16. Cults build membership through shame and guilt.
Edited on Sun Aug-08-10 11:19 AM by Overseas
"We are miserable sinners too but we found redemption in our fellowship by doing these simple things and sticking together. Make our group's mission the most important thing in your life and we will cheer and applaud for you. We have compassion for one another and cheer each others' successes in our group.

But if you dare step away you will be consumed with guilt and shame and destroy yourself. We have seen it happen. Hang tight with us. Other people just don't understand."
