It's Going To Be Hard For Baptists To Get Aboard New Age Teaching?!?!?!?
Reader the name “Baptist” has come to mean many things to many people, and so it can sometimes cause confusion. Just the notion that Bishop Carlton Pearson is preaching at any church with the name Baptist in the title is confusing, and line blurring. As with any other church, the name above the door is not as important as what is taught inside.
In the past twenty so years, New Age influence has been steadily creeping into many of our churches. New Agers do not believe in evil. Therefore, they do not accept man's problem as separation by sin from God. Instead, they believe that each of us has forgotten his or her own divinity. Therefore, the New Age solution is to seek "higher consciousness" through meditation, breathing exercises, yoga, diet, crystals, channeling. spirit guides, and more. Each of these diverse practices has the same purpose: to awaken the god in man.
