Oprah is teaching false religion

A friend sent me this article about Oprah and her soon to air new series on her daily radio program. In this series she plans to teach on the New Age Christ from the Course in Miracles Workbook. This fascinates me. For as long as I can recall I always understood the power that this woman has over the American-not to mention worldwide public. I readily joke that I think she is the anti-christ or at least a false prophet. She speaks and it comes to be, not in a God-like sense of course but in worldly terms. Beth Moore in her study on Daniel believes  that Satan has to be prepared in each generation with an anti-christ, because he doesn’t know when Jesus is returning, so there is always someone at the ready. I half heartily believe that Oprah could be this generations anti-christ/false prophet and the content of this radio series suggest that I might not be completely off the rocker, given the outstanding number of people that hang on to her every word and believe that she stands for all that is right. I have included some of the article with a link at the bottom if you want to read further, as well as a link to Oprah’s site where some of the teaching is discussed.

Oprah Winfrey to teach daily 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 teachingsin 1965 to a Columbia University Professor of Medical Psychology, Helen Schucman.

  1. Oprah began her television “Oprah Show” with somewhat humility, and a thanksgiving to God for allowing her to have a television show. My, how far she has gone. She has become her own God. It’s very sad to see a human deteriorate right before your eyes. I long stopped watching her show on any regular basis. I just hope she either returns to God, or truly give her life to Christ and get saved. Life is brief, but eternity is forever.

  3. DEAR OPRAH, I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A FAN OF YOURS, UNTIL RECENTLY. I’VE DECIDED TO BOYCOTT YOUR SHOWS AND EVERYTHING ELSE THAT YOU STAND FOR. I AM SAD TO LEARN THAT YOU ARE PROMOTING LIES ABOUT JESUS CHRIST. I HOPE YOU REALIZE THAT THE BLOOD OF EVERY SOUL THAT YOU LEAD TO HELL WILL BE ON YOUR HANDS. YOU HAVE BECOME A POWER HEAD FOR SATAN. IF YOU CONTINUE TO TEACH THIS FALSE DOCTRINE ABOUT JESUS CHRIST, YOU WILL SPEND ETERNITY IN THE PITTS OF HELL. WHEN SATAN IS DONE USING YOU , HE’LL STRIP YOU OF EVERYTHING AND THROW YOU TO THE DOGS . IF YOU DOUBT MY WORDS, I CHALLENGE YOU TO READ 1ST. KINGS 21:23. PLEASE ASK GOD FOR FORGIVENESS, AND STOP THE LIES ABOUT JESUS. READ THE TRUE WORD OF GOD, THE HOLY BIBLE AND YOU WILL FIND THE TRUE JESUS. DON’T BE DECEIVED. GOD LOVES YOU, MORE THAN YOU COULD EVER IMAGINE. YOU NEED THE HOLY SPIRIT TO GUIDE YOU INTO THE TRUTH. ASK THE HOLY SPIRIT TO GUIDE YOU AND HELP YOU TO KNOW THE REAL TRUE GOD. WE ALL WILL BE PRAYING FOR YOU.

  4. I am very disappointed in Oprah Winfrey. We sensed something wrong when she backed Barak Obama! Never will I listen to her television program again and will remove her site from my favorites on the computer. The devil must be jumping up and down with joy since Oprah has chosen to be one of his followers. I believe in the true word of God and love my Lord with all my might. Nor will we listen to Robert Schuller’s Crystal Cathedral Church. We are including Oprah Winfrey in our prayers. God has blessed her so and she now denies him. Read 2 Timothy, chapter 3.

  6. Praise be to Jesus Christ who is Lord & God !!! As a former atheist and non-believer, who is now a follower of Jesus Christ, having seen His truth through the holy Bible and His Holy Spirit, I see in Oprah Windfrey the same prideful boasting and false humility that I once saw in myself and every other non-believer. People will follow anything but the Truth (yes there is only one way to God the Father–the Son of God, Jesus Christ).
    Jesus is the way and the truth and life. I myself would like for other ways (religions and beliefs) to lead to God, but God Himself tells us that there is ONLY ONE WAY. Now I can choose to call God a liar, which is itself a horrible lie, because God has never lied and never will lie, but every human being has lied. So we can believe people, who are all proven liars, or we can believe God the Father through his Son Jesus Christ, who has never told a lie and who laid down his life in love so that we are freed of our sin. People follow so many ridiculous ideas and theories–when I was a non-believer I studied all the ideas Oprah is promoting and much, much more as well–so called great intellectual ideas and philosophies in the world’s eyes–but they were all dead ends–false beliefs-LIES pure and simple that were promoted by the father of lies! So people will follow anything but the light–they will read Oprah and Tolle and Dr. Phil and every hollow lie that others promote for their own benefit and self-aggrandizement, but they will not believe and study and love the one Truth that has been given to all men and women–the Truth that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world and that we are all sinful and therefore need a Savior. I needed a Savior, and Jesus Christ came when I was at the end of my rope and cried out to Him! We all need to be saved from our sin, because all of our good deeds and high ideals and so called generosity and charity are a pinch of sand in the presence of God the Father and Son and Holy Spirit.
    We don’t have to condemn or judge anyone though, because Jesus said that anyone who will not accept HIm will fall under God’s punishment, and will not see His glory…if only people knew what they were trading for the self-assured prideful ways that are only leading to destruction. Jesus loves us beyond measure and there are “pleasures at His right hand” that none of us know about. When I look at what this world has to offer, it is like 1,000 year old bread that turns to dust in your fingers! May Jesus Christ, our beloved Lord and God who we serve and follow, may He turn their hearts away from the darkness toward HIm, the light of this world, and save Oprah and so many others from themselves!

    • Dr. Hale everything you said, beautifully I might add, IS the truth. I ask non-believers sometimes how they believe in a man’s ideas. I’m human and I know people are liars, greedy, etc. so I can’t understand how someone takes a strangers ideas and accepts them as their own. I mean he/she is no different than the non-believer. I know Oprah at this point probably accepts herself as a diety in herself. If people would read The Bible it will change their lives. I pray for the millions following Oprah. That they will come to their senses and turn to Christ. Still haven’t figured out why people follow Oprah, A TALK SHOW HOST, at the drop of a hat! Why not Maury?

  7. IF YOU WANT ACTION…WRITE TO THE COMMERCIAL ADVERTISERS & TELL THEM THAT YOU WILL BOYCOT THEIR PRODUCTS IF THEY DON’T PULL THEIR ADS FROM THE OPRAH SHOW, DUE TO SATANIC RELIGIONS. IF HER ADVERTISERS DRY UP, MAYBE SHE’LL THINK ABOUT HER CONTENT, SINCE THAT’S ALL PEOPLE CARE ABOUT WHO HAVE THEIR OWN TV SHOWS (MONEY, MONEY, MONEY & RATINGS, RATINGS, RATINGS). Marylynn wrote what I was about to…the consequences of leading millions of other souls astray is unthinkable. It is for the good sake of others to get these false doctrines off of the air. We could be selfish and say that it doesn’t matter to us where others go when they die, as long as WE are saved; but the Bible says that we are to spread the Good News of salvation through Jesus. A true Christian DOES care about wanting to see others saved & avoid eternal hell. That’s why so many people are so disturbed by Oprah’s false religious beliefs being aired on her show. She should keep these false doctrines to herself, so as not to drag others down with her. She’s been doing this on her show for at least 10 years or MORE. Back in 1998 she kept having a book author on her show every single week, who believed in the false doctrines of reincarnation! And she kept promoting his book EVERY SINGLE WEEK, until the guy was filthy rich.

  8. Ever since i was young Oprah was my role model but now hmmm.i’m very sad.For a mortal to denounce GOD ALMIGHTY,it’s bad.My family and i in Ghana would always pray for her salvation.As for her shows never would i watch them.Oprah accept Christ Jesus and be saved.God NEVER forgets HIS children including u oprah
