In the last couple years there has been an unusually high number of movies that have an obvious and clear New Age message. Indigo Children and Bee Season are two of those along with more recent releases such as The Shaggy Dog and Peaceful Warrior.
Now, soon to be released (October), is Conversations With God, based on the very popular book series by New Age writer and actor Neale Donald Walsch:
August 8, 2006 — (Los Angeles, CA) “Conversations with God” the book series that inspired and changed the lives of millions around the world is now a film that opens nationwide on October 27, 2006 (released by Samuel Goldwyn Films). Adapted from the books by Neale Donald Walsch, “Conversations with God” tells the true story of Walsch (played by Henry Czerny) who, at the lowest point in his life, asks God some very hard questions. The answers he gets from God/within become the foundation of the internationally acclaimed book series that has sold over 7 million copies and been translated into 34 languages. The film chronicles the dramatic journey of a down and out man who inadvertently becomes a spiritual messenger and bestselling author. Read the rest of this article from Religion News Service
Neale Donald Walsch, describes truth in his book, Communion With God, as something that is always changing: ‘Truth is nothing more than a word meaning ‘what is right now.’ However, since conditions are always changing, changing conditions create changing truth.'” “Walsch later asks God about good and evil only to get the following response:
God: Evil is that which you call evil. Yet even that I love, for it is only through that which you call evil that you can know good; only through that which you call the work of the devil that you can know and do the work of God. I do not love hot more than I do cold, high more than low, left more than right. It is all relative. It is all part of what is. I do not love “good” more than I love “bad.” Hitler went to heaven. When you understand this, you will understand God.
Other New Age oriented movies that have surfaced recently are a href=”http://www.whatthebleep.com/whatthebleep/”>What the Bleep Do We Know? and The Celestine Prophecy (based on James Redfield’s book). Our society is quickly becoming a New Age world where meditation, the god within, global unity, and all is Divine are concepts more and more people are coming to accept as truth. And unfortunately, through contemplative spirituality, this is also happening in Christendom.
