If you are an Oprah fan you should watch this video. She is lost and leading many astray. She has fallen into a New Age religion. We need to pray for her and for those she is leading astray.
Times are getting darker and trials lie ahead. Don’t put your faith in a person, not even your Pastor. Put your faith in God alone! There are good leaders in the church, but we all need to DISCERN and test Christian leaders with scripture, like the Bereans of old.
Just because somebody you respect believes or teaches something does not mean what they teach is right. Like sheep, we can be led astray by wolves in sheep’s clothing. This is why every believer needs to be in the Word of God on a daily basis. Don’t totally rely on others to feed you, feed yourself!!

“If anyone teaches otherwise and does not agree to the sound instruction of our Lord Jesus Christ and to godly teaching, they are conceited and understand nothing. They have an unhealthy interest in controversies and quarrels about words that result in envy, strife, malicious talk, evil suspicions and constant friction between people of corrupt mind, who have been robbed of the truth and who think that godliness is a means to financial gain.” 1 Timothy 6:3-6 (NIV)
“Then the brethren immediately sent Paul and Silas away by night to Berea. When they arrived, They went into the synagogue of the Jews. These were more fair-minded than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so. ” Acts 17:10-11 (NKJV)
