Mary Kassian on The Shack
Mary Kassian, author of The Feminine Mistake writes about William Young’s portrayal of God in The Shack: “The Shack contains terribly wrong concepts about God. Plain and simple. If you think it doesn’t, then you’re well on your way to accepting the image of the Christa on the cross. In a few years, you’ll be hanging her up in your church. I don’t think I’m overstating the case.”


Venturing Some More
My friend Ryan offers some good thoughts on trusting Christ even through difficult circumstances. “We are depending daily on God’s provision for meeting our needs. Now, I do realize that even Bill Gates relies on God for his very life and comforts each day (whether Bill knows it or not), but being strapped for cash makes that dependence more tangible. But I began to examine how much I was really trusting in God, and found resistance in different areas of my heart.”


Twin Lakes Audio
The audio for Twin Lakes Fellowship is now available online. Speakers include Ligon Duncan, Derek Thomas and Terry Johnson.


Need Calvinized?

    Why Didn’t You Tell Me?

    If you have spent any time at all on YouTube, you have probably seen videos of people hearing for the first time or people seeing color for the first time—videos of people who, through the miracles of modern science, have senses restored that had either been missing altogether or that had become dull through illness…
