Celebrity -- Risky Business

Woe to you when all men speak well of you,
for that is how their fathers treated the false prophets.
Luke 6:26

In this short interview (click on question 7) with Wayne Jacobsen, he talks about the distraction of success. He is the publisher and editor of “The Shack”, a book that is shattering many people’s perceptions of who our Heavenly Father is and how He desires to love us. The challenge that Wayne is encountering is that he finds that people want to treat him like a celebrity because the book has generated over 7 million in sales with literally no end in sight.

But when the apostles Barnabas and Paul heard of this, they tore their clothes and rushed out into the crowd, shouting: "Men, why are you doing this? We too are only men, human like you. We are bringing you good news, telling you to turn from these worthless things to the living God, who made heaven and earth and sea and everything in them.
Acts 14:14-15
