New Age practices incompatible with Christianity

Holy Spirit never interferes with free will

Moira Noonan was a former New Age practitioner who now warns Christians against the movement. She spoke at a conference in Edmonton last week. Chris Miller from the Western Catholic Reporter writes:
Speaking in tongues, interpretation of tongues, prophecy, wisdom, music and reverence are gifts of the Holy Spirit which are aimed to uplift and encourage the Christian community, said Moira Noonan.

People are predisposed to receive these gifts if they have such virtues as docility, humility and modesty, Noonan said.

“These gifts are very different from a New Age practitioner who practises as a metaphysician, one who is trained in secret knowledge and esoteric ways of receiving knowledge, from master to disciple, not through docility, but through power and control and domination,” she said.
