    Stuff Christian Culture Likes - #196 Not Yoga (with a sermon clip by Mark Driscoll)

    I am officially convinced that Mark Driscoll is paranoid....plus based on some other sermons maybe some other things.

    Recently a president of a Southern Baptist seminary has also rallied against yoga as well. Yoga poses dangers to genuine Christian faith

    Thoughts? Personally, yoga has never been my thing and I prefer pilates. I do know of several Yoga instructors who are pretty strong Christians so I am not getting this. Plus, most people do yoga for fitness.

    I guess there are Christians who are opposed to doing anything meditative or relaxing that doesn't involved prayer.

    Sounds like Driscoll. IIRC, he's also the one who said it's wrong for a man to be a stay-at-home dad.

    Driscoll has had his wife onstage and do some Q&A from the audience. There are many videos on Youtube. She seems nice but I did kind of cringe because I think she is either 1)brainwashed and/or 2)have some sort of dependency problem.

    Can we please not lump "Christians" into one big group? Bad enough I'm either considered not one (because somehow Catholocism and Orthodoxy don't count, despite predating all other forms by centuries?) or get dumped in with everything from Jehovah's Witnesses to Mormons.

    (And please. If a man bought me an SUV I'd dump him for the first guy driving a Jag who came along, even an S-type and I hate those.)
