The Literature: Samples of What Church Leaders Need to See 

 

Contemplative Concerns Pt.3 (Full Length - Pt.1,2,3,4) - The Literature: Samples That Church Leaders Need to See from Chris Lawson on Vimeo.


 

Reminder: I show these 80 Plus Books in my video!

I mention/show these books in my video(s), not to malign any individual (Christian or non-Christian), but to show: 
 
(1) Based on what the literature reveals,"Centering Prayer" is a very dangerous practice that can quickly induct one into a mystical/occult oriented altered state of consciousness, whereby passive mental states can be achieved, thereby opening up the individual to contact with spirit entities (familiar spirits).
 
(2) To show church leaders (including many Calvary Chapel and Baptist pastors, etc.) that they need to be aware of where the Contemplative Spirituality movement comes from, and that it needs to be rejected and warned against.
