The Law of Attraction and the Bible-The Connection!!
First of all, I want to make it clear that I am not writing this article to help any Christian to decide if the concept of the law of attraction is something approved by their religion or to debate over any religious topic.
I was born in a Hindu family but I have explored Christianity to some extent, in my childhood I used to attend prayers regularly as one of my Christian friends introduced me to it.
I think I can talk about the connection between the law of attraction and the Bible because I have been reading Bible, Bhagvat Geeta and New Age books. I always keep my mind open for wisdom; I take from it what resonates with my inner being and discard what doesn’t, that’s just my way and I respect what is yours so, my intention here is not at all to challenge your beliefs in any way.
The reason behind my multiple attempts to avoid any conflict despite writing an unbiased, loving and informative article is that I know that each individual perceives the same information in different ways.
Here, I will just refer to a few verses from Bible that are concurrent with the principles of the law of attraction; my motive behind doing this is to shed light on the fact that all religious texts do point towards our creative ability.
Recently, I read a Christian blog where the author condemned the new age philosophy saying that according to the Bible humans do not have any supernatural power, I was totally disgusted by reading his blog because the author was not enlightening people with any kind of knowledge there instead his writing was disempowering, where he was just trying to impose his own convictions upon people which was a byproduct of his ignorance.
I would start with this verse which I consider will be very appropriate to depict our true potential:-
Genesis 1:27: So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.
We all were created in the image of god which means we too like almighty have the ability to create, we have been gifted the skill to write our own story and live it!
The next verse clearly explains us that all our limitations depends on our faith:-
Luke 17:6: If you had faith like a grain of mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you..
So, talking of having supernatural abilities..The above words say that our faith is responsible for what we are able to do. All our conditions and limitations are self imposed and we can rise above them by strengthening our faith.
Here is the verse which precisely explains that the higher power delivers what you have asked for, isn’t it the same as what LOA says? :-
Mathew 7:7- Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
If you have read the personal growth materials, you might be familiar with the concept that in order to make something happen in your life you need to work with your inner beliefs and remove doubts from your mind. Here is what Bible says:-
Mark 11:23- For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
I want to end this post with the verse based on which James Allen wrote his famous book “As a Man Thinketh” according to which you become the image of yourself that you hold in your heart:-
Proverb 23:7:-“For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he…”
