Evangelizing New Agers

by Doug Groothuis

from the Witnessing Tips column of the Christian Research Journal, Winter/Spring 1987, page 7. The Editor-in-Chief of the Christian Research Journal is Elliot Miller.

Christians are called to proclaim the true gospel of Jesus Christ to New Agers by developing appropriate evangelistic strategies. This article will make some suggestions along these lines. But first it will be helpful to summarize the New Age world view. (Biblical references which are helpful in refuting these ideas also follow).

With this outline in mind, let's briefly explore evangelistic strategies.

The New Age movement challenges us to reach out to those intoxicated by spiritual deception. We must seek the Holy Spirit concerning how He would have us witness of His saving truth to those in darkness.
