Introduction

In recent years, the New Age movement has come out of the closet in the Church and in the world. The New Age movement includes those who follow a potpourri of beliefs and practices that fall outside the boundaries of traditional Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism. Its manifestations are protean. Some Catholic nuns walk on labyrinths to contact the "Divine Feminine." Increasing numbers of health insurance companies have heeded comsumers' demands to cover offbeat treatments, ranging from Ayurvedic herbal medicine to "therapeutic touch" – in which the healer's hands manipulate "energy fields" but never touch the patient's body. Tony Robbins, a sometime adviser to President Clinton, promotes walking across a bed of hot coals as a way to express personal mastery. The First Lady, not to be outdone, has contacted the spirit of Eleanor Roosevelt under the guidance of Jean Houston – a New York-based avatar who runs a "Mystery School," and who inspired the current fad for walking on labyrinths. Millions of Americans with more money than common sense are buying this trendy, feel-good style of spirituality; they have helped to keep Neale Donald Walsch's book-length Conversations with God on the best-seller lists since 1997. These are the people who proudly say, "I'm spiritual, but I'm not religious"; their number is legion.

Many Christians view the New Age movement as merely self-indulgent silliness. Unfortunately, there's far more substance to New Age beliefs than astrology, crystals, weird workshops, and psychobabble. New Age spiritual leaders have a firmly entrenched anti-Christian worldview, and harbor special hatred for the Catholic Church. They believe that the fall was really humanity's ascent into knowledge, assisted by Lucifer – whom they hail as the bringer of light and wisdom. They expect an imminent, apocalyptic transformation that will lead humanity into the New Age. By acts of menor by an act of "spirit," earth will be cleansed of those who refuse to evolve. In the New Age, there will be world government; the economy will be remade to promote "sharing." Traditional morality and traditional families will disappear. Orthodox religions – especially Christianity and Judaism – are "separative" and "obsolete"; in the New Age, they too will vanish.

History and Supporters of the New Age

In a better world, such teachers would have a following only among a few alienated misfits. The reality is otherwise. For the last 125 years, New Age leaders worldwide have followed the false light of Theosophy; they now wisper sweet lies into the itching ears of the powerful – politicians, media moguls, UN officials, foundation grant-makers, and Anglican bishops alike. As the West moves into a post-Christian era, the influence of the New Age movement spreads.

Helena Petrovna Blavatsky blended Eastern religion with Wester occultism, establishing the Theosophical movement in 1875 in New York City.
