Should Christians Do Yoga?

This post is sort of piggy-backing off of my post on meditation. If you have not read that one (or watched the videos), I highly recommend that you do so: The Dark Side of Meditation – What no one wants to talk about… I would also like to quickly add, before I get started, that watching…

The Dark Side of Meditation (What no one wants to talk about…)

I am finding that speaking negatively about meditation or yoga brings about a surprising amount of attack and vitriol…even from Christians. The fervor with which these practices are defended have led me to believe that the effects of meditation and yoga reach far beyond just “relaxation” and “exercise.” Could it be possible that there might…

Misunderstood Scripture in New Age/New Thought and Word of Faith

This is an EXCELLENT conversation on how New Age/New Thought/Law of Attraction and Word of Faith support their beliefs using Scripture out of context (this is not an exhaustive list)…and what those same passages mean IN CONTEXT. You may recognize many, if not all, of these verses. Have you ever used any of these verses…

The Gospel of Experience or The Gospel of Jesus Christ?

My heart is utterly grieved. I don’t even really know what to say. I have had to repent of SO MUCH, over the last couple of months. This isn’t the first time I have had the very foundation of what I believe in, shaken. When I turned from my New Age beliefs and returned to…

New Age or Christianity? Defining Our Terms

When trying to determine if something is Christianity or New Age, we need to understand what certain words and phrases mean. I’ve noticed that Satan likes to play with language to cause confusion and frustration (we see it in the news, everyday). As Christians, we are taught to disregard Satan’s lies and focus on the…

On the Rise – New Age Beliefs in the Church

I’m sharing something today, that I hope will begin some conversation about where we are as the Church – as the Body of Christ. While this post addresses issues found in the western church – North America, in particular – these beliefs and practices have a global reach.  This is a video by Steven Bancarz…

Recent Changes and Future Plans

I’ve been away from both my blog, and social media, for a few months. It has been a season of change for me and my family, so a break was a necessary thing. I’m writing this as a quick update on what has been going on and to share a little about my plans for…

Women Are To Be Silent In Church?

I recently came across a teaching that I would really like to share.  For more than a decade I served in some kind of church ministry. I LOVE ministering to people and felt the pull to minister from a very young age. And I believe, with all my heart, that it was God who placed…

Comfort Women Memorial Peace Garden

Located behind the Fairfax County Government Center, in Fairfax, VA, is a small memorial dedicated to the women and girls forced into sex slavery by the Japanese Imperial Army before, and during, World War II.  Women (some as young as fourteen) from Korea, China, Taiwan, the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, the Netherlands and East Timor…

Exposing the Darkness

***Warning: This is a post on abortion with some graphic detail from my personal experience.*** If you have had an abortion, this may not be a post that you want to read. However, if abortion is a part of your story and you find yourself struggling with pain, guilt or shame, please know that God…
