“Pastor Stirs Wrath With His Views on Old Questions”
“In a book to be published this month, the pastor, Rob Bell, known for his provocative views and appeal among the young, describes as “misguided and toxic” the dogma that “a select few Christians will spend forever in a peaceful, joyous place called heaven, while the rest of humanity spends forever in torment and punishment in hell with no chance for anything better.”
Due to the controversy in his teaching as well as his upcoming book, Rob Bell seems to continue bringing an avalanche of attention both from the non-Christians and the Christian community. I disagree with his philosophy which some call as “approaching heresy.”. I am till learning the scriptures and don’t want to say much. But, if some of you feel like sharing edifying statements and scriptures it will be enlightening.
