My own introduction to the New Age concept of spiritual oneness came as a child when I heard “Imagine” on the radio. Even as a child growing up in the Roman Catholic Church, I understood that the song was about all the people of the world coming together as one spiritually. I understood the song’s purpose was to destroy the truth of Christianity.
In my youthful college days, I was extremely naive. I was already well versed in Humanism, the prevailing secular wisdom. This was to be expected from public institutions. Foolishly thinking I could continue my education in Liberal Studies at San Francisco State, I knew there was more Humanism to come. I would take it, as always with a grain of salt. But I was hoping the curriculum would consist of content such as “Invitation To the Classics”. It turned out to be more like, “Invitation to the Occult”.
The main textbook for the core class was Marilyn Ferguson’s The Aquarian Conspiracy, which was basically a primer for the outing and mainstreaming of the New Age occultic religion into modern society. The total required reading list of luciferian primers was more than I could stomach as a young Christian. A watershed moment in my college career was the day the class listened as the instructor taught us the concept of ‘paradigm shift’ and declared, “The goal is to destroy the old paradigm and replace it with the new paradigm” (as described in Furgeson’s book). As we look around us now, we see they are very successful in achieving their plan.
But that is the world, and we know the god of this world is working hard to institute the global religion of antichrist, which is essentially the global worship of himself, the enemy of God. The thing that is happening now, is that we have professing Christians, supposed Christian organizations, and church leaders who are promoting this one world religion. The enemy is working overtime to get professing Christianity into the mix.
I got a copy of the Spring 2005 SoulMag in the mail. It was a new magazine for Christians, and it was about “entertainment, lifestyle and faith”. Every single article was blasphemous diaprax to transform an undiscerning Christian to accept new age beliefs, for the goal of joining Christians to the global religion via “common ground”. Who was producing this magazine? Professing Christians. The content of the articles was undeniably luciferian (new age or anti-biblical).
Then, around the same time, I got a postcard in the mail, inviting me to sign the ONE declaration, and join a good social cause, along with other “people of faith”. It had a picture of several Christian and political leaders, and of course Bono. The card promoted this as a public-private partnership to do social work. What jumped out at me, was this bible verse printed on the card: “There is one body and one spirit (small s), just as also you were called in one hope of your calling.” Eph. 4:4. That is exactly how it was phrased on the postcard. They were using a bible verse to appeal to Christians, but what they were really saying was that the ‘one body’ is the whole world (misusing this text). This is so because they made it clear that this was a joint effort of secular organizations and an interfaith cooperation of all ‘people of faith’.
Another interesting experience was when I looked at the church bulletin and I noticed that they were inviting the people in the church to participate in building a house with Habitat for Humanity. Habitat claims to be a Christian organization. For a long time church groups would sign up to work on a house together. It would be a time of fellowship and serving alongside one another in an act of Christian love and service. But this project was different. This was no ordinary Habitat project. This was the new “All Faiths” house build project. This interfaith project would bring Christians, Muslims, Jews and Hindus together to build common ground and interfaith unity. These interfaith projects would include a worship service where all faiths participate, and all are recognized.
So I gave a call to my local chapter of Habitat, and asked about this interfaith project, and how it would help bring people from all religions together in unity. The man on the phone happily affirmed this, and with excitement in his voice, said, “Yes, it’s already happening!”
