What are the characteristics of a Cult?

Cults…I talk a lot about the YFZ Ranch and the FLDS, but what are some of the characteristics of a cult?

  • mind control…use of bizarre religious or secular ideas to enforce the obedience of followers
  • emotional disclosure…participants are encouraged to disclose private, emotionally important information…while the leaders do not share emotional information with the larger group
  • recruitment…participants are encouraged/expected to go out and recruit others to join the cult organization using deceptive and manipulative tactics
  • restriction from all outside ideas and influences ( no radio, television, computer/internet, newspapers)
  • Claims that the outside world is evil and will lead to the death or damnation of anyone who betrays the cult
  • Participants are manipulated to believe that they can not survive without all the cult offers them
  • leaders are a few men who directly benefit from the cult by abuse, manipulation, threat of harm, sexual control of women and intricate financial arrangements
