Thank you for forwarding this email to me (see below for article). We are very aware of Oprah’s religion. I even preached on it.
But Christians should know that it is not our job or place “to stop” false doctrine. This is the job of the Inquisition.
The Lord deals with false doctrine by preaching the truth:
1 Cor 11:19
19 For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you.
Christians are called “to choose,” or “recognize” truth. The problem today is that the Church is not prepared to tell the difference between truth and error, or between the Holy Ghost and Christ.
God bless you.
Love, Pastor Vitale

You all probably have heard of this. Brings to mind that where sin abounds grace much more abounds. Some will be drawn into the snare of the enemy but many will begin to seek out the truth and find Jesus to be who He says He is.
This is so very important for the Christians to wake up and be aware of what is going on with Oprah... Please take the time to read this and check out the link provided to more information on this blasphemy that is taking hold with her at the helm.....We can no longer sleep and pretend these things will go away. Look what happened in our schools with our children while we were sleeping Christians. Our voices must be heard and a clear warning sounded across the world against this outrage of this woman that has been created as an antichrist to our nation and the world. We created this monster and satan is using her power and money to destroy the faith of the people in our God, the only God. Wake up and boycott this woman everyway you can, if it is not too late for us to stand and be heard.
Wake up Christians!!!!!!!!
Oprah and Friends to teach course on New Age Christ!
THIS LADY MUST BE STOPPED!
I did some investigating into this, it's not on Snopes, but go to the web place and read for yourself. Why does the most powerful woman in the world think she is so great that she can ursurp the Bible!?! I guess it is too old- fashioned for her. We need to jump onto this right away, and head it off.
Oprah joins false prophets Bible warned about.
"Oprah and Friends" to teach course on New-Age Christ
Jesus Christ being reinvented, redefined, and blasphemed and, this false New-Age Christ teaching is about to make huge inroads into the world, with the help of the "Queen of Television Talk Shows", Oprah Winfrey.
Oprah Winfrey, beginning January 1, 2008, on her daily radio program will offera year-long course on the New Age Christ, in a lesson-a-day and completelycover the 365 lessons from the Course in Miracles "Workbook."
Listeners will be encouraged to buy "A Course in Miracles" for theyear-long course, and an audio version, recited by Richard (John BoyWalton) Thomas will be available on compact disc.
Those who finish the Course will have a wholly redefined spiritual mindset-a New Age worldview that include the beliefs that there is no sin, no evil, no devil. 'A Course in Miracles' teaches its students to rethink everything they believe about God and life, and, bluntly states: "This is a course in mind training" and is dedicated to "thought reversal."
The Course in Miracles, in reality, is the truth of the Bible turned upside down.
Oprah told her television audience that Williamson's book, 'A Course in Miracles' was one of her favorite books, and that she had already bought a thousand copies and would be handing them out to everyone in her studio audience.
Oprah's endorsement skyrocketed Williamson's book to the top of the New York Times bestseller list.
'A Course in Miracles' is allegedly a "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 channeled teachings in 1965 to a Columbia University Professor of Medical Psychology, Helen Schucman.
One day Schucman heard an "inner voice" stating, "This is a course in miracles. Please take notes." For seven years she diligently took spiritual dictation from this voice that described himself as "Jesus."
Here are some quotes from the "Jesus" voice in 'A Course in Miracles':
"There is no sin . . . "
A "slain Christ has no meaning."
"The journey to the cross should be the last 'useless journey."
"Do not make the pathetic error of 'clinging to the old rugged cross.'"
"The Name of Jesus Christ as such is but a symbol... It is a symbol that is safely used as a replacement for the many names of all the gods to which you pray."
"The recognition of God is the recognition of yourself."
"The Atonement is the final lesson he [man] need learn, for it teaches him that, never having sinned, he has no need of salvation."
Popular author Wayne Dyer told his PBS television audience that the "brilliant writing" of 'A Course in Miracles' would produce more peace in the world.
The Course in Miracles-based book, Forgiveness, continues to be sold in Robert Schuller's Crystal Cathedral bookstore as Schuller prepares to host a January 17-19, 2008, "Rethink Conference" at his Crystal Cathedral.
2 Timothy 3 (King James Version)
King James Version (KJV)
2 Timothy 3
1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
It's not surprising at all that Oprah Winfrey is supporting Barak Obama!!!
If you have received this before you will know about this, but if you haven't it is something we should all be aware of.....
And PLEASE pass this one on.....if you never forward anything else!
