THE SHACK BIBLE PROJECT : Apprising Ministries

THE SHACK BIBLE PROJECT : Apprising Ministries: "Stonecypher seems to have started SBP in the fall of last year and tells us in About the Shack Bible Project:

When I first picked up THE SHACK, my expectations were not particularly high. In my experience, only the crappiest Christian books make it anywhere near bestseller lists…

I’d spent the last several years studying ancient (pre-Augustinian) Christian theology, with its emphasis on the dynamic relationality of the Triune persons. And in Paul Young’s book, I found that same theology being played out in an imaginative and playful way that spoke deeply to my heart. (Online source)

Here we are being sold a mythology that the doctrine of soteriology (salvation) preached today by those of us in the historic orthodox Christian faith has somehow changed. No John, sorry about that; here’s Jude 3 — contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints.

Can you see; in the first century we already had the faith i.e. the Gospel of repentance and forgiveness of sins in Jesus’ Name, because salvation is by God’s grace alone, through faith alone, in the finished work of Christ alone on the Cross."
