Father Sofian Boghiu
God does not listen to the prayers of those who mix the oriental practices with the Christian faith. These practices are alien to our nation and mentality and they are not begotten through or for Christ. It is a kind of hypocrisy of the prayer, a deception. They mix the things in order to make them look right to us: yoga, for instance, with Jesus prayer.
The difference is like an apple to an oyster! There are witches who have an icon with them. They look at the icon and say some things, some guesswork. It is a deception of the believers who ask for this “consult” from a witch. It is not possible to bring together the Spirit of God with this lie, with this hypocrisy. You will know them from their fruits. These people, who mix the Jesus prayer with yoga, if we take a closer look to their lives we will see that they usually trip. Their life is different. Even in yoga there are some controversial things that happen. A lot of indecency. Those who practice yoga know what I am talking about.
