Interesting Oprah

I found myself in conversation with some friends the other day about Oprah Winfrey. A woman with a great deal of power and cultural influence as she continues to grow her empire. (media, print, entrepreneurial, etc.) and now a new hit television show The Big Give. We all like her as a person, and were commenting about some of the “good” things she seems to be doing, with the multitudes chanting her praises along within the church. We agreed that Oprah is definitely doing some good. Personally, I like Oprah as person, but have reservations regarding her authenticity and agenda. What is behind the person herself? Many who are naive think she is a Christian, but not so — at least in the orthodox sense. What she is promoting is a new kind of spirituality. Here agenda and what she believes is important. We need not be confused.
