There is way more to God than you are aware of at the present time and you should search and keep searching until you find it.
Yeah he is sucking at the soured breast of curdled religion ...

I give scripture very often in my posts and it is ignored by those who find it inconvenient to their apostasy.

It is the word of God that I present, and not the false teachings of false teachers. Your rejection of the principle of Eph. 4:11-16 is your rejection of the revealed word of God. Dispite what you may think.

So, straight from the horses mouth (yours).....because I don't put stock in what other human beings/ "men" teach & preach but get my teaching straight from God, I am learning "false" teaching from a "false" teacher?
You mean when Jesus said we had "One Teacher"...he wasn't speaking about God? Silly me....all this time I thought Jesus was speaking about God.

God is not wrath period , none of your threatening scriptures say God is wrath.

The fallen nature of man is the wrath of God . Read Genesis 3

The Shacks 'Jesus'
''God ,who is the ground of all being, dwells in,around, and through all things.''
Wow this sounds remarkably like ...

Act 17:24-28
24God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;
25Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;
26And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;
27That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:
28For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.




and like ...


Col 1:16
For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:


and ...


Col 1:19
For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;

This is pantheism and is unscriptural.
Sounds pretty scriptural to me ...

The Shacks 'Jesus'

Those who love me come from every system that exists. They were Buddhists or Mormons, Baptists or Muslims...I have no desire to make them Christian, but I do want to join them in their transformation into sons and daughters of my papa, into my brothers and sisters.


A Christian is someone who believes in Christ for salvation. But the 'Jesus 'presented in the Shack doesn't recognize that.
Well every Christian was something other than Christian before they became Christian. And i question whether or not Christianity today especially is what those who followed Christ in the first 3 centuries were all about to begin with.

1Cr 13:2
If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.

It seems obvious that God would rather you have love and no faith than faith and no love ... What is better an Hindu who loves his neighbor as himself or a Christian who puts others under condemnation out of hate?

Quote:
The Shack presents a 'female God'. Blasphemous. God is presented in the Bible as Father.
Well the Shekhinah presence is a feminine aspect, as the Hebrew word Shekhinah is a feminine noun ... And the Shekhina presence is the very same holy spirit ... What is interesting is this understanding brings into view the fact that the trinity actually represents father mother and son ... The family of deity.


Quote:
The Shack: ''You don't need me at all to create your list of good and evil.''

Mocking God!!!
Rom 2:13-16
13For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God's sight, but it is those who obey the law who will be declared righteous. 14(Indeed, when Gentiles, who do not have the law, do by nature things required by the law, they are a law for themselves, even though they do not have the law, 15since they show that the requirements of the law are written on their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness, and their thoughts now accusing, now even defending them.) 16This will take place on the day when God will judge men's secrets through Jesus Christ, as my gospel declares.

Man has a conscience, and it was only necessary for God to give the law because mankind was not willing to live by that Conscience. The only reason God gave the law is to prove to man they couldn't accomplish living up to it in the first place. How is the above quote mocking God exactly?

Quote:
And you think the entire book has to be read to discern its true purpose?
It certainly wouldn't make it harder to understand its purpose.

Quote:
Are you willing to overlook the blasphemous distortions of God presented in this book because you get some feel good experience from reading it? And that anyone would even have a feel good experience from a book that mocks God, speaks volumes.
Distortions according to your interpretation ...

Quote:
This book is Satanic to the core.
It could be said you interpretation of scripture and your doctrines of eternal torture are far more satanic in the long run.

If Mike spent as much time looking into the Christians of the 1st century and what they actually believed and were taught by the Apostles....Mike would be shocked and then very enlightened. Christianity today doesn't even come close to resembling what Christ taught them back in their day. But Mike thinks the bible we have today (the bible rewritten and edited by the Church of Rome) is Gods inerrant and infallible word...there couldn't possibly be any mistranslations or such.

Yeah well, there is a world of difference between true spiritual Christianity and the Christianity that many practice which it seems they must have gotten of the back of a crackerjack box.
