Dr. James Spencer Explains How New Ageism Perverts Biblical Teaching and is Infiltrating Christianity

GettrGab

Dr. James Spencer warns that the philosophy and religion of the New Age is a merger of Creator and creation, which promotes setting aside God’s ultimate wisdom to pursue our own. James is a theologian and author, as well as the President of the D.L. Moody Center. He explains that New Ageism routinely adopts good and faithful practices and perverts them, which can sometimes drive Christians to abandon good practices by being too defensive. Meditating on Christ, for example, is a great Biblical practice, while meditating on anything else is not! James further discusses the core beliefs in the New Age movement, which are in direct opposition to the teachings of Christianity, such as reincarnation, astrology, psychic readings, and energy healing.
