Contemplatin the Bible dangerous says Eric Barger!

dontOur partner in discernmentalism Eric Barger rightly notes “Is Contemplative Prayer/Spirituality being introduced and practiced? Is there talk of “Spiritual Formation,” centering prayer and something called “lectio divina” which, in a nutshell, is leading Evangelicals directly into the mystical and sometimes occult-based practices of the Roman Church?”

We at ODMAfia concur! Lectio Divina is about studying passages in the Bible. Reading them. Listening to them. Then praying about them. Then discussing them. Then reading them again….and discussing them from various perspectives. Then listening to them again. Discussing. Meditating. This is bad. Bad Bad.

Study! Meditation! Discussion! Prayer! Reading the Bible like this leads you into the occult!

We cannot be thinking about the bible…..NOR discussing it. Eric Barger is right on again….how dangerous it is to meditate on the Bible.

As ITodyaso has noted….I DARE YOU to find one quote in the bible about meditation or renewing our minds using the bible! I DARE U.

Let ODMafia do the discerning so that you don’t have to!
