"Oprah is leading the mass awakening"

Somehow this does not feel right to me.
I have no proof or nothing.
But my gut tells me there is a catch.

I guess i keep following this topic for a wile and see if any one comes up with something interesting.

As for Oprah being a narcissist or egotisical, she certainly does seem to have an above average amount of self confidence, ego, and belief that she can make a difference and is worth listening to.


Narcissists are NOT people with self confidence and a belief that they can make a difference.

Narcissists are in love with themselves to an overwhelming degree.

THAT is what a narcissist is. THAT is what Oprah is.

St. John of the Cross and St. Teresa were not narcissists.

Narcissists are spiritually bankrupt. There is no room for God.
Oprah spews anti-God and hugs the false self-god.

Everyone from the Dali lama to the Pope to the shaman to the simple minister living in the mountains will tell you that the key to true spirituallity and closeness with God is HUMILITY and DENIALl of self. Oprah definately doesn't DENY SELF. She calls herself God and she says no one needs 'the cross', etc etc.

She's leading the masses alright. Right off a cliff.

I don't think that this is entirely true and it is based up on the assumption that these people possess some special or hidden knowledge. The Dali Lama was born into his role and the Pope elected to his. The assumption is that to acheive these roles they must be spiritually elightened but what proof do we have of that and what does closeness to 'god' necessarily have to do with spiritual enlightenment any way? Just because one may believe in an omniscient being does not make their path to enlightenment any more realisable than the person who believes in multiple gods or no god at all.

You may also find it helpful to read up on the stories of Narcissus, there are a few, but for me the premise is not so much Narcissus' perception of self but the effect of the perception of others on Narcissus. Narcissus was 'desired' that does not necessarily mean he sought to be an object of desire. People wish to follow Oprah, does that automatically mean that she wishes to lead?

You need to back that up. Did you think that you could just slip that one thru FF?

"antichrist"? 'calls her self god"?
where are you people getting this stuff? and i thought my post was out there. The other poster was right. You attack based on opinions and not facts. She is doing something good, and your accusing her of being the antichrist? Attacking and automatically rebuking an idea of a mass spiritual awakening because of the person who brought it up, and cared enough to share.

I swear some people on ats are extreme negative nancy's and tear apart any thread that goes even a degree against their closed minded beliefs. Ignorance at its best, what happened to "deny ignorance"? Not embody it.

that is your opinion not mine and the fact is ...she is misleading people away from Jesus. that is wrong imo and what she is doing is what the antichrist would want someone to do.

i swear some people on ATS post something very controversial and then when everyone doesnt play along or help promote their personal agenda .....they start crying....boo hooo ......everyone is so negative and closed minded......

seems there are many Christians shocked by what she is doing and i am one of the shocked.

it is clear as day that she is leading people away from Jesus.

Oprah may not be the Antichrist but imho... she is definitely leading some people astray.





However, Keller, and a number of other Christian pastors have begun to actively warn Christians that Oprah and Eckhart's teachings are by no means compatible with Christianity. "Oprah is now trying to be the spiritual guru to this nation," said Keller in an appearance on Fox. "Sadly, she is being used as a tool of Satan to lead millions of souls to hell with her false teachings."

Then it would seem we were making two entirely different points on the same issue.

Twud' explain why there seems to be such a large misconception of one another's ideals in this thread.

Still, if it doesn't really mean anything at all in the first place - that character assessment should not be based purely on Ego, then what was the point of bringing that up in the first place?

"Oprah's sucess in this venture should tell a few things about our culture or status of present day America."
-The masses are seeking enlightenment, enlightenment has always been there but its associated with discipline to read and study.
-The people involved in her movement typlify the mainstream adittude of I want it now,, I want it easy and I want it free. Oprah has just taken advandage of this "market", which is in accordance with our concepts of free enterprise.
Her "New Philosphy" is not "new" nor are the activites associated with it,, the Asian and Hindu cultures have practiced this concepts for thousands of years.

And to make a point of my earlier sarcastic post, bringing to mind the diasterous results of so many fringe,, "New Age" organizations.....
if we adopt the personal and social adittude now being pandered as Oprah;s New age... the world would be a better place and we would not have to Ascend to anywhere,,,,,

Admittly the Slim Whitman comment was just meant to be scarcastic wit for anyone following the theme ..
But the rest where actually activties of cults just prior to their,,,,achem Ascension,,, activities

Noticing how popular New Age philosophy ala Oprah is....

Doesn't this say something about main stream religion?
Why aren't the mainstream denominations attracting those that are attracted to Oprah style religion. Is it because they are critical, strident,
arrogant and exclusive with a "we, them" attitude?

Perhaps if the mainstream denominations would truly embody the spirit of Jesus they would be more attractive to the masses that are searching for answers.

One of the things that turns me off to my local churches is the "country club" atmosphere that pervaded the places. There are some Christian outreach programs that I participate in to help streetpeople and junkies, that for me seem more intune with scriptural teaching. I'm basically an agnostic but I can see the value in community service and helping those less fortunate than myself. I expect no reward other than helping an orginization that at one time I might have needed.

Yes, and thats a beautiful thing. Leading astray from centuries of oppression, bigotry and war into the luciferian new age of freedom, respect and empowerment.

One thing I can say that has gained my respect about Oprah is that she is a self made woman.

She has actualized the American Dream. She had a vision which has evolved over time as we have watched her do.

I am not looking for someone else's spiritual experience to guide me so I am not watching the video or reading all about it, but I would like to weigh in as someone who believes she has earned the following she has by "Walking her Talk"

that's exactly what i dont understand about people that worship the devil...if you believe in satan/lucifer than you must believe there is God also.......and to choose to burn in hell for all eternity is a choice that i can not rationalize. but to each his own.

nice to know that ATS has mods that are devil worshipers and that makes this place a beautiful family oriented web site........

Skyfolating, I am at a complete loss for words here...Can you please expand on, "into the luciferian new age..."

Are you saying you embrace lucifer and movements associated with the satan?

If so, I am not trying to put you down for your beliefs, and as I said before, I am not here to debate religious beliefs as I am secure with mine. I am a Christian and will always be but I am interested in what you actually mean by this.
