Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.
Charles Spurgeon said “Discernment is not knowing the difference between right and wrong. It is knowing the difference between right and almost right.”
In today’s America, filled with lukewarm churches, people are hungry for something that stirs their emotions. They want to feel passion ignited in their spirit. That’s understandable and I believe it is a desire given to us by God. But, we have to use the highest level of discernment in looking for such a stirring.
The runaway “Christian” bestseller, The Shack, sold over 21 million copies and has now been made into a movie. The movie tells the story of a father going to “God” to learn how to deal with the loss of his daughter. He asks the same question we all ask, how can a good God allow such a horrible thing to happen? Right away, the story hits those emotional cords people are longing for. But, it misrepresents God. God is portrayed as a woman in the story. Yes, Jehovah has male and female attributes as stated in Genesis 1:27 “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” But, God is always referred to in the Bible as a male. He is a King, not a queen, he is our Holy Father and not our mother. Likewise, the Holy Spirit is portrayed as woman in The Shack. In the Bible, Jesus always refers to the God the Holy Spirit as being a “He.”
In today’s day and age, the last thing we need is more confusion being propagated over this issue of gender identity. I mean, if God’s gender is subject to the whims of culture, how can we expect our children to believe that their gender identity and sexuality are determined by their God-given DNA?
Please watch the short video below to see all the ways that The Shack distorts God’s Truth.
The Shack delivers a pot of feel-good emotional scenes, a sprinkling of biblical truths, and just a dash of heresy. That’s not so bad, right? Let me ask you this. What if I made a big pot of chili, using the best ingredients I could find and I only put a teaspoon of rat poisoning in it. Would you eat it?
Well, rest assured, William P. Young, the author of The Shack, doesn’t settle for a teaspoon of heresy in the book he wrote after The Shack. In his novel Eve, he takes great liberties with the creation story.
*Spoiler Alert for any of you intending to read Eve.* In Young’s story, “God” impregnates Adam who carries Eve in his belly. Then, when Eve is born, God breastfeeds her. Eve also gets off the hook for triggering the fall of man in Young’s account.
In our age of the apostate American Church, gender queering, non-binaries, purple penguins, and gay pastors, it’s no wonder that The Shack is the number one “Christian” book on Amazon and we should not be surprised that William P. Young is the number one “Christian” author on Amazon.
“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first.” 2 Thessalonians 2:3
“And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” Luke 21:28
Jesus said, “what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world yet loses his own soul?” Prepper translation: “What good will it do you to survive the coming economic collapse, nuclear war, or even a zombie apocalypse if you don’t know you will go to heaven when you die.” A recent study found that 10 out of 10 people die! On that day we will meet our Maker. It only makes sense to be prepared for that day. Click here to learn more about knowing GOD.
Have a blessed day and happy prepping!
