John Travolta's Problem: From Christian Research Network

These are just a few famous people giving millions to Scientology. What a waste!
Here is an intersting article on Scientology. From the little I know about the cult, they know how to ruin your life if you choose to "expose" them. When we went to Evagecamp 2008, we met with some who were protesting outside the Scientology local headquarters in Buffalo, NY.
They were an erie bunch of kids who felt they had to wear masks to so those inside the SIFI building wouldn't video record them for later reference. Indeed those inside the SIFI building were recording them protesting and us witnessing to the protesters. The kid I talked to actually listened to what I was saying and took a Bible from me. It was a good ending because he was trying his best to get away from me.
“You Will Die Like Men”–Testimonial Against ScientologyPublished January 2nd, 2009 by Dwayna in Knowledge of God, Scientology, Scriptural Authority, The Holiness of God, The Law of Sin
“Before Me there was no God formed, and there will be none after Me.” Isaiah 43:10
Scientology teaches that people can become gods. Still, with the thousands of dollars that John Travolta and his wife have spent on becoming “Thetans”, John Travolta said today was the “worst day” of his life because of his son’s death. [source: CNN]. Apparently, Thetans are not omnipotent after all. L. Ron Hubbard taught that when a soul is “ready to expire” he or she is simply “ready to be recycled” in the “nearest maternity ward” to come back through reincarnation. You would think that with all the time and marketing the Travoltas have invested in Scientology, they could have gotten more for their money. Yet, the price for following “the prince of the power of the air” is never cheap.
The Bible gives the following warning to imaginary Thetans:
“Nevertheless, you will die like men…” Psalm 82:7
For more on the beliefs of Scientology (including healing rooms, rooms where people sit in silence staring at one another, and rooms where people sit across from each other barking like dogs), go to my article …Inside the Corridors of Scientology.

The missing element in every human 'solution'
is an accurate definition of the creature.

The way we define 'human' determines our view of self,
others, relationships, institutions, life, and future. Many
problems in human experience are the result of false
and inaccurate definitions of humankind premised
in man-made religions and humanistic philosophies.

Human knowledge is a fraction of the whole universe.
The balance is a vast void of human ignorance. Human
reason cannot fully function in such a void; thus, the
intellect can rise no higher than the criteria by which it
perceives and measures values.

Humanism makes man his own standard of measure.
However, as with all measuring systems, a standard
must be greater than the value measured. Based on
preponderant ignorance and an egocentric carnal
nature, humanism demotes reason to the simpleton
task of excuse-making in behalf of the rule of appe-
tites, desires, feelings, emotions, - and glands.

Because man, hobbled in an ego-centric predicament,
cannot invent criteria greater than himself, the humanist
lacks a predictive capability. Thus, his man-made criteria
rises no higher than eyebrows - and too often, no higher
than pubic hair! Without instinct or transcendent criteria,
humanism cannot evaluate options with foresight and
vision for progression and survival. Lacking foresight,
man is blind to potential consequence and is unwittingly
committed to mediocrity, collectivism, averages, and re-
gression - and worse. Humanism is an unworthy worship.

The void of human ignorance can easily be filled with
a functional faith while not-so-patiently awaiting the
foot-dragging growth of human knowledge and behav-
ior. Faith, initiated by the Creator and revealed and
validated in His Word, the Bible, brings a transcend-
ent standard to man the choice-maker. Other philo-
sophies and religions are man-made, humanism, and
thereby lack what only the Bible has:

1.Transcendent Criteria and
2.Fulfilled Prophetic Validation.

The vision of faith in God and His Word is survival
equipment for today and the future. Only the Creator,
who made us in His own image, is qualified to define
us accurately.

Human is earth's Choicemaker. Psalm 25:12 He is by
nature and nature's God a creature of Choice - and of
Criteria. Psalm 119:30,173 His unique and definitive
characteristic is, and of Right ought to be, the natural
foundation of his environments, institutions, and re-
spectful relations to his fellow-man. Thus, he is orien-
ted to a Freedom whose roots are in the Order of the
universe. selah
