Some People Take Things A Bit Too Far
So I have read that a Southern Baptist leader is denouncing yoga. What gives?
Yoga is one of the most innocent practices I know, but R. Albert Mohler, president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary says yoga is not a "pathway to God" or representative of Christianity.
Wake up, Al! I don't think most of the 15.6 million Americans who practice yoga view it as the "pathway to God". They do it because it's a relaxing way to be in better touch with yourself through relaxation, stress relief and low-impact physical activity.
Mohler's comments make it appears as though yoga is the equivalent of satanic worship. I think he probably has greater problems he could be attending to if he really wants help people find their pathways to God.
