  • Seductive Christianity

    Understanding the Times - Jan Markell

    Pastor Larry DeBruyn has written a new book, "UNSHACKLED: Breaking Away from Seductive Spirituality." We revisit the book "The Shack", on the top or near the top of almost all best-seller lists. Why has this book almost become the 67th book of the Bible? What is it's draw? Why is it not in the realm of Christian orthodoxy? Because it reinvents Christianity and the Trinity. Hear sound bytes of Dr. Albert Mohler and Dr. Michael Youssef. One can only conclude that emotions trump doctrine. Is it ok to feel "spiritually healed" as a result of a book that is clearly heretical?  www.guardinghisflock.com
