400-408Charles Morris, host of Haven Today (, heard weeknights on KKLA at 9:30pm, on Oprah's 10-week internet course going on right now on spirituality she teaches with New Age guru Eckhart Tolle, based on his book The New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose.  According to Tolle, Jesus's teaching of salvation means a transformation of human consciousness, and being born again means reincarnation.  Charles joined Haven in 2000, replacing the retiring Ray Ortlund.  Charles is a former bureau chief for United Press International and a former co-owner of an FM radio station.
• Herescope (3/18), What is Oprah Teaching About Easter?  The "Jesus" of A Course in Miracles teaches the following things about the Easter story:
"This is Palm Sunday, the celebration of victory and the acceptance of the truth. Let us not spend this holy week brooding on the crucifixion of God's Son, but happily in the celebration of his release. For Easter is the sign of peace, not pain. A slain Christ has no meaning." (ACIM Text, p. 425)
• "In you the knowledge lies, ready to be unveiled and free from all the terror that kept it hidden. There is no fear in love. The song of Easter is the glad refrain the Son of God was never crucified. Let us lift up our eyes together, not in fear but in faith." (ACIM Text, p. 428)
• "The crucifixion did not establish the atonement; the resurrection did. Many sincere Christians have misunderstood this." (ACIM Text, p. 36)
• "For the undoing of the crucifixion of God's Son is the work of redemption, in which everyone has a part of equal value." (ACIM Text, p. 209)
• "Sacrifice is a notion totally unknown to God. It arises solely from fear, and frightened people can be vicious." (ACIM Text, p. 37)
• "The journey to the cross should be the last 'useless journey.'" (ACIM Text, p. 52)
• "Do not make the pathetic error of 'clinging to the old rugged cross.'" (ACIM Text, p. 52)
• "The Atonement is the final lesson he [man] need learn, for it teaches him that, never having sinned, he has no need of salvation." (ACIM Text, p. 237) [all emphasis added]
