I do know a little about the New Age. Seems it had infiltration into our local Diocese. Took years to clean it up! I saw many grown people angered to tears - the heartbreak was awful. One of the biggest new agers in the Church at the time was Fr. Matthew Fox whom Cardinal Ratzinger after reviewing Fox’s material, silenced for a year then canned altogether. Contributing to Fox’s defrocking from the Church was book “Original Blessing” to name one of his promotions of panentheism - if I’m correct he altered pantheism to panentheism.
New Age originates from the 2 big lies from the garden (ol’ hairy legs himself) in Genesis “thou shalt not surely die” & thou shalt be as gods". These 2 big lies keep coming back with different window dressing & still work. Why change your M.O. if the lies still work.
A consideration: name a denomination that believes they shall be as gods?
The founder of the New Age Movement is Helena Petrovna Blavatsky of “The Theosophical Society” and Alice K. Bailey who followed in her footsteps. In late 1800’s Blavatsky received automatic writings & later Bailey. THE best book on this subject in my opinion is Constance Cumbey’s “The Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow” hard to find but Cumbey put the whole thing together & went out & exposed this LONG before anyone else. (I give her credit for the info in this reply)
Hitler was a devote of Blavatsky after he got kicked out of art school in Vienna. Apparently at Nurenberg Trials, the german generals were asked why, how did they come up with this evil plan? Their reply was essentially “the masters (demons) made us do it.”
New age has crept into every aspect of our society - no doubt about it. I’ve studied this for nearly 30 years and thankfully Our Lord is still working on uprighting that Diocese; they now have an exceptional Bishop. It’s taken years to clear away the dead wood & it’s certainly NOT PERFECT but doing much better, thank you!
For more reading on the New Age: Fr Mtch Pacwa & Johnette Benkovic have authored books. Great resources @ ewtnreligiouscatelogue.com & LHLA.com & Women of Grace.
