Against New Atheism, the New Age, Abortion, and Homosexuality – John Boruff

According to recent statistics, about 50% of the Millennial Generation (born around the 1980s) are atheists or agnostics. The other 50% is primarily New Age (pluralistic, believing in all religions). Evangelical, Charismatic, and Bible-believing Christians in this generation must be conscious of these issues, and be intellectually ready to combat these philosophies and religions with books, videos, conversations, and preaching. What’s more, the national ethical dilemma of abortion and homosexuality being supported by such organizations as Planned Parenthood. What should Christians do? Read, study, pray, and PREACH AGAINST THESE SINS. The following are Christian books to help you convert these people groups to Biblical Christianity.

These are Evangelical books against the occult and New Age forms of spirituality. However, sometimes they even condemn Pentecostal/Charismatic Christianity as occultic! So, I would suggest to “eat the meat and spit out the bones.”
