In fact, Oprah has become such a spiritual icon in America that USAToday has called her "a spiritual leader for the new millennium, a moral voice of authority for the nation."
In an unscientific poll conducted on Beliefnet.com, 33% of the 6,600 respondents said that Oprah has had "a more profound impact" on their spiritual lives than their pastors or priests.
Oprah's massive television audience of ten million viewers each day and her magazine readership of over 2.7 million each month gives Oprah a tremendous platform with which to influence American culture.
Without a doubt, Oprah Winfrey is one of the most highly regarded and listened to celebrities in the world.
So what, exactly, is Oprah teaching about spirituality?
Well, during one shocking national broadcast, Oprah Winfrey stated that Jesus did not come to the earth to die on the cross for our sins.
Instead, Oprah told millions of her viewers that the real purpose for Jesus coming was to teach all of us "Christ consciousness".
Oprah is also insisting that there could not possibly be "one way" to God, and that all "religions" are basically different paths to the same God.
Earlier this year, Oprah held weekly internet "lessons" for the entire world with her new spiritual "superstar" Eckhart Tolle.
These are just a couple of the incredibly disturbing things that Eckhart Tolle has written in his books:
"All religions are equally false and equally true, depending on how you use them."
"Man made God in his own image."
Oprah has also been promoting the teaching of New Age guru Marianne Williamson, and she has given Williamson a radio show on her own radio network to promote such beliefs as:
"There is no sin."
A "slain Christ has no meaning."
"Do not make the pathetic error of 'clinging to the old rugged cross.'"
"The recognition of God is the recognition of yourself."
These are the things that Oprah REALLY believes and has been promoting over television, radio, the internet and in her magazine.
In Matthew 24:10-11, Jesus said:
At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people.
Oprah Winfrey is literally deceiving millions and millions of people.
Have you been deceived?
Oprah claims that there are multiple ways to heaven.
If there was another way to heaven, then why did Jesus have to die on the cross?
If there were many other ways for our sins to be paid for, then why didn't Jesus just come down, point out some of the various ways to be pleasing to God, and then go back into heaven?
Why did Jesus have to die on the cross?
The reality is that there is no other way, and that the only way to God is through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God's wrath remains on him.
Will you choose to believe Oprah or will you choose to believe the Word of God?
The video below contains video footage of many of the things that have been described in this article. It is incredibly shocking stuff.
Welcome to the "church of Oprah" where there is no sin, no need for salvation, no heaven, no hell and where YOU are God:
