  • Forgiveness in no way requires that you trust the one you forgive.
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")

  • If you and I are friends, there is an expectancy that exists within our relationship. When we see each other or are apart, there is an expectancy of being together, of laughing and talking. The expectancy has no concrete definition; it is alive and dynamic and everything that emerges from our being together is a unique gift shared by no one else.
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")

  • Paradigms power perception and perceptions power emotions. Most emotions are responses to perception - what you think is true about a given situation. If your perception is false, then your emotional response to it will be false too. So check your perceptions, and beyond that check the truthfulness of your paradigms - what you believe. Just because you believe something firmly doesn't make it true. Be willing to reexamine what you believe.
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")

  • Through . . . lies you try to run your life and manipulate others. . . . Lies become an inhibitor in your relationship . . . .
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")

  • Forgiveness is first for you, the forgiver...to release you from something that will eat you alive; that will destroy your joy and your ability to love fully and openly. Do you think this man cares about the pain and torment you have gone through? If anything, he feeds on that knowledge. Don't you want to cut that off? And in doing so, you'll release him from a burden that he carries whether he knows it or not--acknowledges it or not.
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")


  • It is remarkable how a seemingly insignificant action or event can change entire lives.
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")

  • Paradigms power perceptions, perceptions power emotions.
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")

  • Why do children love to hide and seek? Ask any person who has a passion to explore and discover and create. The choice to hide so many wonders from you is an act of love that is a gift inside the process of life.
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")

  • All I want from you is to trust me with what little you can, and grow in loving people around you with the same love I share with you. It's not your job to change them, or to convince them. You are free to love without an agenda.
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")

  • Forgiveness is not about forgetting, Mack. It is about letting go of another person's throat.
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")

  • It is so easy to get sucked into the if-only game, and playing it is a short and slippery slide into despair.
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")

  • Perhaps there is supranatural: reason beyond the normal definitions of fact or data-based logic; something that only makes sense if you can see a bigger picture of reality. Maybe that is where faith fits in.
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")

  • Women, in general, will find it difficult to turn from a man and stop demanding that he meets their needs, provides security, and protects their identity, and return to me. Men, in general, find it very hard to turn from the works of their hands, their own quests for power and security and significance, and turn to me.
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")

  • And the Law that once contained impossible demands -- Thou Shalt Not... -- actually becomes a promise we fulfill in you.
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")

  • From the first day we hid the woman within the man, so that at the right time we could remove her from within him. We didn't create man to live alone; she was purposed from the beginning. By taking her out of him, he birthed her in a sense. We created a circle of relationship, like our own, but for humans. She, out of him, and now all the males, including me, birthed through her, and all originating, or birthed, from God.
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")
