700 Club Pat Robertson on Yoga: Stretching Is Great, Mantras are Prayers to Hindu Gods

In Pat Roberston’s “Bring It On” segment with the reading of viewer mail on the 700 Club network, there is a question that asks Pat Robertson about the Christian view of Yoga and whether it’s true that Yoga origins are rooted in evil. Roberstson says that Yoga is a form of meditation in the Hindu religion and that some of the mantras actually involve saying prayers to Vishnu and Krishna. Yoga promotes higher conciousness and the merging of your spirit into the ever-present god … and god is everywhere … that gets into pantheism, and that’s spooky. He basically says, watch out for the mantra and by all means, go out and stretch.
