We have a lady in our church who professes to be a Christian and attends services on Sundays. She is also a yogi and takes people through eastern style meditation to find healing. She’s quite outspoken about her beliefs and will regularly be found ‘teaching’ people after a Sunday service how to find peace or healing according to her belief system - which she would always say involves Jesus somehow.
I’ve found that most of the people in our church have given up challenging her views, as she’s so adamant about what she believes. Recently she was telling a visitor to our church how she could find healing if she imagines her healing first. The yogi explained to the visitor that Jesus used his imagination in his healings of people. The yogi also spoke to me about how we can all find healing since we’re all perfect beings but we’ve become deceived by adverts and culture which has allowed ill health in. I wanted to try and draw out from her the biblical basis for these beliefs - after all, she claims to believe in the Bible - and her response was “Oh I used to think like you when I was younger, I used to be naive like you, but then I learned”. We were then interrupted by someone and I couldn’t take the conversation further.
My question is, are the others in my church right to not bother, or is there a way I can continue to engage with her that doesn’t end up in another fruitless conversation?
