The Light That Was Dark (Paperback)
By: Warren Smith
“The Light That Was Dark” is a sober warning to the world and the church. Author Warren Smith learned some hard lessons as a spiritual seeker. Concerned that today’s church is being seduced by the same false teachings and the same false Christ that drew him into the New Age, Smith shares his story ….
“Led down a yellow brick road by pied piper spirits, I had, with the best intentions, landed in a metaphysical New Age where the Christ proclaimed was not the real Christ at all. A well-orchestrated and exquisitely timed series of supernatural synchronistic experiences had convinced me that my involvement in alternative spirituality was ‘meant to be.’”
“Following the signs and wonders of deceptive spirits, I had jumped through my spiritual hoops with almost flawless precision …. As Joy and I had unknowingly plugged into the spirit world, we never realized that most of the voices we were listening to were part of the deception the real Jesus had warned about.”
Smith’s personal account of spiritual deception reveals the subtleties of the New Age movement and warns readers to use discernment in their pursuit of spirituality.
"A captivating book ... The conclusion is absolutely riveting. In easy-to-read, laid-back style, Smith recounts his harrowing spiritual journey." - Discernment Ministries
"For any persons who are considering involving themselves in New Age "spirituality" – which is really a very old spirituality – and might wonder what that spirituality is like and where it might take them, then Warren Smith's "The Light That Was Dark" is a must read." - Pastor Larry DeBruyn
"An excellent introduction to the basic beliefs of what is commonly called the New Age. There is no better way to teach than through a story and this book teaches through that medium superbly. The Light That Was Dark is a page turner that is very riveting and yet so real, exalting above all the Savior of the world and instructing all to 'beware of the light that is dark.'" - Paul Crow, N.C.
