balanced in mind and body and attain self-enlightenment. Many people, including Christians, engage in yoga to improve their physical fitness and reduce stress. Unfortunately, however, most people are unaware of the Eastern religious principles that are foundational to the disciplines of yoga and its kinship to New Age.
What makes yoga so dangerous is it's ill motive is never set forth in it's naked deformity, Yoga is seductively dressed, so as, by its outward form, to make it appear more true than truth itself.
Discerning believers will reject the yoga philosophy for what it is: a futile emphasis of self. The Bible is the exclusive means of meditation for God's people (Joshua 1:8). The Bible is not a catalog of multiple options. The Bible is God's provision for direction that is moved by eternal values. Yet, so many believers feel very uncertain. Many feel this way because they are nurtured by circumstances that leave them suspect of God's leading. The only direction God demands of us is to trust Him. All other pursuits will rob us of a tenacious desire to obey God and leave us vulnerable to the wiles of the devil.
The clear evidence that a Believer is led by the Holy Spirit will be evidenced by a decisive act of trust characterized by pure obedience to the will of God based on sound knowledge of God's Word.
Our only sufficiency necessary to expose the danger of yoga and it's teachings is the Word of God under the direct influence of the Holy Spirit. The highway of reality is the Bible. The Holy Spirit will never direct us contrary to the Word of God. Thus the fundamental concern for the believer is to understand the Word of God as the only means that makes life meaningful. The Bible is the only resolve that instills a pure ambition for the glory of God. Hiding God's Word in our hearts is the only way to be discerning of God's will.
