Why is it that the Bible is not good enough for Ms. Winfrey?

Because she is Antichrist.

Oprah believes she is god.

Not the God but a god

Thanks for the ping, Mr Silverback.

Oprah and blasphemy — what a surprise. If she teaches this, she is likely to be dam’ned real good.

“Because she is Antichrist.

Oprah believes she is god.

Not the God but a god.”

That explains her support for The Want.

I just watched a YouTube video on this topic this morning. Maybe Oprah’s new religion is the reason her viewership is down. An awful lot of Christian women who know the Truth may be getting fed up with the crap Oprah sells.

Oprah has been possessed and infested by the doctrine of devils.

That Old Rugged Cross she dismisses so impudently is where my Saviour died and shed His Blood for me. I'll be clinging to that Cross long after Oprah Winfrey has heard the Words "depart from Me ye accursed, into the fire prepared for the Devil and his angels!"

Whether she likes it or not, Oprah is going to one day bow down on her knees and confess with her mouth that "JESUS CHRIST IS LORD" and no number of free cars or bags of goodies will get her in the Kingdom of Heaven.

She needs to get right with Jesus RIGHT NOW because tomorrow is promised to nobody, and it is appointed once unto us to die, and then the Judgment.

And that is no "Secret".

That was a funny movie! Ground Hog Day! Oprah has been on TV too long and has got it into her head that everything that comes out of her mouth is like the Gospel.

There are only two religions.

Hers is just another in the long line of “man is basically good” versions.

The good news is that none of them (the gates of hell) will prevail over the other religion. :)

The thing that worries me is that it might be more from her Obama shilling than the religion. Now, of course I dislike the Democrats, but it would still be disturbing to me if masses of American women are thinking “False prophet, OK; endorses a Dem for President, she can jump in a lake.” Or even worse, “Wow, I was loving all that great spiritual teaching, but then she got political.”

Seriously, if you can find anywhere in this thread or anywhere on the Internet where I've said Ms. Winfrey has no right to express herself or should be censored in any way, I'll send you $100. Ms. Winfrey has every right to tell her listeners the oldest lies in the Universe, and I have every right to call it a load of garbage and point the way to the truth. If you have a problem with that, be sure and let me know.

No, those are quotes from the work she is basing the radio show on...and they're just the tip of the iceberg. Just the fact that the book "channelled" Jesus should be enough to eliminate it from contention.

Hey Mr. Silverback, don't let our resident devil's advocate get to you there, Stuart is a good guy, he just likes to ask questions,,,,and more questions,,,,and additional questions,,,,and yet MORE questions,,,,he's just an inquisitive sort of fella!

And I'm still praying for him.

Thanks again for this post Mr. S, and if you would add me to your *ping* list, it would be appreciated!

The Lord be with you FRiend!

Instead of reading it, and opening their hearts to it, some people just interpret it from afar to meet their needs.

My Bible says you cannot serve God AND money. (Matthew 6:24)

THAT appears to be Oprah’s problem, IMHO.

Why is it that Oprah's assumed 'priestess' character reminds me so much of Jezebel? I do so wish I could spend a few quiet minutes with Oprah, privately, with an open Bible.

Well I doubt that anyone could find fault with that, I certainly can't.

Although you reminded me of an old saying,

"You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink...
... And you can lead a horticulture, but you can't make her think."

Hope you're having a good week FRiend! :)

I've thought it is Stedman Graham who influences Oprah in this area. From a March/April 2001 interview:

INTERVIEW: STEDMAN GRAHAM
MAKING IT HAPPEN

Stedman Graham’s steps for success.

By Patricia Baldwin

You dedicated your book to Oprah Winfrey. Can you leave us with some closing remarks about her and what it means to you to have someone in your life who obviously shares your strong values and beliefs?

It’s interesting about her. She epitomizes the “process.” She understands the process because she found her passion. She loves to talk. She’s made a career out of communication. And she does it very well. She does it better than anybody I know. And she’s passionate about it. It’s the one thing that she loves more than anything else she’s ever done. She’s been in television since she was 17, but it was later that she discovered her love and discovered her passion. She’s been able to build a life around that passion. That’s the answer for everybody.

She’s an example of being able to understand how the process works. She’s been able to build a vision. She’s been able to plan it every single day. She’s built a strong team around her to make it work. She makes good decisions based on having good information. She’s one of those fortunate ones, along with [businessmen] Bill Gates and Warren Buffet, who was in our class last week. He talked about the passion of making money. He just loves to be able to make money. It’s not about spending money. It’s not about the luxury of money. He just likes making money. As a child, he had a coin changer and he was very good at numbers. He put all of that together, based on his passion, and he built an enormous business empire.

So the passion can be a talent?

It’s “Where’s your genius?” It’s the genius in everybody. Where is it? What is it? What’s your talent? What are your skills? What makes you unique? That’s what you have to find. And then you can build a life around that because that’s what drives you. That puts the emotional piece into your life — the bond between heart and job, so to speak. Heart and work. Heart and destiny. Connect all that together. But you’ve got to connect your life to your heart. If you don’t, you’re misaligned. You just go through the motions looking for things to do, hoping that it will satisfy you. You’ll never find it until you first search within to find out where your true power is and where your true passion is. That truth is the fuel that keeps you going in spite of all the obstacles and difficulties you might have in your life.

I share it with Scott, a business associate and friend in Florida who I used to freep with when he lived up here. In a quiet and gentlemanly manner he made scores of Dems lose their temper when we freeped Barack Obama, and Dick Durbin tried to shout him down. I remember on Election Day in 2004 we went to Dubuque with a HUGE Bush-Cheney sign and another sign that read “Flush the Johns.” We took turns shaking a plunger at passing cars, too. Good times. :-)
