Rob Bell – Apostate Universalist

Rob Bell is “pastor” of Mars Hill “Bible church” in Grand Rapids, MI. He is coy, congenial, and evil in his deceptive lies about the word of God and the Lord Jesus. His “Nooma” videos were the rage in many churches for a while. He has written several books, leading shallow thinking or non-thinking people astray from Truth. Now he is out of the closet as one who believes – as does the cult of Rome – that most folk go to Heaven, because Rob and the pope cannot imagine a God Who is Holy and just; nor do they believe that man is depraved and of no profit to his soul. May God have mercy on any who listen to this snake.

ROB BELL OUT OF THE CLOSET FOR UNIVERSALISM

By Ken Silva pastor-teacher on Feb 25, 2011 in AM Missives, Current Issues, Emergence Christianity, Emergent Church, Features, Rob Bell, Youth Ministry

Since squishy evanjellyfish has now followed the mortally wounded mainline denominations out of the closet with its man-love of heart murmur spirituality at the expense the God-centered spirituality of sola Scriptura, Apprising Ministries has been giving you peeks at its bleak future of division and compromise of God’s Word.

Thanks to its embracing the sinfully ecumenical neo-liberal cult of the Emergent Church aka the Emerging Church—with its  its “big tent” Progressive Christianity aka Emergence Christianity—and by using warped and toxic teachings of EC leaders like Emerging Church rock star pastor Rob Bell, evangelical churches poisoned its own young.

As a result we are seeing within mainstream evangelicalism a reimagined version of just about every piece of antibiblical theology i.e. doctrines of demons that seducing spirits have ever attempted to bring with them as they slither into the Christian Church. One that is being openly promoted now is so-called Christian Universalism.

Lord willing I’ll have more on this later; but for now, I’ve told you for years now that Rob Bell embraces a form of universalism. For the person willing to be objective, the video promo below for his new book dispells any doubt that Bell is teaching this heresy:

A Book About Heaven, Hell, and the Fate of Every Person Who Ever Lived.

Rob Bell addresses one of the most controversial issues of faith—the afterlife—arguing, would a loving God send people to eternal torment forever…? With searing insight, Bell puts hell on trial, and his message is decidedly hopeful—eternal life doesn’t start when we die; it starts right now. And ultimately, Love Wins. (Online source)

  1. Rob Bell has been a universalist for some time now.
    Shane Hipps joined the mars Hill as a Teaching Pastor and has taught in Rob Bell hearing Universalism from the time he started as a pastor there.
    Listen to the sermon from Fighting for the faith http://podcast.fightingforthefaith.com/fftf/F4F092309.mp3

  2. Thanks for the link, papa. Yes, Rob and his ilk – sigh. As the sermons on heresy by Dan Philips that were posted here a while back pointed out – ain’t nothing new.

  3. Great post Manfred and wonderful insight linking Bell with the apostate church of Rome. Many miss the conection with evangelical wolves in sheeps clothing and the Vatican, so thank you for pointing that out.
    All roads do indeed lead to Rome.

  4. Let’s see what is going on here. Bell doesn’t believe in Hell. Jesus Christ spoke of Hell clearly and even told John (in Revelation) that He would sentence the unredeemed to eternal judgment. Since both of these individuals are in positions where they would know the truth (one by reading and the other by virtue of being God), one of them is lying. So do we believe Bell or God?

  5. Thank you for passing this along, Manfred. Call it “emerging” or “progressive”, but by whatever name, these false teachers (Bell, McLaren, Pagett, Jones, et al.) are united in promoting a false gospel which rips apart the Faith as it is defined in the Scriptures, and replaces it with a counterfeit which is pleasing to everyone (except God). If everyone is getting to Heaven (or Nirvana, eternal bliss, etc. depending on one’s chosen “path”), then the issues of Sin, Judgment and accountability become moot, and preaching about Hell and eternal punishment becomes an unnecessary, “offensive”, and perhaps “harmful” practice. Thus, the “gospel” that remains is a Moral Therapeutic Deism with a practical emphasis on Dominionism. At it’s basis is the old, old process: attacking the objective truth and supreme authority of God’s word, and replacing it with subjective “truth”.

  6. Thank you so much for posting this warning. The gospel is offensive to carnal man and false converts because it attacks the idols that men have made in their own image. Rob Bell can’t imagine a God that sends people to hell because it’s not the god that he worships. Yahweh doesn’t appeal to him because He violates the expectations that he has as dictated by his nature.

    It is unfortunate that when we try to warn others of false gospels that we are often faced with reprimands about how loving we should be and that it’s not our place to judge. I suspect that this would somewhat resemble Bell’s response to this post. What needs to be placed out front as a rebuttal, however, is that warning others of heresy is one of the most loving things you can do. We are NEVER commanded in scripture to trade discernment for folly all in the name of love.

    I hope that Bell’s heresy is met with the infallible word of God as he goes out into the world to propagate his lies.

    May it all be for His glory,
    W.

  7. Will only a select few get to be saved- yes Rob, they are called elect. What is God really like, the message is that Jesus rescues us from God. Well yes Rob, we are saved from God’s wrath. He doesn’t want the true God, he wants this wishy washy God who just loves everyone one sooo much He couldn’t bear to send anyone to hell. Even when we reject His Son, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, well God still says, well come on I’ll accept you anyway because I love you so much. The only time he spoke the truth was to reject it. A simple reading of the Scriptures even by a new believer marks him out as a heretic, liar, wolf, yet still people follow him.

  8. And there’s this snippet from 3 years back, demonstrating that this new book and what it represents is nothing new for the false guide known as Rob Bell: http://apprising.org/2008/12/10/rob-bell-and-christian-universalism/

  9. But wait – there’s more! At this link, a sermon from a reformed pastor warning his flock about Rob Bell, Tony Jones, and their ilk. In accordance with Rom 16:17 – “Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.”

  10. In Bell’s own words:

    “Gandhi’s in hell? He is? And someone knows this, for sure; and felt the need to let the rest of us know? Will only a few, select, people make it to heaven? And will billions and billions of people burn forever in hell? And, if that’s the case, how do you become one of the few? Is it what you believe; or what you say, or what you do, or who you know—or something that happens in your heart? Or do you need to be initiated, or baptized, or take a class, or converted, or being born again—how does one become one of these few?”

  11. Yes,i believe Rob Bell is a hieratic,while we should warn people to stay away from his teachings,we should also be praying for him,that the Father would open his eyes and grant him the grace of repentance and salvation.

  12. Here is another audio link of Chris Rosebrough of Fighting for the Faith reviewing the sermon from Rob Bell called Love wins.

  13. Okay, let’s stay clear of Rob Bell. But, what about also staying clear of Pat Robertson, Benny Hinn, Michael Brown, Lou Engle and a host of others who have prophesied falsely, proving they are not of God? How come we tolerate them?
