> Many of us on
this list are Christians and we believe in the truth, even the innerancy of
scripture. But spiritual science is a path of spiritual knowledge, and while it
confirms the truths of the Bible, it is not in itself based on the
I do not believe that Anthroposophists hold
to the inerrancy of Scripture, otherwise you woudn't hold to Steiner's
distortion of the Bible. In fact, evidence is that all Anthroposophist writers
have said that the Bible is full of errors, and the Gospels are contradictory.
Just check the other posts if you do not believe me.
The Bible is without error, and the
Bible alone is sufficient to bring a person to salvation through faith in
Christ. Jesus confirms this truth through the story of the rich man in hell (Lk.
16:19-31). By refusing to listen to the word of God (v. 31), the rich man did
not escape the flames of hell.

give you pause that somene, Rudolf Steiner, could speak confidently of the
reality of Christ, of the Trinity, of Christ's Incarnation, death and
Resurrection, without deriving it from the Bible?
It makes me shudder to think where Rudolf
Steiner is now and how many people he has deceived because of his denial of the
many teachings of God's word. Anthroposophy is not a Christian
The Bible says that there is only one God, and
He is the LORD who exists as three distinct persons: Father, Son and Holy
Rudolf Steiner taught polytheism, that there
exists many gods.
The Bible says that Jesus Christ is God the
Son who was also fully Man (yet without sin).
Rudolf Steiner taught that Jesus and Christ
were two separate beings and that the former was only a human, whereas the
latter was a god.
The Bible says that man was created in the
image of God, i.e. with righteousness, holiness, and knowledge. In these
qualites man reflected the likeness of God. Yet, man was still created with
a human nature, not with a divine nature.
Rudolf Steiner erroneously taught that the
image of God meant that man was created with a divine nature, and are thus,
gods in embryo.
The Bible says that, since the fall of Adam
& Eve in the garden of Eden, man has been shut out from the tree of life,
and is born with a sinful nature.
Rudolf Steiner denied the biblical account of
the Fall and instead interpreted Genesis 3 in an extreme esoteric way. He said
that man is inherently good.
The Bible says that God the Son (Jesus Christ)
came down to earth to save His people from their sins, through His shed blood on
Rudolf Steiner denied the biblical atonement
of Jesus Christ, saying that His death was simply a demonstration of the power
of the huiman ego.
The Bible says that through the resurrection
of Christ, all those who turn to Him for forgiveness of sins are justified by
Rudolf Steiner taught that knowledge of
oneself and the development of one's ego will cause one to find one's
The Bible says that God's people -
those who have been saved by grace through faith - will gain eternal
life and live with Christ forever in heaven. Those who reject the gospel of
Christ will be tormented day and night, forever and ever, in hell.
Rudolf Steiner taught a doctrine similar to
purgatory - the heretical teaching of Roman Catholicism. And he taught
reincarnation which is nowhere to be found in God's word.
The conclusion of the matter is that you
cannot be a Christian and believe the false teachings of Rudolf Steiner.
Steiner's teachings contradict the sound doctrines of the Bible. You cannot
serve two masters (Matt. 6:24).
