Oprah: New Age Enthusiast

A friend sent me a link to this video. Take a look, understanding that I don't know anything about the book advertised and I am generally quite leery of that sort of fringe-published stuff:

I'd say that just shows to go ya what happens when you take ignorance, and add to it more ignorance. Oprah apparently didn't bother to find out what God being a "jealous God" means... not that he wants something that Oprah has but He wants Oprah. He jealously guards His people. Because she lacked understanding, she decided to try and figure things out another way. Paradoxically, she realized that she couldn't figure out the God that was being preached, so she decided to figure out some other god, and discovered that the other god is not figure-outable either. Apparently that didn't bother her at all. <sigh>

I read some of the YouTube comments too... someone tried to smooth things over by saying that maybe the pastor said God is a "zealous God." Only problem is... the Bible doesn't seem to say that. Although it does say He is a "jealous God" in at least a half-dozen places, including the Ten Freakin' Commandments!

When we reject the real God because there are things about Him that we can't understand, and then we embrace a god that is so nebulous that there is nothing to understand, that's just stupid. "Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things." (Rom. 1:22-23) Oprah doesn't even apparently have the sense to worship a bird... just a beam of light.

Too bad masses of people appear to be doing it right along with her.
