Well we endured the very popular “The Bible” TV miniseries, and now “The Son of God” movie. I wonder how many evangelicals have been deceived into believing Roma Downey has become a born again Christian. Truth is, Downey is still a New Ager, in spite of many public statements by her and hubby Mark Burnett that they are Christians.
It angers me when New Agers are so deceptive, deluding born again Christians into thinking they are Christians. (Oprah Winfrey and other New Agers are also trying to deceive us in this way.) Following is some of the recent info I have gathered so far on Downey.

In the above March 2014 magazine, Downey said, “I think we all have a responsibility to see God in each other. That’s how I’ve raised my children – that no matter whose face they look into, they’re looking into the face of God, who’s in all of us.”

Other New Age buzzwords used in the above article about Downey:
“light, peace and happiness”
“doing work that spreads the message of God’s love”
“rituals she relies on to stay centered”
[candlelight] “promotes mindfulness”
[I light a candle and it] “calls in the light”
Also, in the article Downey says she is reading the book The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman. Hoffman sounds New Age to me. Even if Hoffman isn’t New Age, Downey apparently likes her occultic themes. Check out this info from Wikipedia:
“Many of her works fall into the genre of magic realism and contain elements of magic, irony, and non-standard romances and relationships.”

Apparently Downey is a darling of the following yoga website, which lists many of her online video interviews about “The Son of God” movie.
