In March, I had posted from Slice of Laodicea.com regarding The Source of the Secret DVD, a promotion of The Secret – The Law of Attraction. See the post here.
The Secret was originally written by Esther Hicks by channeling “Abraham”, a group of spirit guides (demons). To harness the power of The Secret, one must think positively, which changes one’s environment and events positively and therefore a person becomes a magnet for “good things”. Anyone can use the method and be successful, without Jesus Christ. The Secret also teaches that a person can become One with the universe. Just the fact that this spiritual process came from demons should keep any Christian away from this material.
The Source of the Secret trailer explains how one can use The Secret, but take it further to the SOURCE of The Secret. Since demons are the ones who “wrote” The Secret, the SOURCE is satan. There are no two ways about it — either a spiritual teaching comes from God, or it comes from satan.

Another version The Source of the Secret trailer with Ron McIntosh, Robb Thompson, Oral Roberts, Brett Fuller, Lynette Lewis, Michael Hammer, Rabbi Daniel Lapin, and Ed Gungor:
Since John Bevere wasn’t mentioned or interviewed in the trailers, I emailed his ministry messengerinternational.org two months ago to find out if he was aware of the promotion. I just now received a response (bolding in original):
Thank you so much for sending us your concern. We’d love to take this opportunity to explain our participation in the Christian project, THE SOURCE OF THE SECRET.
In 2006, THE SECRET, became an international bestselling book and DVD. It was considered by many a testament to the power of the human mind. The teaching of THE SECRET (a repackaging of The Law of Attraction) revealed a spiritual hunger in individuals searching for a better life. The purpose is to encourage individuals to cultivate a positive mental and emotional outlook, though THE SECRET has one significant missing ingredient– it failed to credit the Source and Creator of all the universal laws (including the law of attraction).
With a passion to explain the true source behind THE SECRET, a few Christian leaders (Dr. Rob Thompson, Shad Wehrli and Tom Newman) produced a DVD called THE SOURCE OF THE SECRET intended to take viewers beyond the surface truths of THE SECRET to discover God. Through a combination of interviews with teachers and authors, the purpose of THE SOURCE OF THE SECRET is to introduce people to the Creator of all laws at work in the universe. THE SOURCE OF THE SECRET delves deeper into ideas behind attaining wealth and health, conscious versus sub-conscious, heart versus mind, and gratitude. Interviews feature Oral Roberts, Ron McIntosh, Brett Fuller, Dr. Ken Bakken, Dr. Alex Loyd, Dr. Gene Flood, Ed Gungor, Rev. Kerry Shook, Father John Calbhom, Rabbi Daniel Lapin, Lynette Lewis, Bob Harrison, Charles Mann, Michael Armand Hammer, Brian Klemmer and more.
During my interview on THE SOURCE OF THE SECRET, I had the opportunity to share my passion for Jesus, who is the Source of all life. We thank you for standing for this Truth with us, and we do appreciate your heart for holiness and devotion to the faith of Jesus Christ. It is an honor to have people like you who are supporting the work God is doing at Messenger International.
For His Kingdom,
John & Lisa Bevere

John and Lisa say: “The Source of the Secret is to introduce people to the Creator of all laws at work in the universe.” Unfortunately, the Beveres, et al, are introducing their audience to demon activity, to satan, and the works of the flesh. When one leaves the moorings of the infallible Word of God, this is the result - apostasy. Did Jesus die on the cross and rise again just to placate those who are “searching for a better life”, so we can help them “delve deeper into ideas behind attaining wealth and health”?
Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron. 1st Timothy 4:1-2
