Manifestation is the idea of bringing something you want into existence through aspirational thought practices. This mind ritual is touted by people like Oprah, prominent wellness publications, and social media influencers. For Christians and non-Christians alike, this idea seems delightful. Who wouldn’t want to gain the desires of their heart by exercising a pattern of thought? But what spiritual implications does this have, if any?
This week, Peter, Aaron, and guest-hosts Adam Powers, Dani Van Nortwick discuss:
- [02:07] – How do we define manifestation?
- [08:31] – Is “Christian manifestation” a new idea?
- [13:30] – What does the Bible say about speaking things into existence? What does the Bible say about our thought life?
- [25:24] – What about Mark 11:23-24 and other passages (Luke 11:9, James 5:16) that seem to imply that manifestation is biblical?
- [36:05] – What should Christians do instead of manifestation?
