The Shack

Dear Readers,

We live in the day and age of the apostasy and Christians need to be alert to their surroundings.  I would implore you to watch the above video link concerning the new best selling book, The Shack.  My sister phoned me to warn me of this false publication that holds to heretical doctrine concerning God.  She started reading the book and stopped when God the Father was portrayed in female form.  She was wise to spot the heresy that she knew was a calculated lie and told others. This resulting in her defense of the faith, despite criticism.

Throughout Scripture, people are warned not to worship false deities, including those of feminine impressions.  Mary, the false goddess of the Catholic Church, is called the “queen of heaven” as she is worshipped as deity.  She is viewed as God Almighty.  In Jeremiah, God forbids the worship of the “queen of heaven” who is Satan, portrayed in female gender. Everywhere in Scripture God is masculine in both the Old and New Testament. The Greek and Hebrew, which are the original languages of the Bible, verify this.  Angels are always text in the masculine as well.  Woman did not appear on the scene until the creation of the earth—countless eons following the creation of angels.  She was cast in the image of man. Nothing has been created in her image in the spiritual realm.  Sinful man likes to worship and adore the feminine figure, which is why people enjoy imagining gods and angels in such likeness.

We cannot add or subtract from the Bible.  We cannot add or subtract God’s words, as there are grievous consequences.  When Christ was on the earth, He did not turn into every form to please every personality and He performed the Father’s will. God never changes—His agendas and statements never change. He is the same yesterday, today and forever.

You need to ask, where in the inerrant Word did God make the statements and perform the actions that are credited to Him in The Shack?   If a person cannot accept the Biblical Trinity, then something is very wrong with their heart.

Dr. Harry Ironside, pastor of Chicago’s MoodyMemorialChurch from 1930-1948, emphasized the fact that truth mixed with error results in “all error.”  “A little leaven, leaveneth the whole lump.”

In God who never lies nor His Word,

  1. Thank you for speaking out on this. It is as if a blindness has fallen on so many. if you are interested, here is a link to an article comparing the redesigned “trinity” of The Shack with the Alcoholics Anonymous “custom-made” higher power. Thank you.

  2. Hi john,

    I trust you are being blessed today as I have been blessed by your response. Praise God, you refuse to follow in the path of blindness! It certainly seems the church is mostly apostate today. Thanks for informing me of the excellent article and I forwarded it to friends. You wisely discern The Shack is not Scripture and that we must dwell on those things that are true, not on the imagined.

    I noticed in the article this excerpt from The Shack:
    “Hasn’t it always been a problem to embrace me as your father? And after what you’ve been through, you couldn’t very well handle a father right now, could you?”[9]” john, we both know God the Father never stated this in Scripture or anything near. He rules the universe and does not play silly word question games—excusing why He is not accepted. This statement is a lie of Satan who is the father of all lies. Believers cannot accept any statement of God unless verified with Scripture. When we accept that which is not Biblically verified, we slap God in the face and give Satan a hug. I wish believers would see this as you do. May all believers come to obtain Biblical discernment: Colossians 1:9-12. This is my prayer and I bet it is yours as well.

    In the book of Revelation, John fell before God as a dead man in all fear and trembling as believers are commanded to do: Philippians 2:12 and 1 Chronicles 16:30. You cannot locate such activity occurring in The Shack. Jeremiah stood alone against the religious leaders and people of his day. He being the only one who would not style with society and approve of contemporary ways. He would never have pastored a community church, as the church is not one with the community; 2 Corinthians chapter 6. He preached separation from all sin and sinners, though he preached to save the sinner. 2 Peter 3:2 admonishes us to study the prophets.
    You certainly seem to own the heart of Jeremiah.

    Your article link mentions Oprah who is a demonic woman who teaches the New Age religion. Do we not find this interesting in regards of her approval of The Shack? She would never approve of falling on her face in all fear and trembling before a God who hates all sin and demonic beliefs. She would never willingly fall on her face before Christ who hates all sin including fornication which she is involved in. She has no problem having sex outside of marriage and approving of every vile sexual way including homosexuality. Her filthy record plays on and on. Christians are to come out from amongst such people and be separate. However, never forgetting to pray for all the lost ones in the world. Oprah does need the Christ of the Bible.

    Take care my dear brother in His wisdom and love. And thanks again for your kindness and discernment!
