Caryl Matrisciana on Yoga
What am I saying then? That an idol is anything, or what is offered to idols is anything? Rather, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice they sacrifice to demons and not to God, and I do not want you to have fellowship with demons. 1 Corinthians 10:19-20
A very interesting Hindu Apologist (one who defends the practice of Yoga) linked to this video and agreed! Hindus are upset with the idea you can do Yoga separate from Yoking in the poses of the pantheon of Hindu gods. They see divinity in everything like most Pagan Religions. As a Christian, we are Holy and Holy means separate. Today is a key teaching in New Age to be separate (holy) is anathema to leaders of the New Age. It in a nutshell is joining to a spirit that is not from God. (here is an excerpt below)
Yogis Confirm: There is no Yoga without Hinduism
Shri Rajiv Malhotra, an scholar who is devoting his life to defend Dharma and whom I follow, has just linked in his official facebook a video of a knowledgeable Christian lady from which I have taken the title of this post. This lady, like some other knowledgeable people from other religions, have perfectly understood that Yoga is incompatible with Christianity because Yoga is Hinduism!. Of course I do not agree with the biased view of Yoga as opening doors for the entrance of demons, and kundalini as the king of the demons. :-), but at least she has got the point that they are contradictory and mostly incompatible. As she says, in other words “for exercise as a Christian, you better do stretching or tennis, do not open doors that Yoga opens to realms that a Christian would not like to visit.” -Hindu Source
Here is the image from the article we linked to above from very knowledgeable practitioners of Hinduism and the practice of Yoga. Let’s examine the connections that we find everywhere in occult practices from Witchcraft to the New Age. You will note a serpent giving knowledge on the head (Genesis 3) seated in the Lotus position meditating with the sun god (Nimrod) and the Crescent (Semeramis- moon god) who was a prostitute began the Pagan Religions & Priesthood of Mystery Babylon and all the false religions that have followed since. The names have changed, but the worship of demons (fallen angels) of idols is most prevalent today. As Christians can we really try to make Yoga Christian? Go to the bottom of the page of our Occult Expose Landing Page. You will find hours of video and articles exposing a dark agenda to deceive unsuspecting people everywhere. Only the Holy Bible gives us the wisdom to see what the god of this world is doing. (2 Corinthians 1-7)
Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not; But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God. But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

Lamb & Lion Ministries was founded in 1980 as a non-denominational, independent ministry. The Ministry does not seek to convert people to any particular church. Rather, it seeks to lift up Jesus and draw people to Him as Lord and Savior.
The Ministry was established for the purpose of proclaiming the soon return of Jesus. We do not believe it is possible to know the date when Jesus will return. But we do believe it is possible to know the season of the Lord’s return, and it is our conviction that we are living in that season.
The message of the Ministry is directed at both believers and non-believers. To the unsaved, the Ministry says, “Flee from the wrath that is to come by fleeing into the loving arms of Jesus.” To believers, the Ministry says, “Commit yourselves to holiness as you await the appearance of your Blessed Hope.”
We believe that Jesus is the only hope for the world today. He is the Gospel — the “Good News.”
We believe the Church, as expressed through the local congregation, is the basic unit of God’s plan for the proclamation of the Gospel and the discipling of believers. Lamb & Lion Ministries exists to serve the Church in its effort to win souls for Christ and to disciple those who accept the Lord.
