This web site is the outcome of an investigation into "Messianic Evangelicals", "Mishpachah Lev-Tsiyon", "NCCG", a small, polygamous religious group or "cult" with a self-styled apostle/prophet who has been its effective leader since its inception. The Messianic Evangelicals/Mishpachah Lev-Tsiyon core members live in a small compound in a semi-rural area near Arvika, Sweden.

The Messianic Evangelicals cult was recently known as Mishpachah Lev-Tsiyon and has had many names throughout its lifetime. It was prominently named "NCCG" or "New Covenant Church of God" until Fall of 2006. Much of the documentation on this site refers to the cult by its "NCCG" name.

My investigation was initiated in mid-2005 and concluded around 2008. I have come to the opinion that this group should be classified as "destructive" when viewed in the context of the criteria defined by the Rick A. Ross Institute for the Study of Destructive Cults (http://www.rickross.com/warningsigns.html). I sometimes update this web site when new information warrants it, but in general, I think there is plenty of material gathered within the 2005-2008 timeframe to help people make better-informed decisions about the cult.

This cult has changed its methods of operation during its long lifetime (1984 - present), and seems likely to continue morphing in different ways in the future.

As of the 2005-2008 timeframe, most of the Messianic Evangelicals/Mishpachah Lev-Tsiyon recruitment of new members was done using the internet, and a smaller amount was being done by word-of-mouth by members in areas of the world other than Arvika, Sweden. Recruitment tended to focus on Christians and ex-Mormons who have converted to Christianity. Men and married women were usually maintained as internet-only members who participate in the cult's internet message boards and internet chat, whereas single women were sometimes targeted for recruitment into the core group (which entails living at the Messianic Evangelicals/Mishpachah Lev-Tsiyon compound as one of the wives of the cult leader).

If you happen to visit the NCCG web site (www.nccg.org), be aware that they may be keeping IP logs of their site visitors. Due to this, you may wish to use an internet anonymizing service. This in particular applies to parents or other concerned individuals who are investigating Mishpachah Lev-Tsiyon/NCCG in regard to a current member or associate. Some free anonymizers that could be used are: http://www2.shadowsurf.com/cgi-bin/nph-shadowsurf.cgi/000000A/http/www.nccg.org/ ,  and http://www.the-cloak.com/anonymous-surfing-home.html.

As every good teacher knows, you have to let your students surpass you and let them go. Cult leaders cannot do this. Independence of their followers is poison to them; holding on to them is poison to both.

It is fine to love and respect a great teacher or guru from whom you have learned; even honoring them is appropriate. But to elevate a man to the level of worship has always led to corruption. Just look at the history of Rome and the Ceasars. (Great video - "I Claudius" or Gibbon's book, "Reflections on the Fall of Rome").

The main crime perpetuated by cult leaders is how they promote self doubt, how they undermine your own sense of self efficacy, your own inner authority and worth. The concept that you can not know God or advance spiritually except through someone else is a core belief that ensnares every cult follower. It's fine to seek out teachers and authorities and learn from them, but within a cult, a pathetic relationship is fostered by cult leader with the followers. It undermines all innovation, growth, creativity, freedom, and life. In the end, we are all just ordinary men and women, and we are all equally capable of extraordinary things if only we have the courage and self confidence. It is this very courage and self confidence that is targeted by every cult and cult leader. The only difference is how the paper mache mask is painted. Underneath each mask lies the same creature.
