Thanks Ric for the heads up!

The Gospel Coalition’s treatment of Bell this weekend makes me angry. “We don’t know that you’re a universalist, but we’re going to accuse you of heresy anyway and wait to see if we’re wrong.” Ridiculous.

My only question to Rob Bell is… Boy Scouts or Royal Ambassadors?

Let’s hope Rob doesn’t castrate himself too, though he may have some people trying to do it for him…

On another note, “Farewell Taco Bell.” #universalmeatism

So MPT made Christianity Today!

I don’t get the big deal about this at all. A bunch of preachers and bloggers I’ve never heard of nor really care about battling each other over theology or the “wording” of theology.

Good Grief!!

And here I was thinking this was about Art Bell. I am so out of touch with contemporary evangelicalism.

And by love it, I mean, it astounds me and uproots the deepest cynicism in me that Rob Bell is treated so poorly for examining his own beliefs and sharing them with others. I love the irony of the art and the recognition of the first great biblical commentator and scholar and his honest beliefs.

Any Christian who decides to embark on a theological examination of their own eschatology will soon realize how much Platonic and Hellenistic thought has seeped into their worldview, giving way to their own interpretation of hell. When someone questions this in the least, and recommends that maybe, just maybe, the saving work of Jesus Messiah has no limits to it he is deemed a heretic and a false preacher. As I have mentioned earlier in comments, the notion of hell surprises me. So many people will become frantic if you question it, but still some how have the time to tweet, blog, write, comment, and accuse those who may not have the same beliefs. If I held the belief that millions of people were being cast into eternal torment forever and ever, and if I truly believed it with all of my heart, many things in my life would have to change dramatically. I don’t think I could honestly sleep at night, let alone work a job or go to school or God forbid comment on an online blog. Such triviality attached to such a weighty thing, and I just don’t understand it all.

    You say it so well.

    One of the things I’ve really struggled with in recent years is this concept of hell, considering there is so little Biblical support for it, at least as we in particularly American culture have imagined it. Our visions of hell are much more influenced by Dante than actual Biblical teaching, and I’ve been leaning a lot closer to Bell’s opinions of things than traditional Orthodox teaching. If that makes me a heretic, than I am in good company.

Thank you. I’m glad to be in good company as well. Unfortunately for us it seems that too often the most hopeful ways to think about the divine are also the most lonely. I struggle with this day in and day out. Heresy is such a staunch accusation, and one that the historical Jesus was accused of many times. Perhaps we can find even greater company there.
