Well, I have the same idea. Makes sense to me, its just very pretty stretching exercises. It certainly looks it to me! But I know that even though we know clearly what we see and we think we can decide for ourselves, “Our ways are not God’s ways.” So when the top Catholic experts who engage in REAL in spiritual battles say to stay away from it, I have to admit they probably know more than me. Even if I can’t see it.
Your analogy/connection with the meat offered to pagan idols makes sense. However, one is you are eating something (and I can see why Paul needed to address it), and the other is said by Catholic Exorcist Priests to be using your body to go into prayer positions to other gods. Yes, that is what the Exorcists say of it. I don’t see how I can refute that by saying,“But it just looks like nice stretching TO ME!”.
And since that is the FIRST Commandment is “Though shalt have no other Gods before me,” it seems a big clear priority to God, and you have to realize that the Exorcist Priests complaint is that you are putting your body in worship positions of false gods.
Yes, God knows your heart, and absolutely He knows that you don’t MEAN to say prayers to other God’s! But, there is a logic problem saying that you don’t mean it to be what it is actually IS, so, that makes it okay" But I can’t think of the logic argument at the moment. It makes sense though! I will get back to you when I remember or find it where I read it.
