i read the shack. i thought it had very good ideas. i think this guy talking is kind of a quack. i could say more but am kind of tired. i wouldn't attack the shack based on these guys points.
Dan - I strongly oppose The Shack, and not based on this man's points or the one posted before this, but based on my own feelings from reading the book. It is heresy!He denies the importance of authority in our lives, and he states that there are many ways to God, contrary to what the bible says - that Jesus is the way, the truth and the life.
i listened some more and can kind of see both sides. what i really liked about the book was the "loving god" and getting to know him personally. Having a personal relationship. admittedly this is more of a main stream book so was trying to allow all to understand god. But i also see that it could be dangerous to christians because it is not that strong saying that jesus is the way to God. To me it made sense. I would in no way call myself a universalist. but i do believe different religions have some of the same threads adn many religions tear themselves apart fighting over the differences rather than embracing the likes of the different religions.i don't know it is a fine balance to embrace ones religion and berate someone elses. I guess i struggle with these things. i believe in a higher power God but question if my tendency towards christianity is just becasue i grew up that way. Anyway, the shack definetly succeeded in getting people to think about religion.
