CHRISTIANITY TODAY, CONTEMPLATIVE SPIRITUALITY
AND THE NEW AGE ..
.

America's leading Christian magazine has turned to promoting mysticism, contemplative prayer and other New Age, anti-Christian practices.

Don't believe it? See for yourself.

Christianity Today Has Become a Central News Agency on Behalf of Contemplative Spirituality. One article after the next is being written by this magazine to convince readers that CP is good. See below:

(Christianity Today)
In this article about spiritual directors, top contemplative advocates are

As a matter of fact, the only ones the article is promoting are strong contemplative advocates, those who promote: Universalism, Buddhism, chanting, mantra meditation and the New Age movement, which states all paths lead to God.

Contemplative Spirituality: A belief system that uses ancient mystical practices to induce altered states of consciousness (the silence) and is rooted in mysticism and the occult but often wrapped in Christian terminology. The premise of contemplative spirituality is pantheistic (God is all) and panentheistic (God is in all). Common terms used for this movement are "spiritual formation," "the silence," "the stillness," "ancient-wisdom," "spiritual disciplines," and many others.

Spiritual Formation: A movement that has provided a platform and a channel through which contemplative prayer is entering the church. Find spiritual formation being used, and in nearly every case you will find contemplative spirituality. In fact, contemplative spirituality is the heartbeat of the spiritual formation movement.
