Online Christian Bookstores Continue to Promote Yoga and the New Age Movement
They continue to do it, despite the Biblical warnings against it

"...any Christian leader who promotes, teaches, practices, or endorses any type of 'Christian spirituality' that mixes yoga and these other influences into it is a leader that has been seriously misled and is misleading others...Because when one opens the door to yoga, mysticism, the New Age and occultism, the kingdom of darkness is more than willing to come flooding through" (Chris Lawson, "Defining Deception: What is Yoga, Mysticism, New Age and the Occult?" Complete article at http://tinyurl.com/yrkdvk ).
