The New Age... An Overview... Index

But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons, [1 Timothy 4:1 NASB

The Message of the Bible   and  The Warnng of The Bible
Far from being outdated, out of touch, and largely irrelevant to modern society, the Kingdom of God Jesus was sent to earth to proclaim (No, His main message wasn’t about ‘love’) is exactly the utopian world most men and women can only dream of, not some pie-in-the-sky ethereal place the other side of Pluto where everyone exists in a state of disembodied blessedness. However, there is also a warning. The Bible very clearly tells us that we all have a choice to make in this life - the most important decision we will ever make. And, if the Bible is indeed the word of God, as it claims to be, and Jesus is the Son of God as He said He was, the consequences for the individual who chooses to ignore the ample evidence, or counter it with clever arguments, will be fatal.

Choose Life That You Might Live. It is tragically true that few of those who believe 'all spiritual beliefs are valid paths to God" seem to have made an in depth study of various religions to see if their claims are based on fact, or fairy dust. In fact, all too many people seem to be prejudiced against the Bible, but well disposed towards other 'holy books' like the Qur’an, the Bhagavad-Gita, the Book of Mormon or the  unsubstantiated gobbledygook spouted by ‘spirit guides’ who do not even present a shred of evidence that they are who they claim to be. This is a rather illogical situation, because there is far a plethora of evidence in favor of the Bible being true, including it's humanly impossible authorship, the scientific, historical and archaeological corroboration, and the many fulfilled prophecies... none of which are seen in the books of other religions/beliefs.

This is a long article, but I see no way to condense it. The sheer magnitude and importance of the topic warrants detailed information. As Warren Smith so rightly says, When storms with the potential to kill are just offshore, reasonable people make reasonable preparations. They don't party in the face of the impending danger. They don't sit on their front porches pretending that nothing is happening.

Jesus warned in Scripture that storms would come. He particularly warned about those that would come at the end of time, not to be negative or to scare us, but to prepare us, so that we would not be deceived nor intimidated, nor frightened into compromising or questioning our faith. This is not a time for celebration. This is not a time for the church to be expecting some kind of a special blessing. This is a time to be sober and vigilant.. to watch and pray... to be spiritually prepared... to be warning your family and friends about what is happening in the world. In the words of the apostle Peter...

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: (1 Peter 5:8–9)

Note: the first part of the article deals with some generalities about the New Age... origins, general beliefs, popularity, hybridization & expansion etc. It is the second part of the article that deal with a specific aspect of the New Age beliefs and practices that is crucially important.

Note Also that I have, as always, hesitated to use the word "demonic" or "demons", simply because both words tend to conjure up visions of what we perceive devils to look like... horns, tails, bad teeth, red eyes and pitchforks... beings that are slightly more amusing than intimidating.  However, the "masters" referred to here do not even faintly resemble our preconceived ideas. Much to the contrary, they are very powerful, highly intelligent beings, with immense powers and abilities... against whom our only defense is God.
