Re: Scientology Kills - Ray Randolph - Marty's Blog The fundemental difference as I see it can be pointed out simply by your very example of trying to compare other religions such as Christianity. When people talk about Christianity they are talking about interpretations of Jesus Christ by his followers. If we try to look at the figurehead or prohet (Jesus) as a being and what he espoused (without all the basterdized interpretation by the religious organizations built around it over the centuries or even his apostles interpretations of his teachings, just direct reporting) we see a loving person who seemingly who wanted peace, love, and equality for all. Compare that to scientology and l ron hubbard who not only claimed to be the prophet but wrote his own teachings so that there could be NO misinterpretation and you have the root of the evil in his scam disguised as a religion (and only out of necessity it was called a religion because the scientific community rejected his BS research that he would not allow peer review of). It is not possible to truly reform scientology without destroying it. TL/DR: To reform Christainity is to reinterpret it's prophet Jesus because he only gave simple rules verbally (God's message) and it was an organization built long after he was dead that created the mess, so reform is possible. To try to reform scientology is to directly move away from Hubbard's written orders and therefore would no longer be scientology! You can reform a religion's organization but not it's prophet. With Christ the is no need to, with Hubbard it would be imperative!
