Oprah-Linked Spiritual Healer “John Of God” Is Prison-Bound For Sick Crimes

(Tea Party 247) – Why is it that behind every wealthy and powerful leftist, there’s a sex criminal?

Has anyone else noticed this?

A spiritual healer in Brazil who goes by the name João de Deus, or John of God and who has been featured in an Oprah special has been sentenced to prison.

On Thursday, a judge in Goias handed down a 19-year sentence for the numerous incidents of sexual abuse that had been levied against him.

This “John of God” was convicted of raping four different women, according to a statement from the court.

The 77-year-old’s lawyers said that they plan to appeal the decision in a statement.

ABC reports:

João Teixeira de Faria drew people from all over the world to his small city two hours west of capital, Brasilia, with promises he could treat everything from depression to cancer, and attended to as many as 10,000 patients per week. Hundreds of women, including his daughter, alleged he regularly engaged in abuse ranging from groping to rape.

Is there anyone sicker than someone who deceives people into believe he has true healing powers from the Creator of the universe and uses that power to commit the most despicable crime you can commit against someone else short of murder?

Well, among his huge following was none other than Oprah Winfrey, the American talk show icon who has gotten decidedly left-leaning over the years.

Even Oprah Winfrey visited João de Deus in 2012 to interview him for her talk show, and called him “inspiring.” After the accusations surfaced, Winfrey issued a statement saying she sympathized with the alleged victims and hoped they receive justice.

João de Deus is facing additional cases related to 10 sex crimes, according to the court’s statement.

Oprah has long been a hugely influential teacher of the new age, an occultish teaching that leads many into cult-like following of figures like this rapist.

CBN writes of a documentary that exposes the occult-side of Oprah’s teachings:

In Don’t Drink the Kool-Aid, Steele offers a quick overview of some of the pervading philosophies presented by Oprah to her audience. These supposedly “new” ideas are really just old schemes of the devil wrapped in pretty packaging. New agers recycle the same idea that every man is a son of God, man can be like God, and that we are the source of our salvation.

Most recently, and arguably most lethal, Oprah launched a virtual classroom to promote and encourage Tolle’s A New Earth, which is a selection for her book club. Ten million-plus students met online once a week for 10 lessons earlier this year and became “awakened,” or mind trained by Tolle and Oprah. This interactive teaching is still available on Oprah.com.

Basically, Tolle teaches:

  • A glimpse will initiate awakening, which is irreversible.
  • We are the light.
  • Sin means missing the point of exit.
  • We have a choice: evolve or die.
  • Heaven is not a location but an inner realm of consciousness.
  • The source of all energy is within you.
  • Jesus is an archetypal figure. He is every man and woman.

Of Tolle’s A New Earth, Oprah says, “Being able to share this material with you is a gift and a part of the fulfillment of my life’s purpose.”

  1. Everything Orca Winfrey does is self-promoting, self-congratulatory, narcissistic, and always looking for any way to make a buck and not caring who she hurts in the process. She’s always ready to play the racist card if any one disagrees with her or questions her motives and is more than ready to display her fake sympathy for anyone in distress. She’s another moron like Alyssa Milano who is now calling everyone to join her in chanting some idiotic mantra that will change the political environment in Washington D.C., ie, impeach president Trump. Orca and Milano and others like them really believe that they are the voices of this generation.

  2. Oprah likely sold her soul for the almighty dollar…now she is leading the blind down her path right into the pit of darkness.

    • Phillip Lake there is no room for using the letter or the word here. Her skin color has nothing to do with anything. You bringing it up just shows your ignorance.

  3. John of God Oprah is just as sick as he is if she is so religious how could you associate with someone that calls himself John of God there’s one God 💥

  4. stanley headrick pat eppler thank you for not condeming or judging oprah,she needs jesus like all of us do,and praying that she will someday see the light,you sound like a true christian because that is what we all should do for her.

    • Let him who is without sin cast the first stone. Nobody’s perfect except Jesus. That’s why God gave his only begotten son for the forgiveness of sins.

  5. stan headrick to pat eppler GOD bless you pat for not judging or condeming oprah ,you chose to pray for her, that she will someway be enlightened to JESUS our true LORD,you sound like a true christain.

  6. Everyone is susceptible to deception from satan. Sad for Oprah as if I am not mistaken, she was raised up in a bible believing faith

  7. When I grew up so long ago, I used to hear messages of “TV is a sin” which irritated me as a young child. Now I realize that there is much evil on TV, but our responsibility to choose media that includes ethical programming instead of money-making objectives. Such lessons are not taught any longer in churches, schools, even homes as in the 1940’s & 1950’s.

  8. People such as that will always leave clues as to their intentions. People should trust in God alone and be observant so they are not brainwashed or fooled by the charlatans. One does not necessarily need a spiritual healer. Jesus said, “Physician, heal thyself”.

  9. The true God of the universe God the father,God the son, God the Holy Spirit !!! God the Son. JESUS,born of Virgin Mary, lived a perfect life, died a horrible death on a cross, stayed in a grave three days, arose & went back to Heaven seated at the right hand of the father interceding and forgiving our sins! There is only one way to Heaven thru the shed blood of JESUS,!!!❤️💘

  10. There is no substitute for the individual, personal study of the written Word of God. I am not speaking of reading or of somebody else’s devotionals, I am speaking of STUDY of the written Word. You can listen to a pastor, but you had better study for yourself in order to know without a doubt whether or not the Pastor is teaching correctly and whether or not your belief system is correct. t\There are two with whom I study–one has a church and one is an author and both are on the same page so to speak. It wouldn’t hurt Christians one bit to find out for instance, why God created humanity in the first place, (Genesis 1:26; Revelation 19:6-9) and how we are to get from point A to point B. Who is running the race of faith–(“they” are inside every individual Christian). Get started if you haven’t already done so; time is short.

    • That is false. No one that knows the word will be deceived. The problem is all the so called reverands, priests and preachers who change the word. They should read Rev. 22.18 as should you.

  11. JESUS SAID, “I am The Way, The Truth, AND THE LIGHT. No MAN (person) cometh to The Father
    EXCEPT Through me.. New Testiment..BIBLE

  12. Why anyone would watch listen or support or seek advice from OPRAH is beyond any logical thinking, Here is a woman that does not know what she believes yet she continues to hand out her useless advice to others.

  13. Okra is the last person I would go to for advice or comfort! Liberals with their money can buy anything except God’s promise. She and all of the other Hollywood types need to stick with acting and not handing out advice or political messages. Just saying, Liberalism is a mental disorder.

    • Yes! I Agree~ Steve ThankYou~ God Bless you and Yours, Merry Christmas* Stephan’chucknors’Stenzel Midwest U.S. Cowboy*of Southern Minnesota/Minn Lake and Sometimes TEXAS*too Adios*

  14. Oprah has left the realm of Christian teachings. Obviously, she is searching for real meaning, but she is missing the mark. She is trying to fill that hole in her soul that only Jesus Christ can fill. I’m praying she some day finds what she is looking for. JESUS CHRIST, THE LORD!

    • Wow, Oprah is only human and all you so called christians love to judge and condemn! Why are you blaming Oprah ? She didn’t rape or abuse any one!! Her only mistake was trusting the character of a man who abused his own power!

  15. People are so simple minded when it comes from these “celebrities “ any rational person should know that in the last days there will be all types of anti- Christ’s and is exactly what these frauds are!
