Yoga which is a diametrically opposed to Christianity is an everyday occurrence in Churches across America. False prophet and prosperity preacher TD Jake has just opened the door to the Jezebel spirit by allowing his wife to host a “Woman to Woman: Aspire to Inspire” event.
2 John 1:7 – For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.
The Potter’s House of Jezebel is Practicing Yoga in Church
Hall identifies as an engineering yogi, and is an instructor at Gaia Flow Yoga in Dallas. She and her husband also run Hall Strategies, LLC. Hall had written an article for Jakes’ eMotions Magazine last year, explaining why she believes yoga is beneficial for Christians.
“I believe that yoga is a form of body prayer, which allows us to express gratitude and thankfulness to God through physical movements and meditation (prayer),” she wrote. “My genre of yoga allows students to practice surrendering their bodies to Jesus Christ, knowing that because of Him, we are able to move, breathe, flow and live.”
“The simple truth is that ‘yoga’ does not belong to one religion any more than prayer can belong to a single religion. Therefore, yoga is neutral and takes on the quality of the student,” she asserted. “Each student should set their own intention and establish a purpose for their personal practice.”

TD Jake’s Congregation Leaving the Church and Warnings From Christians about Yoga
“I’ll be going to a new church now. Yoga is rooted in Hindu worship. Yoga is a practice found in all sects of Hinduism. There are different types of yoga, but all are touted as a means to achieve unity with the divine and thus to earn salvation. Kundalini [is] the yogic life force that is held to lie coiled (snake) at the base of the spine until it is aroused and sent to the head to trigger enlightenment,” one commenter wrote.
“This is very dangerous practice to introduce in the church. It may seem innocent, but it really isn’t. Who will stop people from going into deeper forms of yoga?” another asked. “When one opens up their spirit, the enemy has the legal right to bring all kinds of corruption to one’s soul. I have cast out many demons that have entered in this fashion. This is not right…” another commenter wrote.
“Is Heaven so bankrupt that you have to borrow from the devil?” another inquired. “Please research before you lead these beautiful ladies to worship that’s not of God.”
Daniel Akin, dean of the school of theology at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, said Christians who are drawn to the physical benefits of yoga should avoid its spiritual and psychological underpinnings. “Yoga is rooted in Eastern mysticism and it is incompatible with Christianity,” he says.
Laurette Willis, a yoga veteran of 22 years and an Evangelical Christian, said the experience left her vulnerable to “psychic influences” she believes were demonic. “It opened the door to twenty years of involvement in the New Age movement.” Willis says that many yoga postures are based on ancient Hindu worship of the sun and moon as deities, and rejects the notion that they can be redeemed by putting a Christian spin on them. Willis concludes that yoga’s emphasis on cultivating divine energy within oneself conflicts with Christianity’s goal of finding salvation in Christ. Yoga means joining together. It’s the joining of the individual spirit with the universal spirit. Christians should be seeing red flags rather than exploring a trendy new “experience.”
