The religion that’s synonymous with Tom Cruise is based on the beliefs and practices of American author L. Ron Hubbard.

As part of LADbible’s new Hindsight series, Jake Howie, sat down to reveal how he left the church.

Jake was born into a family of Scientologists and was raised in the church for the first decade of his life.

He said: “I think a lot of the time, these things start as such innocent, wonderful things.”

However, Jake began to notice that the movement didn’t encourage independent or critical thought.

He admitted that he enjoyed the comfort of being told what to think, describing it as ‘easy’.

Jake added: “If you’re ever anywhere where you can’t question what is being put before you, that’s a f**king cult.”

While he and his family began questioning the church’s motives, he revealed there was no divine moment that caused them to leave.

He said: “Slowly but surely, it’s like, ‘Ok, we’re not going every week, ok we’re not going every month’, ok the energy that they [parents] possessed for it slowly started to fade.”

He added: “I think the kind of reverb of that, I’ve never felt like I’m in a group since I left Scientology.

“I don’t know if that’s because I was young and I liked being part of it, and then what I got from it was that kind of like
