CURSED OBJECTS SERIES: MYSTICAL LABRYRINTHS AND MAZES now adopted by many churches and Christians.
Many churches are adopting the labyrinth spiritual walk but it is nothing more then a merging of Eastern mysticism to Christianity which is the old “all paths lead to GOD” concept also leading to the ultimate goal: one world religion which is antichrist. Here is a very good article that exposes this pagan practice for what it is:
In an earlier quote by the Rev. Jill Geoffrion, she proclaimed that “God is blessing the use of the labyrinth; many are being drawn closer to Jesus, experiencing healing and gaining spiritual clarity as they pray on its path.”
On the surface this sounds great. But is God really blessing this “new thing”? Moreover, can God bless something that has its origins in esoteric doctrine and ancient pagan mythologies? Adding to its historical pagan significance is the fact that the labyrinth has never lost its occult meaning. As mentioned earlier in the article, labyrinths are still being used, and will continue to be used, as an instrument of pagan spirituality.
If God is going to bless labyrinth prayer journeys, how is He going to deal with Deuteronomy 12:1-14, 18:9-13 and Exodus 34:10-17? In each of these Scripture passages God explicitly tells His people to refrain from anything used in pagan practices. Moreover, the entire book of Jeremiah is a warning against involvement in alternative religious practices.
Furthermore, if God is going to bless labyrinth prayer journeys, how is He going to excuse the interfaith aspect that is common throughout the movement? John 14:6 clearly states that the only path to the Father is through Jesus Christ, and by no other way.
Yes, the majority of
Christians would affirm that their prayer walk is completely focused on
Jesus Christ. That may be true, but it doesn’t excuse the fact that the
labyrinth is, by its theological nature, an inter-religious and deeply
mystical device. If God is going to bless the labyrinth experience, how
is He going to deal with 2 Corinthians 6:14-16?
“Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? What does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols?…”
