she sure does know how to give good christmas gifts, tell us what pair of jeans will make our rears look best, give us some really practical health tips, share stories that make us cry, and has a heck of a lotta cool friends.
there is a lot of controversy going on right now about oprah and her "New World" religion, as well there should be. it's dangerous.
a blog friend (who has amazing things to say- you should read her whole blog) is doing a week long "study" of oprah and her messages to millions of american women. it is important to pay attention to what oprah is doing right now by putting herself in a position as a spiritual advisor/ authority, whether you are a follower of Christ or not.
my intent is not to bash Oprah. she's created in God's image, just like me, and just like you.
i am commanded to love her.
but, i am committed to Truth and I am committed to praying against things in our society and culture that are damaging to the name of the Savior who loves me unconditionally and who has paid the price of death for my sins.
i encourage you to take a few minutes to read Heather's Blog for some really good insight.
and let me know if you have any oprah thoughts to add, or different perspectives!
