As a former New Age follower and devoted student of A Course in Miracles, I eventually discovered that the Course in Miracles was—in reality—the truth of the Bible turned upside down.
Not having a true understanding of the Bible at the time of my involvement, I was led to believe that A Course in Miracles was “a gift from God” to help everyone understand the “real” meaning of the Bible and to help bring peace to the world. Little did I know that the New Age “Christ” and the New Age teachings of A Course in Miracles were everything the real Jesus Christ warned us to watch out for. In Matthew 24 Jesus warned about false teachers, false teachings and the false “Christs” who would pretend to be He.
Quotes from this website which tells of and repudiates a new program on Oprah Winfrey's XM Satelite Radio Program this coming year.
I am not sure I get it - what seems to be the problem with Oprah helping people again?ReplyDelete
I actually just watched her new reality show 'the big give' - which is likely linked to this idea these quotes are about - and I have to tell you - the same thing she is doing I can easily see churches doing as witnesses of the goodness of God (and should do if you ask me).
So I am not sure I get the real problem with a teaching that leads people to committ good behaviors for the sake of helping another? Isn't that the teachings of Jesus in a nutshell - or at the least - the law and the prophets in summation?
The link given gave the following as daily lessons in the Oprah course: “My salvation comes from me.” and “I am the light of the world.”
Do you not see a problem with that kind of false teaching?

I will check into it - I know very little about Oprah's faith whatsoever - so I will look into it.

I'd be interested in your answer to the question.
Does sin exist? Is salvation found in Christ alone? Can one merit God's requirement of righteousness on their own, or must they look outside themselves to the righteousness that comes from God for approval and acceptance?
