Ignore the title of Rodney’s post, as I sometimes, maybe, include jabs at him in my posts, but it is because we can respect each the other and his opinions that we can do this. That, and I am not going to drive to Texas in order to instruct him in the proper ways of Truth, Justice, and Liberalism.
But, Rodney makes a point…
That’s right, the Bible is being re-paraphrased for fans of the Shack by someone who sees similarities between the Shack’s theology and patristic thought. Personally I do not see it. I am afraid that Young’s deity is right in line with the god of Marcionism, where YHWH’s just and righteous nature is replaced with the liberal Eurocentric god of mainline Protestantism,
I might disagree with his generalization of ‘mainline Protestantism’ but Rodney has a hammer and a nail and knows where the head of said nail is.
