“Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrine of demons” 1 Timothy 4:1.
I was watching a Christian TV station. The show featured a guest who claimed to have had a near death experience. Her experience may have been real. I have studied NDE’s a bit and I’m fairly certain many are fabricated but I also believe quite a few are legitimate. What do I mean by legitimate? Simply this: There is a supernatural journey of some type.

A common thread running through the specific type of NDE’s I’m going to discuss is this. Those who share this type (by my definition), lack the “full armor of God”. If you go online and google NDE’s you can find hundreds of individual cases. I am not going to refer to any cases specifically. You will easily identify the type if you decide to look into this on your own.

Most NDE’s begin with a progression down a sort of tunnel towards a bright light. The light is usually described as having a difficult to describe, unearthly brilliance. Folks are then enveloped in a supreme love where they feel more joy than is possible to know in the natural world. Most of the time, but not always, Jesus (or some manifestation of the Christian God) is the one generating this awesome feeling. I’m not going to touch on experiences where the subject meets a guru, mystic, deceased family member or other “greeter”. I’ll only say I question the validity (as to interpretation) of those experiences for the same reason I question this type of “Christian” journey.

In their altered state of unconsciousness folks become aware of a god of pure love and forgiveness. The ideal of a judgemental god is nothing but an error in earthbound perception. All are welcome here. Unconditional love without absolute moral values is what we must strive for. God, or a god essence is everywhere. It’s in clouds, flowers, trees and of course, in every person. Does this utopia, open to all, regardless of earthly conduct, jive with Bible? It does not. Does it jive with New Age philosophy? Absolutely.

“Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.” 1 John 4:1. There are only two kinds of spirits. They are from God or they are against God. If the spirit does not pass the test, it is therefore not from God which means it is against Him. If you do not read the Word you will not have the full armor of God. Lucifer means light bearer. Do you think folks can be seduced by a snarling, ugly demon? “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” Isaiah 5:20. Satan is the master counterfeiter. We are in a spiritual battle and must know the enemy.

The most effective combatants he can muster are those who appear to be attractive love filled people (or spirits). Those not armed for battle are easily deceived. We have a society that condemns nothing but Christianity. Folks are increasingly ignorant to the fact that a judgement less people are in fact, judging against judgement. Without absolute values there can be no absolute truth. Blinding people to the consequences of moral decay is the enemies goal. Taking God out of the picture, or changing His nature, is a powerful weapon. Any tool the Devil uses to achieve this, we must oppose. Often, those that seem most harmless, are also most dangerous. Philosophies that claim god is found within, take His rules and make them mans. It is going to becoming increasingly difficult and at the same time, increasingly important to spread the true Word at whatever cost. Stay strong. Stay in the Word.
