The New Age Gospel of Left Behind

Left Behind "Gospel" Says Jesus Came Back From the Dead to Tell Us What is on the "Other Side"! 

The following indented section is another segment of the "gospel" presentation that used to be on the official Left Behind website.

The Plan

Jesus then rose from the dead on Easter morning proving that he is God as well as our savior from sin, just as he claimed. This also means that we know as a fact that death is not the end. There is life after death. We have no need to rely on psychics or metaphysics or people who have had near death experiences to tell us what is on the other side. Jesus Christ died and came back to tell us about it. This same Jesus who is with us as we go through death. We do not go alone nor is death an uncharted course.

(Quote source: The Plan from

The Lord Jesus Christ preached many times that death is not the end: "And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal." (Matthew 25:46)  He definitely knew all about what is "on the other side" and did not come back for the purpose of telling us about it!

Why did the Lord Jesus Christ rise from the dead?  Since the doctrine of the resurrection is one of the most fundamental doctrines of Christianity, it is important to be accurate about this.  Because salvation and justification is dependent upon what we believe concerning Jesus and his resurrection, then it is unconscionable to give the false reason given in this bogus, New Age "gospel" message.  "Jesus Christ was raised up again for our justification" (See Romans 4:24)  If we confess with our mouth and believe in our heart that God raised him from the dead, we will be saved.  Yes, we must believe Jesus was raised bodily from the grave, not just spiritually.  The Plan does not mention that his resurrection was a physical one, or that he ascended to heaven to sit down at the right hand of the Father in glory.  (Luke 22:69)

The fact that the Lord Jesus Christ rose bodily from the dead testifies that our faith is not vain... that his blood sacrifice is sufficient, our sins are forgiven, and because he rose from the dead, we know we shall be raised from the dead as well. (See 1 Cor. 15:12)

Jesus rose physically from the dead and proved his own words: "All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth!" (1 Pet. 3:22)  Jesus has all power and ascended to heaven and is now seated at the right hand of the Father! 

To teach that the Lord Jesus Christ died and came back from the dead in order to tell us what is on the "other side," is untrue and not found in the Holy Bible. Furthermore, "the other side" is New Age jargon. Jesus Christ is the Word, and he was in the beginning! "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God." He certainly did not need to die to tell out what was on the "other side" when he was there in the beginning with God and is God!  

Furthermore, the phrase, "the other side" is a New Age, occultic phrase.   Sylvia Browne wrote a book called The Other Side & Back: A Psychic's Guide to Our World & Beyond. Isn't it interesting that the author of The Plan made certain to mention that we have no need to  rely on psychics and metaphysics to tell us what is on the "other side." It is telling that he did not mention that to consult diviners is to sin against God!

There are many phrases in The Plan that reduce the Lord Jesus Christ to being a mere man even though in other places they state that he is God. You will see this clever "leavening" process throughout The Plan. Two or three true statements will be made, and then they will be nullified by the next statement.  No matter how much truth is presented, the lies leaven it and ruin the truth that is presented. (This is an example of Christian/New Age syncretism.)

Let us continue with this analysis:  

"We have no need to rely on psychics or metaphysics or people who have had near death experiences to tell us what is on the other side." 

Notice the manipulative wording: We have no need to rely on psychics or metaphysics to tell us what is on the other side?

There is the implication here that psychics and metaphysics are legitimate ways to obtain this information. The Bible is explicit in its warnings to those who consort with occultists for any reason! (See 2 Kings 21:6, 23:24, Lev. 19:31, 20:6, Rev. 22:15, 21:8, Mal. 3:5 )

Saying there is "no need to rely on psychics or metaphysics" is an outright snare for the reader, because no warning is given that those who consult psychics are guilty of the serious sin of consorting with devils! 

And to make matters worse, the author(s) are saying there is no need to consult those connected with the demonic realm because Jesus took care of finding out what was "on the other side" himself. Jesus found out what was on the other side so we do not need to consult occultists to find out? This is closely associating what occultists try to do (which is abominable sin in the sight of God) with what they say Jesus' purpose was in rising from the dead!

This Plan presents a New Age "Christ," not the Lord Jesus Christ of the Holy Bible--of whom there is no other name under heaven whereby we may be saved.
