God vs. god.......

I just wanted to take a minute to bring up a topic. A few of us were discussing the "Oprah church" as it is being called this weekend. Today on the Revive Our Hearts feed over on the right side of this blog is today's broadcast. It is entitled, "Learn to Discern". It is a discussion between DeMoss and 2 pastors concerning this New Age movement which Oprah is pushing.

If you have the time, you may read it or listen. It gives some good Biblical information to counteract some of the twisted info which is presented by the Oprah clan.

It is sad to me that so many people can be deceived to believe these untruths. It is scary to me that Oprah has chosen to be so vocal concerning this topic. She has such a following and she is using her influential status to promote false teachings.

How important it is to share the true Gospel of God's love for us! People are searching for an answer to the unhappiness in their own lives. What a great opportunity we as Christians have to share that God is a jealous God and He loves us so much that He wants to give new and abundant life!

It is so very scary to think of all the "sheep in wolf's clothing" out there. Yet another reason to cling to God's word, so that we will not be deceived!

2 Peter 2:1-3

1But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them—bringing swift destruction on themselves. 2Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute. 3In their greed these teachers will exploit you with stories they have made up. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.

That was a very disburbing video I saw with Oprah and that weasely-looking guy... who could justify following someone like that? They will be revealed and their fall is just a matter of time. I pray that their followers will open their eyes to the real truth...

John 14:6
Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."

I am cracking up about the "weasley little guy" Tammy is talking about because I thought the same thing when I saw the video a couple of weeks ago. We tried to share it with Ken's mom, who is a strong Oprah supporter, but it's like she didn't even hear it. I may try to record the Demoss thing and take it to her on a cd. Anyway, there are millions of people being deceived everyday by her. Well, there are millions being deceived by Tom Cruise and other famous celebrities. It is very scary and it's very scary for our children. We must guard everything they listen to or watch.
