Sure, those yoga classes at the Y might have cleared up that sciatica pain, but Christians beware, it’s nothing compared to the pain of eternal hellfire, according to Dr. R. Albert Mohler, Jr. of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary:
“Yoga begins and ends with an understanding of the body that is, to say the very least, at odds with the Christian understanding,” he writes. “Christians are not called to empty the mind or to see the human body as a means of connecting to and coming to know the divine. Believers are called to meditate upon the Word of God — an external Word that comes to us by divine revelation — not to meditate by means of incomprehensible syllables.”
Catholics have been warning about Eastern-style meditation since the ‘80s, but that should come as no surprise from a religion that practically requires a papal dispensation to avoid kneeling during Mass and infamously brought the world the Spanish Inquisition.
When one does try to reach out to the divine doing yoga, that call is apparently being misdirected to the wrong number. Could it be…..Satan?!
