Woman warns South Korean religious sect recruiting in Auckland

From Morning Report, 7:52 am on 12 July 2021

A woman who spent years in a South Korean religious sect operating in Auckland is warning others of its recruitment techniques.

Shincheonji Church of Jesus has been described as a doomsday cult, and is led by a man claiming to be the 'promised pastor' mentioned in the bible.

The woman says she was introduced to it through someone who she first believed was a friend with little interest in religion.
