Information and Reflections for the FBC Family

Have you heard ‘the Secret’?

{mosimage}Today’s guest poster is Erick Cobb.

I want to make sure you know what the book "The
Secret"
is all about.  Many people you know have probably read
it.
 
Don Whitney has reviewed it here:  http://biblicalspirituality.org/secret.html
 
But if you have no time for that, just read these two quotes from The
Secret (you don’t need to read the whole book):
 
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).

What are the fans of The Secret really looking for?  How is the Gospel the
solution to their quest?  How would you show the errors of The Secret in a way
that respected them and pointed them to the real Jesus of the Gospel?
 
Give them real hope,
 Erick.
