Claims that Paul Young makes in his newest book, Lies We Believe about God
What would you think of a book written by one who claims to be a Christian (p. 57) but . . .
who believes that all people are “fundamentally good” and not sinners? (Chap 2, pp. 34-35);
who claims that not everything is in God’s plan, that he is not in control of everything? (ch 3, p 38-39);
who believes that all humanity was created in God? (ch 3, p 42; ch 27, p. 232);
who claims that every human being is a child of God already saved and reconciled to God? (ch 5, p. 55; ch 13, p. 118; ch 24, p. 204-206);
who redefines God’s nature as a sexual being? (ch 7, p. 73; ch 10, p 93-95);
who claims that the “feminine/masculine nature of God is a circle of relationship” which all humans bear as the image of God? (ch 7, p. 73);
who claims that the “divine nature of God has been placed within all people”? (ch 10, p. 95);
who thinks that the institutions of the church, the government, and marriage are demonic and not originating from God? (ch 11, pp 102-105; ch 12, p. 111-113);
who embraces pacifism and thinks that bearing a weapon in war is murder? (ch 11, p. 104;)
who believes that his passion for universalism originates in God? (ch 14, p. 129);
who believes that the God of Christian faith is a “torture-devising God”? (ch 15, p. 132);
who claims that hell does not separate anyone from God? (ch 15);
who claims that the cross, the death, of Christ was not in God’s plan but was man’s idea? (ch 17, p. 149);
who claims that if God originated the cross then the sacrifice of Christ on the cross was “cosmic abuse”? that God is “cruel” and “monstrous” for creating the cross to “torture human beings” in an “abhorrent manner”? (ch 17, p. 149; ch 19, p. 169-171);
that this God originated evil? Ch 3, p. 38; ch 28, p. 238);
who believes that God will save people after death? (ch 21, p. 186);
who believes that death is not a barrier to make a postmortem choice to accept the love of God and relationship with him? (ch 21, pp 183, 184, 186);
that one can change his/her mind after death? that hell is not a final destiny? who believes that sin does not separate anyone from God? Who defines sin as missing the mark of the “truth of your being”? (ch 27, p. 229);
who asserts that “no one has ever been separated from God”? (ch 27, p. 232);
who found that the God he grew up with “was of little comfort,” was “considered the originator of evil, a distant deity who had a plan that included the torture of a child”? (ch 28, p. 238).
All these and more are the outrageous, even blasphemous claims made by Paul Young in his newest book! May all of God’s people “sit up and take notice”!
