Alice Bailey (1880-1949)
Alice Bailey wrote 24 books totaling thousands of pages, books she claimed to have written under the direction of a spirit guide called Djwhal Klul or the Tibetan. But to be clear: I believe Bailey was communicating with a demon, a practice strictly forbidden in the Bible. As we will examine in detail later, many churches today practice contemplative prayer (Christian code word for transcendental meditation) in hopes of hearing from God. There are many reasons I believe they are hearing from the demonic spirit world. For starters, God only speaks to us today through His Word. He does not use occult practices to communicate with His people.
The Tibetan made a number of provocative claims about the future:
This coming age will be as predominantly the age of group interplay, group idealism and group consciousness…for the will of the individual will voluntarily be blended into group will.
The future, in other words, will be about socialism—collectivism or group-thinking—not individualism or dissent. Group-think, collectivism, and group consensus is now deliberately used in many mainline and “evangelical” churches to emotionally manipulate church members to conform to the desired goals and philosophies of church leaders. This process is also used by neo-evangelicals and the New Religious Right to silence those who do not agree with their brand of “Christian” activism and compromise of biblical truth.
Bailey and her demon predicted that the future and new order will be about pluralism (the belief that all religions are equal) and universalism (the belief that all roads lead to God):
I refer to that period which will surely come in which an Enlightened People will rule; these people will not tolerate authoritarianism in any church…they will not accept or permit the rule of any body of men who undertake to tell them what they must believe in order to be saved….
Most people know pluralism is promoted by the religious left but few realize that, whether knowingly or unknowingly, many within evangelicalism and the New Religious Right promote pluralism through political and spiritual ecumenical initiatives. Numerous members of the New Religious Right refuse to publicly refute the false Jesus and false gospel of Mormonism and the Catholic Church because to do so would cost them financial contributions and destroy their political coalitions. Some neo-evangelical and NRR leaders openly proclaim that those that follow the Jesus of Mormonism or the Jesus of the Church of Rome are following the same Jesus of the Bible. I will explain later why this is not only false but how the Bible warns Christians not to follow another Jesus or to accept another gospel.
Alice Bailey did not hide the fact that her worldview was founded in occultism, and she predicted that future churches—even those that once rejected her worldview—would eagerly accept it in order to attract the masses. Within a generation, countless American churches have wandered from defending a biblical worldview to teaching that the Word of God is subjective, that all roads lead to God, and that mysticism and pagan spirituality should be embraced to further one’s religious experiences. If that sounds “seeker sensitive,” it is. It’s all part of the quest for a spiritual salve to dull the ache in the human soul. Bailey saw it coming (perhaps because her demonic guides had it planned all along?):
It can be expected that the orthodox Christian will at first reject the theories about the Christ which occultism presents; at the same time, this same orthodox Christian will find it increasingly difficult to induce the intelligent masses of people to accept the impossible Deity and the feeble Christ which historical Christianity has endorsed.
The occult and mysticism have gone mainstream within evangelicalism thanks to the teachings of people like Joel Osteen, John Hagee, Kenneth Copeland, Rick Warren, and Robert Schuller. The occult has also infiltrated evangelicalism as neo-evangelicals and leaders of the New Religious Right have publicly entered into spiritual enterprises with some of the pastors I have just mentioned as well as members of the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR). The NAR is nothing less than occultism wrapped in Christian language. A false dominant church is being built through a religious Trojan horse, and some of its designers have been influenced directly or indirectly by Alice Bailey.
