The Oprah Church

I received an e-mail pointing me to click on a YouTube link. The video has something to do with the Oprah Church. I have no inkling of what this is all about so I clicked on the link and watched the video.

I was quite surprised with Oprah's belief. She said that there are millions of ways or roads to get to God. She sounded like a major proponent of New Age beliefs. I cannot believe it. I thought Oprah was a God-fearing Christian.

Here are some of the teachings being propelled by Oprah.

1. My mind is part of God's. I am very holy.
2. My holiness is my salvation.
3. My salvation comes from me.
4. Let me remember that there is no sin.
5. Do not make the pathetic error of clinging to the "old rugged cross".
6. The only message of the crucifixion is that you can overcome the cross.

Watch the video HERE.

Oprah's 4 interviews with Jill Bolte Taylor were the first that Oprah did after Eckhart Tolle and they take everything Tolle talks about to another level. Oprah's copy of Jill's book, MY STROKE OF INSIGHT, was dog-eared and all marked up and kept reading from it the way she read from A New Earth and recommended it highly.

Oprah's recommendation was enough for me. I read My Stroke of Insight and I loved it too. This story is as inspiring as The Last Lecture or Tuesdays with Morrie - and even better, it has a Happy Ending!

I bought the book on Amazon because they have it for 40% off retail and they also had an amazing interview with Dr Taylor that I haven't seen anywhere else - Here is the Amazon link:
