The Secret vs. Christianity: Introduction

One claim put forth in Rhonda Byrne's incredibly popular book "The Secret" is that the "Law of Attraction" is entirely compatible with Christianity, and not just compatible, but is even taught in the Bible and used by Jesus Christ.

These are bold claims, so I thought it might be useful to explore the things taught in "The Secret" and compare them with things taught in the Bible and see how Byrne's claim holds up. This post is just the intro… I'll attack this according to the basic claims of "The Secret" and deal with each claim separately. I'm actually not sure how many "parts" this will be… could be ten or so.

In the end, I intend to answer the following question(s):

1. Is "The Secret" a philosophy that is compatible with Christianity as Rhonda Byrne claims?

And if we find that it is NOT compatible, we should answer this question along the way:

Does Rhonda Byrne's claim that it IS compatible merely a mistake made from ignorance (lack of basic knowledge) or is it actually a lie, where she is intentionally trying to deceive her readers?

Please stay tuned…

  1. I hope you're going to turn this series into a video and stick it on you tube; This secret thing is one of the seducing doctrines of the last days that people will be following having not endured sound doctrine and thus departed from the Faith; Thank God Jesus continues to pray for Us!!! ;)
