The "evangelical" Christian world has gone nuts for this outrageously popular book by author William Young. Suddenly he has become the darling of all kinds of well-known Christians from Michael W. Smith to, of all people - Gloria Gaither. You would think the Gaithers would know better than this!
"THE SHACK" is now been touted as the "best" explanation of the Trinity...some people are even using it in Bible studies!!! Goooooood NIGHT!! What is wrong with this picture? Don't these people know that William Young has denied the subsititutionary atonement of Christ on the Cross (meaning he does not believe in Christ's death on the Cross for our sins and the Blood-Covered washing away of our sins!) This man is NOT A REAL CHRISTIAN! LISTEN HERE IN HIS OWN WORDS!
Yet Christians are quoting this from church pulpits I know of, or group studies in youth groups...and Gloria Gaither has Mark Lowry and others touting this garbage!
I am NOT a fan of this pastor - Mark Driscoll. But it is the best explanation of what "THE SHACK" is about and the heresy in it. Watch it, get your Bible out and you will see he is telling the truth!
