New Spirituality is Hot

New Spirituality is hot right now with Oprah featuring A Course in Miracles lessons on her satellite radio show as well as teaching Ekhart Tolle’s A New Earth on her web class. Then there’s Pope Benedict XVl in the country hosting yet another interfaith conference where he will continue the work of joining Roman Catholicism together with Islam and the rest of the world’s religions, based on “common ground”. We also have the Dalai Lama here with thousands going to him for spiritual enlightenment. Public schools are busing children in to hear him promote the “compassion movement”.

And then we have “from within Christianity”, Rob Bell at the Interspiritual Seeds of Compassion conference referring to the Dalai Lama as “His Holiness”, and redefining death and resurrection for a universalist-friendly crowd. He could have used this incredible opportunity to speak of the true God, sin, righteousness, judgment, the Deity and Lordship of Christ, the cross, the love and grace of God, repentance and faith, but he did not. He blended. Why? New Spirituality is hot! It is “New Paradigm” (even though it has really been around since Genesis). Faith in Jesus as the only way is “Old Paradigm”. The world seeks to evolve to the next level of consciousness: the idea that we are all “one”. The Shift; the global transformation, is rapidly coming to completion. This is the idea that we are all one because we are all god. This is the “Christ consciousness.”

So, are you ready to be different? (Are you different already?) Are you ready to not sign up with the one world religion? Are you ready to endure when you see people who call themselves “Christians” join also? Are you ready to be left out? Are you ready for the pressure to conform? Are you ready for what’s next? The world will bow to the enemy’s New Spirituality; the worship of self as god.

Therefore, take up the full armor of God, that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. Eph.6:13.

  1. Also check out the last video posted on A Little Leaven from the link above in the post. The comments by the Sikh leader represents the New Spirituality that was promoted at this conference.They also provide a link from their site to view the entire conference in context.

    Here also is a note from A Little Leaven about the videos:

    “Please watch the entire event video so that you can see these comments in their full context. You will find that this event taught that all religions have the same essence and a one world spirituality AND Rob Bell, by his presence and lack of saying anything that was distinctly Christian and because he didn’t even mention Jesus Christ and His crucifixion for the sins of the world (the gospel) appeared to be in agreement with the other speakers.”

    Loretta,

    Thank you for shining a spotlight on this. It’s troubling to consider the Oprah programs and the effect they may be having. Apparently many people feel that there are many paths to God. We need to pray that they’re not swept up by this false teaching and move instead towards the narrow gate.

  3. hi Joe, The enemy is working through people to establish a global religion of sorts in which enlightenment is the realization, not that there are many paths to God, for this New Spirituality rejects the true God, but that we are all one world, all one with the universe, all god. The NT is clear this ‘movement’ will only grow as we get closer to the return of Christ. Yes we can pray for all the brethren, for us all to stand firm, and for God to send out laborers in to the harvest to preach the gospel while there is still time. God will save His lost sheep (through hearing the gospel) and bring them through the narrow gate, our Lord and Savior Jesus.
