New age text are not related to the Latter Day Saint movement directly. However, some Latter Day Saints see one or more of the following books as Christian in a way that allows them to embrace their teachings. Many new age texts are messages that believed to have been channeled from disembodied entities by spiritual mediums. Because these texts generally come from spirits, or people being “possessed” by unknown spirits, we recommend readers study with the following in mind:
“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.” -1 John 4:1-6
