****They were eye-witnesses to the actual events. The Bible was not edited, only translated word for word. There is no way it was edited and still the best seller since it was published. If they decided to edit it and include this or that, then why attack it and try to change it? it is the true word of God. It gives man a look into the supernatural world of God. The events happened in the way it was described as Gods power was manifested in those times.

22But I tell you that anyone who is angry with his brother

"That your thoughts create your reality"
No offense sir, but that is the biggest bunch of NEW AGE garbage as I've ever heard!
My thoughts like insecurities or lacking an understanding or poor self awareness may contribute to some confusion, perhaps self loathing, but I assure you, my thoughts did not create this keyboard nor the computer I'm using.
This talk that I hear like, " you have your truth I have mine " and "don't judge" and all that other NEW AGE garbage, sounds good, it has a warm fuzzy feeling to it, it appears harmless on the surface, but it is evil underneath. Just like the hate laws are evil, because they stifle FREE SPEECH.
You have the God given right to speak your mind, and I have the right to, ignore you, or agree with you, or insult you back if I felt insulted at all.
This NEW AGE garbage is just a set-up for the one world government and one world leader and one world religion that is coming our way. And it has nothing to do with the natural order of things, or , bad karma, or being enlightened, but it has everything to do with the war between good and evil that has been here since the beginning. Believe it, or not. Haven't you ever asked yourself, why does a free nation uses excuses to pass unconstitutional laws? The truth is, they no good reasons only excuses, and that should be a RED FLAG to anyone who believes in our constitution.
I see this NEW AGE thinking all over this BB and I feel sad, that so many have been herded into this way of thinking [through schools and peer pressure and the media, it is all over ] and they have no idea they've been sucked into a scheme that will be coming to a head in a few short years.
I pray that you and others wake up to the con job and escape the corral you are currently in, but that won't happen unless you are seeking answers. Oprah has been sucked in as well. She's a pied piper, leading the lemmings to their demise and no one inside the movement sees the danger up ahead.

Well, if she is leading the "awakening" I suppose I could think of worse.....maybe she'll have gifts hidden under all our couches at home for us.
Although I am pretty skeptical of her since she is friends with Tom Cruise. Also, she is a media titan, and we all know how the media likes to control certain aspects of the truth.

I'm wondering if any one can shed some light on this issue i seem to be having.
It of course concerns Oprah and her attempting to teach alongside Ekhart Tolle about enlightenment etc.
I have read the book about four time, quite a while ago before i heard about Oprah becoming obsessed with it.
But something makes me feel very uneasy about this while thing.
For one, personally that book opened my eyes to so much, and i live life a lot happier and just with a whole new outlook. It's incredible.
But then i see Oprah "preaching" this "new age" spiritual teachings, and i feel there much be a catch.
