Divination. The art of foretelling the future. Some use dreams, tea leaves, Ouija boards, astrology, etc. Demons cannot foretell the future.They can only manipulatecircumstances so that it looks like they knew what was going to happen. If psychics can foretell the future, why don't they win the Lotto every week? Scriptures torefute this are:
If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying . Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, andlet us serve them; Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the lord your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the lord your God with allyour heart and with all your soul (Deut. 13:1-3).
There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observerof times, or an enchanter,or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.For all that do these things are an abomination unto the lord: and because of these abominations the lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee (Deut. 18:10 - 12).

Goddess worship. New Agers, as well as Wiccans, believe in a female deity as opposed to the Christian belief in a male deity. There are many different goddesses that they worship, not just one.

Salvation. New Agers do not believe in salvation. Salvation to a New Ager may mean salvaging yourlife potential by gaining knowledge of the occult .

There weregiants in the earth in those days; and also afterthat, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. And god saw that the wickedness of man wa s great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the lord that he ...
