Careful what we watch: Oprah says *we* are God

Oprah Winfrey, the most influential woman of our time, proclaims that "We are the source of all life, we are the Creator, we are God" here, and denies Jesus as the only way here.

A longtime Oprah fan, Carrington Steele started taking notice of some of the views expressed by Ms. Winfrey and her guests, and how these views are in conflict with the Bible. Ms. Steele wrote "Don't Drink the Kool-Aid" and started the "Our Eyes Are Open" Ministries to warn people about the eerily cultic and simply anti-Christ teachings being spread right in our living rooms. (Note: The book title references the 900-member People's Temple cult who committed mass suicide by drinking poisoned Kool-Aid.)

the "Our Eyes Are Open" site for videos, book excerpts, and other resources that explain how Oprah's teachings --- as viewed by millions of homes --- go against the Word of God. More video clips can be found in Isim13's YouTube site.

Indeed, when the most prominent media figure in the world is actively leading people away from Jesus, our eyes must be opened.

Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour. (1 John 2:18)

Who is the liar?
It is the man who denies that Jesus is the Christ.
Such a man is the antichrist — he denies the Father and the Son.

No one who denies the Son has the Father;
whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also.
(1 John 2:22-23)

Many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist. (2 John 1:7)

Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.
(1 John 4:1-3)

POSTSCRIPT Oct1508: Please pray for Oprah, for her guests and the people behind the show, and especially for her audience. Pray that their eyes and ears would be opened, that their minds would understand, that their hearts would turn to God.
