A New Earth

Oprah's new book selection for her book club is called 'A New Earth' by E. Tolle. The book came up in last week's discussion of the Daniel and eschatology (the study of End Times). Tolle says that there is no God, only god within ourselves. I attached a YouTube video (7 minutes long) to give the 'high-lights' of the recent discussions between Oprah and Tolle. I think it is important as Christ-followers to be aware of what the world is listening to and be able to "give an answer to every man that asks you a reason of the hope that is in you..." (1 Pet. 3.15)

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, ... lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away...
II Timothy 3:2-7

"Finally, my brothers, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities , against powers, against the rules of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore, take unto you the whole armour of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day..."
Eph. 6:10-18
(This video contains a little political jab at the end... that's another debate for another day.)

Thank you Hillary for finding and posting that.
At the house here, that "new earth" class has been watched on the internet by one of the residences here. I thought it had to do with global warming and environmental stuff like that but now I know and am sad for that person watching that online. :(
I'm going to put that youtube link on an email and forward to the people I know who should know about this and perhaps spred the world.
Thanks again for your faithfulness in spreading the good news!!

I'm a big Oprah fan (I like the non-trashy show content she usually has - most other talk shows are very trashy) and this stuff really scares me.

A million people listen to this stuff. It's scary the influence she has.
