Parents Set Up Kids for Cult Involvement

Many parents set up their kids for cult involvement and may do it in ignorance. I know this is a huge topic, but I want to point out some of the most obvious things to get the subject going: distraction, dreams, mysticism, wealth blessing, manipulation, pleasure seeking, flattery, ignorance, self-righteous conflict resolution and confusion.

Parents Using Distraction

When parents use distraction to "win" an argument, they are teaching their kids to avoid important topics with distraction. Consequently, when kids want their own way, they avoid a topic or use distraction when the topic comes up. This does not resolve important conflicts, discussions or doctrinal issues and destroys sound judgment by children who then use distraction on their parents and friends to get their way. Children can then avoid important doctrinal issues as they are distracted by cults who flatter them and make them feel good about their lives.

Parents and False Dreams

Parents can have dreams like everyone else. But when they dream something and claim it is of the LORD, this sets up expectations in children. When parents dreams don't come true, then children learn to not believe their parents. When parents actually teach their children something that is true from the LORD, such as God's commandments, then parents have lost credibility and their children don't even believe the commandments of God nor understand salvation by grace of God and faith in God then. This makes children susceptible to cults because they believe religion can be practiced by making up things from the LORD and by acting as an authority figure on something. They may figure one opinion is just as good as another.

Mysticism

Parents can use a specific voice and claim to have heard something from the LORD. When children don't feel that their parents are telling the truth, they may learn to ignore their parents mystical revelations in the future. Then when parents do have something to teach from the Bible, then the children just dismiss it and choose whatever lie they want instead. When cults use authoritarian voices, the children will be used to this and be comfortable in this environment. They may ignore the cult leaders on topics they disagree with and still be comfortable with this abusive environment because it is just like what they grew up with. Children can use this mysticism to justify themselves in their doings and tell their parents that they have heard from the LORD alos but God is telling them something different. See 1 Kings 22:22 about lying spirits.

Parents can make decisions based on money, such as "If I sell this stock at X, then God wants me to do X. This mystical, made-up decision as to setting God's mind creates an image of God that is mystical and not based on God's commandments that are clearly written in the Bible. The children can use justification when they say "My boyfriend got a better paying job, so God must be with him and want me to live with him since he can afford it now." This is obviously not the work of God but of the devil. People make up their own image and manipulate this image of God to justify their decisions. Imagine a guy saying "If this harlot looks at me, then God wants me to go live with her and share the gospel with her." Ridiculous. It's based on time and chance and contradicts the clear teachings of God.

More later.

To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. - Jesus Christ speaking to Saul, see Act 26:18, see Salvation through Jesus Christ.
