The Law of Attraction, also known as “new thought,” is the philosophy and concept that humans have a special connection or relationship with the universe to the extent that the universe can respond to our thoughts and words, whether they are positive or negative.

It is the belief that humans can attract negative or positive energy or circumstances into their lives through their thoughts and words. In other words, “like attracts like”. For example, if we speak and think positively, the universe will respond by providing us with positive outcomes. However, if we speak negatively and think negatively, the universe will respond by giving us negative outcomes.

The term “Law of Attraction” is used interchangeably with terms like “positive confessions,” “positive affirmations,” “name it and claim it,” “making declarations,” “karma,” and “visualization.”

As a result, the Law of Attraction asserts that as humans, we have the ability to create our own reality of what we want and desire by employing various New Thought techniques such as the principles of speaking positive words and having positive thoughts that are in sync with our specific desires, dreams, or desires. So, according to supporters of the Law of Attraction, anyone who diligently practises its new thought concepts can become whoever they want to be, have whatever they want, accomplish whatever they want, and create whatever life reality they desire.

The Law of Attraction has roots and a history in occultism, the New Age movement, and Buddhism. The term “Law of Attraction” first appeared in a book called Isis Unveiled, written by Russian occultist Helena Blavatsky in 1877.

As a result, the new thought techniques and principles known as the Law of Attraction are mostly based on occultism, witchcraft, or New Age philosophies. The concepts and principles of the Law of Attraction are channeled demonic spirits. Both Helena Blavatsky and Alice Bailey, well-known New Age occult authors, have written books while being influenced or inspired by demonic spirits. Adolf Hitler was known to have incorporated Helena Blavatsky’s occult teachings and Law of Attraction principles into Nazism.

The Law of Attraction, like many deceptive concepts and doctrines, is a philosophy with some elements of truth. The overall concept, techniques, origins, and principles of the Law of Attraction, on the other hand, are unbiblical and extremely dangerous.

The concepts and teachings of the Law of Attraction are so popular that they have infiltrated many churches around the world. Many false teachers affiliated with the prosperity gospel movement, the Word of Faith Movement, and the NAR (New Apostolic Reformation) have infiltrated the modern church with the Law of Attraction.

Law of Attraction concepts are very popular and are consistently taught by many life coaches and motivational speakers around the world, in addition to being prominent within the New Age and occult. Other New Age Keepers are also deceiving the public in this current moment in history, by making them think they are part of the Truth Movement:

Part of the reason for the Law of Attraction’s popularity was due to the book and documentary The Secret. Many famous people, including Oprah Winfrey and preachers like Joel Osteen, have also promoted the Law of Attraction. So the Law of Attraction concept appeals not only to atheists and the occult – for several decades, its concepts and teachings have slowly infiltrated within deceived churches and religious groups.

The Law of Attraction teaches objectives which are also taught by the New Age and occult world and are very similar to those which are taught by the Word of Faith and prosperity gospel movement.

These are the Law of Attraction objectives:

  1. Use The Law of Attraction to attract money, wealth, influence, or power.
  2. Use The Law of Attraction to attract success and abundance.
  3. Use the Law of Attraction to improve your mental and physical health.
  4. Develop mutually beneficial relationships in order to expand and sustain your success and wealth.

The principles and techniques of the Law of Attraction always appeal to men’s fleshly desires. The principles of the Law of Attraction always appeal to the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life / or the pride of possessions (1 John 2:16).

The underlying teaching of the Law of Attraction is that if you diligently practice its concepts and principles, you can get whatever you want and attract all the material prosperity you want.

This is why many New Age philosophies are compatible with the Word of Faith and prosperity gospel movements’ false doctrines. The Law of Attraction objectives and principles have nothing to do with the Gospel or encouraging a genuine relationship with God; rather, it is used as a vehicle for one to simply try to get whatever their flesh desires without regard for God’s divine will or sovereignty.

As a result, this new thought philosophy and its concepts are popular among both secular and occult groups, as well as false or deceptive beliefs.
