Are The Emissaries a cult? | Edenvale

Are The Emissaries a cult?


The danger of cults is that individuals are induced to give up their lives—either to a single, eccentric leader, to a disempowering doctrine, or to “group think.” The Emissaries challenge people to live their own authentic lives, and to take ultimate responsibility for their worlds. Our programs foster a personal sense of purpose in the context of spiritual regeneration and transformation. At the same time, we acknowledge that there is a risk of cultic behavior whenever people associate in groups, large or small, and we are no exception. We believe that being conscious of this common human tendency is one of the best ways for us as individuals and as a group to go in a different direction.
