Sometimes you need a novel to break through the cultist mental manipulation?

Linda Smith wrote recently,

I just read an article on your webpage regarding Catholic Lay Movements with cultist attributes. Some former members of these movements questioned why some bishops are so slow to take seriously their concerns about these organizations.

A Course in Miracles (ACIM)

All you need is love….love is all you need. –the Beatles

A Course in Miracles or cultism?

Dialogue Ireland does not actually take a view as to whether the beliefs of the ACIM represent Religion or a Philosophy. Also whether they are opposed to another religion, whether they are heretical from a Catholic perspective or from an Evangelical point of view they are unbiblical is not our issue. We are concerned when we receive requests for support from families of persons who seem to have lost the plot. Whereas they were emotionally available and could be part of a family and the give and take that involves, now they find the person is withdrawn on another planet so to speak. They are also atomised believing they are no longer an incarnate being, but rather a separate gnostic spiritual individual with no connectedness to their wife, husband, daughter or son. To use an illustration. They were like honey from a honey comb deeply interrelated to those around them in their family or community. They still retained their individuality, but that was not a problem at that point. Now they are like individual marbles which are in a box and the box is dropped and the individual marbles go all over the place. They have no deep rooted connectivity and seem to be victims of a kind of DOS attack.

There seems then to be some influence and people involved seem to lack coherence and grounding in reality?

What is your experience?
