The Soon Coming Judgment Of God Upon America and How To Escape It                 150
hundreds or thousands more. Diana Eck in her book A New Religious America confirms this, she
states: “The United States has become the most religiously diverse nation on earth….” She
further says, “This is an astonishing new reality. We have never been here before.”
The adoption of occult teachings and practices by American Christians is noted by
George Barna in his book The State of the Church: 2002. He writes:
Over the past 20 years we have seen the nation's theological views slowly
become less aligned with the Bible. Americans still revere the Bible and like to
think of themselves as Bible-believing people, but the evidence suggests
otherwise. Christians have increasingly been adopting spiritual views that come
from Islam, Wicca, secular humanism, the eastern religions and other sources.
Because we remain a largely Bible-illiterate society, few are alarmed or even
aware of the slide toward syncretism - a belief system that blindly combines
beliefs from many different faith perspectives.
Further, according to a nationwide study conducted by The Barna Research Group, 44%
of American adult believe “the Bible, the Koran and the Book of Mormon are all different
expressions of the same spiritual truths.”
The Bible, Koran and the Book of Mormon certainly
have some common old testament roots including the Ten Commandments but they do not teach
the same spiritual truths. Muslims and Mormons would be the first to point this out.
America isn’t only filled with spirits of false religion; there are also spirits associated
with every sin such as: lying (this also includes rumors, gossip, testifying falsely etc.);
covetousness (these lead to theft, fraud, cheating, materialism etc.); violence; murder; sexual
perversion (this includes premarital sex, adultery, homosexuality, beastiality, pedophilia,
pornography, etc.); consumption of mind altering substances; children who disobey and do not
honor their parents etc. Anything that goes against God's law and character has a demon spirit
that promotes it.
Only one religion accepts Jesus Christ as the Son of God and the savior of the world and
that is Christianity. Jesus plainly stated: “He that is not with me is against me” (Matt. 12:30 and
Luke 11:23). As we shall see this is so very true! There is a religious movement that embraces
anything and everything except Christianity. Not only does it not embrace Christianity, it very
much apposes it. This religious movement is called the New Age.
The New Age Religion
The New Age Religious movement is sweeping America; its philosophies are being
embraced by our government, our schools, our Universities and by both individual Christians
and by entire churches. The teachings of New Age Religions are not new at all; it is the same
practices and beliefs that were being taught by Nimrod in Babylon at the time the Tower of
Babel was built. The only thing new is the new names and faces of those promoting it. The
present day movement in America can largely be credited to the Russian theosophist Madame
Helena Blavatsky and her disciple Alice Bailey. Theosophy is a religious philosophy based on
Buddhism, evolution, reincarnation, and pantheism (the belief in many gods). Central to this
