Oprah Winfrey says that at age 20 she began to question the teaching about God when her pastor said God is a jealous God. Oprah could not reconcile her concept of God with the thought that He could be jealous of her. From that point forward, she began to build her own religion and concept of God and Jesus. The God Oprah promotes today is not the God of the Bible, and Oprah has led hundreds of her bimbo admirers into her false religion. The major mistake of Oprah is that God is not jealous of HER or any person.
If Oprah had taken the time, she would have discovered that God is not jealous of anyone. He is jealous for his people and His name. To be jealous for your name or family means you do not want anything or anyone to harm or tarnish them.
Oprah, herself, is jealous for her name, business and her friends. There is a world of difference between being jealous of someone and for someone. If Oprah had read her Bible, she would not have made the tragic error, nor would she be leading millions astray with her personal religion of good works. Every Christian should be jealous for their name and testimony.
