Information on Cults
Brought to you by a former member of GAC!

When I first started questioning whether Gospel Assembly Church was the "truth" or not, I started reading a lot on "cults." Right away, it struck me how similar these "cults" were to GAC! They all believed that ONLY THEY had the truth, just like GAC; that everyone else was damned; yet they have NO proof that what they say is true. Check out the websites below, and you will see the similarities.

"All the leaders of the cults, from Joseph Smith of the Mormons to Sun Myung Moon of the Moonies, feel that they were chosen by God to do some special task or to know some hidden meaning of Scripture, or to become some cherished savior of mankind..."

Sounds like Lloyd L. Goodwin to me...

Characteristics of a CULT
I checked off every one of these when I took this short test with Gospel Assembly in mind.

Frequently Asked Questions About CULTS
An excellent page! If you read nothing else about cults, READ THIS; especially the "cult leaders" and "cult members" sections.

"It hurts"
An article by Jan Groenveld. Every ex-member and current member of GAC should read this short, healing article.

Ex-Cult Support Mailing List
This is an excellent email discussion list offering support to former members of cults.

Rick Ross
"This web site was created to offer the public a resource of information concerning controversial and/or potentially unsafe groups-- as well as some groups that have been called "cults". Here you will find an archive that contains thousands of documents, which includes news stories, related articles, reports, letters, court records, book excerpts and personal testimonies."

Cult Awareness & Information Centre
"A goldfish living in a bowl that is painted black on the outside will never know it lives in a bowl unless someone takes it out and shows it the rest of the world. Mindsets can be like that - locked into a `thinking box', unable to see outside because the web of beliefs is so all-encompassing."
