Can You Be A Christian And Use The Law Of Attraction

    The church that I go to rejects The Law Of Attraction. I feel like it can be beneficial to anyone's life ( Christians or not ). What are your thoughts?

      The term "Law of Attraction" is a vague statement. Basically a positive attitude begets a positive attitude. If something is in alignment with biblical principals (not church principals) then I can't see why this would be a problem.

      You have negative people attracted to negative people, would this be considered a law of attraction?

      What is this Law of Attraction? Does it pertain to Physics like we have gravitation or it is something else? Define it and its basis.

      Thanks

      I think I'd change churches.

      It's pure nonsense.

      Sellers don't attract sellers, they attract buyers... lazy dreamers don't attract lazy dreamers, they attract con artists... vulnerable people don't attract vulnerable people, they attract those who would take advantage of their vulnerability... the list goes on and on...

        To me the best Law of Attraction is positive thoughts + positive actions.
        I have not seen anything to indicate that just thinking will make it so.

    If the 'Law of Attraction' is really a natural law, like gravity, then it will work whether you believe in it or not.  The Bible says, "For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks."  We are going to talk about and move towards the things we think and speak about.

        paarsurrey...you have seriously not heard of the law of attraction?
        Do a Google search for "The Secret". Neville Goddard, Joseph Murphy, Wallace Wattles, William Walker Atkinson, Napoleon Hill, Louise Hay, Esther and Jerry Hicks, any of those should get you started and give you a pretty good idea.

          I Google and I get from Wikipedia:

          "The Law of Attraction is not a scientific law. Critics note that it is unsupported by scientific evidence and violates scientific principles and understanding of the universe. [3] Instead, the Law may be explained as an illusion created by the connection between self-confidence and success or one's own perception, like the placebo effect."

          If I now say it is a myth of a law; will it be correct to say so?

          Thanks

    Joel Olsteen is a perfect example of how this can be applied. He truly teaches that God wants us to be happy despite our circumstances. The Law Of Attraction can be applied in oder to achieve this. He often says " Conceive and believe it "!

    It is only a myth of a law

      I can't really argue with you there.
      To me "Law" means it works 100% of the time as in the "Law" of Gravity.
      I have never seen anyone claim 100% accuracy with the Law of Attraction.

    I am a non-christian. But if I see a pretty girl who is a christian and I am attracted to her, Can I say that "the law of attraction" works? wink
