Mike Bickle, leader of the International House of Prayer (IHOP), has said that 57-year-old former talk show host Oprah Winfrey is “the antichrist.”

Bickle has received criticism and backlash for his statements in a film released by People for the American Way Right Wing Watch which was aired on God TV.
He stated, “I believe that one of the main pastors, as a forerunner to the Harlot movement, it’s not the Harlot movement yet, is Oprah.”
The evangelical pastor continued, “She is winsome, she is kind, she is reasonable, she is utterly deceived, utterly deceived… “
The “Harlot movement” Bickle speaks of includes doing good deeds “for all the wrong reasons.”
He called Winfrey “a classy woman, a cool woman, but has a spirit of deception and she is one of the clear pastors, forerunners to the Harlot movement.”
Can anyone think of anything more ironic than Mike Bickle calling someone else deceived?
