Eckhart Tolle's New Age Belief Comparison

Our Belief Tolle's New Age Belief
The Bible is the Word of God The Bible is a collection of writings by man, and once enlightened the reader will know which verses are truth.
There is one God God is the impersonal force or life essence behind all life forms. The God of the Bible is the God that man made in his own image... "a mental idol."
The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are 3 in one The Bible is a collection of writings by man, and once enlightened the reader will know which verses are truth.
Man was created in the Image of God God is a spiritual life force. Man turned the infinite into an image of himself.
Salvation is received by faith in Jesus Christ (life, death, and resurrection) and not by our works Christ did not come to die, but rather to show us how to live, or the "Christ Consciousness." Salvation is realizing one's Christ Consciousness, or the God that is in us all.
All who believe in Christ become Children of God We already pocess the "source of all power," regardless of of acceptance of Christ.
As Christians we are to abide by the standards set in the Holy Bible "There are millions of ways to be a human being, and many paths to what you call God." - Oprah Winfrey
No man can contradict/ edit the Word of God The Bible is only one source of truth (although not in its entirety)... each person must live as he/ she feels correct, and interpret the Bible as he /she believes.

Notes: There are many different teachings in the New Age Movement, along with many different sects. This specifically applies to one of the more popular movements lead by Oprah Winfrey and best seller Eckhart Tolle.

According to Oprah, Tolle "is a preimenent spiritual leader" and she holds him to be a "prophet for... the 21st century." While Oprah maintains that Tolle's teachings do not contradict Christianity, Tolle himself has said that he does not give death or the after-life any thought. This New Age religion also denounces the importance of Christ's death, as Oprah has publicly chided that when she was a Baptist she thought it was all about His [Jesus'] death and resurrection, when it was really about Him coming to "show us how to do it... To show us the Christ consciousness that he had, and that consciousness abides with all of us."

When asked if Christ was the only way to Heaven, Oprah emphatically replied, "There can't possibly be one way," showing us that her and Tolle's New Age beliefs are really a combination between Universalism and Gnosticism... and nothing new at all.

Status: this article is undisputed.
