A Meeting of Hearts … Mack and Papa talked about his reunion with Missy through the waterfall and suddenly Mack thought of Missy’s favorite legend of the Indian princess whose death over the waterfall saved her people – was it for him that Missy had to die?
Papa said that his ability to work good out of Missy’s death didn’t mean he needed Missy’s death to work good – so no, Missy didn’t have to die for Mack’s sake.

“The Shack – Chp. 13 – A Meeting of Hearts” Show Notes
Mack confessed that he had always liked Jesus more – he felt Papa was the stern disciplinarian while Jesus was the loving, forgiving one. Therefore he had never enjoyed being in the presence of Papa. Papa explained that Jesus represented Papa’s heart perfectly while he was on earth, so to know Jesus, to love Jesus, should also be to know and love Papa.
Papa also confronted Mack on the little lies he had been telling himself and others. Lies to “protect” others that were really only to protect himself and which, ultimately, hinder relationship. She also showed him how his choices caused his pain which ultimately drove him to her. She explained that love never forces anything or anyone into relationship, but love was why Jesus was willing to die on the cross, to open the way for that relationship to happen.
