Christian and Christ-follower are now considered as a two different thing as the New Spirituality is now slowly taking over the Christian faith in today’s Christianity. (Hartzell, 2008) The New Spirituality is also known as the New Age. Unlike any other formal religions, it has no holy text, creed, dogma and et cetera. It is a network of believers and practitioners who share the common beliefs and practices. In 1970’s, this New Age teachings has become well known because it was used as a reaction against the failure of Christianity and Secular Humanism to provide spiritual and ethical guidance for the future. This movement began in England in 1960, and slowly went across the world. (New Age Spirituality, n.d.)
