Well I was wondering just it was possible for a person to be brain washed to be led by someone claiming to be a prophet of God?
I found out!
I was visiting my parents. Waiting for dinner on my social media when all of a sudden I hear:
“QR Codes and COVID codes are the mark of the beast”
I was really paying attention until my mother chirps “did you they are putting microchips in people in Sweden?”
I scowled “no they aren’t”
“Yes they are. It’s the mark of the Beast”
“No they aren’t. Stop watching that garbage. It’s all conspiracy theories”
“It’s from the bible”
Now this made me angry. “It’s not from the bible!”
“Yes it is! The mark of the Beast is from the Bible! It’s in Revelations!” My mom went on. “COVID vaccine is the mark of Satan! You’re all going to hell!”
I put down my phone. I was so flabbergasted and horrified by her words! By her belief. Did she really think that?
“Um COVID is not the mark of Satan. God creates all things. He created COVID as a test just like he used the Flood and various others to test our faith”
Well this enraged my mother. She began a rant on how I should read Revelations and the Bible.
“I have read the Bible! It says not to listen to false Prophets and worship False gods! That is what you are doing! That is false! That” I gestured to her phone “is nothing but conspiracy theories! A man pushing his conspiracies is garbage! Turn it off!”
My mom sputtered. “he isn’t fake!”
“Turn it off!” I insisted. “You’re listening to garbage! To a fake prophet!”
“This is what our late pastor preached! Are you saying he is a false prophet!”
I just couldn’t wrap my head around what she was telling me. “I hope he wasn’t. I hope your new pastor isn’t either!” I snapped.
“Well when The Rapture comes you will be left behind! Burning in hell! I hope if you do see Jesus you can explain why you didn’t listen!” My mom said smugly.
I snorted “when I see Jesus he will be praising me for not listening to this garbage! My eyes are open and I see and I hear everything clearly.”
It was so disturbing. Was this what cult members sounded like!
