Overview

The Mormon Cult: A Former Missionary Reveals the Secrets of Mormon Mind Control by Jack B. Worthy


Scrutinizing the experience of growing up Mormon, this personal narrative tells the story of one man's disillusionment with his faith and subsequent excommunication from the Church. This account reveals what is posited as inherent racism and sexism within the church and seeks to expose the controlling methods of indoctrination and the harsh process of excommunication. The basic tenets of the religion are explained, personal stories and analyses are shared, and church authorities are cited to support the claims of extreme gender and racial discrimination. From unknowing follower to angry rebel, and finally to a content, worldly man, this book recounts the experience of a survivor who feels the duty to explain his truth.

I grew up a Mormon and this book gives a very accurate description of what growing up Mormon is like. It was well written, entertaining, and is informative for anyone who wants to know more about the Mormon church. Its interesting that all the one star reviews either had no comment, or had comments that gave no indication they had actually read the book. Hmmm... that seems to indicate that the author is onto something. Highly recommended.

Wanted to comment on one person's comment who said "It is impossible for a returned, full-time missionary, who knew anything about the LDS church to turn his back on the gospel." There are so many former LDS members who did serve a full two-year mission and are no longer members of the Church. Therefore, your "theory" is false.

An honest book which demonstrates how [ any] religion can keep a human being from experiencing life to the fullest. The author has writing talent and presents some background on LDS history along with his experiences. Writing a decent book requires a commitment of time. Jack Worthy does not deserve the disparaging comments made by those folks who have not even dared to read a chapter of his book. I am looking forward to hearing more from him in the future.

Come on people do you think anyone IN Mormonism will be unbiased. .... Sorry if the truth is too close to home. LDS doctrine is a 180 from Biblical Christianity.

Read- Bible Dictionary: Stick of Ephraim, John 10:6 Isaiah 29:4, 11-18 Ezekiel 37:15-17 John 20:31 Acts 10:43 nd if you own a copy of the Book of Mormon read- 1 Nephi 13:20-29, 40 & 41 2 Nephi 2:3-14 3 Nephi 23:1 Mormon 7:8 & 9 2 Nephi 29:8 By the way this book is a load of crap. It is impossible for a returned, full-time missionary, who knew anything about the LDS church to turn his back on the gospel.

This author must have thought writing a controversial book about Mormonism would guarantee big sales. As a female who was raised Mormon and was ex-communicated I can tell you this guy is full of crap. My experience with not only Mormonism but also with life in general is there are many ways to view any situation, and some people go for the most sensationalised account they can think of. Many people can be present at a event and afterward give greatly differing accounts of the situation. This is the reason law enforcement places less weight to eye witness accounts than they do with hard evidence. Come on people - do you really think that a bitter ex member of any organization is going to write anything unbiased? Where would be the drama in that? Like I said at the beginning, this author was hoping for some big paychecks. Even though the book was full of errors, I gave him two stars for the creative way he presented his view.
