The Queen of Spiritual Crack is Going on Tour
(Deuteronomy 13:5; Isaiah 9:15)
***ASK BILL: My question is will God answer prayers for the salvation of another person by opening their minds or influencing their hearts even thought they have free will?
ANSWER: That needs to be our exact prayer for someone we know who is not saved. In the end, it still depends on each person making the decision for themselves, seeking forgiveness, repenting, turning from their sins, and accepting Jesus by faith. However, we need to pray that God will bring the right person across their path who can speak the words that they will at least hear and digest and open their heart to the love of Christ.
The Queen of "spiritual crack" is going on tour! That is right, Oprah, who has made tens of millions over the years selling New Age lies from hell like "everyone will get to heaven" is going on a national stadium tour. But wait, it gets better. It won't just be Queen Oprah, but she will be joined by heretic pastor Rob Bell who also preaches the New Age lie that everyone will get to heaven, New Age author of "Eat, Pray, Love" Elizabeth Gilbert, and one of satan's chief agents, New Age guru Deepak Chopra! Talk about a satanic group that will be helping to lead souls to hell with satan's lies under the guise of "spirituality!"
After finding great success pushing the New Age agenda over the years on her TV program, New Age witch Oprah Winfrey is now clearly committing her vast resources to lead millions of unsuspecting souls to hell selling them the "spiritual crack" of the day, New Age teachings! Just like crack, these false teachings make people feel good for a moment but lead them on a path of destruction.
Over the years, Oprah has taught a year-long course on her XM Satellite radio channel, "A Course in Miracles." A Course in Miracles is allegedly "new revelation" from "Jesus" to help humanity work through these troubled times. This "Jesus"-who bears no doctrinal resemblance to the Bible's Jesus Christ-began delivering his channeled teachings in 1965 to a Columbia University Professor of Medical Psychology by the name of Helen Schucman.
Here is an email from a poor gullible soul buying into these lies as tens of millions worldwide have: "Dear Mr. Keller, I am responding to your recent comments on the Fox News Network regarding your opinion that Oprah is the "most dangerous woman in the world." I am a "Course in Miracles" student for some time now, a student of the "We are All One" philosophy. I was born and raised a Christian, but have in the past several years found much strength and faith in the belief that we are all from the same God. I am puzzled regarding your comments, since I am of the belief that one need not be a Christian to get to heaven. It appears that your strong public opinions create more divisiveness on this troubled planet at a time when we need to become more united...that is all humanity, everywhere, united in LOVE with the same God. I have found in my exploration of spirituality that I have gained much more peace than I ever found in my Christian based religion."
Oprah's largest venture in New Age teachings was a 10 week seminar over the Internet when Oprah and best selling New Age author Eckhart Tolle taught from his new book, "A New Earth, Awakening Your Life's Purpose." Over 1 million people signed up for this 10 week web cast that led them away from Biblical Truth and faith in Jesus Christ through Tolle's perverted spiritual teachings. I have told you for years this is the most dangerous woman on earth, and she is clearly now being used as a tool of satan to lead millions of souls to hell with these false teachings she is promoting, while making millions of dollars doing it!
For the 15 years Liveprayer has been around, I have continually exposed this New Age false-hope merchant and warned people of how dangerous she is. If Oprah Winfrey was simply another Hollywood entertainer I could care less about her. What makes her so dangerous is that while her program normally deals with the same subject matter the raunchy talk shows of the day do, Oprah also deals with the very real day-to-day issues of life and uses her cable network to tell people how to live. The authority she speaks from? Herself, OPRAH WINFREY! The lack of ratings of her OWN Network over the last few years has taken Oprah off the main stage, but the programming daily is heavily laden with...NEW AGE TEACHINGS!!!
We are living in a time where the better percentage of two full generations don't go to church. People still hit those difficult places in life and at those moments they are looking for help and for hope. Sadly, the Christian leaders of our day have abandoned the marketplace and secular television for the safety and prosperity of the "Christian trough." In so doing, they have left the lost and hurting masses looking for a savior, someone to come along and help them through the difficult moments of life, tell them how to live, and give them hope. To fill this void in people's spiritual lives, along comes Oprah, Chopra and their ilk!
People defend her by saying she is not a theologian or a preacher, she is a talk-show host and entertainer. I agree. However, that is not how she portrays herself or positions herself. She has eagerly cashed in to the tune of over $1 BILLION DOLLARS on being the spiritual guru to millions, mostly women. The authority she speaks from is what she has determined truth to be, her views on right and wrong, her values and morals, as opposed to the only Truth and authority there is...God's Word!
It is clearly established that over the recent decade, Oprah Winfrey views herself as some sort of spiritual leader. You can laugh at that notion but can't ignore the fact she has an incredible amount of influence over tens of millions of lives. Let me be clear. The danger of Oprah Winfrey is that like any cult leader, her version of the truth and her final authority are not from God but from herself!
It has been clearly documented from transcripts that Oprah Winfrey may use the name of "God," and very rarely "Jesus," and use many "Christian" expressions, but so does the Mormon cult! While she was raised in the Baptist church, she has been a long-time member (though rarely attends) of a very liberal church in Chicago that mixes Christian faith with Black Liberation Theology. That is right, the 20 year home church of President Obama pastored by Dr. Jeremiah Wright!!!
Because she has never been married, choosing instead of live for decades outside the bonds of God's Holy Institution with a man who is not her husband, Oprah has a jaundiced view on this most sacred bond between a man and woman. Oprah embraces the New Age philosophy that there are "many roads that lead to God," a lie from the pits of hell itself. On her programs she promotes and endorses cults like Scientology, Kaballah, those who speak to the dead, psychics, and people of ANY "spirituality." There is only ONE GOD, the God of the Bible, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and to promote the false gods of this world makes Oprah an enemy of God!
As for the social issues, Oprah condones and supports those who choose to engage in the sin of homosexuality. Oprah is on the record supporting a "woman's right to choose," code for slaughtering innocent babies. While she gives lip service to being pro-family, Oprah's definition of the family is whatever men want it to be, not what God says it is! Again, the truth Oprah espouses comes from her own imagination, not from the only authority and source of Truth there is, the Bible. By going against God's Word on the key social issues of our day makes Oprah an enemy of God.
I could go on, but there is no reason to. Simply denying the Bible as the only Truth there is, God as the one and only God there is, and faith in Jesus Chris as the one and ONLY WAY to be saved, makes this woman dangerous and a false prophet in every sense of the word. What makes a person a false prophet is that they lead you AWAY from God, Biblical Truth and Jesus Christ. Sadly, those who follow this false prophet, this merchant of false hope, put their eternal souls in peril. That is why I have warned people for years about her and will continue to.
I love you and care about you so much. I know all the Oprah disciples who spend hundreds of dollars to go hear her preach the "gospel of Oprah" at her seminars, buy her books and magazine, watch her faithfully every day, hang on her every word, will run to her defense by pointing out all the good she does. I don't doubt for a second that Oprah uses some of her billions to help others. That is not the issue. The Mormon cult feeds the hungry, clothes the naked, and visits the prisoners, yet they are still lost and going to hell for rejecting Jesus Christ. The Mafia gives millions to worthwhile causes that help those in need, but that doesn't make them good people. God's Word teaches you can't buy your way into heaven!
I have no doubt with the spiritual decay in the nation, Oprah and her gang of satan's minions will pack them in. As one of the most powerful women in the entertainment business, she is not going away. The answer is to take on Oprah just like Elijah took on the prophets of Baal, head-on! In the end, the TRUTH will always win out over the lie. False hope will always give way to true hope. The false prophet will always be exposed when confronted by a true prophet of God.
*Since Oprah refuses to be confronted with her spiritual lies, years ago I took an interview she did IN FULL CONTEXT, put it in a debate format to help people understand her false theology. You can watch that video at: http://www.liveprayer.com/oprah.cfm
I have told you many times that what we are dealing with is a battle for the souls of men. This is why I am so passionate about the Liveprayer television program being on nationwide. It will be a beacon of light in the darkness of this world for Biblical Truth and lead people to the only answer there is..Jesus Christ!
(Sadly, many high profile Christians will go on Oprah's programs and rather than confront her and challenge the false theology she espouses, say nothing so they can sell whatever book they are pushing. David had no fear in taking on Goliath on his own turf. David was a shepherd, not a great man of war like Goliath. I have no fear in taking on Oprah on her own turf. I am an evangelist, not a great television and entertainment celebrity like Oprah. David didn't need the fancy armor of Saul, only a few pebbles. I don't need fancy buildings and studios, only a few pebbles and that is why I ask you at this time to help me bring the REAL Truth of the Bible and Gospel of Jesus Christ to the lost and hurting!. Supply me with the pebbles I need and our God will do the rest!)
The world has always had false prophets, merchants of false hope like Oprah. I expose them for who they are, talk about them, because they are leading people AWAY from the only Truth there is and AWAY from the only hope there is. Pray for Oprah today. The fact is, Oprah could become a powerful woman of God if she would humble herself before the Almighty, get on her knees and confess Jesus Christ as Lord, and stop preaching the gospel of Oprah but the Gospel of Jesus Christ, stop selling people "spiritual crack," but give them the Truth of God's Word!!!
In His love and service, Your friend and brother in Christ,
