I think it’s important to know what people are talking about, particularly when the conversation crosses over into the religious realm. In recent weeks, Oprah has come under fire for the religious beliefs she has expressed.
A video on YouTube, which criticizes Oprah for pushing “New Age” beliefs, has been viewed more than 6 million times. This video where Oprah denies Christ is the only way to salvation has been viewed more than 1 million times.
Frankly, the first video contains some political overtones that each person can make decisions on. But Scripture is clear that there is one way to salvation — Jesus Christ.
I don’t want to bag on Oprah. I don’t watch Oprah enough to know what she stands for. I know she does a lot of nice things for people. And has a show I find really boring.
I do think people are talking about this issue as Oprah is one of the most influential people in this country. It’s important that people within the church know people are talking about this so they can respond appropriately.
It’s not often I pull something from my church, but my pastor preached on this last Sunday. And he did a great job. To check out the sermon, click here and check out the “It’s All Good” sermon.
