Look if Satan comes down to earth and teaches you how to make Fire does that mean that Fire is Satanic ?

Re: so is yoga satanic or not?
well i just keep reading about how the practice of yoga, or any type of meditation for that matter, strives to empty/clear your mind and open your third eye, which allow the devil entry, to that emptied space

the positions are positions in which you worship hindu gods

sounds like bollocks yet i'm scared

That alone is reason enough.

Yoga, per all yogis, was designed to prepare the body for mind altering meditation. Every yoga posture is dedicated to a particular Hindu god. It's only in the west that it is sold to the wayward descendants of Christian forefathers as "exercise" and as a "health benefit". They had to do it as the sudden swamping of schools, leisure facilities, medicine and psychiatry suddenly pushing hinduism may have raised alarms. So they simply took it and gabe it a new package. With a big red bow on it.

That should tell you something about how deception works.

Stretching doesn't require Hindu postures. Therefore, why are the "stretching for health" programmes using Hindu prostrate worship positions? Come on people, use critical thinking here. Stretching ones muscles can be done in a multiple of ways which require no Hindu positions designed to interrupt blood supplies preparing the mind to start Hindu meditation.

Re: so is yoga satanic or not?
FORGET THE FACTS, JUST DO IT

The number of people today, including Christians, that are involved with yoga is absolutely astonishing. Yoga, once considered by the western world to be a Hindu spiritual practice for attaining of occult enlightenment (Self-Realization), has now been thoroughly integrated into the western world—and into compromised churches. In fact, in many churches today, to proclaim about yoga what it really is - an eastern occult practice rooted in paganism - is tantamount to committing linguistic suicide. Calling yoga by its true colours and telling people what it is really designed for is simply not “politically correct” anymore. It seems that people no longer value how a common dictionary defines yoga. Furthermore, defining terms, by definition and in context, is even considered “unloving” because people get offended when they are told the truth. The western standard for right and wrong, even in many churches, has become, “if it looks good and feels spiritual, just do it.” This mentality has gone so far off the scale in some camps that people are willing, when presented with irrefutable factual evidence of what yoga is, does, and can lead to, say “never mind the warnings from occult literature, never mind the destroyed lives, never mind the physical, mental, psychological and spiritual damage, we want our yoga.”

CHRISTIAN YOGA MINISTRIES?

Even more daunting than the documented warnings and hazards of yoga is the fact that many Christians are teaching “Christian Yoga”. It seems that relabeling yoga as "Yoga for Christians" has given people the green light to bow down and “Do yoga for Yahweh”. One wonders though which Jesus these people have come to “worship.” A Jesus who allows Christians to integrate pagan occultism into Christian worship is not the Jesus of Scripture. “For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him” (2 Cor. 11:4). People all over the place are buying into yoga through “Christian Yoga ministries”. The following is a sample listing of some of these “ministries”. Christian Yoga Exercise; Stretched Out In Worship; Yahweh Yoga; Holy Yoga; Body Prayer; Christ-Centered Yoga”, Son Light Yoga”, “New Day Yoga”, “Yoga From a Christian Perspective”, “Bringing the Light of Christ to the Practice of Yoga; Trinity Yoga; Yoga for all of Humanity; Yoga Devotion; Prayer of the Breath and Body; Grounded in Yoga; Be Still Yoga; etc. The following is from the Holy Yoga website:

Holy Yoga was created to introduce physical worship of the Lord through prayer, breath work and movement to all seekers and believers in Jesus Christ, regardless of denomination...The purpose of the ministry is to introduce people to yoga as a form of collective (mind, body and spirit) worship…as well as certifying teachers through the registered yoga school (RYS) of Holy Yoga…to facilitate Christ-centered classes in their individual churches, studios, and community spaces....Our sole purpose at Holy yoga is to introduce people to a unique and powerful yoga experience centered on out Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. To deepen the experience, Holy Yoga classes are practiced to contemporary motivational Christian music...Yoga is NOT a religion; it is a practice of mind and body control. When led by scripture, prayer and worship poses; it is a practice that encourages patience and cultivates an understanding of what God can manifest in our physical and emotional bodies. [1]

Along with this “Christian Yoga” ministry description is a long list of Scripture verses that are being conveniently misused to justify a “Christian Yoga Ministry”.

FILLED WITH EASTERN WAYS

Like the house of Jacob (Jacob’s descendents-Israel) in Isaiah’s day (Isaiah 2:6-9), the people rebelled against God and God had to discipline them. It is not that God no longer loved the people, but the people of Judah became like the pagan nations surrounding them. God’s people became as superstitious as the people in the East – they were following the practices of the Assyrian Empire. The people were also engaging in divination like the Philistines. Isaiah cried out to God,

For You have forsaken Your people, the house of Jacob, because they are filled with eastern ways; they are soothsayers like the Philistines, and they are pleased with the children of foreigners (Isaiah 2:6).

So too today, compromising Christians have turned Eastward and are doing what |Hindu holy men do—yoga! Compromised Christians are putting into practice yogic philosophy through breath control techniques (pranayama) and ancient [and even trendy new] yogic postures (asanas). Many are even doing the “S?rya namask?ra (Salute to the Sun). According to Wikipedia,

…the Sun Salutation is a 20th century yogic invention of Bhawanrao Pantpritinidhi, the Rajah of Aundh… [2]

….Proponents who use S?rya namask?ra as part of the modern yoga tradition prefer to perform it at sunrise, which the orthodox consider to be the most 'spiritually favourable' time of the day. [3]

Regarding the abomination of saluting the sun and giving reverence to the creation rather than the Creator (Rom. 1:18-25) , the prophet Ezekiel addressed this issue in his own day (Ezek. 8). The priests of Israel, instead of crying out to God for mercy on behalf of the idolatrous people, were themselves bowing down to the sun in the East. The priests had their own backs turned on God (in God’s temple) and they were bowing in submission and worship to the sun. This was and still is today an expression of contempt for God and is a direct violation of God’s command in Deuteronomy. 4:19. Ezekiel 8:15-18 has this to say:

Then said he unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations than these. And he brought me into the inner court of the LORD's house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of the LORD, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east. Then he said unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? Is it a light thing to the house of Judah that they commit the abominations which they commit here? for they have filled the land with violence, and have returned to provoke me to anger: and, lo, they put the branch to their nose. Therefore will I also deal in fury: mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: and though they cry in mine ears with a loud voice, yet will I not hear them. (Ezekiel 8:15-18)

 Quoting: MayerAmschelRothschild


[link to en.wikipedia.org]

"emptiness" is often misunderstood as being nihilistic:


A nihilistic interpretation of the concept of voidness (or of mind-only) is not, by any means, a merely hypothetical possibility; it consistently was adopted by Buddhism's opponents, wherever the religion spread, nor have Buddhists themselves been immune to it...
But this is not a correct understanding:
[V]oidness does not mean nothingness, but rather that all things lack intrinsic reality, intrinsic objectivity, intrinsic identity or intrinsic referentiality. Lacking such static essence or substance does not make them not exist —- it makes them thoroughly relative.

Heres how it works on young people (secular public schools)

Teachers push yoga (and even refer to it as such) as a health practice without religious aspects.
Then once they do it a few times and ultimately feel the beneficial aspects of #cough# stretching and breathing exercises, they go right to the source (yoga) to learn more.

Its underhanded to say the least. If you want to feel good, EXERCIZE

"All things are lawful, but not all things are beneficial"

- 1 Corinthians 10:23

So Yoga is 'lawful', and stretching is beneficial.

Next inane question?

Note: did you know that Paul (who wrote a majority of the NT) studied Greco-Roman paganism? I wonder how that compares to hearing babbling pagan chanting that nobody understands?
