Have Christians completely lost the culture war?

Did anyone watch the Grammys? Did you catch Katy Perry’s performance?

What do you think about her wearing a cross on her outfit while demons dance in the background, a circle is cast, and fire rages around her?

For those of you who haven’t seen Katy Perry’s performance from the Grammys, you can watch it here:

Christian artist Natalie Grant tweeted that she left the Grammys because the performances were in conflict with her faith.

What, if anything, can we as Christians do to impact this culture in a more positive way?

Are you washing your hair with products intended to draw you into the worship of false gods, and idolatrous practices?

The intertwining of Eastern Mysticism with Western Culture – Why Christians should be concerned about it, PART 2.

The following photograph was in a brochure, available at no cost, from a local shopping mall store selling skin and hair care products:

Let’s define some of the terms that are employed in the photo:

VedasAbout.com says, “The Vedas are considered the earliest literary record of Indo-Aryan civilization, and the most sacred books of India. They are the original scriptures of Hindu teachings… “Veda” means wisdom, knowledge, or vision, and it manifests the language of the gods in human speech. The laws of the Vedas regulate the social, legal, domestic and religious customs of the Hindus to the present day.”

ChakraMindBodyGreen.com says, “The 7 Chakras are the energy centers in our body in which energy flows through.”

Kundalini – Kundaliniyoga.org says, “Kundalini is the energy of our soul. Kundalini is imagined as a coiled serpent lying asleep at the base of our spine.”

This picture from the website of the company who creates these products shows a touch on the third eye chakra:

This is how a guru will transfer “energy” during a kundalini awakening. This is called shaktipat. “Shaktipat is the transfer of spiritual energy from the teacher to the student in order to awaken the kundalini.”

Here is another photo of a guru giving a shaktipat initiation to awaken the kundalini energy:

Shaktipat

Here is more information on a kundalini awakening from the Spiritual Research Center’s website:

“The Kundalini is the spiritual energy and it generally lies dormant, coiled at the base of the Sushumnanadi for an average person. Through spiritual practice it begins to rise from the base of the spine through the Sushumnanadi right till the top of the head. While it does so, the Kundalini awakens each of the chakras along the way.”

“Kundalini awakening happens through spiritual practice or spiritual transfer of energy.”

“Some people try to force awakening of the Kundalini by efforts through the Path of Deliberate Rigour. However, this can lead to deleterious effects. Some can even become insane from it.”

The Spiritual Research Center’s website also says, “Whatever the spiritual path, when there is spiritual growth the Kundalini rises.”

The Bible tells us the truth about our spiritual position, and about obtaining salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.

This is made known to us in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

This has nothing to do with any type of chakra energy, kundalini force or awakening.

John 14:6 restates the point, and makes it very clear, “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

Any spiritual practice outside of what God says is good in The Bible is deception, and will result in spiritual confusion.

The information from the company also attempts to sell a product that is meant to enhance a meditative practice as is illustrated in the following picture:

Chakras51

Jesus tells us in Matthew 6:7: “But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.” This is the exact opposite of what this product is advocating.

These products are attempting to sell to us – and indoctrinate us – with the religious tenets of Hinduism, a spiritual practice that God warns Christians about in the Ten Commandments in Exodus 20:3: “Thou shalt have no other gods before me.”

Be vigilant, Christians!

Repair : Revive : Renew – A day of fasting and prayer 6.7.2013


If there was ever a time to pray, it would be NOW!

praying handsAnd here are a few reasons why:

  • A two-mile wide tornado devastated a town in Oklahoma today, killing at least 24 people.
  • Christians are being killed and persecuted daily, and may soon be driven out completely from the Middle East.
  • Asteroids are nearly missing earth, or actually slamming into it as did the one in Russia recently.
  • Governmental agencies are targeting American citizens simply due to their political affiliations.
  • Corruption and cover ups are rampant, and lying comes as easy as telling the truth.
  • Abortion doctors who take an oath to preserve life are killing our children, born and unborn.

The world needs honest prayer from God’s faithful people more than it ever has before.

Those of us who understand that these events are occurring on a prophetic timeline should be out there witnessing to the truth of salvation in Jesus Christ at an increased rate, as there may not be much time left to save the souls of the earth from eternal consequences.

In Matthew 24, our Lord Jesus Christ informs us about these coming events:

“4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.”

Please pray without ceasing for our country, for the world, and for the salvation of souls in the hope of Jesus Christ.
