For those who are still on the fence about yoga and Hinduism. Just for the record Hinduism is not compatible which Christianity.
They say you don’t have to be Hindu to practice these things but then it clearly states that when your engaging in these practices specifically doing the poses with your body you’re tapping into the power of said god or goddess.
So if you practice hinduism then you’re a practicing hindu and no longer Christian ...A man cannot serve 2 masters.....
This is why yoga Hinduism is not compatible with Christianity.

Thank you Dear @Lucia for sharing this article. It's so important to know the history behind so many activities that Christians think are innocent; yet they are not. With a background in 'Dance', it took me a while to realize that Yoga is not compatible with ones faith in Jesus. God bless you for sharing this important message.
Blessings to Everyone here...
i agree. Your information is healing to one’s soul, as we are in this world but not of it. Being aware is vital.Thanks Shimmie agreed
Actually dancing and the dance stretches, calesthetic track gymnastics stretches are just as effective if not more so for getting flexible. Too much credit is given to Yoga. Stretching cannot make you strong it just makes you flexible.
My husband has given me an ultimatum requiring me to do something I feel is against my faith. I am torn.
Hi @LovinLea, I hope you're well and that you've been praying about your circumstances.
Is your husband a Christian? If so, find scriptures that support your position and show them to him. If it's more of a conscience issue and you can't find any scriptures, please show him Ephesians 5:25-30 and 1 Peter 3:7-8.
If he's not a Christian and you've prayed and are sure this is the wrong thing to do, don't do it. Remember how badly it ended for Sapphira when she took her husband's side over the Lord's.
Finally, please ask God for wisdom, he's eager to bless you with it. Doing what you think is right may cost you but God will uphold you for honouring Him (Isaiah 43:1-2, 1 Samuel 2:30). God bless you and give you clear direction.
Hi again, I don't know what your situation is but if you are able to fast, I'd say to do that. Remind God the He hates divorce, and He ordained marriage to be lifelong. He's a good Father and He gives good gifts to His children. Pray and listen for what He says. He has the power to change hearts and nothing is too hard for Him.Thank you.
He’s a Christian as well but a lot of times I feel that his motivations are worldly. He's given me an ultimatum where if I don't agree, he wants divorce. To me, either way the end result is divorce, because how can I live like this? I am praying for the Lord to guide me.
An Evil List
This list speaks so much of today. The sin in the earth grieving the heart of GodHazael came to inquire something from the prophet. After giving him an answer, Elijah fixed his gaze on Hazael and wept. Embarrassed by the whole situation, Hazael asked “why does my Lord weep?”, Elisha’s listed evil acts that Hazael would commit such as;
- Burn down strongholds (fortified cities)
- Kill young men
- Dash in pieces kids
- Cut open pregnant women
It really really helped.
Hallelujah! To God be the glory!It really really helped.
Just an update. I refused the ultimatum. We came through on the other side of it. He told me he now wants to be closer to God and we have started doing church from home and praying more often together.
Thank all of you ladies for your wisdom.
