Recently, the Courier-Journal reported that Dr. Albert Mohler, president of the Southern Baptist Seminary in Louisville, wrote at length to instruct Christians not to do yoga.
He says, "The embrace of yoga is a symptom of our postmodern spiritual confusion, and, to our shame, this confusion reaches into the church."
I would that Dr. Mohler had told me where "the church" he speaks of is located so that I might never bring it shame by thinking of entering into it. Since I don't know where it is, I apologize in advance to any who are members for the possibility that I might stumble in by accident.
Dr. Mohler doesn't like "postmodern spiritual confusion." He much prefers premodern spiritual confusion, which convinces him he has significantly mastered defining the infinite, in this case God, based on the fourth major miss-telling of the life of Jesus, this time in 17th Century English.
Though scholars cannot agree for certain on what Jesus' name was, what we know for sure is that he wouldn't want us to do yoga.
Dr. Mohler will vendor the premodern spiritual confusion at the Temple in Louisville, where he has uprighted the tables and gathered the coins scattered from the last entrance of "postmodern spiritual confusion."
And business is good.
