    Does Scientology have a God?

    Good question. http://www.scientology.org/url:1bbztsie is their official website.

    I don’t think they believe in God in the same way we do. It’s more like a general cosmic force or being if anything.

    They believe in Xenu, an evil extra-terrestrial entity that killed inter-galactic assassins in our vulcanos thousands of years ago, releasing their spirits to possess the human race and other weird stuff. This Xenu is responsible for mankind believing in God and Jesus as he implanted these beliefs in the human minds, I guess. I mean, it’s just so many unbelievably wacko stuff that I can’t fathom it!

    They’re quite a dangerous cult, in fact, created by a sci-fi writer <img src=” title=”Very Happy” />, this Ron Hubbard and his dianetics principles. They’ve grown quite rapidly, especially in the US. I’m appaled at how these ¬´religions¬ª even have followers… <img src=:” title=”Question” />

    Found an interesting leaflet of information on that xenu god of scientology. I cannot phathom how a logical person can believe such nonsense. Especially Katie Holmes who converted to scientology when she married Tom Cruise. Here is the website http://www.xenu.net/archive/leaflet/

    Some marital pressure, perhaps? I once read that Cruise was expecting that their forthcoming son would be the Scientology ¬´messiah¬ª so to speak, which left Holmes quite freaked out…

    No wonder, hun? :rolleyes:

    Thanks for this thread! Wow I didn’t know any of this, other then Hubbard was a SciFi writer. What a mind blowing experience it must be for someone when they reach OTIII. WOW!

    Such lost souls!

    God Bless!

    Scientology has a social club atmosphere. It gets a lot of monied individuals because of the status symbol it has become.

    There is a definite correlation between crazy and believing scientology (witness Tom Cruise and John Travolta). Not sure which way that goes.

    The word Scientology literally means “the study of truth.” It comes from the Latin word “scio” meaning “knowing in the fullest sense of the word” and the Greek word “logos” meaning “study of.”

    Scientology is the study and handling of the spirit in relationship to itself, others and all of life. The Scientology 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.

    This is indeed what their website is full of.

    Nothing.

    Speaking of Tom Cruise, the Germans were very skeptical, disgusted, and even scared when Cruise played his role as Klaus Von Stauffenberg (the famous Nazi officer who tried to assassinate Hitler) in the movie [u:3g007i3f]Valkyrie[/u:3g007i3f] on the basis that Scientology is considered a cult in Germany, unlike America where it’s considered a religion. Maybe we should somehow take heed…

    BTW, [u:3g007i3f]Valkyrie[/u:3g007i3f] wasn’t that bad of a movie <img src=” title=”Smile” /> however, the Germans made their own film about the same subject titled [u:3g007i3f]Stauffenberg[/u:3g007i3f]. I heard it’s wonderfully made <img src=” title=”Smile” />

    I too would like to make a comment about Ron Hubbard….

    Why, of all people, would anyone want to follow this guy?!? It would be about the same if people were to follow authors such as Ray Bradbury, Aldous Huxley, or even J.K Rowling. Sadly, I’m sure that there are people out there who do…

    Why would someone want to follow Luther or Calvin or (insert other name here)?

    Why would someone want to follow another person who deviates from the Gospel?
