Is Oprah A False Teacher?
“But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed.” 2 Peter 2:1-2 (NKJV)
My heart is really burdened and troubled by the false teachers and false doctrine flying around Christians and our churches. Please practice discernment, even when it comes to long standing leaders in the church, for some are preaching false doctrine.
Twenty years ago, few of us would have believed any claim that Oprah Winfrey would one day become a dangerous woman. Instead, we preferred to cheer on her success and watch her rise from the ashes of poverty, racism, and sexual abuse. Nobody can deny her passion for charity and philanthropic work. She is a big advocate of higher education and strongly backs the importance of learning how to reading. However, what is shiny on the outside is not always pretty or safe on the inside.
We are living in dark times http://www.raptureforums.com/BibleProphecy/101lastdays.cfm and the seasons before us are only going to get darker. Christians need to be reading the Word of God, and heeding the prophecies that bear witness to coming signs prior to the tribulation. Whether the upcoming lunar and solar eclipses bring wars, or merely rumors of wars, time will tell. But signs in the heavens are only a part of the birth pains mentions in the Bible. A number of false teachers and prophets will emerge. In fact, there are already here.
As Christians, we are instructed to put on all of our spiritual armor; this includes our shield and the sword. The spiritual shield is our faith but the living Word of God is our sword. This sword is to be used to cut down the lies and deceit of the enemy. Take some time to read the words on the following article. It is alarming but with God on our side, we will always be victorious. http://shatteredparadigm.blogspot.com/
It is my prayer that everyone reading this post will follow the advise given in Matthew 10:16 (NKJV) “Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves.”
“Oprah Winfrey has become such a spiritual icon in America that USAToday has called her “a spiritual leader for the new millennium, a moral voice of authority for the nation.”
“Remember the former things of old, for I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like Me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not yet done, saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure” Isaiah 46:9-10 (NKJV)
