What exactly is Manifestation and Law of Attraction?
Manifestation is essentially the practice of bringing something into the physical realm by using a combination of thoughts and feelings.
It is part of the Law of Attraction and many people are familiar with it. Law of Attraction, which is also known as “manifestation” or “attracting things to you”, is based on the idea that like attracts like, so if you think about what is good for you, you will eventually bring good things to yourself.
Many people believe that manifestation can be used to create your life just as you want it.
It has even been suggested that manifestation can be used to heal various health ailments, but it’s important to understand that manifesting does not work in this way for everyone.
However, it doesn’t have to be a physical object; it could be love or peace etc.
Why Do Some Christians Advocate Against Law Of Attraction?
Here are a few reasons some Christians are against manifesting:
- They believe it ignores the sovereignty of God.
- They believe that the manifestor becomes God.
- They believe God gets zero praise when we get what we want
1. “It Ignores the sovereignty of God”
They think that whilst manifesting we put more faith in our thoughts than seeking God’s will.
This isn’t true since God is the true creator of all things.
When you manifest or try to manifest many things you are not forgetting God.
We get what we put out in the universe.
However, the universe is created and designed by God.
This is like saying if you are a waiter and hope for a tip, you ignore the sovereignty of God since you didn’t think about God at that moment.
This would only ignore the sovereignty of God if the manifestor didn’t believe in God.
2. “Manifestor becomes the God”
They assume that believing that we are creators and the masters of our own destiny is the same as you believing in other gods or calling yourself a god.
This is again not true because we are not the creator, that is God.
You don’t create anything in this world, you just transform different things into other things.
We only control our thoughts and feelings.
Our beliefs aren’t true unless they’re based on truth (God).
When you manifest or try to manifest many things you give credit where it’s due – to God who created us all.
It also doesn’t mean we think of ourselves as God, but instead, believe that we are created by Him.
Therefore, manifesting doesn’t give us the power to become like God or take away from what He has done for us.
It actually makes you more aware of your creator and all his gifts; it’s not about thinking of yourself as an omnipotent being who can do anything you want.
3. “God gets zero praise when we get what we want”
They assume that people don’t praise God for things you get from manifesting.
However, this isn’t true because when you get what you want from manifesting, it’s a result of your thoughts and feelings.
You should actually thank God for these things since He is the one who created us with positive thinking abilities in the first place!
It doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t praise Him anyway or always wait on Him for things, but instead be thankful.
When you manifest or try to manifest many things you are always giving credit where it’s due – to God who created everything in the first place!
Is Manifesting and Law of Attraction A Sin?
I believe that manifestation is not inherently bad or sinful.
It can be used for good, just like anything else in the world, including money and technology.
However, if you’re trying to manifest things that are against God’s will, then this would definitely be considered wrong.
It would only be a sin if you didn’t believe in God. And the fact that he is the true creator of EVERYTHING including the universe.
Manifesting has its benefits and can be done responsibly as long as it isn’t used to take away from God or anything else that is wrong.
It’s important to not forget the true creator, which is always going to be God!
