible for the mass Marcabian landing (Second Coming) to take place. So there you have it. The secret that I have kept close to my chest all these years."
Many of Hollywood's celebrity Scientologists are at higher levels than this.
The antichrist's kingdom will be brought about through deceptively immoral practices likened to Hubbard's spiritual perversity. Revelation 18 speaks of a worldwide dominance of these perversities that assault God. It says:
"For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the passion of her immorality, and the kings of the earth have committed acts of immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich by the wealth of her sensuality. I heard another voice from heaven, saying, 'Come out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive of her plagues; for her sins have piled up as high as heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities.'"
Mankind will eagerly pursue this wickedness and these abominations will not go unpunished. Cease to heed or participate in the indulgence of the preachers of "sinema," that you may not receive of their plagues. If you want to follow the Lord, you must come out of the movie temples and out from in front of the television altar. The Satanist Anton LaVey identified this as true, correctly labeling the television as "the Satanic family altar" for "the major mainstream infiltration of the New Satanic religion." Jesus Christ is returning- who will you be watching- Him or the TV?
