The Gift of Discernment: The New Age and Original Sin

The New Age Movement is a mirror image of mankind’s original sin. This is a controversial topic I’m very passionate about and want to bring light to.

What was the very first sin man committed? “Disobeying God” you might answer. Let’s dig a little deeper. What was it the serpent used as bait to get man to sin? “You will be like God.” the serpent said. The bait is identical to what the New Age Community uses to deceive masses of people. “You are divine—you are God.” Those who adopt New Age beliefs have no reason to worship a creator outside of themselves because they create their own reality through manifestation. And yes, even Christians will be deceived by this because they think “This really works, so I must be God.” I’m here to tell you that you are calling on a higher power, indeed, but it is not of God— it is anti-God, or the absence of God.

2 Corinthians 11:14 reads “And it is no wonder the devil disguises himself as an angel of light.”

The New Age Community is all about “love and light”, hijacked like many other things from the Creator God such as rainbows, crystals, and the like.

This calls for wisdom and discernment. Study your Bible, and you’ll see that all of these things have been prophesied. The sad truth is, many who are deceived into adopting these beliefs and lifestyle are led astray because they don’t want God to be real—they would much rather be their own God because they love their sin too much to abandon it. Now, no one is perfect—we all sin. But living in sin, repeated sin, without making an effort to leave it behind is not the same as making mistakes. My advice is to take a moment and ask yourself, honestly, is this you?

  1. So you assume that the Bible is the truth, and all of the people who don’t believe as you do are wrong. There is a good chance that you are just as wrong as you believe they are.


    1. Thanks for your comment. You have a good point. However, the Bible has fulfilled prophecies, not just the ones listed in this post either.


    2. Hey, this is kind of a coincidence, but I just so happened to stumble on this video today. It’s a new podcast I discovered today, and I saw the title of this one and thought of you. It addresses so many things I hadn’t even taken into consideration, and it talks about prophecies in the Bible as well. It’s a 28 minute video, and I hope you’ll check it out.

      And if that link doesn’t work, you can go to YouTube and search “The Authentic Christian Podcast—Why should we believe the Bible?”
