THE SHACK IS FILLED WITH NEW AGE - PAGAN THEOLOGY


THE SHACK NEW AGE OCCULT SYMBOLISM, GODDESS PAGAN DECEPTIONS - NOT THE GOD JESUS CHRIST

 

 

"THE SHACK" 

"Not The God Of Our ForeFathers, Nor The Holy Trinity Of Our Bible"

 

 

"I highly recommend my readers view Rector Michael Youssef's Biblical analysis of the book, The Shack.  Which is filled with both Pagan - Esoteric knowledge and symbolism.  Pro New Age * 'Oneness' universalism, The Shack proclaims, no judgement by God, no hell, or justice." -  Synthia Esther

The New Age of Aquarius heralds in the rule and reign of the Goddess, over the God of the Pisces Age we are said (according to Astrology experts such as James R. Lewis), to be exiting.   The Dictionary of the Esoteric, Nevill Drury, Watkins Publishing, page 125. the Goddess is said to carry: "The personification of fertility and the regenerative powers of Nature.  She took many different forms in classical mythology.  For example, she was Cybele in Phrygia, Astarte in Phoenicia, Isis in Egypt.  Demeter in the Greek mystery religion, and Dana among the Celts."  And she is Papa the Goddess replacement for our heavenly Father Jesus Christ, in the counter pagan book, The Shack, by author William P. Young. 

 

According to news reports, in 2007 Young self published the novel under the formed company name Windblown Media, after religious and secular publishers paid little to no interest.  With help from friend Brad Cummings, who spent the maximum credit limit on 12 personal credit cards in order to fund the project, and Wayne Jacobsen, Young's novel went to press.  Cummings now serves as president of Windblown Media.  While The Shack has gone on to claim the title of #1 Paperback trade fiction seller on the New York Times best sellers list since 2008, after sitting dormant for about a year.  The success of The Shack is noted to have come by word of mouth, and a $300 website used for marketing.

 

THE SHACK IS A #1 NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER

 

The Shack has been herald by some as the "Pilgrims Progress" for the twenty-first century generation.  Touted as a holy endowed book filled with insight, being compared to our holy Bible!  Noted evangelical author Chuck Colson wrote an influential review called "Stay Out of The Shack," while R. Albert Mohler, Jr. called The Shack "deeply troubling" on his radio show.   Apologist Norman Geisler gave a stern critique outlining 14 theological problems with the book.  While blogger Tim Challies gave the book a negative review.  But the list of negative critiques doesn't stop there.  Mars Hill Church pastor Mark Driscoll gives a like discerning call, noting The Shacks usage of "graven imagery," and new age, pagan concepts.

 

Yet there are many who praise it's pages.  Such as CBN's 700 Club host Terry Msseuwsen, who stated she loved the book.   Having studied the New Age theosophical, pagan-occult movement for close to three decades.  I am familiar with both blatant and suttle fallacies that serve to counter God's sovereign word.  "...From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked," (Luke 12:48). 

 

PANTHEISM IS DEFINED AS GOD IN EVERYTHING

 

I agree with former New Age turned Christian, Warren Smith, who wrote a review on The Shack titled, "God In Everything."  Smith conveys his knowledge and insight stating, "Much like New Age author James Redfield's book, The Celestine Prophecy The Shack is a fictional vehicle for upending certain religious concepts and presenting contrary spiritual scenarios.  Allegorical novels can be a clever way to present truth.  They can also be used to present things that seem to be true but really are not.  Some books like The Shack do both."

 

Smith goes onto confirm by personal testimony, "I was drawn into the New Age Movement years ago by books and lectures containing parabolic stories that were not unlike The Shack.  They felt spiritually uplifting as they tackled tough issues and talked about God's love and forgiveness.  They seemed to provide me with what I spiritually needed as they gave me much needed hope and promise.  Building on the credibility they achieved through their inspiration and emotive writings.  My New Age authors and teachers would then go on to tell me that "God" was "in" everyone and everything.  I discovered that author William P. Young does exactly the same thing in The Shack."  And Jesus said to them, "Watch out that no one deceives you," (Mark 13:5).
