Former New-Age blogger Steven Bancarz smashed the deception of other religions in a recent Facebook post:
Jesus gives you new life, eternity in Heaven, regeneration, and everything the human spirit could even dream of asking for and it doesn't cost you a thing other than to surrender your heart to him and have faith in the work he did on the cross. That's it. There's no catch, there's no risk, there's no fine print. Go look at what other religions tell you to do to get into Heaven. "Obey all commandments and MAYBE you'll be saved but who knows". "Get rid of all your desires and rid your mind of attachment to everything". "Study the mysteries and learn all the secret knowledge you can to free yourself from the material world".
Bancarz, who used to be one of the leading online writers for spirit science and metaphysics topics, encountered the Holy Spirit earlier this year.
Now, he's on a mission to expose the lies behind the New Age movement by preaching the truth of Christ.
Seriously. Some people may not agree with "advertising" for Jesus like this but I have been thinking about this a lot lately and people need to have life spoken into them and know what God has in store for his children. This is the good news that people be to know it's what we search our whole lives for. God loves YOU and Jesus died for YOU and it costs you nothing to receive these blessings. There is a reason salvation is called a "gift". It's free and we all have access to this in Jesus, and all the false god of this world has to offer is a pile of crap disguised as pleasure for a season that leads to death in the end. He tricks you into rebellion and gives you pride to make you think you don't need Jesus and you can "get right with God" later. Or he will just tell you it's "religion" as a way to convince you not to look any deeper. You might go along with it because your flesh is weak and your heart might be hardened with pain, but deep down beneath the surface your spirit wants all that God has for you.
And Jesus is like no, just have faith in the work I did on the cross for you. I have you covered. And he gives us his Holy Spirit to confirm these things for us too. It's real, it's what life is all about, and it's the best news ever. I have come to know him just as hundreds of millions of others have, you can know him too, and all Jesus asks for in return is your heart.
"The Spirit and the Bride say, "Come." And let the one who hears say, "Come." And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who desires take the water of life without price." - Revelation 22:17 (ESV)
Man, that'll preach.
