What Jesus Do You Preach to Your People

Oprah has skyrocketed the career of another author on her book club. But this endorsement is a bit heart-wrenching. She’s taking her fans through a year-long “Course in Miracles” by Marianne Williamson. Each day, her book club site features a different lesson on this essentially new religion. Here are some quotes from this book:

  • “There is no sin.”
  • “A slain Christ has no meaning.”
  • “The journey to the cross should be the last ‘ useless journey.”
  • “Do not make the pathetic error of ‘clinging to the old rugged cross.”
  • “The name of Jesus Christ as such is but a symbol… It is a symbol that is safely used as a replacement for the many names of all the gods to which you pray.”
  • “The recognition of God is the recognition of yourself.”
  • “The Atonement is the final lesson he [man] need learn, for it teaches him that, never having sinned, he has no need of salvation.”

One thought on “What Jesus Do You Preach to Your People

  1. Thanks for your post, I listened to Oprah’s first webinar with Tolle’s new book, A New Earth, and I posted on how Oprah has transcended from talk show host to uber-evangelist.
