Practice Your Discernment


“Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.”    1 John 4:1 (NKJV)

“Having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!”   2 Timothy 3:5 (NKJV)


If you are an Oprah fan you should watch this video. She is lost and leading many astray. She has fallen into a New Age religion. We need to pray for her and for those she is leading astray.

Times are getting darker and trials lie ahead. Don’t put your faith in a person, not even your Pastor.  Put your faith in God alone! There are good leaders in the church, but we all need to DISCERN and test Christian leaders with scripture, like the Bereans of old.  

Just because somebody you respect believes or teaches something does not mean what they teach is right. Like sheep, we can be led astray by wolves in sheep’s clothing. This is why every believer needs to be in the Word of God on a daily basis. Don’t totally rely on others to feed you, feed yourself!!

This is a good link if you want to read more about False Teachers….                                                                                                        +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ “If anyone teaches otherwise and does not agree to the sound instruction of our Lord Jesus Christ and to godly teaching, they are conceited and understand nothing. They have an unhealthy interest in controversies and quarrels about words that result in envy, strife, malicious talk, evil suspicions and constant friction between people of corrupt mind, who have been robbed of the truth and who think that godliness is a means to financial gain.”  1 Timothy 6:3-6 (NIV)

“Then the brethren immediately sent Paul and Silas away by night to Berea. When they arrived, They went into the synagogue of the Jews. These were more fair-minded than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so. ”    Acts 17:10-11 (NKJV)

  1. Thanks, Cheryl, for having the courage to share this; I have believed this for many years about Oprah! BTW, I could not open the link…not sure why, but you might want to check this. Thanks for posting!

  2. Yes thank you Cheryl…timely article. Goes along with the one I posted on Vine of Life News about Rick Warren. Rick Warren, Rob Bell, Oprah Winfrey, Joel Osteen, and Ken Copeland are all extremely dangerous people leading the uninformed down very dangerous pathways.
    Keep posting the truth!
    God bless

    • Sorry I don’t know how to put a link in WP that you can click on, but wouldn’t a lot of these other people also be people we need to be discerning about what they teach?

      • Hi Cat Lover,
        Read Greg’s comment. He listed several “Christians” who are dangerous and who are able to lead many astray. This is why we are responsible for our own walks. As I said…. we need to feed ourselves the Word of God. Sure, listen to messages on the radio and go to church, hopefully your Pastor studies the Word and is feeding his flock. Just don’t neglect your own quiet time with God.

        • Hi Chery, Yes I know what he wrote, I was just pointing out there are a whole bunch more people who are Christians or say they are and yet you have to be careful of what they say because they aren’t teaching/preaching the truth. They are off on some side trip that is unbiblical in what they are saying. Joyce Meyer for one, is VERY popular with many people and yet her beliefs aren’t lining up with Scripture. All I’m saying is there are MORE than just the ones mentioned and you need to pay attention to everyone….even your own church pastor and if HE isn’t lining up with scripture, there’s a BIG problem and you either need to say something or leave and find a church where the truth and only the truth is preached. Thanks for your message.

    • Thanks Greg!
      It is wonderful how the Holy Spirit works to get his point across…. by using different people and different sites to cover the same message. I posted a think about Rick Warren on my FB page yesterday!

  3. I will be posting another article about Oprah on the following site…

Luke 21:36 "Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man."
