When genuine contact is made with the spirit realm, the communications that come through are inevitably anti-Christian. The “God” of the channeled materials contradicts God’s Word and even holds God up to ridicule. One of the boldest, latest, and most popular examples is found in Conversations with God: An Uncommon Dialogue, which Neale Donald Walsch claims just “happened” to him and is “God’s latest word on things.” In an obvious put-down of Jesus, this “God” says:
“There was once…a new soul…anxious for experience. ‘I am the light,’ it said. ‘I am the light….’ Every soul was grand…and every soul shone with the brilliance of My awesome light. And so the little soul in question was as a candle in the sun.”
The blasphemy continues with this “little soul” coming to earth to discover its true self. Like Buddha and many others, Jesus eventually “attained mastery…. What Jesus did…is the path of the Buddha, the way of Krishna, the walk of every Master who has appeared on the plane…. So who said Jesus was perfect?” Yet we’re born as gods and goddesses and there is neither sin nor judgment. There are no morals; God has no opinions and makes no judgments; we are free to do whatever makes us feel good. It is all very comforting to those who, like Phil Jackson, want to justify their rejection of the Christ of the Bible and replace Him with “another Jesus” (2 Corinthians:11:4) and “another gospel” (Galatians:1:6,7).
This “God” (who claims to be the author of A Course in Miracles) also tells Walsch that Satan and demons are nonexistent: “You have created in your mythology the being you call ‘devil.’ You have even imagined a God at war with this being…. Of course, a real devil does not exist….” Of course “God” says we are all evolving through many lifetimes ever higher to oneness with God. Walsch has been on earth during many lifetimes and may have as many chances to do it over again and again as he wants or needs. “God” says:
“This ‘be Who You Really Are’ business…[is] the most challenging thing you’ll ever do…. You may never get there. Few people do. Not in one lifetime. Not in many… You are immortal. You never do die. You simply change form. [Concerning Adam and Eve,] there were more than two. [Life] evolved over billions of years…the evolutionists are right…! Using psychic ability is nothing more than using your sixth sense…not trafficking with the devil…there is no devil…. Each to his own without judgment.”
It is the amazing unity of the channeled material and the fact that its basic message consistently reflects the four lies of the serpent in the Garden that both proves its reality and identifies its source. Enlightenment involves recognizing the illusion of our daily entranced experience and awakening to the true reality lying behind it. Jean Houston declares:
“These [channeled] ‘entities] as we call them—are essentially ‘goddings’ of the depth of the psyche. They are personae of the self that take on acceptable form so that we can have relationship and thus dialogue.”
Goddings of the depth of the psyche so we can dialogue with ourselves? Jean can’t even tell us what that means! How much more reasonable to accept the evidence that demonic entities are deceiving mankind.
