Steven Bancarz was steeped in the occult for several years before turning to Christ last September and is now on a mission to debunk claims the New Age movement makes about Jesus.
Bancarz shared his journey of how he got involved in such spiritual darkness, his success running a New Age website, and how God delivered him from the New Age movement, during an interview with The Christian Post last week. His new website, Exposing The New Age, is a Christian apologetics resource specifically aimed at derailing the deception of the occult and addresses false claims made about Jesus.
In a follow-up interview with CP, Bancarz was asked to address a particular New Age myth known as "Christ Copiousness" — the belief that human beings can in a way become Christ, and that Christ is a state of consciousness. more >>

The famous atheist admitted that he would use such techniques to help him out in a number of areas in his life, such as losing weight. more >>
Christians should be part of a "church family" and not try to live spiritually on their own, says Saddleback Church senior pastor and best-selling author Rick Warren.
In his Daily Hope devotional on Monday, the megachurch pastor stressed that being part of a church family is essential to fulfilling God's purposes for one's life.
"You cannot fulfill the five purposes (worship, fellowship, discipleship, ministry, evangelism) on your own. Life is not a solo act. You were created for community," wrote Warren. more >>
Pastor Robert Jeffress of the First Baptist Church in Dallas has warned that conservative Christians can expect zero tolerance in a Hillary Clinton administration should she be elected president, given her recent remarks suggesting half of Donald Trump's supporters are "deplorable."
"These comments are not only deplorable, but they also reveal the hypocrisy of liberalism," Jeffress said in an interview with Varney & Co. on Fox Business.
