Birds of a Feather

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that popular New Age writer Ayanla Vanzant made an appearance at Christ Universal Temple, the confused and heretical headquarters of "Rev." Johnnie Coleman. Coleman has for five decades offered African Americans in the Chicago area her brand of "Christianity" replete with "higher consciousness" teachings and ideas. Vanzant, the author of 13 books for women and a frequent guest on the Oprah Winfrey show, is a Yoruba priestess and during her visit offered a "lesson" called "No Other Gods." Apparently she sprinkled her talk with a few Bible references and anecdotes, but the One True God was nowhere to be found.

Coleman, Winfrey and Vanzant have done more to introduce soul-destroying, anti-Christian ideas to the public than any three women I can think of. Winfrey and Vanzant command national television audiences with their respective shows. Vanzant and Coleman have appeared on Tavis Smiley's popular state of the Black union programs. Women from every background enjoy Oprah, and large crowds of African-American women have given Vanzant a cult-like following.

Man, do we ever need discernment! Tim Challies, hurry up and get that manuscript to Crossway!

like shai linne said: "...sometimes i think the anti-Christ might be Oprah!/ It puts me in a true rage/that she pumps the New Age - on television! Like FIVE DAYS A WEEK!/Yet, only a few gauge, that that won't get you saved...from hell, so listen! Cuz my God came to speak!/ He's warnin' you to flee from the wrath to come/by puttin' faith in His matchless Son!"
