Death is misunderstood by most Americans and there are fewer greater influences that shape our culture’s thinking on death than Oprah Winfrey.
In this episode of “Now is the Time” I identify the problems with Oprah’s views on death and the afterlife and I discuss how that affects your understanding of the resurrection.
Below are three videos that include the thoughts of some of Oprah Winfrey’s most trusted “spiritual guides”. Each one represents a slightly different view on the soul after death.
The soul continues on as part of everything.
The soul continues on individually in the spirit realm.
The soul finds a new form.
The Bible presents a different picture of death!
Man was not designed to die thus death is unnatural
Gen 2:17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.”
All death is the result of sin
Rom 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Death is a merciful act of God
Gen 6:3 Then the LORD said, “My Spirit shall not abide in man forever, for he is flesh: his days shall be 120 years.”
Death is final and is followed by judgment
Heb 9:27 And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment.
Death is conquered by Jesus alone
1 Cor 15:55-57
“O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?”
The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.
But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
