10 Reasons Why Christianity and New Age Cannot Blend

 I tried to blend New Age and Christianity for many years. Here are just 10 of the many reasons why Christianity and the new age are opposites that can never be blended:

1. New Age glorifies the self; Christianity glories God.

2. New Age says: “Follow your heart, and do whatever makes you happy.” Christianity says: “Follow and obey Jesus, for the heart is deceitful.”

3. New Age turns to ascended masters, spirit guides, the universe, astrology, and angels for help; Christianity only follows the Holy Trinity.

4. New Age tries to predict and control the future; Christianity trusts God with the future.

5. New Age says there is no sin, hell, devil, or demons; Christianity believes Jesus’ teachings about sin, hell, devil, and demons in the Holy Bible.

6. New Age relies upon channeled books, cards, and psychic readings for guidance; Christianity relies upon prayer and the Bible.

7. New Age says Jesus is an “ascended master” or “just a man who was enlightened,” and they imagine that Jesus is an “anything goes” laid-back man; Christianity says that Jesus was fully God and fully man during his earthly ministry, and he’s now at the right-hand of our Heavenly Father God, as the second member of the Holy Trinity. We will all stand before God on judgment day, and we want Jesus there with us to attest that we’ve been forgiven for our sins.

8. New Age says you get into heaven by “being a good person;” Christianity says it’s not your works that save you – it’s God’s grace through your faith in the life, death, and resurrection of our Savior Jesus (who was the only sinless and truly good person to walk the earth). God’s love doesn’t give us license to do whatever we please.

9. New Age tries to “manifest” their wants and desires; Christianity trusts God’s promise to meet the needs of believers.

10. New Age says there are many paths to God; Christianity quotes Jesus’ own words: “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

Doreen Virtue was saved out of a lifetime in the new age, by the grace of God through her faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus. She now reads and studies the Bible daily, and encourages others to trust God and His Word in the Bible.

  3. Hi Doreen,
    I studied with you in 2004 in Kona and in Laguna Beach. I’ve listened to you talk about Jesus this past year and at first, had doubts. But, Jesus came to me on March 1st 2018. I didn’t see Him but heard His voice clearly. He came to me during 50 days and dictated a book to me about “The Way”. He urged me to talk about Him and so I have started a “Soulful Sunday” Facebook LIVE where I share His messages weekly. It was not an easy decision to come out of the “closet” and speak so openly about Him as I am sure you understand. But like you, I could not refuse “The Call”. I admire you for being such an adamant follower of Jesus and for your integrity towards Him. I would love to speak to you personally about this if you feel inclined. Thank you so much for leading the way and for being such a great example no matter the cost. Your reward will be in Heaven. Lucinda Gabriel

  4. I have made so many mistakes in my life and tried to walk my own way. The results haven’t been the best and I had to go through a lot of pain. I still struggle with my faith because I have been of the path. Thank you for the praying 🙏🏼 I love your new way to help us through God’s love 💕 and wisdom. God bless you.

  5. Thank you, dear Jesus for your mercies, especially providing us with the wonderful example of your cherished one, Doreen Virtue, as a modern day “preacher” of the truth of Your Word. I pray you bless her, and us, with an outpouring of your Holy Spirit, so that we may know how and when to speak of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth. We know that you desire that none be lost, and we humbly ask that all our cherished loved ones will come to know the peace that passes all understanding. Thank you!

  6. Thank you doreen needed this today as I have been reflecting back on my life sin my heart attack 8 weeks ago, I truly believe God was with me that day as I lost consciousness and I’m here in his glory. Thank you lordx

  7. Glory to you Doreen for standing for Jesus…I followed you in the new age but found there was still an emptiness no matter what I did to be the best I could be and found life was not responding to my efforts. I was baptized on April 8 and have not looked back. I love your testament to our Savior Jesus…Roman 14:11 The other day my friend was at Starbucks and took a photo of large wall letters for purchased “JESUS” so yes “every knee will bow and every tongue shall confess to God”

    Bless you be my Christian Sister

  8. Amen. Always good to hear God’s word. Guilt, shame and regret are always difficult to face, but knowing God’s mercy and love never fails to heal.

  9. Thank you Doreen! this was super helpful to me. GOD BLESS YOU! You are one of greatest Jesus disciples! I love the christian books that you writing, you are truly the best!

  10. Doreen that was beautiful I really appreciate your blog post and the wonderful angelic messages you leave us.
    Thank you

  11. I have been struggling with this for most of my life, thinking God could never forgive me! Now I know that he can and has! Thanks very much Doreen and god bless you! Much love!
    Regards, Ivana.

  12. Thank you so much for that . It was exactly what I needed to read. Sometimes you do not realise how under attack you are until you feel the heavy weight of your own shame and clock that constant critical inner voice.

  13. This is such a wonderful blog. This topic is something I was afraid of when I decided to follow the Christian path.

    Now I know better. God forgives and heals! 😊

    Thanks Doreen!

  14. Hi Doreen,

    This message couldn’t have come at a better time. I am glad to stumble upon this blog. I have recently re-dedicated my Life to the Lord after spending almost a decade in the New Age Community. After careful consideration and much internal dialogue, I have found it in the best interest of my family and our future to let go of this aspect of my Life, mainly since it is not producing the “positivism” it claims but more or less creating more judgmental criticism.

    Something I found a lot less when I was with Jesus in my Christian faith. Therefore, I felt a calling back to my roots, and I’ve followed. It was as if Jesus was knocking at my door.

    Revelations 3:20
    New Living Translation
    “Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends.

    I am a friend of God, and always have been. It was time for me to go home. 🙂

    I appreciate the scriptures that you included as well.
    Happy belated Mothers Day!
    Thank you.

  15. Dear Doreen,
    I have been praying to Our Lord Jesus Christ everyday for the last month asking for forgiveness for failing in so many aspects of my life. I want to have His help, to live a better life, to help people and myself be better. And to feel loved because I have never felt loved. Thank you Doreen for inspiring me to be open. Norma

  16. I praise God for showing me, through you, that I have been allowing the accuser to use me, to stay muddled in my own criticism of myself and others. PRAISE GOD FOR FORGIVENESS THROUGH JESUS CHRIST!!! I love you dear sister!

  17. Very helpful. I wound up here after seeing your interview with Steve Bancarz on Youtube, where you mentioned self-loathing. You made a few comments that really resonated with me.
    Hearing your testimony, I respect that you were willing to walk away from a more affluent lifestyle to where you are now.

    I just wanted to encourage you with a verse about those who lead others to God:

    And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.
    (Dan 12:3)
