Quotable #4

Sometimes those that are quotable are quotable for the wrong reason. This is one those times. The Globe and Mail recently interviewed William Paul Young - for those that don't know, he wrote "The Shack". Why is this book so appealing to so many? Here is Young's answer:

"Young thinks a big part of the novel's appeal derives from it not being explicitly Christian. There's little or no Scripture in it. The novel, to Young's mind, "has given to people a language to have a conversation about God, evil, suffering and healing. ... a language they didn't have before because all the language before has been very religious, loaded with religious land mines and everything else."

Here's a little "land mine" from God:

"For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths." (2 Timothy 4:3-4)

Love in the Truth.
