know that since the beginning of time most every religion or
cult (except for Christianity) in the whole world has believed
one of the first lies that has been told by Satan?
told a lie that gave a false promise. It is very important to
understand what Satan actually told Eve that convinced her to
rebel against God so you will not fall for this same old lie. Satan told Eve that
she could be as a god. Eve believed and delighted in this false statement
made by the serpent.
The New Age
Movement Teaches False Doctrine (truths)
To believe that you as a human being are a god
is blasphemy. We are created by God and we our His
creation. There is only One who is the creator and that rules
and reigns forever.He is the LORD God. No person can be God.
This is what
the popular New Age Movement teaches. They teach that every person
has within themselves god-like qualities that need to be known
and used. Remember, Satan once believed this about himself, and
he was cast out of heaven. Both Satan, Adam and Eve lost everything
because they put themselves above God by believing they could
be as gods.
Berit Kjos sums up the New Age movement very clearly:
The New Age
is actually ancient occultism with a facelift. It is the beautiful
side of evil, an enticing facade for the kingdom of darkness.
Disguised as peace, power, wisdom, and love, this attractive deception
pretends to offer everything God promises, yet asks nothing in
return - for the moment. Its seductive call to "be like God"
dates back to the Garden of Eden.(1)
