20 Little Known Religions and Cults

Founded in 1971, The Church of Bible Understanding is a group that was established by Stewart Traill. The believers focus their attention predominately on troubled teenagers by exploiting their vulnerabilities. During the 1970s, the cult expanded throughout the United States. Traill and his followers believe that he is the prophet Elijah reborn. Believers reside in communities that give the vast majority of their money to their leaders, Traill has accumulated millions. He oversees every element of members' existence with shame, vicious character assassination and communal humiliation.
Critics have accused Traill of having alarmingly efficient means of stopping critical thinking, which can cause serious psychological harm. Alarmingly, Traill oversees a group in Haiti. Some former devotees allege that the kids are brainwashed and blackmailed into joining the group for clothing as well as food. Despite the suspect operation, the cult gets government funds for its Haiti Missions.
