The Truthergirls had Sevan Bomar on their show during which the Truthergils (a “Christian” of sort) attempted to reach out an olive branch in asserting that certain things like chakras are not necessarily occult or Easter mysticism.
Conversely, Sevan sought to discredit traditional Christianity. He seeks to read his particular and peculiar retake on things into “real” Christianity, which he identifies with Gnosticism, while concluding that traditional Christianity is “lower on the ladder” having not reached the lofty heights of his own spiritual attainment.

Also, he invents things such as that the Bible states, "With one eye open you light up the whole body" which he then takes to mean “the third eye”—this is a very popular view within certain circles.
However, the Bible states no such thing but rather states:
The lamp of the body is the eye.
If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light.
But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness.
If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great [is] that darkness!
—Matthew 6:22 and Luke 11:34
Some translate “good” as “single” because the Greek word haplous appears to come from a word that refers to union. The reference is to simple, single, whole, sound (as in healthy).
And so a statement of obvious fact, such as that you can tell by looking at somebody whether they are healthy or not (bags under the eyes, bloodshot eyes, glaucoma, etc. are obvious signs), we get the interpretation of “Third eye abilities” which even if the text did literally refer to “one eye open” could not be born out by the immediate nor greater context (not grammatical context, not cultural or historical context).
He is attempting to, as noted within the show, “fit it in” yet, it does not fit.
In other words, the Bible contains a greater context and there is nothing anywhere in the Bible about activating the third eye. This is why they must read into one single very an entire doctrine: this is illogical and against hermeneutical principles as it is taking a text out of context to make a pretext for a pooftext.
This is all why so may Christians shy away, at the very least, from concepts such as chakras because people such as Sevan Bomar begin with something truthful like that human bodies run on electricity and end up seeking to besmirch Christianity and elevating humanity to some form of godhood.
For example, Sevan notes that chakras have their “down side” but that if you just stick with it you can, essentially, engage in necromancy.
This guy is big trouble particularly because he thinks that he knows what he is talking about because he is confident because he has had “experiences.”
He also blunders with regards to Eve having eaten an “apple.” He chose the apple because he is able to read some esoteric/occult meaning into it. Well, there is nothing in the Bible about Eve having eaten an “apple” but that this does not stop Sevan from taking this falsity and build his fallacious point upon it—something to do with cutting an apple in half and seeing that there is a pentagram within it.
He also references the time when people thought that the Earth was flat in order to make a point about updating our knowledge—in order words, taking his assertions as some sort of neo-gospel.
However, there was no time in history when people thought that the world was flat, this is a myth concocted by secularists to make Christians look foolish. Even the anti-Christian agnostic Stephen Jay Gould debunked the flat Earth myth.

He also claims that humans are sometimes born with tails. The following is from a modern embryology textbook:
Rarely a caudal appendage is found at birth. Such structures are of varied origin (some are teratomata); they practically never contain skeletal elements and are in no sense ‘tails.’ Projections that contain skeletal elements are caused by a dorsal bending of the coccyx, do not contain more vertebrae than normal, and have nothing to do with ‘atavism’ [tendency to revert to ancestral type].
—O’Rahilly, R. and Müller, F., Human Embryology & Teratology, Second Edition, Wiley-Liss, 1996
He also that the “de” in “demon” means “divided” and also “diamond” and so “demon means divided man.”
Apparently, “mon” means “man” (perhaps, but only in Jamaican parlance). From this he determines that demons do not exist as spiritual entities which are fallen angels but are mere manifestations of unresolved human, personal, issue.
In what language(s), exactly, does “de” and “mon” mean what he claims?
This is just scratching the surface of a show that was in dire need of discernment and requests for quotations, citations and much more than mere assertions.
There are very many modern day promulgators of New Age Pagan occult spirituality and what is called for in response is discernment and demands for facts and not fast pace attempts to tie together a large array of disconnected assertions.
