From Physics To Metaphysics

by Roger Oakland

Evolution, according to its biological definition, is a mechanism that changes life through time. Although for years, many have used the idea of evolution to explain away God, there are many today who are saying, because of evolution, everything is God. This trend is obvious in Great Britain, the very country where Charles Darwin authored his theory – physics has turned into metaphysics? How is this possible?

Glastonbury is situated in the southern part of England. From antiquity, Glastonbury has been known as a mystical center where numerous people have made the claim they have encountered the spiritual realm. Many and fantastic are the legends, a mythology which is still alive and growing today. Every year people go there from all over the world seeking spiritual solutions to their physical problems.

I had the opportunity to visit Glastonbury in the spring of 1997 while I was in England. I had just spent a couple of days researching the life of Charles Darwin and investigating the impact this man had on so many lives. His message, centered on natural selection and survival of the fittest, still shapes the thinking of evolutionists today. His motive, a disdain for Christianity, provides the basis for the “scientific” view there is no need for the supernatural. Today, throughout England and around the world, numerous monuments erected in his honor called “natural history museums,” project his beliefs as if he were God.

My trip to Glastonbury and Stonehenge revealed another aspect of Darwinism that most “evolutionary biologists” are not thrilled to discuss. The idea of natural selection may have been designed to explain God away, but in reality, through time, it has been the catalyst which has created an environment which has done exactly the opposite. It seems there has been a major shift in thinking over the past few decades. Our present generation has become frustrated with believing in naturalism. Now they are willing to believe that anything and everything is God.

There is no question mysticism and superstition, which modern science was supposed to have eliminated, has made a comeback in Great Britain. The shops in Glastonbury were filled with spiritual paraphernalia which would make one think we had returned to the pagan past.

At the core of these resurrected ideas was the basic belief in evolution. Man, according to the “new spirituality,” is on the verge of taking a giant leap of evolution. “Space brothers” or “spiritual guides,” whom it is believed have evolved to a “higher lever,” are waiting for us to make the leap. Meanwhile, worldly intellects are encouraged to spend their time practicing yoga, humming mantras or rubbing crystals. There are many ways to contact the “gods.”

I am fascinated with how evolution has evolved over the years – from mysticism to Darwinism then back to mysticism again. History has repeated itself, just as it has done many times before. The only thing that is unique this time is that “evolutionary mysticism” is a global religion. The Bible describes this current trend as “Christian Babylonianism.” The Bible also makes it clear that it will trigger off God’s wrath. Based upon my understanding of current events, it appears the time of God’s wrath may be soon! (from Understand the Times with Roger Oakland)

A New Reformation?

The nature of the emerging church’s new reformation is anything but new, and when it comes to pass could bear witness to persecution upon those who defend the Bible as the true and literal Word of God.

Or An End-Time Deception

The Bible says that in the last days satan will deceive the whole world with doctrines of demons and seducing spirits.  The question that ought to be asked; “Is the emerging church spirituality part of this great falling away?”

The Evangelization of Eucharistic Adoration

The Roman Catholic Church has a plan to establish the Kingdom of God here on Earth and win the world to the Roman Catholic Jesus – the Eucharist Christ.  It is believed the “triumph of the Eucharist” will be accomplished when the world (including the separated brethren) come under the rule and reign of Rome and the Eucharist Jesus.  The presence of “Christ” in the Eucharist is the second coming, Roman Catholic style.

The Emerging Church is the bridge to Rome.

The Kingdom of God on Earth

The Bible says that Jesus Christ will establish His kingdom when He returns to Earth.  But today, a theology called Kingdom Now or Dominionism is permeating the walls of Christianity, and the emerging church movement is taking this heretical belief full speed into the next generation.  With the idea that the church can establish the Kingdom of God before Christ returns and essentially turn our world into a Christian world, thus, this belief system has literally changed the way countless Christians view the world and go about their Christian living.  What most don’t realize, seemingly, is this Kingdom of God on Earth mindset is an all out effort by satan to merge together the religions of the world and thus negate the true gospel message.

Ancient-Future Worship

The emerging church embraces multi-sensory worship.  While many are bewildered as to why their churches are darkening their sanctuaries, setting up prayer stations with candles, incense, and icons, the promoters of the emerging church movement say they know exactly what they are doing by practising mysticism through music, rituals, worship and offering. and stimulating images, for a spiritual experience.  Leaders of the emerging church say the ideas and beliefs of the early church fathers (100 A.D. to 600 A.D.) are important and these teachings from the past will bring spiritual transformation and success to churches in the 21st century.

When West Meets East

Contemplative spirituality (mysticism) is crucial to the emerging church.  Without it, there is no momentum, indeed, it is woven into the very fabric of the emerging church’s ambience.  In order to understand why this is so important to the emerging church, it is imperitive to understand the dynamics of contemplative spirituality.

Monks, Mystics, and the Ancient Wisdom

The emerging church is embracing contemplative spirituality and what is known as the ancient wisdom.   While appearing to be Christian because of the altered terminology, in actuality, it is occult based and New Age.
