Some churches are even teaching something called
'Contemplative Prayer'.

They tell you to get quiet, and then you can contact the
god of your understanding.
They tell you to just clear your mind of all thoughts.

They'll also teach you a breathing technique similar to Yoga.

Only with a blank mind they can begin to indoctrinate you to
their religious ideas of “being in the now.”

The Bible says to bring every thought captive and make it
obedient to Christ.
2 Corinthians 10:5

If someone comes along and says to you,
"I have a technique by which you can greatly enrich your
prayer life, it is called Contemplative Prayer;
you do not have to change a thing about the way that you
live, I can show you the way."

Do not believe them.
Only Jesus can show you the way.

The contemplative prayer religion is also false because it claims
that there can be direct contact with God without a mediator,
which is a lie.

The only way we are accepted by God the Father is through our
Lord Jesus who shed his blood and died for our sins and rose
for our justification.
He is the mediator between us and God.

'For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men,
the Man Christ Jesus,'
1 Timothy 2:5

One group teaches:
For someone to become a child of God, they must repent
of their sins, then be water baptized according to their
water baptism formula.
Before someone is fully born of the water and the spirit,
they must speak in other tongues as the Spirit gives
them utterance.

The sad part about this fellowship is that they are convinced
they are the only ones right and that everybody else must fall
in line with what they teach to know the truth.

Another group teaches repentance with much to do
of being baptized, especially by one of their own preachers.
The truth of this fellowship is they don't allow any music
to be played in their services.
They spend much time desiring to debate anyone who
would openly disagree with them.

They also feel that they alone have the truth, no one on the
outside of this fellowship is called a Brother or Sister.

Many refuse healing and the baptism of the Holy Spirit
with evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Spirit
gives utterance.
To those that do believe, have their forms you must fit to
receive the gifts of God.

'But there were also false prophets among the people, even
as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly
bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who
bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction.
And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom
the way of truth will be blasphemed.
By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words; for
a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their
destruction does not slumber.'
2 Peter 2
