Scientology Falsely Claims to be Compatible with Christianity

  1. What Christians Need to Know about Scientology, Wakefield, ex-Scientologist, 1991. [Note: Hubbard's authorship of the "Jesus was pedophile" version of OT VIII is disputed]. Margery Wakefield also wrote Road to Xenu, a narrative account of life in Scientology. A review of his material makes it clear that Hubbard knowingly lies to low-level Scientologists about being compatible with Christianity. It is painfully clear that Christian Scientologists must eventually renounce Christianity to reach Scientology's highest levels.
  2. The Michael Pattinson affidavit details how a celebrity ex-OT7 was swindled and how Scientology attempted to coerce him into believing that Scientology is the only valid religion.
  3. Araine Jackson's account of OT VIII lists one of the steps as "reading History of Man and getting very thoroughly checked out on it". In this case, "thoroughly checked out" means understand and believe it to the satisfaction of the Case Supervisor. To achieve OT VIII, one must believe that organized religion cannot explain the relationship between spirit and the material world, effectively renouncing them. After attaining OT VIII, the Scientologist has come to accept that God not only does not exist, but also believes that God is just another implant that must be audited out like any other false memory. In this manner, Scientology binds the minds of its believers, then warehouses their spirits for the remainder of their life. From the Christian point of view, Hubbard's system is evil to the extreme; Scientology is a system of spiritual treadmills away from God.

"Anyway, Everyman is then shown to have been crucified so don't think that it's an accident that this crucifixion, they found out that this applied. Somebody somewhere on this planet, back about 600 BC, found some pieces of R6, and I don't know how they found it, either by watching madmen or something, but since that time they have used it and it became what is known as Christianity. The man on the Cross. There was no Christ. But the man on the cross is shown as Everyman. So of course each person seeing a crucified man, has an immediate feeling of sympathy for this man. Therefore you get many PCs who says they are Christ. Now, there's two reasons for that, one is the Roman Empire was prone to crucify people, so a person can have been crucified, but in R6 he is shown as crucified." Ron Hubbard, The Class VIII [Auditor's] Course, "Krakatoa and Beyond", Oct 3, 1968, aboard the Apollo

Other Hubbard quotes on Jesus Christ:

  1. "Religion does much to keep the assumption in restimulation, being basically a control mechanism used by those who have sent the preclear into a body. You will find the cross as a symbol all over the universe, and the Christ legend as implant in preclears a million years ago.", Professional Auditors Bulletins, vol. 2, p. 26 , copyright 1954.
  2. "A few operating thetans - scarcity - could lead to trouble. Witness the chaos resulting from the activities and other-determinism technology of one [ie. Christ] operating thetan 2,000 years ago." (Professional Auditor's Bulletins, PAB 31, Duplication)
  3. "Neither Lord Buddha nor Jesus Christ were OTs according to evidence. They were just a shade above clear". Hubbard, Certainty magazine, Vol 5 #10.

Commentary by Perry Scott:

  • OTs are Scientology's highest spiritual level, and Clears are at the next lower rung. Scientology "technology" transforms people into Clears by the tens of thousands, all of whom are spiritual equals to Jesus Christ.
  • According to Hubbard's OT III cosmology, all of us on Earth were implanted 75 million years ago with false memories which he collective calls "R6". These implants cause us to do all sorts of crazy things, but Hubbard's auditing can break the power of the implants. Here, Hubbard says that Christianity is nothing more than a religious system built on parts of the R6 implants. The behavior of the mentally ill was used as a model for Christianity.
  • After establishing the origins of Christianity upon the ravings of the mentally ill, Hubbard goes on to deny the existence of Christ, saying instead that all men share the implant of the cross, which is part of R6. Thus, according to Hubbard, responding to Christ is simply being under the control of a false memory implant.
  • The highest auditor class is XII. This lecture is delivered to Class VIII trainees. It is my understanding that Class VIII auditors typically deliver the clearing and lower OT levels of processing. In any case, Class VIIIs are well-indoctrinated and predisposed to accepting Hubbard's claims without question. These auditors then go on to "counsel" lower-level church members with this "knowledge" of R6 and God.

Hubbard on the Leaders of the Christian Church and the origin of Christianity

"Also the Christian Church used (and uses) implanting (with a squirrel version of the "7s"). These gangsters were the Nicomidians from lower Egypt who were cased out for criminal practices (implanting officials). They took over the Niocene Creed before the year zero, invented Christ (who comes from the crucifixion in R6 75m years ago) and implanted their way to "power". The original Nicomidians date about 600 BC and people who were Christ data at 75m years ago." - L. Ron Hubbard, Resistive Cases, Former Therapy, HCOB 23 Sep 1968.

Commentary by Perry Scott:

  • The 7s refers to a Scientology auditing process.
  • Implanting refers to the insertion of false memories into people's minds, implying that the Christian Church exerts mind control over its followers. While it may be true that some cults with Christian backgrounds use mind control, it is untrue that the Christian Church in general and as a matter of doctrine uses mind control. In typical fashion, Hubbard accuses others of his own crimes; Scientology uses a subtle form of mind control (I prefer the term "thought shaping") to keep their adherents in line. Bob Penny, former member, wrote an essay on Social Control in Scientology, which is found in the FACTNet archive.
  • I cannot fathom how the Christian Church could "take over" the Nicene Creed, since the Creed is a formulation of Christian dogma and did not exist before Christianity. The Nicene Creed was a result of the First Council of Nicea, in 325 AD. Hubbard misstates both the time and place in this case.
  • Again, Hubbard asserts that Christ never existed and is part of R6, the bad movies that were shown to everyone on Earth 75 million years ago.
  • "implanted their way to 'power'" deserves some translation from Hubbardese. "implanted" refers to the coerced insertion of false memories into someone to achieve control. "power" is the highest condition in Hubbard's Ethics system. To be in power means to be at cause over others.

Hubbard on the Creator and God


  1. "I imagine when we finally manage to communicate with beetle under rocks and free them, we'll no doubt find the Creator of Heaven who 43 + Trillion years ago designed and built the Pearly Gates and entrapped us all.
  2. "Good Lord, I'd hate to be guilty of that overt. But never mind - you aren't either. That guy is GONE (I hope!)", HCO BULLETIN OF MAY 11, AD1963

Commentary by Perry Scott:

  • The Pearly Gates refer to the Helatrobus Implants. See "Hubbard on Heaven". According to Hubbard, heaven is a false memory given to us by an evil "Creator of Heaven".
  • Apparently, the Helatrobus Implants are present in a wide variety of life forms, including insects.
  • While Hubbard may have meant his reference to communicating with beetles to have been amusing, one of the final steps for the old OT VII contains instructions to: ("1. Find some plants, trees, etc., and communicate to them individually until you know they received your communication. 2. Go to a zoo or a place with many types of life and communicate with each of them until you know the communication is received and, if possible, returned." OT7-48)
  • An "overt" is a wrongful act committed by someone against someone else. For example, the Helatrobus Implant is an overt.
  • Hubbard hopes the Creator of Heaven is GONE.

Now we say this thing called a thetan [ei. the soul] is capable of producing all sorts of things, and we say this is the person, so therefore, we differ enormously from the Christian statements on the subject. They say, 'you, son, must save your soul.' The fellow says, 'I don't have one!' So therefore, the Christian religion cannot possibly be true and they lose all kinds of converts that way. Fellow can't find his soul... not there. Somebody saving his soul is doing something very interesting. He evidently has something set up over here, that has probably, mass, that he says is his soul! And then he goes about saving it and it turns out to be a demon circuit called 'Mama,' or something. Now he expects THIS to go to heaven. <laughs>" (Text from L. Ron Hubbard's own voice in the 1958 Clearing Congress Lecture Videotape.)

Commentary by Perry Scott:

  • Scientology doctrine states that concept of the soul is a demon circuit. This is incompatible with Christianity.
  • Note: "mama" is a reference to Freud which he was speaking about earlier in the lecture.

 The Christ Game (111kb Real Audio)

"You'll find, by the way, another man at this stage, and his preclears will shift the identities and borrow facsimiles. Like men, there's what they call 'The Christ Game' and that game has been played and played and played and play..., honest to Pete, these cards are just so thin, they've been laid down amongst the coffee cups, and so forth, of the whole universe. You'll find out thousands of years before the year 1 AD, Earth, you will have facsimiles and dolls made up like Christ. Fact one: a million years ago is occasionally rigged with Christ and the devil and an angel. It's a fascinating thing, it's an old game. Here on Earth, there was undoubtedly a Christ. One of the reasons he was ... he swept in so suddenly ah, and he, he would go forward so hard, is he had a good assist back of him in terms of an implant."  (Taken from lecture 24 of the Philadelphia Doctorate Course lectures when L. Ron Hubbard didn't get his PhD. This is an old game played by thetans. )

Scientology and Reincarnation

"The Egyptians, Hindus, Buddhists, Jainists, Sikhists, Brahmans, NeoPlatonists, Christians, Romans, Jews and Gnostics all believed in reincarnation and the rebirth cycle. It was a fundamental belief in the Roman Catholic Church until 553 AD when a company of four monks held the Synod of Constantinople, (without the Pope present) and decided the belief could not exist. They condemned the teachings of reincarnation as heresy and it was at this time that references to it were expunged from the Bible." ("Have You Lived Before This Life?" by L. Ron Hubbard, Introduction, 1977 edition, both written by anonymous authors. Advance #93, p2,; quoted in Margery Wakefield's book "The Road to Xenu", Chapter 7)

[It say that the council] "condemned the teaching of reincarnation. 'If anyone assert the pre-existence of souls,' they decreed, 'and shall submit to the monstrous doctrine that follows from it, let him be anathema.' And, thus there was a formal curse upon believers and all references to the subject were expunged from the Bible. Origenism and the belief in the pre-existence of souls was declared heresy" (ibid. timeline in appendix on p284)

Comments by: FW Haack and Peik J Strömsholm:

  1. Hubbard essentially says that he is restoring an ancient Christian doctrine. Yet, reincarnation was never a fundamental belief of Christianity, but rather a result of Hubbard's poor knowledge in history.
  2. Any New Testament scholar can tell you that early manuscripts from 100-500 AD have no references whatsoever to reincarnation. Not only Fundamentalists, but also the most Liberal Theologians as well as Historians agree with this.
  3. Nothing has been "expunged" (lost) from the Bible. The Text of the Bible is the best documented of any book in world history! We have two complete copies of the Bible in codex form, written in 300AD!
  4. The Synod of Constantinople didn't mention reincarnation. It dealt with, inter alia, the teachings of Origen, who stated that human souls existed before birth. (Pre-existence). Origen concluded that all souls will be restored in the end, not reincarnated. Also the devil will be saved in the end.
  5. Therefore the Synod declared Anathemas against Origen: "I. IF anyone asserts the fabulous pre-existence of souls, and shall assert the monstrous restoration which follows it: let him be anathema." (Quoted in Nicene Fathers, "The Seven Ecumenical Councils of the Undivided Church", ISBN 0-8028-8129, p. 318.)
  6. Reincarnation was not mentioned. Origen was condemned for his heretical opinions about the soul, but not even Origen believed in reincarnation: "In this place [Matt. 17:10] it does not appear to me that by Elijah the soul is spoken of, lest I should fall into the dogma of transmigration, which is foreign to the church of God, and not handed down by the Apostles, nor anywhere set forth in the Scriptures..." (Origen's Commentary on Matthew, Book XIII, The Ante-Nicene Fathers vol. X, p. 474)
  7. Regarding the "four monks" present, the following may be quoted: "In accordance with the imperial command, but without the assent of the Pope, the synod was opened on the 5th May A.D. 553, in the Secretarium of the Cathedral Church at Constantinople. Among those present were the Patriarchs, Eutychius of Contantinople, who presided, Apollinaris of Alexandria, Domninus of Antioc, three bishops as representatives of the Patriarch Eustochius of Jerusalem, and 145 other metropolitans and bishops, of whom many came also in the place of absent colleagues." (Hefele, Quoted in Nicene Fathers, "The Seven Ecumenical Councils", p. 299.)

Hubbard on the Church
Roman Catholicism (11kb Real Audio)

"The entirety of Roman Catholicism - the devil, all of this sort of thing - that is all part of R6." Ron Hubbard (Audio clip)

"The Roman Catholic Church, through watching the dramatizations of people picked up some little fragments of R6." Class 8 Course, Lecture 10, Oct 3, 1968

Commentary by Perry Scott:

  • Hubbard equates Roman Catholicism with the Christianity. This is not a specific attack on Catholicism, but all of Christianity!
  • "Dramatizations" are the actions that people perform in response to their engrams or false memories. Hubbard's theory of R6 includes the command "to forget" and Hubbard is claiming that parts of R6 occasionally surface. The Roman Catholic Church apparently saw these and invented Christianity. Note that Hubbard's time line is incorrect; Christianity preceded the Church of Rome. Of course, the Churches in Greece and other parts of Asia Minor also escape Hubbard's attention. Choosing the Church of Rome as the progenitor of Christianity is like saying clams were the progenitors of human beings (which Hubbard also happened to claim in History of Man).

Hubbard on Bible Prophesy

" Old therapies include the 2000 yr. ago plus or minus Aoscuplepian drug treatment (hillabore) which produced a conclusion and coma, and in which the nut practitioner made up as a God and "visited" the patient in a "dream". This outfit was all over the ancient world. " - L. Ron Hubbard, Resistive Cases, Former Therapy, HCOB 23 Sep 1968.

Commentary by Perry Scott:

  • Former Therapy discusses drug-induced events on the Whole Track which may prevent progression in Scientology. The Whole Track is Scientology's dogma concerning eternal life.
  • Hubbard may be referring to ancient Jewish prophets ("all over the ancient world"). One of the mechanisms by which the Hebrew prophets received messages from God was in a dream. e.g. Jer 23:28 "The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that hath my word, let him speak my word faithfully."

Hubbard on Christian Love


Christian love is significantly lower-toned (more evil) than the love of New Yorkers.

"Love, if you have ever noticed, does not much care where it sites on the tone-scale as we find a young man deeply in love starving himself to death (a characteristic of apathy) and a young girl in love in dreamy enthusiasm which makes her bloom. We find love used in Christianity about twelve feet below 0.0 [death] and in New York precisely at 2.5 on the tone scale." Professional Auditor's Bulletin No. 8, "Viewpoint Processing, p. 50 in _PABs_ Book 1, May 1953 to April 1954.

Commentary by Perry Scott:

  • Hubbard states that Christian love is lower-toned than death. On the Tone Scale, death is below other emotions such as antagonism, hostility, anger, and hate. In effect, Hubbard says that hate and anger are preferable to Christian love.
  • For those that missed it inside Hubbard's ramblings, Hubbard says that Christian love is significantly lower-toned (more evil) than the love of New Yorkers.

Hubbard on Poverty

"It is all very well to idealise poverty and associate wisdom with begging bowls, or virtue with low estate. However, those who have done this (Buddhists, Christians, Communists and other fanatics) have dead ended or are dead ending.", HCOPL 21 Jan 1965

Commentary by Perry Scott:

  • Hubbard contemptously lumps Buddhists and Christians in with "Communists and other fanatics". The ideals of poverty in Buddhist and Christian are diametrically opposed to Hubbard's "MAKE MONEY. MAKE MORE MONEY. GET OTHERS TO MAKE MONEY.", HCO PL 9 Mar 72
  • Hubbard misses the point of Christian poverty ideals. Christ taught that focusing one's life on the pursuit of wealth diverts attention away from spiritual illumination. Christians can be rich or poor as long as their attitude is to not LOVE money over God. Hubbard uses religion as a means to make a million dollars and the poor have no access to spiritual illumination.

Scientology is Neo-Gnosticism

Scientology and Gnosticism

"Scientology is the science of knowing how to know answers." (Hubbard)

A religion where you pay to learn secret knowledge that saves you!!!

Peik Stromsholm's study of Click to ViewScientology's Gnostic roots

Scientology is a Gnostic [gnosis: to know] system in every sense of the word. The material is doled out on The Gradient at steep prices. Each course is a prerequisite for the next. The church member is compelled to take that next course to secure their spiritual salvation or be condemned to sliding back to a state of degradation. Hubbard set up Scientology as circles within circles, a spiritual treadmill without end. Scientology always has a new "breakthrough" technology to learn that will unlock your spiritual potential.

Gnosticism parallels Scientology: "Even for specialists, Gnosticism is hard to define. It is a set of forms of religious belief that probably came into existence in the first century BCE as a heretical form of Judaism. Gnosticism flourished in the second to fourth centuries CE as heretical forms of Christianity. It is, as Pheme Perkins correctly argues, not a systematic set of ideas but of "mythemes" and speculations that were combined in a host of different ways both within and without Christian vocabulary. Gnosticism claimed that there exists a higher god that has become trapped in the material world due to a flaw in God's wisdom. The book of Genesis was therefore understood to be a story of how the demonic Jewish God, (often labeled Yaldobaoth) tried to trap human souls in material bodies. To free the soul from its entrapment, the Higher God sent a revealer into this world to inform humans of its divine origin. Those who understand this revelation, this gnosis, are empowered to rise above this world of demonic materialism and resume their places in the realm of the Higher God." (Gnosticism and the New Testament, Pheme Perkins, 1993, pp 261)

Jon Atack reports on Click to ViewHubbard and the Occult

"Now, he could simply say, "I have action." A magician - the magic cults of the eighth, ninth, tenth, eleventh, twelfth centuries in the Middle East were fascinating. The only modern work that has anything to do with them is a trifle wild in spots, but it's fascinating work in itself, and that's work written by Aleister Crowley, the late Aleister Crowley, my very good friend. And he did himself a splendid piece of aesthetics built around those magic cults. It's very interesting reading to get hold of a copy of a book, quite rare, but it can be obtained. the Master Therion, T-h-e-r-i-o-n, The Master Therion by Aleister Crowley. He signs himself "The Beast"; "The Mark of the Beast, 666." Very, very something or other, but anyway the ... Crowley exhumed a lot of the data from these old magic cults.", The Philadelphia Doctorate Course, L. Ron. Hubbard, Tape #18, Dec 5, 1952.  

"... Also I've got to complete this by saying that he [Hubbard Sr.] thought of himself as the Beast 666 Incarnate." Interviewer: "The devil?" Ron Jr: "Yes. Aleister Crowley thought of himself as such. And when Crowley died in 1947 my father then decided that he should wear the cloak of the beast; and become the most powerful being in the universe. Ron Hubbard's son said in an interview. Scientoligists today suggest that Hubbard's son said this out of spite and that it is not true.

Commentary by Perry Scott:

Hubbard's early association with Satanism prior to his release of Dianetics is documented in Bare Faced Messiah. Hubbard apparently followed Crowley's exhortation to "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.", ruling his Scientology empire with an iron fist. Scientology doctrine contains many references to controlling or being controlled.

Prior to writing the Philadelphia Doctorate Course, Hubbard had a chance to visit Aleister Crowley's estate. This provides the context for the following passage from the PDC, where he reveals himself to be a Satanist who studied Aleister Crowley.

According to his son, Hubbard assumed the throne of "The Beast" when Crowley died [Corydon], thus the additional modifier of "late Aliester Crowley" is significant. Hubbard sounds like a salesman hawking Crowley's book, reminiscent of commercials seen on late-night television, s-p-e-l-l-i-n-g out the name.

The inflection in Hubbard's voice reveals a great deal. In an example of Hubbard's extemporaneous style of speaking, he segues into identifying Crowley as "The Beast, six-sixty-six" in a rather grandiose way. Hubbard probably then remembered he had also just called Crowley "my good friend" and realized his gaffe toward Christians in the audience. He then stammers the nonsensical "very, very something or other, but anyway the ..." until he recovers his wits. The pauses in his speech reveal times when his mind was elsewhere, probably thinking about the effect of what he just said.

Hubbard's early association with Satanism prior to his release of Dianetics is documented in Bare Faced Messiah. Hubbard apparently followed Crowley's exhortation to "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.", ruling his Scientology empire with an iron fist. Scientology doctrine contains many references to controlling or being controlled. Hubbard directed the lives of his followers in minute detail, and exiling anyone who crossed his will to the Rehabilitation Project Force (RPF). [RPF has been variously described as either a reform camp or gulag, depending on your point of view].

The Scientology Cross and Satanism

The Scientology Cross resembles the "crossed-out cross" of Aleister Crowley. Crowley was an English practitioner of occult and "magick", a satanist who called himself "Beast 666". Hubbard's occult dabblings and exposure to Crowley's writings, circa 1940, are detailed in several books on Scientology.

The two crosses are portrayed side-by-side on the last page in the picture section of Bent Corydon's "L.Ron Hubbard: Messiah or Madman", 1987. On the same page, above the crosses, are uncannily similar photos of ElRon and Aleister. By Dean Benjamin
