Bible Answer

What is Christian mysticism?

What is Christian mysticism? Can you help me understand from a biblical view how to comprehend this?

There is no theological basis for mysticism in the church. Mysticism generally involves belief in spirit powers, altered states of consciousness or other occult beliefs, none of which are biblical. The Christian faith is based in knowledge of God’s revealed word, not in mystical experiences. Therefore, virtually any practice of mysticism in the church is sin.
