The Top of the Dunghill: The Spirituality of Oprah Winfrey

Most Bible-believing Christians may be quick to just dismiss the things that come from Oprah's mouth as silly. However, I think that this is one of the times that we must, as it says in the scriptures, to answer a fool according to their folly. While it may be apparent to some, you can't just make the leap and assume that it is apparent for all. Regardless of how ridiculous it may be, we have to take into account that Oprah has one of the largest (if not the largest) fan bases in the world. Knowing that we must entertain the things that she says and take them seriously as to be able to enlighten people to the truth when the opportunity presents itself. There are after all many earnest Christian folks who also at times have been led astray by some of the things that Oprah has said. It is the job of those who are more mature in the faith and who have grown into a fuller knowledge of the truth to edify and teach our spiritually younger brethren.

Listen to the "doctrine" that Oprah presents and then hear the objections of Pastors Mark Driscoll and R.C. Sproul as they lay out a clear and concise apology to Ms. Winfrey's postmodern, quasi-theological rant - specifically pertaining to the person and work of Jesus Christ. All roads may very well lead to Rome, but there is only one way to God...
