The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary is warning Christians against practicing yoga. Albert Mohler (seminary president) said the current fascination in the U.S. with the ancient Eastern mind-body practice, “a symptom of our postmodern spiritual confusion.” He continued, “Yoga begins and ends with an understanding of the human body that is, to say the least, at odds with the Christian understanding.”
Thankfully, we will soon be changing the Christian understanding of the human body, so that Mr. Mohler can stop worrying about the illusory knowledge and/or perception gaps that exist between Christianity and yoga practitioners.
There is a smaller gap between the two than most people probably realize.
