"In the spiritual climate of today, a unifying, mystical prayer practice fits the paradigm necessary to unite the various world faiths. In Western civilization, this model is the contemplative prayer movement . . . [T]his movement is on the slippery slope that will lead to . . . apostasy.
For this to happen, as the Bible says, there will be "seducing spirits" who design a spirituality very closely related to the Truth. EVERY Christian must therefore discern whether or not the contemplative prayer movement is a deeper way of walking with God or a deception that is attempting to undermine the very Gospel, itself"
