Eric butterworth on dating
This had to be very confusing to her audience; and when the first caller asked how Oprah reconciled this “new form of spirituality” with her “Christian” beliefs, Oprah responded by talking about “Christ consciousness” – …Well, my question is regarding religion and spirituality.... it’s really opened my eyes up to a new way of thinking, a new form of spirituality that doesn’t always align with the teachings of Christianity.So my question is to you, Oprah, how have you reconciled these spiritual teachings with your Christian beliefs? I’ve reconciled it because I was able to open my mind about the absolute, indescribable hugeness of that which we call God.When you “shift,” you are not leaving the ego at all!Setting up God in your own heart, you make a mockery of the one true God.
Oprah and Tolle completely invalidate the interpersonal lessons they are teaching when they suddenly “shift” to the teaching of the “Divinity of Man,” which is the core New Age belief that man is “God” and that man is “Christ.” For whatever good Tolle and Oprah might be sharing with their audience, it is utterly undone when they build it on the foundation of the “Divinity of Man” teaching. Obviously this book is connecting deeply within people. Because Tolle is giving very practical applications on how to be a better person and how to love your neighbor, becoming more sensitive to others and to your own life.These very practical things that he is talking about are part of the reason I was drawn into the New Age for 5 years before realizing I was being deceived.Because many Christians are rightfully concerned about heretical New Age teachings, Oprah and Tolle and most New Age leaders are now trying to redefine the term “New Age" to mean something selfish and frivolous.New Age teacher Marianne Williamson is particularly clever at this. To confuse matters even more, Oprah described herself on the webcast as a “Christian” and not as the New Age believer that she is.
It is to fall into the very deception the real Jesus Christ warned us to beware of in Matthew 24:4-5: (New York: Harper & Row, 1968), p.
