— 9, 2010 THE QUANTUM SHIFT PAGANISM — Reimagining God

E. McCracken Israel My Glory 2010)

The West is a magnet for people -professionals who, for one or another, choose to reside the deer and the antelope play. I don’t have statistics, it like our town in 1991 had than its share of the best, classically trained musicians. And generously shared their in a wide variety of venues, a pipe organ workshop gave young keyboard the opportunity to play instruments in throughout the community.

When my and young son returned from a I was prepared for a lengthy recitation on the of pipe organs. Instead I a description of a church poster read, Love Your and bore a picture of goddess holding the world.

I don’t how many people understood the embedded in that poster then, but today Christians are up to find their church’s has been hijacked by a vocal promoting paganism.


Defining modern is like trying to nail to the wall. Pagans describe worldview as pragmatic, self-reliant, ever-evolving, tolerant, and open-minded. Yet have certain core which writer Carl loosely defined with the People Adoring Goddess And

The term pagan literally country dweller- and originated Christianity became the official religion after the conversion of Emperor Constantine in the fourth Whereas the cultural centers of the day fashionably Christian, rural retained their polytheistic and religious practices; and they synonymous with the word

The stereotypical image most have of paganism isn’t accurate. Paganism views as a unified, all-encompassing whole; and is essential to its belief system. see nature as having polarity of dark and light, active and male and female. As one practitioner Because we see nature as the divine, we see our divine force as having two and ferninine-God and Goddess.’ Sometimes as the yin and yang, god and goddess represent the polar opposites of the unified

Monism describes this in which all matter ultimately from or reduces to the same or principle of being. Dualism, on the hand, describes the Judeo-Christian that recognizes God as distinct His creation. Merlin Stone, of When God Was a Woman, explained, The is located within each and all things in nature. The Judeo-Christian however, is transcendent.

Pagans the earth as a living, breathing that is the source of all life. Gaia, sometimes referred to as Earth or Mother Nature, is portrayed with Earth’s as her womb because she is considered for bringing all life into Since pagans venerate the they see time spent as communion with goddess.

If you think this information has think again. A monistic of the cosmos is impacting the professing via environmental concerns. Well-known and New York City clergyman Parks Morton, an avid declared, We are increasingly being to realize that the body of is the earth-the biosphere-the skin includes all of us. And Richard Austin, a Presbyterian Church USA (PCUSA) who addressed the EarthCare ’96 declared, Christ is fully God and Earth. He came to save the I hear the Bible calling us to from destruction the Creation.


New (formerly New Age) groups what they call The a quantum leap in planetary in 2012 that will in a unified planet functioning in harmony. Unfortunately, many Christian leaders visualize the thing.

On the secular side, Arguelles, instigator of the Harmonic peace initiative in 1987, It is time for all who are willing to unconditionally the new to become conscious players in the myth. all we need is one unifying event—an artistic whole—that and synchronizes us in affirmation of our highest The Shift, he said, will set the for a sequence in our evolution as distinct the cycle of history as the rise of life was distinct from in caves.

Participation in this quantum leap requires all to be on the same page spiritually, and the key to alignment is the concept of myth. The beliefs within paganism are through myth rather doctrinal declaration. Pagans use a approach that teaches story-telling. It is not necessary to believe the as literal truth, but only as a presentation of subjective truth. If the of the world’s religions can be synchronized, myth will bind all together.

Interestingly, popular leaders also envision a shift in professing Christianity, the faith requires a time of rethinking, re-imagining and re-envisioning. An called Deep Shift to provide support as leaders through their own personal and guide their organizations the transition and transformation necessary to their people in working for the of the world in our culture today.

Dowd, ordained United of Christ minister and author of God for Evolution, declared, We are on the verge of the spiritual awakening in history. It is possible that our own paradigm seeing nature as an artifact, to Nature [sic] as the primary of divinity (and inseparable that divinity) -will over the course of decades than centuries.

In fact, Dowd and others him suggest putting an evolutionary on aspects of the book of Genesis to that story, making it and instructive not just for Peoples of the but also for peoples of other and of no religious tradition.

Coining a new to replace myth, well-known church leader Brian in his book Everything Must claims Christianity’s framing desperately needs a radical Falling for the postmodern tale truth is dynamic and everchanging in to stay relevant, these view doctrine as unnecessary. Christian leader stated, We growth and learning, not dogma and McLaren declared, With no to Martin Luther, John or modern evangelicalism, Jesus (in 16:19) does not prescribe to those who refuse to accept the of justification by grace through Rather, hell — or figurative — is for the rich and who proceed on their way without for their poor neighbor day day.

Deconstructing the biblical of salvation using an isolated of text is not unusual for these According to McLaren, The core of Jesus focused on personal, and global transformation in this and apparently has little to do with through faith in the personal of Christ as the only sacrifice God accept for sin. Shockingly, Christian writer declared, The fixation on the death of Jesus as the saving act must end, and the of the cross must be reimagined in faith. Why? Because of the of suffering and the vindictive God behind it.

Using double entendre and vague language, many a hidden form of pluralism is typical of paganism. Reflecting attitude are people who refer to as following God in the way of Jesus. The subtle is that all religions point to God; Christianity just to be the Jesus way. They Evangelism or mission for me is no longer persuading people to believe I believe, no matter how edgy or I get. It is more about experiences and encounters. It is about the journey of life and faith each distinct to his or her own tradition and but with the possibility of encountering God and from one another.

Another For me the beginning of sharing my faith people began with out Christianity and embracing Christian a nonpolitical mysterious system can be experienced but not explained. Sharing a you can’t explain seems but the idea certainly fits a philosophy where individualism, and pluralism define the tenets of beliefs.

The carefully worded, message is that people can to God any way they choose. To quote Dowd, If you are wholeheartedly committed to in deep integrity and have no no guilt, no shame, no regrets, and no business, you are saved no matter your religion or philosophy.

the current move toward within professing Christianity through mainline denominations, are voices within these who recognize the implications. Sylvia of the PCUSA warned that beliefs are growing within the of mainline denominations. Diane L. late president of the Institute on and Democracy, lamented, The movement influential in the mainline denominations as the of feminist theology, the most trend on seminary campuses

They and others like understand that if the professing allows a pagan worldview to the core elements of Christianity, it certainly mean a deep not only for the church, but for the world.


Although some attribute the pagan worldview to the Cultural of the 1960s and early ’70s, the church actually shifted paganism in 1993 with the and now-infamous feminist Re-Imagining in Minnesota. Promoted by mainline under the auspices of the World of Churches’ Decade of Solidarity Women, the conference pushed an well beyond the limits of women’s issues.

As each of the 34 took the podium, more 2,000 women chanted, Sophia, dream the vision, the wisdom dwelling deep Throughout the conference they 0 great spirit, earth and and sea, you are inside and all around me. (A in the 1998 conference program I FOUND GOD IN MYSELF, AND I LOVED I LOVED HER FIERCELY.)

Among the was Chung Hyun Kyung, professor of ecumenical studies at Theological Seminary in New York She presented God as an all-encompassing energy uniting and permeating all that She encouraged pranic healing, or into cosmic energy. life-giving energy came god [sic] and it is everywhere, she said. it is in the sun and in the it is from the ground and it is from the

Consistent with a blatant agenda, everyone in the assembly was to affirm her godhood by placing a red dot on her to signify the divine presence, alienating all who would not comply. The of the conference featured a pseudo of bread and milk mixed honey offered to the goddess

This mockery of orthodox was topped 10 years later at the reunion in 2003. That climaxed with a celebration of the Supper in which the women bit the sacramental apple, mimicking sampling of the forbidden fruit and it an act that brought enlightenment than man’s Fall. view is reminiscent of Gnosticism and has implications.

Interestingly, the popular novel The by William Paul Young a fictitious conversation in which tells the main character, is a personification of Papa’s [God’s] Referring to Sophia as the wisdom in Proverbs 3 is a clever twist makes it sound as though were a hidden biblical much as the Gnostics did.

Coupling the word a feminine definite article is a Hebrew literary tool the value of wisdom.
