Is new age theology being introduced to your walk with God? You may think you know, but as deceptive as new age can be, you might not realize how much it could have already infiltrated your life. New age theology isn’t always only the terms and teachings popularized in our culture today, such as yoga, astral projection, remote viewing, and false prophecy. These are the more extreme teachings of new age, but there are far more subtle teachings that have the potential to be even more damaging. How are we to recognize these subtleties? Read more or, if you prefer, view the video below (don't forget to share and subscribe) to find out more. Introduction Years ago, I was involved in new age theology; heavily. I was always the type of person that liked to look at alternate explanations of things, and new age theology pandered to that perfectly for me. I bought into the hype. The strange thing was, at the time I was involved in these things, I was calling myself a Christian. I never would have identified myself as a “new ager” or “gnostic” or any of the other names sometimes attributed to the many, many paths of new age theology. At the time, I thought I knew the Bible pretty well. After all, I was born and raised in a Baptist environment. This, in my mind, granted me the permission to claim I pretty much knew the basics of everything in the Bible (even the parts I had not personally read). When I became interested in new age theology, I thought I had found the other end of Christianity: the completion of the Bible. I thought I had found answers that the Bible didn’t provide. Little did I know, though I should have, the Bible provided every answer I was looking for at the time. I would have known that had I bothered to open it up myself. Instead, I found myself believing astral projection and remote viewing were good and beneficial practices; a way for my consciousness to enter heavenly realms whenever I wanted. I believed people like Edgar Cayce were literal prophets of God, even though they never preached repentance, salvation only through Jesus Christ, or 100% accurate prophecy. I was believing I was talking with angels and spirit guides, even though they played to my ego by being way more interested in me than the Lord Jesus Christ, His divinity, and His gift of eternal salvation. Through a series of very strange events, God showed me the deception of new age. Once the enemy was exposed, they didn’t come across as nice angels or caring spirit guides anymore. No, they were hideous demonic entities only interested in destroying me and my family. The truth was out. It was only the power and authority in the name of Jesus Christ, the true Son of God, that banished these entities and closed all the spiritual doors I had inadvertently opened by way of my previous new age practices. This was when God led me to a community of Christians who knew how to read the Bible, preach truth, expose lies, discern reality, and teach the true gospel of Jesus Christ. Through God, the Bible, and this community, I was (and still am) able to find all the answers I was looking for when I first got into new age theology. I began seeing real manifestations of truth, instead of the deceptions the enemy was providing earlier. I rededicated my life to Christ (which I consider to be my true salvation experience) and began working with what God gave me. I started to research and study as much as possible, then began writing my own books and producing a podcast. I have been doing this a few years now. One thing I realize is much of the Church is still ignorant to what new age theology teaches. This isn’t a criticism exactly; after all, new age theology is spiritually damaging and should be avoided at all costs. The problem is, however, sometimes new age theology is packaged as Christian doctrine and Christians may or may not always know the difference. Because of this, sometimes new age teachings are introduced to believers unknowingly and, unfortunately, these teachings spread like a cancer; or perhaps more accurately, like leaven in bread. Therefore, the purpose of this post is to provide you, the reader, with a few of the teachings and buzz words, to know what to stay away from. This is not exhaustive; there is much, much more out there than what is just presented here. However, it is my hope this will provoke you, if you hear any of these things being taught, to research things out before believing them at face value. Also, I would ask that if you do hear someone claiming to be a Christian and preaching these things, pray for that person in all love and humility. A person like that would be under heavy spiritual attack and deception. Instead of viewing that type of person as an enemy, think of them as a prisoner of war who needs our help. Remember, we wrestle not against flesh and blood. The 13th Dimension and Anti-Semitism One thing about new age theology is there isn’t a previously established and accepted “truth” that everything else is measured against. There is no “new age bible” that every new ager believes in whole-heartedly. New age is a theology that accepts basically anything and everything, so long as it’s not Christianity, of course. But Buddhism, Zoroastrianism, Gnosticism, Hinduism, and any number of others fit in perfectly to new age. Because of this, it is hard to say “all new agers believe” or even “new age teaches” because some factions may while other may not. New age really differs slightly from individual to individual. It is an all-you-can-eat belief; everything is included. This is part of what makes it so deceptive. It is easy to include elements of Christianity and the Bible into new age teaching, then call the whole thing Christian. One teaching within new age theology is that of the 13th dimension. Usually, when new agers talk about “dimensions”, they do not mean the physical or temporal dimensions quantum physics talk about (though, at times, this is incorporated). They are usually speaking of stages of spiritual ascension. For example, consider this excerpt from “A NEW ORDER OF THE AGES: A Metaphysical Blueprint of Reality and an Exposé on Powerful Reptilian/Aryan Bloodlines (Vol. 2)” (Aug 1, 2011) by Collin Robert Bowling. On page 319: “The Universal Consciousness (Prime Creator) projects itself from the 13th dimension (infinite possibilities, the Void) down a straight line through the 5th dimension (pure love) and splays it out in a four-dimensional creation we all call the physical manifest world. We are all simply tiny aspects of the Universal Consciousness projecting ourselves into the world and interacting with it.” The idea here is that there is a piece of their god in all of us. This stems from Gnosticism, which teaches there is a piece of the Light in all of us (which transcends even YHWH, who in Gnosticism is an ignorant being who was created essentially by mistake) and when we come to that realization, we are eternally saved. This is a clear deception and heresy.  Also, just as a side-note, notice what it says on the very same page of the aforementioned book: “The Jewish people seem to have had a hard time throughout history, and you might now be wondering who the Jews really are. The globalist Zionists (the Learned Elders of Zion), the House of David and the members of the Druidic Council are not Jews. They have commandeered that race creed and use it as a front for power and greed. Think all Jewish people are greedy and they hoard power? No, the Zionists and Druids are greedy and they hoard power…The truth is that the overwhelmingly majority of Jewish people, and certainly those that control Israel, have no historical connection to this area, are not genetically Jewish and are not Semites. The globalists who control Israel are working for the House of David and the Illuminati.” This speaks to the level of deception promoted in books such as these and the extreme level of spiritual discernment needed in navigating them. Satan has always been about the destruction of the Jewish people and anti-Semitism. It is my belief one of the more recent tactics to discredit the people of Israel is this idea that “the Jews in Israel aren’t the real Jews”. Unfortunately, this is something that has been promulgated throughout the Church as well. Chakras, Light, and Universal Connectivity Sometimes connected with the idea of dimensions is the teaching of Chakras. In most new age belief systems, Chakras are taught as types of energy power centers that run up your spine. Usually it is taught there are seven of these (though sometimes is taught there are fifteen or more). The idea is, during meditation, to concentrate on opening each chakra, from the base of your spine to the crown of your head, each time keeping the previous in mind. Once you open the seventh and keep the remaining six open, you are supposed to experience inner peace and a type of nirvana-connection to the universe. This is also sometimes taught in yoga classes. Chakras are an important belief in most new age theology. Along with this, it is also sometimes taught that we are beings of light. Again, this is not talking about the light of God of the Bible or even light from the scientific perspective. From the Bible, it is true that God said “Let there be light”. Yet, this is not when human beings were created. Scientifically speaking, light is made up of individual and indivisible packet called “photons”. Photons are massless and fundamental particles. Human beings, on a quantum level, are made up of atoms, which include electrons, protons, neutrons, quarks, gluons, and forces. Simply speaking, we are not made of only light; not from a biblical nor a scientific perspective. But, in bringing this up, notice how easy it is for someone to control the conversation if they know the right words to say. “But, God is light, God created light, and God created you, so you are the light and love of God.” See how easy it is to make these things sound Christian? In truth, the Bible makes a clear distinction between God, creation, and humans. We humans are put in charge of the world, to take care of it. God created the world and the universe, but they are still distinctly separate things from God. God is not the universe. He is not the world. We humans are not God. God is God. We are human beings. The world is the world and the universe is the universe. There is a connection in that God created all of it, but nowhere in the Bible are we asked to actively attempt to tap into that connection. We are, however, asked to have a personal relationship with God, in which the only mediator is Jesus Christ. Not the universe. Not the world. Not each other. Just Jesus. The Third Eye and/or Pineal Gland Attempted activation of the third eye,or pineal gland, is a common practicein most new age theology. The idea of the third eye in connection to the pineal gland of the brain is popular among much new age teaching. The way it is often presented to Christians is by saying it is the pineal gland that is activated during prayer. Something also sometimes said is that there is a worldwide conspiracy to calcify the pineal gland, usually by fluoridated water, thereby preventing us from being able to pray effectively. Think of where this leads. This teaching essentially states if you aren’t getting your prayers answered or if you feel God is far from you, it is not because of a possible sin in your life or something you need to repent of; it is due to forces outside of your control, so you might as well accept it or find a way around it. The way around it they suggest is usually meditation, opening chakras, and opening yourself to the universal connection we all share. Of course, the biblical solution is much simpler and completely different. Repent and pray without ceasing. Jesus in the Flesh Jesus most assuredly came in the flesh. This is a big one and, within new age teaching, is usually saved for last because it is a direct attack on a very important tenant of Christian belief. If a person leads with this, chances are they will lose half the audience immediately. However, if a person works to this gradually, they have a higher chance at convincing the majority. There are many ways this is presented, but the basic premise is to deny the flesh aspect of Jesus Christ. Usually people teaching this will say something along the lines of “the pregnancy of Mary was an implantation and not a conception”. They will deny that Mary, from a biological level, had any part in the conception of Jesus. Simply speaking, Mary didn’t provide the egg. They will say that an already-conceived organism, such as a zygote or a fetus, was implanted into Mary. The problem with this is it completely denies Jesus Christ came in the flesh, because it denies the entire flesh aspect of His conception. 1 John 1-3 states: 1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. 2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: 3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. Conclusion As stated earlier, this is far from an exhaustive study into new age influences in the Christian church. However, if this is all new to you, this can be used as a springboard for further study. Most importantly, we should be operating in spiritual discernment. If something someone says doesn’t feel quite right, we should look into it and see where these teachings come from. If we hear someone claiming to be a Christian and teaching these types of thing, we should expose the heresy, yes, but we should also pray for that person in love and humility. Pray that God will open that person’s heart to the truth, see the deception he or she is under, repent, and come back into the fold to be a powerful warrior for Christ rather than Satan. Remember, as Ephesians 6 teaches us, we wrestle not against flesh and blood. Our enemy is a spiritual one. Let us not fall into the ways of the enemy, based in fear, hatred, and anger. Instead, let us follow God in love, humility, respect, and a humble spirit. Thank you for reading, take care, and God bless!

                                                      Chicken dinner recipe Here is a great recipe for perfectly seasoned chicken! Take boneless chicken and thaw it Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and while you wait make the seasoning for the chicken In a bowl mix 3 TBS of pepper 2 TBS of seasoned salt ½ tsp of lemon pepper ½ tsp of kosher salt some parsley flakes and a pinch of Cumin Mix the seasoning together place the chicken on your baking sheet and season the chicken lightly with the mix. Place in the oven and in fifteen minutes flip the chicken and season the bottom. Leave the chicken bottom side up and in another fifteen minutes flip the chicken again and add a little lemon juice to the top of each piece of chicken and fifteen minutes later check to see if the chicken is fully cooked. Temperature should be around 175 degrees internally. If you don't own a cooking thermometer, cut down the middle of a piece of chicken. There should be no pink visible. Depending on the size of your chicken it may need an extra fifteen minutes to cook. In the picture above it only took 45 minutes to fully cook.  Why flip the chicken every fifteen minutes you ask? I find that the chicken comes out juicier and evenly seasoned if I flip it. But that's just my preference If you prefer to preseason the chicken and let it be then that's fine too. After the Chicken is at 175 internally,turn the temperature down to 200 degrees, pull the chicken out of the oven and add the desired veggies to the baking sheet. (in this picture I added a can of mixed veggies) Season the veggies with that same seasoning and put the sheet back in for another 5-10 minutes. Just enough time to warm them up. Pull the baking sheet out and ENJOY! That's it for this recipe I hope you enjoyed it!
