New Age Infiltration of the Church

Updated on December 20, 2018
PlanksandNails profile image

PlanksandNails' goal is to be a catalyst in encouraging others to pursue truth and what it means to worship the one true God.

We are in a time where New Age philosophy has infiltrated the world. Many are embracing the revelations and esoteric knowledge of occult practices and are applying them as 'worship' to God. The mainstream leaders falsely teach that it is okay to supposedly 'redeem' occult practices and reclaim them for God.

New Age spirituality is here and it is paving the way for idolatry that is an abomination to God.

The Tools of Deception

New Age ideology within Christianity is taking a practice that is evil and calling it 'good' as a means of attaining God. them back for God’s Kingdom. The manifestation of it is the promotion of signs and wonders, contemplative prayer, meditation, yoga, trances, orbs, clairvoyance, impartation, empowerment, etc.

Christianity is pagan worship of God repackaged with religious lingo and terminology. Those who are called, 'Pastors' and 'Prophets' are really gurus and shamans.

New Age practices are prevalent and welcomed by the deluded masses who believe that there can be a bridge between New Age beliefs and God. They believe they can obtain power to perform miracles. They believe that the special empowered elite are called to control the world as they attain the next level of spirituality by accessing the vibrations or frequencies of God that are embedded in the fabric of creation.

These New Age paradigm turns God into a form of cosmic energy that can be accessed from His creation.

I am the LORD; that is my name; my glory I give to no other, nor my praise to carved idols. – Isaiah 42:8

For I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me - Isaiah 46:9

New Age Christianity

New Age Christianity will always promote some kind of revival or a spiritual shift to evolve mankind to the next level.

Many are pursuing false signs and wonders wanting worldwide revival. Many fail to understand that this revival is the promotion of a New World Order.

Don’t be deceived, you cannot take occult and pagan practices and use it as an opportunity to obtain the power of God. There is no such thing as gurus, spirit guides, contemplative prayer, mystical experiences, astral projection, etc, as a means of worshipping God.

New Age Christianity will empty your mind and fills you and will destroy having a relationship with God. He is not a force of energy that can be captured and controlled as a means to transcend to a higher consciousness.

Be warned! Those who promote signs and wonders have abandoned God's word.

If there will arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of a dream, and he gives you a sign or a wonder, and the sign or the wonder of which he spoke to you happens, [and he] says, "Let us go after other gods which you have not known, and let us worship them," you shall not heed the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of a dream; for the Lord, your God, is testing you, to know whether you really love the Lord, your God, with all your heart and with all your soul. - Deuteronomy 13:2-4

The Occult Cloaked in Christianese

The worst religious deception are here. Ancient Babylonian occult practices have been revived as people are worshiping God through the paranormal.

Christian titles are cloaked names for guru, shaman, witch and warlock who channel evil spirits among the people. Many believe that psychic phenomenon and the paranormal is the Holy Spirit.

The New Age invasion is right in front of our eyes, but too many are blinded and distracted with their feel good experiences than heed the words of God.

Through their vain imaginations, they believe that God responds to their positive thinking and pop psychology. They believe that behaving in a certain way summons God to move to their personal bidding. This is sorcery and witchcraft. All the supposed health, wealth and spiritual empowerment does not come from God, but is the manifestation of choosing evil.

New Age ideologies promote self-esteem rather than being humble and obedient before God. Rather, it is all about attaining your human potential and becoming a deity like God. The word sin and repentance are foreign concepts for what tickles the ears.

The supposed 'revival' that is taking place in Christianity sphere is the manifestation of idolatry. The glossy-eyed masses ignore their sinful behaviours and the call to repentance and holiness for a positive self-image.

The Ecumenical Agenda

Christianity is here to stay with an ecumenical agenda that will accommodate all false religions except those who truly obey God and His commands. The New Age concepts of peace and unity point to counterfeit gods, counterfeit angels, counterfeit miracles, counterfeit forms of godliness, counterfeit good works, counterfeit doctrines, counterfeit people of God.

Their 'truth' has become so perverted that evil is called good and good is called evil.

It is impossible to receive God’s salvation through blatant heresy.

Many do not even know how to read Scripture for themselves. They have put their trust and faith into mere men who blind them with cotton candy theology. This creates people who do not accept the fundamentals of obeying God.

Christianity is full of people who claim revelations through visions, dreams and prophecies that enable selfish religious hypocrisy to flourish. Their pagan practices outrightly deny God.

Healing that is claimed within Christianity is the result of practicing occult sorcery and magic. These things Have no resemblance to God's patterns as documented in Scripture.

The manifestation of podiums, altars and pulpits for man to perch upon does not show humility and reverence towards God. Religious men claim to have revelation from God and appears to be sent from God, but the wares they sell point to the worship of other gods.

The New Age agenda is here. Do not be deceived. Start reading the God's word for yourself. You may be shocked to discover you have been lied to.

Christianity is here to stay with an ecumenical agenda that will accommodate all false religions except those who truly obey God and His commands. The New Age concepts of peace and unity point to counterfeit gods, counterfeit angels, counterfeit miracles, counterfeit forms of godliness, counterfeit good works, counterfeit doctrines, counterfeit people of God.

Their 'truth' has become so perverted that evil is called good and good is called evil.

Woe to those who say of the evil that it is good and of the good that it is evil; who present darkness as light and light as darkness, who present bitter as sweet and sweet as bitter. - Isaiah 5:20

Healing Takes Place In Other Religions Too

      Neil,

      I appreciate the concern. Unfortunately, the Related Hubs feed is not a feature that can be turned on or off. It is based on tags and topics within the Hubpages platform that automatically suggests "similar" articles based on certain criteria.

      P&N - Were you aware that the "Related Hubs" feed embedded at the end of your post has a lot of pro-Mormon propaganda, along with other Hub posts that are at odds with your beliefs? If this is something you can "turn off" I would highly recommend it. No need to promote stuff like that - even if it's on the Hub platform.

      In Him

      Any minister who accepts wages from his employer is serving that employer - not God. Ministers have the least faith of all believers because they depend on a salary to make a living, instead of putting their faith in the God they claim to believe.

      Another of these new age churches is National Community church in Washington DC. The pastor Mark Batterson wrote a book on prayer Called The Circle Maker, based on a legend in the talmud that embraces concepts of witchcraft. His book is being taught in Churches all over as a new way to pray. I think these kind of churches that are practicing new age and have these large mega churches are being funded by the Illuminate. They will be the religious leaders in the NWO.

      Hi PlanksandNails, thanks for the link you provide and your answer. I understand your worries about these kind of religions - they're obviously misleading people, that's something you feel in your guts. It takes quite some effort to prove it. Now I understand what you are trying to do. Good job!

      I do not disagree with you that New Age practices have found their way into the lives of individual professing Christians. I believe that those leaders whom you describe in your hub are not true Christians, because they distort, twist, and misinterpret Scripture. They are not members of the Church.

      Pardon me if I do not understand your perspective, but I do find a bit disconcerting your tendency to label all local churches as following the practices and beliefs of these Pentecostal charlatans. Many local churches, faithful to historic Christianity, still remain.
