In 1960 Roy Masters started Americas first conservative talk radio show on KTYM in Los Angeles, California. Roy Masters and his Advice Line radio program continue today as an institution on radio. Advice Line is currently broadcast nationwide on a 130 radio stations and available via the internet. For more see http://www.fhu.com/aboutroy.html
Previous show: http://www.fhu.com
For 48 years, Roy Masters has been sounding the trumpet trying to warn America of the threats of the Marxist dialetic. Now his prophetic warnings have come to pass. So where do we go from here?
Just WHO is this man???
I listen to Roy on XM radio as I fall to sleep (He has a relaxing voice and very few commercials if any). I think I heard him mention a cd that everyone needs to listen to and is available for free and should be passed around. What is it, or was I only dreaming that? Didn’t see anything like that on his site.
Never mind... I think it was the be still and know download.
Thanks! I need to listen more closely when I am wide awake.
Roy did say he would be back live tomorrow, so at least you can call him tomorrow nite. :-)
The TRUTH ABOUT ROY MASTERS he is a kook; a deciever, an idiot that has had his followers lose everything to him.
Roy Masters: Foundation of Human Understanding
Roy Masters, founder and director, was born Reuben Obermeister to a Jewish family in London, England. At age 15 he worked at his uncle’s diamond-cutting factory in Brighton after his father died.
As a young boy he became interested in hypnotism. He added to his hypnotism techniques after studying African witchdoctor rites during his apprenticeship at South African diamond mines when he was 18.
He came to America in 1949, at age 21, to lecture on diamonds. He legally changed his name to Roy Masters in 1954 (yet never acquired American citizenship) and eventually became a professional hypnotist claiming he could “save people by teaching them self-sufficiency meditative hypnosis.”
The American Medical Association pressed charges against him for practicing medicine without a license. He was sentenced to 30 days in jail. He likens this “persecution” to the persecution Jesus suffered.
He is a self-described “Christian mystic” combining Eastern mysticism and Gnosticism with Christian jargon, yoga, hypnotism and self-help principles.
As with other Eastern-oriented cults, The Foundation of Human Understanding teaches that God is both personal and impersonal, advocating an almost pantheistic God.
In lieu of dependence on Jesus Christ for salvation, Masters teaches dependence on his meditation techniques. He teaches that mankind is inherently good, thus there is no need for salvation or a savior.
All problems man encounters can be resolved through self effort.
“No form of outer assistance can substitute for inner direction. Direction must come always from within. Moved by the spirit of intuition, we move without excitement, effort or strain. The more we exercise our dependency upon the Within, the stronger this relationship becomes, and we know it to be Grace,” (How To Keep Your Mind Well, p. 165, Foundation Press, 1971).
Though he claims to have been saved by the blood of Christ, he states that “one of the biggest curses in Christendom is the false idea that Jesus is God.”
According to the late Dr. Walter Martin, the Foundation does not mention the Holy Spirit in any of its publications (The New Cults, p. 310).
Instead of relying on the Holy Spirit for comfort and guidance, followers are taught to rely on themselves (made possible through successful meditation).
During the meditative process, subjects are taught to surrender all disbelief and to relinquish control to Masters.
The Foundation of Human Understanding headquarters is in Los Angeles, California where Masters’ self-help brand of religion is offered to an audience of 3 million people via his national radio program, “How Your Mind Can Keep You Well.”
In 1982, about 2,000 disciples followed Masters to a 378-acre ranch in Oregon. He holds seminars and weekend retreats at the ranch and is currently establishing Evelyn Street School, a Foundation institute for kindergarten through 12th grade there.
In 1989, Masters claimed to have 150,000 people on his mailing list. Over 100,00 have purportedly participated in his courses. His meditation exercise is taught on three cassettes and a book for a total cost of $25.00.
Participants in his week-long seminars pay $1,200 and $50 for one-day seminars held across the country. Masters says he wants to be remembered in the same category as Moses, Jesus, the apostles, Buddha, Gandhi, Martin Luther King and John F. Kennedy.

Cult Periodical: New Dimensions - A Master’s Magazine
The Washington Times, Insight (Unification Church), World Monitor (Christian Science), are not the only quality conservative publications owned by the cults.
New Dimensions is a slick and staunchly conservative magazine which sports frequent syndicated articles by Cal Thomas, Phyllis Schlafly, Pat Buchanan, Jeane Kilpatrick, William Safire and William F. Buckley, Jr. It has also received the endorsement of Concerned Women of America.
There is another name whose articles also appear in every issue. That name is Roy Masters. Masters is the controversial leader of the new age meditation and mind control cult, the Foundation of Human Understanding (FHU). The by-line of each of Master’s articles states that he is “an internationally recognized expert on stress management.”
Masters operates his church of several thousand, many of whom moved with Masters, along with the magazine to Grants Pass, Oregon. He also maintains a syndicated radio program, How Your Mind Can Keep You Well which airs on a number of stations around the country.
Like the Baghwan Rajneesh, Masters has been the center of controversy with the law and with his neighbors. Salvation and successful living in the FHU is obtained through new age meditation, tuning in to the direction from your own “intuition” which he calls “Reality” consciousness, the “Light,” and “Truth within” (Introduction to Meditation, FHU, 1981, p. 3).
Masters typical approach at his gatherings is to engage in hypnosis/meditation exercises with his followers who he jokingly calls “Roybots.” He then performs “exorcisms” by touching people on the forehead with a wooden cross.
He normally castigates, insults, and ridicules his listeners in a domineering controlling manner. Masters says “I could get people to die for me any day. I’ve got more power over people than Adolph Hitler and Jim Jones combined, because I’m smarter. I know how to push people’s buttons” (Los Angeles Times, 12/3/78).
Master’s meditation exercises, reproduced on three cassette tapes and a book, are classic progressive relaxation techniques which are standard hypnosis/meditation induction methods. This state leaves a person highly suggestible, with difficulty in distinguishing between reality and fantasy.
In a l984 interview with US magazine, Masters said, “I am a man without sin... I bring out the evil alien force that controls people.”
The public relations department of New Dimension claims that Masters sued US magazine and won but Watchman Fellowship has discovered that US was sold to Rolling Stone magazine and the lawsuit was negated (data sheet from the Cult Awareness Network).
The US article goes on to quote Masters, “I’d like to earn a reputation so I’m remembered in the same breath as Moses, Jesus, the Apostles, Buddha, Gandhi, Martin Luther King, and John F. Kennedy” (US, 4/23/84, p. 41).
Besides having a different God, different Jesus, different gospel, and having a controlling, authoritative leader, the FHU also displays other cultic characteristics. A cult often uses deception and duplicity, with hidden agendas.
The public relations office of New Dimensions is communicating that the magazine has no connection with FHU, that the editor, Mark Masters, does not agree with his father, it is owned by Publishers Press, and that the only connection Roy Masters has is that he donated the seed money which is being paid back (telephone conversation with WLBF).
When checking on the validity of this information, it was discovered that Publishers Press had no phone number. Its average monthly 110,000 copies are actually published in a two-story house next to FHU’s church building (Washington Post, 11/29/90, p. 9).
In addition, New Dimensions assumed its new name in 1986 from what was formerly the Iconoclast, the official publication of FHU.
New Dimensions itself was listed as “a monthly publication of the Foundation of Human Understanding” as late as the June 1988 issue.
Mark and David Masters have certainly been active members of FHU as they have been part of numerous lawsuits with the “church.” The December 1990 issue has its mandatory legal notice buried in the back in fine print which lists FHU as the only major stockholder of New Dimensions.
The question remains for Christians whether or not they want to particpate with cult enterprises.
To pharaphase what Jesus prayed to the Father, we are not to be taken out of the world but are to be protected while in the world. We must be salt and light while involved in the arenas of life.
But as John Lofton of the Conservative Digest stated, “Masters is a false prophet and theological fraud” and was critical of Christians who embraced the magazine (Ibid).
Christians must decide if the end of getting out our conservative message justifies the means, furthering the influence and platform of a destructive cult.
Oh gee whiz, here we go again, another brainwashed retread, sorry FRiend, you’re a bit late to the party, already been there done that, you guys seem to want to use the same ol’ tired used and re-used slanderous material. Pls go here and enjoy..........
Do you have a brain? Do you believe everything you read or do you find things out independently on your own? I am a 'follower' of Roy Masters and I haven't lost a thing to him 'cept my former evil liberal ways, how is that a problem to you?
You dredge up these articles of half-truths from over 25-30 years ago when the Marxist left and the Christian right combined to use the same tactics trying to smear him as a cult. It didn't work, he's only gotten bigger and stronger.
Roy Masters doesn't operate some secret compound hidden away in Oregon where he brainwashes his followers to give up all their assets to them as he sexually abuses all of them. He doesn't even have a church that one can belong to.
On the contrary he is as open about his beliefs as he can be having put them in 15 books, in addition having broadcast his beliefs to the nation and now to the world for 48 years and now on over 100 radio stations and XM along with the internet.
In addition he helped establish Talkradionetwork which now employs such notables as Michael Savage, Laura Ingraham, Tammy Bruce, Rusty Humphries, Jerry Doyle, Phil Hendrie, Monica Crowley and others, are they all part of this Masters cult too?
He also makes available all his seminars for purchase and now opens his door to a live audience every Sunday morning, and broadcasts the proceedings online for all the world to see and participate, so with all this openness possible now due to talkradio and the internet, ANYONE can easily make their own judgments about Roy Masters and no longer have to depend on the biases of the Marxist media or right wing fundamentalist fringe groups like this Watchmen organization like they did 30 years ago.
Roy Masters is a great American patriot who migrated to this country because of the strong values its people used to subscribe too, he has attempted to assimilate and live the American dream and try to help this country maintain and return to the creed that made it the greatest country that ever existed. I am blessed to have known of him and I merely wish to give my fellow Freepers the opportunity to also get to know him, you are free to disagree with him all you want but please be fair and get your facts straight before you do.
What are you talking about. I’ve heard this guy on and off since college and he advocates a journey of self via quiet meditation.
He offers a quiet type of meditation technique that helps people overcome problems and move ahead solely through their principle in agreement with the Creator.
Sounds pretty libertarian to me. About as far removed from Scientology and such as you can get.
