Christian Mysticism: Oxymoron?

I have long been perplexed trying to sift through the good and bad of "mystical" Christian practices such as contemplative prayer.  Recently Proclamation Magazine ran an article about it that is so in depth and insightful that I wanted to share it with you.  Even if you don't consider yourself mystical, you have probably in some ways already been influenced by mysticism.  (It is a natural bent for all human hearts.)  Click below to read the article.

  1. Willard and Foster have long been leading advocates of this type mysticism. There is only one questions to ask. Are any of the practices they advocate in scripture? The simple answer is NO!
