"She puts the 'cult' in pop culture"

Many of us are very familiar with that great line in the What If His People Prayed song by Casting Crowns which says, "What if the family turned Jesus - stopped asking Oprah what to do?"

Mark Driscoll's latest blog is a really good quick read about Oprah.

Here is his conclusion:

"Oprah seems to be a contradiction perfectly suited for a confused world of pluralism. She is a billionaire who speaks passionately about the pain and suffering in the world from the comforts of her sheltered life. She is among the most beloved icons of mothers yet she has never had any children. Many viewers tune in to learn how to improve their marriages yet she has never been married. And, she speaks of spiritual matters often and has an entire segment of her show titled "spirit," which makes you wonder which spirit she’s referring to."
