Tai Chi is secular and compatible with being Christian Here is a link to the article: I had a pastor tell me that yoga and zazen were okay but not the moving one I was speaking of. This prompted me to write the linked article. If we envision Christianity throughout the world in the future, I think we would see it mixed with attributes of many cultures. It would be ethnocentric perhaps racist to imagine otherwise. On the other hand, we western Christians have much to benefit, particularly health wise from places such as China and India. When Christians attack tai chi, if tai chi is secular, the attack may be perceived as prejudice and hamper Christianity’s success in East Asian countries at a time when China will soon have the largest population of Christians of any country in the world. Much of the question is sorting the secular parts of foreign practices from the religious.
