New Age Spirituality is a movement toward an individualized set of beliefs that are generally panthiestic ("God is all and in all") and nature-centered worship ("Gaia" - Mother Earth), that include a mixture of teachings from eastern religions combined with beliefs of many other religions.

Box Office Pantheism Critiques of Avatar's spirituality should be winsome—and prophetic

Mar. 8, 2010 - Avatar, the most profitable movie in history, will undeniably undermine Christian thought. According to Movieguide, the film "has an abhorrent New Age, pagan, anti-capitalist worldview that promotes goddess worship and the destruction of the human race."
What all this amounts to, grumbled New York Times columnist Ross Douthat, is Cameron's "long apologia for pantheism," which has been "Hollywood's religion of choice for a generation now."

However, the Christian debate is not only about the content of the movie, but about how Christians should engage the culture when something as powerful as this story affects millions of impressionable minds. One school of thought is to ignore and abstain from seeing the movie. The second approach is to view movies with a purpose of honest discovery and analysis of their contents from a Christian point of view. The article suggests that both groups can learn something from the other.

With the engager's vision and the separatists' instinct, the church and its moviegoers can navigate Hollywood's muddled spiritualities with rigor and grace.

Christian apologists: Be careful with Oprah's spiritual teachings

Jan. 26, 2010 - Renowned apologist Josh McDowell and up-and-coming apologist Dave Sterrett addressed a crowd of more than 1,500 people at McLean Bible Church outside Washington DC last friday.They have written a book called, "Oh God: A Dialogue on Truth on Oprah's Spirituality", that warns Christians not to accept her panthiestic spiritual teachings.

The book contains many exact quotes from Oprah and the authors she promotes on their views of spirituality. She teaches that there are multiple paths to reach God.

She also emphasises that people should carry out their inner longings instead of restraining themselves if the act is said to be a sin by the Bible.
