This video is part 1 of a series that introduces my new book, “The Great American Divide, How we got here and what we can do about it” It shows why it is important that we take action now to save or Republic.
I have both read the book and watched the movie “The Shack” by William Young.
For those who wish to say that this movie is HERESY, they are just plain WRONG and here is why. If they would have read the book, they would know that this book was a biography written by William Young of am man named Mackenzie Allen Phillips. It is basically the story of his life, and includes the time when he was unconscious from an auto accident he had. During that time, he had a sort of vision in which he saw God and learned the things that he learned, which are recorded in the biography. In other words this is a TESTIMONY. So how can a testimony be blasphemy?
Now the author, William P. Young freely admits that Mack may not have remembered everything correctly, but it was written to be as accurate as possible of what Mack remembers in his vision. I think that those who look at the movie without reading the book are operating on incomplete information. This is what Mack SAW in his vision. For those of us who read the book, we understood that going in. To me the highlight of the book is chapter 11 entitled “Here come da judge.” It gives a wonderful perspective and a great lesson on how and why we judge other people, and why we are almost always wrong in this judgment.
I was very touched by reading chapter 11 in the book. It was an AHA MOMENT for me, and I was emotional throughout the movie, as I saw this vision come to life. I highly recommend the book, and after reading, it the movie. I can tell you personally that it has changed me….I believe for the better. Here is the trailer:
As we conclude our rebuttal of Eternal Conscious Torment, we find a passage written by the Old Testament prophet Jeremiah which bears strongly on this case. It shows God’s Sovereignty as well as his love and grace.
In this next video of this series of just under 8 minutes, we continue to look at the meanings of the words translated as “eternal,” and “punishment” in our Bibles, and how we have been misled concerning these words. This is eye opening powerful information!
In this short video, I show how we have been misled in the Bible passages which speak of the terms “destroy” “eternal” and “punishment.” If we believe that “God is love,” we need to reconcile these verses with this supreme quality of God, because as the Apostle John indicated in 1 John 4:8,16, love is the essence of God’s being.
I am beginning a series which proves from both the Old and New Testament that God would never send someone to a place of Eternal Torment. If you will stay with me through this series, you will learn a lot even if you disagree with me. So here is my challenge:
Stay with me throughout this series. If you believe that I am wrong, tell me why.
Here is the introduction to the series:
In this 10 minute video session we look at why Gehenna has been mistranslated to “Hell” in most of our English Translations. We will also examine the parable of Lazarus and the rich man, and see why this MUST BE a parable, and is NOT a parable about Hell as many preachers have taught throughout the years.
