SOUTHERN PINES, NC—A group of friends walking out of a matinee showing of the new movie adaptation of William P. Young’s bestselling novel The Shack Friday afternoon excitedly discussed their newfound misconceptions about the nature of God and the Trinity, sources confirmed.
“I just love how the Father was represented as a matronly woman, just hangin’ out and making pancakes for everyone,” one of the moviegoers reportedly said as he tossed his empty bag of popcorn into a waste bin. “That’s definitely the most faithful representation of Almighty God I’ve seen on the big screen.”
Another member of the group agreed. “Yeah, and how she showed her scars from the cross. I’ve never thought about how the Father was crucified with the Son—but it’s all so clear now.”
“That stuff is great, but I really liked how Jesus was so chill,” another chimed in, according to sources. “When he goes running on the water with Mack, I was like, yup—classic Jesus. That’s the Savior of the world if I’ve ever seen Him.”
At publishing time, several members of the group reportedly could not wait to start discussions with family and friends so they could enlighten them with their newfound misconceptions about the nature of the eternal Lord of all creation.
