Destructive Religious Groups
Members of destructive cults make it their business to “run into” potential recruits on a campus in students’ natural surroundings. Any combination of the following signs may indicate cult involvement: If you are approached, remember that you have the right to say “no” and to refuse all invitations and overtures. Do not try to debate with cult members or recruits. It’s never productive, since they have decided in advance that anyone outside their group is wrong, sinful, or an enemy. Exercise good judgment and be careful with groups which are suspiciously vague about their affiliation and purposes. Remember that it is characteristic of destructive cults to use “front” names for their organizations, publications, and group residences, so their identities are not always immediately apparent.
