Deepak Chopra Defines Spirit
Thought leader Deepak Chopra says spirit is life—it’s the source of our values, inspirations and intuition. Watch as he explains how being spiritually aware will help resolve any problem or fear. Plus, Oprah shares the first step to becoming a more spiritual person.
Many new age teachings that are being promoted by Oprah Winfrey and others emphasize self awareness, self reliance, self determination, and self glorification. Being in tune with and relying on ones self as the answer to all that ails us and the world. But the truth of the matter is most people are their own worst enemy. And the behaviors and lifestyles that are contrary to the word of God and that many have become shackled by are the very sources of all their problems and the things that are truly destroying them, both physically and spiritually.
In reality most of us need a supreme higher form of knowledge and wisdom, separate from our own very flawed and very limited human spirit and nature, human knowledge, and human awareness to lead us out of our abysmal state. And reliance on the human spirit, human knowledge and awareness, and human nature as well as everything that comes with it. It’s limitations, weaknesses, lack of moral character, susceptibility to all kinds of destructive habits, etc, is the last place many of us need to look for real answers and solutions to our problems. Because reliance on the human spirit, human nature, and limited human knowledge and reasoning are the very things that got many people into the mess that they are presently in.
But there is a loving supreme authority who has all the answers to what ails mankind, but the problem is most people simply refuse to listen and obey his loving guidance and direction. Total reliance on weak, carnal,corrupt human spirit and human nature as the answer to all of our problems, something that is being promoted by many of these new age movements is satanic in nature and very destructive. Many of these new age teachings are designed to take the focus off God and put complete focus on man and his frail, limited, flawed abilities. And in so doing drive the clueless, blind, ignorant,mislead followers into the open arms of Satan . A process that Satan has devised and loves because he knows better than anyone how much influence and power he has over individuals who reject God and his word as the only real source of truth, wisdom, knowledge, guidance and direction.
Eliminating God from the picture which is what most of these end time false religions, doctrines, and teachings are centered around. But they don’t necessarily say it directly but it is obviously contained in a message that says you need to look no further than yourself and other men for the answers to all your problems. In a world where God and his word are being increasingly rejected and replaced by the teachings of sexually perverse men and women who encourage others to put complete and total trust in man’s carnal, corrupt, weak nature, and these individuals, amounts to a one way ticket to the lake fire. Based on the twisted, distorted direction that they will lead you, a direction that is normally in complete defiance of and is totally contrary to and rejects God’s word and his authority, but is made to appear like it is not with sporadic references to God and the Bible every now and then. While at the same time mixing in these satanic, God hating end time doctrines, teachings and messages, which are normally diametrically opposite of what the Bible teaches.
Putting absolute faith in the human spirit and human nature is simply an assurance that anyone who does it will be living in a way that is contrary to God and his word which instructs us to put absolute faith in God and not carnal men or ones self. Mankind’s desire for self reliance, self glorification, and self determination has produced the world we live in now, a world separate from God that is rife with war torn societies, murder epidemics in cities, sexual perversions, disease, hunger, faltering economies, and the list goes on.
The truth of the matter is when men and women are allowed to create and establish their own guidelines as to what is considered right and wrong which is truly what self reliance and self determination can be defined as, this quickly evolves into societies and a world where there are no boundaries. Which quickly dissolves into world of disorder, discord, chaos, anarchy and ultimately destruction, and unfortunately the same thing applies on a personal level. A world totally reliant on man and self with his limited knowledge, carnal, flawed character and nature, and shortcomings. Highly educated men and women who have proven that they are all but incapable of solving the most basic of social problems, is tantamount to physical and spiritual suicide, is satanic in nature, and simply a recipe for disaster.
2 Timothy 4:2-4
2. Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.
3. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
4. And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
