Oprah Winfrey has become more influential than most of America’s pastors and religious leaders. Too many people today follow pop-culture icons and celebrities and even many Christians end up believing their teachings. Oprah has launched book sales and resuscitated careers for many authors and spiritual gurus while giving proponents of higher spirituality a platform, particularly those who promote a New Age philosophy.
In one interview on her network, OWN, she asked Deepak Chopra and other leading spiritual thinkers about God; remember, she promotes these folks and their teachings as truth. It went like this:
Oprah: What is your definition of God?
Deepak Chopra: God is the evolutionary impulse of the universe…
Debbie Ford: A spiritual energy. It has no denomination, it has no judgment…
Wayne Dyer: God is the highest place within each and every one of us. It’s our divine self.
Gary Zukav: I don’t have a definition of God, because I’ve never really understood that word…
Marianne Williamson: An all-encompassing love that is the source of all, the reality of all, and the being through which I am.
Eckhart Tolle: God is beyond all the forms of life, but also indwells every form of life as their essence. God is both beyond and within.
Remember this: Satan disguises himself as an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:13-15), and in these last days, false prophets and teachers will deceive many professing Christians. Jesus warned true believers many times to be watchful and to “be not deceived.”
