At a UCLA rally during the 2008 presidential campaign, Oprah said, “Barack Obama has the gift of wisdom . . . I’m not voting for Barack Obama because he’s black, I’m voting for Barack Obama because he’s brilliant.” The truth is that Barack Obama is gifted with the ability to distract and deceive. His words are slick, not brilliant.
In Iowa, Oprah said, “But when you listen to Barack Obama, when you really hear him, you witness a very rare thing. You witness a politician who has an ear for eloquence, and a tongue dipped in unvarnished truth.” The truth is that when you really hear Obama, you witness a tongue dipped in unvarnished lies.
In South Carolina, Oprah said of Obama, “It isn’t enough to tell the truth. We need politicians who know how to be the truth.” The reality is that Obama, from his manufactured past to the present, is himself the lie.
How could Oprah get Obama exactly backwards? The answer is that the queen of pop culture experienced a passionate soulish transformation in the months prior to her anointing of Barack Obama as her choice for president of the United States. Oprah abandoned any belief she may have had in Christ and God, and eagerly welcomed the lies of the Genesis serpent as truth. Oprah embraced the serpent’s teachings through one of its most deluded apostles, a New Age little creep named Eckhart Tolle.
Oprah made Tolle famous by promoting his books “The Power of Now” (TPN) and “A New Earth” (ANE). Both books do nothing more than present the warmed-over lies of the Genesis serpent as wondrous bits of enlightenment for humanity: the word of our Creator cannot be trusted, you are God, feeling trumps faith and, believe it or not, there is no death.
Tolle develops the Genesis serpent’s insinuation that the word of our Creator cannot be trusted to its logical end, boldly declaring outright that God Himself should be ignored in favor of the self: “The word God is limiting not only because of thousands of years of misperception and misuse, but also because it implies an entity other than you” (TPN, p. 224). Oprah agrees.
At the burning bush, Yahweh expressed His identity to Moses as “I Am That I Am.” Tolle says of himself “I Am that I Am,” and tells his followers that they may say the same of themselves as well (ANE, p. 79). Oprah agrees.
Tolle urges his followers to abandon all belief in God and to trust their feelings instead: “Who you are requires no belief. In fact, every belief is an obstacle” (ANE, p. 189, Tolle’s emphasis). Oprah agrees.
As for the alleged unreality of death, Tolle writes, “[Y]ou are indestructible, immortal. This is not a belief. It is absolute certainty that needs no external evidence or proof from some secondary source” (TPN, p. 220). Oprah agrees.
According to Tolle, the Sacred Scriptures are no longer sacred, having lost their essence, power, and inspiration. Tolle scoffs at the central tenet of Christianity, Christ’s bodily resurrection from the dead, calling it one of many “myths” (TPN, p.115). Tolle himself is now the ultimate interpreter of all things spiritual. Tolle’s words, not Christ’s, “contain a great deal of spiritual power;” Tolle’s books, not the Scriptures, are “spiritually alive” (TPN, p. 8, ANE, p. 7).
Tolle’s promise of spiritual understanding and power comes with a taboo, however: you must not think critically, you must not reason logically: “Only through awareness—not through thinking—can you differentiate between fact and opinion” (ANE, pp. 68-69). Taking the time to analyze Tolle’s doctrine will become the greatest hindrance to your alleged spiritual progress, so don’t do it: “The mind always wants to categorize and compare, but this book will work better for you if you do not attempt to compare its terminology with that of other teachings; otherwise, you will probably become confused” (TPN, p. 9). And whatever you do, don’t compare Tolle’s teachings with the lies of the Genesis serpent! That will ruin everything!
Tolle adds the threat of death to those who reject his teachings, even though he has said there is no death: “A significant portion of the earth’s population will soon recognize, if they haven’t already done so, that humanity is now faced with a stark choice: Evolve or die” (ANE, p. 21).
At the height of her Tolle-inspired demonic enchantment, Oprah recognized a kindred spirit in Obama. And so, using the teaching and language of her mankind-exalting, serpent-inspired doctrine, Oprah anointed Obama with glorifying praise, calling him “an evolved leader.” Oprah explained, “I’m just following my own truth, and that truth has led to Barack Obama.” Oprah’s own “truth,” as we have seen, is the vain embrace of the warmed-over lies of the Genesis serpent. Oprah anointed Obama from the dark side, and Obama welcomed it.
As Oprah turbo-charged Obama’s campaign, getting him the million votes he needed to secure the Democratic nomination, her staff prepared to spread the Serpent/Tolle/Oprah doctrine worldwide. On March 3, 2008, after having anointed Obama in Iowa, South Carolina, and California, Oprah kicked off her ten-week global Internet online class touting Tolle’s mega-bestseller, A New Earth, and its importance in raising everyone’s “consciousness.” According to Wikipedia, approximately 35 million people participated in these ten webinars with Tolle and Oprah. The interactive webcast reached into more than 139 countries.
Michelle Obama duly noted Oprah’s great success in her venture with Tolle. On May 20, Time magazine published Michelle’s tribute to Oprah as part of its 100 most influential people of 2008. It read in part:
Oprah is a wonderful friend and an incredible force. Her friendship and support have meant so much to Barack and me . . . Using her platform to serve as a global role model, she challenges us [Barack and me] to make the world as it is the world as it should be. And she is always the first to show us how it can be done.
Oprah’s means of making “the world as it is the world as it should be” involves denying the Word of God and spreading worldwide the Genesis serpent’s “wisdom,” couched in terms of saving the planet, raising “awareness,” and helping humanity to “evolve.” The reality beneath the New Age fluff is that Oprah has challenged Michelle and her husband to make the world as it is the world as the Genesis serpent says it should be: God forgotten and mankind exalted.
Those who see through the haze of humanist propaganda today recognize that America’s basic problem is not political or social or economic: It is spiritual. A lying spirit drew Oprah to Obama and that spirit binds them together. Both of them still claim to be Christians.
Now, with cracks evident in Obama’s faux persona, Oprah must accuse white America of “racism” because she cannot acknowledge Obama’s lies without admitting the super-egregious spiritual lies that she has eagerly embraced and spread.
In my view, II Timothy 2:26 applies here: Oprah has fallen into “the trap of the Adversary, having been caught alive by him, for that one’s will.” The verse before it makes it clear that only God can grant her “repentance to come into a realization of the truth” so that she might be “sobering up” out of that trap. Let those of us who believe pray that God enables her to do just that.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
