The New Age god is an impersonal force.

  • It is a pantheistic belief.

New Age teaching makes human beings god.

  • Humans only need to be enlightened about their divine identity.

Reincarnation is the New Age afterlife.

    -We want to be god rather than bow to God
    -It is morally unchallenging
    -It promises an optimistic future
    -Churches have failed to demonstrate biblical Christianity
