The Secret Things of God Jan 16, 2010
I enjoy this dvd very much, partly because I already have such a respect for Dr. Cloud and his work both in print and on New Life Live radio. But I didn't buy the dvd for that reason, but rather to learn more about our Creator, and I am not disappointed in the presentation. My intent is to watch it, along with a dvd about prayer, every 3-4 mos. & just let the words gel in my heart and soul. Definitely a quality teaching to help counteract the false teachings that our culture is being deceived by.
Good vid. Jun 21, 2009
This is a good video & expands on The Secret on a religious base. Not bad. Any Christian & any interested in Christian-Judaic teaching should get this. It is a good watch.
Discover All of the Things The Secret is Missing Apr 29, 2009
If you are a Christian, and you have seen the Secret, you may feel like I did: there's something missing. It also didn't help that Rhonda Byrne made it sound like some big conspiracy had been hatched to keep all of us from knowing the truth?
After all, what Byrne teaches is from the Science of Getting Rich by Wallace Wattles, a book I might add that outlines the process from start to finish, including the fact that God is involved. It's nothing like the Secret where all you have to do is think your way to success. No action required.
Regardless, after reading The Secret, I have to say that I was severely disappointed. It took longer to watch the movie than it did to read the book, and there really wasn't any difference between the two. Even worse, it was a lot of metaphysical garbage. I've learned that without God in the process, The Secret may work, but it certainly won't lead to the level of happiness, joy, and peace we achieve in following Jesus Christ.
That's why this movie is so vitally important. It goes beyond The Secret to reveal what the Bible has to say about how we are to really live our lives. Too many today get Christianity wrong and because of it, they lose out on the life God really wants them to have.
For me it was understanding how to operate within God's laws and live the life I want. What we sometimes don't understand is that the life we really want is the life that God really wants to give us. God made each of us for a purpose. When we avoid living that purpose, we often fail to reach our full potential.
One thing I liked about this movie that the Secret just completely failed to cover is the information on relationships.
The Secret originally comes from the Science of Getting Rich by Wallace Watttles. The problem with The Secret is that the author only focused on a small part of what Wattles was saying. She also put a metaphysical spin on it, and although Wattles studied metaphysics and philosophy, he was still a Christian minister, and there was no escaping what he knew the Bible said about money, relationships, and how we were to live our lives.
In order to fully live the life we were created for, we have to learn how to get along with others. We also have what makes good relationships if we want to have the kind of relationships that will bring us satisfaction and joy in life and enrich our lives. Although money and personal satisfaction are important, ultimately relationships are the thing that make or break us.
The bottom line is that this movie covers everything that Rhonda Byrne failed to include in the Secret and kept the Secret from being anything more than a bunch of metaphysical BS. What this movie clearly shows is that there's no need for us to be afraid of living the life God created for us to live. God has our best interests at heart. When we live the life he created for us, we get a life better than we can even imagine. We can trust God with our lives. He is the one who created the healthy desires of our hearts in the first place.
If you want everything that The Science of Getting Rich/The Secret type books can provide for you, then watch this movie. Filled with scripture and step by step instructions, you'll go the rest of the way to finding the life you want.
The Secret Things of God: Rip-off of The Secret Apr 12, 2009
This is a weak attempt to put God and Religion into the wildly popular 'The Secret' movie. The original was a stand-alone movie that worked fine on it's own for people who may be spiritual, but aren't interested in religion and all of it's judgements. This is a low budget movie, especially when compared with the original. I'm not sure how they were not sued by the makers of 'The Secret," but it really isn't comparable anyway.
The Secret things of God Sep 7, 2008
It's a knock off of the original Secret, and has an argument for every topic. It's a great message and explains alot, But didn't disclose full Bible verses, you can tell they didn't work on the same budget the original video did. I would recommend it for those who are searching for some answers. It made a lot more sense to me than the original.
