Who is deciding what you believe? Oprah, Joel Osteen or GOD?

8 Comments

The world and the church are being indoctrianted for what will be the new religion one day. Lucierferism, Satanism, Secularism, Humanism. A “religion” with no absolutes. Other than the one absolute they teach which is all roads lead to God.

Who is your teacher? The likes of Oprah, Joel Osteen or God?

Do not be afraid to test this. Just make sure God’s Word is your plumbline. Anything else, will lead you astray.

Know this: who and what you believe does determine where you will spend eternity. So which is it? The ear-tickling star-studded sugar coating liars of today? OR GOD? Your choice. 

Think not that you have a problem with me, if you refuse to see the truth. Instead, you have a problem with God.

Glenn Beck and Oprah Winfrey Launch New Age Programming for 2011

I tried to warn Americans in 2010 that I believe Glenn Beck is guilty of performing a bait and switch on millions of Americans. Beck went from being a TV and radio talk show host that discussed public policy, history, and current news to preaching the same Universalism and New Age theology that Oprah Winfrey has being been preaching for years. In fact, On Saturday, January 1, 2011, Oprah launched her New Age programming for the year with the Oprah Winfrey Network. Oprah drew more than 1 million viewers for its first night on the air.

Glenn Beck has clearly become the Oprah Winfrey of the right and many Christian authors and pastors are eager to appear on his radio and television program despite his heresy because, like Oprah, Beck has taken little known authors and made them a lot of money by promoting their books.

Many Christians continue to defend Beck despite the fact he is becoming more and more blatant in his New Age preaching. I expect Beck will continue to gather around him a huge audience that is looking for a spiritual experience that tickles the ears.

On his TV program on January 4, 2011 Glenn unveiled what he calls the “E4 Experiences” that he will be promoting for 2011. Part of the theme he will be promoting is nothing short of New Age heresy and blasphemy. Beck proclaimed:

Over the next 12 months, all Mercury divisions, radio, television, books, digital and stage will focus on what I call The E4 Solution. The four Es consist of: Enlightenment, Education, Empowerment and EntrepreneurshipWe will challenge ourselves and those who choose to chart this course with us, to find what we as individuals really believe, challenge what we think we know and dig deep to find out what we are each capable of.

The “E4 Experiences” include Enlightenment, Education, Empowerment and Entrepreneurship. The two that are the most disturbing were described by Beck on a giant poster that included the following wording. Enlightenment: God – “I AM That I Am” Miracles, faith and Divine Providence. Empowerment: Yes I AM! Yes I Can!

I have noticed this theme taking place in advertisements on TV. Companies endorsing their prodects using the words, “I am.” This is an anti-christ spirit setting itself up among us. It is one of esteeming self over God. Bride of Christ, there is only One “I AM.” His name is God, Jehova, Jesus, Lamb of God, King of Kings and Lord of Lords, Yeshua — the great and awesome I AM.

On the January 4 program Beck preached:

I choose to ReFound this amazing nation by rediscovering within myself, and my own circle of influence, the principles and ethics that defined American exceptionalism.

So Glenn thinks the answers for America’s spiritual, moral, political, economic, and cultural problems can be found by “rediscovering within myself” some kind of New Age enlightenment or that man is really the “I AM”?

I AM is a title that is to be reserved for God Himself. In Exodus 3:13 God told Moses that when the people of Israel ask for My name tell them, “I AM WHO I AM.” And He said, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.'” In John 8:58 we read, “Jesus said to them, ‘Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.'”

I personally prefer the King James version which reads like this: And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM — Exodus 3:14 — There is a big difference between the words WHAT and THAT.

Oprah has promoted the “I AM” theme when she pushed the book The Secret that teaches the law of attraction.

In Luke 21:7-8, (And they asked him, saying, Master, but when shall these things be? and what sign will there be when these things shall come to pass?

And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.)

Jesus foretold that when people say they are god by using the title “I AM” it is a sign that we are living in the end times. We are also told to run away from the people saying “I AM”. Many of our nation’s pastor’s and Christian leaders did not run from Glenn Beck but ran to join him in a spiritual service and enterprise.

It is going to be an interesting 2011 and we will be watching and writing on the religious trends that will continue to reveal that a one world religion based on pagan spirituality is being accepted on both the right and the left.

Oprah – Preacher, pastor or something else?

Leave a comment

Following article gotter here:
http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=112150

You know what a preacher is, don’t you? Southerners know; a preacher is distinct from a pastor because a preacher can reach the masses.

A preacher rears back and thunders an oracle from God. A pastor, however, holds the hand of the dying and dispenses kind words.

That’s why America’s most popular pastor today is Oprah Gail Winfrey. The problem is, her brand of spirituality, and her (vast) stage make her the most dangerous woman in America, as she shares oracles from … gods.

How often have you heard a solid evangelical voice comment favorably on something that was heard on Oprah’s show? The truth is, her truth is taken from hordes of spiritual sources.

Long-time apologetics teacher Josh McDowell and co-writer Dave Sterrett do the country’s churches a great service by boldly speaking to Ms. Winfrey’s spirituality. In the just-released “O God: A Dialogue on Truth and Oprah’s Spirituality,” McDowell and Sterrett present a primer for understanding the source and outcome of Winfrey’s long association with religious gurus Eckhart Tolle, Marianne Williamson and Kathy Freston.

Born into poverty in Mississippi, Winfrey (named after the biblical character in the book of Ruth, “Orpah”) attended a rural church and was nicknamed “The Preacher” because of her ability to memorize Scripture. It is fascinating to note this early influence on her life, because it has enabled the media multi-millionaire to mix traditional Christian concepts and language to the “new spirituality.”

(An ironic aside: the biblical Orpah, after the death of her husband, returned to the Land of Moab, to a people who worshiped many gods.)

“O God” begins with a quick story that illustrates just how seductive Oprah’s brand of faith is, recalling an exchange between two friends: one an open-minded seeker enamored of Winfrey’s goodwill efforts around the world and her friend, a former Hindu with discernment into the ways of global spirituality. In fact, the entire book is an exchange between these two women and it makes for a fascinating snapshot of the culture at large, so divided over what is truth.

A key to understanding Oprah’s view of religion is her idea that our feelings can lead us to truth. An early encounter in a Baptist church, in which the preacher thundered that God is a jealous God (as he outlines in the First Commandment) didn’t sit well with the ambitious television personality. She decided that, because she believed God to be a God of love, he could not also be jealous. These were the beginnings of her subjective views of religion, God and the Bible.

The authors do a masterful job weaving truth and worldview into this friendship between Lindsey (who has lost her father to cancer, and is searching for comfort) and Avatari, the former Hindu, now Christian. The book uses an effective writing style that makes it perfect for a seeker. Even a disciple of Oprah would be drawn in.

A theme that is explored in “O God” is the idea that the God of the Old Testament is an angry one who must be rejected on this basis. This idea is the father of many spiritual children, ranging from Oprah to liberal clergy like Marcus Borg, who jettison the reality of the God of the Bible, to invent one who is allegedly kinder and gentler. It is an alluring trap.

“O God” is also valuable for pointing out the danger of that journal of narcissism, O, the Oprah Magazine. (Seriously, how can a person who puts herself on the cover of every issue be worshiped as a selfless giver? I don’t know, either.)

The magazine’s editors – and namesake – cleverly drop articles about wearing pants that flatter your figure in with articles on spirituality. This is one of the chief ways that Oprah is able to dispense her poisonous worldview, which is presented as a double scoop in a waffle cone. Who could resist such sweet offerings?

Other Oprah favorites include the idea that all paths lead to God, and there is no divine, eternal punishment for the wicked. Oprah uses the many tools available to her, mostly her television empire, to dispense what is in reality a repudiation of truth.

It is no secret that “de-programming” an Oprah groupie is not a common occurrence, since, as we mentioned at the beginning, the global do-gooder is so popular everywhere, including in churches.

“O God” is a major triumph in apologetics work, one of the best exposés I’ve seen, since it utilizes a “quick-read” style with plenty of information in a non-threatening format. Shoot, the slick cover even looks like a pro-Oprah book one might find at a big-box retailer.

In the end, one hopes that the person who is intensely searching for meaning and truth be led to that truth by this terrific book.

Oprah missed the Calling, but can we pray anyway?

I have always thought about the passage, “Train up a child the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it,” would mean exactly what it says. So does it mean the same for Oprah also?
I have to admit the following video softened my heart towards her and anyone else who had started out young in life with the truth and ended up in deception. There could go I if not for the grace of God.

What if every christian began to pray for her?

BEWARE OF OPRAH’S NEW AGE “LUCIFERIAN” RELIGION!

I am not a great Jack Van Impe fan, yet, he does explain the simple truth in this video.

George Bush was asked, “Do we all worship the same God? Christian and Muslim?”

He responded, “I think we do.”

George Bush was wrong. We do not worship the same God. The Muslims do not see Jesus as God. Christians do. So how can Muslims and Christians worship the same God?

George Bush: “We have different routes of getting to the Almighty.”

He is wrong again. There is only one way to God and that is through his Son, Jesus Christ.

Oprah: “God in the essence of all consciousness, isn’t something to believe, God is. And God is a feeling to be experienced, not a believing experience. If your religion is a believing experience, if God for you, is still about a belief, then it’s not truly God.”

I find it very interesting that Oprah’s god is much of the same within the church today; one of feeling, not so much believing in. But what does Jesus say?

Mark 16:16 “He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.” – JESUS –

John 6:40 “And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day.” – JESUS –

Obama: “My individual salvation depends upon our collective salvation… our individual salvation depends upon out collective salvation…my individual salvation is not going to come about without a collective salvation. For the country, unfortunately, I think that recognition requires we make sacrifices. This country has not always been willing to sacrifice nessacary to bring about a new day and new age.”

NOWHERE in the Word of God are we told anything about a collective salvation. This is New Age thought in making everybody one.

Oprah: “I have found the answer. It is the same question our nation has been asking. Are you the one? Are you the one? I’m here to tell you, he is the one. He is the one. Barrack Obama!”

Actually, she found nothing but a devil, a wolf in sheep’s clothing for masses of people to follow as some messiah or savior. He is an anti-christ. When someone like Oprah has no godly disccernment, you can expect the ungodly to look to anything and everything but the one true God. 

Jack Van Impe on leading the audience in prayer: “I’ve been mixed up in error…come into my heart. Save me.”

No mention of sin, no mention of repentence. Oh how the church has fallen into the lie that we have to be politically correct in all things!

Oprah; another anti-christ among many

You know what? I hope The Lord takes his Saints from the earth before this religion of Oprah’s takes over the world. She is as much anti-christ as the anti-christ himself — whoever he will end up being.

Behold America: Your new spiritual leader

This is what we can expect to be leading the Whitehouse in spiritual matters when Oprah is such a big part of the Obama’s life. Oprah is of an anti-christ spirit and those who follow her teachings are of the same. Anyone who once confessed to be a christian (such as Oprah)and follows her teachings has become a part of the falling away. You need to repent and turn back to the truth.

MandMEvangelists:

I have not been a big Benny Hinn fan for diferent reasons, never-the-less, the following video sets straight the difference between Oprah’s “gospel” and the true Gospel. I do not question the sincerity of Benny Hinn leading hundreds to the Lord or the ones who came forward that night. Benny Hinn presented the truth of the the Word and they came forward, acknowledging their need of a Savoir, Jesus Christ, the only begotten son of God, slain for our sins and rose from the dead for the likes of you and me.
