Which religion should I convert to?
Don't forget, our Beloved Saint Paul's writings were written in hindsight and most of the "New" Testament writers(Matthew/Mark/Luke/ John) were influenced by Paul's own writings. Don't forget, Saint Paul was forming a "New" thought/movement in his day, and was using everything at his disposal to promote this NEW thinking....therefore...because the truth of the birth of Jesus was not known, it was claimed. As Savior, the prophesies of the OLD way were "fulfilled" by this NEW persona of God. Devout Judaism was appalled, as some of us also seem to be with New Age thought.
New Agers false gospel believe that Christ and Jesus are distinct in some way. They say that Jesus was the man in whom the Christ dwelt. The Christ, is said to be a kind of cosmic principle, obtainable by anyone who is enlightened. Despite modern New Age belief's the Bible makes no distinction at all between "Jesus" and "Christ". Furthermore, the clear testimony of the Bible is that Jesus Christ never "became" the Christ, in some way, but rather that He was always Jesus Christ (Matt. 2:4; Luke 2:11, 26). New Agers false gospel follows the false light of Theosophy; they now whisper sweet lies into the itching ears of Christians. Christ loves, and came to save,all, even those who are now lost followers in the New Age movements. : "Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do!" [Lk. 23:34]) Let us never forget to pray for them all, and to entrust them all to God's Mercy. For all of us, myself included, are utterly dependent upon this same Mercy.
New Agers do not speak of a source of authority. If such is referred to, it is not an external authority but an internal one. In the New Age Movement, the individual is considered to be the standard of truth. New Age proponent Shirley MacLaine reveals the supposed power of the individual when commenting, "It's all my dream. I'm making all of it happen -- good and bad -- and I have the choice of how I'll relate to it and what I'll do about it."
MacLaine goes on to say, "Perhaps everyone has his own truth, and truth as an objective reality simply does not exist."The Scriptures, on the other hand, present objective truths.
They are inspired (literally, "God-breathed"); therefore, they can be fully relied on.The fact of the inspiration of the Scriptures is seen in 2 Timothy 3:16: "All Scripture is inspired by God, and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training irighteousness. The method of inspiration is seen in 2 Peter 1:21: "No prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God."The extent of inspiration is seen in Matthew 5:18: "For truly I say to you," said the Lord Jesus Christ, "until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass away from the Law, until all is accomplished."So no individual is left to himself and his inner feelings as final authority; the Bible serves as this objective standard.
Truth Absolute,. because it IS The Truth
The Absolute Truth IS,.....Satan's primary tactic in opposing God is not to foster atheism but religion; not to prove there is no God but to be worshipped as God. "I have not come to found a new religion," Lord Maitreya says. "I have come to teach the art of Self-realization," something which is neither an ideology nor a religion, but benefits people of all religions and those who have none. "I come to you 'like a thief in the night'", He tells us, "so that you will not become too excited. Slowly, as you become aware, you can 'digest' what is 'eaten'. In awareness you will know Me. In 'isms' you will fight against me"
The central objection Christians have to the "New Age" movement is the result of a simple and logical three-step exercise in the process of elimination. There is no "New Age" practitioner who has ever been able to refute this classically simple logic. Instead, they employ torrents of verbiage and Newspeak to try and confuse the issue. WHY THE "NEW AGE" MOVEMENT IS SATANIC: THE SIMPLE THREE-STEP PROCESS OF ELIMINATION (1) There are only two ultimate sources of supernatural power: GOD and SATAN. (2) The "New Age" movement involves supernatural phenomenon which are, quite obviously, not of God. (3) Therefore, by simple elimination, all "New Age" supernatural phenomena must be Satanic.
There can be no doubt whatever that the Devil is the motivating force behind the "New Age" movement. This seductive philosophy has lured millions of one-time Evangelicals and Catholics into its sticky trap, from which there seems to be no escape. Once a person has tasted total freedom and has gained 'permission' to construct his own reality at will, the idea of organized religion and the concept of any type of moral or ethical limitation is repugnant. In short, the "New Age" movement is nothing more or less than ancient Paganism repackaged in a much more attractive and seductive format. The True Nature of the "New Age" Movement. You too shall be as God; you surely shall never die. Satan speaking to Eve in Genesis 3:4-5. The Bottom Line. The true essence of the "New Age" movement can be summarized quite simply; EVERYONE CAN CREATE THEIR OWN REALITY, BECAUSE EVERYONE IS THEIR OWN GOD.
AND Jameslee now rests his case! LOL <VBG>
As been said by others on here that know the truth of Gods word through Jesus Christ,,.. jameslee's, faith, philosophy of the new age movement is nothing more or less than ancient Paganism, satanism, repackaged in a much more attractive and seductive format.

It is of of the goal of jameslee, faith njoy to cause people to rebel against the true Lord God Almighty, Jesus Christ of the Bible The Bottom Line.,they believe satans lie "You too shall be as God; you surely shall never die.. Satan speaking to Eve in Genesis 3:4-5. THEY BELIEVE EVERYONE CAN CREATE THEIR OWN REALITY, BECAUSE EVERYONE IS THEIR OWN GOD.

Another satanic lying response, from a child of satan, one out of touch with Jesus Christ the Lord God Almighty.jameslee has nothing to say with biblical substance, just more lies conjured up from his deceived new age mind. jameslee and his false new age gospel of self truly are a projection of who his god is.(satan). jameslee is not for The Lord God almighty, Jesus Christ of the bible and does not belong on this blog.
