The Devil wears Danskin
Christians, sound the alarm, for your local yoga studio is little more than the nearest portal to Hell. From Prayer Warriors Agape Press, naturally:
Christian author Dave Hunt, co-founder of the Oregon-based ministry, The Berean Call, has written a new book called Yoga and the Body of Christ. In it, he contends that yoga is a spiritually dangerous practice designed to expose people to demonic influences.Surprised you haven't heard about demonic possession at the yoga studio? Another MSM cover-up!
While conducting research for the book, Hunt says he studied the roots of yoga and interviewed many people who have practiced it. As a result of his investigation, he says he has concluded that the techniques employed in yoga are not designed primarily to promote health but to put participants in a mental state similar to that of hypnosis.
And it is not those critical or skeptical of yoga who are confirming these conclusions, the author points out. "These are the yogis, now. These are the people who developed it," he insists. "These are the people who practiced it, and they warned [that] you must always have your guru present when you get into this state of consciousness, because you could be taken over by some evil entity."
The elements of yoga are sometimes adapted to meet the needs of non-religious practitioners and those of other faiths, including Christians. But Hunt insists there is no way to modify this inherently spiritual practice to make it acceptable for Christians.Better yet, why not just stay home in front of the tv? Every time I protest my gym, I am shocked at the immodest lows to which the clientele sinks. Lycra is truly Satan's textile of choice.
"If you want to benefit yourself physically," the author says, "then do exercises that were designed for that. Do not get into things that were designed for self-realization and to 'realize that you are God.'" He also urges Christians, "If you want to do some exercises, please don't call it yoga, because as soon as you do, you've put a certain connotation on it."
The North American studio alliance estimates that as many as 30 million people are practicing yoga in the United States alone.A nation at risk... how soon until the Gates of Hell are flung open and these 30 million people begin doing the bidding of their Dark Masters? Judging by my bus ride this morning, it's already happening. Praise Him!
