How will it help me get rolling? Take a dive into the dark history of one of America's most notorious religious cults
Jim Jones, as a child, was both sympathetic and sadistic; he sought power and control above all else.
Jones found his true calling in the pulpit of the church, and he crafted a charismatic public persona there.
The message of racial and social equality from Jones in the late 1960s made him popular and influential.
Using deception and sneaky schemes helped Jones attract more people to join his Peoples Temple.
As Jones tightened his grip on his followers, he persuaded his cult to move the church to Guyana.
Jones was inspired by an official visit to call for a revolutionary suicide and commit his followers to death.
