Mark, we do tap the "curiosity of deeper thinking Christians" but there is also a a strong strain of Evangelical Christians who think about contemporary culture and trends differently. This blog is a place to present those views in many forms. And we try to pick up on points of past guests and showcase how they might challenge some of our own beliefs and assumptions about what is good, what is right, what is a fair approach, and so on.
We do our best to draw connections, but I also hold a high reverence for our readers/listeners and their ability to digest and respond to these viewpoints. If readers choose not to think about what this means and value the concern of Albert Mohler and his constituency, that is a choice.
For me, it's interesting to see that history carries on. I can't tell you how many people talk to me about yoga and its merits — and, dare I say, in some ways evangelizing. So, when I hear a statement like this made by a powerful Evangelical leader, I pay attention and take those beliefs and views on these cultural topics quite seriously. I want to know more, to understand more, and piece it together as best I can.
To not present his unpopular view is a disservice too. I just wish people wouldn't name call or deride others, whether they believe in the power of yoga or not.
