Siberian ‘Messiah’

Posted by doctore0 on January 30, 2014

Yet another crazy cult..

A self-proclaimed Messiah has been operating in Siberia’s Krasnoyarsk Region. The founding father of the Vissarion Brotherhood and the Church of the Last Testament, who calls himself “The Teacher,” predicts a new Great Flood, promises salvation and spiritual perfection to his followers. His followers choose to abandon their homes and build settlements near the sacred Mountain, where “The Teacher” lives. One woman, a former member of the sect, shares her experience and explains how her new faith has torn her family apart.
