If one believes that God will allow all to enter heaven, then, we must ask the obvious question what is the purpose of missions?
Tonight, I'm trying to sort through all this. I'm anxious to see how Rob Bell defends his words.
A friend and I are doing a weekly study of Rob Bell's book Velvet Elvis. I have already gotten a lot out of the book. It's actually really pushing me to go deeper. But I will have a problem and be quite saddened if Bell turns out to be leaning toward Universalism. I will have to read this new book for myself. I don't think I can assume I understand his theology based on what other people are writing about him. But, I did watch this short video clip and was left confused.
Some people thought Brian McLaren's book, A Generous Orthodoxy, was pretty liberal in theology and pulling bits and pieces from all different religions. I loved it, and would highly recommend it.
Now, I'm anxiously awaiting Rob Bell's new book. I'm hoping he will continue to speak biblical truth.
