While it’s true that most yoga positions are designed to be positions of worship to Hindu gods, some Christians find it hard to believe that there’s any danger in practicing the moves when it’s just being done as an exercise. But is it just exercise?
For one reason or another many people have at one point in their lives experienced a season of "church hunting," searching for a church to attend. Some have even been searching for a few years now. It makes me seriously wonder a few things.
There's a disturbing and dangerous trend that I see in a lot of churches today. Not all churches, but many, especially the smaller to mid-size churches, particularly within so-called "Black churches." These churches and the pastors in them seem to leave little room or tolerance for what I call paradigm breakers, persons who have ministries outside of their local church.
The interesting things that are done to scriptures commonly used to support a "thou shalt tithe" doctrine are actually quite abusive. These abuses stem from either an ignorance of basic interpretive rules, or a perceived need to manipulate people.
