Marianne Williamson: A Course in Miracles, Lesson 63
Fortunately there is a little button on TVs called the on/off switch. If that doesn't work, try unplugging the power cord. If there is still a problem with watching secular programming, check with your local garbage dump or garbage pick-up service. They usually allow the proper disposal of TVs.

Amen....
Just think this woman needs salvation, and pray for Oprah too, that she will not embrace every whim that comes her way for T.V. ratings?? I don't know, I don't watch it. This is garbage, trash that shouldn't be recycled
Just my .02 pennies..

This is an e-mail that I received from my brother..... this is the reason we all need to take heed regarding what we allow into our homes and minds!!



Oprah & Friends Radio: Marianne Williamson on A Course in Miracles

You can listen to old taped radio shows for yourself. It seems to be true. I stopped watching Oprah when she raved about the book The Secret. She seems to be heading down a dangerous path but because she is so successful at everything, people will follow blindly anything she says. Dangerous stuff.

This is shocking! The real Oprah is revealed here. Check out the references. Don't believe me. I think Star Jone's statement that "We are in the last few pages of Revelation" are more true than we think.

For in Him we live, and move, and have our being.
Acts 17:28

Folks,
I looked on Oprah's web-site and with a little searching, I did indeed
find all that is said below to be true. This is one of the most dangerous
things for our country and even the world because of her vast following
and influence. If you are a believer of the God of the Bible, you really
need to read the following.
- Roger D. Rhodes
You really need to read this: "Oprah and Friends" to teach course on New Age Christ
Many of you, like me, have probably been Oprah fans for a long time. This is very discouraging news to hear about one who has such tremendous influence on the general public. Please ask God to show Oprah the real Jesus Christ.

Just to make sure this was true, I went on Oprah's website and there it
is. The below article is very interesting, so I thought I would share.

Subject: Oprah joins false prophets Bible warned about "Oprah and Friends" to teach course on New Age Christ or "Oprah and Friends" to teach course on New Age Christ

Jesus Christ being reinvented, redefined, and blasphemed and, this false
New- Age Christ teaching is about to make huge inroads into the world,
with the help of the queen of television talk shows, Oprah Winfrey.

Oprah Winfrey, beginning January 1, 2008, on her daily radio program will
offer a year-long course on the New Age Christ , in a lesson a day and
completely cover the 365 lessons from the Course in Miracles "Workbook."

Listeners will be encouraged to buy A Course in Miracles for the year-long
course, and an audio version, recited by Richard (John Boy
Walton) Thomas will be available on compact disc.

Those who finish the Course will have a wholly redefined spiritual
mindset-a New Age worldview that include the beliefs that there is no sin,
no evil, no devil. A Course in Miracles teaches its students to rethink
everything they believe about God and life, and, bluntly
states: "This is a course in mind training" and is dedicated to "thought
reversal."

The Course in Miracles -in reality-is the truth of the Bible turned upside
down.

Oprah told her television audience that Williamson's book, A Course in
Miracles was one of her favorite books, and that she had already bought a
thousand copies and would be handing them out to everyone in her studio
audience. Oprah's endorsement skyrocketed Williamson's book to the top of
the New York Times bestseller list .

A Course in Miracles is allegedly a "new revelation" from "Jesus" to help
humanity work through these troubled times. This "Jesus"-who bears no
doctrinal resemblance to the Bible's Jesus Christ-began delivering
channeled teachings in 1965 to a Columbia University Professor of Medical
Psychology, Helen Schucman.

One day Schucman heard an "inner voice" stating, "This is a course in
miracles. Please take notes." For seven years she diligently took
spiritual dictation from this voice that described himself as "Jesus."

Here are some quotes from the "Jesus" voice of A Course in Miracles :

"There is no sin . . . "
A "slain Christ has no meaning."
"The journey to the cross should be the last ' useless journey."
"Do not make the pathetic error of 'clinging to the old rugged cross.'"
"The Name of Jesus Christ as such is but a symbol... It is a symbol that is safely used as a replacement for the many names of all the gods to which you pray."
"The recognition of God is the recognition of yourself."
"The Atonement is the final lesson he [man] need learn, for it teaches him that, never having sinned, he has no need of salvation."

Popular author Wayne Dyer told his PBS television audience that the "brilliant writing" of A Course in Miracles would produce more peace in the world.

The Course in Miracles-based book, Forgiveness, continues to be sold in
Robert Schuller's Crystal Cathedral bookstore as Schuller prepares to host
a January 17-19, 2008, "Rethink Conference" at his Crystal Cathedral.
2 Timothy 3 (King James Version)
2 Timothy 3(KJV)
1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud,
blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent,
fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of
God;
5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such
turn away.

It's not surprising at all that Oprah Winfrey is supporting Barak Obama!!!
Christians.....Take heed!!

And PLEASE pass this one on.....if you never forward anything else!

Very dangerous territory that Oprah is treading upon. It is indeed a "falling away" that is stated in the New Testament. I guarantee you that someone like John MacArthur wouldn't be allowed on her program because the pure teaching of the Word of God is explained.

We must repent for the kingdom of God is at hand.

I don't know of many other respected public figures who can get a message like that across.
It's no problem getting a spiritual message on mainstream TV. An overtly Christian message is another story. Read about the author of this dribble and she will tell you that while she uses Christian terms it is not a religious message. Charmed had no trouble finding its way onto prime time TV.
