Poprah: The Empire Strikes Back

July 15th, 2013 Post by

Poprah devilIf Poprah is the supreme pontiff of New Ageism then she has recently appointed her very own College of Cardinals. But the most “shocking” thing is from which pool she decided to draw water from: the “Christian” Church. But what confessing Christian would stoop so low as to deny Jesus and rub elbows with the Pope of Popular Opinion? The one and only, Joel Osteen. Her highness of heresy and the Cardinal of pompous prosperity will be teaming up with their Bishop – Bishop T. D. Jakes at Megafest 2013 in Dallas Texas.

Oprah’s Lifeclass will be having it’s own segment at Megafest where she will be discussing… well life as she has experienced it and teaching how to reach down to the “deity” within to reach your own potential. Since it is true that Christians are known by the fruit that we bear and that Pastors are meant to be the stewards of the Holy things of God and defenders of the sheep, what then should we make of T.D. allowing this New Age charlatan and corruptor of souls to speak to his flock? Moreover, what are we to make of Joel gladly and proudly joining Oprah’s side in the proclamation of damnable lies under the guise of some kind of Christian morality and/or ethic? Yet, Oprah, Joel, and T. D. will be united together at Megafest to, “try to figure out how to live on purpose.” (Guess which one of this unholy anti-trinity said that.)

JoelShouldn’t we Christians be outraged by this? Shouldn’t we be up in arms that a Christian Pastor would allow a New Age Gnostic into the midst of Christians to lecture them on finding themselves and pushing forward to be all you can be? No. No we shouldn’t. Because Joel and T.D. are every bit a “Christian” and every bit of a Pastor as Oprah is. That is to say; neither. After all you can’t be unionistic when you are in like-minded company. So as Christians what are we to make of all this? We should warn those who might be tempted to go to this assembly of evil. We should explain to them what the Gospel is so that they can recognize when it is not there. We should proclaim the true word of God to our people and rejoice that we have the truth which has set us free and not a bunch of hot air blasted at us by a bunch of Gnostics. Other than that we are to, “let the dead bury the dead.”

Preaching to the crowd and not for the crowd is a mistake that any and nearly every Pastor has made. Yet it is a whole other issue when your theology demands it. That’s what these prosperity preachers are all about. They (Osteen and Jakes) have for years preached that if you look inside of yourself God will bless you with riches. It’s bad enough that they have been preaching a “theology” of damage to millions of people, but now with the new leader of the coven, Poprah certainly will have the floor to teach a damning message of self-salvation through positive thinking and taping into the “goddess within.” To say the least many souls will be misled at the Megafest heresy-o-rama in Dallas this year. It would appear that if you follow the hierarchy of this new “papacy” high enough you’ll find a fella with a pointy red tail. Christ have mercy.

    T.D. Jakes is a bishop in a Pentecostal fellowship (link) which confesses the heresy of modalism; also known as “oneness theology” and “Jesus only” teaching.

    Megafest certainly involves a “trinity” of false teachers!

    It’s all a mixture of Ayn Rand/Alister Crowley Satanism.
