“On Mother’s Day, the influence of The Shack was very clear when a congregation worshiped “Mama Ghost” and the “Mother”. A church leader spoke about the “Mother Heart of God” which is also the title of a Paul Young teaching. Reformation indeed.”
(John Lanagan – The Word Like Fire) In an interview with The Shack author Paul Young several years ago, Bethel Redding’s Kris Vallotton asked, “Do you think that this book is really a catalyst for Reformation in the church?”  (27:13 in video)
Paul Young replied, “I think this is part of whatever this is that the Holy Spirit is doing in the world.”  (27:23)
In another interview, given around the time the movie was released, The Shack author said, “I think that’s a move of the Holy Spirit. … I think we’re on the cusp or inside the beginnings of a Reformation.” (emphasis mine)
Great changes have indeed occurred within the visible church due to his books, beginning with The Shack, and now with Eve and Lies We Believe About God. Yet, this is not a Reformation, but a Deformation. This is not a move of the Holy Spirit as the author claims, but an infiltration of unclean spirits.
