Q. What do you know about A Course in Miracles?   

A. The teachings of The Miracle Distribution Center (A Course in Miracles) directly contradict the teachings of Scripture. This New Age deception teaches no need to REPENT to "accept the Christ within" - because SIN is just "a mistake" and shouldn't be viewed as deserving of "guilt and punishment." The focus is on Self, not God. 

Scripture repeatedly warns that in the last days there would be false teachers: Deuteronomy 13:1-3; Matthew 5:19; 7:15; 15:2-20; 16:12; 23:2-33; 24:23-26; Mark 8:15; 13:21-23; Luke 11:38-52; Acts 15:11, 24; 20:28; Galatians 1:7; I Timothy 1:3-7; 6:3-5; II Timothy 3:13-14; 4:34; Titus 1:10, 11; 3:10, 11; Hebrews 13:9; II Peter 2:1; II John 7-10; Jude 1:4; Revelation 2:14, 15

The following quotes are from the web site of The Miracle Distribution Center (A Course in Miracles). This FALSE TEACHING is reproduced here ONLY as a means of exposing its ERROR:

"Sin is regarded as lack of love, or as a mistake calling for
correction and love, rather than for guilt and punishment." 

"In the context of the Course, "forgiveness" means recognizing
that what you thought your brother did to you has not occurred.
Forgiveness does not pardon sins and make them real. It sees 
that there was no sin."

"...our inner guide, who will direct our thoughts, telling us exactly
what to do, and directing all our efforts. To be truly effective, we
must learn to rely on our own internal teacher rather than looking
for help outside ourselves." 

"As we are led from the world of the ego to the world of love, our
perception of ourselves as separated persons is corrected, and we
remember our higher, or true Self. We remember we were created
by God as His Child, and we are enabled to accept the Christ 
within, and to see with Christ's vision. We recognize our oneness
with God, our Self, and all our brothers, and are able, finally, to
'teach only love,' which is our true function as Children of God."
