“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” 2 Timothy 4:3,4 (KJV)
Last week, we published an article warning Christians about the false New Age gospel taught in ‘The Shack’ movie. Many received that warning in the spirit that it was intended, while others wrote in to say things like “it’s not teaching the Bible, it’s just a movie!”.
Well, as it turns out, liberal Laodicean churches across america are using ‘The Shack’ to teach the Bible to people – albeit a false gospel, with a false Jesus, and a message of New Age Universal salvation.
“Based on the movie in theaters March 3, The Shack, this 5-week campaign and study are designed to help people experience the life-changing goodness, grace, and presence of God. Using engaging scenes from the film, paired with relevant Scripture, these resources are an invitation to experience the ultimate truth about love, loss, and forgiveness.” source
Joel Houston, from the ultra-liberal Hillsong United church, says “Perhaps the most profound description of who God is, how He works and what faith and life is all about.”
Really, Joel, I thought the Bible gave us the “most profound description of who God is”, no?
“The most accurate biblical representation of the deity of God I’ve ever seen…this movie will preach all day long! Hollywood finally got it right.”- Bishop IV Hilliard, Houston TX
“Wow is a gross understatement! This film does the best teaching and guiding on a personal journey to forgiveness, faith and forward-driven healing that I have ever experienced. This film should be a requirement for citizenship on earth!”- Marlow Saunders, Valencia Christian Center, Sr. Pastor
“I can’t wait to unleash this thing.”- Pastor Ray Johnston, Bayside Church
“This film is a very worthy attempt at exploring the most mysterious truths in a way which illuminates both issues (forgiveness and the Trinity) and many other aspects of the human experience.”- Patrick Langrell, Director of Young Adult Outreach, Archdiocese of LA
Now, we have just shown you the official Laodicean small group “bible” study guide, and given you half a dozen quotes from religious leaders telling you that ‘The Shack’ is teaching people their version of the Bible.
‘The Shack’ is not merely a book or a movie, it is nothing less than an all-out assault on Biblical Christianity to get you to believe in the “another Jesus” Paul warned about so many years ago. It teaches a false New Age gospel, and presents you with an LGBTQP version of the Trinity. It is not the Bible, does not represent the Bible, and does not present the viewer with God’s plan of salvation found in the Bible.
