Oprah confesses she’s a believer

Superstar talk show host, Oprah Winfrey, has silenced critics, who accused her of promoting non-Christian views on her shows, after publicly declaring that she’s a Christian.

The chat show queen, who now runs her own TV network called OWN, made the declaration during her Oprah’s Lifeclass, held in the US and Canada where, along with her guests, which have included Bishop TD Jakes and  motivational speaker Anthony Robbins, talk about subjects to help people make the most out of their lives.

It was during one Lifeclass broadcast that Oprah shared with the world the details of her faith.  She said, “I am not talking about religion. I am a Christian. That is my faith. I’m not asking you to be a Christian. If you want to be one, I can show you how. But it is not required. I have respect for all faiths. All faiths. But what I’m talking about is not faith or religion. I’m talking about spirituality,”

She also told viewers details of her favourite Bible verse, stating, “My favourite Bible verse — because I am a Christian — is Acts 17:28. It says, ‘In God I live and move and have my being.’  And you want to know why I’m so successful? Because I knew that, at 4 years old, I wouldn’t be who I am today without a spiritual consciousness, without spiritual values, and ultimately without spiritual love.”
