MINDLESS OVER MATTER

There is a great flap been going around the last number of years. It has taken many forms but the essence of it is mind over matter.

“If you can think it, it will be.” It centers around controlling all negative thoughts by not thinking them, replacing them with positive thinking. It follows the usual path of taking a little truth or principal and adding some irrational ideology to it, and coming up with the answers to life.

By associating their ideology with successful men (declaring they found this truth) it finds validation, and being unchallenged it stands as truth.

Another method of this is to take a force in the universe such as magnetism (which is the power of attraction) and make the application that all the facets of life are controlled by the power of attraction. If you learn the secret of attraction then you can do, or have anything you want. This applies to health, wealth, and love (the big three) your positive thoughts become magnets that draw these things to you.

These powers of attraction evangelists have much in common, the main issue is to tap into people’s need, wants and greed for these are the tools these self-proclaimed gurus use.

Going on, there are those who use the same methodology when preaching. The end being the same and that is to enrich themselves, and have power over people. They tell you what to think, how to think it, and then use one of the many techniques for extracting money from your pocket to GOD. (Which in reality is into their bank account.)

These charlatans will use the scriptures to prove their points, never mind the context or what the Holy Spirit had in mind when He moved upon the Biblical writers to write.

Whether in the secular or religious field, they always have their out when what they say fails in the lives of real people. It is always you are not controlling you mind with positive thoughts or you aren't believing and it’s your fault and not the fault of my truth. This leaves the seeker defeated and most times with a lighter purse.

Some of the secular teachers will use scriptures in their presentation for a little extra validation for those who have some spiritual sense about them.

Just as the scripture says “A little leaven, leavens the whole lump.”  Teachings that contain untruth causes the whole of their truth to be a lie.

One of the vilest acts that can be carried out is when a professed minister of the gospel uses a Christian’s dedication to GOD to manipulate them for their own benefit. It is evil in action, perpetrated by greed by those who in the end time will hear these most dreadful words of all “Depart from me, I never knew you.”

There is some truth to be found in the statement “Mind over matter,” but as practiced by present day gurus it has become an exercise of the mindless.

Big ideas don’t make you a mental giant any more that quoting scripture makes you a true expounder of GOD’S word
