Protecting our children from spiritual deception can seem a daunting task but How to Protect Your Child from the New Age & Spiritual Deception offers hope with practical steps Christian parents can take to become proactive in recognizing the dangers their children face while also teaching them to discern biblical truth. Berit Kjos has done her homework and documents how children and teens are being targeted with New Age and occultic messages through every form of media and in school curriculum and programs.

Some of the influence is attractively packaged in the form of a heroic young wizard, magical cats and ponies, powerful ninja warriors combating evil, cool anime characters, and vampire lovers. Other not so obvious messages come in the form of nature worship or Eastern religion type meditation disguised in schools as a quiet time of “mindfulness,” “centering,” or “visualization.”

Most surprising to me was that the Girl Scouts of America are on board as they now discourage the use of Christian emphasis in meetings but promote New Age spirituality in the form of yoga and meditation. The 2010 GSA brochure for their National Council Sessions stated, “Channel your inner-being. Be one with your mind, body and soul. Yoga for everyone!” (p.252) Kjos also documents that GSA has partnered with the Ashland Institute whose “Coming Into Your Own” program’s aim is to “create a team of adult champions who will model a search for integrated leadership that springs from a deep sense of self-knowledge.” The Ashland Institute also teaches a form of metaphysical energy healing described as “creative energy practice” which “deepens connection with the Source of Life” and the group is also partnered with The Fetzer Institute which offers a broad assortment of mystical, New Age/New Spirituality resources.

Exposes the assault on Christianity and the global plan to transform society through the minds of our children

TEMPTING VOICES BECKON to children everywhere. Schools, movies, music, and books all sound the call: “Come, dream, trust Self, you are divine, create your own reality, build a new world. Anything goes, for sin and guilt exist only in the minds of the antiquated ‘religious.’”

“Unlearning the old ways” is key to this global transformation. Today’s assault on biblical Christianity is fast undermining God’s moral and spiritual boundaries. It invites chaos rather than unity—coercion instead of freedom—war and violence instead of peace—and ultimately overtakes today’s children with the plan to turn them into “progressive” transformation leaders of tomorrow.

How can we equip our children so they do not become spiritually deceived and fall into this world-wide agenda? And how can we teach them to have the courage to say no to seductive enticements? There is an answer! We can teach our children to know Truth, so they will discern the counterfeit. And we can teach them how to spot the New Age/New Spirituality and to understand the serious implications that occur when it is embraced.

Author Bio: Berit Kjos is a respected researcher, the author of many books and magazine articles, and a concerned parent (and grandparent) who has extensively studied religious trends, today’s social changes, the roots and branches of the United Nations, the rising worldwide management system, and—most alarming of all—the transformation of the church. Berit first became aware of New Age and occult influences in our society at a 1974 conference on holistic health. As a registered nurse, she was interested in methods of healing but soon discovered that the occult powers found in New Age methods brought bondage instead of true healing.
