Rob Bell Stirs Wrath With His Views on Scripture
A new book by one of the country’s most influential evangelical pastors, challenging traditional Christian views of heaven, hell and eternal damnation, has created an uproar among evangelical leaders, with the most ancient of questions being argued in a biblical hailstorm of Twitter messages and blog posts.

In a book to be published this month, the pastor, Rob Bell, known for his provocative views and appeal among the young, describes as “misguided and toxic” the dogma 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.”

Much of the book is a sometimes obscure discussion of the meaning of heaven and hell that tears away at the standard ideas. In his version, heaven is something that begins here on earth, in a life of goodness, and hell seems ...

"But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 9 As we said before , so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received , let him be accursed." Gal. 1

Anathema (Accursed):

1. a thing set up or laid by in order to be kept
1. specifically, an offering resulting from a vow, which after being consecrated to a god was hung upon the walls or columns of the temple, or put in some other conspicuous place
2. a thing devoted to God without hope of being redeemed, and if an animal, to be slain; therefore a person or thing doomed to destruction
1. a curse
2. a man accursed, devoted to the direst of woes

"Evangelical"? That is not even remotely accurate, apostate is the biblical description. Bell has completely abandoned every form of sound doctrine and openly declares his denunciation of biblical truth and thereby has profaned the Word of the Lord.

"Rob Bell Stirs Wrath With His Views on Scripture", says the heading.

"Views on Scripture"? Yes, in these last days, it is going to be our view of scripture that determines whether we stand or fall. It shows great wisdom to be amongst those who hold the Bible to be inerrant and inspired. Now please note, that when I say "The Bible", I am not, as the subterfuguists, talking about the autographs (the original mss); rather I am talking about the Bible I can hold in my hand, translated into English. Personally I have always maintained that The Bible is without error, and can be trusted wholly to learn truth concerning man and God, heaven and hell, redemption by Jesus Christ by faith alone, and the power of the blood of Christ to save every penitent that calls upon his name.

This fellow, whoever he is, is simply a symptom of the age in which we live, where the old beliefs concerning The Bible are being eroded away. Take Heed!

By the time Jesus comes back, will there any on earth who trust God's word? Yes there will! By God's grace there will be! Praise God!

"challenging traditional Christian views of heaven, hell and eternal damnation"

Another Liberal reprobate wanting to belong to the religion of "be nice be nice be nice" The shortcut to universalism is an old worn out human hypothesis of the false teachers, who would rather be "men-pleasers" than stick to the Word of God.

Bell's question whether Ghandi is in hell or not is really all about emotions rather than the facts of Biblical Christianity, but he also clearly casts doubt upon the death and resurrection of Christ. Thus clearly Mr Bell is not saved!

Jesus has no doubts about heaven and hell....
Matt 10:28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell."

Peter too...
2Peter 2:4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;"

And the keys to the doors...
Rev 1:18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death."

Another client wresting The Scriptures.

2Pe 3:16 "As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction".

Rob Bell is post-mod emerging church. What more is needed to know? Grey is the post-mod's favorite color, in keeping with their position on truth.

More than ignored; resisted through prayer and faithfull teaching of God's people through the scripture.
