PowerPlayPause began as a simple project to help people like my friend from Bible school in Japan who got caught up in the Bethel cult in Redding, California.
The idea was to simply take Bethel’s ministry videos and give them pause for thought, and apply logical conclusions to the statements found within, to show how far out and often lunatic Bethel’s leaders and chosen speakers are.
It was then left for a year or two after having touched on a couple of non-Bethel people too. But then in 2018 it became the place to defend the innocent who a Satanic cult leader called Jacob Prasch (and his gang of idiots ‘Servus Christi‘ and Amos Farrell) began falsely accusing and slandering across social media.
Subsequent to Amos Farrell’s attempts to defend his cult leader, 2 videos specifically deal with the excellent research of social psychologist Leon Festinger who studied the phenomenon of cult members becoming cemented in their thinking even when their very beliefs are publicly proven wrong (they are Ep.12, Ep.33).
The website also has some resources about the Witness Lee personality cult known as The Local Church, and two types of information on the sudden prevalence in churchless YouTube Bible/prophecy teachers like L.A. Marzulli and the crowd of salesman hawking prophecy literature on the TV show Prophecy Watchers.
If your friends or family get involved in any of these cults or fool ways of thinking, please send links to the videos on this website and have them weigh them up…
