Dr. Albert Mohler, Pastor Mark Driscoll and all others who believe like them--that the Pope, Islam and now Yoga are demonic or the anti-Christ are merely expressing their own inner demons and deeply rooted fears. Their belief systems protect them from having to face those demons and fears and do the deep personal work necessary to heal their own darkness within. To adhere so completely to any belief system that creates a "we and them" is, to me, demonic. In my early Christian upbringing, I was taught that it is the work of the devil to separate us from one another because in that separation we are weakened and in that weakened state he is able to invoke his ill will upon us. Yoga is a practice that encourages us to open--to ourselves, to our lives and to each other. Anti-Christ? Seems like Christ would have good things to say about that.
