MattS AMTM June 2019 Part 24 (heresy and false teachings)
I would have thought this one was a “no brainer”, but, apparently not. Yoga has crept in everywhere, and seems to be acceptable in every level of society as a so called legitimate form of exercise. Back when I became a Christian in the 70’s (yup, I know), it would have been unthinkable to the Christians I associated with, to even consider doing Yoga, let alone Christian Yoga. The two words were mutually exclusive. Christian Yoga would have been a complete oxymoron.
It would seem in the last 40 years that Yoga and Christianity have in some way been blended, to be seen as acceptable. This is my opinion, but I could never see Yoga (being a Hindu religious practice) and Christianity being spoken as a blended term. I have always regarded Yoga as a Hindu practice, and as such to be avoided (especially by Christians).
So, it would be right to ask the first question, “What is Yoga?”
