Should I listen to haters who hate The Shack?

Amy Spreeman of Berean Research has been labeled a “hater” for daring to expose the heretical theology of The Shack.  In this blog post, Amy explains why she will not sit idly by while Progressive Christians (liberals) reinterpret Scripture to make it fit with what our corrupt culture deems acceptable in this day and age. To Amy, truth matters.  She writes:

Why in the world would Christians ruin a perfectly great movie with their criticisms and negativity? Finally there is a film about forgiveness that helps people think in an out-of-the-box way about God, so why can’t they just leave well enough alone?

Those are the questions you may be asking, and if you follow this link from a well-meaning friend or you saw it posted on The Shack’s fan page on Facebook, welcome!

I am one of the “haters” you’ve heard about, and I want to take a moment and explain why I do what I do.  First, let me assure you that I don’t have fangs or horns. I’m just a woman who loves God and wants to be pleasing to Him.

And I do care very much about taking Him seriously when He commands us to love one another. He wants us to tell the truth always, even if it doesn’t earn us balloons and hearts from people on the Internet. I write because I love His sheep, and do not want them to be deceived or bamboozled in any way by the lies of the enemy of our souls.
