Is There A Place For Yoga In The Body Of Christ???
Reader should Christians do yoga? The Eastern practice is deeply spiritual for some – rooted in the Hindu religion – while for others it's simply a way to keep fit.
For some believers though, it's an anti-Christian doorway to the demonic, and it certainly shouldn't be practiced in churches.
Once upon a time I was completely ok with yoga, till I came face to face with the "other side" while in a class. The teacher had the class worship the elephant god. I started praying and singing praises in my head and couldn't leave that class fast enough. We tend to forget that the poses are actually ways to worship other gods. We need to be discerning. I support this young man ministry and believe it's much needed in the body of Christ.
This past weekend The Soul Healing Retreat, one of the first of it kind took place in Biloxi Mississippi and to most of the attendees it was very informative and helpful. Anyways, Pastor Joshua Smith posted the above pic to Facebook and y'all know the rest of the story, the saints came for him. What are your thoughts should Christians be practicing yoga, considering the questionable Hindu underpinnings?
