Rob Bell on Hell!

Rob Bell is out with another theological blunder trying to explain away hell rather than doing something to keep people from going there! So who is going to hell? That's the question Bell tries to answer in his new book "Love Wins." Of course love wins Bell! That is the whole point of the Gospel - God loved us, Jesus died for us, rose from the grave and now there is a way to escape the reality of hell. In all honesty, I haven't read this book yet and don't really plan to. If Bell had shown anything other than wishful theology in the past I might be more inclined to read it but I'm not. Not having read it I will be careful not to judge what I don't know. What I do know is that hell is a very real place described vividly in the Bible. This truth is uncomfortable and like some people will avoid going to the doctor because they fear a diagnosis, some Christians just pretend it isn't in scripture or explain away the clear verses on this subject in the Bible. If you don't like hell, join the crowd! Neither do I and, remember, neither does God. That is why He sent His Son Jesus! In stead of pretending Hell doesn't exist, please decide today to "snatch others from the fire and save them" (Jude 1:21-23)!It is funny (and sad) how these leaders that say what peoples' itching ears want to hear have so many followers. Check out what the Bible really says about hell by clicking here (get those notes here) and watch a very revealing interview with Bell on secular TV below. I truly believe Rob Bell is my brother in Christ but he's quite off track. As Randy Alcorn tweeted yesterday, "Farewell, Rob Bell."


  1. Thanks for speaking out against this book! It's my belief that when somebody makes headlines with a heretical book, Christians should make headlines speaking the truth of God's Word. We need to let people know what is really going on here.

    To the best of my knowledge Bell's book hasn't yet been released, but somebody wrote a great review on it after obtaining an early copy that you should definitely check out. It's very insightful and contains several quotes directly from the book itself.

    In Christ,

    "Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son."
    -II John 1:9

    "Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven"
    -Matthew 5":19
