Call Me "Narrow" Minded...Please!

I said therefore to you [the religious leaders of His day], that you shall die in your sins; for unless you believe that I am He, you shall die in your sins. John 8:24



Jesus said to him, "I am THE way, THE truth, and THE life; no one comes to the Father, BUT THROUGH ME. John 14:6 (emphasis mine)



Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide, and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and many are those who enter by it. For the gate is small, and the way is narrow that leads to life, and few are those who find it. Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. Matthew 7:13-15







But the Spirit says explicitly that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons... 1 Timothy 4:1



For the word of the cross is to those who are perishing foolishness, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written, "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and the cleverness of the clever I will set aside." Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?

For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom DID NOT COME TO KNOW GOD, God was well-pleased through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe. For indeed Jews ask for signs, and Greeks search for wisdom; but we preach Christ crucified, to Jews a stumbling block, and to gentiles foolishness, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God.

Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
1 Corinthians 1:18-25 (emphasis mine)



Anyone who goes too far and does not abide in the teaching of Christ DOES NOT HAVE GOD; the one who abides in the teaching, he HAS BOTH THE FATHER AND THE SON. If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house [or onto your tv!]and do not give him a greeting; for the one who gives him a greeting participates in his evil deeds. 2 John 9-11 (emphasis mine)

She sure is taking a lot of people to hell with her. Christians need to wise up and not let false teaching take them away from the one true way--Christ.

I'm so glad to see you also posted this and love the way you used the scriptures that speak truth. I see us, who are posting this, as the ones who give Jesus our 2 loaves and 5 fishes and then HE does His wonders with it.

I respect you and your beliefs and in many ways wish I could have the faith that you do, but as you know I am not a devout Christian and I do come across many people like me who struggle with their faith and find themselves searching for something. Oprah has honed in on that need in society but I feel her conceit is getting out of hand. She is a talk show host, not a prophet. I do disagree with influential people like Oprah making a mockery of beliefs that are so important to so many people. It worries me a lot because at the end of the day, the only God Oprah worships is money and that is a dangerous position for anyone who wields such influence to come from. Thanks for this post, Groovy, it has given me a lot to think about.

Satan is sublte and people fall for it.

Oprah definitely thinks she has the world by the tail. I think her grandma would be very sad to see how far she's veered from how she was raised! Well done, Groovy!

I wish Oprah realized God isn't jealous *of* her, but jealous *for* her because he loves her so much.

So happy to see this here too and the way you used scripture is the best way to refute her. She knows she inluences people. I'm so happy that this info about her pushing the new age movement is flying into my mailbox daily, or I find the You Tube link over and over round about the blog world. We must continue putting this forth, even if it only opens one persons eyes to the truth! I've emailed the link to about 50 people. HOpe they watched it and prayed, prayed, prayed, and continue praying!
The scriptures here were great Groovy!

I've posted about this a couple of times. It breaks my heart. We have all been at one time or another searching. The enemy just wants to lead as many sheep astray as possible--and I do mean his sheep.
