The powerful technologies of Dianetics and Scientology provide nothing less than the means
to attain true spiritual freedom and immortality for everyone who begins the journey toward
that goal. Technology like this never existed before, and millions around the world personally
regard it as valuable beyond comparison. They know that when this technology is applied
precisely as written by L. Ron Hubbard — and with their honest and ethical participation
— they will achieve the spiritual benefit they seek through Scientology one hundred percent
of the time.
Religious Technology Center (RTC) exists to ensure that this can
occur. Its purpose is to protect the public from misapplication of the technology and to see
that the religious technologies of Dianetics and Scientology remain in proper hands and
are properly ministered.
Monitoring and enforcing the purity of technical application, and guaranteeing
standard administration is no small task. Historically, every religion has
experienced periods during which growth has met with alterations of religious
doctrine and practice and even outright derailment from the initial mission.
Spiritual movements and religious denominations throughout the ages have suffered
the destructive influences of infighting and struggles for power.
