The Root of Pantheism

Uproot Satan’s Lie From Eastern Meditation And Their Western Hybrids To Render Them Powerless.

God’s Truth Against Satan’s Lie

1 Tim 1:17 Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
1 Cor 15:53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

Whilst the Bible is clear that only God is immortal and that the righteous dead will only be raised immortal after their bodily resurrection when Christ returns, yet the serpent’s lie of the immortal soul has taken root in virtually every religion on earth since Eden and has become the foundation of spiritualistic practices including eastern meditation, it’s western hybrids, both religious and secular.

Gen 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? Gen 3:4-5 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

The serpent assured Eve with “for God doth know”, suggesting that what he said to Eve was true because God knows it to be true! The serpent insinuated that there was no need to differentiate between God’s trees and the serpent’s tree nor is there any need to differentiate between God and the serpent. In partaking of the serpent’s fruit, Eve shall discover her oneness with God. Her eyes shall be opened to her abiding immortal soul, the reality of her “god-consciousness” being so literal as to transcend beyond the need to differentiate between good and evil and between life and death.

The Lie Of The Immortal Soul In Eastern Meditation And Its Hybrids

Pantheistic contemplatives meditate to discover God as energy or essence which they perceive to pervade everything including themselves. Hence the pantheistic expression, “oneness with God” which expresses their destiny in meditation, their ultimate consciousness where “All is God”. On the other hand, extreme panentheists deify God as a Person and insist that God forcefully saturates and penetrates all of His creation, that God’s substance is in everything and everyone, nothing excluded. Panentheists meditate to discover their inborn inner-divine which is their microcosm of “God” within, which is not in any way less divine than God is divine and immortal. Extreme panentheist deify God and express their immutable and inescapable oneness as ” God is in all”,

Pantheistic meditators tend to be found within eastern belief systems incorporating energy, essence, chi, universal consciousness and the like. As panentheistic meditators deify God as a Person, they tend to flourish within Christendom, Judaism, Hinduism, etc where God is deity. Both pantheistic and panentheistic meditators are led by their mysticism to be so deceived as to turn the lie of Satan into experiential truth through meditation.

Many good Christian websites contain a wealth of information against eastern meditation and their myriad of Christianized and secularized hybrids. These websites warn the innocent by exposing the deceptive material of contemplatives of the emerging church, spiritual formation, New Age, etc. Much as they fight tooth and nail against these deceptive practices, but as they themselves are predisposed to the deceptive lie of the “immortal soul”, they still do not realize that exposing Satan’s lie will cut at the root of eastern meditation and their related meditative practices. They cannot see past what they themselves believe.


Pantheistic Buddhism and panentheistic Hinduism is the source of Mindfulness. Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn studied Zen (Buddhism) under masters Thich Nhat Hanh and Seung Sahn. Zinn also taught Hatha Yoga (Hinduism) which is the panentheism of Hinduism wherein OM asserts that God and man is one.

An author who believes in Mindfulness and also the lie of the immortal soul as truth has insisted that mindfulness neuroscientific research which he said, cannot see beyond brain matter into the soul must ” explain personal identity during a disembodied intermediate state between death and the final resurrection “.

That Mindfulness is based on eastern meditation practices is a fact. The relevant question is “Can eastern beliefs and their pantheistic world view be removed from Mindfulness to make it secular?” It is scientifically verifiable that eastern meditation alters the brain and the mind to generate neural phenomena that is neurally experienced and interpreted as discovering God within. This experience is not the Christian experience of Biblical conversion by the God of Heaven but of following in the ritual of eastern meditative practices that generate within the meditator’s own brain the sensation of discovering divinity which they presume was there from birth. This is done in silence without words. Hence, it is not possible by eliminating religious words from Buddhism and Hinduism that a secular form called Mindfulness can be developed because the religious spiritual worldview is generated directly within the meditator’s own brain through neural phenomena.

In 2006, in Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn’s audio program Mindfulness For Beginners, he described the goal of Mindfulness – “ There’s no place to go, nothing to attain …. It’s realizing you are already here so there’s no place else to go .. What happens now is what matters … The future we want is here now, we are already in it”. I would leave the leader to decide if Dr Kabat-Zinn’s goal smacks of pantheistic mysticism.

Eastern Meditation And Spiritualism

Eastern meditative practices and their foundational beliefs come within the term spiritualism. More than a hundred years ago, an inspired work had warned of its extensive global deceptive power – Satan has long been preparing for his final effort to deceive the world. The foundation of his work was laid by the assurance given to Eve in Eden: “Ye shall not surely die.” “In the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.” Genesis 3:4, 5.

Little by little he has prepared the way for his masterpiece of deception in the development of spiritualism. He has not yet reached the full accomplishment of his designs; but it will be reached in the last remnant of time.

Says the prophet: “I saw three unclean spirits like frogs; … they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.” Revelation 16:13, 14.

It is my prayer that we may cast down every imagination and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ
