New Age QUESTION from Helen Bauserman May 11, 2000 How harmful is New Age? I am in a chat room with alot of people that would be characterized as new age followers..while I don't believe in much of what they say and I can't follow it half the time because it is so full of metaphysical jargon I do wonder how harmful this might be to me and my beliefs. I bring up my faith in the Catholic Church and why we do some of the things we do..half the time I feel as if I have to defend it. Most are christians, some are not. While I like to explore other beliefs I sometimes am not comfortable with the subjects discussed and will leave when that happens. I recently came back to the church about 5 years ago. I don't want anything to interfere with the relationship I have with Jesus or God. Do you think this could be harmful?

New Age is new Satanism. Play in Satan's sandbox, you WILL get Satan's sand in your shoes.
