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.

David Millikan: Wow!!…What a cracking start to my first ever Universal Medicine presentation!

by Craig Robinson, Director of Ozskills Careers College, Geelong, Victoria, Australia

I want to thank Universal Medicine for the weekend’s adventure that I experienced in Lennox Head (12th October 2012).

After much thought, I decided to attend some Universal Medicine workshops with my girlfriend to gain insight into her world; it is such a unique part of her life that I would like to learn more about it for myself. We went first to the Friday night discussion where I was warmly greeted and asked to fill in the required forms and pay the prescribed fees ($5 only) …No different to any of the other seminars I’ve attended over my life.

Serge Benhayon, the presenter, came on stage and announced that he had been having a discussion over the past month with a prominent Uniting Church Minister (a self-proclaimed cult expert), as it had become apparent that some sources were painting Serge in the light of a cult leader. The banter was easygoing between them, with the Minister being introduced as David Millikan; it was stated that they had had quite detailed discussions relating to Millikan’s belief that Serge’s group was not a cult.

David Millikan: I Could Have Stayed At Home And Had Pizza!

by Simon Asquith, Byron Bay, Australia

My friends and I were ambushed tonight (Friday 12th October 2012).

Once a month I choose to attend a presentation by Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon: I choose to go because I like what he has to say. I could have gone to watch a band with some friends… I could have stayed home and had a pizza and watched a movie. But I felt like going, because I like the people there and what Serge Benhayon has to say. Continue reading “David Millikan: I Could Have Stayed At Home And Had Pizza!”

David Millikan – The Betrayal

by Bernadette, Self-employed, Victoria, Australia

Two thousand years ago a man from Nazareth was accused and put on trial for challenging the civil and religious order of the day.

On Friday evening, October 12, 2012 at Lennox Head Community Centre, a strangely similar series of events unfolded. Here we were, a group of citizens gathered together to listen to a man, Serge Benhayon, share an ancient message in the modern day. The message is not unlike that of Jesus’. It is a simple but profound message: that we have lost our way of love. The way back to love for our world, and ourselves, is first found ‘within’. If we learn to stop, feel and trust what really feels true, we will always make self-loving choices, which will reflect to make our world a more nurturing, equal and harmonious place.

David Millikan: A Man of God?

by Rod Harvey, Gold Coast, Australia

On Friday night 12th October 2012, I attended a presentation by Serge Benhayon from Universal Medicine.

Prior to the presentation Serge introduced David Millikan to the audience. David is a Uniting Church minister and self-appointed cult expert, and we were told that David and Serge had previously discussed their philosophical viewpoints at length.  Continue reading “David Millikan: A Man of God?”

David Millikan: Can It Be Possible?

by Dr Lyndy Summerhaze, Australia

Can it be possible in the year 2012 in Australia – a political democracy professing freedom of speech, that a Minister from the Uniting Church could walk into a Presentation about living a full, healthy and loving life and harass the gathered people and accuse them of being a cult? Yes, this did happen on October 12th at the Lennox Head Community Centre and I was there to witness it. Continue reading “David Millikan: Can It Be Possible?”

Is this True Evil?

by Sandra Dallimore, Melbourne, Australia

I used to think that true evil was the heinous crimes like murder, rape, genocide, child abuse and modern day slavery. Don’t get me wrong, these crimes ARE evil and there is no place for them in our society. But I now see that evil comes in a much more hidden and insidious form: the form of keeping truth from mankind.

In recent months, Universal Medicine, Serge Benhayon, his family and the many people who attend Universal Medicine events have experienced deception, lies and misrepresentation in and by the media. Universal Medicine has been called a ‘cult’, Serge Benhayon has been called a guru, and the people who attend the many presentations and courses, particularly the women, portrayed as mindless followers. Continue reading “Is this True Evil?”

David Millikan: Media Bullying at Universal Medicine Event

by Angela Perin, Brisbane, QLD, Australia

Why is it that in a country where bullying in schools and in the workplace is not acceptable, where domestic violence and abuse are not tolerated, and where assault and rape are chargeable offences, that the media, or individuals acting on behalf of a media organisation, can be allowed to bully and abuse without the same accountability?

In a country which prides itself on free speech, why is it that a man and an organisation who simply and consistently present another way of living – a way of living that is not harming to self or others, and that supports responsibility in taking care of the body – find themselves in the middle of a witch hunt?

David Millikan: Man of God for Sale

by Stephen, Lismore, Australia

Last night (12th October 2012) I went to a talk by Serge Benhayon of Universal Medicine on the subject of Esoteric Medicine at Lennox Head Community Centre.

Serge invited an unscheduled guest, David Millikan, onto the stage. He had turned up on the night and asked if he might ask some questions of the audience about their experiences with Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon. David introduced himself as a Uniting Church Minister with a degree in Theology: previously Millikan had been meeting and talking with Serge extensively and had stated that Universal Medicine did not fit the criteria for being a ‘cult’.  Continue reading “David Millikan: Man of God for Sale”
