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,
