Perhaps your response would be that Buffett manifested his success, whether he used that label or not. But that is the thinking of a person who conforms other people's experiences to his own framework, just as you decided that the teachings of Christ are congruent with your beliefs, despite the ample evidence that the teachings in many areas conflict with your beliefs. This shows a basic disrespect for ideas and individuals.
I don't feel they conflict with my own beliefs especially considering I have applied his teachings and had success with them. And wouldn't you be guilty of doing exactly what you said I am guilty of?
