Woman Quits Delta Sigma Theta Because It’s A Cult
Do you think college greek organizations are satanic cults?
An open letter published on Memoirs of a Virtuous Woman by a former Delta Sigma Theta Inc. member claims she quit the org because of its cult-like qualities. Angela Crenshaw, the denouncing Delta, explains why she no longer is a part of Greekdom…
I am denouncing my membership with Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Incorporated. When I first joined, I was so blinded by my desires to be a part of the organization and didn’t focus on God’s will. Different pastors and ministers would speak on the Christian principles of the organization, but I realized how can you be a Christian organization and not mention Jesus Christ? He is the foundation of CHRISTianity. (Pastors and ministers are human too). The rituals mention God but in order to get to God you must first go through the son, Jesus Christ. (John 14:6) Also if the organization is founded on Christian principles why did the founders think it was okay to place Minerva (Roman Goddess) on the shield that I wore across my heart? I thought what if my church placed her as a representation, do you know how many people would have an issue, or outsiders call us hypocrites. However, in Delta why do the Christians find it okay?
The former member later discusses what made her come to the turning point:
A national president took the entire 1 Corinthians 13 and changed the biblical scripture around to glorify Delta. I had a tug in my heart like “umm can we do that?” No, that is disrespectful to God and his Word. You are misusing the word to glorify the organization which comes off very prideful and blasphemy. It takes the focus on God and places the focus on Delta. There are other finding where scripture is misused.
Crenshaw goes on to explain why denouncing Delta is so important to her spirtual journey:
Some may say, “Does it matter?” Yes, it does. God tell us to separate ourselves from darkness and anything not of Him is darkness. The enemy will try to disguise himself in so many different ways. If you want to serve in the community, you still can without being tied to a sorority. If you want a sisterhood, join a church and God will give you godly sisters. Was it hard for me to step out at first? Yes, but I had to remind myself that this life is temporary and everything here on Earth will fade away. I love God and want to follow His word. I also didn’t want to hesitate when life is over and I am standing before God as he questions me about being a part of this and reciting and representing Minerva. Jesus loves us so much He wants us to in his light, not Satan’s darkness.
