The Late Show with Stephen Colbert hosted a blasphemous segment with New Age Oprah that they called, “‘Oprah Winfrey gets some career advice from a slightly less famous figure: the Lord.” During the show, they openly mocked God and Jesus.
As the show opens, Steven Colbert begins to introduce Oprah, but she interrupts before he can say her name. “We’re here with” Colbert begins, then Oprah blurts out, “God.” Colbert continues, “Miss Oprah Winfrey.” Being that there was a skit planned with a character “god” later in the segment, many would wipe this off, but with all the hype around Oprah and proof that she has denied Jesus and is aligning with new age guru Eckhart Tolle, we have to wonder if she was really joking or not.
When Democrats began to see her as their potential candidate, Oprah told US Magazine that she “went into prayer.” Saying, “God, if you think I’m supposed to run, you gotta tell me, and it has to be so clear that not even I can miss it. And I haven’t gotten that yet”.
She confirmed that she still had yet to receive the sign she prayed for. And then, the cameras go to the ceiling where a projection of what Colbert’s idea of God must be. The projection shows a tired looking old man who says in a Barney sounding voice that he’s a huge fan “wow Oprah knows who I am, I can’t wait to tell Jesus.” The audience erupts in laughter.
Colbert then says, “Can we hurry this up God I’m kinda in the middle of talking with someone IMPORTANT”, making it clear God has no importance to him or others of this world.
Blatantly mocking the old-English language of the King James Bible, Colbert’s god says, “I hear thou seekest a sign, well is this clear enough?” He holds up a sign that says “run!” showing his support for an Oprah 2020 campaign. Choking on the supposed hilarity of the situation, Oprah says, “all I can say, god, is that run is now a part of my exercise routine, I can tell you that.”
Colbert’s god then tries to clear things up and bounces back in all-out campaign gear chanting, “Oprah Winfrey 2020! Yes, she can!” “Come on Oprah I had all this merch printed up, I put it up on my wife’s credit card, she’s gonna kill me.”
Is this really what our culture finds funny? Mocking God and Jesus and acting as if our creator is akin to a child’s story that we grow out of like the Easter bunny or Santa? The show reduced itself to mocking the Bible by comparing it to the novels picked by Oprah as her favorites and put in her book club.
In 2008, Oprah presented a book intended for her audience to “awaken their spirits,” A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle. Tolle is an extremely popular new age leader in the United States, his books quote a wide range of religious writings including everything from the Bhagavad Gita to the Holy Bible. He, like Oprah, believes that Jesus is not the only way to the father.
On her talk show, Oprah spoke of her New Age beliefs. One of her audience members was passed the mic to express her Biblical belief that there are two forces, our God that we can depend on and the power of darkness. She explains to Oprah that we are either on one path or the other.
Oprah somewhat angrily responds, “there is this wonderful book by Daniel Quin, it talks about one of the mistakes that humans make is believing that there is only one way to live and that we don’t accept that there are diverse ways of being in the world, and many paths to what you call God and her path might be something else, and when she gets there she might call it the light.”
This was spoken by Oprah years ago, but just this month the movie ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ was released in which the talk show host played a goddess guiding a girl to the light. Light is a term that can be easily misrepresented. Jesus Christ is the true light of the world, but beware because Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. The New Age doctrine is traced to openly professing Luciferians such as Helena Blavatsky and Alice Bailey who worshiped the light of Lucifer and call themselves ‘light bearers.’
Going back to the segment from the show, Oprah then debates another audience member who says, “There is one way and only one way, and that is through Jesus. If you don’t believe that, you’re all buying into the lie. Jesus cannot come back until that Gospel is preached in the four corners of this earth.” After such a statement, Oprah’s arguments are null and void and she ends the segment.
