Universalism is a religious belief system that says that at some point God will show grace and mercy to those in Hell by offering them a second chance to repent. This is what Universalism teaches and it’s false. It is appointed to man ONCE to die, THEN the judgment. There are no second chances in Hell. The second argument that is typified in heresy teachings is the common suggestion that God is no longer or will no longer judge men today, for he judged the world at the cross. Wrong again. In the book of Jude, verse 5-6, we are reminded by the words of the same writer of God’s judgment, “I will therefore put you in remembrance, though you ONCE KNEW THIS, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them who believed not. And the Angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the Judgment of the Great Day.” Also read Revelation 20:10.
My point is this, regardless what book, or movie presents itself as “truth” today, know that God does demand the sinner to repent, or face judgment sooner or later. The cross was in fact Christ dying for mankind, but it did not solve the matter of unrepentant sin. If the sinner does not repent and come to Christ and then eventually dies, that man or woman goes to a place called Hell. I don’t care what William P. Young (The Shack) says. Nor do I care that over 1,000 seeker sensitive pastors endorsed his movie. Nor do I care that TBN, CBN and a long list of popular Pentecostals and Charismatics have weighed in on their support. I care about one thing – scripture. If scripture rejects it, then whatever the message is is false. End of story.
The reason why I even chimed in on this chatter over The Shack is very simple, if Christians are that gullible to be taken in by a feel good, love fest film which promotes the idea of no Hell (and the movie does), or strongly asserts the idea which says that God does not judge people today (and it does), for Christians to buy into that tells me more about the spiritual state of the modern church today than ever before, and why we are nearing the time of the coming deception. So no, spare me your ignorance on why anyone should go see this movie as anything but a demonic attempt to indoctrinate the church masses into believing a lie, and recognize that if a person who is born again can be turned so easily by a modern attempt to seduce us with cinema-heresy such as The Shack, then you my friend have succumbed to the greatest seduction known to man, and you’ve stumbled for a lie.
