Shedding Some Light on 'The Secret'
In 2006, the book The Secret, by Rhonda Byrne, took the world by storm and since then has sold millions of copies.
The Law of Attraction has become a household name in personal growth and is now taught by most personal development teachers, gurus, and motivational speakers.
Within Christianity, some have gobbled it up hook, line, and sinker, while others call it straight out witchcraft.
Is the law of attraction good?
Is it bad?

"You’ll notice that when we stop naming a thing and teach it as fact, that is when it has become part of the culture."
"They stole our rainbow! ... Let’s take back what the Enemy has stolen. Let’s take it back and make it so Christian that New Agers will fear it and stay away from it!” - John Paul Jackson
"Don’t forget that the Bible is a very supernatural book. And God wants us to live a life where the supernatural shows up."
"Every LAW has a Law Maker. Like any law of creation, God made it for the benefit of his creation – and for us."
"For example: Gardening is indiscriminating. There are simple rules associated with it. Believers can do it successfully, and so can evil men."
"Where focus goes, energy flows."
"The Bible, while not specifically telling us that we can direct our lives by controlling our thoughts, does mention the importance of positive thinking, a strong mindset, and a focus on right things and right thinking."
For example, they’ll say that if you have debt, and you keep thinking about your debts… you will only attract more debt.
"Focus on the abundance God gives you. Be thankful for all you DO have. Praise Him in prayer in advance for providing for your needs as you ask Him to do so."
