In an earlier post I waxed poetic and mentioned Oprah Winfrey and Eckhart Tolle. Tolle seems to be the latest new age practitioner that Oprah has latched onto. It's scary because Oprah has such a widespread influence. When she puts forward someone's ideas that are contrary to scripture, millions could potentially be guided away from the Truth, Jesus Christ, and into the quagmire of falsehood.
Donald Whitney (pictured) is an author who I respect. He has written about the errors that Eckhart Tolle is presenting as truth in his book A New Earth.
Check this link to read Whitney's review and then make a decision on the side of Truth.
Jesus Christ IS the ONLY Way! He said it! That's the Truth!
I am so greatful to Eckhart Tolle and Oprah for turning me onto Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor and her beautiful book ""My Stroke of Insight"". Her story is amazing and her gift to all of us is a book purchase away I'm happy to say.ReplyDelete
Dr Taylor was a Harvard brain scientist when she had a stroke at age 37. What was amazing was that her left brain was shut down by the stroke - where language and thinking occur - but her right brain was fully functioning. She experienced bliss and nirvana and the way she writes about it (or talks about it in her now famous TED talk) is incredible.
What I took away from Dr. Taylor's book above all, and why I recommend it so highly, is that you don't have to have a stroke or take drugs to find the deep inner peace that she talks about. Her book explains how. ""I want what she's having"", and thanks to this wonderful book, I can! Thank you Dr. Taylor, and thank you Eckhart and Oprah.
Thank you for your comment. I haven't read or heard of Dr. Taylor's book but I've certainly been following the Oprah/Eckhart liaison and have much reason for concern.
The only true peace in this world comes from a personal relationship with the God of heaven through His Son Jesus Christ. When anyone denies that Jesus Christ is God and that He is the only way to heaven, they are going against the truths of Scripture and against God Himself. That's a dangerous position to place oneself in.
I trust that you will discover true life and true meaning through an encounter with the Way, the Truth and the Life, JESUS CHRIST Himself.
With love and concern,
