Spiritual Disciplines

Posted by susanb99 on August 23, 2007

August 23, 2007 — This week’s Ministry Toolbox newsletter includes a quote from the book The Present Future by Reggie McNeal. Here’s the quote:

We cannot take the approach that we just need to teach people the classic spiritual disciplines, assuming that a person already has a developed center. We must use spiritual disciplines to help people form the center.

“form the center” – what does that mean? The next sentence, from page 77 of the book (which was not included in the newsletter), continues as follows:

We must attend to their self-awareness and life relationships.

By being attentive to a person’s “self”, the “center” of a person can be formed. The focus or center of a person becomes “self”. The Bible teaches the opposite. God is not only the Creator of all things, He is sovereign and omniscient, the focus and center of a Christian’s life. By forming a “center” using spiritual disciplines, a person is placing him/herself on a level with God or higher than God. The very nature of this idea is anti-biblical, anti-Christ.

This is an occult/New Age teaching – humans are gods, we just need to develop and become aware of our “center” (higher self) to attain godhood and develop “The Christ”, a cosmos christ that has been embodied in prophets/masters/teachers for centuries, including Jesus Christ. New Age philosophy teaches that Jesus Christ is not Christ, He only HAD “the christ” in Him. Christians know this is untrue, is blatantly unbiblical. But Rick Warren doesn’t have any problem promoting such a heresy. He will “work with anybody”, and it seems, QUOTE anybody as long as it suits his purposes.

Be very wary of anyone who promotes and advocates such an anti-Christ philosophy.
