“New Age” can loosely be defined as “spirituality without fear, consequences or critical examination”.
Human beings broadly desire communion with the intransient (to interact with spirits). Many would consider this common, innate desire proof that inter-dimensional agencies (“angels”, “demons” and God) exist. “Why do so many people in so many places all want to interact with spirits? Our souls must drive us to it.”
Christians do have an answer to this question: that we have been created by God with a hole in our souls and hearts that only Jesus Christ can fill.
Acts 17: 22-34 (King James 3, Literal)
Addressing the Areopagus
[Both a rock formation outside Athens and governmental body.]
22 And standing in the midst of the Areopagus, Paul said, “Men, Athenians, I see how you in everything are gods-fearing ones;”
23 “for passing through and looking up at the objects of your worship, I also found an altar on which had been written,”
“TO AN UNKNOWN GOD.”
“Therefore, not knowing Him whom you worship, I proclaim this One to you.”
24 “God, the One who made the world and all things in it, this One being Lord of Heaven and of Earth, does not dwell in temples made by hand,”
25 “nor is served by hands of men, as having need of anything. For He is giving life and breath and all things to all.”
26 “And He made every nation of men of one blood, to live on all the face of the Earth, having determined fore-appointed seasons and boundaries of their dwelling,”
27 “to seek the Lord, if perhaps they might feel after Him and might find Him, though indeed He not being far from each one of us.”
28 “For in Him we live and move and exist, as also some of the poets among you have said,”
“‘For we are also His offspring.’”
29 “Therefore being offspring of God, we ought not to suppose that the Deity is like gold or silver or stone, engraved by art and the imagination of man.”
30 “Indeed, therefore, God overlooking the times of ignorance, now strictly commands all men everywhere to repent,”
31 “because He set a day in which ‘He is going to judge the inhabited Earth in righteousness,’ by a Man whom He appointed; having offered faith to all, having raised Him up from the dead.” [Psa. 9:8]
32 “And hearing of a resurrection of the dead, the ones indeed ridiculed, but said, ‘We will hear you again concerning this.’”
33 “And so Paul went out from their midst.”
34 “But some men believed, joining themselves to him, among whom also were both Dionysius the Areopagite and a woman named Damaris, and others with them.”
The trap of “New Age” is the idea that there is no such thing as a negative spiritual experience. It is like inviting a toddler to swim in a swamp filled with alligators.
There are many stories of bad experiences where victims were duped or tricked by something they thought they knew or they thought was friendly towards them; a dead loved one, perhaps — something that knew their personal details to gain their confidence.
This is why their god is the great voyeur with a single “all-seeing” eye.
None other than Pierre Teilhard de Chardin is considered the “father of the New Age”.
What is particularly disturbing about all of this is that the Club of Rome is being spiritually driven-spiritually as in occultism. On pages 151 and 152 of Mankind at the Turning Point, Aurelio Peccei reveals his pantheistic/New Age beliefs, talking about man’s communion with nature and the transcendent and using the term “noosphere” in referring to the collective field of intelligence of the human race. This uncommon expression cannot be found in a dictionary. By use of the term “noosphere” Peccei gives himself away as a student of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, a French Jesuit priest (now deceased) whose occult ideas and writings, I would later discover, have had a deep impact on the New Age movement. In fact, Chardin is one of the most frequently quoted writers by leading New Age occultists. ~ Gary Kah1
Promoted lovingly as “Teilhard”, de Chardin was exceptionally dangerous, encouraging non-Christians that all will “ascend to the Omega Point” regardless of their path and none need to fear making decisions that will lead them to eternal damnation.
Pierre de Chardin has a long history of malignant and Satanic deception in Jesuit warfare against Christ and the Bible. When critics of Darwinian evolution began to question the “fossil evidence” for “mutating from ape into man”, de Chardin utilized Jesuit relic aging techniques [notice how this article from the appropriately-named “Vice” calls this practice “Christian”] to create a phony “Missing Link” known as “Piltdown Man”.
Malignant minions of Satan like Jesuit Pierre Teilhard de Chardin are the one inviting foolish experimenters to take LSD and ayahuasca to close their eyes and enter the “Age of Aquarius”.
But what they all eventually find is broken dreams at best, damnation and ruin at worst.
