(BNc)- A new booklet exposes the errors of Oprah’s New Age religion and seeks to counter influence of her book club selection which espouses it.
by Brad Harrub
While most modern Americans would never consider themselves members of a cult, (much less drink Kool-Aid like what occurred in Jonestown), a new charismatic movement has emerged, and the leaders of this new “awakening” are Oprah Winfrey and Eckhart Tolle.
It is no secret that a simple nod from Oprah and her book club can instantly transform a novel into a bestseller. But this year that book club has transformed itself into a bully pulpit for New Age religion.
In January, 2008, Winfrey announced her 61st Oprah’s Book Club selection, A New Earth, written by Tolle.
However, this book is not like choices in the past — it’s not a novel or even a memoir. In fact, Oprah called it her boldest choice yet. It deals with a new form of spirituality — a handbook for New Age religion.
Oprah has a tremendous amount of influence. And that influence has now reached its tentacles into the church. Many Christians are reading this book and joining the online classes.
Sadly, many New Testament Christians are under the false assumption that one can safely blend these two belief systems together. Nothing could be further from the truth.
After researching this New Age religion for several weeks, we have prepared a rebuttal for Oprah’s New Age religion.
Take the time to learn the truth and share it with fellow Christians. Dewayne Bryant and I have put together a short booklet exposing the errors of this New Age religion. We encourage everyone (especially parents, teachers, preachers, elders) to arm yourselves with the Truth.
This new booklet is $2.50 + s/h and can be ordered online or by calling (866) 313-6474 toll-free.
