The Shack: Its Dangerous Theology and Error

Author: Mike Wright

Ever since I first read The Shack, I had deep concerns about its content. I began to have a check in my spirit almost from the first chapter, and that continued right through to the end of the book. I believe there to be grievous errors in the theology presented in this book, errors that are presented with a subtlety that allows them to creep past the unsuspecting mind unnoticed. This, I fear, is what has happened, and is happening, to many believers.

This documentary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=epEQv6-5u0U (or click Read more below) examines the issues of The Shack thoroughly, and has come to similar conclusions that I reached, such as:

  1. It presents blasphemous representations of God.
  2. It presents a false view of the Trinity, including that the Father became incarnate and was crucified with the Son.

  3. It denies the substitutionary atonement of Jesus Christ's death on the cross.

  4. It suggests that all human beings are saved, whether they repent of their sins and accept Christ or not.

  5. It teaches that hell is "restorative", a type of purgatory.

Well worth watching. Don't believe what is written in The Shack; don't believe anyone who endorses the book, no matter their "status" within the body of Christ; don't believe me or the content of this video; believe the Word of God that is presented as part of this video. Trust that God, by His Holy Spirit, will guide you into all truth.

When you've finished watching this video, listen to this too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PSO65uhoXtU, and this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CzVO3kBhr0E.

Update – Read this too: http://www.desiringgod.org/articles/what-does-the-shack-say-about-your-pain, and this: https://www.wretchedradio.com/a-leaky-shack.

Another update – Paul Young has just released another book, "Lies We Believe About God", which is critiqued in this very good article: http://creation.com/paul-young-lies-review.

Mike Wright's "Statement of Faith"

Author: Anonym

What do I believe? Can it be written down in any form that would do justice to my faith in the Lord Jesus Christ? Indeed, probably the only statement of faith that we as Christians should make is in the Lordship of Jesus Christ! As Paul said in 1 Corinthians 2:2, "For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified." Still, people want to know "where I stand" when it comes to certain "beliefs" or "doctrines", and in order to satisfy this fetish for knowledge I have listed (alphabetically, by web site) the Statements of Faith from a number of my favourite web sites—the ones I would most readily recommend to seekers of truth, beyond sending them to their Bible! I have not edited the content of these documents, but have added my own comments (in green) and/or struck out items that I do not agree with in some way, shape or form. Hopefully, if you read through all of these, you will understand the basis of my faith. Please note that I do not endorse or agree with and subscribe to everything written on these sites—they all have areas where they promote what I believe to be the doctrines of men or angels above the Word of God, which is why we need to be constantly vigilant when referring to any resource outside of the Bible (Acts 17:11).
