Tim Challies has chosen an odd word to describe the movie Divided. Destructive.
It’s a destructive message wrapped in a poorly-made documentary. The church would do well to ignore it.
All this is not to say there is nothing of value in the book. However, it is undeniable to the reader who will look to the Bible, that there is a great deal of error within The Shack. There is too much error.
My suggestion to parents would be to leave this book on the shelf instead of handing it to your teenage girl (and especially your young teenage girl). At the very least, read it yourself and see if your conscience is clear before you hand it to her.
How can the idea of father’s taking back responsibility and families worshiping together be destructive?
