Addictive religious leaders are much like drug pushers. They have a product to sell and need to train potential customers to need the product which they have to sell. People who have few problems and dilemmas are taught by addictive religious leaders addictive: IDEALS VALUES ATTITUDES ASSUMPTIONS BELIEFS CONVICTIONS PRIDE ARROGANCE and much more. They are then ready to accept the sales- pitch on the merits of the fixes which the addictive religious leaders have to offer. Addictive religious leaders enlist the help of codependent religious leaders who play various supportive roles in the profitable religious enterprise which brings money into the church to glorify the gods of the addictive religious leaders. Addictive religious leaders are skillful players in their collusive games of mutual self-deception --- and train new players to join them in their dishonest games which are played according to invisible rules. The rules cannot be challenged --- because they "do not exist." Addictive religious leaders are false prophets; they play collusive games of mutual self-deception. Dishonesty is their main stay; and is used to entrap people into staying within religious contexts: which imprison rather than liberate, sicken rather than heal, condemn rather than forgive, and excommunicate rather than reconcile. It is no wonder that such religious leaders are prone to crucify anyone who is transparently the way, the truth and the life which exposes the false prophets --- by being bright lights of truths, and open and honest dialogues upon the dark and deadly ways of addictive religious leadership.
