Weaknesses Exploited by Cults

There are several human weaknesses exploited by cults:

Forgetfulness

Because people who listen to cults do not often take notes, it's hard to catch them in their tricky wording of things. A way to combat this is to ask if it's OK to record them. If they are afraid, that tells you a lot about them. Jesus preached openly. Many ministers record their sermons.

Fleshly desire to Sin

People want to hear a message that justifies their desire to sin. To counteract this, talk to people who live in sin and see if they are happy. Read about reward of sin in Bible.

Pride

People love to be flattered. But flattery destroys. Read about flattery in the Bible to counter-act your desire for praise.

Fantasy to kill other pain they are going through

Complacency

Laziness

Desire for Approval of Others

Lack of Discipline

Selfishness

Having a college degree does not protect you from being involved in a cult.

Did people with college degrees exercise sound judgment and see past Hitler's brainwashing?

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.
