New Age Deceptions
There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. Proverbs 14:12
The New Age Movement seems so right to its disciples, but its end is death eternal
Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils. 1 Timothy 4:1
What is the New Age Movement or, Cosmic Humanism or environmentalism?
COSMIC HUMANISM IS A WORLDVIEW
Cosmic Humanism (New Age) exhibits a position in all ten areas of a worldview:
Theology, Philosophy, Ethics, Biology, Psychology, Sociology, Law, Politics, Economics, History.
THEOLOGY: Pantheism is the theology of Cosmic Humanism. Pantheism is the religious belief that everything is divine. All is God (Monism). New Age religious “sacraments” include: Channelling, hypnosis, meditation, hallucinogenic drugs and even Ouija boards to enable altered states of consciousness.
PHILOSOPHY OF COSMIC HUMANISM
PHILOSOPHY: Non-Naturalism is the philosophy of Cosmic Humanism. Since everything is God, then everything in ess-ence is spiritual. Matter is spiritual and can be controlled by a mind in touch with the “god within”. Health and wealth can be created by the mind, which some call the Christ-Spirit that lives in all people.
ETHICS OF COSMIC HUMANISM
ETHICS: Relativism is the ethical system of Cosmic Humanism. As gods, we need only to get in touch with our universal god-consciousness to act morally. With relativism any mindset or action is justi- fiable. A moral absolute would stunt a persons ethical progress.
BIOLOGY OF COSMIC HUMANISM
BIOLOGY (Science): Darwinian or Punctuated Equilibrium Evolution is the science of New Age. Evolution is central to New Age belief because it ensures progression to godhood. Mankind is evol- ing from disharmony to harmony, from the material to the holistic spiritual.
Homo noeticus or Homo universalis
PSYCHOLOGY OF COSMIC HUMANISM
PSYCHOLOGY: Collective Conscious-ness is the Psychology of New Age think- ing. Our environment stifles knowledge of the god within. Psychology should cause people to realize their inherent perfection, divine intuition. The true self will create unity, harmony, community and peace, never dis-unity or stress.
SOCIOLOGY OF COSMIC HUMANISM
SOCIOLOGY: Non-Traditional Home, Church and State is the Sociology of the New Age. Societal evil is caused by tradi- tional western civilization: Technology, male-dominant norms (ie. Trad. family), free-enterprise system, central Gov., and dogmatic monotheistic religions. Tradi- tional values and mores are obsolete.
“LAW” OF COSMIC HUMANISM
LAW: Self-law is the Cosmic Humanist concept of law. God-consciousness dispels the need for laws. Each person decides what is lawfull. Unenlightened people who believe man is inherently evil require laws, but once this outdated idea is exposed as a lie, the world will function in complete harmony.
POLITICS OF COSMIC HUMANISM
POLITICS: New Age Order is the political focus of Cosmic Humanists. The need for Government exists to control people who do not get in touch with their divine self. The New World Order will ensure spiritual unity. All people will have a transformation into enlightenment and oneness,the basis of true spirituality.
ECONOMICS OF COSMIC HUMANISM
ECONOMICS: Universal Enlightened Production is New Age Economics. Trad- itional economic forms emphasize only the material and are thus a hindrance to enlightenment. New Agers create their own reality through visualization. If you are in harmony with the spiritual realm, material gain automatically flows to you.
HISTORY OF COSMIC HUMANISM
HISTORY: Evolutionary Godhood is the system of history of the New Age. Evolu- tion is progressively moving mankind toward god-consciousness and unified enlightenment. Biblical Christians are the greatest hindrance to the continual forces of evolution of mankind into godhood as Christians hold to absolute Truth.
NAM = New Age Movement
The NAM intends to establish a one world political, economic, spiritual system by the year 2000 a.d.
A “New World Order?”
Does the Bible teach that some form of a “Last Days” global political, spiritual, economic New World Order will arise?
A Global Spiritual System
And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
A Global Political System
And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, and His tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. Revelation 13:6,7
A Global Economic System
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Revelation 13:16,17
The Last Days Are Characterized by Deception!!!
For such are false apostles,deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works. 2 Corinthians 11:13-15
