I wish to acutely appearance you in this address how the attack of the NAM and of the bible are diametrically opposed.
The New Age Movement (NAM) is a revamped aggregate of age-old religious, traditions and practices. The movement gets its name from the acceptance in the actualization of the “Age of Aquarius”. In accession to age-old influences, the NAM is acutely abiding in the counterculture movement of the 1960′s. Note: For brevity purposes, in this address I accredit to the New Age Movement as the NAM.
It is harder to get an appraisal of the amount of New Age believers back it encompasses so abounding acceptance systems (such as reincarnation, the occult, etc.). In America abandoned it is estimated that 10,000,000 bodies accept in or convenance the NAM in one way or another. However, if you add accompanying behavior such as in reincarnation, and added Far Eastern behavior in the USA and the world; afresh the all-around associates is believed to be much, abundant greater. It absolutely fits the description of a harlot adoration as declared in end time bible prophecies.
A accepted acceptance a allotment of the NAM is that flesh has or will anon access a new age accepted as the Age of Aquarius, whereby man will assuredly appear to embrace love, joy, peace, abundance, and accord a allotment of peoples and nations; the Golden Age of man. So based on what is accident about the apple today, it is bright that this new age of accord is boilerplate in sight.
I am traveling to acutely appearance you how the attack of the NAM and of the bible are diametrically opposed. You CANNOT accept in the God of the bible if you embrace the New Age philosophy. I wish to re-emphasize that they are diametrically against – complete opposites! They are like ablaze against darkness, day vs. night, like polarity, and to bread a byword accustomed with New Agers – they are opposites like “Yin and Yang”.
The Genesis of the New Age Movement (NAM)
The appellation New Age refers to the advancing abstruse Age of Aquarius. It is agnate to the Mayan acceptance in abstracted ages. According to the Age of Aquarius believers, the planet goes through ample ample cycles which can be articular astrologically; the above-mentioned two thousand years were declared as the Age of Pisces, which has now accustomed way to the Age of Aquarius. This age is believed to endure for about 2000 years, afore getting replaced by addition age. However, the “new” in the words “New Age” are ambiguous to activate with. Although they represent that it is new because of a declared new age that will be heralded in by abstruse signs (Age of Aquarius and added Astrometry influences), about every added acceptance and convenance accept age-old roots.
Even the NAM’s “New Age of Aquarius” affair is old account – it is Astrometry based. Astrometry has been about back age-old times – it is the acceptance that the adorable bodies affect bodies throughout their activity cycle.
The abstruseness of the stars and all-embracing movements is something that attracts abounding followers to the NAM; but the NAM is just rehashing old acceptance and adorning it as if the movement of the afterlife Aquarius will somehow absolution some affectionate of all-powerful aspect into man; converting man to a God or Goddess. Affectionate of sounds like age-old Egyptian, Greek, Babylonian and Roman Acceptance all over afresh – doesn’t it? To apprentice added about the basis of and the
Many practices of this band movement such as astrology, clairvoyance, divination, witchcraft/sorcery, diabolism (consulting the dead), and spiritism are acutely and acerb accursed in Scripture (Deuteronomy 18: 9-17; Isaiah 47: 9-15; Rev. 17). Abounding of these abstruse practices originated from the abstruseness religions of the age-old Assyrian-Babylonian, Chaldeans, and Egyptians.
Both evangelical Christians and Catholics accept bidding affair over the NAM and its influence. The Roman Catholic Church for archetype appear A Christian absorption on the New Age in 2003, afterward a six-year study; the 90-page certificate criticizes New Age practices such as yoga, meditation, feng shui, and bright healing. According to the Vatican, beatific states accomplished through New Age practices should not be abashed with adoration or beheld as signs of God’s presence.
The NAM’s Lord Maitreya
Regarding Nam’s affirmation of the advancing “Christ” their Lord Maitreya” – it is absorbing how abounding cults attack to adjure the name of Christ in an attack to legitimize or add believability to their own acceptance and apocryphal doctrines.
Other anti-Christian article aural NAM is that one of the requirements for a getting to access the New Age is that he or she will accept to yield what is accepted as a “Luciferic Initiation,” an adherence of sorts to the god of the New Age and to his proposed New Apple Order.
Although the NAM appears to accept a advanced access to all religions, its basal aesthetics undermines the Judeo-Christian acceptance and all of its beliefs; in that one of NAMs axiological practices is Gnosticism; the Luciferic assumption that “divinity” lies central of man and not abandoned aural the absolute God of the universe. They accept that it is accustomed for man to adoration man or self, as man is god.
It bears a arresting affinity to the backslider apple adoration that H.G. Wells had predicted that flesh would embrace at a approaching time.
More chiefly is the affinity amid the NAMs ambition for a common adoration and Antichrist’s one apple adoration that will be accepted by all unbelievers at the time of the end as prophesied in the Book of Revelation (Rev. 13, 17).
In the afterward ballad you can acting “the beast” with the absorbing getting who will ascendancy all commerce, and will appeal the adoration of all unbelievers at the time of the end; which the New Agers alarm the Maitreya:
Below are some specific areas were New Age and Christian attack are diametrically opposed; and the aboriginal two should get your attention!
Christianity – Lucifer is Satan
New Age – Lucifer is the accurate son of God
Christianity – awaits Christ’s 2nd coming
New Age – awaits the one apple government of Maitreya
Christianity – Jesus is God
New Age – Jesus is one of many
Christianity – we are adored by grace
New Age – We accomplish Godhood through works
Christianity – Jesus is the way
New Age – our Christ-Consciousness is the way to salvation
Christianity – we have to adoration God
New Age – we have to adoration the creation
Christianity – we will be resurrected
New Age – we will be reincarnated
Christianity – the chat is truth
New Age – the accuracy is within
Christianity – Sin have to be overcome
New Age – there is no sin
Christianity – Christ is our redeemer
New Age – we actualize our own divinity
Christianity – God is the creator
New Age – altruism has acquired abstracted of God
The NAM is a actual Circuitous Acceptance System
It is difficult to not achieve that the New Age Movement is an advised accomplishment to abash and mislead flesh with a countless of practices for accomplishing “godhood”; including and not bound to: Astrology, Bio-energy,
Chi energy, Esoteric cosmology, Nirvana, Abstruse practices, reincarnation, catholic consciousness, and just about annihilation abroad as continued as it is not Christian based!
If this NAM is not an advised attack to discredit the Christian faith, and to accumulate its followers abashed for a lifetime aggravating to accept the aspect of its faith, afresh I do not apperceive what its cold absolutely is.
It seems as if the New Age movement is so bizarre and credibility in so abounding admonition as to accumulate its followers in a accompaniment of inertia, clumsy to acquisition the one and abandoned alley that leads to all-powerful truth. The accuracy in the bible is so bright and simple, yet man wants to complicate it all with circuitous acceptance systems congenital on half-truths and lies; which is absolutely what the prince of black wants – to accumulate us all in the dark!
God and the NAM
Since to the NAM absoluteness with cocky is the ultimate goal, God is abandoned our afterlife already we apprehend ability with self. To the NAM God is not the absolute getting that Christians accept he is. He is instead just a allotment of conception – he is the accomplished aspect of creation. They accept in “monism” acceptation one – so that God and all of conception are one. It is because of this analogue that they affirmation we are all gods.
The NAM misquotes the bible to prove their article of oneness. For instance they decidedly like to adduce Jesus’ words “the commonwealth of God is aural you” begin in Luke 17:21. If translated in the aboriginal Greek, what Jesus was adage in Luke 17:21 was that the Commonwealth of God (Jesus) was in their bosom at that specific moment in time.
This description is aswell able if Jesus declared that He abandoned is the way to the Commonwealth of God. In John 14:6 Jesus said: “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
The NAM has got it all amiss again, as it is absurd for us to be gods, as there is ONLY ONE GOD! Even Satan knew that it was absurd for us to be God. This is why in Genesis Chapter 3, he was accurate to betoken that we would be “like God”. And even actuality he was implying that we would be “like God” apropos just one tiny aspect – which was attaining the “knowing acceptable and evil.”
In Allotment 2, we will analyze the NAM’s angle on Jesus, salvation, sin, self-improvement, acceptable and evil, Satan and Lucifer, and more.
