Ultimately, whether the Eastern practice in which a Christian dabbles is meditation, yoga, reiki, or anything else, the result is usually the same: save any instances of Divine intervention, people who wade in non-Christian waters frequently end up drowning in them. After enough sessions of any of these Eastern exercises or techniques, participants tend to find their own beliefs aligning less and less with Christianity; there are countless documentaries on television and stories on the Internet that chronicle such a spiritual journey. It is not uncommon for people to taste the fruits of Eastern religions and then feel “led” or “guided” toward changes in thinking—namely, changes that involve whittling Christ completely out of their faith. Needless to say, this is the handiwork of demons.
