The following snip is from a website sent to me by my neighbor, a hybrid Buddhist, New Ager, Native American Shamanism type person.
“About SHATTERING THE MATRIX: We will co-create the world we want when we have the courage to see what needs correcting & by becoming fully proactive in its creation”.
Yes, she/they actually believe this; at some point in time, there will be a tipping point at which time, the “enlightened ones” who have “evolved” spiritually will rule and master the “cleansed world” THEY have co-created, (along with some nebulous god out there somewhere in the universe). Flaky? Yes, indeed. In fact, there seems to be no end to the delusional spiritual beliefs that run rampant throughout the New Age Community, and, even my own neighborhood, city and state. These unscriptural, ungodly persuasions are not by any means in the minority in this part of the country. Using the example of my neighbor, allow me to share a bit of the, anything goes beliefs of the weird, bizarre, and deluded.
As I became acquainted with this woman, I think she must have mistaken me for one of her own, merely on finding my interest in medicinal herbal-ism, which seems to be popular among New Agers, Shamans and “Curandero’s”, ….or, that it was uncommon in this neck of the desert to come across someone who wasn’t of her ilk. So, at first, I just allowed her to talk as I began to learn what I was dealing with concerning this lady. And it clearly was not going to be like minded fellowship or my cup of tea. I’d better make sure my armor is in place.
Shortly after moving in she shared with me that this was the first time in 35 years that her deceased mother ‘talked with her…this didn’t surprise me since the lady that moved out of that same apartment had a rather occult bent to her personality as well. My neighbor, I shall call Trish, shared that the 35 yrs prior when her deceased mother communicated with her was at the Mausaleum where her cremated remains were vaulted, when she said she heard her mother’s voice cry out, “Get me out of here, there are evil spirits in here”. That’s strange enough because Trish said her mother had been a witch. Sort of a pot kettle black situation. Imagine that, Satan and his demons are such pretenders. But I digress. So, my neighbor did just that…broke into the vault and took the burial urn with her mother’s remains with her. And then slept with them, until she interred them later in another plot.
Then, one day as we were visiting across the fence so to speak…(our apts are only at most 25 ft apart, facing each other; the conversation turned to cloning. She said without blinking that her best friend was a clone, and the most gentle soul you’d ever want to meet. I didn’t ask to be introduced for obvious reasons. If her friend was indeed a clone, I don’t believe he even had a soul, let alone being a gentle one. Cloned anything…or anyone is not from our Most High God and Savior, the Lord Jesus, or of His Creation.
Next day…it’s “extraterrestrials”. According to my neighbor, “Trish”, they are not only real, but they’ve been “harvesting” our DNA for the last 3,000 yrs. If that were true, seems like we wouldn’t even have enough DNA to get by on. She didn’t tell me what they were doing with it, and I didn’t ask.
This summer alone, she has spent a total of 2 weeks at two different Indian Reservations participating, fasting and dancing at the Sun Dance Ceremonies. It is at these ceremonies, body piercings are made into the skin and attached to a cord and the “sacrificee” is made to stand without flinching for hours. This is supposed to be a sacrifice apparently to the spirits to accomplish or answer certain prayers for healing or whatever the need is. What I can share with you about what she/Trish accomplished was getting her back out of place, her in pain, and demonic manifestations of anger and an escalation of her already in place mean streak.
So, you may be wondering if I shared the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ with Trish. Of course, and it was met with hostility and anger. “I will never forget her angry words, “That man on the Cross didn’t change anything”, and “I don’t need any Lord and Savior!!!) (My note; No, not all. His death on the Cross was the pivotal point of all history, that’s all) In any case, this was the reaction of the same woman, who embraces all religions with open arms…all except Christianity and it’s Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.
So, does this tell you anything about why Christians can have no fellowship with unbelievers?
Ephesians 5:11….And do not have fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather even expose them.
My son, if sinners entice you, Do not consent.
Those who forsake the law praise the wicked, But those who keep the law strive with them.
“For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.
to open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the dominion of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been sanctified by faith in Me.’
The night is almost gone, and the day is near. Therefore let us lay aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light.
1 Corinthians 5:9
I wrote you in my letter not to associate with immoral people;
2 Corinthians 6:14
Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness?
