Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ
I have become increasingly disturbed by the advancement that the New Age Movement is having in society around us. I am a Christ Follower, bible believing, truth Seeking Christian. I realize that this new age movement is not something new to planet earth but because of modern technological advances, like the internet, movies, cell phones, tele conferencing and so forth, it is spreading like wild fire. The Oprah movement is not helping either, as she is shamelessly promoting New Age thinking and attitudes.
I am sorry I can no longer stay quiet on this issue, I have to address it. What is the issue? Well since man has been on this planet and sinned in the Garden of Eden, there has been this sinister undercurrent running through all societies.
New Age beliefs (not held by me, but I am using “I” to emphasize my point)
It is the belief that God is not really out there and real, it is the belief that if I still myself and look deep within, I will find a god in myself, I am god, that the issue of sin does not really exist, people just happen to do bad things. Evil is a matter of perspective and not really real.
I need to find a deeper enlightenment, because there is more than one way to heaven, if there is a place called heaven at all. I cannot possibly believe that if God did exist that he would be so cruel to punish his “son” and that really the cross and what they claim it did for the sin of the world, does not really exist.
I cannot believe that God would send people to Hell that makes him out to be so mean. I cannot believe that there is a God when there is all this hurt and mayhem in the world, because if there was a God then he would do something about it all. He would just fix it.
I need to accept that the universe/world/ inner self are my guide. Evolution of thinking teaches me to see myself as above those Christians in their archaic thinking,
There is no sin, therefore there are no consequences’, and I can do what I want, when I want and how I want.
If I do good to others, am a good person, give my time to the people in need, money to organizations that can help people, then that is all that I am responsible for. I am the master of my own destiny.
Therefore if there is no God, then it goes to reason, that children should not learn about something fictitious like that in school – hence no school prayers or mention of God. Yes you can be a practicing Buddhist, Muslim or any other faith, but if you are a Christian you are wrong, I don’t want to hear it, I don’t want my kids to hear it. We will slowly and systematically drive you out of our society!
Brothers and sisters, this kind of thinking is permeating every section of our society, from our schools to our boy scouts and girl guides to our churches and towns. We need to wake up and realize that this kind of thinking is real, it is out there and people are buying into it by the millions.
It is no longer acceptable for us to sit around and say nothing. People are dying out there and going to hell, because it is easier to believe a “Gospel of works and having an inner god and enlightenment” than actually believing that Jesus came to this earth to die for our sins.
The sins of mankind have driven a wedge between us and God, a Holy God. Who demands that we live in Holiness as well. Part of Holiness, is not partaking in the lies out there but also standing up for the truth.
There is nothing that we can do to “Work our way into heaven” we cannot sit for hours and meditate and do “good works to please the universe” friends, these are lies straight from the pit of hell.
The truth of the matter is that these “New Age thinkers” have their theology wrapped up in a doctrine from demons, the bible warns of that all of the time, they are infiltrating every part of society, they are teaching your children at school, they are the lawyers and Judges who make rulings for how our society is run.
I urge you today, if you are slack on getting into the word of God, stop, drop and pray. Repent for your tardiness, get back to the truth, only God’s truth will be able to keep you away from false teachers as well as enable you to reach out to others who are being deceived.
I urge you today to step up into the roles that God has placed in you to do. Participate in Society so that you will be a part of the solution to bring about a godly change for the good. Study the truth, hide it in your heart, teach it to your children so that they will not be deceived.
I will give you a little example of what is going on out in the real world as I saw it this weekend.
While my husband and I were walking through our local Wal-Mart and looking at the Christmas decorations I could not find a single nativity in the main aisles where the Christmas decorations were displayed. It was not until much later, when I had to go back to Wal-Mart and I went into their other separated part of seasonal stuff, that I found one very small display of nativity scenes.
That might not sound like anything to get upset about, but once again it reminded me that “The World” wants less and less to do with God, and more and more to do with their own “inner God of their Making”, God forgive us!!!!
Then on Friday evening, at our local light up the town for Christmas event, one of the town council members asked the people before they lit up the CHRISTMAS TREE, if he was allowed to called it a CHRISTMAS TREE OR SHOULD HE CALL IT A HOLIDAY TREE, he asked people to put up their hands if the name Christmas would offend anyone.
I nearly screamed at him that it offends me that you would even ask if I want to exclude my Lord and Savior from my life!!!! ahhhhhh.
So I shouted very loudly for him to hear that he needs to call it a Christmas tree.
Oh my friend, what is happening to our beautiful nation? They no longer think it necessary to Honor God who gives them life and breath!!!! My heart is sad and sickened.
It makes me even more determined to learn the truth, know it and teach it any way I can, as it is only truth that can set us free!!!!
Brothers and Sister, take a stand for The Truth of Christ today, don’t let these deceivers come in and deceive you, know the word of God and ask him to deepen your faith and walk with him daily.
Only God can strengthen and keep us safe until he comes again.
