The Truth About.....
This page will describe for you how an innocent and well meaning intentional religious community lost its way and instead turned into a Destructive Cult. It is meant to be of benefit to ACC members and their families, former members, those who might be considering joining the group and to anyone else who has had to deal with a Destructive Cult.
God has given us the abilities to discern truth and to think critically. Don't be afraid to use them.
Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God; for many false prophets have gone out into the world.

Inclusion of these links does not in any way imply that I am in agreement with the information presented on those sites. The links are provided as an informational resource and do not necessarily reflect the views of the site master.
People tend to get very emotional when they discover a loved one has joined a destructive cult. They sometimes become desperate to save their loved ones from the cults influence. This desperation has in a few cases led people to resort forcible abduction and violent "deprogramming" techniques in order to get their loved ones back. While such instances are extremely rare - far more rare than cult leaders would like us to beleive - they do sometimes happen. Desperate people can do desperate things. I would like to make it clear that I do not endorse or support this practice or anyone who is involved in it. Illegal, forcible intervention's are morally wrong and often totally ineffective. People who engage in this sort of behaviour are often no better than the cult leaders themselves. Sometimes they are worse. I believe in legal, non-coercive counseling where cult members are provided with information so they can learn about mind control, cults and can explore the discrepancies in their groups doctrine, practices and behavior.
In case you had not figured it out already, this site is in no way endorsed or condoned by Gabriel of Sedona or the Aquarian Concepts Community. In fact Gabriel would probably like to kick my ass because of the dent this site has put in his bottom line. At the very least I am sure he has banished my soul to some demon planet somewhere.
