    I read the article and I think the way she is using lust isn't the way Jesus used lust. I think Jesus was talking about a desire to commit audelry in Mat.5;28

    Or the desire to commit yoga.
    Yoga is just practice for sex with demons.

    Yep.
    Why would they lie down with their legs apart in the air and do all those breathing exercises?
    Think about it.
    Its a hindu practice, plus the ones who are higher in the yoga (which means to yoke someone) like in the ashrams advocate free sex with other people, like those gurus. People who dont know this are a bit naive.

    Some people practice yoga as a semi-religious practice, yes. But it is not to do with having relations with demons.

    In any case, most people who do yoga do it for exercise and other health benefits such as improved flexibility. Yoga is not evil or wrong, it's just what you make of it. :)

    But anyway, this thread isn't about yoga, it's abut wearing leggings.

    Maybe you should look into it instead of settling for terribly biased assumptions as if you don't have access to the entire Internet. If I want to know why, I won't "think about it." I'll actually find out why.

    I would say yoga is wrong, and very deceptive about what its ultimate goal is...union with brahmin, the hindu gods.

    No. Just no.

    I'm curious, though. Do you actually think that yoga could lead to people having sex with demons, or do you put this in the same category as ouija boards?

    Dont be unequally yoked with demon is what the bible says and I would take that as a warning. If you not a christian I suppose it wouldnt bother you. But I am.

    Unequally yoked with a demon? Isn't that Bible verse about who you shouldn't marry?
    Avoiding yoga and sex with demons was never ever part of my Christian education and upbringing. :confused: My Catholic school actually promoted yoga...

    So many delicious responses……. but I'd probably get banned. On the other hand, it might be worth it. But, again, I might feel wrong about responding; it's so simple it could be wrong-full deck or not?. yikes! the quandary

    Nowhere in the Bible does it say to never be 'unequally yoked with a demon'. ...Period. The end. Case closed. Over and out.

    Certainly there are many people who practice yoga for the 'spiritual' aspect of it and mediation. And as a Christian, I would never recommend yoga for those particular purposes to fellow Christians. But yoga in itself, as in the exercise and stretching, is wonderfully beneficial and poses no harm, spiritual or otherwise, to anyone.

    I attend gym regularly in order to prevent injuries. Now back to the topic of leggings, or mini shorts that most women use in conjunction with skimpy tank shirts and stuff. I find that sometimes they are too distracting. For me, I find women who wear loose shorts and loose shirts are more attractive than women who use leggings/minishorts with skimpy tank shirts. May I know what is the sole reason why women wear those in a coed gym, if not, to attract opposite mate? I know that they can be comfortable, but I've noticed that many women who wear mini shorts, often adjust them to avoid showing too much. So why not use a loose shorts which is usually longer and covers more. On the flip side, men, come on, I don't want to see you peacocking all the time with skimpy shirt, showing off your bulging biceps and muscles, causing some of us to feel intimidated. Going to the gym are for exercising, not a meat market where you can find a date or whatever. I go there to prevent future injuries, doing rehab as I have chronic knee injuries often. Sometimes I find it irritating to see that people go to the gym with the sole purpose of "peacocking" hoping to nab a date or whatever. So both men, and women, need to dress properly, and go to the gym to exercise, and I don't want to see any flaunting. Thats my opinion.

    You'd have to ask each individual woman. It could be that she stopped at Walmart on the way there and grabbed what she saw. Maybe it's the opposite and she splurged on the workout clothes that are the most ergonomically designed. Maybe she didn't want to go shopping at all, so she's using clothes that she wears under other clothes, or clothes that she doesn't mind getting sweaty in because they're old.

    Or, maybe some are trying to attract people. I don't see a problem with that.
    I'm a bit confused about why you're complaining about the skimpy/tight clothing being too distracting if you know that you're more attracted to the loose clothing.
