What is needed most today is a clear and accurate proclamation of the Gospel of GOD, by Christian preachers, whose lives have been transformed by the work of regeneration. Unitarian spiritualists, such as Rob Bell, cannot, no matter how gifted they are in literary savvy, tell anyone the truth about the GOD of Scripture.
Rob Bell is utterly confused with his ideal of who/what GOD is. He offers no definitive evidence that would give anyone of intelligence pause for thought, or that would challenge their world-view. He writes/speaks from within the safe-guard of speculation, which then, leaves his readers/listeners wide open to the lies of moral relativism. Jesus taught that the preaching of His Gospel would be offensive to every generation because its truth would bring light upon the darkness that men love. The only offense taken as the result of Bell’s message in LOVE WINS is by those who believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of GOD, and, that its message is infallible. In other words, THE GOSPEL MEANS WHAT THE GOSPEL SAYS
Both John MacArthur and John Piper, to name just two well-knowns, have spoken/written extensively in reference to the heresy being taught by Rob Bell. We all know where these men stand in the defence of biblical truth. They have given their lives to the study of GOD and to the preaching of the only Gospel message that has the power to transform a life. Their reputations can be trusted.
Rob Bell on the other hand, serves the god of his own unregenerate spirit and a secular mind, which is, as of yet, depraved of the knowledge of creations one and only true living GOD, Jesus Christ.
I do not possess anywhere near the solid theological knowledge of either MacArthur or Piper, but, when I was hopelessly lost in sin and wandering aimlessly through life, GOD personally revealed Himself to me through the person of Jesus Christ. This act of compassion shown to me by GOD is a work in progress which is transforming my life and has given me the confidence of knowing who GOD is and that what the Bible teaches is true.
I’m the author of “LIVING IN THE HOPE OF MY IMAGINATION”. I’ve written a book that presents a biblical account of the sovereign GOD of Scripture, the depravity of fallen humanity, and, of the only way a person will ever come to the true knowledge of creations GOD.
Unlike Rob Bell, I answer the questions we have all asked, based solely upon what Scripture alone, reveals is the will of GOD. You want closure to the questions of which today’s secular writers/speakers have not the answers for?, I would suggest that you read my book. What I’ve written will challenge your world-view, and provoke thought, as to the reality of GOD, and the purpose for all of the pain and suffering, and the struggles we endure in this crazy thing known as life. I address these topics in the chapter titled, “Influence By Design”.
Today’s popular evangelical Christianity is nothing like what the writers of Holy Scripture instructed the Christian witness is to be like. And sadly, church congregants can only emulate what their leaders postulate.
Well did Charles H. Spurgeon write when describing the man yet unregenerate in spirit, and void of the conviction of reason awakened to the call of proclaiming the Gospel.
“GOD chooses not milktops destitute of backbone, to wear His glory upon their faces. We have plenty of men made of sugar, nowadays, that melt into the stream of popular opinion; but these shall never ascend into the hill of the Lord, nor stand in His holy place, nor wear the tokens of His glory.”
Rob Bell, is such a man… Beware of wolves in sheep’s clothing!
