The Law of Attraction and Catholic Christian Though [4/4]   2 comments

Introduction

 

Since coming back to Catholicism this issue has been something a nagging side issue that I have sought to resolve. On one hand I have heard it solves every problem, and on the other hand I have told it is mere pseudo-witchcraft, the truth I think lies somewhere in the middle. When I began to try and integrate my increasing Catholic faith with things I have learned before coming back into the largely Christian fold, I tried to integrate The Law of Attraction with Catholicism and what I knew about the deeper Christian Tradition through a Catholic Online Forum and the fruits of said discussion I would like share with you today. I knew that people from The Law of Attraction school of thought wanted to cite some Christian Material as justification for their philosophy, so I wanted to take the time and discuss that with the reader today as well. After the scriptural and patristic discussion I wanted to discuss where else I had seen this issue of a person’s desires being discussed in light of the Christian Tradition. Finally I am intended to offer my final educated position on the matter as well as the criteria and procedure as to when one should consider using The Law of Attraction as a Christian.

The Holographic Universe: Its Implications For Christianity   Leave a comment

Introduction

I see in many new age circles these days the notion that the universe is a hologram and at the heart of this hologram is Mind, all things that happen are controlled by the Mind. This notion is not too far-fetched as science is starting to show that Creation Could Indeed Be A Hologram. What does this mean for a Christian however? Is it a sign that there is no God or does it confirm that there is indeed a God behind it all? If there is a God what kind of God is this, that would make a creation such as this? This post is my first scientific current events post, and I want to express my thoughts on this rather deep and profound issue. Read the rest of this entry »

Plato’s Republic: Political Manifesto or Psychological Model? [2/2]   Leave a comment

Introduction

Plato’s Republic has been cited as one of the foremost political programs to create a “Perfect Society” the ideal Totalitarian/Authoritarian Society in which Individual Liberties are stripped and extreme Collectivism takes over. However, what if this so-called Political Manifesto was not of a Political Nature at all, but rather a Psychological Model? Suddenly the notion of the Wise and Enlightened Overlord ruling over the large unenlightened mass of men would have to go from an external socio-political context to an internal moral, psychological, and even spiritual context. The aim of this post is to prove the latter, in order to correct the misconceptions of it being the former. Read the rest of this entry »
