What is new about New Age? Nothing, except that the devil comes up with new ways of marketing himself and the kingdom of darkness, new ways of deception, a new package, a new brand name, new schemes, but it’s the same old devil. When it comes to New Age philosophy ‘Ignorance is not a bliss’. There is a New Age demonic cure for sicknesses and diseases known as homeopathy.
Homeopathy has managed to lure in many naïve Christians who believe in the promises that homeopathy is a cure for all their ailments with an assurance of no side-effects and inexpensive medication. It claims to treat the patient and not just the symptoms. Homeopathic practitioners and patients who have tried out homeopathy will vouch for it because they have been cured and are convinced that it works just as it has promised. So, how does it really work and why is it very dangerous for Christians to try this form of treatment and remedies to cure sicknesses and diseases.
Although, it may seem as there is nothing secretive about homeopathy, about how it cures a person and the way the remedies are prepared by the laws of similars, laws of susceptibility, laws of infinitesimal and potencies. All this information is openly available. We know that the devil is not all that he appears to be.
Samuel Hahnemann was the founder of Homoeopathy. He was a freemason and a follower of Swedenborg who was a powerful spiritist and medium. Samuel Hahnemann was inspired by Swiss occultist and magician Paracelsus. Hahnemann associated the similarities between the practice of homeopathy and mesmerism which is based on the doctrine of animal magnetism by Franz Mesmer who was a Swiss-German physician. Hahnemann was a satanist and his development of homeopathy is influenced by evil. “For there is no good tree which produces bad fruit, nor, on the other hand, a bad tree which produces good fruit. For each tree is known by its own fruit. For men do not gather figs from thorns, nor do they pick grapes from a briar bush. The good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth what is good; and the evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth what is evil; for his mouth speaks from that which fills his hearts” (Luke 6:43-45).
(The beliefs of homeopathy are strongly inspired by eastern tradition and religion. Homeopathy principles are based on new age occult philosophy or cosmic energy called the ‘vital force’. This vital force is based on pantheism as in Hinduism where they believe God is everywhere and the universe is identical with divinity. In traditional Chinese medicines qi (chi), is considered a vital force or energy responsible for controlling the workings of the human mind and body. Some homeopathic remedies are also named after demons such ‘Kali Bichromicum’ (Potassium Dichromate). Kali is a Hindu demonic goddess called black, the goddess of death and destruction, red-eyed, blood-stained, and wearing a necklace of skull. Therefore, since the children share in flesh and blood, he likewise shared in their humanity, so that through death he could destroy the one who holds the power of death (that is, the devil), and set free those who were held in slavery all their lives by their fear of death. (Hebrews 2:14-15). Kali is also known as Bhavatarini meaning ‘Redeemer of the Universe’. Jesus alone is our Redeemer. Anyone else claiming to be redeemer is the ‘spirit of antichrist’. For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. But they are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus (Romans 3: 23-24). )
Have you ever wondered why science has not been able to prove in any laboratory tests on the authenticity or medicinal properties and potencies relating to homeopathy? Science has made incredible breakthroughs in medicine and humanity has advanced to great stages in our history. Why does science categorize homeopathy under quackery and pseudoscience? That’s because whatever is of spiritual nature can never be explained by science. Science is based on facts not on beliefs, supernatural or faith.* The devil is a spiritual being and so is his healing. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places (Ephesians 6:12). *Some Christian’s are misled into thinking that since homeopathy is made from things found in nature, it is perfectly safe for them to use homeopathy as remedies. Things found in nature can be used for any purposes, for good or for evil. For instance water can be blessed and used as Holy Water, which is used for purifications and deliverances and there are many testimonies where people have been healed and delivered just by the sprinkling of Holy Water in the name of Jesus. Water also can be used for evil purposes such as making homeopathic remedies by succession which supposedly based on occult practices (occult means hidden) so that it is no more just plain water but some spiritual demonic force is transferred during the process of making the remedies that causes the healing which is evil.
Homeopathy aims at treating the whole person: physiologically, physically, and spiritually, which is the mind, body and spirit approach. *How can any natural substance used in minute doses heal a person spiritually unless it has some supernatural powers? How can the devil bring any wholeness to anyone when he is not whole himself? It’s like the broke beggar promising others prosperity. *That’s what the devil does, he is a liar, a deceiver. His healing is not real but counterfeit. The devil has some limited powers but he cannot bring any complete healing, so he manipulates and deceives people with his counterfeit healing. Although, people may seem to be cured from one sickness but they keep having different sicknesses and thereby have to continue with homeopathy for different ailments, it’s like a ship with a hole, fix one hole and immediately another hole appears. The devil deceives people letting them know that if they use homeopathy they will have no side-effect but what they don’t know is that they start having many demonic effects, they have no peace in their family. There are cases of depression, fear, insomnia, nightmares and various kinds of demonic oppressions.
Jesus alone can bring wholeness to us. The thief comes only in order to steal, kill and destroy. I have come in order that you might have life, life in all its fullness (John 10:10). God is a Spirit and so is the devil. We too have a spirit. When we die, our spirit leaves our body and goes to be with Jesus. God is the Holy Spirit, whereas the devil is an evil spirit. God is almighty and all powerful. The devil is not equal to God, no one is. Christians are more powerful than the devil because we have the Holy Spirit of God in us. But you belong to God, my dear children.* You have already won a victory over those people, because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world (1 John 4:4).*
