Cults are very wise in their recruitment effort. Cults are groups that attack the principle and beliefs in the biblical effort. And so they make their recruitment efforts in the personal lives of people.
The way to do this recruitment is that they invite those people who have no or little knowledge of the teaching of the Bible. They invite these people Bible studies, usually in-home Bible studies wherein they usually tamper and distort the real teaching of the bible. They do a little twisting just to promote their principle s and beliefs by also promoting their religious leader.

When one is suffering from the feeling of unstableness in his life, he or she seeks for something he or she thinks will stabilize the current situation. Divorce, marriage, a new job, a death in the family, attending college for the first time are some of a person’s biggest life change that make it great for cults to do their recruiting effort.

Once the cultist sees that the person becomes interested and dependent on his counsel, then the cultist takes this opportunity to involve one to the cult. What cultist will do the cult mentality that the person has no opportunity to react or question because the cultist keeps him or her busy doing the given cult duties.
