Re: Background Checks For ECK Clergy
- Hello Jonathan and All,
I'd like to comment on this cross-post from
Eckankartruth. I think that the background
checks started when ECKists began working
with the Boy Scouts around the time the Scouts
were kicking people out for being gay. There
was a lot of bad press and Klemp didn't want
any of it to come back and bite him in the arse.
Klemp became rather paranoid and wanted to
take action to make Eckankar bulletproof from
Therefore, the background checks were done
on those working with the youth. And, anyone
going through Arahata Training and wanted
to work with EK Youth, also, had to take an
additional training course where they were
scrutinized and evaluated much more carefully.
One thing that is interesting about all of this
is that the All Knowing LEM/Mahanta, obviously,
can't read the Akashic or Soul records of his
own H.I.s! Klemp needs to rely upon Physical
Plane Paper Records provided by the government!
What's with that?
Here's the definition of Akashic Records:
"The Records, Memories, and Karmic Patterns
of Soul, stored on the Third, or Causal Plane
FOR the Physical and Astral Planes." [1998 EK
Lexicon, page 6]
So, this is just more proof that Klemp is
a fraud. IF he really was what he claims
to be then why can't he access these
records for his own background checks?
He can't! This is just one more lie that
ECKists have bought into because it's
convenient and feels good... it's the
Easy Way to more and more delusion.
Eckankar now requires a background check for all Eck clergy
I resigned from Eckankar yesterday. I am speaking out today.
Sometime in the past few months I found out that Eckankar now requires
a background check for all Eck clergy. Also, if you don't comply with
Eckankar headquarter's "request," your clergy privileges are
I am absolutely certain of this information. I am not posting any more
details in order to protect the source of my information.
I searched the Internet for any information about this. I found
absolutely nothing. Also, it has neve been mentioned in any of the
private Eckankar mailings that I have received. So it appears to me
that Eckankar is trying to keep this quiet.
