It makes me feel sad I guess. Sad not just for Rob Bell but for the people that respond to him with such malice. I think, and I stress think, the reaction Christ would want us to have would be to pray for him that he might see that this is not the gospel Christ taught.

rob bell... the charlie sheen of theology?

Or, perhaps, Mr. Bell is just setting us up for the punchline. Like Darin said..."Rob Bell's new book isn't out yet."

Honestly, I think the video raises some good questions. Like so many in the emergent stream, I think Rob asks great questions - questions we need to be asking ourselves.

I for one am interested in where he is going to go from there. I'll probably borrow his book from Darin after he buys it ;)

I think the Bible has the answers to his questions. Matthew 7:13 enter through the narrow gate for wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction. MANY will enter through it. ITS IN THE BIBLE YO! And of course it is something that MOST do not want to hear or teach because it is offensive to our human way of living.

2 timothy 4:3 For there shall come a time when they will not endure sound doctrine. Sounds a lot like the world today doesnt it?

Have any of you picked up the book? I hear it went well in sales the first 24 hours--nothing like a huge controversy on the eve of the books release to generate some sales.

I haven't picked it up. I've maxed my spend quote for a couple of weeks. I'll probably buy a copy in April.

Let me know what you discover.

In the case of Abraham and David, their entry into heaven was by their faith. It states in Hebrews that their faith was counted as righteousness. Let us remember that there was a period of time before jesus. The real question is, "what is faith?".
