Are you really a truth seeker, or just saying that you are? This may be a test of more than just faith for you.
This website is dedicated to those who left Eckankar, are considering leaving it, and those who are considering joining the group. It is written by former members of this organization who have been fortunate enough to come to a conclusion that it is a scam. You will find solid evidence for this on this blog site — evidence that Eckankar can in no way refute and no Eckankar official will dare to challenge in an open debate.
Being former Eckankar members, we know this organization from the inside and understand the nature of all of its teachings, from waking dreams to meetings with the "inner master." We will define for you what these phenomena really are, within the context of logic and psychology instead of blind faith in a shaky belief system.
Certainly, there will always be people who WANT to believe in strange, unprovable things. Indeed, such people may even die for their beliefs, no matter how strange and erroneous. Such adherents cling to their faith because they have built their identity and their lives around the teachings and therefore are deeply afraid to leave the system in fear of losing themselves. If you are such an adherent — a defender of the preposterous, a devotee of a leader whom you do not even know personally — then do as you wish and dismiss all of this proof. But if you really are a truth-seeker as you claim to be, then you will read and digest and understand what we are saying here. It is your choice.
There is no doubt, and we will not be polite here, that Eckankar is a scam started by an illiterate, ill-spoken, backwoods simpleton from Kentucky named Paul Twitchell.
Eckankar is a waste of your time and money. It pretends to be a religion, but fails miserably to find legitimacy because it is borne of fraud, deception and manipulation.
We offer you the facts about Eckankar and its leaders.
