WND wrote about a book “‘O’ God: A Dialogue on Truth and Oprah’s Spirituality” by Josh McDowell and Dave Strerett which examines the spiritual beliefs and influence of Oprah Winfrey.
“The person with the greatest influence on American spirituality isn’t Billy Graham. Nor is it James Dobson. Nor any other pastor or priest,” WND said on Saturday. “By almost any standard, it’s Oprah Winfrey. And that’s bad news for serious American Christians.”
Oprah lectures at universities, hosts miniseries about spirituality, and through all of it denies that faith in Jesus is the only way to eternal life, the core belief for Christians.
“One of the mistakes that human beings make is by believing that there is only one way to live, and we don’t accept that there are diverse ways to being in the world,” Winfrey said. “There are many paths to what you call God.”
When an audience member said faith in Jesus Christ was the only way to heaven, Oprah responded: “There can’t possibly be one way. I can’t get into a religious argument with you right now.”
Many in the media and democratic party would like to see Winfrey become the next president. She promotes the idea of “a god without labels” in which “self-disclosure and personal testimony, combined with vague New Age thinking, substitute for authentic Christianity,” WND said. “Her own career is testament to the popularity of this message. And with mainstream media backing, Oprah Winfrey could turn this spiritual influence into political power.”
