BOOK RECOMMENDATIONS

Sayings of the Desert Fathers. This is a core book for this web site. Very highly recommended.


DISCLAIMER: Personally I think disclaimers are stupid and pretentious, but I have to put this on here so you don't think I endorse these links. My web page is about independent pursuit and independent thought, and that means being responsible for looking and knowing what's out there. In so doing I found some interesting things, but not because I like it or endorse it, but because I just find them "interesting." But the majority of the links I do like and would endorse.

Definition of NEW AGE as used on this links page (and web site): If you haven't explored the theology of this web site, then you may not be aware that I aspire to be a non-denominational Christian with Jewish additions. I do not have as part of my faith any beliefs which do not have their origins in early Christianity and/or Judaism.

In the past decade or so there has been an dramatic increase in the belief in aliens, UFO's, pre-civilization (e.g., origin of the Pyramids), psychic phenomena, destiny of the human spirit and its cosmic evolution, interpretations of Biblical prophesy and alternative prophesy (e.g., Mayans and 2012, Third Secret of Fatima), apparitions of Mary and other spirits, etc. This trend and increase of alternative beliefs is what I am calling New Age items for the general purpose of describing something which is difficult to describe.

I believe these New Age trends need to be studied. I do not think they necessarily need to be believed in, but since a lot of people do believe in them, it helps to know why. I make the argument in a different part of this web site that if a person refuses to have faith in God "just because," but then believes in some New Age belief, how hypocritical is that? Our faith is being tested in our generation just as it was in 30 AD, 100 AD, 1517 AD, and always. Our lives are defined by the decisions we make in our unique cultural environment. For those people living in this age and making decisions concerning their religious beliefs, the New Age is an exciting but dangerous element in our lives. Choose carefully.
