How do you know when someone is being brainwashed by their"church". I say church lightly because i'm not sure what this is that shes going to. The pastor does nothing but scream and yell and work himself up into a frenzy. I've seen a person on the floor that they were trying to heal. I've heard him tell people that Jesus will heal their health, when in reality they can't be healed. My friend has changed, she's so different, not the person she used to be before she started going to this church. It seems like she's being sucked in to whatever this is, i dont even know what religion he preaches, it's kinda hard to to tell with all the yelling he does. I honestly believe him and his wife recruit people and take advantage of them, Just curious if anyone knows about these kind of places.

One is brainwashed when they accept EVERYTHING the church teaches without QUESTION and is willing to do ANYTHING to defend the church.

Also when they believe it is wrong to question the word of god or their church.

Many times God through Jesus Christ will wash out the demonic spirits and place God`s living spirit in the person who gives His life to God , where God has His spirit which is the Goodness spirit ..........Still there are religions of the world who don`t have God and man may brain wash people with their passions

Please keep in mind the religious leaders of Jesus' day were corrupted, so it should Not 'Sue'prise anyone that is happening today. Jesus forewarned us at Matthew 15:9. Jesus also forewarned us so we can be forearmed that MANY would come ' in his name ' but prove false at Matthew 7:21-23.

Also, we are informed that after the death of the Apostles that false teachers ( Dressed in sheep's clothing ) would be fleecing the flock of God - Acts 20:29-30. This is in harmony with Jesus story about the genuine ' wheat ' Christians would be growing together with the fake ' weed/tares' Christians until the harvest time.
As we know a harvest comes at the end of a growing season. We are nearing that end ' time of separation ' to take place on Earth as mentioned at Matthew 25:31-33,37,40 before Jesus, as Prince of Peace, ushers in global Peace on Earth among persons of goodwill (Not badwill)

Could one take legal action? It sounds like this woman is being damaged - there would likely be more. May be difficult to prove though.

I wonder about the person who started a thread a day or two ago about leaving his/her Jehovah's Witness church. Seemed like he/she was totally spooked. I commented by their words that they sounded as though they were under a spell by their church leaders and maybe family (I avoided the word "brainwashed"). Then the thread quickly and mysteriously disappeared. I can only guess that they freaked out about leaving the church, and commenting here, and begged to have it pulled ASAP.
