True Christ

I just listened to this talk from VCY America. Warren Smith describes some of his experiences in the New Age which are much like my experiences in charismania. With all that is going on in the world today, not just in America, but the middle east, in our churches and the government we need to take notice.

Knowing the True Christ in an Age of Counterfeits

Warren Smith (B.A. University of Pennsylvania; M.S.W. Tulane University) is a free lance writer and community social worker who was formerly involved in the New Age movement. He has served as a program coordinator for people with special needs, directed several homeless programs, and has worked most recently as a Hospice social worker in New Orleans and on the California coast. He has written extensively on the subject of spiritual deception and has been widely interviewed on radio and television. He is author of The Light that was Dark, Deceived on Purpose, A Wonderful Deception and False Christ Coming: Does Anybody Care?

Having been saved out of the New Age movement, Warren Smith knows that there are many “christs” in the world today. As we are about to observe Good Friday and the resurrection of Christ, Warren underscores the importance of knowing the true and risen Christ, not a counterfeit.

The discussion begins with mention of Shirley McClain. She may not have been taken seriously years ago because of her New Age beliefs yet she was recently on the Oprah Winfrey Show. Why? It’s because some New Age teachings are no longer considered “fringe” but are now mainstream. Smith proves the point when he references Purpose-Driven author Rick Warren who has brought in three New Age doctors into his church through his “Daniel Plan”.

From there the discussion moves on to Marianne Williamson and her deceptive book, A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles, the deceptive use of Bible terminology by New Age proponents, the experience that pointed him to Christ, the ties that the Emergentmovement has with the New Age, and more.

Also mentioned was Chuck Klein’s Understanding the Times conference on April 30th in Cedarburg, Wisconsin. Pastor Larry Debruyn, Sarah Leslie and Warren Smith will be speaking on counterfeit spirituality.

  1. Wow, that is great! Just read on Worldview Weekend Radio with Brannon Howse that Glenn Beck has announced that he going to hold a rally in Jerusalem. ” Beck declared, “It is time to return inside the walls that surround Jerusalem and stand with people of all faiths, all around the world.” Beck continues to promote ecumenicalism, to talk about miracles and now he is calling all faiths of the world to Israel. Is Beck laying the foundation for the coming antichrist who is described in the Bible as being one that will call for a one-world religion, perform counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders , and confirm a peace treaty with Israel before breaking it? This video is not far from fulfillment!So much happening, one thing right after the other.

    • There seem to be many pieces of the picture coming together along with some surprising people. Proposed peace in the middle east is a big deal, huh?

      🙂 blessings.

  2. We’ve got MANY members of the Christian faith palling around with New Agers and even supporting New Age teachings. We’ve got Christians nodding their heads at LDS Glenn Beck talking about how wonderful he is. We’ve got believers in Christ just swallowing this junk and calling it good and then today, we have a president saying that Israel and Pallestine just need to each one be a country and Israel needs to just “give back their land”…

    I don’t know about you, but I’m looking UP… It’s somewhere in 1 Thes. 4…we’re getting very, very close…

  3. I would say we are close indeed. With obama now declaring that Israel go back to the borders of 1967, I have to say this lawless man helps bring us much more closer to God’s judgment if one believes what the word says about Israel. Look up, surely our redemption draws near! I hope so!!!

    All the religious leaders, all the politicians will never save America or any nation. All I can say is I am so thankful for the faceless ones I have yet to me these past few years. I love you, mkayla. Thanks for being my endtime friend in this days.

  4. I find that most Christians still run and get their tin hats if we talk about the New Age. They don’t a know what it is but they sure think it’s a goofy concept. And here they have swallowed it hook line and sinker because of it being wrapped so nicely in Christianese. (with a pretty pink bow!) Wanted to remind folks of Warren Smith’s book, A Wonderful Deception, a must read! Thanks for the link!
