I was considering creating a post on Ken Blanchard's affiliation with "The Secret" these days, but have seen that Carla at morebooksandthings has already done an excellent job of exposing his spiritually twisted collaboration with other New Agers. To read her post entitled It's No Secret Anymore, click HERE. She includes links to Lighthouse Trails who posted the original article. Be sure to follow her links to see this latest partnership for yourself.

Ken Blanchard claims to be a Christian and has done interviews with Wayne Teasdale (proponent of contemplative prayer); this added to the fact that Awana has just incorporated Blanchard's program into its prison ministry project (see this post). I don't understand how anyone who claims to be a Christian can promote New Age practices, as "The Secret" clearly does.


From Lighthouse Trails:

Rhonda Byrne, the author of The Secret, is a disciple of a couple named Jerry and Esther Hicks. In the Acknowledgements of The Secret, Byrne thanks the Hicks and "the teachings of Abraham." Abraham is a group of spirit guides that Esther Hicks channels for guidance on spiritual issues. On their website, they state:
Abraham, a group of obviously evolved teachers, speak their broader Non-physical perspective through the physical body of Esther [Hicks]. Speaking to our level of comprehension, from their present moment to our now, through a series of loving, allowing, brilliant yet comprehensively simple, recordings in print, in video, and in sound - they guide us to a clear connection with our Inner Being--they guide us to self-upliftment from our total self [god-self].


Scripture clearly states:

"Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers:
for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness?
and what communion hath light with darkness?"
2 Corinthians 6:14
