Okay, so I know I get on my soap box about Oprah a lot, but the way her doctrine is so mixed up and messed up REALLY bothers me because of the influence she has over so many women and people in our nation today, and really all over the world. It's our responsibility as Christian women to make sure we are questioning and evaluating what we put stock in, what influences we bring into our homes, and what theories and theology we buy into, no matter how small. This woman is powerful. She has money and influence, and is somewhat of a false prophet, if you will, so it's very disturbing to me. My friend Summer e-mailed me the latest project and "journey" Oprah is embarking on...just wanted all of you guys out there to be aware. I know she does a lot of great things for a lot of people, but this is pretty messed up stuff:

"Oprah and Friends" to teach course on New Age Christ

Jesus Christ being reinvented, redefined, and blasphemed and, this false New- Age Christ teaching is about to make huge inroads into the world, with the help of the queen of television talk shows, Oprah Winfrey.

Oprah Winfrey, beginning January 1, 2008, on her daily radio program will offer a year-long course on the New Age Christ , in a lesson a day and completely cover the 365 lessons from the Course in Miracles "Workbook."

Listeners will be encouraged to buy A Course in Miracles for the year-long course, and an audio version, recited by Richard (John Boy Walton) Thomas will be available on compact disc.

Those who finish the Course will have a wholly redefined spiritual mindset-a New Age worldview that include the beliefs that there is no sin, no evil, no devil. A Course in Miracles teaches its students to rethink everything they believe about God and life, and, bluntly
states: "This is a course in mind training" and is dedicated to "thought reversal."

The Course in Miracles -in reality-is the truth of the Bible turned upside down.

Oprah told her television audience that Williamson's book, A Course in Miracles was one of her favorite books, and that she had already bought a thousand copies and would be handing them out to everyone in her studio audience. Oprah's endorsement skyrocketed Williamson's book to the top of the New York Times bestseller list .

A Course in Miracles is allegedly a "new revelation" from "Jesus" to help humanity work through these troubled times. This "Jesus"-who bears no doctrinal resemblance to the Bible's Jesus Christ-began delivering channeled teachings in 1965 to a Columbia University Professor of Medical Psychology, Helen Schucman.

One day Schucman heard an "inner voice" stating, "This is a course in miracles. Please take notes." For seven years she diligently took spiritual dictation from this voice that described himself as "Jesus."

Here are some quotes from the "Jesus" voice of A Course in Miracles :

"There is no sin . . . "

A "slain Christ has no meaning."

"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 Christ as such is but a symbol... It is a symbol that is safely used as a replacement for the many names of all the gods to which you pray."

"The recognition of God is the recognition of yourself."

"The Atonement is the final lesson he [man] need learn, for it teaches him that, never having sinned, he has no need of salvation."

Popular author Wayne Dyer told his PBS television audience that the "brilliant writing" of A Course in Miracles would produce more peace in the world.

I heard about this last Sunday when we went to Glenview to see my niece get baptized. The preacher, as part of his sermon, was warning all of us about this. Seems interesting being that we have been studying Daniel, revelation, end times, anti-Christ, etc. What's scary is that these broadcasts are available to everyone and there are so many people that are so naive or weak that this will really have an impact on them and not for good, but evil. I wonder if Oprah has any Christians writing to her and spelling out the real Truth?

How crazy is this! I'm not surprised though. Oprah has been on my not-so-good list for sometime now. It is just so sad how people who are weak Christians, who "kind-of know Christ" could be lead astray so easily because this would still allow them to do whatever they wanted to do. Very concerning! I have a bad feeling about this.

Thanks for your post, I listened to Oprah's first webinar with Tolle's new book, A New Earth, and I posted on how Oprah has transcended from talk show host to uber-evangelist.
