Just a reminder that we need to stay on topic here regarding New Age deception.

Thanks.

If you mean the potential to do evil....Yes!

If we keep God to His simple terms, understanding would also be simple.

Blessings, AJ

New Age is broad and upcoming from a number of fronts, even within the emerging church of Christianity. Look up everything on your own and come to your own conclusion.


YouTube - Know Your Enemy (Part 74 - The Emerging Church - Christianity + Post Modernism)

Do you have any thoughts of your own or any capability to think through and reason the basis for the whackadoo ideas you so zealously present. Your reasoning and rationale for why this absurd stuff seems real to you would be far more informative to the forum and would provide a real basis to engage you on the issues in a real discussion. Your You Tube videos are just annoying propaganda. Who is behind this New Age deception and conspiracy YOU see and why? What is New Age anyway?

Like I've said before. Take what I say here and do further research.

You don't say anything here . . . you are spamming the forum with your propaganda You Tube videos from your whackadoo mentors. Are you even capable of independent thought and discussion?

These are core issues in Christianity. The emerging church has a number of church "leaders" sending the flock in the wrong direction. These videos help present the issue.

Take this as one source and do your own research.

I believe in "New Age" as defined by being open to any spiritual, scientific & metaphysical truths that embraces elements from religions, including Christianity.
I don't believe in New Age as defined by horoscope based "Age of Aquarius" or any other beliefs that give one's power away.

Lee,
You accused the Vatican of encouraging the worshiping of Mary & saints. Do you realize, that Jesus discouraged people from worshiping him, (Matt 19:16-17) acknowleding only God is that "good Master" - yet people continue worshiping Jesus? Many also search for the kingdom of God externally... when he specifically explained how "the kingdom of God cometh not with observation... the kingdom of God is within you." (Luke 17:20-21).

God created us all to learn & much learning comes from making mistakes, because of deception. Both those who believe in traditional Christianity & those who believe in Mystical Christianity consist of imperfect (or deceived) people. Yet, (IMO) Christianity was originally intended to be internalized, not just institutionalized. "Narrow is the way... & few there be that find it" (Matt 7:14) because it is personal & individual. Organized religion may offer some spiritual help, but nobody can tell you how to feel spiritual feelings, or heal internally. Likewise, nobody can deceive you without your permission. Sin is incorrect thinking, based on deception - & aren't we all sinners?

Can you explain what you mean? How do you "give permission" to somebody to deceive you?
