Awesome Book! Confused & hurt? Get this book!  Dec 14, 2009
This book will help you if you are confused & hurting!

This was one of the first books I read after exiting a controlling bible cult that put into words, the mind games that I knew existed...but wasn't able to put my finger on or verbalize. From the first Chapter "The Discipleship Game" to the last I was mesmerized...I felt this lady was writing about ME & many of my experiences I had in an abusive bible cult I had been a member of for over 19 years.

The author, Mary Alice Chrnalogar had been a member of a controlling church group, so she really understands because she has experienced spiritual abuse herself.

While reading the book, I would insert the word "pastor" for "leaders", doing this just helped me, as the group I was in had only 1 leader & he was called "pastor".

This book gave me comfort in knowing that indeed, I wasn't crazy! She has check lists at the end of the chapters that really helped me, because I could visually see that "WOW!" at the end of the "Authority Unlimited" chapter, I checked 10 out of 11 that applied to the church I had been in ! It was empowering & validating to see the proof right in front of me. Of course the proof was in my experiences in the abusive group, but her book helped me to honestly SEE & make sense out of what took place.

Here's a quote from the book"

Chapter 8: Vicious Information Control - Page 139...


Leaders get you to believe that they don't interpret the bible, but just "teach what is in the bible" - making the bible synonymous with THEIR interpretation!

Leaders teach you to think that, if you want to be truly committed to Jesus, you must believe every word THEY teach about the bible.

Leaders prompt you to think that you are probably committing sins of pride or
rebelliousness if you don't believe every word of the bible as THEY interpret it for you.

....These are some of the ingredients for controlling...."

At the end of the book there is an Appendix, called, "A Summary of Abuses" this list was extremely helpful too.

"Twisted Scriptures" allowed me to see that I was manipulated & yes, I was a victim of an abusive, controlling religious group. It helped me to understand & make sense of what I experienced.

While reading her book I had many, many "Wow!" moments.

I have read this book over & over.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who has family in a controlling group/church & anyone who wants to understand the mind manipulations of folks who are in cults. I didn't think I was joining a "cult"...I thought I was joining a "true church". Over time the oppression became stifling & I thought I was going mad. I searched to make sense of what I had experienced & this book helped me tremendously! If you are in a church or group & you are "struggling" & you feel something just "isn't right" please get this book!

I wish I had this book 25 years ago...I would have saved myself & my family from a whole lot of pain!

very informative. I just didn't understand why the author didn't get into the twisted scripture concerning the tithes and offerings.
Useful guide to what Bible says about leadership  Feb 21, 2009
The author assumes if you are reading Twisted Scriptures you have been part of cult-like Christian disciple groups. I have never been involved in such a group but I have been shunned within a mainline church. This may be why I had difficulty finishing this book. My own experience while devastating was not as severe as the cases Chrnalogar describes. Although as a psychologist I am well acquainted with Stanley Milgram's experiments on obedience (Obedience to Authority: An Experimental View (Perennial Classics)), I still had difficulty understanding why individuals would trust another person so completely. The author does not address this issue even though she acknowledges these groups select out anyone they believe will not be compliant. If we are to prevent this kind of abuse we need to understand how individuals become vulnerable and teach them to be more like those who were able to walk away. Chrnalager's book may give individuals caught in this evil web information that will help them escape. I found the discussion of what the Bible tells us about leadership particularly helpful as I try to organize my own thoughts about what went wrong at the churches where I was emotionally and spiritually abused.
Every fundamentalist - Evangelical must read!!!  Oct 2, 2008
Every fundamentalist - Evangelical Christian should read this book!!!!
It's simply something Christians are...should I say it..... "kept in
the dark about".

When you look back at Christian history and see how many thousands of innocent Christians have been blackmailed, raped, tortured, mutilated and murdered, by those professing to be doing it in the "Name of Christ", you know you are observing a serious problem.

What exactly was the true motivation for those abuses?

The desire to retain power over people and use them as a resource, is always the true motivation behind abuse.
However this was cleverly cloaked under a disguise of "We are the Vicars of God".

So ask yourself the question....has fallen Adam evolved such that we
Christians don't have to consider the same motivators are at work in our
churches and in our ministries today?

For those who dare to take an unbiased look under the hood, the answer
is clear.

Why are so many Christians given to automatically assume that an
ordained minister is:
1)More spiritual then they
2)More mature in the things of God than they
3)More pure in motivations than they

The reason that the vast majority of Christians assume these things is because the message (the ministry is the "good guy")is repeated every Sunday.
"A lie told often enough becomes truth" Vladimir Lenin.

I tell you the exact same spirits that moved those bygone "officers of
the church" to blackmail, rape, torture and murder are still very much
Alive today. Its just that our eyes are not willing to see.

We assume the motivations of Christian ministries are modulated by the
spirit of the Lord, as this would be theoretically true.
It is similarly true that our federal representatives govern out of pure unselfish motivations.
We know how far from reality that is, but we never allow ourselves to connect the same dots when it comes to the church. And we neglect this, to our own damage.

To be forewarned is to be forearmed.
When we allow ourselves to become vulnerable to certain individuals, we give them permission to take advantage of us.
As the Proverbs say: The fool believes every word.

When we understand the vast majority of Cult leaders evolve out of
Fundamentalist and Evangelical backgrounds, we should be seeing the "RED LIGHT" flashing.

Mary here lays out all of the scriptures that are subtly miss-applied in
order to get church members to promote ministry.
She shows how these have been absorbed within different arenas of Christendom.

She digs down to the exegetical level on some of the scriptures, but this is done using "street-language" so its easily laid out.

You need to be armed with this information.
The next time somebody points their finger at you and declares "don't
touch God's anointed!", you will know how to stand in "balanced" truth, and not be manipulated.

The bride needs to wake up and smell the coffee!!
Mary is sounding the alarm.

Thank you greatly Mary for this book!!!
I only wish I had it 30 years ago.
Wow...  Jun 15, 2008
Very interesting look... I've been approached in many of these ways at many times. It's an important work for overcoming the chains of "group think" and coming out with a relationship with the Father rather than the group.
