What is a cult?

 

Although New Agers are not currently using the term, New Age, as much as they used to, New Age is still a network encompassing all religions except Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. They have desired to include Islam and have made great strides toward including violent Islam in the New Age networking group. New Age does not have the same meaning as the term, "liberalism," but all New Age religions tend to have the same basis as liberalism has.

We may be using the word, "New Age," more inclusively than some other sources use the term. There are differing opinions on the subject of New Age and even on what New Age is. New Agers use the phrase, "unity in diversity." This explains why such diverse New Age religions can work together for a common goal. The New Age white supremacists can work together with New Age Ecological-terrorists, or why there is such a close relationship between homosexual and pro-abortion advocacy groups. The New Age Atheists and Naturalists can work together with the New Age Spiritists.

Also, when we say that New Age is a network, we mean it in the most nondescript form of the word. In fact, the only organizer of the New Age religion may be Satan himself. The various New Age denominations seem to be pretty independent from each other in many cases, yet, they are capable of working together toward a goal when they desire to do so. New Age organizations may be at odds with each other on most issues yet still work together on those purposes on which they agree. Part of the New Age Movement denies the existence of evil spirits and another part of the New Age Movement worships evil spirits. Part of the New Age Movement denies the existence of God and the validity of the Bible, while another part attempts to counterfeit elements of the Biblical Christianity by the power and trickery of humanity or even evil spirits. Thus the New Age mantra: Unity in Diversity.

Included in the New Age Movement are the following faith groups:

  • Secular Humanists
  • Agnostics
  • Atheists
  • Anarchists
  • Intellectualism (the worship of the human mind)
  • The Nazi Party and white supremacists
  • Hindu
  • Buddhist
  • Many other Eastern religions
  • Satanism
  • Many other occult religions
  • New Age Centers, such as Jim Jones's New Age Center
  • Many churches that call themselves Christian that are, in fact, New Age and not in any way Christian.

It must also be known that at every opportunity, New Agers are seeking to introduce their doctrines and have been successful in introducing them into many Christian churches, thus causing confusion. A Christian group may have a very good understanding in one portion of the revelation of the gospel and be totally out of touch with God's truth in another part of the gospel. Everything that is not according to the pattern that can be found in Scripture is something that God is eager to cleanse from the Church. All New Age teaching is potentially dangerous in that it is counterfeit. For every gift that God gives, Satan has at least one and usually many clever counterfeits. The counterfeits make the real no less real, however.

Much of New Age religion is a counterfeit of Christian teaching. There are only two sources for counterfeits of God's Church: humanity and evil spirits. Every gift that God has given can be and is counterfeited by these two sources. That does not make the real any less real, but it does call for discernment on the part of Christians.

Some of the gifts that are counterfeited by these two sources:

  • Salvation
  • The moving of the Holy Spirit
  • The Church government and Church order
  • The gifts of the Spirit
  • Apostles
  • Faith
  • Prophets
  • Hope
  • Evangelists
  • Pastors
  • Teachers
  • Healing
  • Miracles
  • Love
  • Speaking in tongues
  • Church services
  • Works
  • Grace

And the list could go on, but you get the idea. Everything can be and is counterfeited by these two sources. There is that which is real in all cases. The fact that the enemy is eager to infiltrate and counterfeit is only proof of the power of the real and the necessity of every portion of what God has given to bring about the fullness or what God intends to do.

Below is a quote by Constance Cumbey. Her research has shown that the New Age movement is a huge network that cooperates (and sometimes does not cooperate that well) to reach various goals. New Age liberals are able to unite, perhaps more easily than Christians, and to be very effective in pushing their agenda despite the diversity and lack of hierarchy. This is just the way that Constance Cumbey states it, although Constance does make it seem as though anyone who is not a Baptist is New Age. A careful reader can get a lot out of this book in spite of that fact.

 


 

"It is the contention of this writer that for the first time in history there is a visible movement - The New Age Movement - that truly meets all the scriptural requirements for the antichrist and the political movement that will bring him on the world scene"
Constance Cumbey, THE HIDDEN DANGERS OF THE RAINBOW

 



"Today's world confronts a strange and growing paradox that could well mark a pivotal point in human history. Even as the scientific and technological advancement which has ushered in the space age is accelerating at an exponential rate, we are witnessing far and away the greatest occult explosion of all time."
Dave Hunt, AMERICA: THE SORCERER'S NEW APPRENTICE

 

 



"The New Age Movement is the fastest growing, most significant challenge to the Church today. It looms larger than Secular Humanism because it provides something that Humanism lacks: while retaining Humanism's insistence that man in the measure of all things, it also awakens and nurtures a fundamental religious impulse. It is widespread, worldwide, powerful, seductively alluring and openly LUCERIFIC."
Joseph Carr, THE LUCIFER CONNECTION

 

 



"The New Age is the last age. It will culminate in th emergence of an astonishingly powerful World Teacher, the New Age false "Messiah" who will be worshiped by all the world as a supernatural God of Forces. This man of sin, the Beast with the number 666, will cause every man, woman and child alive to take a Mark, either on the forehead or the right hand."
Texe Marrs, MYSTERY MARK OF THE NEW AGE

 

 


 

Today, the New Age movement appears to be a loose knit group of innocent organizations with ambiguous goals or leadership. But beneath the surface there is a definite, organized, secret leadership and strategy which guides the vast movement. The main body of leadership resides in an organization called "The Planetary Initiative For The World We Choose."

One of their most celebrated demonstrations of unity and public relations occurred on August 16-17, 1988. Over eighty million New Agers unified themselves for what was called the largest assembly of mass meditation in history. Widely reported by the news media, the "Harmonic Convergence," also referred to as the "Planetary Surrender," occurred simultaneously in nearly every nation and major city. Led and organized largely by 144,000 Shamans, witches, witch doctors and a whole assortment of New Age mystics, they joined in a period of meditation agreement for the release of "spiritual forces" which would bring about their desire for a "one world government and world religion." Only two years earlier, on December 31, 1986, a slightly smaller gathering of fifty million New Age adherents joined in meditation for the purpose to "alter the manner which humanity understands reality."

In actuality, these gatherings of meditation were acts of worship and service to the Devil. One can only imagine what kind of demons and evil spiritual forces were unleashed upon the world as witch doctors, shamans and mystics called upon the powers of darkness to distort humanity's perception of truth.
Is it no wonder that evil and wickedness has intensified in the world since that time? Think of the power of God that could be released if eighty million Christians combined their faith in one massive prayer meeting!
Dr. Dale A. Robbins

 


 

One word of caution:

Even good Christians, some of whom may be quoted on this web page, have gone a bit over the edge when talking about the New Age movement. If you read enough on the subject you will find many who condemn, as "New Age," everyone who does not believe their own highly speculative doctrines. This kind of wildness does definitely cause confusion on the subject, and it really does divide the Body of Christ. You will see some people and even whole denominations condemning, as "New Age," anyone who doesn't buy into such doctrines as "eternal security," "rapture," certain speculative end time theologies, and many other human ideas that are really Scripture augmented by rationalized and spiritualized speculations.

Some Christians will condemn, as "New Age," anyone who believes what the Bible teaches about being filled with the Spirit, what the Bibles says about the order of the Church: elders, deacons, apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, teachers. Some will condemn those who believe in prophecy. Some condemn those who don't believe that the natural mind can understand the Bible but rather that the Holy Spirit reveals the meaning of Scripture. Some condemn those who believe what the Bible says regarding the life, holiness, or healing that is available through Christ Jesus. Some condemn those who believe what the Bible says regarding Spiritual gifts. Often one denomination uses the "New Age" label (it actually might be any label) to strike out at another denomination in some sort of a sick competitive spirit. All of this, of course, is simply Christian immaturity of the most destructive sort, and most of the Christians described in this paragraph have, to some degree, bought into the liberal axioms of materialism and Naturalism. They have a form of religion but deny the power thereof.

Christians must be careful in their accusations. Often, you will hear one Christian or group of Christians stating what another Christian or group of Christians believe, and, when you check it out, you find out that the whole thing was a misrepresentation with just enough truth to make it sound credible. Let's leave the mud-slinging and worldly conduct to the liberals and the worldly. If we bring the world into the Church by such finger-pointing and foolishness, then where will anyone go to be built up to the fullness of Christ.
