WHO IS GOD, ANYWAY? December 1, 2009

I received a copy of “The Shack”. I was told it is a good Christian novel. Since it had been so long since I’d read a novel, I thought I’d give it a shot. Ever since, I’ve wanted to write my thoughts on this controversial book. But I could never make up my mind if I should be diplomatic or go with my gut and spill political incorrectness!

If you read the book and liked it, please do not be offended by this post. Rather, I encourage you to return to your foundation (if you are a Christian) of why you believe what you do about God. If “The Shack” were truly SOLELY a fiction novel, fine. Unfortunately, many are using it as an allegory of the Trinity and as a source for theological explanation of God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.

Who is God, anyway? What does the BIBLE say?
Or do I just believe whatever makes me feel better?

Here’s a very short video from one of my theological heroes of today. He doesn’t mention every point needing addressing (such as God becoming human through Jesus (not in the Biblical sense); Jesus using all religions to lead people to the Father, etc.), but definitely the most important.

OK. I think it’s time to start writing my story. My husband has been telling me to do this for years. But you know, thoughts of insecurity, inability, and “there are enough stories out there already” can keep you from doing something that could help people. Besides the thought that it’s probably not the most exciting thing to read up until the great green gobs of greasy, grimy gopher guts. Where I am today is a miracle – not that I own two cars and a yellow house with a white picket fence – but that I am free from all the gunk the world, environment, and experiences bound me with. I honestly couldn’t even begin to describe adequately in a known language the soul operations I’ve had – without anesthesia, mind you. But, I’ll do my best to tell as much as needed without boring you to tears.

And maybe my thoughts will inspire yours to seek freedom in any area of life where you may need it.
