Shamblin Weighed in the Balance
Down Workshop founder, Gwen Shamblin has moved rapidly
down the road toward cultism. Mrs. Shamblin has now
publicly indicated that she denies the trinity and calls
all other churches "false," "worthless"
and "an abomination," especially those whose
emphasis is a grace message.

Lordship emphasis has manifested now in a new "church"

false gospel view as well as a restorationalist mentality.
The historic Church of Christ also has a spotty and
weak view of the Trinity – being fiercely anticreedal,
but Shamblin’s published arguments against the
Trinity are actually the same as used by the Jehovah’s

a new opportunity to come to Christ’s Lordship,
which could eventuate in salvation, based on your obedience.

Her first book sold over 1 million copies.
As a result of
this emerging cultism, Thomas Nelson publishers have
cancelled the release of her second book, and a growing
number of churches have begun to cut the program including
Moody Memorial Church, Coral Ridge Presbyterian, Briarwood
Presbyterian, and College Park Baptist.
Gwen has fired
over 36 employees who would not join her new church.
