Former members of a Korean cult operating in Aotearoa say they were told to “lie for God”, and want the group stripped of its charitable status. Melanie Earley reports.

John* and Audrey* describe Shincheonji as “insidious and devious”.

The couple spent two and a half years at the Auckland branch of the Korean religious group, and say they now recognise they were “trapped in a cult”.

They’re among a number of former members spoken to by Stuff who are concerned to hear Shincheonji is now a registered charity – and they want Charities Services to investigate.
