I've really enjoyed your posts in this thread. I've been thinking a lot about it and my intentions in it.
A point I want to make is although I didn't actually use a Jesus affirmation in regard to manifesting my BMW, I don't see a problem with that. What someone chooses to ask Jesus, or Buddha, or God or anyone else for that matter is between Jesus, Buddha, God or whoever else they are asking. Just because it might not live up to someone else's view (Kanzeon's) doesn't make it any less valid. The only true authority on Jesus is Jesus, everything else is just someone's opinion or belief. Obviously it might have seemed kind of silly to ask Jesus, one of the greatest philosophers of all time for a shiny new BMW
but I think you get my point.
I actually got the idea for that affirmation after watching Earl Nightingale's The Strangest Secret
"Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened."
He has people write either their purpose or a major goal (it's been a while since I've watched it) on a notecard and that on the back and carry their notecard with them at all times.
