What is the difference between God’s miracles and mysticism? Amy and Michelle discuss a growing trend in the church that borrows mystical elements from Buddhism and Hinduism and melds or syncretizes them into Christian practices. Mysticism in the church is as old as the church itself, and has been rightly called out over the centuries as unbiblical. But it is a trend in our time as many Christians are now bringing in these practices and normalizing them.
Sadly, a lot of it comes through the church doors from women, bringing in teachings into women’s ministries on Reiki, chakras, crystals, magic energy oils, yoga, karma, energy fields, and even Ouija boards and tarot cards.
