Letter to the Editor: Miraculously Delivered From New Age, But Where are the Voices Warning?


Tony – Born-Again in 2011

To Lighthouse Trails:

Just finished reading  The Light That Was Dark by Warren B. Smith, which I could not put down, and immediately felt compelled to write on behalf of myself, my wife, and another couple who are close friends who we regularly Bible study with. We were all miraculously delivered from the deception of New Age/human potential movement that appears to be alarmingly spreading like wildfire across the globe and into our churches as we speak, while scarcely one voice has been raised in opposition.  I just wanted to say that as one who was also blinded by the false light of New Age hippiedom, we feel a very strong parallel with the path Warren was and is now on. The same urgent fire has been lit in us by the Holy Spirit to warn others that “another jesus” has breached the walls of sleeping modern Christianity, which we firmly believe is rapidly rolling out the red carpet of “strong delusion” for the Antichrist to hit the world stage in the “name of love” as prophesied in 2 Thessalonians 2.

Our beliefs are fundamental in nature, and we try to evangelize to our former New Age friends and now live near Sedona, Arizona, as we believe the Lord had placed us here to witness to its New Age spiritual darkness. My main purpose for writing this is that I feel a connection to Warren as I believe we are on the same path, which I believe is far narrower than post modern and emerging Christianity of today apathetically assumes. I believe the Holy Spirit is compelling me to write this.

I personally feel God has lit a fire of urgency in our spirits to be vocal about this subtle, yet insidious deception  the enemy tries to put out, which not only comes from opposition through New Agers but even more disturbingly through those professing the name of Christ, who have often come to label us as unloving, negative, paranoid, pharisaical, etc., as what I believe is nothing more than a tactic on the part of the adversary, for us to lay down the sword of Truth, which I will not and cannot. It is a battle indeed, a very real war against spiritual wickedness in high places that does indeed require the full armor of God. Oftentimes it can be disheartening and discouraging, leaving us to feel like an archaic, unheard, or annoying voice in the wilderness.

I believe God let us spend many years in wandering the wilderness of New Age humanism so we could well understand the subtle tactics our enemy, so that once He delivered us from it, we would not be saved to be silent about it, but to be vocal.

In Christ,

Tony B.

But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand. – Ezekiel 33:6
