This is an article that was published in 1977 before some of the larger scandals broke. I would like to point out that even at that point, Lutheran clergymen in the article mention that Jack Hickman used “severe manipulation . . . sometimes leading to pyschological disorder” among those who laid their trust in him.
Jack Hickman always controlled the cult through his favorite tool, fear. The easiest way to manipulate your followers is to make them afraid and tell them that they only way they will be safe is to do what you tell them to do. To this day the cult members are controlled through the use of fear. In upcoming posts I will discuss this in more detail.
The majority of the section that deals with Jack and the cult in this article is on the last page. However, they do discuss the cult on several other pages throughout the article. Here is the link: The Jews for Jesus (and the others too) are out to get your kids
