I Confess I watched Oprah’s Television show for many years and usually took issue with some that criticized her.. However, I did not see the show on a daily basis, so naturally a few years ago I was taken aback by some of her comments and guests (of a spiritual nature). I began then to question this woman whom I had at one time greatly admired..I remember thinking..wow with her power to influence so many.I hope she gets it together because she certainly has enough power to take many down the wrong path.
As many others, I thought she did a great deal of good. So when I began to doubt and question and pray for discernment with some of her comments..I was blown away and deeply saddened.
“Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing. but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. Matthew 7:15 We have to be careful my friends, we must investigate for ourselves..no one can read the bible for you..Investigate and ask God to help you understand, If we attended church each week for the rest of our lives we would probably have the equivalent of a kindergarten education in His word. We read other books, we look at the bible and say, I just don’t understand or I don’t like to read, meanwhile we can easily be led whichever way the wind blows..Ask Him to help you..Psalms 32:8 says “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go, I will counsel you and watch over you. Do not be like the horse or the mule, which have no understanding but must be controlled by bit and bridle or they will not come to you.” I have to admit, many times in my life I have been like a horse or mule..and sometimes still SLIP that bridle off. John 3:3-2, John 6:63,John 10:1-18, John 10:27-30
Know that New Age doctrine is alive and well..it started in Babylon and that’s another story..actually it is a very old age doctrine..Let’s not be deceived.
My greatest hope for you is that you will be informed..so I bring you Oprah on You Tube and an excellent expose from sources below.. You may comment all you like… I am not here to argue but to inform.. You will have to make up your own mind as to what wind you will follow.. As for me, you know where I stand.
John 14:6 Jesus answered: I am the way the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
I would just like to add Oprah, that God is not Jealous of you..He is jealous for you. Imagine a parent that loved their child so much..yet that child preferred the neighbors down the street.. Or your relationship with a husband or your significant other, you believed they loved you and you loved that person with all your heart, you would walk over fire for them if need be..but one day they left you for another..Yes God is jealous for you..Not of You.

Hat tip WordForIt
If you haven’t heard of “A Course in Miracles” or the proposed “Peace Alliance”, then please pay attention. “New Age” queen Oprah Winfrey is promoting both, and it seems that what Oprah wants she gets due to her financial status and her loyal fans.
Starting January 1, 2008, she began a daily feature on XM Satellite Radio featuring “A Course in Miracles”-one lesson a day. And also, this year, she will have her own television network.
Marianne Williamson has picked up and run with the “Miracles” course, which was channeledto a woman back in the 1960s. In 1965, Helen Schucman heard an “inner voice” saying, “This is a course in miracles–please take note.” For seven years, she took spiritual dictation from a demon who said he was “Jesus”. “A Course in Miracles” has now become the “New Age” bible.
Here are a few statements from the course:
* There is no sin.
* The journey to the cross should be the last “useless journey”.
* Do not make the pathetic error of “clinging to the old rugged cross.”
* The Name of “Jesus” is just symbolic of all the gods to which you pray.
* The recognition of God is the recognition of yourself.
* The “atonement” is the final lesson man needs to learn, for it teaches him that, never having sinned, he has no need of salvation.
This should come as no surprise in these latter days as the Bible is clear that some will not give heed to sound doctrine but rather listen to the doctrine of demons (II Tim. 4:3,4).
But the story of Oprah’s and Williamson’s push for all things unusual and unrighteous does not stop here. Williamson is trying to get a Cabinet level seat as a part of the “Peace Alliance” push by the two women. Check out the U.S. Department of Peace website.
Think about what the Bible has to say about peace apart from the Prince of Peace. It says it will be a futile effort and even bring destruction (I Thess. 5:3). The Antichrist will play off of peace, but Daniel says “by peace he shall destroy many” (Dan. 8:25). Yet Oprah and friends believe this “Peace Alliance” will usher in an era of global peace founded on “New Age” spirituality. They refer to it as a “civil rights movement of the soul.”

Radio Note: Warren Smith is one of the best expounders on these issues for when he was a “New Ager,” he was caught up in such things, particularly “A Course in Miracles.” Hear my hour with him on “Radio Archives” for February 2, 2008, hour one. He outlines his story in his book, “From the New Age to Amazing Grace” available in my print newsletter and soon on my Web site.

“Shame on Oprah!”
A Christian attorney for the Alliance Defense Fund is blasting Oprah for a show that aired last week entitled “237 Reasons To Have Sex”. I didn’t watch it, but I did see the ads for the show.
ADFspecial counsel Pat Trueman says it is shameful that Winfrey would advocate destructive behavior on her national talk show. “Shame on Oprah!” says Truman. “There are lots of children who watch the show. Many adults; many, many Christians; she’s got a loyal following because she does have good things on her show.”
But he argues that because of Winfrey’s status, giving a forum to people with what he describes as “anti-Christian” and “sinful” values only serves to popularize such behavior — and that encouraging adultery and pornography can only harm marriages. – OneNewsNow
Since when has anyone recognized Oprah as a Christian icon or role model? She surely produces interesting TV, and does wonderful humanitarian work. She is well known for her charity, her defense of women and children against abuse, as well as many other causes. But she is not a saint.
The recent sex show isn’t anything new. Last year she had Meg Ryan on talking about her work for the U.N. in India. In the interview, footage was shown of Ms. Ryan talking to under privileged women and girls about the joys of masturbation. Anyone who ever has watched Oprah knows she lives with her boyfriend, without benefit of marriage; she’s pro-gay, pro-choice, pro a lot of stuff that isn’t exactly Christian. She is also anti a lot of evil stuff – but that doesn’t make her an authority on anything – and her show, along with her philosophy is certainly not the gospel.
desirous of helping humanity – yet her theology is more New Age than it is Christian
