2. “Did you know that from the beginning of time the whole purpose of God was to reproduce Himself?…And when we stand up here, brother, you’re not looking at Morris Cerullo; you’re looking at God. You’re looking at Jesus” (Morris Cerullo, “The End Time Manifestation of the Sons of God,” Morris Cerullo World Evangelism tape 1).
3. Morris Cerullo said “You represent all that God is and all that God has…Jesus was the visible expression of God. Jesus was the Son of the Living God. Now, who are you? Sons of God…everyone say it. What is working inside of us is the manifestation. When you look at me, you are looking at Jesus…To see Jesus was to see God. To see me is to see Jesus. Jesus knew who He was. Don’t you think it is about time we know who we are?” (“Joel’s Army,” Jewel van der Merwe, Discernment Ministries)

THE DIVINE-HUMAN RELATIONSHIP
By Pastor Larry DeBruyn
→ “In The Shack’s relaxed, give-and-take, and schmoozing atmosphere created by Young, the biblical roles between people and God are reversed. Mack becomes quite comfortable initiating, and the goddess quite comfortable responding. The author also injects sensuality into Mack’s relationship with the feminine-divine. On two separate occasions-once with the sensual Sophia (the personification of Papa’s Wisdom), and then later with Sarayu (the Holy Spirit)-he experienced kundalini-like ecstasy.”

RELATIONSHIP ON THE ROCKS!
By Pastor Larry DeBruyn
→ “But to understand the covert message of the book we need to look at the overt picture of God drawn by the author as we ask the question, from whence might Paul the author have derived his image of the goddess? As we proceed, we shall look at pieces of evidence to see if, in goddess religion, there exists any resemblance to “Papa-Elousia,” the first member of the polymorphous trinity in The Shack. We shall attempt to connect the dots to discover where the author’s picture of God might be “sourced.” And then, seeing how The Shack’s composite picture of deity is linked to “goddess-ism,” we will address the potential implications of such theology for those who might seek to cultivate a relationship with the feminine-divine. In developing the implication of goddess-ism’s invasion into the Christian faith, we will employ the Apostle Paul’s paradigmatic description of the fall into apostasy and idolatry in Romans 1:19-32. Generally, the Apostle describes the deconstruction of God to come in three phases.”

THE SHACK, Elousia & the Black Madonna
By Pastor Larry DeBruyn
→ We now proceed to look at the theology of The Shack. We turn to the ideas presented in the book about God. The god of The Shack (In this reference, I refuse to spell God with an upper case “G.”) is an imagined hermaphroditic trinity, consisting of a retreat center owner and hostess who goes by the name of “Elousia,” a carpenter-handyman by the name of “Jesus,” and a gardener who goes by the name of “Sarayu.” In order, we consider the three main characters, and another omniscient and sensual lady who goes by the name of “Sophia,” or Wisdom.”
