A list compiled by Sharon Lee Giganti, 2009©

A Course in Miracles is the name of a book that was written by a channeled spirit, who claimed to be Jesus.

Even though these false prophets are well received in the world, the Christian who belongs to God has a greater power in the truth. . " - - - - From the NAB footnotes re: 1st John 4:1-6

Canon 66: According to Canon Law. . ." No new public revelation is to be expected before the glorious manifestation of our Lord Jesus Christ. "
THERE IS TO BE NO " SURPASSING" OR CORRECTING THE REVELATION OF CHRIST:Canon 67: According to Canon Law... Christian faith cannot accept "revelations" that claim to surpass or correct the Revelation of which Christ is the fulfillment, as is the case in certain non-Christian religions and also in certain recent sects which base themselves on such " revelations" . - - - -See Paragraph 67 of Catholic Catechism

Is Oprah Leading People Away From Christ?
Oprah has totally transformed herself and her media empire. She is no longer a microphone-toting interviewer of tearful guests and cheering audiences. Believe it or not, she has become. . .a spiritual icon.
Because of her, New Age teachings are being pitched to millions of our fellow Catholics - many of whom are being taken in by the mega-popular Oprah Winfrey and her promotion of three key books in the New Age Movement: The Secret. . .A New Earth. . .and A Course In Miracles.
