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 mindseta 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 realityis the truth of the Bible turned upside down.
Oprah told her television audience that Williamsons 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. Oprahs endorsement skyrocketed Williamsons
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 Jesuswho bears no doctrinal resemblance to the Bibles Jesus Christbegan delivering channeled teachings in 1965 to a Columbia University Professor of Medical Psychology,
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:
7 There is no sin. . . "
7 A slain Christ has no meaning.
7 The journey to the cross should
be the last useless journey.
7 Do not make the pathetic error of clinging to the
old rugged cross.
7 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.
7 The recognition of
God is the recognition of yourself.
7 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.

Christian author who was saved out of the new age movement says media icon Oprah Winfrey has become a false prophet
for a false Jesus.
Oprah Winfrey identifies herself as a Christian. But she says that, when she was a
young woman, she was disturbed by a pastor's declaration that the God of the Bible is a jealous God. "And something
about that didn't feel right in my spirit because I believe that God is love and that God is in all things," she
told her television audience. "And, so, that's when the, the, the search for something more than doctrine started
to stir within me."
Warren Smith, author of Reinventing Jesus Christ: The New Gospel, is a Christian who was saved from the new age movement. He says Oprah's search led her to Marianne Williamson and the
new age teachings of A Course in Miracles.
"Marianne Williamson was on Oprah back in 1992 with her book
about the Course in Miracles," Smith recalled, "and back then, Oprah said, 'I believe that the principles of
A Course in Miracles can change the world' -- and she's saying the same thing today."
is now promoting A Course in Miracles through daily classes on Oprah's XM satellite radio channel. "I will be on
Oprah & Friends every single day talking about the ideas in A Course in Miracles," Williamson said during a promotional
announcement for the program. "We can have miracles. We can have greater inner peace. We can shift from an experience
of fear to an experience of greater love."
Oprah told her audience that she has no problem reconciling
the differences between the new age religion she is now promoting and the Christian faith she claims. "I reconciled it
because I was able to open my mind about the, um, the absolute, indescribable hugeness of that which we call 'God,'"
Oprah said. "I took God out of the box."
But Smith, appearing on the March 11 edition of the AFA Report, said the false teachings of A Course in Miracles should be obvious to any Christian. "Here are some of the lessons:
Lesson 29, 'God is in everything I see.' Lesson 186, 'The salvation of the world depends on me.' 253, 'My
self is the ruler of the universe.' 337, 'My sinless-ness protects me from all harm,'" Smith said,
quoting from the lessons. "This is the Bible upside-down."
Smith also criticized Oprah for the
selection of Eckhart Tolle's new age book A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose as her book of the month.
"It reminds me of Jeremiah 5 where he says, 'A wonderful and horrible thing is committed in the land,
the prophets prophesy falsely and my people love to have it so,'" Smith explained. "What is more wonderful these
days than Oprah? A wonderful and horrible thing is happening in the land, the prophets prophesy falsely. Oprah -- by now teaching
this class with Eckhart Tolle -- is no longer a pointer to deception. She is a false prophet and part of it herself."
Christians have an obligation, Smith concluded, to point out the error of Oprah's new age "christianity,"
even if doing so means risking public ridicule.
"Unfortunately, Oprah does so many things that are really
good [that] people make the mistake of thinking that she's on to something with this whole spiritual deal," Smith
argued. "What she's doing is, she's creating a new worldview. They're calling it a 'shift' that will
prepare people for when the next shoe drops.
"And the only people who are going to hinder that are the people who are saying,
'No, we're not God. Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior.'
Internet evangelist Bill Keller, appearing
on Fox News Channel's Cavuto Report, echoed Smith's warnings, calling Oprah the queen of the new age gurus. "These
new age teachings are really sucking in millions of people to these false philosophies, these false theologies, and they're
literally leading people to Hell," Keller said. "Oprah, whether she knows it or not, is really being a conduit to
lead people to Hell."
