After a lengthy period of waiting, I finally found time through the good graces of another brother to read, The Shack.
It was a discipline, having read reviews, pro and con, to attempt an unbiased read. Most will probably suggest my failure.
First blush, I loved it!
It was a fictional dream. Job: 33:15-18 God, forbid, the ministry of dreams!
Can God do this?
Does God do this?
Is this the “norm”?
As to the latter, NO!
As to the former, I don’t know.
God can do whatever He likes! But, and If He does, my suspicion is, he will prompt the recipient in the manner in which he provoked The Apostle Paul ( 2 Cor. 12:7-10.) .
As it pertains to each and every attempt of a believing author, I am driven by Isaiah’s admonition: “…Isaiah 8:20 and Matt. 22:29.
Ain't that a beach!
We are left with propositions!
Feelings are so much more substantial, whatever a "...feeling..." is?
Where does God get off with leaving us with propositions, when Moses and the others had visions, dreams, visual manifestations, etc.?
Somehow, I get the idea the "bar' has been raised in terms of The New Covenant?
Does this suggest God intends to treat me as an Adult?
