Oprah and Christianity…

October 16, 2008 — Leave a comment

My friend, Troy, wrote post today on his blog about the Oprah-ization of Christians. It is right on the mark, in my opinion. Here’s an excerpt:

Don’t get me wrong. I like Oprah. I like her show. There are lots of cool and informative, entertaining guests on it. Oprah is not a spiritual authority, however. The Jesus she proclaims alongside all of these other philosophies, is not the Jesus of the Bible. I don’t care how many times she hosts Rick Warren or Denzel Washington or how many times she tears up at some kid singing Amazing Grace. She is not the authority Christ followers should be taking their cues from.

Take a minute to read his entire post, HERE.

I'm a picker. I'm a grinner. I'm a lover. And I'm a sinner. I make my music in the sun.
