Oprah, is in the news, Here is a clip about concerns people have. But notice the last line of the clip...Oprah believes in one God. Notice that Jesus Christ was not mentioned. 'One God' is very ambiguous and can mean a whole lot of things. Now Oprah is free to believe whatever she would like to (as everyone else is) and should not be condemned for that. but a fair question is whether what she takes Christianity to be is what the New Testament teaches. In my view, it isn't about being mean to Oprah or anyone else; but people don't create reality by believing certain things. There is a fact of the matter--wholly apart--from what we believe. If not, truth and falsity make no sense whatsoever. Bottom line, don't be mean to Oprah ;) but Think Christianly about the issues she raises and examine what are the core aspects of Christianity.
