It is time to Wake The Church, as it has been infiltrated by new age doctrines and Luciferian philosophies! Luciferian, occultic, new age teachings within the movie The Shack are attempting to alter Scripture and sway believers.
Purportedly, over one thousand ‘faith leaders’ are in support of the blasphemous film, which is based on the book by the same name and claims that God is only about love not justice, holiness or wrath.
The resource site for “The Shack” provides both written and recorded endorsements from many well-known entities, including leaders and representatives of The Salvation Army, Young Life, Family Christian Stores, The Christian Post, K-LOVE, CBN and TBN, to celebrities such as Michael W. Smith, Joel Houston of Hillsong United, Gospel artist Tasha Cobbs and Chip and Joanna Gaines of HGTV’s “Fixer Upper” show.
Numerous pastors and church leaders have lent their endorsement as well, including Kent Munsey of Hillsong Chicago, Samuel Rodriguez of New Season Church in Sacramento, California and leader of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, Kenneth Ulmer of Faithful Central Bible Church in Los Angeles, and Steve Munsey of Family Christian Center in Munster, Indiana.
“I would encourage all pastors to make sure that their congregation is able to see this movie,” said Charles Blake, the current presiding bishop of the Church of God in Christ (COGIC).
“Honestly, I was apprehensive about seeing it because I loved the book so much. What a wonderful surprise to have my expectations and hope exceeded. I love the message, the very believable message, that God is always with us doing more than we could ask or imagine,” stated Terry Meeuwsen, co-host of Pat Robertson’s “700 Club.”
“It’s not afraid to go into the real issues of life, which is pain, which is dealing with hurt and forgiveness, and what love is,” also remarked Houston of Hillsong, whose music is featured in the film. “And I think those are the things that actually connect with all humanity.”
Samuel Rodriguez said that the film’s portrayal of the Father as a woman—who later turns into a man since the lead character could not handle seeing God as male at first due to a poor relationship with his late father—is God showing Himself to be both motherly and fatherly in His character, depending on the human need.
“[It’s] God basically saying, ‘I’ll take whatever road is necessary at [the] corresponding chapter in your life. So, in this chapter you may need more of a maternal sort of comfort and support and nurturing. And then, in this journey of your life, you need more of a male, masculine friend who accompanies you and who pushes you a little bit harder toward the journey. I am all of that. Don’t limit me. … I am what you need me to be in corresponding chapters of your life,’” he stated.
In addition to urging viewers to forgive the perpetrator, God and oneself, a common takeaway from reviewers is that the film teaches that mankind is not to judge anyone—even those who commit gross evil. In one scene, the lead character is asked to choose which one of his children will go to Hell and which to Heaven, in order to make the point that man is not to judge.
“Every Christian should see this movie to remind us that we don’t get to be the judge unless we want to be judged. All us have [things in the] closet we don’t want exposed,” said Sharon Houston, Garden of Hope, Inc. of Virginia Beach.
“The movie was a powerful message about God’s love for all of us. He doesn’t want us to be judgmental toward others,” also noted Lynn Davis of Bear Valley Church in Denver, Colorado.
“Makes me re-think again all my preconceived notions and religious beliefs of who my God is! Wow—judgment issues—a lot to change in my own views,” said Cheryl Sharp of Monte Vista Christian School in San Francisco, California.
“Thank you, Lord, for not judging us but loving us,” commented Tricia Tisdale of Greater Grace Worship Center in Sacramento, California.
The popular radio outlets Air1 and K-LOVE, along with the prominent news outlet Christian Post, have been among those marketing the “The Shack,” with Air1 and K-LOVE, both owned by the Educational Media Foundation, conducted ticket giveaways and aired advertisements for the film. The Christian Post likewise ran video ads for the movie on its site last week.
“I had some problems with the theology of this story, but I am remembering that it’s just a work of fiction and perhaps it will be helpful to those that are hurting and have unforgiveness. So because of this, I’m saying I give it a thumbs up,” said Trish Fuhlendorf of K-LOVE in Denver, Colorado.
“There were moments of great humor and plenty (so many) tear-jerking moments. I fought back tears at least four times. God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit were so cleverly depicted. LOVE the film!” also remarked Kevin Porter of the The Christian Post. – Read More
The Luciferian Takeover
The assault on Christianity is further expanded upon in this film and is exceedingly evident given the plot; the question is, where in the world does this ideology originate from?
There are several key points throughout the book such as God doesn’t punish us for our un-repented sins, and there is no hell, the Holy Spirit is called by the Hindu name Sarayu; which can help us pinpoint the origin of this blasphemous ideology. But again where does this ideology originate from?
Subtly but evidently in the background of the day to day life, a movement has grown exponentially, and this movement seeks to overthrow Christianity. The philosophy and doctrine within this movie aligns itself directly with the ideology of Helena Blavatsky, who happens to be one of the founders of the New Age Movement and was an avid believer in the doctrines of Lucifer.
The following is a quote from Blavatsky;
If we do not admit of any punishment outside of this earth, it is because the only state the Spiritual Self knows of, hereafter, is that of unalloyed bliss. …crimes and sins committed on a plane of objectivity and in a world of matter, cannot receive punishment in a world of pure subjectivity. We believe in no hell or paradise as localities; in no objective hell-fires and worms that never die, nor in any Jerusalem with streets paved with sapphires and diamonds. What we believe in is a post-mortem state or mental condition, such as we are in during a vivid dream. We believe in an immutable law of absolute Love, Justice, and Mercy.
— The Key to Theosophy, p. 138
Sound familiar? If not see the full plot of the movie, here.
Furthermore, expanding upon the doctrines of occultists here is yet another reference from Helena Blavatsky;
The occultists say the hell means simply the human body, and there is no other hell than earth. The fact that Christ and so many other solar gods – Hercules, etc. – descended into hell is an allegory pointing to just such imprisonment in the physical body. … St. John’s Revelation is not a Christian work, but is simply the Christianized form of prophecy, which is universal – and I can assure you it is one of the most occult things for anyone who understands it. … The “Dragon” symbolized the sons of wisdom incarnating in humanity, and thus hurled into the Hell of matter, which is our bodies, because there is no Hell outside of our own dear persons here. It is humanity, and on this earth, that is Hell, and nowhere else.
— The Secret Doctrine Dialogues, p. 483, 491
So why in the world is a supposedly Christian movie supporting Luciferian Occultist ideology? Because the occultists, spiritualists, and Hindu’s are attempting a full-blown subversion of the Church. So many Christians are fascinated with the New Age’s definition of Love, that in their eyes they misinterpret scripture, but it’s not entirely their fault.
