Scientology is a religion that has received a lot of media coverage lately.  That is mostly due to the fact that some rather high-profile entertainers belong to the Church of Scientology.  John Travolta, Kirstie Alley, Tom Cruise, Jenna Elfman, and Nicole Kidman are a sampling of these entertainers who have gone on record as being Scientologists (though Ms. Kidman later left Scientology).  In fact, Tom Cruise recently made headlines by pleading the Scientology case before the German Government.  The practice of Scientology is currently forbidden in Germany now.  Given that Scientologists will tell prospective converts that they can continue to attend whatever church they wish, it is important to highlight the non-Christian beliefs of this cult.  Furthermore, as one ascends into the high levels of training in Scientology, they find that this cult is anything but friendly toward Christianity.

Scientology was started by sci-fi writer L. Ron Hubbard, and evolved from his initial concept of Dianetics.  The Scientology religion is based exclusively upon L. Ron Hubbard's research, writings and recorded lectures -- all of which constitute the Scriptures of the religion. These encompass more than 500,000 pages of writings, nearly 3,000 recorded lectures and more than 100 films. He is the only source of the religion, and he has no successor. A fundamental doctrine of the Scientology religion is that spiritual freedom can be attained only if the path outlined in these works is followed without deviation, for it is an intensively researched and workable route.

Scientology denies that salvation comes from God.  As their website says:  For instance, although, like the Judeo-Christian religions Scientology affirms the existence of a Supreme Being and places the Supreme Being at the apex of its cosmology, like many Eastern religions, salvation in Scientology is attained through personal spiritual enlightenment Also from their website:  Scientology holds man to be basically good, and that his spiritual salvation depends upon himself and his fellows and his attainment of brotherhood with the universe.

Scientology, like many new religions or those of eastern descent, releases people from personal accountability.  They deny the existence of heaven and hell, and they deny the concepts of original sin and salvations by grace.  In Scientology (which espouses reincarnation), each person must save himself by ridding himself of destructive memories and experiences that he or she has brought into their current life.
