    There’s a difference between those who believe in Jesus Christ and trust in him as their Lord and Savior, and those who do not:

    John 3:16-19 — “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
    “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.”

    John 5:24 — “Truly, truly, I say to you that the one hearing My word and believing the One having sent Me, he has eternal life and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life.”

    John 6:28-29 — “Therefore they said to Him, “What must we do, that we may be doing the works of God?”
    29Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you should believe in Him whom He has sent.”

    Acts 2:37-39 — “And having heard, they were pierced to the heart and said to Peter and the other apostles, “Men, brothers, what shall we do?”
    38And Peter says to them, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39For the promise is to you and to your children and to all those at a distance, as many as the Lord our God shall call to Himself.”

    John 14:16-17 — “And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you to the age— 17the Spirit of truth, whom the world is not able to receive, because it does not see Him nor know. But you know Him, for He abides with you and He will be in you.”

    Romans 8:9-11 — “Now you are not in flesh but in Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you; but if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not of Him. But if Christ is in you, the body is indeed dead on account of sin, but the Spirit is life on account of righteousness. 
    “And if the Spirit of the One having raised up Jesus out from the dead dwells in you, the One having raised up Christ Jesus out from the dead also will give life to your mortal bodies, on account of His Spirit dwelling in you.“

    2 Corinthians 5:18-20 — “All this is from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to Himself in Christ, not counting men’s trespasses against them. And He has committed to us the message of reconciliation. Therefore we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making His appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ: Be reconciled to God.”

    1 John 3:24 — “And the one keeping His commandments abides in Him, and He in him. And by this we know that He abides in us: by the Spirit whom He has given to us.”

    Hi brother great insight. I have a grandmother and her sister that is in this new age deception. I didn’t realize this until I had a conversation with her and her sister about a year and a half ago and I was shocked about what they believe. She brought me to the Lord when I was young. They go to the fathers house church in fort collins. And I watched the videos of the preaching and I believe they are a cult. There is nothing remotely close to biblical truth. I am going to go and talk to them and want to get together and meet with them and their church. I will be praying that the Lord will speak to them through the word and the holy Spirit. They are the ones that separate themselves from the church and speak against the church calling us”the law”. Do you have any experience talking with this kind of false teaching?

  4. Kevin, you are writing from a college that is heavily promoting eastern-style meditation (a practice that has its roots in panentheism – God in all). You do not understand the point being made here in Warren’s article. Not all is one, and the Bible makes it clear that this is so. It is true that Jesus Christ died for the sins of all and that any one who believes on Him will not perish, but what you are promoting is universalism, and that is not a biblical view.

    Acts 17:

    24 “The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by human hands. 25 And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything. Rather, he himself gives everyone life and breath and everything else. 26 From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. 27 God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us. 28 ‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.’”

    In this essay you seem to scoff wholeheartedly at the notion of “Oneness” or the idea that God is “In” man in some sense, and that we are “In” Him in some sense, just because you have experienced such language in the New Age. Isn’t it also possible that the Devil could have concocted the use of “Oneness” language in the New Age as a means of defiling the Real notion of Oneness with God through Jesus Christ?

    Because if you read John 17:22-23:

    “The glory that you have given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me.”

    There you will find that mankind living and knowing True “Oneness” with the True God is Jesus’ stated intention.

    Kruger is saying that Jesus died to save the world, restoring unity and relationship with God, “once, and for all,” and was “slain before the foundation of the world.”

    You can’t study the wisdom of other religions and conclude that they have no light or wisdom and have never seen anything resembling the truth, since even nature publishes truth about God. They have some valid knowledge, but it is minuscule as compared to what is revealed in Jesus.

    Division exists, and Love brings it together into One, just as marriage makes two into one flesh. Everybody knows this, but not everybody knows that God has already, since the foundation of the world, been extending his hand in marriage for all who will accept it.

    I have read most of Warren’s book and still have on my shelf. This pamphlet looks great. Thanks a bunch.

    This heresy that everyone has God in them and that we are all divine plays right into Rob Bell’s book Love Wins: everyone goes to Heaven. If this is true Bell and Young are saying we do not need a Savior. If we observe what is happening around the world it is obvious that many people are demon-possessed, not divine.

    God is separate from creation and mankind, and we are separate from God, which is why the cross was necessary to open the way to be saved for those who receive it. We are separate from the world, its culture, and from sin, the body of Christ is separated unto the Lord in holiness. The fork in the road is coming. We must choose to remain separate in holiness and perhaps suffer martyrdom, and those who unite in ‘oneness’ with sin and the fallen cursed world will have peace for five minutes and then sudden destruction, and the lake of fire after that. The choice? Easy. The Lord at all cost!
