This is a horrible tragedy to hear about Oprah declaring a new age religion. Millions of her fans have followed her into her new church.
The deceiving lies of Satan tells us that there are many ways to Heaven and that Jesus is not the only way to Heaven.
"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. " John 14:6
Not "a" way, but "the" way. No one goes unto the father but by Jesus alone.
If there are other ways to Heaven, then why did Jesus die on the cross? God left Heaven, came to Earth as a man and took our place for the penalty of our sins. He died a horrible death for us. When Jesus was praying in the garden a few hours before the guards came to capture him, he asked if the cup would pass from him. If there was ANY other way that we could go to Heaven then he would have taken it. But there wasn't any other way. Jesus had to die on the cross for us to be saved and that was the ONLY way.
We are NOT god. There is only one God and no other God beside him.
"I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me" Isaiah 45:5
We are not to worship any other Gods or assume we are god.
"Ye shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people which are round about you" Deutronomy 6:14
"Take heed to yourselves, that your heart be not deceived, and ye turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them" Deutronomy 11:16
We are not holy. We are all sinners. It is because of God's love and his gift to us that we are saved, not by what we do to "earn" our way to Heaven.
" For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Not of works, lest any man should boast." Ephesians 2:8-9
The Bible has predicted that there will be a coming of a false religion that decieves the world. Revelations chapter 17 describes a great whore which signifies a "one world" religion mixed with different gods and different ways to heaven. Many countries and tribes will follow this religion and go against Christians.
Be on guard and keep watch for our master is coming!
"Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come." Matthew 24:42
(Matthew chapter 24 describes the end times if you wish to know more)
Thank you to SisterLisa for telling me about Oprah's new false religion. I had NO idea!
