The Bible shows that God detests pagan practices. For example, He frequently admonished the ancient Jews against engaging in the pagan practices of the neighboring cultures, such as idol worship, human sacrifice, channeling through mediums, and even eating certain foods (Exodus, Deuteronomy, and Acts). So, based on that knowledge, are you comfortable practising Yoga? Maybe you all should just seek out scripture and pray about it. Let the Holy Spirit be your guide :)

Comment on Is Yoga Demonic? by skeewee http://www.yogabasics.com/connect/is-yoga-demonic/#comment-5076 Wed, 27 May 2015 21:56:06 +0000 http://localhost/wordpress5/?p=1167#comment-5076 Hi,
Yes, that is very evil that someone claiming to be a Christian would do this. However, this is not a biblical practice. The early Church did not preach or advocate violence. Read the New Testament: it was the early Church that was stoned to death, imprisoned, beaten, and burned (much of like what is being done to Christians today). Why would they have Believers do the same? Jesus taught to turn the other cheek…

Comment on Is Yoga Demonic? by skeewee http://www.yogabasics.com/connect/is-yoga-demonic/#comment-5075 Wed, 27 May 2015 21:51:10 +0000 http://localhost/wordpress5/?p=1167#comment-5075 As a Christian, I was taught that Yoga goes against Christian beliefs and biblical practices. According to 2 Corinthians 10:5, we are to “(Cast) down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ”. Yoga clearly goes agains this teaching. Demons don’t present themselves with horns and a tail. 2 Corinthians 11:14 tells us that Satan “disguises himself as an angel of light.” Of course we will want nothing to do with any of his demons unless they are presented in a nice and neat little package. Yoga also teaches to be in tune with yourself, but the Bible teaches us to “die to self.” In Luke 9:23, Jesus tells us to die daily and take up the cross to follow Him; Paul tells us in Galatians 2:20 that we are crucified with Christ and therefore we no longer live, but have Christ living inside of us; and Galatians 5:24 says that those who belong in Christ Jesus have “crucified the flesh, with it’s passions and desires.” Once I learned the meaning behind those poses, I chose to steer clear of any Yoga activities. Also consider Romans 10:14: “and how will they hear…unless someone tells them?”…Now, you know.

Comment on Getting High Before Yoga Class by skeewee http://www.yogabasics.com/connect/getting-high-before-yoga-class/#comment-5074 Wed, 27 May 2015 20:49:18 +0000 http://localhost/wordpress5/?p=1150#comment-5074 Just because God made weed definitely does not mean you need to smoke it. He created poisonous snakes, as well, but you’re not going to wrap one around your neck (unless you are high). He made all animals, too, but even told the ancient Jews that not all of the animals were created for the purposes of consuming them. Get real.

I agree with you. But also do not expect from opportunists the recognition for benefiting from features of Hindu culture. I also like the ‘honey and not mention the beehive or the bees’ analogy :)
