Common Ground with Theosophists

Willis Harman, is a Luciferian Theosophist, served as president of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, and is considered a metaphysical futurist. He taught during a conference heavily attended by leading Evangelicals for the purpose of finding "common ground" with Theosophists. These Consultations were attended by mainstream evangelical leaders, and they were sponsored by the Billy Graham Center at Wheaton College. The second conference in 1979 titled, "Continuing Consultation on Future Evangelical Concerns" was summarized in a book An Evangelical Agenda: 1984 and Beyond.

According to the Chairman of the conference, Hudson T. Armerding, the President of Wheaton College, "We learn that the purpose of the conference was to “enlarge the vision of God’s people and enable them to have a still more effective stewardship of time and opportunity in these critical days.” Upon analysis, the conference transcripts suggest that they valued "common ground".

This Consultation represents one of the first publicly-disclosed occasions where Evangelicals and New Agers met together to address common ground. Is it possible that this event marked the beginning of the public phase of the integration of Theosophy with Christianity? Perhaps so, when you consider the proposals made by Willis Harman were to integrate the psychic into Christianity to create a new synthesized "truth."

Willis Harman's presentation to the evangelical leaders called for a “new” science, which he had termed “noetic” science, a Gnostic science, based on his research into the paranormal and the human brain. He listed such things as hypnosis, remote viewing, precognition, psychokinesis and psychic phenomena. He called for more scientific research into the “the world of inner experience,” meaning psychic phenomena. All this could create a future utopia.[4]
In the years to come, many of the evangelical leaders who attended these Consultations would go on to work on inventing new theologies. They initiated projects that would re-shape Christian theology into these futuristic and esoteric images of man and his destiny.[5]

These leaders attended one or more of the conferences and were well-known at the time. Many are still alive and active in Evangelical Church. It makes you wonder if they were uncomfortable participating in this event that is diametrically opposed to Christianity.
