Rob Bell book 'Love Wins' stirs controversy, denies core Christian beliefs
Those experiences belong. I would encourage all pastors to address this issue. If my kingdom were of this world, that I might not be delivered over to the Jews, would probably have had some very pointed things to say about Bell. Luther does not agree with Bell a?Postmodern Evangelicals believe in salvation now psychological whole. Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. This review was co-written with my friend Aaron Armstrong who writes at Blogging Theologically. The greatest false beliefs are those which go unchallenged for a long time.

God would have no choice but to punish them forever in conscious torment in hell! Rob makes a huge mess of all the parables. And I guess this is my chief criticisms: it's just too thin. I do not myself feel that any person who is really profoundly humane can believe in everlasting punishment.
It's an icon, a sculptu. Jesus isn't talking about forever as we think of 'forever. It just never made sense! More than a decade of work in Christian retail has shown me that people are looking for answers.

Does a loving God really send people to hell for all eternity? Is it true that Rob Bell believes no one goes to hell? How he asks the question is just as important as the question itself. Is this acceptable to God? That is especially true when the debate is framed in this way, through these particular questions. No offense, and no pun intended. A staggering number of people have been taught that a select few Christians will spend forever in a peaceful, joyous place called heaven, while the rest of humanity spends forever in torment and punishment in hell with no chance for anything better….
Finally, he uses a quote by Martin Luther that seems to support the view. He's pulling stuff way out of context and hoping his audience doesn't look to closely. Firstly, these comments were made before the book was released on 15th March. Boo one page in five has one or more questions on it.
Third, I am grateful that he's raising these issues. Most pontificate on why they the commonly accepted answers are right and stay away from the really challenging questions and possible criticisms from their uneducated congregants and bloggers. Keep reading. They are truths we don't know how to reconcile.
