Christian Versus the New Age

 

Christian New Age
God is not a force but is rather a Spirit.

John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

 

An impersonal god (force).

God is not a supreme Being distinct from creation-He is creation.

God created the universal in a literal six day.

Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
 

An eternal universe
We were created in the image of God. We are different from all other creatures that were created.

Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image

see The necessity of reincarnations below

A cyclical nature of life

A pagan world view that all life is related, interconnected and interdependent. This view typically assumes evolution and reincarnation as the driving force behind the cycle of existence -life, death and rebirth.

 

Men only die once and are not reincarnated.

Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

 

The necessity of reincarnations
Man is not god and never will be.

Mark 12:32 And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he:


Isaiah 45:5 I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:

Romans 3:30,  Mark 12:32 Mark 12:29, 1Timothy 2:5,  1Corinthians 8:4,  Galatians 3:20,  James 2:19,  Psalms 86:10 Deuteronomy 6:4,  Isaiah 44:8,  Isaiah 45:5,  Isaiah 45:18,  Isaiah 45:21, Isaiah 45:22 Isaiah 46:9,  Malachi 2:10

 

The evolution of man into Godhood

Each person is god and needs only to have his consciousness enlightened so he will realize it

The identity of man with God

 

These "other" beings are nothing more then the fallen angles, Satan and his minions. 

Deuteronomy 18:10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, (11) Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. (12) For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.
 

Continuing revelations from beings beyond the world

 

God forbids us to entertain the demons of this world. Those that do are in danger of Hell.

Deuteronomy 18:10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, (11) Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. (12) For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

Leviticus 20:6 And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people.

 

Occult practices (astrology, mediums, etc.)

The need for meditation (or other consciousness-changing techniques)

A step up the occult ladder from mediums, channels claim their bodies are taken over by 'entities' or spirits from another dimension.

After the flood, God gave man his permission to eat meat, but we are not to drink the blood.

Genesis 9:3 Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things. (4) But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.
 

Vegetarianism and holistic health
God laughs at the people who thinks that they will rule the earth.

Psalms 2:1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? (2) The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, (3) Let us break their (bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. (4) He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.
 

One world (global) order, where all of man kind can come together and be as one
All religions are equal (except Christianity), Only through Jesus and his name can a person be saved.

John 20:31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.

 

Syncretism (unity of all religions)
"In the beginning God created" (Genesis. 1:1). Because they confuse God with creation, the New Agers see God as part of creation-not separate from it. Biblical Christianity clearly distinguishes between God and creation. All is One; All is God; Humanity is God.
