False Prophets

(2022-Present)

Would you believe?​

If you were to ask someone to give a list of five prophets/religious leaders it would most likely all be men. This is often the case. HOWEVER there have been many women throughout history, and currently today, that through their charisma and personality have developed followings, been prophets, leaders of cults.  And with that power, they have in some way used it for negative and selfish ends. To influence manipulate, take advantage of, abuse, torture, and in some cases even murder. 

So far, I have discovered 37 women that fit my description, of being a false prophet.
