In January of 2011 Lighthouse Trails stunned Bible believing Christians with its report on Rick Warren’s selection of three Eastern/new age meditation proponents to help with his weight loss program, The Daniel Plan (READ). But promotion of anti-biblical meditation has remained (READ).
Now this video of Dr. Daniel Amen can also be seen on the Saddleback Church Daniel Plan site. On Week 22: Minding Men’s Health–Be a Better Man, Dad, or Husband, we can link HERE and watch Dr. Amen state, “Meditation fooled us. We thought, you know, meditate, zone out, brain calms down–absolutely not like that at all. When people meditate it activates the frontal part of their brain, which is the most human, thoughtful part of the brain.” (Bold mine) You can find this beginning at 8:46 of the video, give or take a few seconds, and this is a decidedly positive portrayal of meditation. At roughly (give or take a few seconds) 6:25 and 7:31 of the video, listed under ”Enhances Brain Health,” we see meditation included among the suggested practices/activities.
