Religious dogmatism


According to an American specialist in religious studies (Charles Kimball) there are five warning signs for the corruption of all religion, which also are signs indicating that things can go wrong in a religious group: 1) when claims of absolute truth are made; (2) when blind obedience is demanded; (3) when the group anticipates an exclusive time of "deliverance"; (4) when the group teaches that the end justifies any means; and (5) when the group is prone to declare a Holy War.
