Pastor Adrian Rogers of Love Worth Finding Ministries went home to Jesus in 2005, but his sermons still teach and inspire people every week on Christian radio stations around the world and on the internet. Today, in 2019, we hear him preach on a topic that has only become even stronger and more dangerous since he died, the new age movement. The things he mentioned, like pantheism, karma, meditation, and the elimination of the idea of good and evil are now a part of everyday life and people don’t even bat an eye. They think they can be Christian and participate in and believe and participate in these false teachings.

These ideas are being spread in various ways and philosophies, from Kindergarten to college philosophy classes to social media memes, but the most popular one I’m hearing lately is existentialism. This ‘be happy because nothing is real and nothing matters’ idea is popular with Millennials , former hippies, and even weak Christians. Wikipedia defines it this way.
Existential nihilism is the philosophical theory that life has no intrinsic meaning or value. With respect to the universe, existential nihilism suggests that a single human or even the entire human species is insignificant, without purpose and unlikely to change in the totality of existence.
Why not live a selfish, sensual life? Why not pursue your own version of a spiritual experience ? Why should we worry about confessing sin if there is no such thing, or being prepared for an afterlife or judgment if nothing really matters or exists? Satan is at his age old tricks of leading people away from God by promising them god-status or nirvana or simply peace. But there is no peace without Jesus! Jesus warned us that false prophets would come and that they would seem like angels. Beware and know the truth by studying the Bible! God is holy, just, and real. Listening to radio sermons is a great resource.
