In this detailed article, Meditating on Contemplative/Centering Prayer, Ken Silva aptly warns of its dangers. Read this article to find out more about Dallas Willard, "spiritual formation", Richard Foster, and "centering". Has Buddhism mixed with monastic Catholicism made inroads into Protestant Christianity? The article admonishes Christians to know what we believe and why we believe it based on Scripture, exposing what is happening as discernment has gone awol within the church.
Dwayna, the CD you sent answered my question (about the Old Covenant and the New Covenant), but it is going to be a blessing beyond measure for a friend. He is very sad right now...He and his wife are coming to dinner today. I will give the CD to him. You are blessed with the Holy Spirit to recall this particular pastor's message to answer my question (about the Passover, comparing the faith of Abraham to the faith of Christians through Jesus), but most of all this will be such a blessing to my friend. Thank you also for the book on Heaven (by Randy Alcorn).Bev WilhelmWitnesses for Jesus MinistriesColorado Springs, CO
Hi Dwayna, Thanks for the info you’ve sent me. We appreciate your trip to our Sunday School class so much. What you had to say [about the New Age Movement and yoga] was so important and is causing quite a stir. Some people are wanting us to get back to the Bible in August and study what God’s Word says about reincarnation, spiritism, etc. That will be great!!!!! You are quite a young woman with God’s strength and truth shining through you…Thank you so much for your Godly talk with us on Sunday.Beverly IgoSunrise Methodist ChurchColorado Springs, CO
