The Shack On Issues Etc

This week Pastor Todd Wilken took some time to review much discussed book The Shack. He plays the sounds clips from the audio version of the book and comments.  I’ve provided the audio below.  It’s definitely worth listening to Pastor Wilken’s excellent comments.

While Pastor Wilken mentions a few good aspects of the book he finds a four fold problem with The Shack.

1. A distorted view of the Trinity along the lines of patripassianism.

2. Problem of authority and revelation of the Bible.  The Bible is essentially put on par with natural revelation.

3. An author trick.  The main character presents a biblical truth and starts to get corrected by one of the god characters.  The problem is the correction is never actually given.

4. We actually happened at the cross.  Did Jesus accomplish anything or was He just *showing* us something?

For what it’s worth…
