Scientology Scientology is beliefs and practices created by L. Ron Hubbard. This religion teaches people that we are immortal being who have forgotten their true nature. Its type of counseling is called auditing. This is where practitioners try to re-experience a painful even in their past to “free” themselves. This technique was only supposed to be a new psychotherapy and not a new religion. It is similar to confession or pastoral counseling. Most of the time it require an E-Meter which is a device that measures minute changes in electrical resistance through the body when a person holds electrodes and a small current is passed through them. Most Scientologists first come in contact with Scientology as they are practicing this technique. “The church of scientology is one of the most controversial new religious movements to have arisen in the 20 th century. It has been often described as a cult that financially defrauds and abuses its member, charging exorbitant fees for its spiritual services.”(Wikipedia)
