Since the movie “The Shack” has now come out on DVD and is making the rounds again, I’m circulating a new post with updated information.
I had received The Shack as a gift for Christmas several years ago. When I started to read it, it was indeed a very emotionally moving and interesting story. However there were some things that did not sit quite right as I was reading. While I appreciate the heart of the person who gave the gift, there are several false doctrines of universalism and “new age” hidden throughout the book.
All in all, “The Shack” presents us with another Jesus, another Spirit, and another gospel. (2 Cor 11:4)
Quoting one reviewer: “This is not a Christian film: It’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing, wrapped in wholesome family values and with a high regard for marriage and parenthood.”
Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. – 1 Thess 5:21
And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. – Eph 5:11

When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from it; if he do not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul- Ezekiel 33:8-9
