Potentially Harmful and Dangerous Spiritual Practices from Chris Lawson

I consider all of the "Potentially Harmful and Dangerous Spiritual Practices" practices that I mention (and many more) to have the potential to be spiritually harmful, if not downright exceedingly dangerous.

I am issuing these warnings because many New Age, holistic and spiritual practices we warn about include either one, two, three - or all four of the following components of the occult/psychic worldview:

1) Mystical and supernaturalistic health related methods.

2) Founded on occult principles.

3) Dangerous forms of occult and mystical practices.

4) Based on the writings and beliefs associated with either paganism, spiritism, occultism or mysticism.

The contemplative spirituality catch phrases and practices referred to above are used by Eastern occultists, religious mystics, and many "well-intentioned" Christians.   Almost the enitre list of these practices has been gleaned from Eastern mysticism and the occult - and they have been brought into Christian settings.  Due to the massive explosion of experience driven Christianity and the endorsements of many well known personalities, these practices are now thought by many to actually be "Christian".  

It must be clearly noted however that "Christian mystics" gleaned these practices from Eastern religions - Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism.  (See The Desert Fathers, Fr. Bede Griffiths, Fr. Thomas Keating, Thomas Merton, etc.)  As such, they are "Christianized" forms of non-Christian practices.  Even biblical prayer has been convoluted and re-defined as "centering prayer", the "Jesus prayer", "slow prayer", "mantra prayer", "meditation" (unbiblcal forms), etc.

We make special note of this here because oftentimes the "results" that people experience from these Eastern practices are contrary to biblical theology and balanced Christian practice.  With this in view, it is no wonder that a number of so-called Christian leaders in our age have adopted a pantheistic, occult worldview - in place of a biblical, Christian worldview.  The proof of this can be found in their books and sermons.  The tragic end result of this is that many undiscerning church-goers (and quite a number of true Christians) are now being subjected to and influenced by an unbiblical Christianity.  This new Christianized form of Eastern spirituality is an amalgamation of Eastern occult practices mixed with theologically corrupted biblical terminology.  In theory it has major problems and in practice it can very quickly lead to spiritual delusion.

Another very serious problem that can arise through the use of a number of these practices is direct, overt contact with the spirit world apart from God.  The technique or practice of "Centering prayer" as contemplatives call it, has a very strong potential to introduce well-intentioned people to occult practices such as Clairvoyance, Clairaudience and Clairsentience, etc.  The Bible calls this divination, a form of the occult condemned by God Himself (Deuteronomy 18).  Click here to see many references of the biblical condemnation of divination in any form).  

It is very simple to do the research and find out just where these practices originate from and how they have crept into the church.  Sadly, many refuse to look at the facts!

Source Note:

Many of the topics listed above were found in alternative medicine, new age, and occult sources.  Further helpful documention and topics were found in The Expanded Dictionary of Metaphysical Healthcare , Unnaturalistic Methods: A-Z, 2000 Jack Raso, M.S., R.D.

Subjects listed on this page also come from many other sources such as various Encyclopedias, Dictionaries, Encyclopaedias, Spiritual Dictionaries, New Age Vocabulary Guides, Alternative Health Books, Alternative Medicine Books, Alternative Health Care Journals, Natural Health and Healing magazines, Natural and Occult Medicine Literature, Alternative Remedy Booklets, Alternative Health and Medicine Pamphlets, Alternate Healing Method Books,  Holistic Health Dictionary and Therapy Literature, Alternative Treatment Practices, Complementary Medicine Journals, Alternative Health Dictionaries, Alternative Health, Alternative Medicine Dictionaries, Alternative Health Glossarys, Alternative Medicine Glossary’s, Alternative Health Terms, Alternative Medicine Terms, Alternative Healing Guides, Alternative Medicine Guides, Natural Healing Dictionaries, and a vast array of occult literature.



SRN considers the subjects listed above to be spiritually harmful because they have the potential to engage the practitioner in occult power. A large  number of topics listed above are known to be very, very dangerous. 

A strong warning is advised to all who would involve themselves with practices that originate within the realm of New Age, occult, and spiritistic practices.  All occult methods have the capabilitiy of leading to serious physical, spiritual, and personal bodliy harm.  We state this because all of the practices above are in some way, shape or form connected to a pantheistic (or panentheistic) worldview, which is the root of Eastern spirituallity and the world of the occult.

Many individuals who delve into New Age and occult practices have suffered the consequences of spiritual oppression, occult bondage, psychological delusion, insanity, irreversible mental and physical damage, insanity, suicidal tendencies, possession states, moral degredation, sexual perversion, fatal accidents, and more.

For those who are presently involved in any form of occultism or in any practices founded upon the principles of the occult, we recommend that you fully repent of this sin and in complete willfull submission to the Lord Jesus Christ, call upon Him to free you from all demonic influences. Occult bondage is too strong to break free from through any other means...Jesus Christ is the only answer!

The Bible is clear regarding all forms of occultism - it is dangerous at best, and can damn the soul at worst.  For those who do not know, 'enrgy work', Reiki, channeling, yoga kundalini energy, spiritual intuitives, etc. are all forms of "divination" and mediumship in varying degrees.  No matter how the world of the occult is repackaged and introduced into Western civilization, God's view on the subject remains the same - it is an abomination with severe consequences:

When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.  There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.  Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.  For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.  Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God.  For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, the LORD thy God hath not suffered thee so to do.  The LORD thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet [prophetic of Jesus Christ ] from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken.  (Deuteronomy 18:9-15)

Notice the last line here...

But as for you, the LORD your God has not permitted you to do so.

The warning of 3,400 years ago still stands today!

We issue our warning because we believe (and so do others) that involvement with these practices, including dabbling in them at beginner levels and the promotion of them to any degree, has the potential to incur harmful and dangerous influences upon oneself and upon one's family. 

We believe these dangers arise from trafficking with unseen hostile spirit beings that have the ability to counterfeit themselves and masquerade as "results" in the lives of the pratitioners and their clients. Making a businees out of contactingthe spirit world, through any of the endless means of occult methodology is no safe trade.

    Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth,
    that shall he also reap.  (Galatians 6:7)

Freedom and Salvation From Occult Powers and Spiritual Bondage TODAY!


Durham Castle is where this original medieval folklore/occult type door knocker (image below) is located - on Durham Castle's cathedral sanctuary door. Durham Castle is also where Harry Potter was filmed. Wikipedia states:


The Sanctuary Knocker or hagoday is an ornamental knocker on the door of a cathedral. Under medieval English common law, these instruments supposedly afforded the right of asylum to anybody who touched them. Examples of Sanctuary Knockers can be found on Durham Cathedral, the St. Nicholas church in Gloucester and the Church of the Holy Trinity, Stratford-upon-Avon. By 1623, the laws permitting church sanctuary had been overturned by parliament." (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sanctuary_Knocker)

Image: Durham Castle Cathedral - Sanctuary Door knocker (Hagoday)

Just because people during the medieval period were invited to Churches or cathedrals where this door knocker could provide assylum, it does not necessarily mean that they always received assylum and protection. Yes churches are supposed to provide safety, but like this image, what many churches provide is simply terrifying.

This "church sanctuary" door knocker (hagoday) is very similar to much imagery found in occult religions, such as the Sri Lanken Devil bird, Indonesian black magic masks, Occult Owl symbology, terrifying Hindu deities,  much imagery that represents forms of divination that entail observing the flight of birds' songs, cries and behavior (Ornithomancy, Ornithomancy, Oinoscopy, Orniscoly, Oinoscopia).

It should be noted that many people in our day assume that if something is spiritual and "it works" than "it must be of God." In many cases nothing could be further from the truth. Many of the practices listed in this article are being utilized by well meaning churches, movements and individuals, but they are clearly not given by God, nor endorsed by Him.
