Life is precious, but cults consider life to be worthless. Children are the buds of life, but cults destroy them in an evil way. How many children have been killed by cults around the world? 

A female cult believer killed her son as sacrifice 

According to a report on the Kenyan website “hivisasa,” on November 17, 2016, a woman in Kenya cruelly killed her 8-year son. The suspect is a follower of Demon Satan and confessed that the head of the cult asked her to sacrifice her son. It’s said that she received 20,000 shilling (about 195 USD) from the cult located in Nairobi in south Kenya. The suspect will be prosecuted according to the law in Kenya.  

Head of cult in Chili burned her three-day old daughter as sacrifice 

According to a report by the San Diego Times on March 19, 2014, the court of San Diego rejected the exemption application from a cult member who killed her baby girl (in 2012). The cult member might face a sentence of 15 years imprisonment. It’s reported that Natalie Guerra was accused of burning her three-day old daughter as a sacrifice at a religious ritual together with 7 other members and Ramon Gustavo Castillo Gaete, father of the child and leader of the cult. Founded by Ramon Gustavo Castillo Gaete in 2005, the cult Antares de la Luz has more than one hundred followers in Chili. Gaete claimed that he is a God and said doomsday would arrive on December 21, 2012. He burned the baby girl as a sacrifice because she was te incarnation of the “enemy of Christ” who would be born on doomsday. She would hinder the arrival of doomsday on December 21, 2012. 



A believer of “Riyueminggong” beat her son to death 

According to Taiwan media, a student surnamed Zhan who was in the third grade of senior middle school in Zhanghua was suspected of being maltreated and murdered. According to a police investigation, his mother Huang Fenque was obsessed with “Riyueminggong” and beat her son to death. She said that her son took drugs, which was found to be a lie. According to the forensic examination, her son was beaten so heavily that his liver shrank. It’s the nature of a mother to love her son, but cults will deprive a mother of this nature. It shows how cruel and pitiless cults truly are.

 A believer of Satanic cult in Ukraine killed his two-year-old daughter 

According to a report on February 11, 2013, a tragedy occurred in Luhansk in south Ukraine. A 33-year-old father dragged his two young children out of their home late at night and killed his 2-year-old daughter. His 5-year-old son survived thanks to police intervention, but now lives in an insane asylum with his mother as a result of strong psychological damage. It is said that the killer was a father of three children. He used to love his children but turned into a “Satan” after becoming a follower of a Satanic cult. For one week before the tragedy, he spent his time on the cult’s website and talked about holding a ceremony. In order to give sacrifice to “Satan”, he killed his daughter. Cults are much more poisonous than a scorpion.

It’s a crime to kill me.” Guan didn’t listen and strangled her. Others knelt down or put their hands together, praying for eviction of the demon. Some were scared and hid in the corner. Some watched indifferently. Dai Nan eventually died.

Almighty God believer Wan Chengyan stoned her 8-year-old son and nailed him to a cross 

Wan Chengyan from Shuyang county of Jiangsu province got obsessed with Almighty God in 1995. After that, she no longer cared for her children or farm and got psychological illness as a result of brainwashing by cult. On the night of January 3, 1996 (lunar calendar), Wan read the “sacred text” and got the illusion that only by offering “precious blood” to “Almighty God” could she get rid of “evils”. She couldn’t sleep. Her 8-year-old son came to her mind. Late in the night, she attacked her son with a cleaver. Seeing that her son was bleeding, she put him on the floor. She found bamboo poles and a washboard in the yard and bound them into the shape of a cross. She put clothes on her son, put him on the “cross” and nailed a long nail into his forehead.

From August 16, 2011, Zhao gave her son to Almighty God believers for treatment. The believers gave only one meal to Liang each day. They chanted, prayed, put Liang’s two legs between several wood boards, fixed them with a rope, put bricks on his legs, and tightened the boards. Liang howled in pain on the bed. The believers even stamped on him. As a result of hot weather, inadequate food and several rounds of torture, Liang collapsed and died on the third day of “treatment”. 

Falun Gong believer Wang Qunying killed her daughter for perfection

In the early morning of July 7, 2009, Wang cut her own neck with a kitchen knife. Her daughter, who was only 6 and half years old, was killed by her on her bed. After being rescued, Wang said that she was afraid that her daughter would live badly after she attainedperfection, so she decided to bring her daughter to heaven with her. Wang didn’t regret killing her daughter but was resentful about others rescuing her. On the afternoon of July 17, Wang’s condition deteriorated and she died in hospital. 


Those bloody cases expose the evil and cruel nature of cults. If those people hadn’t believed in a cult, their children would have had another life. It’s a pity that life doesn’t have second tries. Those flowers were destroyed by cults. The cruel facts warn us again that cults are like poison gas and go everywhere. If one person believes in a cult, the whole family will suffer. Keep far from cults to keep far from danger and harm.
