Mosques in America…

Michael Youssef Speaks Out on Proposed Majestic Mosque in Manhattan

ATLANTA, Aug. 10 /Christian Newswire/ — Michael Youssef, Founder and President of Leading The Way, says the effort by political Islamic leaders to build a Mosque and Islamic Center just yards away from Ground Zero is not only insensitive, it is also part of Islam’s overall goal to dominate the world.

“Most Westerners do not understand that Islam is not a religion in their true understanding of what the word means,” stated Michael Youssef, PhD. “Islam is a political and social ideology that will never submit to a secular form of government. Islamists will wait until such time as they are able to transform societies into Sharia-dominated ones, giving citizens a Taliban-type government.”

“Christian” Yoga?

A recent YouTube video on the dangers of yoga is both sobering and informative, and explains why Christians should not attempt to “blend” their worship of God with the pagan practices of Hinduism. This is a very timely issue right now, given that a Hollywood movie starring Julia Roberts (Eat, Pray, Love) is about to be released and will be presenting a glowing cinematic portrayal of a sanitized, Americanized version of Hinduism.

Yoga is the salvific practice of Hinduism; in other words, it is the Hindu form of “salvation.” But Hindus have no concept of sin against a holy God….instead, it teaches that man’s greatest problem is his ignorance that he is “God” (or Brahman). Obviously, this is very different from the Christian understanding of what salvation is: Jesus’s atoning death for the forgiveness of sins, and being made right with a holy God.

Did Jesus Teach the Divinity of Humanity?

Investigating the intent of Jesus’ statement, “You are gods”

By Pastor Larry DeBruyn

“Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?”
Jesus, John 10:34, KJV

Mystic, New Age, cultic and Word of Faith spiritualists commonly assume that in the essence of their being they are divine, that either they are or can become gods.[1] For example, by employing The Third Eye mystics attempt to contemplate into a consciousness of their divine nature. One Norwegian website explains:

During deep meditation, the single or spiritual eye becomes visible within the central part of the forehead. This omniscient eye is variously referred to in scriptures as the third eye . . . [2]
