    Demons are there nonetheless, whether you believe in them or not. . .

    My definition for perverted is the Biblical definition. Read Second Peter 2, and Jude.

    *still wondering why yoga-related stretching and breathing excercises are demonic*

    Many Christians do not believe that demons (if they exist) have any power over believers....so why do you worry so much Susan?

    Demons shmemons...this is stretching, breathing, exercise...I can't seem to make any connection to that and demonic activity no matter how hard I try.

    I know people who do yoga and it is very beneficial to their lives. I have one friend with back pain and she started beginners yoga and she feels that it is helping her greatly...no harm, no foul...

    Susan:

    Does controlling your breathing invite demons? Does stretching your body invite demons? Is putting your body into positions in warm-ups to a dance class that are identical to positions in yoga inviting demons or is it only inviting demons when you are in a yoga class?

    Do you think that demons can possess people without them knowing it? If so, how then do you know that you, yourself, are not possessed?

    Please answer my questions.

    Personally I would not touch any kind of Eastern Meditation  or anything associated with it. I've known of too many who start out innocently and then graduate into other things...

    Here's an interesting link on the subject:

    let us reason . org / NAM1 . htm

    (for some reason it won't let me post the link--just take out the spaces). This guy goes through the facts and history of Yoga and says what he thinks.

    It sorta makes sense, but I have the same questions. I mean, its just stretching to me...

    Man, I love Indian food. Who would have guessed lamb, goat's milk and spices would go together so deliciously?

    Hi,

    To the original poster,

    If you are a Christian and are in doubt about Yoga, just be Bearean and pray about it and hold it up against the word of God.

    We all know what the Bible sez about practicing the customs of other lands -- Yes, he's not terribly Poloitically correct, is he?

    Everyone has an opinion and that will just confuse you. Bring it up to the guy upstairs. If you have peace, do it. If not, don't.

    If you want way too much info on Yoga's roots, go here (But, I warn you, you won't like it) www.ankerberg.com

    Well, which lands customs are you practicing exactly? I mean, if you are in the US you don´t really have customs, because they all got important from the nations your ancestors came from. Which practices are the "true" ones? French? English? German? Belgian? Scandinavian? African?

    I'm a born-again Christian who practices the yoga exercises. I have a bad back and the exercises help strengthen by back. I don't do the mediation part of yoga.....only the excercises. You may want to buy a cd or vhs and see if the exercises are for you.

    Other lands = Pagan lands. Look it up in the Bible. According to the Bible, God wants us to love everybody but not embrace their belief system.

    So a better question than "Is Yoga demonic?", would be "Does God want me practicing Yoga?"

    According to scriptures, I believe the answer is ..... AHH< you should look it up yourself

    Ok, for me US, Canada, Mexico, African nations, Asian nations, South American nations all are pagan lands, because they aren´t my own...

    Pagan means believing other gods than the God of Isreal. America is supposedly a Judeo-Christian nation. Just look at our money (Freemason symbols aside)

    The Isrealites were told not to screw around with the practices of other nations.

    I don't see any Judeo-Christian references on our money, just a monotheistic one.
