A few months ago I had asked what I thought was an innocent question on facebook: "What new shows on Oprah's network are you looking forward to seeing?" Oh, my. I was flood with all opinions of my friends - mostly against Oprah. I said my view here.
I do think there is a sentiment in some Christian circles that Oprah is not a Christian. They base this opinion on several comments Oprah has made over the years. But I think they need to re-think those opinions.
I was totally impressed with her "love letter" she gave as her last show. You can read it at Oprah.com. It was truly beautiful. In this love letter, she gave all praise to God - and named Jesus - not just any god, but GOD.
Are all of her beliefs - her theology - agree with mine? No. And I think that's okay. God has made us all different - that's plainly seen in nature as well as every type of church! But I do think we need to quit focusing on what we don't agree on, but instead focus on what we do agree on...And let God be God.
