What Does Eckankar Members Do. by raphy(m): 8:38am On Sep 26, 2017
Good morning everyone,
I don't hardly post about religion stuff but I just want to know something about this religion called eckankar.

I have a female friend who told me she ain't Christian but an erckis. She never wanted to tell me she thought I Wont be her friend again. Because many ppl dont like her religion.but as a cool guy I assure her I wont dump her because of that. So she finally told me her religion is eckankar.

So everyone in the house can please tell me if anything is bad with the religion.

Thank you and do have a blessed week ahead.

Short summary

Eckist believes that they can attain spiritual enlightenment and awareness by connecting to the Eck Living Master through mediation and other spiritual exercises (the most common one is the singing of the mono syllabus HU, which according to Eckist is the hallowed name of God)

While the organization promotes love and brotherhood between members, it is argued that those spiritual exercises do expose them to manipulation in the spirit realm though most argue that they are protected in those realm by their living Eck Master

Fetish stuff is rarely reported among them but their refusal to acknowledge Jesus as the son of God, makes some Christians hostile to them (to them He was just another Living Eck Master of His time)

check your dictionary for the meaning of cult.
cult
kʌlt/
noun
1.
a system of religious veneration and devotion directed towards a particular figure or object.


If this is the dictionary definition that you depend on, then know that the biggest cult in the world is the Roman Catholic Church and in case you didnt know, they gave you the Bible that you read

The Roman Catholic is also a cult. But God knows how to bring good things out of bad things.

Not at all. The Bible is good. The Roman Catholics are just tools in God's hands. God can use anything to make His will to be done
