Self-help books and motivational training programs such as The Secret and Landmark, are part of the New Age’s Human Potential Movement, which combine psychology and spirituality into programs and cult-like training seminars that promote a human-centered psychology based on the belief that a person is in complete control of their destiny.
We recently had a beautiful testimony from a woman who remained true to Christ in spite of being recommended to a variety of New Age practitioners for help with her chronic pain. Although she has still not found the help she is seeking, Jesus is filling her with the grace she needs to trust in Him. May He reward her with the healing she seeks!

BW writes: “My husband is a very sick man with several serious medical problems and while I was looking up different medicinal ways of helping him I came across a different way of practicing medicine which is called Functional Medicine. After asking someone about Functional Medicine I was told that it works, and many people have been healed by it. My concern is if you know anything about it and if you do does it have anything to do with New Age or the occult? I do not want us to get involved with anything like that.”
