Eastern Religions

Eastern Religions include Hinduism, Buddhism and now various spiritual New Age religions and philosophy that have gained popular appeal in the west. They do not place importance on the resurrection of Jesus Christ, or acknowledge it. We begin to explore some of the issues and problems with these here.

T.D. Jakes approves Yoga for Christians

I was amazed to read this article by T.D. Jakes in the Washington Post.

It seems that for T.D. Jakes, yoga can be divorced from its Hindu roots, and the good bishop has a better definition for yoga than that which the Websters dictionary offers.

There is a difference between Christian meditation and yoga. In Christian meditation, you actively consider the Word of God.

Sadhu Sundar Singh on Hinduism, Buddhism and Islam

Sadhu Sundar Singh was not one to belittle followers of other religions but he did make some salient observations on those religions.

Reincarnation

Today millions of intelligent people believe in the idea of reincarnation.
This is the idea that after death the soul or life-force will eventually
find its way into another body. There are many different and contradictory
theories concerning how reincarnation works. One thing is sure however.
If reincarnation is true, then death is not final. It is only the gateway
to a new existence. Death, then, is therefore also relatively safe. There
is no need to fear hell-fire or eternal judgment.
