My name is Martina and I come from the Czech Republic, small country in the Central Europe. I’m a newborn Christian, for years I was involved in New Age teachings, meditation etc. until I was called by Jesus to read the Bible. New Age is actually a vast smorgasbord of beliefs and practices. Each New Ager fills his tray with whatever assortment fits his appetite. All is liberally seasoned with self-centeredness. It’s really a Have-It-Your-Way religion – thus its modern appeal.
the typical New Ager believes:
God is in everything (pantheism) All things are one Man is God Mind creates reality One’s own experience validates the truth
New Agers are Universalists, believing that all paths lead to God. They fault Christians for being intolerant and narrow-minded. Yep - I sure did…mind you withour ever reading the Bible… But God’s word anticipates this: “Enter the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the path that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” (Matthew 7:13)
New Agers are in a lot of confusion. That’s because they haven’t found the Truth, but only what fits into the spiritual perspective they have constructed. As in the Garden of Eden, the lie has never changed.
I’m studying Bible nowadays, halfway through:) and I’m looking forward to be in this group:)
