Hi, I’m Wendy, also known as “Gwen Shamblin’s Hair.” Thank you for visiting my blog! I overhear a lot of folks making fun of me. I get it; I look ridiculous. But there is good reason for my clownish towering appearance: I am distancing myself, in protest, from the one that I am forced to reside upon: Gwen Shamblin. And so, my hope is that when people see me, they will no longer see an outlandish spectacle, but rather a gospel-driven protest, a protest that I hope you will join me in by distancing yourself as far as you can from Gwen Shamblin’s destructive errors.
“Which destructive errors?”, you ask. C.S. Lewis famously said, “Put first things first and we get second things thrown in: put second things first and we lose both first and second things.” And so, there is only one thing genuinely worth addressing regarding Shamblin’s errors: it’s those relating to The Gospel! No matter what Shamblin may get right and no matter what else Shamblin may get wrong, if she has perverted The Gospel, she has abandoned the first things. And her failure at this point, The Gospel, is all that we need to know about her teaching in order to warrant our protest and complete rejection of her destructive ministry. Consequently, addressing Gwen Shamblin’s fundamental corruption of The Good News will be the primary focus of my blog’s content.
The Good News really is good news. Shamblin’s gospel, regrettably, is not. The Gospel is not, as Gwen says, “personal responsibility in Christ.” The Gospel is that you, from beginning to end, are rescued from destruction and set apart for the good purposes of God by means of an unmerited or undeserving gift, in Jesus Christ, and not because of anything whatsoever about you (Ephesians 2:8-9). You are not The Gospel. You have never been The Gospel. And you will never be The Gospel. Christ and Christ alone is The Gospel. And when you get that, you will no longer be tossed about by every wind of doctrine that attempts to sway you from the faith that has been handed down once and for all by the apostles, especially as such winds relate to the foolish and arrogant gusts of Gwen Shamblin’s Weigh Down ministry and Remnant Fellowship Church.
