1. Well said Jen. And not only does contemplative prayer make one feel good, it makes one vulnerable to demonic activity. This is something most don’t seem to understand (that it’s serious and dangerous business).

    ‘……we wonder in dismay when the church (namely, its leaders and pastors) will begin to take the contemplative issue seriously and warn about it rather than aiding and abetting it.’

    In this visible 2 Tim age of self everything, leaders and pastors further feed into the pit of me, myself and I.
    Not all of course, but the church growth movement of Warren et al, skirts anything that would unseat people. Contemplatives fall into the same category of making YOU feel good. If you’ve never met the risen Christ….. ‘Did not our heart burn within us while He talked with us on the road, and while He opened the Scriptures to us?”
    Luke24:32 The message from the pulpit each week should convict some area of our lives to correct, not words that consistently wrap us in warm quilts with a pat on the head and an ice cream cone as we leave the sanctuary.
