The Gospel According To Oprah

It's amazing how many Christian women have become influenced by Oprah to consider her (seemingly) "spiritual" words as truth. We can see how vitally important it is to "rightly divide the word of truth." 2Tim.2:15
Be a "Berean" and examine everything you hear from so called "wise" people of our day. Know what God's word says, and choose your heroes carefully.

Oprah was raised in a bible-believing church and knows a lot of the Bible and the "Christian talk", but that doesn't always mean you're a follower of Christ. It seems like she is always trying to fill a void in her life.

Every Christian knows that the Bible very emphatically states, again and again, that JESUS IS THE ONLY WAY.
"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth , and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." ~John 14:6
And also, living the doctrines of the Bible is very important.
"That henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;" Ephesians 4:14
"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires," 2 Tim.4:3

It's frightening to think of how much influence Oprah has. So many speakers say we must do away with the blood of Jesus and being held accountable for offending God, then it's easy to do away with our sin and guilt.
"Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them." Romans 16:17

Guilt is not bad when God uses it to bring us to repent.

I am so glad you have posted this on your blog. I've watched Oprah for years and have admired her in the past. But, I have become aware of the philosophy that she has and has been teaching through your show and the books she promotes. I've also noticed how she is always trying to fill some sort of void in her life. That shows that no matter how much money and influence you have...if you don't have are still so empty.

I am not ashamed to say that Jesus is the only way.

Thanks for sharing this. I had heard about this but didn't research it. It opened my eyes to new things about her. It is true that you can have all the riches and things money can buy, but without Jesus, you are nothing.
