Question:

What are chakras? Are they evil or bad? Is there anything in the Bible that goes against them?

Thank you in advanced.


Answer:

Chakra is a part of the Hindu religious system. A chakra is supposed to be an energy point in the body. Exactly what a chakra represents or what it connects varies with the branch of Hinduism that is being discussed. Most documents say that there are seven main chakras but many more minor ones exist. Each chakra is connected to a Hindu deity.

The whole belief system is not supported by the Bible and idolatry, which Hinduism is an religion based on idols, is taught as being contrary to God. "Therefore concerning the eating of things offered to idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is no other God but one. For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as there are many gods and many lords), yet for us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we for Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and through whom we live" (I Corinthians 8:4-6).
