The New Age Counterfeit

The New Age cult stole the principles of imagination and visualization from the Word of God and perverted them into a false doctrine. From the days of Adam and Eve until today, the tactic of the enemy has been to take pieces of truth that God has spoken and mix it with principles that dilute, confuse, and deceive. They reveal a way that looks right, but in the end it leads to destruction (Proverbs 14:12). Although imagination and visualization are spiritual principles, they are only proper to use when attached to the will of God that is expressed in the good things He has promised in His Word.

The enemy has taught that anything you can imagine or visualize can be yours and is completely detached from anything godly. The flaw in this principle is that man is encouraged to realize his personal fantasies and desires of the flesh without regard to God. Because New Age thinking builds upon these principles incorrectly, much of the church has ignored them completely out of fear. Too often some religious leaders have completely ignored the true principles of God because the enemy has highjacked and distorted them. We should never ignore the true operation of godly principles because someone else is operating in these principles falsely.

Can you imagine someone discovering that there are counterfeit dollar bills being passed around in the community? Then because of this, they discard and throw away all of their dollar bills, not knowing whether they are counterfeit or not? Of course, not! That’s ridiculous! You never throw away what is good because bad exists.

Therefore, we must never discard the true principles of the Word of God because someone else is using or teaching them incorrectly.

There are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. Galatians 1:7‑8
