La Vista Church of Christ

Question:

Hey Jeffrey,

I have known people who have believed in the concept of chakras and practice seemingly a branch of Hinduism and Buddhist-like meditation. Are these people evil? How would you approach someone with those types or beliefs with the truth of Christ?

What I have noticed is in today's society people tend to believe that "it doesn't matter what you believe as long as you believe in something." How do you help convince people like that of the Truth?


Answer:

"I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting Him who called you by the grace of Christ, for a different gospel; which is really not another; only there are some who are disturbing you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed! As we have said before, so I say again now, if any man is preaching to you a gospel contrary to what you received, he is to be accursed! For am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I striving to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a bond-servant of Christ" (Galatians 1:6-10).
