Exo 34:14 For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.

There is a hubbub going on today concerning Oprah Winfrey and her dingbat religion she is starting or supporting. If Christians were to use the Bible as our guide, we would not seek advice from an immoral woman. (It is a known truth that Oprah has a “partner” she is not married to and has confessed publicly to having an affair with a married man…) Proverbs 7:5,24-27 Now therefore, listen to me, my children; Pay attention to the words of my mouth: 25 Do not let your heart turn aside to her ways, Do not stray into her paths; 26 For she has cast down many wounded, And all who were slain by her were strong men. 27 Her house is the way to hell. Descending to the chambers of death.
Christian band Casting Crowns pleads,
“What if people prayed and Stopped asking Oprah what to do?” But I digress.

People get upset when you call sin what it is and also when you attempt to make any kind of judgment about anybody. Which is what I want to post about.
Oprah says she grew up in Baptist churches and bought into the church until she heard the preacher say that God was jealous. She was furious. She would not and could not worship a God who was not like the God she wanted. She would have no jealous God, even though the Bible calls him just that in many places. She would have no Bible telling her about God. She wanted a God of her own imagination. Jer 23:17 They say still unto them that despise me, The LORD hath said, Ye shall have peace; and they say unto every one that walketh after the imagination of his own heart, No evil shall come upon you..
What does it mean that God is jealous? If you are like me, you don’t like posts longer than 100 words, so I will answer this question in another post.

That picture of Oprah is just plain disturbing
