MADISON, Wisc., Nov. 9 /Christian Newswire/ — Olympic ministry Lay Witnesses for Christ announced that ten-time Olympic medalist Carl Lewis would lead the ministry’s efforts at the 2012 London Olympics. He was appointed Chairman of the Athletic Executive Committee for the London Olympics. He is also on the board of directors for Lay Witnesses, a Texas ministry.

Dr. Sam Mings, President of Lay Witnesses, says, “I know of no one individual – including the great evangelists through the years who have been seen, heard or written about regarding their faith in Jesus Christ (than Carl Lewis)!”

However, during his athletic career, Lewis was involved with cult leader Sri Chinmoy. On Chinmoy’s Website, they say Chinmoy “conducted twice-weekly peace meditations at the United Nations for more than 35 years.”

Also, the site says Chinmoy “originated the World Harmony Run — a global Olympic-style torch relay that crosses every continent — and established some 100 meditation centres worldwide.” This run is used to promote worldwide peace.

Sri Chinmoy was a promoter of the New Age Movement with leanings toward Hinduism, which promotes pantheism, yoga, and other false teachings.  Click here to read this entire news release.
