Idolatry is promoted on talk shows

Oprah Winfrey has become a guru to many. I even know some Christians who live nearby who receive her magazine, and I believe they have been influenced for the worse. Today I read a post titled Are You Attending the "Oprah Church"?. This post revealed the false religion that Oprah promotes. Those who are willing to listen to this false gospel deserve the same rebuke that Paul gave to the Corinthians . . .

But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he who comes preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or if you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted - you may well put up with it! 2 Corinthians 11: 3 - 4.

Idolatry is alive and well in our culture. How can we respond? How can we avoid being like the Corinthinas? We can simply loving God with all our hearts, souls, minds and strength, as the Great Commandment tells us to do.

  1. We also need to be praying for Oprah and her many "followers". I like that she gives away so much of her wealth to help struggling people/countries, etc. however she is so blinded by the Untruth. We, as born again believers should be praying for her and people like her as well as role modeling what Jesus would do, how He would respond and loving the Lord with all our heart, mind and soul. I used to watch her show from time to more really as I just don't watch daytime tv but it is so sad to me that she has neglected her Baptist roots, etc. We need to pray for people who are blinded by Satan's lies.
