How often do Christians have to be warned not to get involved with the ways of the world? Apparently as often as it takes…since the world doesn’t give up on shoving their “ways” in our faces and down our throats. What am I talking about? Here it is, the middle of November, 2016, and the beginning of winter in the United States. Our Internet homepages are full of recipes for “hearty, warming soups’, and all other manner of how to survive the coming winter. OK, that’s all well and good, as far as it goes….I do actually enjoy most of the tips, advice, recipes, and so on that lends a comforting touch to the season. Kind of like a cup of hot chocolate by the fireside in a comfy chair after coming inside from a blustering snowstorm. What irked me today is this, for the umpteenth time on the Internet, magazines, TV and just about every other advertising venue, once again, there it was…”How to Stay Well During the Winter Season”; included as usual, was the admonition to “meditate” your way to health during winter. Included in this were some proof positive (supposed), facts that meditation will help keep us healthy, winter, spring, summer and fall. This is absolute nonsense! First of all, most all Christians are aware that Satan can produce lying signs and wonders…but whatever he makes seem beneficial and “good”, he’s going to take away before it’s over, Including false healings. After all, he is the Master Liar and Thief of all time. The Bible says: ”
Jeremiah 10: 2 Thus saith the Lord, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.
Ok, if the Lord says not to do something, you can be sure there is a good reason to obey, and not do whatever it happens to be. In this case, Yoga and meditation are heathen, pagan practices; the are not from the Lord God.
All this said….please stop listening to the so-called health care professionals who keep urging us to do things contrary to the word of God, and His commandments.
