    law of attraction is nothing compare than faith in God. The law of
    attraction is just natural while faith in God is supernatural

    You call the laws of attraction not scientic, but you will belive in a book
    that has been rewritten by man? Hmm, whats up with that? You can’t blame
    the laws for what has happened in your life because you didn’t know what
    you were doing! I belive that you never practiced the laws! You certainly
    shouldn’t give advice. Religion is meant to control people!

    @thiery572 How do you know Abraham isn’t an evil spirit trying to decieve
    you? Think about it! Even humans try to pass off superficial messages that
    are deceptive. For example, some music “artists” preach “love love love” in
    their ballads and “love songs” when in fact they really mean LUST LUST
    LUST! If you look inside yourself to find “God” you will only associate
    your inner self as a god. New Age = idolatry & occult practices with
    “energy” that doesn’t exist (spiritual energy = oxymoron).

    I admire Sharon Lee’s patience in allowing caller Elizabeth to take 2
    minutes, 4 seconds to get to the end of her question. Just as Sharon
    restates the question to confirm it was understood, Elizabeth starts to
    repeat everything she had said minutes ago. A great answer as well.

    i have to disagree we are made in his image and we are strengthened through
    christ who strengthens us there for we are capable of anything. it is
    weather the person is strong enough in their beleives that they will not
    fall from god. If the person is ment to fall away they will only the chosen
    will continue

    I read A New Earth, The Secret, and A Course in Miracles- which is like a
    bible unto itself. I was really into them at the time, but when I converted
    to catholicism I threw them away. I didn’t realize they were bad, I just
    realized I didn’t need them anymore. However, I feel that the rule about
    concentrating about something, letting it go, and it will come to you is
    real. It happened in my life before I heard about those ideas. How do you
    explain that?

    @savethehumans100 @savethehumans100 The “law of attraction” is not Quantum
    Physics, and even if it were, any scientist that has done work in that
    field will tell you that the theory of does not apply to the macro
    level…meaning there is no “proof” for it in every day life. Also, as a
    Christian you ought to ask yourself if Scripture actual supports the idea
    that a human beings can manipulate energy simply by thinking about it, or
    if that type of power is reserved for God alone.

    Wrong. She gave wrong advices to wrong people. She shouldn’t tell things
    about Abraham to suicidal people. She miscommunicate things by try to
    reason and explained things literally. What this suicidal lady actually
    asked was: “is life worth living?” She is not a good communicator. She
    should just have said: God loves you, life is worth it. Enjoy your life.
    That’s the REAL Abraham teaching. Abraham teaches LOVE LOVE LOVE, and
    “enjoy live”, which is aligned with Catholic teaching.

    I have a friend who is a Christian Scientist and they believe in this Law
    of Attraction… I always found it crazy, since I was born and raised
    Catholic, now I know why…

    The full quote from “The Book of the Laws”-Do What Thou Wilt Shall Be the
    Whole of the Law. Crowley was the foremost black magician of his time.

    Not scientifically proven? Do you know anything about Quantum Physics? I am
    a Christian, but I am not so closed minded to think that Quantum Physics
    does not exist, it is scientifically proven. Did you know that the very act
    of observing light changes it’s pattern of movement? It’s proven. Which
    means, everything, including light, you, me, the rocks and trees and the
    dirt we walk on, has some level of awareness. It is written in the Word
    that if we do not praise Him, the rocks and trees will.

    i also wonder where those who use the secret and are still beleivers of god
    have done wrong as long as they beleive that it is a gift from god. god
    turns all things for god……. is that correct or does the bible lie? i
    think its correct there for it can also be used for good. and im not sure
    how this is sorcery it depends how you use it and weather you leave god and
    look only to the secret
