The “Socially Harmful” Cult that Believes in Aliens & Double Orgasms

From teaching that children living with disabilities (or who’ve been sexually abused) are being punished for their errors in a previous life to carrots being as dangerous as heroin, Serge Benhayon's teachings may seem incredible, outlandish and dangerous. But to his followers, he is a god-like figure with healing powers.
Despite an Australian Court finding that it was true to say his organisation, Universal Medicine, was “a socially harmful cult”, it has continued to attract followers around the world and tear families apart.
We hear from Esther Rockett who was taken to court by Universal Medicine and Robin Clifford whose family was destroyed by his ex-wife joining the group.

    • @Samara Lalia Abzu You can search about it ... I will also try to provide you links ... And as far as BJP is concerned ..that is obvious from his speeches and lectures that he defends their every policy they make ... And he is hyprocrite also ...he says in west that I don't believe in scriptures ,,and says I I don't believe in any religion ..I am a free thinker ..ete etc .. But in real he is a hindu ... He worships idols ...he worships shiva lingham ( p # n i s of shiva ),,, Drinking snake cobra ... Making people bow down under his feet ....what kind of person is he...he makes people bow down on his feet ....I mean seriously ??... He does all the hindu practices in his aashram ..and in west he appears like he is a free thinker .....😁😁😁... When I first watched him ..I was like wow....a good man ... But now I completely changed my opinion about him.. And the main cause was the he defends fascist hindu right wing ruling party BJP ..and he makes people bow down in his feets ....his superstitious beliefs ...

    • No, Sadhguru does not lead people into debauchery. His message is for you to find your highest truth...he never tells you what that is and doesn't involve any of these weird sexual practices. Dancing has always been a joyful spiritual experience in most cultures...just bcz he and those who listen to him are dancing is not indicative of cult behavior. If dancing, either alone or in a group, is cultists then consider me an elite cult leader. Dancing frees my tension and is good for my mind and body...that's it.

NEVER heard of this cult until now... but kind of reminds me of the late 80s/ early 90s cult where noth males & females had sexual parts REMOVED + wore cult clothing + laid down on folding cots so the PASSING COMET could whisk them up & away to another planet as it flew by overhead. Police found ALL the cult members dead from DRINKING kind of like the Jones Cult in S America.

Because they were or are opportunists in their life and are taking or have taken advantage of decent humans, so karma is biting them back by taking their wealth away... !! Hooray... !! Everything what is happening in this world is correct..! Wuhan virus might have been purposely created for China to dominate the world in the aftermath, but at the same time the world needed some form of redresssing. Of Course China will still pay for their action at some point...!! Life is a cycle....! What goes around comes around..! If you do good unto others , good will eventually come to you. ..!!

  • Actually many bankrupt businessmen, became gurus and some thought they were incarnations of God. Some gurus' disciples even named their masters super avatars of God. Obviously total nonsense, just to take advantage of innocent minds and abuse their powers on the vulnerables. Every human can realize and connect with the divine. No need to follow the so called gurus

Religion is formed of schemes who can get the all the money and get away with it legally by selling hope that can’t be proven to be fake or real it’s a great scheme. One perfect example is evangelicals their reason for their extreme wealth is because Jesus wanted it for them that is why you have to donate to him what a great scheme

  • None of the beliefs are unusual and are standard in New Age. Lower astral fauna leeching on imbalanced chakra areas (base chskra corresponding to sexual organs.) Even the alcohol one and that one is true btw. The men who become drunken wife beaters are "not themselves" beyond being drugged. Its a belief of mainstream Islam too and why they dont drink alcohol. The word alcohol comes from arabic, al ghul, where we get the term "goul" as a ghost . He's definitely a con man out to exploit people though through the New Age community...they dont go from zero to this in one step, they are usually already part of the wider NA community.

We all have freedom of choice, but the cost may be quite dear in the end. God has offered us an incredible gift, and all we must do is love him, ask for forgiveness , except Christ as our Savior and turn away from sin.
