The Law of Attraction – The Secret

Posted by susanb99 on December 16, 2007

Last year a DVD was released called “The Secret”, a motivational, self help film which is purported to change people’s lives. To harness the power of “the secret”, one must think positively, which changes one’s environment and events positively. A person becomes a magnet for “good things”.

So what’s wrong with thinking positively? Nothing, as long as one is “bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ” (II Corinthians 10:5). What does Jesus Christ have to do with “The Secret”? Absolutely nothing. Anyone can use the method and be successful, all without Jesus Christ. According to the Lighthouse Trails Research site (Here and here), The Secret is no secret.

Rhonda Byrne, the author of The Secret, is a disciple of a couple named Jerry and Esther Hicks. In the Acknowledgements of The Secret, Byrne thanked the Hicks and the teachings of Abraham. Abraham is a group of spirit guides that Esther Hicks channels for guidance on spiritual issues…

The Secret is pure undisguised metaphysics and is the total manifestation of what the apostle Paul describes as seducing spirits (Abraham) and doctrines of devils (The Secret)…

The premise of this is that we all have a divine essence within us [the Word/Faith god-man, ed.], and we just need to get in touch with it. In other words, as panentheists teach, God is in all of creation, including all human beings, and once a person becomes aware of this, there are no limits to what he can achieve.

In the following video, Oprah says that she sang the song “I Surrender All”. Her surrender to the “savior”, part of The Secret, was what propelled her into starring in the movie “The Color Purple”. The “savior” Oprah is referring to is not Jesus Christ. She does not believe that Jesus is the Way to God — The Secret is what works for her.

“The Secret” is rooted in the biggest lie “you shall be as gods”, uttered by satan himself in the garden of Eden (Genesis 3:5). Seducing spirits, lovers of self, doctrines of demons, winds of doctrine – all those are described in the Bible as a portend of the last days, the days before Jesus’ imminent return. Be aware of the times as Jesus admonished in Mark 13 – watch and pray.
