When a Religious Leader Destroys His Flock

Many people have beliefs that can sustain them through the highs and lows of their lives. They may revere their belief system so much that they convince others to believe it too. While many of the world’s religions inspire people to lead lives of kindness and goodness, others do not. In the history of the world, there have been many religious sects and cults that do not espouse positive beliefs, beliefs that focus on kindness. Often, the leaders of these cults use their powerful influence to lead others down a path of wrong-doing and destruction. Jim Jones was such a leader. Although he told his followers he was leading them down a path of righteousness, he was really immersed in corruption, greed, and power. He led his flock toward darkness—not light.
