James Ray’s former employee Melinda Martin reveals a close-up look at the workings of the self-proclaimed “spiritual warrior” at his sweat lodge that fateful day when three souls died.
I can assure you as a former fitness trainer, life coach and licensed minister there is nothing spiritual about dehydrating, vomiting and dying prematurely.
Faithful followers of Jesus Christ – the greatest spiritual teacher of all time – were never put through such rigors, nor should they be.
To pay $9,000 to be subjected to and endure such foolishness is spiritual blasphemy and hypocrisy as former James Ray employee Melinda Martin uncovers the workings at the sweat lodge and the internal issues with employees that “spiritual warrior” James Ray had going on within his organization.
It’s sad to see people hungry for true spirituality being made merchandise of because the message potentially (if Christ centered) could be pure and empowering. Undoubtedly the Bible says, God is a “warrior” (Exodus 15:3) …so there is a degree of truth to this message as even the apostle Paul embraced the message of being a spiritual warrior (see 2Corinthians 10:3-6, Ephesians 6:10-17).
However the false spiritual teacher always points people to himself. John the Baptist wisely said, “I must decrease, be He [Christ:] must increase” (John 3:30).
The way up in God is to go down and humble yourself rather than exalt yourself. Truly we can do nothing against the truth, because time always eventually brings the truth to bear – whether to confirm a “spiritual warrior” or break him of his erroneous ways and teachings.
Salvation is still forever found in Christ Jesus alone, without which there can be no genuine and enduring personal total transformation, inner liberation or spiritual maturation.
I pray James Ray, his sweat lodge participants and former followers will awaken to that reality.
On Christ Jesus the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand.
Let us remember never to put our eyes on ourselves or man. Lift up your eyes to heaven where our help comes from!
Forgiveness, grace and truth is for whosoever will embrace the crucified and resurrected Christ – in Christ he or she can immediately experience newnesss of life!
