Nuggets from Occult Invasion—Fantasies from “Inner Space” |

Dave Hunt

Returning from the moon, with his experience of samadhi fresh in his memory, Mitchell founded the Institute of Noetic Sciences, “dedicated to advancing our understanding of consciousness….” That organization, he says, spends “hundreds of thousands of dollars and many thousands of staff time hours investigating man’s inner experiences….” Mitchell writes:

“I would like to close with a saying that those of you who have heard me speak have heard many times in the past. It helps me convey the notion that seems to be permeating our thinking at this point…. It is that ‘God sleeps in the minerals, awakens in plants, walks in animals, and thinks in man.’”

It is astonishing that anyone could believe in a “God” who originally had no consciousness but “awakened” in plants and was finally able to think in man. Man’s thoughts, from base trivialities and petty selfishness to grandiose delusions and the monstrous evil of a Himmler and Hitler, do not reflect well upon Mitchell’s “God”!

Once a professing Christian, Mitchell has even exceeded the pagans by attributing evil thoughts and lusts and wickedness to his god who “thinks in man.” Such is the deluding power of mystical experiences in furthering the occult invasion.

The same delusion is current within the church. Consider the book Journey to Inner Space: Finding God in You. Written by a guru from the East? No, by the pastor of the first Baptist Church in Seattle, Washington. More of that later.
