The Shack

These resources are for my friends who I have recently had discussions with over the content of The Shack. I hope you find it more helpful in understanding some of my concerns with Young and his presentation of the Trinity.

This clip is Pastor Mark Driscoll:


The quote that I found most challenging was, "A book is written and Christians run to its defense and it is teaching Modalism, goddess worship and graven imageism... and Christians lack the discernment to even see it as a problem, but sell it to the multitudes." This is not what the Trinity is. The correct teaching of the Trinity is one God in three eternal coexistent persons: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

If this video leaves you with further questions I recommend an excellent review by Tim Challies which you can read here.

Greetings Thomas

Indeed Modalism is wrong!

And on the subject of the Trinity,
I recommend this video:
The Human Jesus

Take a couple of hours to watch it; and prayerfully it will aid you to reconsider "The Trinity"

Yours In Messiah

Adam,
Thanks for the comment. But you have an equally heretical view of the Trinity. I am not going to take hours to watch a video which spouts a view of Arianism. Nor would I recommend anyone else.
