  1. It’s a doomsday cult so I guess this fulfills their prophecy for themselves.

  2. Don’t be fooled. This cult has spread their activity outside korea, including usa, germany, australia, etc.

    Their practice includes extensive ‘bible study’ and other activity that demand most of your time. A lot of psychological pressure, social isolation outside the group, lack of sleep, peer pressure, as well as extensive activity in a crowded close space. Im not surprise if their immune system is compromised and catch the virus easily. Also articles said the leader tell them to remove mask during meeting, which is plain stupid.

    Source: was in the cult for 3 months before quitting.

  3. Is actually Nurgle worshipers.

  4. Looks like Jesus is taking the wheel on this one boys, just sit back and relax

  5. What’s concerning is that some of these self-destructive beliefs are a lot more widespread in major faiths of the US. Having attended an evangelical Christian fundamentalist school and church for several years, I can say from first-hand experience (even though I absolutely disagree with it) a lot of what they preach is an emphasis on praising “what comes after” the destruction of mankind. Before we can get to that point of this promised utopian paradise where God/Christ will bring the Earth into the Kingdom of Heaven, there has to be a period of great suffering, war, and disaster. In a very weird and twisted sense of irony, while praising the beauty of the world as God’s creation, a lot of these people do not feel a sense of responsibility to nurture and protect the earth and wildlife to stave off disaster and suffering.

    I would argue with them that if God gave us this special, precious thing, then we should really work hard to keep it clean and safe and sustainable. Instead, their goal seems to encourage destructive actions that would hasten the “End Times”. Use up whatever resources we can because our destruction is inevitable, and support wars because certain kingdoms must be destroyed before in order to fulfill the prophecies etc.

    It’s almost like a spoiled child who thinks the sooner we break our toy, the sooner dad will get us a new one.

  6. If you want a successful doomsday cult , you’re gonna have to bring on the apocalypse yourself.

    Big brain moves

  7. She even had the chance to get tested twice, and refused.

  8. So angry at this woman right now, cuz Korea seem to get better with the situation for a week or two.

  9. Hey, I live here! I am an American teaching English in Daegu.

    My school closed on Wednesday because this lady went to church and 10-15 people had Corona just from this church. Two days later, now it’s 50+

    I went right to a market to get a stockpile of food and water right when my school sent me home and have been in my apartment since. Schools in Daegu are closed until at least March 1st. Ghost town is a good way to put it.

  10. So…does that mean it’s gods will?

  11. So much for thoughts and prayers.

  12. I wonder if a ‘super spreader’ could be as simple as someone in crowds who doesn’t cover their mouth when they sneeze.

  13. Unfortunately it isn’t uncommon for cult leaders like this to help the “flock” along with their end goals either, which I’m sure is also a concern.

  14. Is this the one where they got mass married? Korean Evangelicals are the worst kind of indoctrinated.

  15. I bet North Korea will be the only country to survive this thing lol

  16. All that training when we were toddlers – cover your mouth when you cough; sneeze into your arm – it was all in preparation for this moment.

  17. Who would have thought this cult would really be worshipers to the plaguefather Nurgle?

  18. Aren’t all religious organizations cults? What is the difference between one or the other?

  19. Here’s another lesson from this outbreak after banning wet markets: ban dumb cults

  20. Is that the cult that makes people move to another country, kidnaps them and takes all their money and then proceed to brainwash them into luring their relatives and friends into moving out too?

  21. Literally self-fulfilling prophecy.

  22. May be it’s an act of “god” !!!

  23. I read once that most Korean Churches are operated like cults, its the Korean way!
