MSNBC Host Makes Rob Bell Squirm: "You're Amending The Gospel...

Oh, how good it is to see that that those who were decrying Justin Taylor for His criticism did not really understand the issue at all.  You don't have to read everything to make a comment and discern wether a writer is orthodox in his theology or not.  One can, should, and do make educated judgments based on previous experience, understandings, evidences. Those that complained about Taylor and Piper need to become much more discerning rather than trying to sound intelligent.   


Justin Taylor Commented on this video: 
Martin Bashir is a reporter impatient with evasive answers. He even quotes from Kevin DeYoung’s review and asks Rob Bell to respond. Bashir gives his own take on Bell’s book: “You’re creating a Christian message that’s warm, kind, and popular for contemporary culture. . . . What you’ve done is you’re amending the gospel, the Christian message, so that it’s palatable to contemporary people who find, for example, the idea of hell and heaven very difficult to stomach. So here comes Rob Bell, he’s made a Christian gospel for you, and it’s perfectly palatable, it’s much easier to swallow. That’s what you’ve done, haven’t you?”

So the question has been raging in the blog-sphere Is Rob Bell a universalist?


The Sola sisters say:
Well, yes and no.  And by that I mean, "Yes," Rob Bell is a Universalist, but that "No," he wouldn't call himself that because what he really believes in is a slyer, more "Christianized" version of Universalism called "Universal Reconciliation."
I believe that is a great summary and it is good to use the term "universal reconciliation" to describe his position.  

Lisa Miller interviews Rob Bell.  Rob Bell just cannot say anything straight out.  It shows how deceptive He is.

With Respect to Rob Bell I would suggest listening to Watch out for those who lead you away from the truth
