Spiritual Research Network
Proclaiming the Gospel & Encouraging Biblical Discernment!
JOIN US AS WE HELP EQUIP PASTORS AND LAY BELIEVERS AT HOME AND ABROAD SO THEY CAN AVOID SPIRITUAL DECEPTION, EDIFY THE CHURCH, AND EVANGELIZE THE LOST.
Spiritual Research Network (SRN) seeks to Proclaim the Gospel and Encourage Biblical Discernment where cultic movements and philosophies are damaging the church and where families and communities are most vulnerable. Your sincere prayers and support can help us as we equip church leaders and missionaries to be biblically discerning, so they in turn can help edify the Church and lead people to Christ.

Hindu philosophy and NewAge/occult mystical practices have entered many Christian churches in the West! So too, Contemplative/New Age mystical practices and teachings have been made palatable for undiscerning Christians. There are even Christian pastors in India who grieve that Christians in the West are doing Yoga - for exercise. In order to help stem the flood of apostasy and equip believers to be discerning Christians, Spiritual Research Network has been operating since 2004 as an independent Christian outreach. We are committed first and foremost to the Lord Jesus Christ and the integrity of His Word. - Chris Lawson, Director

A DIRECTORY OF AUTHORS
(THREE NOT RECOMMENDED LISTS)
It is no secret these days that Christian bookstore and ministry resource databases are often jam-packed with so-called Christian resources that are actually promoting anything but biblical Christianity. Special care may be taken by bookstore owners and ministry leaders alike to ensure that ministry and business are “in order,” but, when a close look is taken, the sale of spiritually unsafe material abounds. This is the primary reason for these three lists—to help warn and protect you, the reader, and to provide a quick reference guide

YOGA AND CHRISTIANITY
ARE THEY COMPATIBLE?
Western Culture Embraces Yoga
It is no secret that Yoga is taking Western civilization by storm. In just a little over a hundred years, a mystical revolution has occurred that millions of Westerners have wholeheartedly embraced. Amazingly, the Western Judeo-Christian view is in the process of a paradigm shift toward the same perspective as yogic India.
To illustrate the magnitude of the Yoga explosion, consider Yoga Journal’s “Yoga in America Study 2012.” This study reveals some incredible statistics:
• 20.4 million Americans practice Yoga, compared to 15.8 million from the previous 2008 study.
• Practitioners spend $10.3 billion a year on Yoga classes and products. The previous estimate from the 2008 study was $5.7 billion.
• Of current non-practitioners, 44.4 percent of Americans call themselves “aspirational yogis”—people who are interested in trying Yoga... Read more.
