As the world watches on in fear and anxiousness over what is currently taking place in the Middle East, let us pray that the body of Christ throughout the world will continue to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with those who are spiritually lost. Perhaps more now than any time in history, the purity of that gospel message is being attacked and challenged, and yet it is in that very message that salvation can be found. Jesus made that clear when he said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
Contemplative/emerging spirituality began in the Garden of Eden when the serpent (Satan) said to Eve, You will be like God, and later in Isaiah 14 when he said, I will be like the most High God. This is actually the premise of the New Age in that all paths lead to God as well as all humanity has Divinity within.
Because contemplative/emerging spirituality is now influencing most well-known Christian leaders and countless ministries, churches and organizations, we as believers must continue to speak up and warn about this belief system which ultimately rejects the gospel and prohibits it from being preached.
