Oprah: A Conduit To Hell

Concerned Pastor Says She's Dealing 'Spiritual Crack'

Yes, the devil is deceiving. But who would've thought he'd use the most beloved media mogul of our time - the queen of feel-good talk - Oprah Winfrey, as a tool.

For Pastor Bill Keller, the world's leading Internet evangelist and founder of LivePrayer.com, there is no mistaking the danger of Winfrey's submersion in and preaching of New Age theologies. According to Keller and many other evangelical Christians, it is a misguided path to hell, and far too many people are now walking it thanks to her.

"This woman, with a multimillion member fan base worldwide, is claiming to be a Christian, but is drawing deeper and deeper into New Age programming and the promotion of spiritual concepts that deny the one truth Christians believe."

Keller points out that earlier this year, Oprah began teaching a year-long "Course in Miracles" on her XM Satellite radio channel. It allegedly preaches of a "new revelation" from "Jesus" to help humanity work through these troubled times. But the "Jesus" bears no doctrinal resemblance to the Bible's Jesus Christ and the theology denies any concept of sin.

Meanwhile, her latest venture in New Age teachings was a 10-week Internet seminar in partnership with best-selling New Age author Eckhart Tolle. Together, they've promoted Tolle's new book, A New Earth, Awaking Your Life's Purpose, which, according to many, is filled with perverted spiritual teachings.

"The problem is, all this stuff is like spiritual crack," Keller says. "It has no faith substance. It all makes people feel good, but it leaves them empty and wanting more. Well, Oprah is there to give it to them time and again. Hence, she is causing their spiritual destruction."

Keller is available for interviews to offer more on this debate.

The news media has crowned Pastor Bill Keller the next big thing in mass-media religion. He is the host of Live Prayer with Bill Keller, the nation's only live call-in faith and values-based program airing exclusively on the Internet. The program deals head-on with issues ranging from divorce, homosexuality, abortion, sexual abuse, pornography, drug addiction, radical Islam, race relations, spousal abuse, false prophets and more, from a conservative, biblical world-view. Live Prayer is unscripted and unedited, giving it a fresh and totally spontaneous approach to problem solving.

The program can be seen live, Monday through Friday from 10 PM to 11 PM EST, and 24/7 through programs archived on LivePrayer.com.

Live Prayer with Bill Keller is positioned to become the world's most-watched Internet television broadcast. For information, please visit www.liveprayer.com
