    Just this past week, our local newspaper ran a front cover article entitled “Examining Mindfulness as a means to overcome addictions”. The secular world as well as the church has been overtaken by eastern mystical practices.

    A large congregational church in my Southwestern Ontario small town offers a page on their website where one can find a list of daily meditations to click on, listen to and do. Some of the meditations are “Examens”, others begin with relaxation techniques and “focusing on the breath”, “visualizing” oneself in some quiet place, etc. This is bona fide New Age meditation. The pastor said he learned these techniques at seminary. We are certainly living in a time when seducing spirits and doctrines of demons have swept into our churches. The return of our Lord is near.

    Just take the passage of Eph. 4:11-15. 4 spiritual gifts are given for the same God ordained command for the perfecting of the saints as defined in :14-15. To so educate the flock in Gods words of truth that no one can deceive them. If pastors were obeying God LHTR would not be needed. Pastors would not water down and dumb down sermons to attract and make comfortable unrepentant sinners. Pastors are not really feeding the sheep rather they are feeding sugar to the goats and starving the sheep. Teachers will be judged more harshly for this very reason.

    The pastor of the Baptist church we started to attended, right before they changed the name of the church to remove Baptist from the title of the church so as not to offend anybody, taught and encouraged breath prayers. A small booklet was passed out that is printed by cru.org and distributes stuff for campus crusades for Christ lead by Bill Bright whom the pastor says he was introduced to breath prayers. The booklet is entitled Satisfied?, on page 9 it teaches exhale- confess your sins the moment you become aware of it…. inhale- surrender control of your life to Christ and…. not an atypical breath prayer designed to induce meditation but its similar and not biblical.

    The Leaven is completely mixed and ready for consumption to those who want more than the scriptures. Proverbs: 25:2 states “It is the glory of God to Conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of Kings”. Instead of searching the scriptures to see if doing this is so, the goats just gobble up the meal.
