Mita; What Is It?

Updated on May 10, 2015

A Gringo who moved to Puerto Rico, Greg loves writing about the island he now resides on. He and Maria also wrote several bilingual books...

Our objective was to go to the grocery store and pick up a few items that we were short of. It was Saturday night and in a way, Maggie and I were bored. As I drove through the traffic my mind was wandering to just after I had wrote the hub Santeria; What Is It?. Maggie had told me I needed to look into Mita. I asked her what Mita was and she had laughed and in our "inside joke" she said,"Google it." I asked her about Mita again and she asked me if I wanted to see. I am always up for it. We set the car's direction to Hato Rey in the San Juan area of Puerto Rico.

When we reached the area, Maggie told me to look for a well-lit temple and people dressed all in white. It didn't take long and my nerves got shaky as we drove into a two square block area that felt like it's own little world. The temple was right in front of me. There were people all dressed in white and guards that looked like they were in police uniforms everywhere. These guards looked at us like we had no business there and a police looking car blocked the road immediately behind us. I was a little scared but wanted to see more. We drove by the entrance of the temple and I saw a sea of white.

We drove back around and I saw these people that looked as if they were zombies. The people , in general, seemed "stuck" in their own little world.

Mita owns building upon building. I wonder where all the money came from to finance all of these. It looks to me like many of the people live there on site. Why there are so-so many guards just had me wondering. For a group that supposedly puts so much trust in God, why do they need that many want-to-be police officers.

I started reading their web site and I am flabbergasted. There had to be at least 6-8000 people in that temple last night and from what I read here, I see a cult. Plain and simple, a cult that worship one man that they believe is full of God or even that he is a god.

I didn't take pictures that night as there were so many people, but we did drive back. The pictures you see from me are not wonderful. From the inside of a car with people in white all around and guards. Check out some of the pictures I took and I will share some of their own pictures from their web-site.

Their Views

Many of this groups views are very close to truth, but...

Let me explain how it started:

In 1897 Juanita García Peraza was born into a Catholic family. Later she developed an illness and claimed she was divinely healed. She believed the Holy Spirit gave her a prophetic tongue and she started a Free church. this was Pentecostal. She did missionary work and did many things for the community. Juanita created a Corps of Guards which were police for all the churches she started.

Juanita was known as Mita and the churches were named after her. She started churches in many parts of the world including the United States.

Mita had a disciple named Teófilo Vargas Seín, who was known as Aaron. When her health deteriorated and she died in 1970, the reigns of the church were left to Aaron.

They have expanded into many areas. I am leaving a link to their web site. Please think before getting involved with such a sect.

God did not send the Holy Spirit to enter just one man or woman. We are all to listen to the Holy Spirit's guidance.

This is a cult. I have found videos of people who were members of Mita and escaped. These videos are all in Spanish, so I won't post them.

I will post a video of our Secretary of State: Hillary Clinton when she was running for President actually campaigned at the Mita temple. What was she thinking? Look at the sea of white. These people are forced to always wear white. All men are to be clean shaven; where does it say that in the Bible? I believe many of the members of Mita are brainwashed and probably donate everything they have to Aaron and this so-called church.

Now I am a firm believer in God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, but I don't believe this is what God wanted. We are not to be deceived, and many in this group are deceived. 2 Timothy 3:13-15 tells us: But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. But continue in the things which you have learned and have been assured of, knowing of whom you have learned them; And that from a child you have known the holy scriptures, which are able to make you wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

Watch the following video and learn a little more about Mita; please pray for them and pray for Hillary too. Her ignorance really showed here.

The following link is to the Mita web site.

Please don't fall into their trap. It comes in English and Spanish. There is even a live feed to their services. Please pray; these people need your prayers.

May God bless Puerto Rico.

      Good Hub and let's all keep praying for those who walk in darkness could find the light in God.

      Grandmothers in Puerto Rico are called "abuelita" to shorten it some say "mita".

      Politicians don't care for people's rights, benefits or necessities...all they are looking for is to be elected.

      I was one of those who say..why vote, but now I understand that we really need to take away all these empty heads that are trying to govern us.

      Scares ME!

      First off, I've found that whenever you have a church with a Hispanic leader using a Jewish name, you are in major cult cit-tay.

      Aside from that silliness, though, Mita is, by very definition, a cult: "Religion regarded as unorthodox or spurious; also : its body of adherents"

      When you add in the money factor and anything having a "Clinton" in it, I think it's reasonable to assume that these white-dressed-weirdos are not selling Good Humor Ice Cream.

      Good heads-up!
