Matters of Faith


As co-creators, we all have the freewill right
to believe whatever we desire.

All I am asking is that my readers carefully consider
what they believe and why.

I do not claim to know shit for sure.

This page, as are all of the pages on my website are NOT
about proof. But rather offers my thoughts, and those of others
as evidence that I hope my readers will consider.

Most people call their faith their "religion". However, the true
meaning of religion is ritual. In that, we religiously wake up each
morning and perform a host of various rituals such as showering,
drinking coffee, making our beds, brushing our teeth, etc. before
we continue with the rest of our daily rituals.

And I do understand why most people require
something outside of their-self to place their faith in.

Belief systems help most people to, not only make sense
of their reality and give them a sense of hope, but also helps
them create a common bond and a way to identify
with their peers, friends and family.

As Aristotle stated... "It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it."

Because apparently, a time is coming when everything we think we believe will be challenged.

Allow me to try to explain to those of you who have not read my Primary Home Page...

Apparently, once we fragmented from the first to become self aware... (aka "God" to most), we became co-creators...
aka manyness.

And that for the first time in countless generations, what most of those of the Christian persuasion call "rapture", what some call
"convergence" some "realm border crossing" will suggest a merging of the universal reality with the various realities
co-created by our various co-creations.

It seems that during this event, the farther away our co-creations are from the universal reality, the more difficult it will be for the
two realities to merge.

Therefore, this is why I ask others to question everything they think they believe, to NOT take ANYTHING as gospel truth, and
prepare their hearts and minds for the strong possibility that what we were taught to believe in mosques, churches, synagogues,
etc. may not match the universal reality.

With that stated

What is God's name?

If none were before Prime Creator, then how could the first thought have a name? It would be much like you naming
your-self.

Consider the following thoughts, keeping in mind that what is in parentheses are my additions;

"The most ancient name given for the Universal Spirit is Yod He Vau He (Hebrew; YHVH). It is pronounced; Yohd-Hay-
Vah-Hay. This ancient name is not a name as we know a name to be, but rather is a sound vibration which represents the
Universal Laws which governs the primary pattern of the creation.

The name itself, is the key to creation, and the representation of the Universal Law of polarities and the replication/ reproduction
of all vibration. (Every thought creates vibration, therefore, thought is all there is. Thought is the natural creative force, is the
glue which binds everything and everyone together).

Contained within this vibration is the actual formula for creation, and the manifestation of all life within the creation. Thus,
this name of "God" (or "goodness") is probably the single most significant metaphysical concept there is. It is the simplest
thing in the Universe, just the hardest to really understand by the uninitiated, and unenlightened.

Consider the similarities: Yahweh, Ya-Ho-Wah-Ho (YHWH), Ya-Ho-Wa, and Je-Ho-Vah, to name a few.

YHVH is also sometimes referred to as "the tetragrammaton" in magic and metaphysic circles. The first part, which was the
positive polarity or “father” part of the name of God, was Yod.

The ancient teachings say that ‘He who can pronounce this name properly opens the gates of heaven. This saying is vastly
misunderstood. But even now, in some major religions it is forbidden to even attempt to pronounce YHVH.

In the early days of religion certain ‘priests’ or high priests in power positions, who wanted more power, didn't want the
common people to know this key. They wanted people to need to go to the priests and turn to the religion of those priests
for their understanding of what God is regarding spiritual matters.

This gives priests and other clergy power and control, so they hid the name, changed the name, or made it forbidden to say
by anyone other than the self-appointed ‘high and holy people’. The symbolism and structure of Yod-He-Vau-He is simple,
yet deeply profound. And when its few simple elements combine, they give birth to the entire complexity of life its-self.

In part, YHVH represents a perfect, and simple pattern within atom or the solar system. It also speaks of human procreation,
and stellar/planetary procreation. The first part, “Yod”, represents the positive (+), “Sun”, “light”, “the Father” principles.
Whereas, the first “He” represents the “negative”, not in the sense of “bad” or “evil”, but in the sense of (-), negative
polarity, pure ark-ness like that of the void of space, the receptive, the Mother principles.

“Vau” is the meeting of Yod and He; the place of interplay, intercourse, and combining of the first two principles. It is its own
principle, and the place of conception of, and the birth of, the second “He” (again, pronounced “hay”). The second “He” is
the offspring of Yod and He, the result of their interaction, their subsequent creation. The second “He” has the same
attributes as its Father, the Yod, in that it actually Is a Yod in its own macro or microcosmic realm.

The second “He” is on a vibrational plane an octave apart. The second “He” begins the cycle (Yod-He-Vau-He) again, but
AS THE YOD in microcosm or macrocosm, and its polarity is reversed from its “father” YOD. Interestingly, the “father” principle,
Yod, was distorted through translation over time from “Yod” into “God”, which is also often given a “father”
principle connotation". - The Children of The Law of One

Given those thoughts, It seems to me that the One Infinite Creator (All-father) does not appear to be an individual person, per
se, but rather I AM consciousness, and we responded That I Am are all part of that singularity.

By venturing into the subatomic level of our un, or sub-conscious, that first awareness is our centre which binds us all together.
It seems that we are the sparks which the dragging chain created. We are the fragments of that whole. We are the centres
manyness. Therefore, our names are God's name.


With that stated, what else has been distorted to prevent us from putting this puzzle back together?

I often state that reading a page or two on this, or any other related website, will not give my readers enough information to put
this puzzle back together because there is now so much distortion, and I can not write out every concept over and over on every
page. Therefore, if you do not read the corresponding pages listed in my menu bar, you are NOT going to understand what I am
saying.  

Not only did I spend countless hours gathering the information for this website, but I also previously spent many years in an
evangelical church going along with whatever I was taught to believe until one day it hit me that something was not right.
I then began to think about the rituals such as communion and the dedication of children to the god of Abraham and just whom,
or what it was that inspired these beliefs and various rituals?

Having realized how our races had been mentally and physically manipulated by members of various races such as the
Draconian races, it seemed highly likely that communion and dedications are symbolic jesters based upon human sacrifice.

"The lower parts of our Family (the names you know) use the Vatican (and other leyline locations) for many Rituals and
Sacrifices. That should tell you all you need to know." – Hidden_Hand

Some of my readers understand that Father Abraham migrated out of the Land of UR in Mesopotamia bringing with him the
teachings of the Babylonian Kings such as Hammurabi where it seems that the Code of Hammurabi was condensed then used to
create the Hebrew's 10 Commandments, and it also seems that the Samaritan Pentateuch may have been the foundation used
to create the Hebrew race's various stories such as the great flood.


Now to the days of Constantine and the continuation of the solar deity of astrotheology;

Which it seems may have been the foundation for the Pope and Constantine's desire to reunite the various fragments of
Abrahamism with Greek and other solar deities into one Universal Church of Rome via the Council of Laodicea.

My readers may also be aware of the genocide of the Cathors and the Essenes (apparently whose bloodline begot the one now
called "Jesus of Nazareth") and the burning of the Libraries of Alexandria which made it possible to create the Universal Church
of Rome.

Some of my readers may also understand that before Constantine's fixation he was a worshiper of Mithras, which given various
evidence it seems highly likely that the biography of Mithras was based upon the biography of much earlier solar deities that
were later used to create the Jesus of Nazareth biography.  

My point is, I admire what Constantina tried to do. But by burning all those texts and murdering the very people who may have
been able to challenge Constantine's claims, he then set into motion one of the greatest conspiracies of all time. I mean,
knowing what was done, how can we trust anything stated in any of the various versions of Constantine's Bible?

Now all we can do is use our inner knowing as a BS detector.

With that all stated, having studied the world's man-made, so called "religious faiths", it became obvious to me that all of the
various fragments of Abrahamism, be it Islam, Judaism, Christianity or one of almost countless fragmentations of each, although
each fragment has its own unique set of dogmas, each is the same product sold under various brand names.

Another thing that most people do not seem to think about is that if they were born into an Islamic culture, they often become
Muslim. And when they are born into a Christian culture, they often become Christian. Therefore, it seems obvious to me that
most people only believe whatever their culture teaches then to believe.      

I could go on rambling for hours. But instead, I will stop here and give you the thoughts of others to consider and let you decide
what you wish to believe.  

(If you are Not familiar with higher dimensional thought transference, I highly recommend reading "
HERE" before you continue)

What is the difference between an Occult and Religion?;

"Questioner; Could you give an example of negative polarization sharing love of self? It would seem to me that that would
deplete negative polarization. Could you expand on the concept?
Ra: I am Ra; We may not use examples of known beings due to the infringement this would cause. Thus we must be general." (a
narrow bandwidth?)

The negatively oriented being will be one who feels that it has found power that gives meaning to its existence precisely as the
positive polarization does feel. This negative entity will strive to offer these understandings to other-selves, most usually by the
process of forming the elite, the disciples, and teaching the need and rightness of the enslavement of other-selves for their own
good. These other-selves are conceived to be dependent upon the self and in need of the guidance (salvation?) and the
wisdom of the self." -
The Law of One

This is why I often say... "Worship none, be grateful to all."

"Collective Identity, which is a result of a covenant of Monotheism is explicitly narrated in the Bible as an invention, a radical
break with Nature (the natural order?). A transcendent deity (
Annunaki, the Serpent Gods of the Samaritans perhaps?)
breaks into history with the demand that the people he (they?) constitutes obey the law he (they?) institutes, and first and
foremost among those laws is, of course, that they pledge allegiance to him (them?) and him (they?) alone, and that this is what
makes them a unified people as opposed to the 'other,' as in all other people which leads to violence. In the Old Testament, vast
numbers of 'other' people are obliterated, while in the New Testament, vast numbers are colonized and converted for the sake
of such covenants, (thus the creation of religious occultism)..

The line between CULT and religion is a very hotly debated topic, so getting a hard and fast definition to fit is difficult at best.
According to the dictionary, a "cult" is: "a system of religious worship or ritual; devoted attachment to, or extravagant admiration
for, a person, principle, etc - especially when regarded as a fad; a group of followers; sect." The root of the word "cult" is "kwel,"
which means "to turn, dwell, care for," and is related to the words "culture" and "cultivate."

By modern definitions, a cult is different from a religion. A religion, according to the dictionary, is: a system of religious belief,; a
belief in a divine or superhuman power or powers to be obeyed and worshipped; expression of such a belief in conduct and
ritual; any specific system of belief, worship, conduct and ritual, often including a code of ethic and a philosophy," etc. The root
of the word "religion" is "ligare," which means to "tie up" or "to bind."

The term "cult" has been gradually deprived of its true meaning, and has come to mean something else altogether in our
modern times. In our day, a "cult" is a group that employs manipulative techniques of influence on the minds of followers that are
deceptive. What is humorous about the matter is that, based on our research into the history and development of the three
major monotheistic religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam, they are more properly "cults" than anything around in the present
day in the sense that nearly their entire structure is based on manipulative techniques of influence on the minds of the followers
that are deceptive." After all, what do you call it when people get "saved" because they are afraid of hell-fire and damnation?
Especially if the evidence demonstrates that such "hell-fire and damnation" are not likely to exist?"

“The aim of religion is to create a completely controlled artificial environment composed of thoroughly
predictable human behaviors - made predictable because they have been programmed in through centuries of lies and
obfuscations presented in the form of a 'story' that is actually untrue, and wholly misrepresentative of the real negative aim.

For centuries these programs have been being set up through space/time manipulation. Various prophets or religious leaders
have been influenced to preach, prophesy or teach philosophies designed to lay a foundation for later take-over - possibly in
our present time. It doesn't matter that the religions are essentially "good" or seem to be positive. What does matter are the
programmed responses.

If a person is programmed to believe in "Jesus," if a figure appears to them presenting itself as Jesus, and uses 4th density
technology to stimulate the release of certain neuropeptides that can induce feelings of bliss, the individual is primed and ready
to obey any command of said being whether it is to "kill them all and let God sort them out," as was the general rule of the
Inquisition” –
The Wave Series Transcripts

Basic religions appear to begin with;

1.   The nothingness, total emptiness, chaos.
2.   The emergence of the heavens, earth, flora and fauna by the thought of One Ultimate beingness.
3.   To the creation of the first human being and its companion.
4.   Then to a fall from grace.
5.   Then to punishment for the arrogance of the creation.
6.   Then to a calamity as punishment for the creations arrogance.
7.   Finally a Christ like figure emerges such as
Ra Ta, Quetzalcoatl, Buddha, Muhammad, or Jesus whom the powers-
that-be claim have the power to redeem the people from their ultimate demise.

From my studies none of the personages above claimed to be a "God", but rather it was the desperateness of the people
which allowed their-selves to believe these were "God" in order to feel that they have an alliance with someone out side of their
our-self with a vested interest in them.

CHRISTIAN COERCIVE PERSUASION PROGRAMING

"There is no religion higher than truth. Organized religion is nothing more than control systems designed to mentally and
spiritually enslave humans and deprive them of freewill.

Religion, in of its-self have alien origins, or else are corrupted by negative alien factions and their human counterparts who seek
control over the masses, bar none.

Any religion demanding its followers pray or focus on a deity outside them-self is aiding in the transdimensional economy of
spiritual energy robbery and consumption by nonphysical beings. Religion was created specifically by the parent alien race to
be followed by their human counterpart race. Faith in such should only be used for yet-unknowable, not dogmatically ignored,
phenomena.

The so called "church" is unnecessary as an aid to spiritual evolution and only acts as a social institution for social programming
purposes. Church is
NOT a replacement for communion with one's inner guidance." - Unknown

“Coercion is defined as, "to restrain or constrain by force..." Legally it often implies the use of PHYSICAL FORCE or physical or
legal threat. This traditional concept of coercion is far better understood than the technological concepts of "coercive
persuasion" which are effective restraining, impairing, or compelling through the gradual application of PSYCHOLOGICAL
FORCES.

A coercive persuasion program - within Christianity it is called "The Gospel Persuasion" - is a behavioral change technology
applied to cause the "learning" and "adoption" of a set of behaviors or an ideology under certain conditions. It is distinguished
from other forms of benign social learning or peaceful persuasion by the conditions under which it is conducted and by the
techniques of environmental and interpersonal manipulation employed to suppress particular behaviors and to train others.
Over time, coercive persuasion, a psychological force akin in some ways to our legal concepts of undue influence, is MORE
effective than pain, torture, drugs, and use of physical force and legal threats.

The Korean War "Manchurian Candidate" misconception of the need for suggestibility-increasing drugs, and physical pain and
torture, to effect thought reform, is generally associated with the old concepts and models of brainwashing. Today, they are not
necessary for a coercive persuasion program to be effective. With drugs, physical pain, torture, or even a physically coercive
threat, you can often temporarily make someone do something against their will. You can even make them do something they
hate or they really did not like or want to do at the time. They do it, but their attitude is not changed. In Christianity this is called
a "false conversion".

This is much different and far less devastating than that which you are able to achieve with coercive persuasion. With coercive
persuasion you can change a person's will without their knowledge and volition. You can create new "attitudes" where they will
do things willingly which they formerly may have detested, things which previously only torture, physical pain, or drugs could
have coerced them to do. In effect, their desires change, their viewpoints change, and their feelings change through this Gospel
persuasion. Most people have no idea of the depth of change that this type of persuasion can bring into a person, even
changing them in "an instant". This seems impossible and that is a part of its strength and deceitfulness.

The extreme anxiety and emotional stress production technologies found in Gospel Coercive Persuasion supersede any
physical style coercion that focuses on pain, torture, drugs, or threat in that these physical systems of coercion do not change
an attitude so that subjects follow orders "willingly." Christian or Gospel Coercive Persuasion changes both attitude AND
behavior, not JUST behavior.

Christian or Gospel Coercive Persuasion (or thought reform as it is sometimes known) is best understood as a coordinated
system of graduated coercive influence and behavior modification designed to change the wills and volition of individuals,
usually in a group setting, in order for the originators of the program - those witnessing or preaching - to spiritually and
psychologically profit from this persuasion to validate their own program and to continue the feeling that the program gives each
converted person. This Gospel Coercive Persuasion is a psychological program that is inherently addictive in itself, because the
program makes itself the sole purpose of life and feeling. This is one of the reasons why it is so hard on many levels to
deprogram and be freed from this psychological addiction of this program.

The essential strategy used by those operating such programs is to systematically select, sequence and coordinate numerous
coercive persuasion tactics over CONTINUOUS PERIODS OF TIME. There are seven main tactic types found in various
combinations in the Christian Coercive Persuasion program. A coercive persuasion program can still be quite effective without
the presence of ALL seven of these tactic types.

TACTIC 1. The individual is prepared for thought reform through increased suggestibility and/or "softening up," specifically
through hypnotic or other suggestibility-increasing techniques such as audio, visual, verbal, or tactile fixation drills (anything that
is "moving" to the emotions as well as to the mind, i.e., worship music, dancing, embraces, stirring preaching or instructional
teaching from a pulpit) and excessive repetition of routine activities.

TACTIC 2. Using rewards and punishments, efforts are made to establish considerable control over a person's social
environment, time, and sources of social support. Social isolation is promoted ("You are not of the world", "Christ can to bring a
sword"). Contact with family and friends is abridged, as is contact with persons who do not share church-approved attitudes.
Psychological and emotional dependence on the group is fostered.

TACTIC 3. Disconfirming information and non-supporting opinions are prohibited in church communication. Rules exist about
permissible topics to discuss with outsiders. Communication is highly controlled, especially communication from God. God's
communication is one-way, via the bible, and nothing is to contradict that communication. An "in-group" language is usually
constructed, sometimes called "Christianese."

TACTIC 4. Frequent and intense attempts are made to cause a person to re-evaluate the most central aspects of his or her
experience of self and prior conduct in negative ways. Efforts are designed to destabilize and undermine the subject's basic
consciousness, reality awareness, world view, emotional control, and defense mechanisms as well as getting them to reinterpret
their life's history, and adopt a new version of causality. This is usually called "sanctification" and "working out your salvation
with fear and trembling."

TACTIC 5. Intense and frequent attempts are made to undermine a person's confidence in himself and his judgment, creating a
sense of powerlessness. The only power that can help is God, or more precisely, the specific church's or Christian group's
version of God. The eldership, church leaders, or "advanced" Christians are usually relied upon to understand the bible and for
"encouragement" to "have the mind of Christ."

TACTIC 6. Nonphysical punishments are used such as intense humiliation (private and public confession of sin), loss of privilege
(suspension or excommunication from the church or Christian group), social isolation (from the world and the "unbelievers" as
well as from erring or heretical Christians that doesn't agree with their church or group), social status changes (from being a
"respectable" and "stable" Christian to a "weak" or "unstable" Christian), intense guilt, anxiety, manipulation and other
techniques for creating strong aversive emotional arousals, etc.

TACTIC 7. Certain psychological threats (force) are used or are present: That failure to adopt the approved attitude, belief, or
consequent behavior will lead to severe punishment or dire consequence, (e.g. physical or mental illness given by God, the
reappearance of a prior physical illness, worldliness, personal economic collapse, social failure, divorce, failure to find a mate,
etc.).

Another set of criteria has to do with defining other common elements of mind control systems. If most of Robert Jay Lifton's
eight point model of thought reform is being used in an organization, it is most likely a dangerous and destructive cult.
Conservative Christianity is a dangerous and destructive cult (please note that "dangerous and destructive" does NOT mean
that it must be PHYSICAL.

The dangerousness and destructiveness is a psychological, emotional and spiritual one. Just because Christianity doesn't
normally create personal or public violence does NOT mean that it is not severely destructive on many other levels). If you are
an ex-Christian or presently a Christian you will be able to see that every sentence of these following points are prevalent within
Conservative, Evangelical and Fundamentalist Christianity. The eight points follow:

Robert Jay Lifton's Eight Point Model of Thought Reform;

1. ENVIRONMENT CONTROL. Limitation of many/all forms of communication with those outside the group. Worldly books,
magazines, letters and fellowship with unbelieving friends and family are taboo. "Come out and be separate!"

2. MYSTICAL MANIPULATION. The potential convert to the group becomes convinced of the higher purpose and special calling
of the group through a profound encounter or experience, for example, through an alleged miracle or prophetic word or spiritual
feeling while within the group.

3. DEMAND FOR PURITY. An explicit goal of the group is to bring about some kind of change, whether it be on a global, social,
or personal level. "Perfection is possible if one stays with the group and is committed." (This "perfection" is associated with
sanctification, "(Mat 5:48) Therefore, you be perfect even as your Father in Heaven is perfect." "(2Co 13:11) For the rest,
brothers, rejoice! Perfect yourselves"

4. CULT OF CONFESSION. The unhealthy practice of self disclosure to members in the group. Often (but not always) in the
context of a public gathering in the group, admitting past sins and imperfections, even doubts about the group and critical
thoughts about the integrity of the leaders.

5. SACRED SCIENCE. The group's perspective is absolutely true and completely adequate to explain EVERYTHING (A
knowledgeable Christian can rebut any critical question presented and Christianity is the Truth and is capable to explain
everything about life and spirituality). The doctrine is not subject to amendments or question. ABSOLUTE conformity to the
doctrine is required. "(Mat 7:28) And it happened, when Jesus had finished these words, the crowds were astonished at His
doctrine." "(Mat 7:28) "(1Ti 4:16) Give attention to yourself and to the doctrine; continue in them, for doing this, you will both
deliver yourself and those hearing you."

6. LOADED LANGUAGE. A new vocabulary emerges within the context of the group. Group members "think" within the very
abstract and narrow parameters of the group's doctrine. The terminology sufficiently stops members from thinking critically by
reinforcing a "black and white" mentality. Loaded terms create prejudice, or bias thinking, thus preventing the flow of knowledge.

7. DOCTRINE OVER PERSON. Pre-group experience and group experience are narrowly and decisively interpreted through the
absolute doctrine, even when experience contradicts the doctrine.

8. DISPENSING OF EXISTENCE. Salvation is possible only in the group (Christianity). Those who leave the group are doomed.

Any group that has most or all of these points is a destructive mind control cult.

CHRISTIAN COERCIVE PERSUASION IS NOT PEACEFUL PERSUASION;

Christian programs identified with the above-listed seven tactics have in common the elements of attempting to greatly modify a
person's self-concept, perceptions of reality, and interpersonal relations. When successful in inducing these changes, coercive
thought reform programs also, among other things, create the potential forces necessary for exercising undue influence over a
person's independent decision-making ability, and even for turning the individual into a deployable agent for the organization's
benefit without the individual's meaningful knowledge or consent.

Christian Coercive Persuasion programs are effective because individuals experiencing the deliberately planned severe
stresses they generate can only reduce the pressures by accepting the system or adopting the behaviors being promulgated by
the purveyors of the coercion program. The relationship between the person and the coercive persuasion tactics are DYNAMIC
in that while the force of the pressures, rewards, and punishments brought to bear on the person are considerable, they do not
lead to a stable, meaningfully SELF-CHOSEN reorganization of beliefs or attitudes.

Rather, they lead to a sort of coerced compliance and a situationally required elaborate rationalization, for the new conduct.
With this being said the mind will reconstruct its reality and will view everything through this new reality. The construct of this new
reality, to the new convert, is perfect and whole and beautiful even though it is psychologically devastating and logically
contradictory. The Christian mind cannot see its own blind-spots. It sees no contradictions, no dangers, no imperfections, yet
this is the Matrix that is the Christian Coercion Persuasion Program.

Once again, in order to maintain the new attitudes or "decisions," sustain the rationalization, and continue to unduly influence a
person's behavior over time, coercive tactics must be more or less CONTINUOUSLY applied, thus the need to be a consistent
member of a local church or Christian "body". A fiery, "hell and damnation" guilt-ridden sermon from the pulpit once a month, an
hour of bible study within the New Testament on sanctification once a week, or other single instances of the so-called peaceful
persuasions do not constitute the "necessary chords and orchestration" of a SEQUENCED, continuous, COORDINATED, and
carefully selected PROGRAM of surreptitious coercion, as found in the comprehensive program of Christian Coercive
Persuasion.

Looking like peaceful persuasion is precisely what makes Christian coercive persuasion less likely to attract attention or to
mobilize opposition. It is also part of what makes it such a devastating control technology. Victims of coercive persuasion have:
no signs of physical abuse, convincing rationalizations for the radical or abrupt changes in their behavior, a convincing
"sincerity", and/or they have been changed so gradually that they don't oppose it because they usually aren't even aware of it.

Deciding if coercive persuasion was used requires case-by-case careful analysis of all the influence techniques used and how
they were applied. By focusing on the medium of delivery and process used, not necessarily the message itself, and on the
critical differences, not the coincidental similarities, which system was used becomes clear. The Influence Continuum helps make
the difference between peaceful persuasion and coercive persuasion easier to distinguish.

VARIABLES

Not all tactics used in a Christian coercive persuasion type environment will always be coercive. Some tactics of an innocuous or
cloaking nature will be mixed in.

Not all individuals exposed to Christian coercive persuasion or thought reform programs are effectively coerced or converted
into becoming Believers.

How individual suggestibility, psychological and physiological strengths, weakness, and differences react with the degree of
severity, continuity, and comprehensiveness in which the various tactics and content of a coercive persuasion program are
applied, determine the program's effectiveness and/or the degree of severity of damage caused to its victims.

WHAT ARE THE CRITERIA OF THE CHRISTIAN COERCIVE PERSUASION PROGRAM?

A). Determine if the subject individual held enough knowledge and volitional capacity to make the decision to change his or her
ideas or beliefs.

B). Determine whether that individual did, in fact, adopt, affirm, or reject those ideas or beliefs on his own.

C). Then, if necessary, all that should be examined is the behavioral processes used, not ideological content. One needs to
examine only the behavioral processes used in their "conversion." Each alleged coercive persuasion situation should be
reviewed on a case-by-case basis. The characteristics of coercive persuasion programs are severe, well-understood, and they
are not accidental.

Christian Coercive Persuasion is not a religious practice, it is a control technology. It is not a belief or ideology, it is a
technological process.

As a PROCESS, it can be examined by experts on its technology COMPLETELY SEPARATE from any idea or belief content,
similar to examining the technical process of hypnotic induction distinct from the meaning or value of the post-hypnotic
suggestions.

Examining PROCESSES in this manner can not violate First Amendment religious protections.

Christian Coercive Persuasion is antithetical to the First Amendment. It is the unfair manipulation of other's biological and
psychological weaknesses and susceptibilities. It is a psychological FORCE technology, not of a free society, but of a criminal or
totalitarian society.

Any organization using coercive persuasion on its members as a CENTRAL practice that also claims to be a religion is turning
the SANCTUARY of the First Amendment into a fortress for psychological assault. It is a contradiction of terms and should be
"disestablished.

Coercive persuasion is a subtle, compelling psychological force which attacks an even more fundamental and important
freedom than our freedom of religion, it attacks our self-determination and our freewill, our most fundamental constitutional
freedoms” – Unknown source
