78. Overcoming the Lies of the Enemy-Lie #6: Positive and Negative Vibes
Show Notes

I hear these phrases so often spoken by Christians and especially among Christian teens and young adults…phrases like, “I’m not getting good vibes about this.” Or “Hey, something bad happened, I need you all to send me your positive thoughts and vibes.”

 I think so many Christians use these phrases because they are such widely used today as a part of our culture. You may be thinking, “Well, I have said these phrases, but I don’t really even know the meaning behind it. It just seems like something nice to say to encourage someone who’s going through something bad.”

 I love that your heart is to encourage others, but I don’t know about you, but if something happened to me that was crazy, somebody’s “positive thoughts” or “positive vibes” aren’t going to do anything to help my actual situation. 

So, why do we use the word vibes as Christians? I read this on upsidedownfaith.com, now I don’t know much about them, but just read this article on vibes. They answered this question and I want you to think about whether or not it’s true. They said, “vibes are more socially acceptable than prayer.” And to a lot of people, “Good thoughts are stronger than the power of God.”
