As we have witnessed on Corporate Frauds Watch, in 'MLM' cults, core-adherents accept the self-gratifying fairytale that only they will achieve the Utopia known as 'Total Financial Freedom,' if they duplicate the unquestioning and obedient example of their 'Upline,' and accept the 'MLM Gospel of Prosperity,' as total reality. These same deluded 'MLM' adherents also say that 'critics' and 'negatives' are 'losers' doomed to poverty.
This has led me to describe pernicious 'MLM Properity Gospel' cults as : 'Groups of previously-diverse individuals unified by their deluded belief in the economic equivalent of Creationism.' Indeed, when you know the perverted 'Protestant Christian' origins of pernicious 'MLM Prosperity Gospel' cults, like 'Amway,' it's a terrible irony that Gandhi, India's foremost leader in the struggle for independence from British Imperialism, first used non-violent civil disobedience in South Africa where, in the years leading up to WWI, he defied an unjust authoritarian system presented as a 'just, Christian-inspired democracy,' the leaders of which had perverted the 'Bible' to produce a self-gratifying fairytale of White, Anglo -Saxon Protestant moral and intellectual supremacy, and which, in 1948, was transformed into the 'Apartheid' regime.
Thus, I thought that your Indians readers should know what has been done with some of the money that has been stolen by the self-styled, superior, White , Anglo-Saxon Protestant bosses of the 'Amway' mob, from millions of ill-informed citizens of the Republic of India.
It is a matter of public record that Richard De Vos and Jay Van Andel (the joint instigators of 'Amway') were notable members of the 'Christian Reformed Church' http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
Christian_Reformed_Church_in_ North_America . This worldwide organization, is the American version of the Dutch/South African Protestant sect, the leaders of which enthusiatically assisted in creating 'Apartheid.' It is also a matter of public record that 'Amway's' instigators have given many millions of stolen dollars to fund what is commonly-referred to as the 'Religious Right'. Some of these contributions have found their way into the hands of the so-called 'Creation Research Society' - http://creationresearch.org/ vacrc.html http:// creationresearch.org/board. html - a centrally-controlled, essentially-totalitarian organization, the patriachal/matriachal leaders of which oblige their adherents to subscribe to the following, self-gratifying fairytale:
1. The Bible is the written word of God, and because it is inspired throughout, all its assertations are historically and scientifically true in the original autographs. To the student of nature, this means that the account of origins in Genesis is a factual presentation of simple truths.
2. All basic types of living things, including man, were made by direct creative acts of God during the Creation Week described in Genesis. Whatever biological changes have occurred since Creation Week have accomplished only changes within the original created kinds.
3. The great flood described in Genesis, commonly referred to as the Noachian Flood, was an historic worldwide event in its extent and effect.
4. We are an organization of Christian men and women of science who accept Jesus Christ as our lord and Saviour. The account of the special creation of Adam and Eve as one man and one woman and their subsequent fall into sin is the basis for our belief in the necessity of a Saviour for all mankind. Therefore, salvation can only come through accepting Jesus Christ as our Saviour.
In simple terms, the adherents of 'CRS' believe that, because they accept all the 'Christian Gospel' (including the 'Book of Genesis' and 'Creation') as total reality, only they will achieve the Utopia known as 'Heaven,' whilst all other humans are losers doomed to everlasting Hell, until they too accept all the 'Christian Gospel' (including the 'Book of Genesis' and 'Creation') as total reality.
