Wait a second, am I in a cult?’ Student reveals she was ‘brainwashed’ into joining secretive South-Korean Shincheonji church on University of Salford campus and ended up having her ‘every move controlled’

A student has revealed how she was ‘brainwashed’ into joining a South Korean cult who ‘controlled what she did and who she saw’ while on campus at university.

Jess, from Manchester, was ‘vulnerable’ having recently lost her father when she was approached by two strangers from the Shincheonji Church of Jesus at the University of Salford and invited to ‘coffee with god’.

While the meetings simply began as weekly Bible study groups, things quickly evolved and soon Jess found the group was controlling who she saw and what she did. 

Speaking to the BBC, she said she became a ‘completely different person’ while in the cult, explaining: ‘Controlling others for me is really out of character, so that’s how far in I’d gotten into being brainwashed.’
