Session 11 - Warren Smith

Keep in mind...these are just my raw notes

  • Part of our armor is not being ignorant of the enemy's devices

  • N.A. no longer referring to themselves as the "New Age"

    • Instead: the "New Spirituality"

    • ...the "Alternative Spirituality"

  • Eph. 5:12-13

  • "Take heed unto yourselves and unto the flock"

  • M. Scot Peck ( I do remember him...)

  • Problem of "contemplative prayer": no warnings about testing the spirits

  • Warren's encouragement: be careful

  • "The ECM seems to think it has a handle on helping people."

  • Stereotype of Bible-believers: 'oh, I'm just waiting for Armageddon to come."

  • For antichrist to have credibility, he would need to have a lot of people calling themselves Christians giving him credibility

  • Tony Jones calls Mat. 24 Jesus' "harrangue"

  • It all comes down to the Cross of Calvary

  • Acts 16:16 - there are divining spirits

  • "It was like a 'reverse sinner's prayer'."

  • "It was meant to be - but meant to be by whom...?"

  • Is the devil entirely predictable?

  • There is coming a false world peace (true, dat)

  • "Atonement" in the N.A. is the realization that I am a part of God

  • "We have an adversary - let's make sure he doesn't get in."

  • N.A. is saying if you don't recognize your own divinity, you're a hindrance.

  • ECM - "We have a hope-filled eschatology!"

    • ...well whoopdie-do. (I really liked that, to be honest.)

  • "There is no more effective method of concealment than publishing it (what you want to
    conceal) openly."

  • A Return To Love - really first book in Oprah's book club

  • "Self-centeredness" in the N.A. is in not recognizing you're God.

    • Oneness vs. Separation

    • "Separation" is when you don't believe in your own divinity.

  • The Aquarian Conspiracy - (I remember that book)

  • Teilhard deChardin

  • Eric Butterworth: The Power Within You.

  • Warren believes Oprah has a zeal for God (directly implying she's not evil), but according
    to her own wisdom.

  • There's a lot of N.A.'ers who used to be evangelical Christians

  • The Beautiful Side Of Evil

  • Alice Bailey - Emergence, used over 1000 times
