    I wonder if this critique is spirit lead or mind and fear lead. The ultimate aim of the app is to saturate people in the word of God. Everything that is said is biblical.
    This argument feels like a reach.

    This entire website speaks and fears “Eastern Teachings” but fails to also recognize that Christianity originates from….the Middle EAST.

    Not saying we should start practicing Buddhism or Hinduism, but looking over biblical scripture and being in the presence of God and also meditating (on scripture) and contemplating what scripture means, is not a sin.

    I also read a book which I enjoy called Sacred Rhythms it was something we read during Seminar. Lecto was in there, I think it helped.

    Either way I just found this website and I think it’s wild, I don’t care much about your argument more that I am questioning why you say the EAST so much like its the boogie man.

  4. Dear Ann Oliva, If you would like understand what contemplative spirituality entails and what its roots are, we’d be happy to send you a well documented complimentary book or booklet (whichever you prefer). Keep in mind too that division is not Satan’s strongest tool. We must not sacrifice truth on the altar of unity. The basis for contemplative spirituality is interspiritual (all paths lead to God) and panentheistic (God is in all). If either of these outlooks is true, then Jesus dying on the Cross for the sins of the world would have been in vain, and we would be fools for believing it.

    Lectio 365 has you look at a verse two times. It also uses 2 other verses at the beginning and the ending. It asks you to pray several times. How can these things be wrong? Wouldn’t a better use of your time be used to raise and edify others rather than criticize what is obviously helping others? Ask yourself, am I serving God or am I creating division in the church? Division is Satan’s strongest tool right now. I’m praying for your group. I pray for insight, humbleness and wisdom.

    Thomas Keating’s support of using “Eastern techniques” was long ago spoken against and forbidden by God. That includes worship supposed to be to Him.

    Deuteronomy 12:29-31
    “29 “When the Lord your God cuts off before you the nations whom you go in to dispossess, and you dispossess them and dwell in their land, 30 take care that you be not ensnared to follow them, after they have been destroyed before you, and that you do not inquire about their gods, saying, ‘How did these nations serve their gods?—that I also may do the same.’ 31 You shall not worship the Lord your God in that way, for every abominable thing that the Lord hates they have done for their gods…” [ESV]

    The original context (such as the end of v 31) included even worse things, but the principle still holds.

    In these end times, boldly defending the faith, is like playing Whack a Mole on steroids.
    Jesus said, Think not that I came to bring peace but a sword.
    The prince of peace was warning the Apostles and the Church that the world will be at war against the truth.
