Mind Control is also known as manipulation, MK, menticide, thought reform, brainwashing, mental control, coercive persuasion, coercive control, malignant use of group dynamics, re-education, etc. MANY religious leaders, group leaders, and wanna be leaders are using various psychological techniques online and on their pulpits covertly for their own benefit. Mind Controllers reduce their subject’s ability to think critically and independently, to allow the introduction of new thoughts and ideas into the subject’s mind as well as to change his or her attitudes, values, and beliefs.
Manipulative Psychology is one of the most common methods of mind control being used on social media platforms today. All of us have innate gifts and talents, yet many people haven’t realized or even believe that they have spiritual gifts-but those who have realized their gifts (or are well learned) and are desperate for recognition and power showcase their gifts and manipulate weak minded people to see them as spiritual anomalies. These highly gifted people create false physical images of themselves by using various photo-shopping applications, staged background scenes and cosmetics making themselves appear to be physically more attractive than they actually are to lure unsuspecting people to their social media pages/ministries. Many people go as far as “buying likes”, or creating false identities then “following” and “liking” their own pages creating an illusion to be popular Social Media personalities with a large following which may/may not persuade you to follow them as well. After you’ve been tricked into following them, the act of “Monkey see Monkey do” usually comes afterwards, depending on how strong your mind is.
Cults and sects are formed by the implementation of deception and mind control techniques to take advantage of the weaknesses and strengths of their followers to satisfy the needs and desires of the cult leaders themselves. A great example of this is the true story of Cult leader Jim Jones and the Jonestown Massacre.
A very dangerous implementation of mind control is when it’s used in a one-on-one cult in intimate relationships where one person abuses their status or knowledge to manipulate and exploit the other person such as in a teacher/student, pastor/worshiper, husband/wife situation. This cultic relationship is a version of the larger cults, and may be even more destructive because all the time and attention is directed towards only one person to brainwash him to believe that the perpetrator is a spiritual anomaly, with spiritual abilities that are unobtainable or very difficult to obtain by other people. They spend a considerable amount of time boasting of their accomplishments, spiritual abilities and showcasing their biblical/spiritual knowledge [which is usually quite impressive] and giving their victim the impression that they are overwhelmingly concerned about their “spiritual growth.” They tend to latch onto their victims very quickly. These type of mind controllers use cleaver tactics to gain information from their victims by asking them seemingly innocent questions such as,”what are your prayer points so that I can fast and pray for you?” They lure their targets to stay in contact with them by showing signs of concern by saying things like, “God is showing me something spectacular and I want to take you along with me,” or ” Your spiritual growth means a lot to me.” These mind-controllers are good at what they do AND THEY KNOW IT, they use seemingly innocent religious language and access their targets thoroughly to determine if he/she are good candidates to be brainwashed.
False prophets/leaders and wanna be leaders use a combination of words and group pressures, packaged in such a way that it allows a manipulator to create dependency in his/her followers, making their decisions for them while allowing them to think that they are independent and making their own decisions. The person being mind controlled is not aware of the influence process, nor of the changes occurring within themselves.
Mind Control is a subtle and insidious process. Subtle, meaning that the individual is not aware of the extent of the influence being imposed upon them. In this way they make small changes over time, believing that they are making decisions for themselves, when in fact all the decisions are being made for them. Insidious because it’s intended to entrap and do harm.
Mind Control is a process, it does not happen in an instant. It takes time, although the length of time will depend on such factors as the methods used, the skill of the manipulator, the duration of exposure to the techniques and other social and personal factors. Nowadays manipulators are sufficiently skilled that it can occur in only a few hours.
Mind Control is more subtle and sophisticated because the person doing the manipulations is often considered a friend or a teacher, so the victim is not actually trying to defend themselves. In fact, he or she may be a ‘willing’ participant, believing that the manipulator has their best interests in mind, they often provide private information willingly, which is then used against them to continue the mind control.
This makes mind control as dangerous, if not more so, than physical coercion.
Mind Control is popular in today’s society and it’s not new! It’s so popular now that courses are actually being given on how to use mind control techniques to use other people to “get what you want” from them by controlling their mind!!!
False prophets/teachers use these techniques, destroying the lives of others for their own selfish benefits simply because they can, they want to control you to do what they want and because they have no conscience!
People of God WAKE UP FROM YOUR SLUMBER! You are being brainwashed and controlled by agents of darkness who only PRETEND to care about your soul. If they really cared about your soul they would tell you to NOT FOLLOW THEM, DON’T PRAISE THEM but REPENT DAILY and seek GOD and PURSUE HOLINESS even if it costs you every material thing.
