Is the path néocatéchuménal a sect???

Welcome on the page of the PATH (Collective Heuristic and of exchanges on the mental Manipulation to the inside of the Néocatéchuménat).

Here are some elements if you want in to know more on this movement "recognized" by the pope Jean Paul II but contested by many bishops, priests, laymen...

I am psychologist clinician, psychotherapist and psychoanalyst. For me he/it doesn't make any doubt that this movement is sectarian. It is in part because I am accustomed to make some research that I found these documents. I needed hours of research to discover that I was not the only one to interrogate me on this movement. The translations of the foreign sites are not perfected, but permit to seize the big lines, for those that don't master the original language. It asked me however for a lot of time and of energy, it is why he/it seemed discriminating to me to make benefit all of it those that want it.

I am not interested in the doctrinal side of this movement and his/her/its orthodoxy or no with such or such religion or belief, on the one hand because I am not on the subject a specialist and that other sites take care some, and, on the other hand, because what interests me is the mental manipulation and the alienation of the adepts of this movement.

However the testimonies that you will read are in agreement whatever are the country and show the sectarian ascendancy and the progressive loss of the liberty of thought of the individual.

It is not here about wondering about the beliefs that are let to the total discretion of each, but to the risks to which expose itself the individual tempted by this movement.

I let some articles however voluntarily of religious on this site because one of the manipulations exercised by the path is guilt and the fact to say that the one that criticizes the critical path the church and therefore God, what is a horrible thing to a believer's ears. These texts will permit to see as well as other sounds of clochent sound.

Thank you to read the first page in whole before clicking on a tie, and to record this page in your favorites to come back there because some ties take you on other sites (sometimes in foreign language). You will find testimonies of laymen there but also of people who is in the Catholic church (priests, bishops, etc..).

YOU NOW HAVE VARIOUS CATEGORIES to FACILITATE THE VISION OF EC VERY COMPLETE SITE (more than 2000 pages)!!! It is obvious that you will also find some analyses on the mental manipulation in the various categories, because the testimonies nearly approach all this problem.

The foreign versions won't be put more up-to-date for lack of time. Thank you for your understanding.

...Good surfing!!! This work doesn't have for goal that to rough down a little the raw stone \

Message for the former catechists of the path who moved away and understood that that was the path: If you possess the "tendency to the teams of catechists" for the stages (another one that for the conversion, since I already possess it), you can send them to me in all discretion, by promenade or mail (Sebastian NICOLAS 17 Rue Mère Dieu 79000 NIORT FRANCE), anonymity respects. Beforehand thank you.
