Billionaire media mogul Oprah Winfrey has launched a new television miniseries that looks at the faith and spirituality of various religions. The seven-part series, titled “Belief,” is showing on seven consecutive nights on Oprah’s channel OWN, from Oct. 18 through Oct. 24.
Though the series has been hailed by critics, earning an enthusiastic write-up in the liberal-leaning The Atlantic, it is not without its detractors.
The Rev. Franklin Graham took exception to Oprah’s seemingly pluralistic view of spirituality, that there are “millions of ways” to get to God.
Taking to his Facebook page on Sunday, Graham wrote, “Oprah Winfrey’s new series ‘Belief’ that premiered last night looks at a number of religions and might make one think there are many paths to God, as Oprah has said in the past.”
“But there are not many paths to God or to eternal life with Him,” Graham continued. “A personal relationship with Almighty God through His Son Jesus Christ is the only thing that can fill the void in the human heart.”
He added, “This is not a matter of opinion — Jesus said, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one comes to Father except through Me.’ One way, one Savior, no exceptions.”
Oprah’s blatant liberalism has made her a target before. With this miniseries, her attempt to seemingly blur the lines between the major religions by highlighting similarities and glossing over differences may be embraced by those with a “squishy” spirituality, but it will be rejected by those who stand firm in their faith.
It will be interesting to see what the ratings ultimately look like after the series has aired, as they will provide something of a glimpse into the health of the faith and spirituality of the American people.
