Warning:
The following article has graphic language but God fearing Christians should be
aware of what Oprah is promoting. Many teenagers watch her show on a weekly
basis. This is a must-read for Parents, Grandparents, Teachers and Pastors:

Would you like your Christian teenage daughter to befriend a 51 year old
unmarried woman who would talk to her about sex, homosexuality, the new age
movement, secular movies, secular books and how there are many roads to Godâ
€¦not just Jesus? Would you let your Christian daughter sit and listen to a woman
who would expose her to "luxury" items which you may not be able to afford?
Would you let your daughter be exposed to someone who does not hold true the
Christian beliefs and morals that you have so tried to instill in your daughter?
Have you
"spiritually child-proofed" your home?

By her own admission Oprah said on national television, a couple of years ago,
that there "couldn't possibly be" just one way to God. She conveyed her idea of
"many ways" to God and
that Jesus could not possibly be the only way.

Now in 2008, what is she up to? Consider The Following:

March 7, 2008 LifeSiteNews.com writes the following concerning Oprah:

Since the beginning of this year Oprah has offered daily classes on her XM radio
station on the book "A Course in Miracles." "A Course in Miracles" (or ACIM for
short) was written by another major player in the New Age movement, Helen
Schucman, who claims that the book was dictated to her by an interior voice,
which she identifies with Jesus Christ. In that course, the listener is taught that
there is no sin, is told not to make the "mistake" of "clinging to the old rugged
cross," and that the name of "Jesus Christ as such is but a symbol."

Oprah, who is a self-labeled "Christian", was recently named the "most dangerous
woman in the world" by Bill Keller, considered by some to be the world's leading
Internet evangelist. He accused Oprah of peddling the equivalent of "spiritual
crack." Keller has been warning the subscribers of his Daily Devotional for years
about Oprah and how she uses her TV program to promote every New Age
philosophy in the world, including the wildly popular book and DVD last year,
"The Secret," which teaches readers or viewers that simply by desiring them
strongly enough, one may obtain wealth, health and happiness.

However, rarely has Oprah shown more enthusiasm for a New Age guru than for
the so-called Eckhart Tolle, who takes his first name from the well-known 13th
century Catholic Rhineland mystic, Meister Eckhart. Tolle is the author of several
books including "The Power of Now," and, most recently, "A New Earth."

END OF QUOTE

According to E! Online News, "Close to 26 million faithful tune in weekly to
follow the gospel according to Oprah."

Are you a partaker of the Oprah fellowship? Are your children partaking? Beware!
Consider for yourself the following links and quotes (found in brown text) and
KNOW the person behind the pretty smile. What does she believe? What "New
Age" message is she sending? Should true Christians watch her show and give her
ratings? Should Christians support a person who believes there are many roads to
God and worse yet promotes such ideas openly on her show, webcasts, website,
etc.? Jesus said, "I am the Way...no man comes to the Father except by Me."

CHRISTIANS...my African American sisters and my fellow sisters in Christ...
There is such a thing as "right and wrong" and we should base all things
according to Scripture.

1Cor 3:11  
For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is
Jesus Christ.

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man
cometh unto the Father, but by me.


Is your watch set according to the correct time?

A man calls up a train station, "What time is the train departure to San
Francisco?" The employee at the station replies, "12:45pm sharp". The man
hurries to the station only to find that the train already left. He yells at the ticket
window, "I just called you up and asked you what time the train to San Francisco
was leaving. You told me, "12:45 sharp." The man behind the window replied,
"Yes sir, that is correct and the time is now 12:49." The man, very angry, pulls
up his sleeve to reveal that his watch says "12:38". The man behind the window
said, "Your watch is not set according to the correct time...with all due respect,
your watch is off sir. We operate in accordance with the Official US time."

One may be sincere and believe he is right but
his information is only as
accurate as the source from which he received it.
The man sincerely thought
his watch was correct only to find out that he did not set it in accordance with the
authorized official time and
he missed the train. Are you as this man? Does your
watch tick according to YOUR set timing? Is your watch set according to what
others have told you? Will you miss the train? The Bible is the ONLY authority
on which we can reliably base our viewpoints and our lives. God's Word is truth.

2Tim 2:19  
Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this
seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth
the name of Christ depart from iniquity.

Col 2:8  Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit,
after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after
Christ.

2Tim 3:5  Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from
such turn away.

What is the power they deny?
The Bible says the power is the Gospel-- that Jesus saves AND HIM ALONE!

Rom 1:16
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power
of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also
to the Greek.

Christ Jesus said that He is the ONLY WAY to Heaven. Oprah said, quoting an
author, that there are "many paths to what you call God..." Should you believe
Jesus or Oprah? There is no middle ground.

Even secular E! Online News in their article entitled, "Uprising at the Church of
Oprah " by Joal Ryan Oct 17, 1998, 11:00 PM PT

"The show used to be "kind of like having a girlfriend over when you [didn't]
have time to have a girlfriend over," says turned-off viewer Katherine Coble.
"Now it's like church."

"But a bad church with no God...Instead of God, God is Oprah."

There are approximately 26 million who watch faithfully her show. Are you a
partaker of the Oprah fellowship?

1Tim 4:1  
Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some
shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines
of devils;

Prov 14:7  Go from the presence of a foolish man, when thou perceivest
not in him the lips of knowledge.

1John 2:22  Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is
antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.

Eph 5:6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these
things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.


OPRAH AND THE NEW AGE - Hinduism Repackaged

On March 3, a live 10-week web seminar hosted by Oprah Winfrey and
Eckhart Tolle, author of "A New Earth," began. Both the book and the
online course purport to be able to awaken you and our world to life's
grand purpose. The spiritual web class has an estimated 700,000
participants. Is it any wonder that the Lord Jesus said,
"When the Son of
man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?"
(Luke 18:8).

A viewer asked Oprah the question,
"How have you reconciled these spiritual
teachings with your Christian beliefs?"

Oprah responded in the following:
"I've reconciled it because I was able to open my mind about the um...the
absolute indescribable hugeness of that which we call God. Um, I took God out
of the box because I grew up in the Baptist church and there were you know
rules and, you know, belief systems and doctrine and um I happen to be um
sitting in church in my late twenties and I was going to this church where you
had to get there at, you know, eight o'clock in the morning or you couldn't get a
seat, and a very ah charismatic minister and everybody was just, you know,
into the sermon and uh this great uh minister was preaching about how great
God was and how omniscient and omnipresent and God is everything and then
he said and 'the Lord thy God is a jealous God' and I was you know caught up
in the rapture of that moment until he said 'jealous' and something struck me
just and I was like uh I think about 27 or 28 I was thinking god is all and god is
omnipresent, God is all...and God's also jealous? Jealous...God is jealous of
me? Um, and something about that didn't feel right in my spirit because I
believe that God is love and that God is in all things and so that's when the the
search for something more than doctrine ah started to stir within me. And I love
this quote that Eckhart has...um this is one of my favorite quotes in chapter one
where he says, 'Man made God in his own image, the eternal, the infinite, and
unnameable was reduced to a mental idol that you had to believe in and
worship as my God or our God.' "

By such statements above, the Bible is reduced to a man-made book-- rather than
a God-breathed book. The Bible was given to man-- so that we would not only
understand our origen and history but moreover know the very PERSON of
God-- who He is and His plan for mankind. God's Word is to be believed. God is
love-- but Oprah, God is not jealous
of you, He is jealous FOR you. It's like a
parent whose child would not love them but rather would despise correction,
would desire to love... let's say a neighbor. Any parent out there would be
concerned if their child did not love them but rather loved everyone else
except
for them. It's the same analogy here. But sadly, God's Word is rejected by man
and the blessed Son of God-- His sacrifice upon the cross for our sins-- is
rejected. The New Age movement  rejects the blood sacrifice of the Messiah--
teaching in opposition to the Bible. The New Age religion denies the Cross of
Christ.

Oprah said:
"God is a feeling experience and not a believing experience. And if that...that
your religion is a believing experience If God for you is still about a belief then
it's not truly God.

What Oprah is teaching her loyal viewers is "New Age"-- which is Hinduism
repackaged for Western consumption. Oprah's teaching contradicts Jesus Christ  
completely for Jesus taught us that we must BELIEVE. Whom shall you follow
Jesus or Oprah?

The Lord Jesus said in John 3:18  
He that believeth on him is not condemned:
but he that
believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in
the name of the only begotten Son of God.

The Greek word, "believe," in the Bible means "to have faith in." Paul and Silas
said in Acts 16:31:
"Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved,
and thy house."  
(Why do Christians follow Jesus? See our article "Messiah Jesus Traced
Through The Hebrew Scriptures.")

What is a Christian?

Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary says that a Christian is:
"1. one who professes belief in the teachings of Jesus Christ..."

A True Christian is one who believes God's Word; they believe that Jesus died
on the cross for their SINS and that He rose again on the third day. They believe
and have received Him as their personal Lord and Savior. They believe Jesus is
the ONLY WAY into Heaven. They believe that the Bible is the FINAL
AUTHORITY. They believe the words that Jesus said. They believe in Him.

Jesus said,
" I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the
Father, but by me."

That is a VERY strong statement and either you believe Jesus or you don't.
There is no middle ground. Should Christians watch TV programs that contradict
the teachings of Jesus?

The bible says in Ephesians 5:11  
And have no fellowship with the unfruitful
works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

2Cor 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what
fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion
hath light with darkness?

Be not unequally yoked. Is tuning in to a TV show, five days per week, a part of
your life? Is it healthy for you spiritually? Pastor David Cloud had the following
things to say:

*** BEWARE OF OPRAH'S NEW AGE CHRISTIANITY ***
Oprah Winfrey is one of the most popular entertainers in America, and she has
built a near cult-like following among women through her message of self-esteem.
In June she went on a four-city tour called "Live Your Best Life." The thousands
of tickets, which cost $185, sold out the first day. The price of admission
included a workbook journal with subject titles such as "You Are Cocreating
Your Life" and "You Become What You Believe." Her message--a combination
of Christianity, New Age, mysticism, and self esteem--attracts an apostate
generation. She teaches women to believe in themselves and in a vague god of
their own imagination. She speaks of the miracle of life and the blessing of
salvation, but it is a salvation through self will apart from repentance and faith in
the blood of Christ. She speaks of faith, but it is a faith in self not a faith in the
Christ of Calvary. She teaches women to follow their hearts, but fails to warn
them that "the heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked" (Jer. 17:
9). She preaches moralism, but it is not the absolute divine morality as taught
in the Scriptures. Oprah told the crowds, "The universe is speaking to you right
now, in the voice of Oprah Winfrey."
[ Friday Church News Notes, July 27, 2001 (David W. Cloud,
Fundamental Baptist Information Service, P.O. Box 610368, Port Huron, MI 48061-0368, fbns@wayoflife.org) ]
=========================================================

When one visits the Oprah website, one finds a wide variety of things to read.
Ms. Winfrey also has a section dedicated to some of her favorite books.

"Discover the Power Within You" by Eric Butterworth

Oprah says, "This book changed my perspective on life and religion. Eric Butterworth teaches that God
isn't "up there." He exists inside each one of us, and it's up to us to seek the divine within."

Favorite quote: "But the greatest mistake is in believing that we are 'only human… ' We are human in
expression but diving in creation and limitless in potentiality."
http://www.oprah.
com/books/favorite/slide/slide_books_favorite_05.jhtml

Another book she features is called:

Reflections on the Art of Living: A Joseph Campbell Companion
edited by Diane K. Osborne

Oprah says: "Mythologist Joseph Campbell pulls together threads from various religions and cultures to
find a blueprint of how we can find a true sense of self."

Favorite quote: "The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are."

The new religion of this world is "anything goes" as long as "it makes you feel
good about yourself." Their motto is that one can take a little from Judaism and
Christianity and little from Hinduism and some from Shintoism, etc. "Take what
you feel you like from each one..." is what the new "religion of self" is all about.
Yet one making up his own philosophy in no way changes God's character.
One's belief about God does not change who God is. Your beliefs do not
change reality. The earth is round, even though you want to believe it is
square. Your belief does not change reality. Jesus said, "I am the Way..."
and so either you believe Jesus or you do not.

Oh the Bible is listed among Oprah's favorite books but it is on the very last slide
of the slide show at the top of a list among others. At the present time, the Holy
Bible is not even featured, as are some of her other "favorites". From the

DOES OPRAH PROMOTE MATERIALISM?

One website quotes Oprah as saying, "Though I am grateful for the blessings
of wealth, it hasn't changed who I am. My feet are still on the ground. I'm just
wearing better shoes."�

Consider the following articles:

Oprah's Favorite Things: Materialism Gone Mad

By ED MARTIN
ed@jackmyers.com
NOVEMBER 26, 2003 "There is no more revolting an
hour of television than the annual pre-Christmas edition of "The
Oprah Winfrey Show" in which Oprah herself promotes her
"favorite things" as must-have, must-buy goods that would also
make flashy Christmas gifts. Oprah herself becomes increas-
ingly excited as she unveils one item after another -- many of
them quite expensive, several of them decidedly unremarkable
with the galloping giddiness of a person who could never
afford such bounty but had somehow come upon it. "I have one
in every color!" the fantastically wealthy Winfrey gushed after
showing off a pricey sweater during this year's razzle-dazzle
display of materialism gone mad, which aired Monday.
Lately, Oprah seems to be championing wealth on her show
and in her magazine."

Anointed by Oprah
By ROB WALKER

Published: December 19, 2004

The Gingerbread Man Hot Salt Scrub
Picture a crowd, excited and demonstrative to the point of ecstasy. The source
of their enthusiasm is not mystical but worldly: they are about to receive a lot of
free products. In a post-election poll that aimed to put a different spin on the
''values'' debate, a plurality of voters named ''greed and materialism'' as
America's most pressing moral issue, but it is hard to imagine any politician
having the courage to challenge the idol presiding over this ceremony, because
her name is Oprah Winfrey, and the blissed-out crowd is her studio audience.

Tuesday, Aug 31, 2004
By R. Albert Mohler Jr.

"LOUISVILLE, Ky. (BP)--Oprah Winfrey, widely cited as one of the most influential and admired
women in America, showed herself to be an agent of moral insanity when she featured a program
celebrating
young children seeking sex-change procedures and transgender identities. In one episode
of "The Oprah Winfrey Show," the true nature of our modern sexual confusion was made clear, and the
broadcast should long be remembered as one of the most frightening hours in television history...."

Gays Recovering from Trying to Change - Oprah Winfrey show
Joel Payne praised Oprah and her staff for their acceptance when he appeared as a guest. For five
years he was part of an "ex-gay" Christian ministry and found it was
not valid for himself to change
his natural gayness.

The show is about people who
thank God for being gay, vs those who think they have to change into
something they are not. ...

It was
great to see so many homosexual Christians celebrating their sexual orientation as well
as their love for Christ.

One Reader wrote to Christianity Today with their thoughts on the Oprah article:
"The gospel according to Oprah offends no one, promises everything, and asks nothing except that
devotees earn their way to a nebulous salvation. The story here is the great hunger of the human heart,
which persists even in our self-satisfied, postmodern world.

Having tried it all myself, I can say from experience that only Jesus will satisfy and only the Cross can
save. But who can say? Oprah may yet repent of her sins and accept Christ and his saving blood. "

Islam According to Oprah : Is Oprah Winfrey a threat to national security?

The following snippet below is taken from a transcript of an Oprah show, July  
24, 1987, Transcript #W203. We are not sure how reliable the transcript is but
it is worth the time to read this interview regarding witchcraft. It is with Bob
Larson (...putting aside the fact that we could never endorse his show, he was
representing Christianity that day). The
bold emphasis is ours and does not
appear in the original transcript:

The entire transcript is found on:
http://www.skepticfiles.org/mys4/oprah.htm

WINFREY: What did you say about reincarnation?

Mr. LARSON: Reincarnation is a standard tenet of witchcraft.

Mr. STRIEBER: Standard tenet of -

WINFREY: There are a lot of people who believe in reincarnation, however,
that are not witches.  And I would like to ask you,  does she not have the right to
practice whatever religion she chooses to practice?

Mr. LARSON: Absolutely. Perfectly.

WINFREY: What is it that you have against her religion? Let me ask you,  is it
because it's not Christian, because she doesn't believe what you believe, that
it's wrong?

Mr. LARSON:  It's because
there is an eternity, there is a heaven,  there is a
hell.

WINFREY: That's what you believe, though.

Mr. LARSON: That's what God says. We're either going to believe what God -

WINFREY:
That's what the God you serve says.

Mr. LARSON:  That's what the Bible says, and that's what the God of the Scrip-
tures says, and one either does objectively accept -

WINFREY: Okay, so what about the Hindus and the Buddhists and the
Moslems, are they all wrong?

Mr. LARSON: God so loved the world, He gave his only begotten son -

WINFREY: Answer the question.

Mr. LARSON: Jesus Christ -

WINFREY: Answer the question. [crosstalk]

Mr. STRIEBER: He won't answer it directly.

Mr. LARSON: I'm answering the question. [crosstalk]

Ms. CABOT: Christianity is a minority religion.

Mr. LARSON: If you believe in Jesus Christ, you are saved.

WINFREY: But let me ask you this. Does that mean if you don't believe in Jesus
Christ, if you are Jewish and you don't believe in Jesus Christ, or if you are
of other religions and you don't believe in Jesus Christ, are they as wrong as
the people who practice witchcraft?

Mr. LARSON: The Bible posits where to go in the world and preach the gospel to
every  creature,  and every individual is judged according to their conscience
and the like knowledge of God they have according to the revelation of God  as
they have sought God beholding His wonder in creation. [crosstalk]

WINFREY:
But that's your interpretation of the Bible. That's your -

Mr. LARSON: That is historic Christianity.

We can't tell you who to watch on TV but what you put into your mind-- what
you watch-- will affect your Christian walk. What you watch on TV will affect
your viewpoint and the Bible says, "Evil communications corrupts good
manners." How can your mind be renewed in Christ Jesus if you are watching
secular TV shows that contradict the Word of God?

Rom 12:2  
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by
the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and
acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
