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:

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!

And the TWO shall become ONE flesh…

marriageThe definition of “marriage” in the American society is the hot topic right now in the media, and also in the highest court in the land.

God’s design for marriage in the Bible consists of one man and one woman as defined by the following Bible passages:

  • Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. – Genesis 2:24.
  • For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. – Ephesians 5:31.
  • But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. – Mark 10:6-8.
  • And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? – Matthew 19:5.

Do scientific experiments show that two do indeed become one flesh?

Research has shown that distinct and individual cells with separate DNA have been found in the brains of humans. This is known as microchimerism.

“Microchimerism (abbreviated Mc) is the presence of a small number of cells that originate from another individual and are therefore genetically distinct from the cells of the host individual.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microchimerism

“Microchimerism: The presence of two genetically distinct and separately derived populations of cells, one population being at a low concentration, in the same individual or an organ such as the bone marrow.” http://www.medterms.com/script/main/art.asp?articlekey=25263

Studies show that this is the case:

“Recently, our group reported the presence of microchimerism (Mc) in the human brain by performing quantitative PCR on female human brain tissues to amplify male DNA. We found brain Mc to be relatively frequent in humans and widely distributed in this organ.” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23434631

“In conclusion, male microchimerism is frequent and widely distributed in the human female brain.” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23049819

Articles suggest that one possible cause of this microchimerism is sexual intercourse:

“Male microchimerism was not infrequent in women without sons. Besides known pregnancies, other possible sources of male microchimerism include unrecognized spontaneous abortion, vanished male twin, an older brother transferred by the maternal circulation, or sexual intercourse… Further studies are needed to determine specific origins of male microchimerism in women.” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16084184 (emphasis mine).

“Thus, potential explanations include an early unrecognized miscarriage, an unreported induced abortion, an unrecognized loss of a male twin in utero, or possibly cells from sexual intercourse or transfer, via the maternal circulation, from an older male sibling.” http://bloodjournal.hematologylibrary.org/content/100/8/2845.full (emphasis mine).

Is it possible that before we alter the current definition of marriage, we should be also taking into consideration the physical and spiritual processes of which we have little or no understanding?

Science writer Jena Pincott also speculates on this, “There remains a possibility, however remote, that cells from a lover may be transmitted during sex. Those cells may hang out forever in the recipient’s body, taking residence in any organ.” http://jenapincott.com/do-you-carry-the-dna-of-your-former-lovers/

This is an interesting thing to consider as we are preparing to change the way that marriage is defined in our country.

God has defined marriage for humanity for a reason, and in our best interest. Are we really so sure that changing it is a good thing?

What do you think?
