The Worst Bad Theology Alert [so far] of 2007: "The Secret"

This is an extremely popular book endorsed by Oprah [the idol/god of many American women].

Here are a few quotes to whet your appetite:

"Nothing [good or bad] can come into your experience unless you summon it
through persistent thoughts" (p. 28).

"Your thoughts are the primary
cause of everything" (p. 33).

"Your current reality or your current life is a result of the thoughts you
have been thinking" (p. 71).

"There isn't a single thing that you cannot
do with this knowledge. . . . The Secret can give you whatever you want" (p.

" will come to know how you can have, be, or do anything you
want" (p. xii).

"You are God in a physical body. You are Spirit in the
flesh. You are Eternal Life expressing itself as You. You are a cosmic being.
You are all power. You are all wisdom. You are all intelligence. You are
perfection. You are magnificence. You are the creator, and you are creating the
creation of You on this planet" (p. 164).

"The earth turns on its orbit for You. The oceans ebb and flow for You. The birds sing for You. The sun rises and it sets for You. The stars come out for You. Every beautiful thing you see, every wondrous thing you experience, is all there for You. Take a look around. None of it can exist, without You. No matter who you thought you were, now you know the Truth of Who You Really Are. You are the master of the Universe. You are the heir to the kingdom. You are the perfection of Life. And now you know The Secret" (p. 183).

" one will stand in judgment of [your life], now
or ever" (p. 177).
