What would you do if you learned one day that your spiritual teacher sexually harassed his male disciples and covered up his sexual affairs- a plagiarist who lifted his teachings from other traditions without due reference- a spendthrift who livedMoreWhat would you do if you learned one day that your spiritual teacher sexually harassed his male disciples and covered up his sexual affairs- a plagiarist who lifted his teachings from other traditions without due reference- a spendthrift who lived extravagantly, though he took a vow of poverty- a questionable business man who engaged in risky and possibly illegal activities- and a religious charlatan who consistently told untruths about a variety of issues?Break-off your discipleship?

Leave the organization? Stay with the movement? How would you feel? Shocked, disgusted, saddened? Or, perhaps, a strong sense of rationalization: okay, he may be sexually manipulative, a plagiarist, a crook, and a liar, but I have benefitted from him spiritually!Right now this is the dilemma of several members of M.S.I.A. (Movement of Spiritual Inner Awareness) who believe that their teacher John-Roger has misled them and thousands of others. Based primarily upon the personal testimony of disciples of John-Roger about his hidden life, a scandal of devastating proportions has begun to rock the Movements international membership.

This article, the first of its kind, will take a close look at the present controversy, addressing the larger issue of how new religious groups should be studied in light of legitimacy and authenticity.
