Exceptional Job Reviewing Rob Bell's Book


I read Rob Bell's book "Love Wins" last week. Besides manipulating and distorting the statements of several important figures in Church history, mishandling the text of Scripture, and constantly bashing anyone who believes the words of Christ about hell are true, it's a great book.

I was mad as H-E-double hockey sticks reading this book. Rob Bell is just an old school liberal in hip clothes, glasses, and hair. I stick with my designation of him as a wolf.

I came across Kevin DeYoung's review of the book last week but waited to finish reading the book myself. DeYoung does a tremendous job reviewing this book. You simply must read what he says. Check out DeYoung's review "God is still Holy and what you learned in Sunday School is still true: A review of Love Wins"here.

The man is sincere. That's nice, but sincerity is not a substitute for truth.

As I read most of what Kevin DeYoung's reviewed, the thought of sure surprise came to mind. First of all, we know God will hold Bell accountable for every person he has confused and led astray. That’s some serious judgment heaped upon his final sentence. But when the Lord says to him, “Depart from me accursed one, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels!” I wonder if he will try to persuade God that “love wins” therefore God must tone down His harsh and cruel treatment of sin. He must change with the times and understand the definition of love has changed as well. Don’t think Bell’s feeble defense will hold up before God’s perfect and just courtroom judgment. And what a surprise for unrepentant Bell! On his trip to hell, I can hear him say, “Love wins, therefore I am not in hell, I am not in hell, I am not in hell!”
