What Is The Problem With Many Descriptions Of The New Age Movement?

 

The Problem With Many Descriptions of the New Age Movement

One word of caution:

Even good Christians 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," "the world is destroyed in the end," and many others. Others 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 to demonize another denomination. All of this, of course, is simply Christian immaturity of the most destructive sort.

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.

What is a cult?
The only sure way to avoid being deceived.
