The New Age Movement (NAM) is a revamped combination of ancient jesus gospel of love, traditions and practices. The movement gets its name from the belief in the emergence of the “Age of Aquarius”. In addition to ancient influences, the NAM is deeply rooted in the counterculture movement of the 1960’s. Note: For brevity purposes, in this report I refer to the New Age Movement as the NAM.
It is hard to get an estimate of the number of New Age believers since it encompasses so many belief systems (such as reincarnation, the occult, etc.). In America alone it is estimated that 10,000,000 people believe in or practice the NAM in one way or another. However, when you add related beliefs such as in reincarnation, and other Far Eastern beliefs in the USA and the world; then the global membership is believed to be much, much greater. It truly fits the description of a harlot religion as described in end time bible prophecies.
A common belief among the NAM is that mankind has or will soon enter a new age known as the Age of Aquarius, whereby man will finally come to embrace love, joy, peace, abundance, and harmony among peoples and nations; the Golden Age of man. So based on what is happening around the world today, it is clear that this new age of peace is nowhere in sight.
I am going to clearly show you how the principles of the NAM and of the bible are diametrically opposed. You CANNOT believe in the God of the bible if you embrace the New Age philosophy. I want to re-emphasize that they are diametrically opposed – absolute opposites! They are like light versus darkness, day vs. night, like polarity, and to coin a phrase familiar with New Agers – they are opposites like “Yin and Yang”.
The term New Age refers to the coming astrological Age of Aquarius. It is similar to the Mayan belief in separate ages. According to the Age of Aquarius believers, the planet goes through large astronomical cycles which can be identified astrologically; the prior two thousand years were described as the Age of Pisces, which has now given way to the Age of Aquarius. This age is believed to last for about 2000 years, before being replaced by another age. However, the “new” in the words “New Age” are deceptive to begin with. Although they represent that it is new because of a supposed new age that will be heralded in by astrological signs (Age of Aquarius and other Astrology influences), almost every other belief and practice have ancient roots.
