Plan" Teaches That Man, Through Spiritual Illumination, Realizes the
Divine Nature Within Him!
indented section is another segment of the "gospel"
presentation that used to be on the official Left Behind
"He was not a mere man who through spiritual illumination
realized his full spiritual potential and the divine nature within him. Nor is
he merely an example of the potential that is within each one of us."

The statement above is from THE
PLAN, the name of the gospel presentation that was on the Left Behind
website before this critique appeared on the internet. This "gospel presentation" is for the readers of the
Left Behind series and is supposed to lead them to "Christ." New Age
teachings do not lead one to the Lord Jesus Christ.
Jesus was not a mere man who
through spiritual illumination realized. . . Stop right there. The rest of
the sentence asserts what the people at leftbehind.com want people to think what a mere man (you and I) will
realize through spiritual illumination. Mere men (and women) will realize
their full spiritual potential and the divine nature within them. Please
notice the furtive, round-about way they are sneaking this New Age gospel into
your mind. They are not coming right out and wording it directly. Instead, they are artfully sliding this teaching in by speaking of
Jesus not being a mere man who. . . and then they tell you what a mere man
realizes through spiritual illumination: he will realize the divine nature
within him! They use subliminal writing methods in order to cause the reader to swallow this
false, New Age doctrine without objection because they referenced Jesus first
and so it seems as if the remainder of the sentence
is about his divine nature within him (Jesus). Unless you examine this
sentence carefully you will not notice that they are talking about a man
realizing the divine nature within him. This sentence is cleverly constructed and
tricks the reader into receiving New Age teachings into his or her mind.
The authors use the next sentence
to further drive this New Age point home:
"Nor is he merely an
example of the potential that is within each one of us."

This sly wording again is intended
you off guard. Saying that Jesus is not merely an example is saying that
Jesus IS an example of this, but this is not all that Jesus is an example
of. According to The Plan what is Jesus an example of? "The potential that is within each
one of us."
Jesus is all man and all God. How can he be an example of
the potential that is within us? Jesus is God, and as such, has unlimited
potential. If the Lord Jesus is an example of the potential that is within each one
of us, then that means we are divine as well.
This is New Age evangelism.
"The Plan" also has some biblical aspects to it, but in no way does
that excuse the New Age teachings (no matter how well-disguised) sprinkled
Are New Age teachings in the Left
Behind series? Yes! Are they blatant? Yes, at times, but they
are also subtly interjected in the text which makes them all the more dangerous because they program the trusting Christian
reader's mind with New Age thought without his or her even being aware of it. God's
Wrath on Left Behind exposes the New Age, antichrist agenda of the Left
Age Gospel of Left Behind
