Many people including Bible scholars believe that we are rapidly heading towards a One World system which will incorporate all institutions – the government, banking, commerce, workplaces, schools, churches and the media, etc. – into a worldwide network to provide the basis for the persecution of true Christians during the tribulation period.
The Bible tells us that in the last days not that many will be false teachers, but that most will be false teachers.
It is quite possible for a person to follow a syncretistic religion — a faith involving elements from two or more religions. Sometimes disparagingly called ‘shopping-cart’ or ‘pick and mix’ religion this practice is common within the so-called “New Age” movement. The Bible makes it quite clear, that syncretism – mixing in any way whatsoever with anything that has its roots in pagan or non-Bible based beliefs or practices – is an abomination to God.
There are even churches that would claim to be “New Age” Christian Churches, such as St. James, Piccadilly, in central London which has associated itself with the New Age since the 1970s. In their Mission Statement they say: “We understand ourselves to be called to gather as a body which welcomes and celebrates human diversity, including spirituality, ethnicity, gender and sexual orientation – create a space where people of any faith or none can question and discover the sacred in life through openness, struggle, laughter and prayer – a common commitment to be in solidarity with poor and marginalized people and to cherish creation (we don’t manage it all the time, so we try again).”
Christian churches are being infiltrated by the New Age through many avenues such as various ungodly forms of Christian music, especially rock but also country and western and other worldly types of music. There is Christian energy light working and healing in various forms, reiki, yoga, meditation, and many other non-biblical practices. There are many Christian books which have no solid biblical basis such as various forms of Christian self-help psychology, for example Joyce Meyer’s books, along with ‘Christian’ books such as “One Thousand Gifts” and “The Shack” which are in fact a form of Christian witchcraft.
“The Occult and Cursed Objects List” on this site provides some further information on witchcraft in Christianity, whether through false doctrine or commercial exploitation, etc.
Whether it is seemingly harmless and beneficial practices such as contemplative prayer, ‘soaking’, lectio divina, or labyrinths, an ever-increasing plethora of non-biblically based practices are being brought into Christianity. These are things we don’t actually even need, as according to His Word itself, God has already given us everything we need. As these practices take their part in corrupting the true and pure Gospel of Jesus Christ, they are anything but harmless and beneficial, and in fact constitute a form of witchcraft, which is an abomination to God, and as such falls totally within the realm of the devil and the demonic.
“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.” (1 John 4:1)
“I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.” (Galatians 1:6-10)
Repeatedly in the Bible, witchcraft in particular is expressly forbidden, whether black or white. Yet, astonishingly, a Google search for “Christian Witchcraft” returns 10.5 million results, and “Christian Witch” returns 42.6 million results.

The following videos include an interview with Mary-Kathryn, a popular Christian singer, where she proclaims to be a part of something called ‘New Age Christianity’.
A closer look at ‘The New Age’ clearly shows that it is a contrived construct and false through and through, made up of lies and fabrications by Satan and his servants along with those who have been deceived by them. So it follows that there can be no such thing as ‘New Age Christianity’. Indeed the songs and the mode of singing are discernibly witch-like.
Mary-Kathryn sings “The 91st Psalm” and then “Incense of Praise” from her album “Dreams & Visions”:
