We are doing a series this week on the newest book Oh come by William Paul Young entitled Lies We believe about God William how young is the author of the book l. movie entitled the Shack and Last Week Jim Osmond and I did a series of interviews together on the movie the Shack we went to watch it and we gust a lot of the theological issues with end that movie and I hope that that was helpful for you just kind of equip you in engaging your friends and family members who undoubtedly have been some of whom had been to see this movie it has the shack has been publishing juggernaut it has sold it well in excess well northwards of twenty million copies and has been translated into a number of different Langley ages I think I saw somewhere twenty or thirty different languages maybe more than that so it is it is it's truly a publishing juggernaut in his a sad common very own how biblically illiterate so many professing Christians are it's been endorsed by a number of people and probably one of the most notable the ones Eugene Peterson the author of the Bible version known as the message and if you have a copy of the message you may use it for welts got a couple of different uses uses you can use it for kindling You could use it for target practice the site your gun in your deer rifle Be really good to go out and put that on a post and draw a little circle on it with your black magic marker and so as you might be able to tell not a fan of message and maybe maybe we can do a series on that sometime UH knock it out in in a couple of days or so but we are dealing with William Powell Young's newest book lies we believe about God and if you heard the program yesterday doing this series not because I wanted to just beat up on William Paul young or draw out because we did spend tire week on the shack but this if this even if this even sales ten percent are even five percent of the number of copies that the shack did is this too will be a massively popular book unfortunately and if there were ever any doubts S. Two whether or not William Paul Young is a false teacher is a heretic if there were ever any doubts that that he was man who is an enemy of the Gospel then this book should put those doubts to rest I gave an introduction yesterday and I told you a little bit about the book and the forward that was written by a man named Doctor Baxter Kruger who unfortunately is a designer of fishing Lord and really broke my heart when I saw that I liked to fish but anyway today we are going to get into some of these lies The book is comprised of twenty eight chapters each chapter devoted to one of the supposed- lies that we believe about God and I want to do that yes take a few days to do this we'll wrap it up within a few days I'm confident but I wanna do this because I think it's going to be a good exercise and tournament for us to hear these lies quote unquote lies and be ready to engage them and if we hear somebody else repeat one of these lies will be ready to say oh now wait a minute that's that's not true that's not what the Bible teaches let's talk about it here's here's why it's not so so I think it'd be a good exercise in discernment force all right the the first slide discuss we're not going to talk about all twenty eight lies because it just the draw it out too long and I want to get onto other things but I'm GonNa hit I think what I saw is some of the more important more agree GIS lies quote unquote in his book and we'll talk about these and engage them so the first one I want to talk about his out actually the second lie the first slide is book is that God does not like you and everything in that little chapter so subjective I mean it's anyway I'm just GonNa Kinda breeze past that but let's go to his first really substantial lie in it is Li- number two in his book the first one you want to discuss so chapter two of his book the second line that we supposedly believe about God this God is good I am not now the first half of that is of course true God is good the second half I am not good that is also true but William Paul Young says that that's a lie that is ally William Paul young flatly rejects the doctrine that is known as total depravity and it's really a rather unfortunate name total depravity because it it has this connotation that Oh whoa if you believe humans are totally depraved you think we're all months stirs and were all you know mass murderers or child molesters or something like that total the doctrine of total depravity is not that humans are as bad that is they could be yes there there are nice a lot of Nice people out there there are a lot of very generous people out there there are a lot of a very nice lost people out there and there are some lost people out there that undoubtedly if they were to be walking down the sidewalk and find a wallet laying on the sidewalk and pick it up and look inside they say it's full of money undoubtedly there are some lost people not a lot but there are some who would try to find the rightful owner and give the wallet back to the rightful owner with every penny in there so yeah that's not the point it's not that everybody body as bad as it could be but that everybody is totally depraved in a spiritual sense in that there is nothing good in US that we're dead in trespasses and sends a better way to state the doctrine of total depravity is total inability total inability we are all of humanity is totally unable to come to God on their own all we do not seek for God God's sakes for us and seeks us out in the primary passage for that is Romans three ten through eleven Romans Chapter Three Ten through eleven the Apostle Paul says there is none righteous no not one there is none who does good there is no one who seeks after God a no one understands no one does good no one seeks after got so Paul is very clear there are none righteous there is none who does good there is no one who seeks after God God must is to seek after US but William Paul Young would have us believe that this is a lie let me read to you a a lack of a better word kind of a passage here out of his out of his book in this is from Page thirty one page thirty one in lies we believe about God William Paul Young says this he says quote my father was a missionary he was the righteous man who who is never wrong in he was a strict disciplinarian. I believed I deserved his anger of course because there was nothing good in me I was being rightfully punished either and when I didn't have any idea what CNI at committed by omission or commission I did try to defend myself sometimes by lying when that didn't work I resorted to these words which I screamed over and over and over as the waves of his rage approached be good I'll be good I'll be good when I have come to understand over the years is that with every scream of I'll be good I was making a declaration to the core of my being that has taken me decades to unravel that declaration was brutally simple I am not good so William when you read this Book William Paul Young Rarely Appeals to score Sir practically without exception when he does quote aversive scripture he does so out of context he takes it out of context in what he does not do all throughout all of these mini lies that we supposedly believe about God here's what he doesn't do not at one place in the book did I find where he actually engaged the myriads of Bible verses that contradict what he's claiming to be true in other words the verses that would refute him he just does not engage them he just doesn't engage them is like he pretend like they're not even there he doesn't even try to engage them he doesn't say in other words never nowhere in the book will you find him saying like in other words for this live that that we are not good he says that that's a lie that we actually argued he doesn't engage Romans three ten through eleven he doesn't engage Jeremiah seventeen verse nine which says desperately wicked deceitful above all the things who can know it he doesn't engage Jeremiah seventeen verse nine he doesn't engage a fee of Asians chapter to which says we are dead contrasts passes in sins he doesn't engage any of those things what he does is he appeals to his feelings and his emotions he appeals to how he think got ought to be rather than how God has revealed himself to be oh he uses he resorts to human reasoning human emotion human feelings and he constructs a God after his own image in fact audience look in the mirror that has got to be the worst theology I have ever come across in that is utter blasphemy yes we are made in the image of God and that does set us apart from ant eaters aardvarks platypuses and dogs that but that means that does not mean that we are just like God that does not mean that we share in what we refer to as incommunicable attributes we are not omniscient we are not only present we are not Omni benevolent we're not all rubbing we are not all powerful we are not immutable we don't change range so in in we are sinful we are sinful that's the whole crux of the matter here we're fallen creatures we are rebels we have sinned against a thrice holy God so if you WanNa look in the mirror and see what God is lie at that a few I mean if you want to see what God is like don't look in the mirror look to the bimal look to the Bible but he does not do that and it is just a young who apparently had a bad upbringing his father who was a missionary apparently from what we're gathering was not a good missionary sounds like you as a an angry man sounds like he was.
