Loved Chuck's article on Oprah, "Oprah's new Easter." I guess Chuck has been writing for over a year. I went and checked out his archives and was amazed of the content and reasoning ability. He's apparently in syndication now through www.CreatorsSyndicate.com You can check out his others articles at http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/archives.as...

You're falling into a trap if you get caught up in this "spiritual enlightenment" mumbo jumbo. I'm telling you, this is the oldest trick in the book - literally. When the serpent came to Eve in the Garden of Eden, he promised her grand visions of enlightenment as well, and where did it get her? I'll tell you. She and Adam were kicked out of the garden and began the process we now start from the day we are born - the process of dying! See my comments at http://messianicteacher.blogspot.com/ .

I read the book "The Power of Now" and I get Impressed because all that he says is true and I would like that other people could read it too. I think the world would be a better place if people engage themselves in being better persons to others and mainly to themselves.
Adan and Eva? I don't know if they existed but the peace and happiness that we get when we live according to this teachings, This is REAL!!!

For those who would like to read an interesting article that explores Eckhart Tolle in the light of a more comprehensive spiritual path, this one is viewable on the insight21 website:

The Limits of Mysticism - Eckhart Tolle meets anthroposophy

(Anthroposophy versus mysticism - a comparative exploration of key modern spiritual paths, using the perspectives of Eckhart Tolle, Rudolf Steiner, and Georg Kuhlewind.)

Visit the article through this link:

Kudos to Eckhart Tolle for many good points of spiritual application, but a responsible seeker also needs to move beyond what he has to offer.

Amen Bro, absolutely true.
You folks who are all wrapped up in this Eckhart Tolle heresy are doing just what Paul said in Romans. You are exchanging the truth about God for a lie. Look, don't buy into this junk. Why would you? Because it feels good? It feels right? If satan's main desire is to lead as many as he can straight into hell don't you think he'll do anything he can to make it feel good? That's just how he want's it to feel. He want's you to be comfortable with it. Otherwise, you wouldn't buy it now would you.

DO NOT BUY INTO IT! Put on the full armor of God (Ephesians 6). Eternity is an awful long time to be dealing with for you to just be guessing about which way is the right way. Or even to think that all roads lead to heaven. Jesus said, "BROAD is the road that leads to DISTRUCTION and MANY there are who are on it. NARROW is the way that leads to LIFE and FEW there are who find it." Jesus also said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life, no one comes to the father but through me."

Eternity is an awful long time. Can you really afford to be wrong about what you believe?

The message of the cross is nonsense to those who are being destroyed,but it is the power of God to us who are being saved.The "power of now" is not from Oprah and Eckhart Tolle,but from the cross.The power is the cross and "now" is the word that the church emphasizes on it:The Holy past is present "now" with power.Let Oprah if she dare,to speak on TV about the true "power of now" in the book the coin of the temple.
