    You have to wonder how much of an influence the false religion "scientology" had to do with this? Scientology is another gospel (Gal 1:8) and is a religion that will send ppl to eternal separation from God.

    http://omg.yahoo.com/news/tom-cruise-and-katie-holmes--their-most-memorable-moments.html

    Some facts on Scientology

    4. Sin and Salvation. A major creed of L. Ron Hubbard states that "man is good," an immortal Thetan, able to create MEST. This tenet is consistent with the Dianetic belief that man is descended from the gods and may someday evolve to reclaim his Thetan potential. "Salvation" involves a process of working through levels of self-knowledge and knowledge of past lives (reincarnation) to awaken the pre-existent deity within and regain total godhood. As would be expected, the existence of an eternal heaven and hell is denied.

    5. Christ. Christ is deemed merely a "cleared" individual (see #6 below), i.e., "just a man."

    It appears as if Scientology is nothing but a new age cult. There are plenty of books out there that show the truth about this false gospel (Gal 1:8) and its hell fire doctrines.

    believe they hold to mankind actually being started here by Aliens, that we are aliens with great potentials, and basic problem is that we as a race have forgotten who we really are! getting cured enables us to relaise that we actuall alien gods !

    Scientology is "UFO religion". It was founded by L. Ron Hubbard who was a disciple and follower of Aleister Crowley, the most famous Satanist of the 20th century. It is Satanic.

    Aleister Crowley believed he had not only contacted, but brought into physical manifestation "Lam" which were extraterrestrial intelligent beings. He made a famous painting of Lam.

    This religion believes in reincarnation and that some people previously lived on other planets in the ancient past.

    It is amazing that seemingly intelligent and successful people can believe this stuff, but many do.

    From Wiki;

    I guess a good description of this religion is "spaced out".

    L. Ron Hubbard has been quoted as saying, "If you want to get rich, you start a religion."

    Sources:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scientology_controversies
    http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/L._Ron_Hubbard

    Scientologists obviously say that this is slander:
    http://www.faqs.org/faqs/scientology/skeptic/start-a-religion-faq/

    Also, L. Ron Hubbard was a pulp fiction and science fiction writer:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L._Ron_Hubbard

    Tom Cruise is a well known scientologist. He even had a multi-million dollar safe house made in preparation for the return of Xema:
    http://www.standard.co.uk/showbiz/t...-to-protect-against-alien-attack-6664540.html

    And he was made fun of by Will Ferrell in "Talledega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby" when he jumped out his car and thought he was on fire, yelling, "Help me Tom Cruise! Save me with your magic!"

    I am not sure how anyone could put up with a person who was that into Scientology. Obviously, from an outside perspective, the religion is crazy. But people will believe a lot of things these days.

    Or get a TV spot, or TBN and talk about $1000 seed faith like the name it and claim it and WoF shills do! Then you can buy a basketball arena and fill it with people who have itching ears, to put it mildly. You may be able to get on Hannity!

    http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/lookout...twitter-cruise-holmes-161337674--finance.html

    Rupert Murdoch, New Corp. chief executive and outspoken octogenarian media mogul, took to Twitter on Sunday to weigh in on the breakup of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. And Murdoch's tweets about Scientology sparked a big backlash.

    "Scientology back in news," Murdoch tweeted. "Very weird cult, but big, big money involved with Tom Cruise either number two or three in hierarchy."

    The owner of Fox News, Wall Street Journal and New York Post followed the "cult" comment with another tweet.

    "Watch Katie Holmes and Scientology story develop," Murdoch wrote. "Something creepy, maybe even evil, about these people.
    "
    While Cruise is often associated with Viacom's Paramount Pictures, the Los Angeles Times noted, he has also starred in films for 20th Century Fox--the studio owned by News Corporation--and is "known for being prickly about being challenged about his involvement with Scientology."

    Murdoch, though, is standing by his comments.

    "Since Scientology tweet hundreds of attacks," he wrote later. "Expect they will increase and get worse and maybe threatening. Still stick to my story."

    After a user asked Murdoch for his thoughts on Mormonism, he responded: "Mormonism a mystery to me, but Mormons certainly not evil."

    Scientology is one of the most concerning pagan cults in the world today.

    I recommend two sources for information:
    xenu.net also known as operation clambake
    wikileaks has a lot of confidential documents that expose the vast conspiracy (this actually is one) behind the cult

    It is a powerful, (imho) demonic organization. Very dangerous stuff there.

    So, I just googled "scientology". To understand the next part of my story, I need to explain that out here, our internet provider blocks websites that are not in accordance with General Order 1B. This means that any adult themed websites are blocked, as well as anything cult and occult.

    When I tried to view the webpages I found on scientology, they came up as blocked because they were classified as "cult or occultic".

    A good basic primer on Scientology comes from the movie Knowing with Nicholas Cage. It came out three years ago and is basically a vision of the Scientologist's eschatology. Lots of stuff there.

    Modern day Gnostics, who claim to have hidden/secreat knowledge that once learned, allows a person to overcome sin, sickness, marital problems, job loss etc, as you literally can take command and control overyour circumstances!

    When satan wants to get this teaching into the churches, relabled as word of faith/positive confession etc!

    They are a different bunch. Professionally, I had to work with them on a project, but at the last minute (thank God...the REAL God) it fell thru and one of our competitor's got the contract.

    Let's put it this way: although he may have thought he was an alien from another planet, he sure talked like he was an alien from another planet.

    At the end of the day, they are lost souls. And they need our prayers.
