Christian Alternatives to Yoga with Jessica Smith

Off The Bench with Heidi St. John

Is yoga harmless? Is it just another form of exercise, or is the strong spiritual component of yoga something Christians should be wary of? Yoga means "to yoke" or to open oneself up and invite in the spirit of yoga. Yoga sutras are a basically a guidebook for divination, which God expressly prohibits in the Bible. Listen in as Jessica Smith makes a strong case for how the poses alone invite spiritual forces into our lives that have no place in the lives of Christ followers. The Bible says, "You shall have no other God's before Me." Let's talk about alternatives to yoga today!

Christianity and Yoga: Do They Mix? with Jessica Smith

Off The Bench with Heidi St. John

Should Christianity mix with yoga? Are yoga poses benign if we do them but don't engage in the spiritual practice behind them? This is the question I'm asking my guest, Jessica Smith, who taught yoga for many years. Jessica has a unique perspective and a solid biblical stance on this modern controversy. Yoga is one of the six orthodox schools of Hindu philosophical traditions, yet many Christians today are practicing yoga with the belief that yoga's deep ties to Hinduism and Buddhism can be avoided. I will confess, I thought the same thing—but not any longer. Jessica challenged me and opened my eyes to the truth about this topic. Listen in. I pray your heart is blessed and encouraged as you strive to know God in a deeper way and bring Him honor in everything you do.

45. Christ and His Mother with Hebrew Scholar Jessica Smith

In Her Image: Finding Heavenly Mother in Scripture, Scholarship, the Arts, & Everyday Life

In this episode, Jessica Smith takes us on a journey through the Bible and other ancient works to highlight how Christ interacted with and followed in the footsteps of his mothers, both earthly and heavenly. She explores the possible connection of Ashera legends to acts Christ imitated during his life. Whether as a polemic to show that he is greater than all previously worshipped gods, or perhaps as a nod to these earlier myths out of respect to his actual Mother in Heaven, Jessica illustrates that there is much to learn from the study of the anciently worshipped goddess Ashera. Jessica extrapolates on the beautiful symbols of motherhood throughout scripture in connection to Christ. She points out literal “Easter” eggs Christ dropped throughout his time on earth that seem to point to the women who influenced Him most. Jessica is on Instagram as @milkmaidshoney.
