Cult tactics haven't changed in a long time.
Like Joe Smith, this "pastor" used the time-honored cult playbook.

This is why you can never surrender your thinking and common sense to any church. And why family should always, always come before any church.

Or any other person/group. Churches aren't the only cults...

Star R. Scott used to advertise his temple and weekly TV show on WYAH, an independent TV station owned by Pat Robertson. I grew up in southeastern Virginia, where WYAH was located. WYAH was an interesting channel because it aired a lot of syndicated sitcoms, but would edit out all the cuss words. And there was always religious programming and "wholesome" shows from the 60s. Little did I know back then how toxic some of the religious stuff really is.

Edited to add... in this video, Scott mentions Mormons as belonging to a cult.

It's interesting how most cult leaders, including JS and BY, sexually abuse some of their members. I believe that they use sex as the ultimate control tactic. It's sad how many lives and relationships are destroyed by joining cults, including the morg.

Interestingly enough, it's noty only religious nutters who do this:-

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lambeth_slavery_case

>Following a police raid on the Memorial Centre in March 1978, which the group claimed involved "over 200 police", including officers from the Special Patrol Group, "under the pretext of searching for drugs", the Workers' Institute effectively went underground, with the remaining members being convinced to end all contact with others and maintain an intense level of secrecy.
