I was 9 Years Old when my Family joined a Real Cult

I find it absolutely ridiculous that sections of the media are calling Universal Medicine a cult and Serge Benhayon a cult leader – how far away are they from the reality of who Serge is, and how Universal Medicine contributes to society?

When I was nine years old my family joined a cult my uncle started. My uncle (the cult leader) was a well known and respected medical doctor practising in Melbourne who decided his time would be better spent inciting fear, intimidation and paranoia amongst a group of people who were lost and searching for an escape from life. When I reflect on this time it brings up such feelings of paralysing fear, debilitating confusion and total lack of self – this is true abuse. I remember my uncle used to say he was higher up than Jesus. Continue reading “I was 9 Years Old when my Family joined a Real Cult”

The Moonies, Serge Benhayon & Universal Medicine: My Cult Experience

by Anne Scott, Auckland, New Zealand

My stomach and bowels were heaving: I felt completely devoid of energy. I was feeling pretty desperate. I had what backpackers in 1980 called ‘Montezuma’s revenge’. I arrived thus at what I thought was the youth hostel in Denver, having come straight from the airport and a flight from Mexico.

Except it was no longer a youth hostel. Unbeknownst to me, the building had been purchased by the Denver branch of the Reunification Church, known to many as the “Moonies” because it was founded, and was headed at that time, by a Korean man, Ken Moon (who has only very recently died). I had inadvertently placed myself into the hands of an organisation that I would now, without question, describe as a cult, as a result of the attempt to ‘convert’, ‘control’ and ‘brainwash’ me.

A Convenient Truth Most Foul: Journalism

by Sarah Cloutier, London UK

A lot of people say they want the truth. They say they want honesty in their lives and straight talking. They say they admire people who are not afraid to hold back.

In my experience, on a daily basis, most people don’t walk the talk. They are only honest when it suits their needs. They find their own truths that pander to their requirements on that particular day. Continue reading “A Convenient Truth Most Foul: Journalism”

Being True to Myself: Taking Responsibility for my own Choices

by Trish Mazur, Marine Charter Co-ordinator, Gold Coast, Australia

I would personally like to thank Serge Benhayon (and all the Universal Medicine practitioners).

Reading statements like Serge Benhayon is ‘anti-exercise’ or ‘anti-mainstream medicine’ just does not correspond with the experience I have had with Serge and Universal Medicine (UniMed) at all.

Firstly, Serge doesn’t tell me what to do or think (sometimes I wish he did – but that wouldn’t be me deciding what is right for me!): neither does he say Western medicine is bad – far from it. What he has made me aware of is that I have responsibility for my own health and way of living. Combine that with Western medicine, and the way I see it, I have the best of both worlds.

There Are Some Things That Don’t Make Sense…

by Emily Newman, Mackay, QLD

There are some things that don’t make sense…

Doing research for high school, I came across so many history books that show the slaughter of young children, women and men in the name of Christianity. Yet one of the commandments is ‘Thou shalt not kill’… hmmm, does this not make sense to anyone else? Continue reading “There Are Some Things That Don’t Make Sense…”

Serge Benhayon and Me

by Ray Karam, Goonellabah, NSW

I have read a lot that has been said about Serge Benhayon; some truth and some just outright rubbish.

I would like to share how my life is at this moment, in fact today. I came home this afternoon to my family after working an 11-hour day. I was greeted in the driveway by our three young children, all eager to share their day and themselves with me. Continue reading “Serge Benhayon and Me”
