New Age occultists always pull up the same few verses.


The truth of what I shared earlier holds. If there be no truth, value or meaning in such sharings, those parts will evaporate like mist in the noon-day sun. But what is of eternal value and meaning maintains.

Truth, wisdom, light is universal by nature.

'God' is LIGHT.

Divine Science is simply the recognition of the fundamental reality of 'Spirit', and a system of principles that coordinate with that universal knowledge and knowing. Since it is 'knowledge', it is foundational to its own reality and is concordant with the laws and principles that inhere within it and are behind its law of expression, the pattern and movement of creation. 'Knowledge' is key to all that exists, so 'science' is at the heart of existence, it is intrinsic to creation.

-------

"The kingdom of heaven is within you"

"To be spiritually minded is life and peace"

"Even now you are sons of God"

"you are the light of the world"

"you are the temple of God"

---------

'New Age' is just a descriptive term, that can apply to any view, school or context. Plenty of Bible verses speak of a 'new age' to come, so with right knowledge and understanding, there is nothing to fear about the term, despite typical polemics and christian apologetics disparaging it. Divine truth, knowledge and wisdom is timeless really, although some aspects of its revelation unfold through dispensations.

'Occult' knowledge also is just knowledge that is hidden, secret or 'apocryphal'....it is of mystery, shrouded, and available to those who devote time and study to discover the deeper esoteric truths, precepts and principles. The Bible and other religious books are full of 'occult' symbols, terms and allegorical descriptions.

Yes and it all goes back to the fallen angels teaching mankind forbidden knowledge, black magic, incantations and spells along with many other evil and harmful things. Worshiping Lucifer is a tell tale sign and you have mentioned Blavatsky and Crowley I believe and perhaps you study them and adhere to their teachings. The whole concept leads AWAY from God and to selfish desires and thoughts.

I think divine science utilizes hallucinogens and worships Lucifer while studying Blavatsky and other mystical occult material. Very dangerous indeed.


Divine Science, the New Thought school in particular shared here in the OP and thru-out, does not promote drug use, neither the worship of the traditional idea/concept of 'Lucifer',...neither is it associated with Blavatsky and any theosophical school, except having a similar emphasis in its study of universal esoteric truths and principles that are consonant within most all religious traditions.

Science is universal, and only particular within a given field of study, however thats qualified.

Ample links were given and a general description of what DS (Divine Science) is and teaches, while the broader extent and spectrum of knowledge of God (divine knowledge as a whole) encompasses all that exists. Therefore a misrepresentation of the New Thought school of DS would be ignoble, as well as the presumptions of 'luciferian' worship to Theosophy, a common misconception among those buying a sanitized version of 'Christianity' icognizant of its own adaptations of older pagan myths and metaphors.

You would be well aware of our commentary on the 'Satan/Lucifer' connection in other threads and forums, showing that 'Satan' and 'Lucifer' are not necessarily the same personality, and that 'Lucifer' as the 'Morning Star' or 'Venus' has no satanic connotations or associations whatsoever but what was applied to it by 'legend', 'mythology' and 'tradition'. There is much deeper knowledge of the occult meanings and correlaries here, but 'Lucifer' as the 'Light-bearer' as a symbol is most positive and enlightening, while even Jesus promises those who overcome the 'morning star'! If 'God' is LIGHT, and he gives light for a soul to 'bear' or to 'shine forth',..then 'God' is the source, substance of knowledge. 'God' is the also LIFE. - both trees in the Garden have their place....Spirit-life....and...'discerning knowledge'. But that would take a deeper look into the metaphors at play.

We would remind again,....The founding truth of Divine Science is -

God is all, both invisible and visible.
One Presence, One Mind, One Power is all.
This One that is all is perfect life, perfect love, and perfect substance.
Man is the individualized expression of God and
is ever one with this perfect life, perfect love, and perfect substance.

The whole concept leads AWAY from God and to selfish desires and thoughts.

I disagree. Neither DS or Theosophy teaches or endorses black magick! Quite the opposite, since its path is emphatically love and wisdom oriented, for the higher good and unfolding of divine potential in man. It appears you need to do more research about 'Lucifer',...we've covered that in other threads.  Since 'God' is the source of all life, light, knowledge, truth, wisdom....the path Godward towards Source is the WAY. - different schools, paths and traditions may differ in their approach, methodology, ritual, mythos and nomenclature...but the path towards life is always love, light, truth and LIFE oriented. This very light and life is in the very heart and soul of man, since man is the temple of God. - from that seed of life and immortality, the Christ within....all the potentials and possibilities of life spring, unto infinity.

I've found a study in theosophical texts and divine science ones draw the soul Godward, not towards selfish desires or SIN. - the whole emphasis of the study of divine knowledge and wisdom, is 'God-oriented' and 'Christ-centered', since 'God' alone is light, knowledge and LIFE. - anything deviating from God (divine love, light, truth, knowledge, wisdom) is 'sin', and the path of disintegration, death, oblivion, non-existence, error. So, its a matter of understanding here, and applying our insight and perception within their appropriate contexts.

Thats interesting and surprising to a degree, but I'll be optimist in your analysis of the insights shared, and maybe they will inspire you to consider all my commentary on the subject at hand :)

I personally have never been drawn to Scientology or any of its teachings or sentiments, mind-programming or training protocols. As far as if it is really benefitting its members and those who apply its teachings will be a subjective matter, unless a true assessment can be had of its objective of the true help and happiness of its adherents. Its cultic tendencies of a more negative nature may be notable, but even more conservative religious sects can have such tendencies within their 'organization' and its 'culturing' effect.

So, I dont have a more informed opinion about it at this time. DS (Divine Science) is quite different being an older vintage sect within the New Thought Movement, with more of kinship with Christian Science as for as its metaphysical teachings go, while Scientology seems to have grown into its own unique church-like organization, image and 'brand' so to speak. - a fusion of Hubbard's sci-fi psychology and what he blended into that as 'mind-programming' for human betterment, a kind of psi-humanism for a new-age of human enlightenment.

Different viewpoints may unfold with further research. But we'd like to keep within the context of New Thought teachings and its interpretation of traditional christian theology. Is there any particular points which prompted your inquiry?

Yes, once you get into researching these organizations, it is 'mind blowing' at the lengths Satan has gone to remove God from the people of Earth.

Its cultic tendencies of a more negative nature may be notable, but even more conservative religious sects can have such tendencies within their 'organization' and its 'culturing' effect.

So, I dont have a more informed opinion about it at this time. DS (Divine Science) is quite different being an older vintage sect within the New Thought Movement, with more of kinship with Christian Science as for as its metaphysical teachings go, while Scientology seems to have grown into its own unique church-like organization, image and 'brand' so to speak. - a fusion of Hubbard's sci-fi psychology and what he blended into that as 'mind-programming' for human betterment, a kind of psi-humanism for a new-age of human enlightenment.

Different viewpoints may unfold with further research. But we'd like to keep within the context of New Thought teachings and its interpretation of traditional christian theology. Is there any particular points which prompted your inquiry?

Yes, once you get into researching these organizations, it is 'mind blowing' at the lengths Satan has gone to remove God from the people of Earth.

Well, in New Thought and Divine Science you could not get rid of 'God', since 'God' is the one and only universal power and presence :)

Now one can debate what or who 'God' is, and put qualifications, definitions and descriptions on 'God',...and thats what some religious folks do :)

Since from a DS view, as I'll approach it in this thread and in metaphysics in general,...there is no other power or presence but 'God'! - so....in the light of omnipresence, you can never be absent of the absolute reality at the heart of all existence, so 'God' is always ever present, no matter what man believes of thinks about 'God', because 'God' is the foundational reality in every moment of existence,....and is truly INFINITE. If so, then there can never be any riddance of 'God' :)

God NOW..... is ALL that IS.

Hi,

This is nothing more than form of Gnosticism and new age thought which the apostle John fought to stamp out of the Church.  The only purpose for posting it would be to proselytize seeing that one would have to change allegiances from the plain word of God to the slippery machinations of man made philosophies.

In other words, if we are working off of two different source authorities we can't have meaningful dialog.  If you agreed that the bible had infallible authority and I also agreed, then we could discuss New Thought (which isn't new at all) with a reference point.  Or If I were to abandon my beliefs in the infallibility of the scriptures then we might also be able to discuss.  But as it is, we are at an impasse since the scriptures clearly warn against this type of human wisdom.

Regards,
