Welcome to IndoctriNation: A weekly podcast covering cults, manipulators, and protecting yourself from systems of control.


Charisma over Content w/ Ron Burks, ex-Gold Coast Covenant Church - S3E11pt2

The Gold Coast Covenant "Church" had 50,000 members at the time Ron Burks was among the congregation; and it still exists today by twisting beloved verses from the Bible. An organization that prioritizes leaders on charisma rather than content. After 10 years of doubting what he knew was right for himself-- and speaking in tongues for 8hrs a day-- Ron asked himself the questions he needed to find his freedom.

Stay Tuned, Before You Go: Rachel describes her experience meeting the Mother, Wife, and Brother of God.
