Cults and their devastation and destruction
Legalisms, manipulations, and the controlling of others has been around since sometime after the fall. I could probably say that most of us know of someone who is a leader of, or in a Sociological cult (lead by a leader who uses psychologically controlling ways on their group of people by intimidation, shunning, punishment, manipulations, etc.), or someone who is a leader of, or in a Theological cult (same dynamics, but with a religion mixed in).
Both of these types of people with evil intentions cause great devastation and destruction in so many people's lives.
This philosopher's quote, "To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize", is a great question to ask yourself if you have an inkling that you or someone else you love may be in a dangerous relationship.
If you have an answer for Voltaire's statement, then this is called a RED FLAG. Your relationship with this person or persons is dangerous. You need to begin to pull away and ask a godly someone who is outside of this controlling person's influence some very pointed questions. You have most probably been controlled and manipulated, and you are not thinking clearly.
Godly, wise counsel is what you need to consider to be able to truly escape from the manipulator's grasp.
"May mercy and peace and love be multiplied to you."
