The Twisted World of Oprah and Friends
Posted by wordforit on April 12, 2008
If you haven’t heard of “A Course in Miracles” or the proposed “Peace Alliance”, then please pay attention. “New Age” queen Oprah Winfrey is promoting both, and it seems that what Oprah wants she gets due to her financial status and her loyal fans.
Starting January 1, 2008, she began a daily feature on XM Satellite Radio featuring “A Course in Miracles”-one lesson a day. And also, this year, she will have her own television network.
Marianne Williamson has picked up and run with the “Miracles” course, which was channeled to a woman back in the 1960s. In 1965, Helen Schucman heard an “inner voice” saying, “This is a course in miracles-please take note.” For seven years, she took spiritual dictation from a demon who said he was “Jesus”. “A Course in Miracles” has now become the “New Age” bible.
Here are a few statements from the course:
* There is no sin.
* The journey to the cross should be the last “useless journey”.
* Do not make the pathetic error of “clinging to the old rugged cross.”
* The Name of “Jesus” is just symbolic of all the gods to which you pray.
* The recognition of God is the recognition of yourself.
* The “atonement” is the final lesson man needs to learn, for it teaches him that, never having sinned, he has no need of salvation.
This should come as no surprise in these latter days as the Bible is clear that some will not give heed to sound doctrine but rather listen to the doctrine of demons (II Tim. 4:3,4).
But the story of Oprah’s and Williamson’s push for all things unusual and unrighteous does not stop here. Williamson is trying to get a Cabinet level seat as a part of the “Peace Alliance” push by the two women. Check out the U.S. Department of Peace website.
Think about what the Bible has to say about peace apart from the Prince of Peace. It says it will be a futile effort and even bring destruction (I Thess. 5:3). The Antichrist will play off of peace, but Daniel says “by peace he shall destroy many” (Dan. 8:25). Yet Oprah and friends believe this “Peace Alliance” will usher in an era of global peace founded on “New Age” spirituality. They refer to it as a “civil rights movement of the soul.”
We live in strange and deceptive times so to sharpen your discernment, visit our “Spiritual Deception” category at the Web site. As believers, let us thank God for the real course in miracles. It’s called the Bible.
Radio Note: Warren Smith is one of the best expounders on these issues for when he was a “New Ager,” he was caught up in such things, particularly “A Course in Miracles.” Hear my hour with him on “Radio Archives” for February 2, 2008, hour one. He outlines his story in his book, “From the New Age to Amazing Grace” available in my print newsletter and soon on my Web site.
