Please Tell Me The Truth Ministries was able to engage with members of the cult known as Scientology. They wanted us to take a “stress-test” using a lie detector machine-like device. However, we came in with our own test. We started off the question by countering their stress-test by seeing if they passed the test of God’s law.
This group apparently denies all absolutes and is stuck in the world of relativism. However, our brother in Christ did an excellent job refuting this respectfully. He used a simple analogy to show the absurdity of saying “what’s true for me is true for me.” He explained how someone saying a bag of rocks will save them from jumping out of a parachute is not true because they said so! Rather, the truth is that they need a parachute. Similarly, no matter what your belief may be, you still need Jesus Christ as your Savior (John 14:6).
Scientology was started by the science-fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard in 1954. The religion is based off of his book Dianetics and believes that humans are immortal spiritual beings (called Thetans) which are trapped in mortal bodies. According to Scientologists, humans have been scarred by harmful life experiences called engrams which can be healed by their organization.1
The goal of Scientology is to get rid of all engrams and become “clear.” Once one has become clear, they can pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to become Operating Thetans and have control over matter, energy, space, and time.2 3
Hopefully this video helps you expose the relativistic views of others so they can come to know the true God, Jesus Christ. Always remember that our apologetic and evangelistic encounters should be centered on the Gospel, not man’s philosophy.
