The Dangers of the New Age Movement

By February 8, 2024 New Age

The New Age movement is on the rise, and it’s seducing countless well-meaning people into its web of deception. With its promises of inner peace, harmony, and mystical power, New Age practices seem enticing on the surface. But beneath the veneer lies great spiritual danger. 

There are several core beliefs of the New Age movement, each holding its own danger. 

Counterfeit Community

New Age practices offer counterfeit community and belonging, preying on people’s natural desire for meaningful relationships. Whereas traditional churches have a pastor on stage delivering a sermon, New Age meetings often sit in a circle as “equals” – creating a sense of community. But this community leads people away from Jesus rather than towards him.

Denial of Divinity

Tracing the history and spread of the New Age, it is connected to Eastern mysticism and emphasizes attaining secret spiritual knowledge. According to New Age thinking, humanity’s core problem is not sin but ignorance. We must become “enlightened” and evolve to a higher state of cosmic consciousness. This leaves no room for a personal, loving God or Jesus as savior. New Agers may admire Jesus as a moral teacher, but not as divine. Shockingly, this denial of Christ’s divinity is the very spirit of antichrist warned about in the Bible. 

New Over Old

Other core New Age beliefs include pantheism (the idea that everything is God – people, animals, trees, etc.), optimism in a coming new world order, and the power of human minds to create reality through thoughts, beliefs, and meditation. New Agers are constantly seeking the “new” in place of the “old,” not realizing that God’s truth stands unchanged throughout the ages. Worst of all, New Agers believe human beings can achieve god-like powers and blessings by tapping into their inner divinity. In truth, there is no good in mankind apart from Christ!


Tragically, celebrities like Oprah Winfrey have popularized New Age mysticism by endorsing practices like vision boards and “manifesting.” This is deception, for any power or blessing not flowing from Jesus will ultimately prove burdensome. Satan does “bless” those who fall into New Age bondage – but these blessings lead people away from their only true hope.

While New Age practices seem innocent on the surface, they open doors to demonic oppression by rejecting Jesus Christ and his salvation. As evidence, watch this disturbing video footage of demonic manifestations and deliverances taking place outdoors in a rainstorm. You will see people doubled over, groaning, coughing, and writhing uncontrollably as demons are cast out of them. This shocking footage proves how New Age involvement – no matter how sophisticated – gives Satan direct access to human lives.


In summary, these are the things to be aware of with the New Age movement:

  • It offers a counterfeit community while drawing people away from true church community in Christ.
  • It taps into humanity’s desire for spiritual significance apart from the God of the Bible. 
  • It is fundamentally anti-Christ, denying Jesus as savior.
  • It teaches the divinity of mankind and the power of human thoughts to shape reality. 
  • Its practices open doorways for demons to enter people’s lives and wreak havoc.
  • It “blesses” people with success but these blessings become snares drawing them into deeper deception.

The wise person will avoid the New Age like poison. Jesus alone forgives our sins, transforms our lives by his Spirit, and satisfies our deepest longings. While New Age practices may seem exciting or enlightening, Christians must cling to the unchanging rock of God’s Word and engage in spiritual warfare through prayer. The battle rages as Satan promotes his false religion of self-divinization! May we stand firm until the day of Christ’s return, when every knee shall bow and every tongue confess His lordship.
