In the New Age dogma, being a lightworker implies that a person is themselves the light. Those who buy into the New Age philosophies believe the power of the universe is within themselves. They also feel any good in the world resides within their own soul. While it might sound nice to be light, this is contradictory to what Christians believe as they know that God, in fact, is the light that makes up the goodness within anyone and any goodness a human might have is from the creator God.
The featured video goes into more detail on the topic, explaining why it’s a good possibility that what is now considered a New Age term was likely derived from Biblical sources as there are many instances in the Bible that talk about Christians being light in the world and being workers for God. The video also explains more about what it means to be a Christian Lightworker in general.
As a way to further communicate the importance of being workers of the light as Christians, consider the following scriptures:
Matthew 5:14 “You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hidden.”
This scripture explains how Christians are the light of God within the world. God’s light shines from within a Christian like a city on a hill.
Ephesians 5:8 “For you were once in darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light.”
Before coming to Christ, Christians were once in darkness like everyone else. This is more evidence that “light” comes from God, not a human’s soul.
Matthew 9:37-38 “Then he said to his disciples, ‘the harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.’”
This scripture explains the need for workers in Christ’s field, which is of course the world or unbelievers. Believers are to work for God, sharing God’s light, which is within them, with others thus becoming Christian lightworkers.
