We who preach the gospel must not think of ourselves as public relations agents sent to establish good will between Christ and the world. We must not imagine ourselves commissioned to make Christ acceptable to big business, the press, the world of sports or modern education. We are not diplomats but prophets, and our message is not a compromise but an ultimatum. A.W. Tozer
Therefore let God-inspired Scripture decide between us; and on whichever side be found doctrines in harmony with the word of God, in favor of that side will be cast the vote of truth. --Basil of Caesarea
Once you learn to discern, there's no going back. You will begin to spot the lie everywhere it appears.

I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, because He considered me faithful, putting me into service. 1 Timothy 1:12

Did They Really Say That?!?

“One of the biggest mistakes humans make is to believe there is only one way.  There are many diverse paths leading to what you call God.”
Oprah Winfrey, cited in the story, “The Church Of O,” by LaTonya Taylor in Christianity Today, 4/1/02, p.38.  Reported in Brian Flynn’s book, Running Against the Wind, p.119

If this is true, then can Oprah explain all the passages in the Bible which say Christ is the only way to God?  (John 3:18, 36; John 14:6; Acts 4:12; 1 Tim 2:5-6; 1 John 2:23; 1 John 5:11-12)

Oprah Winfrey is one of the most dangerous women in the world, because she leads countless people away from God.  When it comes to talking about God, Jesus, the Bible, and the Christian faith, she is a rank false teacher.

Yep, the Bible "only" has 100+ teachings on how Jesus is the only way to salvation. And Oprah conveniently forgets to back up her opinion with facts.

Louise said...

She is dangerous! And so are so many of the other word/faith teachers.

Doug Evans said...

In a weird way Oprah is right. We are all going to stand in front of God to be judged, and we will stand before the great white throne regardless of our religion.

Joe said...

Oprah Winfrey is a pagan on her very best day.

Yes, just because a person is nice, does nice things and seems compelling does not mean they know the truth of Jesus and His word. That is a BIG lesson I have learned. Thank God for discernment ministries to help us to learn and stay on the narrow path. Thank you Glenn for loving us enough to stand against false teaching and pointing us to Jesus and His absolute truth!
