Verses which seem to indicate Bible supports Law of Attraction:


Quote
Matthew 7:8 “For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.”

Matthew 18:2-6 He called a little child and had him stand among them. And he said: “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. (Folks, this means to have that positive belief like a child has as it listens to his/her parents tell them something- they just believe them instinctively- unless we have that kind of faith in the great spirit- we will not grow in spiritual matters and we will not attract the right things into our life)

John 10:10 Jesus said, "I come so that they may have life and have it more abundantly".

Job 3:25 when he said, "Because a dreadful thing I have dreaded, it has come upon me. And what I have been scared of comes to me." (Ah folks, this is using the law of attraction fully but in reverse of what you want. You attract whatever your think about habitually- good or bad)

Mark 11:24 “What things soever ye desire, When ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them”. (Friends, this is a powerful verse because it takes god’s judgement or favor OUT of the equation- it shows that you have whatever YOU belive- not whatever god feels like justifying that you should or shouldn't have; I heard a charismatic chrisitan preacher explain it like this: YOUR WILL IS GOD'S WILL)

Ephesians 5:20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
(Giving thanks is another positive tool to focus your mind positively and to draw more into your life the things you think positively about)

Matthew 7:11 So if you who are evil know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good things to those who keep on asking him!
(I quote that verse just to show that the bible doesn’t say you need not have good things but that god will give good things to those whom keep on asking- the implied message is that it comes to those whom are persistent in thought and have faith)

Matthew 17:20 I tell you the trust, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there” and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.

Ephesians 3:14-21 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

Luke 6:38 “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”

Luke 19:11-27 (New International Version, ©2011) The Parable of the Ten Minas 11 While they were listening to this, he went on to tell them a parable, because he was near Jerusalem and the people thought that the kingdom of God was going to appear at once. 12 He said: “A man of noble birth went to a distant country to have himself appointed king and then to return. 13 So he called ten of his servants and gave them ten minas.[a] ‘Put this money to work,’ he said, ‘until I come back.’ 14 “But his subjects hated him and sent a delegation after him to say, ‘We don’t want this man to be our king.’ 15 “He was made king, however, and returned home. Then he sent for the servants to whom he had given the money, in order to find out what they had gained with it. 16 “The first one came and said, ‘Sir, your mina has earned ten more.’ 17 “‘Well done, my good servant!’ his master replied. ‘Because you have been trustworthy in a very small matter, take charge of ten cities.’ 18 “The second came and said, ‘Sir, your mina has earned five more.’ 19 “His master answered, ‘You take charge of five cities.’ 20 “Then another servant came and said, ‘Sir, here is your mina (about 3 months wages); I have kept it laid away in a piece of cloth. 21 I was afraid of you, because you are a hard man. You take out what you did not put in and reap what you did not sow.’ 22 “His master replied, ‘I will judge you by your own words, you wicked servant! You knew, did you, that I am a hard man, taking out what I did not put in, and reaping what I did not sow? 23 Why then didn’t you put my money on deposit, so that when I came back, I could have collected it with interest?’ 24 “Then he said to those standing by, ‘Take his mina away from him and give it to the one who has ten minas.’ 25 “‘Sir,’ they said, ‘he already has ten!’ 26 “He replied, ‘I tell you that to everyone who has, more will be given, but as for the one who has nothing, even what they have will be taken away. 27.’” (OK, the important thing to remember about this is the last verse. The key is hidden in that one. Why do those who “have” – more will be given even more and those whom have very little- even the little bit that they have will be taken away? Sounds pretty mean and harsh if you do not understand the law of attraction. See, a person whom has abundance, expects abundance and attracts more of the same and it snowballs; the same principle is true for those whom do not have abundance. The good news is- if you consciously use this power you can build on your successes. Success builds more success.)

Galatians 6:7 – 8 “Do not be deceived. God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction.”

Matthew 21:22 If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.

Mark 11:24 … whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it and it will be yours.

Mark 9:23 Everything thing is possible for him who believes

James 1:5 But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt.

Proverbs 4:23 Be careful yhow you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts (That's the Law of Attraction right there folks in those two verses and here is another verse that sums it all up nicely:)

Proverbs 23:7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he.

Mark 11:23 For verily I say unto you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. (See, a master doesn’t rely on what is in his sphere of vision, but rather, relies on the assurance of the goodness of the great spirit to respond to his beliefs and starts projecting those beliefs of certainty with visualization and will power)

Philippians 4:13 I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.

Psalms 37:4 Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Deuteronomy 24:19 When you reap your harvest in your field and have forgotten a sheaf in the field, you shall not go back to get it; it shall be for the alien, for the orphan, and for the widow, in order that the Lord your God may bless you in all the work of your hands.
(Think about this one. It is instructing you that you are not to worry about possessions but to live with the belief that all good things come to you naturaly- so why stress out? If you were to be stressed out- that would be a lack of belief that good things are coming your way or flowing with you. Also, it is a message that in giving you are also showing the creative spirit that you are not worried about things and so do not need to hoard as you realize good things continually flow to you and also that you are an example of the great spirit in that you also give good things to others)

Joshua 1:8 This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success

Jeremiah 17:8 For he will be like a tree planted by the water, that extends its roots by a stream and will not fear when the heat comes; but its leaves will be green, and it will not be anxious in a year of drought nor cease to yield fruit (this is one of those verses written for those with eyes to see- it means that if you keep having the right thoughts, keep using will power, keep striving and not give up even when things seem bleak- that you will eventually see good things in your life again)

Psalm 35:27 Let them shout for joy and rejoice, who favor my vindication; and let them say continually, “The Lord be magnified, who delights in the prosperity of His servant.” (I added this verse again, to show that god delights in prosperity)

Mark 10:52 And Jesus said unto him, "Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way." 7:50 He said to the woman, "Your faith has saved you. Go in peace."

Matthew chapter 9: starting with 20 And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment: For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole. But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.And when he was come into the house, the blind men came to him: and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye that I am able to do this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord. Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you. And their eyes were opened (folks, these versus clearly show the principle of belief. Science has shown miracles over and over of people whom were cured of disease by believing they could rise above the circumstances. The mind has ultimate control of the body and is it’s captain. In these passages- it is not Jesus whom cures anyone but the individuals total 100% belief that allowed them to be instantly cured of an illness when they fulfilled whatever they believed they needed to do for the healing to be made manifest in their reality)

The Bible has been quoted for all sorts of reasons down the centuries, often by contradictory sects, cults, etc.

As such, it can also be quoted to support the Law of Attraction.

Shakespeare summarised it thus : "The devil can cite Scripture for his purpose" (Antonio, Merchant of Venice, Act 1, Scene 3)

This being the case, it is essential to consider the notion of "God" , as it is sometimes mentioned in the teachings of the Law of Attraction.

What is common among all Law of Attraction teachings is that our minds create our lives and world.

Quantum physics is referred to often in Law of Attraction teachings. Quantum physics teaches that everything we perceive with our five senses is actually made up of energy and vibration, and interpreted by our minds as solid, existing, etc .

As such, the teachings of the Law of Attraction are in fact closer (if  not the same as) Hinduism and Buddhism.

This totally contradicts the Abrahamic Creator God according to the conventional teachings of the main monotheistic religions, in which the Abrahamic Creator God is the creator of the world and is distinct and never a part of his creation, and this includes being distinct from human beings and their minds.

Here, I'll add to the list:

Psalms: 82:6 "I said, "You are gods, and all of you are children of the Most High. But you shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes."

Yes the bible can be quoted for many reasons. Yet I still feel that this quote fit nicely.

It may seem off topic but... Interestingly enough I have heard Jesus of Nazareth being that of a buddha. Philosopher Alan Watts describes it wonderfully.
