Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
At the time he wrote this 1990 book, Ralph Rath was "managing editor of 'AD 2000 Together," a magazine for worldwide interdenominational evangelism." He is also the author of God Is at Work in You: A Practical Guide to Growth in the Spirit.

He wrote in the Introduction, "There is good news and bad news regarding the New Age movement. The good news is that New Agers are hungry for religious experience and searching for a deeper meaning in life. The bad news is that they are coming up with the wrong answers... New Agers are putting themselves under the influence of demonic spirits. They are in sad, sad shape... The New Age is not the true religion, but it sometimes seems very close to the true faith... The New Age is energized by powerful demonic spirits."

Interestingly, he does not endorse the position of Constance Cumbey (in her books Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow: The New Age Movement and Our Coming Age of Barbarism and A Planned Deception The Staging of a New Age "Messiah"), and writes, "A modicum of common sense can show a perceptive Christian that Cumbey's basic thesis is false. The New Age movement is definitely not well organized. Almost every leading figure is a thorough individualist. Nobody is following orders. Everybody is doing his or her own thing. Even people who believe in Ascended Masters or the Spiritual Hierarchy have differing ideas about who these entities are and who their favorite earthly disciples are." (Pg. 113)
