Beware of false comfort in 'The Shack,' warns scholar
Mar. 21, 2017 - Dr. James De Young, a professor of New Testament language and literature at Western Seminary in Portland, Oregon,
warns that the book and the movie "The Shack" teaches the false doctrine known as universal reconciliation.
De Young said universalists believe everyone will ultimately come to God through Jesus Christ and go to heaven,
and if they don’t accept Jesus before they die, they will do so after they die.

Barna detects dangerous breach in the wall
Mar, 17, 2017 - Pollster George Barna reveals that only four percent of America's more than 75 million Millennials have a biblical worldview.
Polls show that only 4% of Millennials, those reaching young adulthood around the year 2000 and later, have a biblical worldview. Barna says:
"It's important that Christian families have worldview conversations – early and often – because "the worldview that you have at the age 13
is essentially the worldview that you die with."
Unfortunately, the parents of Millennials may not have a biblical worldview either, so grandparents may need to lead those conversations.
