Millions of people believe in some New Age guru and what he writes. Billions believe in other religions or no religious belief at all. However, they are simply hypocrites.
There are many people in, what was once called “the New Age Movement of the 70s.”
There are some people on the internet that are telling people that Christianity is not original and unique but is borrowed from some previous, ancient eastern civilization, such as the Sumerians or Egyptians.
The author makes a claim without any reference sources. If they do give a reference source, it is from another book and this author does not have a reference source – which is no better than the first example.
However, this does not prevent them from following that person.
Not Everyone Who Calls Themselves “A Truth Seeker” Is, Indeed a Truth Seeker
A real “truth seeker” will listen and read what others have to say that is not in agreement with their current beliefs. But there are other “truth seekers” who will not listen to others. They are hypocrites because they complain about those who don’t believe as they do. But when the shoe is on the other foot, they complain.
If you are a Bible believing Christian you might have encountered these people who are closed mind. Yet, these very same people do the same thing – they don’t want to hear it. If you continue to talk, they walk away. Or, they might tell you that you are crazy or stupid.
Have you had this happen to you?
Or, have you done this to others yourself?
Truth need not fear critics. If truth is really truth, it can stand up to critics.
New Agers, pagans or whatever they classify themselves might tell you something like, “I read this article by someone and he wrote about all the contradictions in the Bible. I forgot what they were exactly but it made sense to me. Therefore, I don’t believe in the Bible,” or words to that affect.
Next time you face someone like that, ask them, “Have you read any articles by those who answer the Bible critics?”
And you usually get a blank stare. It’s like you are insulting them to even suggest that someone might have actually answered the critics – point-for-point.
Why is it like this?
Again, the Bible has the answer. Jesus said that not everyone will believe. Not everyone believed Jesus – such as the Scribes and Pharisees.
In the New Testament we are told that some will not take sound doctrine.
Paul tells us that if you go to someone’s house and they don’t believe you “shake the dust from your shoes.”
We also learn, “that many are called but few are chosen.” In other words, they had their chance.
Christ spoke in parables sometimes and when the Apostles asked Him, He said, “It’s not meant for them to know…”
So, if you talk to someone who criticises the Bible and don’t want to hear the answers, it is because it was not meant for them. Leave them alone and go to someone who WILL listen to sound doctrine.
