The Purpose of the New Age Movement!
The New Age Movement is one of, if not “the most dangerous enemy of Christianity in the world today,…more dangerous than secular humanism.” This was the opinion of Norman L. Geisler, professor of Systematic Theology at Dallas (Tex.) Theological Seminary a number of decades ago.
Many people still even today have never heard of the New Age Movement. Its philosophy, however, has been around for a long time. Various names are associated with the movement, such as Alice Bailey, Benjamin Creme, David Spangler, Levi Dowling, George Trevelyan, Fritjof Capra, Abraham Maslow, Marilyn Ferguson, Shirley MacLaine and George Lucas and many others.
The Movement has no central headquarters; therefore, no leadership or membership lists are available. So we have no clear statistics that tell us how many people are followers. Some have sought to determine the number of adherents by other means , such as by finding out how many people hold to one or more of the major beliefs of the New Age.
Various symbols are used by the New Agers. Some of the most frequently used signs: “Rainbow, pyramid, triangle, eye in triangle, unicorn , yin-yang (two black and white comma shapes nestled together in a circle), goat head on pentagram, and even 666 worked into art.”
The ultimate agenda of the New Age Movement is the convergence of all the world religions into one unified belief and acceptance that all religions lead to the same God. The movement also promotes a concept that all religions somewhere in their system of theology believe in the coming of a future messiah who ultimately is the same ascended Master.
The origin of the movement dates back to 19th century with the theosophical teaching of Helena Blavatsky and Annie Besant. The movement received its momentum in the 1920’s with the teaching of Alice Ann Bailey. Her writings called ‘Ageless wisdom’ which she claimed to have been received telepathically (psychic communication) from the “Master of Wisdom’, influenced a lot of people in Europe, America, India and the rest of the world. Her writings were a mixture of occult teachings, psychology, astrology and philosophy.
She believed in a unified society including a global spirit of religion. The Theosophical Society, as it was called, advocated the establishment of major world religions such as Christianity, Judaism and Islam to promote unity in other world religions. Theosophical society asserted that their teachings were revealed by ‘spirit’ (demons). They laid emphasis on the progression of a blessed, master Aryan society, and a one world (new age) religion and social order.
In 1922, Bailey founded the “Lucifer Publishing Company,” which printed and distributed their teachings. These teachings were extreme in their objective and purpose. Gradually they schemed the coming new age with directives for the foundation of the necessary new world order. Their symbol was a rainbow and the society talked about wide plans for a religious war, forced redistribution of the world’s resources and the need of a new world order. Key to the plan was a restructuring of the 3 monotheistic religions (religions that believe in an exclusive 1 God) Christianity, Islam and Judaism so that they could fall in harmony under the religious umbrella of a global spiritual agenda (multiple paths to the same God).
Islam – A Catalyst for the Unification of World Religion?
1993 witnessed the acceleration of the ideals of the Parliament of World Religion a forum whose origins lied in the 1893 World Congress of Religion in Ohio, USA. This global interfaith movement is specifically promoting harmony amongst the world religions and since 1993 has been on a quest to identify how religion can be used as a major factor in the creation of a new spiritual and political world order.
However it hasn’t just been the Parliament of World Religion that has been at the forefront of creating a one world religion.
Up until his death in January 2015, King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia had been offering an outstretched hand to other faiths, engaging in a historic meeting with the Pope in November 2007 at the Vatican and calling for a dialogue of faiths centered on his fundamental belief in peaceful coexistence. King Abdullah’s travel to the Vatican was the first such visit for a Saudi king who was the custodian of 2 of Islam’s most important mosques.
The World Conference on Dialogue, sponsored by King Abdullah and hosted by King Juan Carlos of Spain in the summer of 2008, brought together hundreds of leaders from the Muslim, Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist and other faiths together in a historic gathering that broke barriers and promoted greater understanding.
King Abdullah literally offered an outstretched hand to all of the 500 or so delegates, shaking hands and listening to their views in a sun-filled Spanish government palace for hours. In a speech to the Madrid delegates, King Abdullah said: “I come to you from the place dearest to the hearts of all Muslims. This message declares that Islam is a religion of moderation and tolerance; a message that calls for constructive dialogue among followers of religions; a message that promises to open a new page for humanity in which – God willing – concord will replace conflict.”
King Abdullah later met privately for two hours with a small group of American religious leaders, ranging from Baptist preachers to Jewish rabbis, Muslim imams and heads of Sikh Indian communities, to Greek Orthodox clerics and Catholic priests. Emotions filled the room as King Abdullah told the attendees: “We are all brothers and sisters in humanity. Let us join hands to fight the ‘deviants’ who cause violence and sow hatred in the name of our peaceful religions.”
Probably the most publicized of Abdullah’s initiatives was his creation of the ‘King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz International Centre for Interreligious and Intercultural Dialogue’, a controversial, non-governmental, not-for-profit worldwide organization. The organization was founded in October 2011 in which agreements were signed by the governments of Austria, Spain and Saudi Arabia.
Pope Francis – A Catalyst for the Unification of World Religion?
Does Pope Francis intend to help the global elite achieve their goal of uniting all of the religions of the world under a single banner? Will he be instrumental in establishing a single global religion for the glorious “new age” that the global elite believe is coming? After he was elected, the cover of Time Magazine declared Pope Francis to be the “New World Pope“, and since his election Pope Francis has made it abundantly clear that he is going to make ecumenical outreach a top priority. He has spoken of his “determination to continue on the path of ecumenical dialogue“, and he has already held a number of very high profile ecumenical meetings.
Not only has he worked hard to reach out to leaders from various Christian traditions, he has also made it a point to try to acknowledge the mutual bonds that he feels with all other religions. For example, in one recent address he made it a point to say that he believes that Muslims worship and pray to the “one God” that he also worships.
This “all roads lead to the same God” philosophy is a hallmark of the one world religion that the global elite have been slowly building toward for decades. The global elite know that even with a one world economy and a one world government, humanity will never be truly united until there is a single global religion.
Unfortunately, this one world religion that they are seeking to establish is diametrically opposed to the Christianity that we find in the Bible. By throwing out Biblical truth for the sake of “friendship between men and women of different religious traditions“, is Pope Francis fundamentally betraying the faith that he claims to represent?
If there is going to be a one world religion, there will have to be a bond formed between Roman Catholicism and Islam. They are the two largest religious traditions on the planet, and so any truly “global religion” would definitely require the participation of both of them.
That is one reason why what Pope Francis has already had to say about Islam is so noteworthy. The following comes from remarks that he made during his very first ecumenical meeting…
I then greet and cordially thank you all, dear friends belonging to other religious traditions; first of all the Muslims, who worship the one God, living and merciful, and call upon Him in prayer, and all of you. I really appreciate your presence: in it I see a tangible sign of the will to grow in mutual esteem and cooperation for the common good of humanity.
The Catholic Church is aware of the importance of promoting friendship and respect between men and women of different religious traditions – I wish to repeat this: promoting friendship and respect between men and women of different religious traditions – it also attests the valuable work that the Pontifical Council for interreligious dialogue performs.
