Megachurch Pastor Says Yoga Has ‘Demonic Roots,’ ‘Diametrically Opposed to Christianity’

Missouri megachurch pastor John Lindell has warned his 10,000-member congregation not to participate in yoga, saying that positions associated with exercise and meditation activity were designed to “open you up to demonic power.”Lindell, the pastor of the James River Church in Ozark, gave a sermon titled “Pursuing the Paranormal” on the Sunday before Halloween in which he spoke out against “demonic influences” such as paganism, witchery, sorcery, fortune-telling, astrology and elements of Eastern mysticism such as yoga.
