Are you a new ager?
This may seem like an inconsequential question, even a silly question to ask, but many people may not know how involved they are in the new age movement that has permeated our society.
In other words, do you believe or practice what is taught in the new age movement without knowing it?
Here are some questions to ask yourself…
Do you believe God is a force? That God is in all things (panentheism) or that God is all things (pantheism) .
Do you believe in karma and reincarnation as Hindus or Buddhists do?
Do you believe life is an illusion (not real) and the real world is unseen?
Do you believe that all religions and spiritual paths lead to the same place and are acceptable to God? (universalism)
Do you deny a moral standard for all people that is understood by our conscience or the law given to Moses?
Do you believe that all holy books are given by God at different times?
Do you believe that all religions and spiritual beliefs are based on or point to the same God who is known by different names?
Do you think Jesus was an enlightened master like many others? That he discovered God by realization of what is inside him.
Do you believe God is a force or is a he or a she?
Do you believe we can leave our bodies and visit other realms through psych spiritual techniques or dreams?
Do you believe that we can come in touch with God through Yoga or meditation.?
Do you believe that man can pass onto you by touch a spirit or gift?
Do you believe that ghosts are people that once lived and are trying to communicate with us?
Do you believe space aliens are visiting to give us knowledge for the advancement of human kind?
Do you believe that spirit beings from other dimensions are desiring to channel to us information?
If you believe any of these you are involved to some degree, willingly or unwillingly.
If you believe any of these as a Christian, then you are accepting beliefs and practices that go against the faith that is to be focused on Jesus Christ. Paul writes for us to test to see if we are in the faith Any one of these beliefs can remove you from the gospel ( Cor.15:1-4)
