Rev. Dr. John Rodgers (1937-)

New Age teacher and author.
Dr. Rodgers has written numerous books and booklets, but only one is currently in print, his trail-blazing book, New Age Bible. Some sources are selling the first edition for more than $300.
Rev. Dr. John E. Rodgers, OM 3, ThD
Three decades ago, Rev. John Rodgers launched a New Age seminary because he found people to be “good-hearted, well-meaning ‘eager-norants,’ � excited believers woefully lacking information about religion and spirituality.
Nov. 1 marked the 44th anniversary of the Alpha Book Center the oldest metaphysical store in Phoenix. The store supports the New Age Community Church and the Omega Directory, publisher of the oldest metaphysical newspaper in the nation. Regarded as the Valley’s authority on New Age, Rodgers fiercely defends religious liberty, but says, “Most people don’t know their church’s doctrines, and most people don’t care.� His monthly tabloid newspaper covers a broad swath of belief.
Rodgers, 73, a native of Minneapolis, attended a Methodist church as a boy. Then his family joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He did a mission in the Pacific Northwest and continued with the church into his 20s. After he moved to Arizona in 1965, he says, “They kicked me out because I was going by Mormon scripture, and no church goes by its own scripture,� Rodgers says with a laugh. When he tried to rejoin, the bishop said he was glad to have Rodgers back but didn’t want him talking in class anymore. “I wasn’t derogatory, just informative,� Rodgers says. But if he couldn’t talk, he wasn’t going back. “ The Book of Mormon is a wonderful book,� he says. “It’s got really good stories, teachings and Mormon precepts.� From there, Rodgers took a metaphysics class in Tempe. “That is what I had been waiting for all along.� At the time, he worked at Al’s Bookstore in Phoenix and started a metaphysical section, complete with tarot cards.
“We teach what a human being is, what the universe is, what God is, what is really going on,â€� says Rodgers, who urges moderation in religious practices. “Jesus talked about the straight and narrow way. Don’t become too extreme. Crystals have certain powers. (Computer chips) are based on crystals, but I really don’t believe that crystals will make anyone float in the air.â€� In Omega Directory, Rodgers wrote that fundamentalism always fails. “Though we must continue our struggle, Christian fundamentalism will not be defeated by the strategic, targeted opposition of people like us, so much as it will eventually self-destruct from the weight of its own madness. … I oppose fundamentalism because I worship truth â€" the facts, reality, the God of gods.â€� Rodgers is author of “New Age Bible: The Hidden Truth Revealed,â€� which defines New Age and explores the relationship of such diverse faiths as Buddhism, Christianity, Wicca, Hinduism and Judaism. He believes religion has evolved to reflect the evolution of civilization and the growth of human consciousness. He scoffs at conspiracies, says skepticism is healthy and the truth “makes sense.â€�
"Rev. Dr. Rodgers is a hell of a talker, brusque, without guile. His family were Mormon converts from Minnesota who settled in Arizona to be nearer Zion. Because they couldn't afford to buy a home in Utah. "He was active in the church from an early age, and his mission as a young man took him to Oregon and Washington, then back to Arizona. "One day te Bishop made an authoritative pronouncement that Rodgers did not feel was supported by Mormon scripture. "So I asked his authority and he said The Bishop's Handbook and I discovered there was this book of scripture that people like me didn't know anything about." "Rodgers continued insistence that the Church abide by the revelations of founder Prophet Joseph Smith riled the local authorities.
"Later on, Rodgers and a small group of friends set up a New Age church.
"In 1992, feeling that no one else had the answers to the nation's problems, John Rodgers ran as an independent candidate for the presidency of the United States of America on the following platform:
