Woman on a Mission ~ Part III

Be patient with me a bit longer, please

I am not sure why this has struck such a cord with me, other than the deep sadness I feel at all the individuals who are being lead astray by Oprah and her friends. I must confess to a good deal of anger as well, it just send me over the edge to think that Oprah is doing this and very little is being said about it, that I can find. I spent several hours yesterday and the day before searching on the Internet to try and find some credible opposition to this latest endeavor that she is perusing. Regretfully I found very little. I found lots of articles speaking out against her, but most if not all of them were written my lay people such as myself. If anyone has found any mains stream religious leader who has taken a public stand against what she and her friends are doing I would very much like to know. I did however spend a few moments yesterday writing several letters to some of the religious leaders that I am familiar with. I have written letter voicing my concern over this situation and have encouraged them to do the research or themselves and to publicly speak out against this movement. I have listed the organization that I have contacted below and if you feel so lead to give them a shout I think it would be greatly helpful. If you are aware of any other organizations please pass them on to me so that I may send them a letter as well.

God bless you on your mission. I know how you are feeling. I was sent an email with a link to the video posted on Godtube and normally I usually don't give a second thought but more and more I hear about Oprah, the more concern I get given the influence she does have.

You're not alone. There is a great post about Oprah here A Walk Through the Valley and "A Walk...." has another great post about the "Oprah" phenomena, and I talked about it along with a copy of the email I received regarding Oprah here and here.

Scripture tells us we must test the spirits and be very discerning because there are false prophets out there and in a way, that is what she is doing when she is saying Jesus isn't the way and endorses a different belief.

1 John 4:1
Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

2 Corinthians 11:13-15
For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
