Spiritual, Mystic, Authentic

The last several weeks I have contemplated some simple notions if you will. For years people have been fascinated with death, after-life, and SuperHero figures. The above image is in the top search results on google images if you search massage therapy. Personally i don't see how this image has anything to portrait in massage therapy but yet it represents 70% + of all logos and marketing/advertising for massage therapist. But it is not limited to my field of massage. Doctors- Chiropractic, Nutritional, Naprapathic, Acupuncturist all alike. I have been asking myself what Anyone would in their right mind see someone who said their "qi" "chi" "ki" is out of line or blocked. here we have an invisible force that science has not yet really proven to exist on an imperical level. Yet so many are willing to believe some quack doctor (not all are quacks) that if they would let them put a crystal and play some music that your headaches will go away. or if i stick you with needles in just the right way time and "diagnosis" we can cure and heal cancers.

Obviously these are people who have stumbled on biblical principles of the spiritual realm of which we only know in part - that is, the natural realm- how can we as christians appropriate and harness this "energy healing" power without compromising our true faith? and then is it possible? Is it simply a matter of who is wielding the sword if it will be used to murder or protect?

I believe we can through the power of the Holy Spirit, the Authentic power. Bring 'em on I say. Let's go to the cafe's and the bookstores and the psychics and spiritual advisor's and take over their jobs. why are christians so afraid of this witchcraft? why are we so timid about the true power that will set a generation free? Why shouldn't we approach the guy at the table with a necronomicon or wiccan book or transcendental meditation

The problem I have is with the "Why is your way right?" thing. There are some people close to my heart who subscribe to this nonsense, but to explain it as Biblical only seems to justify (to them) their counterfeit experiences. It's annoying.

Pray and ask God for wisdom on how to explain it "biblically" without saying or referring to the bible. Like " ya there is this saying that goes 'a good name is more desirable than fine gold'. now to you and I we know its proverbs 22:1 but thye will agree (with Truth) and once you get them to enough truth then maybe you could point out that it all came from the bible. or perhaps its not for us to say their experience is counterfeit or invalid only that there is a more pure and powerful; in fact Infinite source that YOU have experienced and wondered if they wanted to check it out ...?

Thanks for commenting :)

I really have been thinking about that. I know some people in my school that I am pretty sure are into some kind of sprirtual thing, but they really don't know what they are messing with. I want to approach/ witness but I really have no idea how to do so or anything like that.

I Ravish :) maybe you can get a couple other Youth and a leader like david or timothy and organize a "discovery session" which would be a bible study incognito! :) invite these kids to hear a little bit of what the bible says and then faith will come you pray for them they get touched by god and poof! new converts :)
