Oprah as a theological leader???

might be old news to you. but wow. Just stole this video from a friend (thanks Scott). Ignore the narration, and the drama before and after the clips. The narrator has his own agenda, and the book they promote at the end of it seems to have political ties, etc...I don't support whatever that kool-aid book is saying.

But just in her own words, and the words of the confused Christian to her...and the words of the author of this book they're all reading together....wow. Take a few minutes, and listen for yourself...


Interesting that the author would quote Jesus saying "you are the light of the world" (Matt. 5:14)....but then ignore Jesus saying "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." (John 14:6)

Seems as if they're looking at the belief (or feeling, as Oprah puts it...which is a whole other topic of lunacy) of Jesus Christ as Savior as a sort of "debatable" aspect of Christianity. I'm pretty sure Jesus is a bit more prominent than that. Should someone tell her?

She "figured it all out" at the age of 26 or 27...that God could not be jealous, and still be God (omnipotent, omniscient, etc.). That God is a feeling, and an experience of emotion, etc. Wow. Really? And THAT is what is leading to all these people following you away from Christ?

Still...gotta love those Dr.Oz episodes, right?

Looking around online, you find people standing up for Oprah. Saying things like "she does a lot of good in the world", etc. I won't argue that. Whether she's done it for the right reasons, or to build the "O" empire, is up for debate. But still, that shouldn't enable her to buy the position of a spiritual leader in the lives of so many as she has.

Anywho...I posted this just in case you're like me, and hadn't heard all this yet. It's probably important for us to realize this is going on.

Someone from our Life Group at church passed this around via e-mail. It's very disturbing to see the word twisted in such a way. If this ends up being anything like her book club, there will be thousands of people soaking in every word, instead of picking up a bible.
