A “Sign” of the Times

So sorry rabbi… Recently a friend of mine gave me a short clip out of a local newspaper to read (see below) and asked my opinion about what it said.  My friend knows that I’m a Christian and where I stand on issues of faith, but I think he was trying to get me to see...

Starting a Grassroots Apologetics Ministry

Starting an Apologetic Ministry I had the privilege of speaking with Chris Arnzen of Iron Sharpens Iron Radio about the birth of New York Apologetics and how to start an apologetics ministry.  We know that "unless the Lord builds it, it's laborers labor in vain", so...

Beware the Hebrew Roots Movement

Hebrew Roots is dangerous! In my recent radio interview with Chris Arnzen on the Iron Sharpens Iron Radio Show, I was asked a question about the Hebrew Roots movement.  Although I've heard about the movement and knew some basic information, I promised to post some...

Evolution: Science Fable, or fact?

This hilarious video on evolution illustrates the absurdity of the Theory of Evolution and the consequences that follow.  On evolution, you have no significant value or meaning.  

Think God started Evolution? Think again!

The idea of theistic evolution has come under fire recently and rightfully so.  Several scientists and theologians have worked together to address the idea in a new book called "Theistic Evolution".  In it, they explain that the storyline of scripture, and scientific...

Gospel contradictions as a source of confidence?

Can multiple eyewitness accounts be the key to getting the truth? As you watch the video below, ask yourself these questions: If many people are eyewitnesses to an event, does that mean that their stories must be identical?  Do their stories have to match verbatim? I...

Let’s scrap the Shack!

Every once in a while a movie will come along that claims to be Christian yet distinctly isn’t.  One such movie is The Shack by William P Young.  Contrary to many well meaning Christians who say it’s “just a story”, the book claims to be religious on it’s back cover and even the author himself says it’s “theology”.  That alone is enough to take a closer look at what it teaches and see if it qualifies as Christian “theology”.  I have personally read the book and was amazed at how wrong it portrayed Christianity.

 

This book contains numerous distortions and heretical teachings, and has the potential to mislead many people because of it’s emotional rhetoric.  This is why we have to Scrap the Shack!  There have been whole books written (Burning Down the Shack) about The Shack because the distortion is so bad.  I’m not going to review the movie because I’m not even going to see the movie and support films like this.  Many good teachers have reviewed the book already and detailed its many problems.  This is why I made an easy list for your reference below.

 

This is not an extensive list of critiques but just a short compilation of ones from several Christian teachers I trust.

 

Here is a list of helpful articles and videos you can read and watch about The Shack:

Let’s practice discernment in a day and age where it is desperately needed!
