The 'New Age' movement very cleverly and subtly suggests that we exchange "obsolete" and "outmoded" tenets and beliefs of our Catholic-Christian faith for its own more "modern" and "relevant" spiritual principles and philosophies. This is exactly what St. Paul was referring to in his letter to the Romans when he stated: "For they exchanged the truth for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator." [Romans 1:25] For each of the following concepts or truths of our Christian faith, the New Age offers its own "new" and "enlightened" substitute [ie. lies]:

A note from Bob Stanley:
The only thing new about 'New Age' is the name itself. The concept goes all the way back to Adam and Eve: "For GOD knows that when you eat of it, your eyes will be opened and you will be like GOD, knowing good and evil." Gen 3:5
