If Love Wins, What is Lost? A Response to Rob Bell - Part 1 - orphansofwar.infoBy Rob Bell. The fanfare that surrounded the release of this book was enormous. Since Bell is openly postmodern, this book should not come as a shock to anyone. Postmodern Evangelicals believe in salvation now psychological wholeness, saving the planet via ecology, instituting peace and justice in our time, etc. Thus the notion of eternal torment in hell is one that unsurprisingly is rejected by Bell.
Pastor's Book Questions Existence of Hell in Afterlife
In Love Wins, bestselling author, international teacher, and speaker Rob Bell Velvet Elvis, Drops Like Stars addresses one of the most controversial issues of faith—hell and the afterlife—arguing, would a loving God send people to eternal torment forever? And ultimately, Love Wins. Rob Bell, the beloved author of Love Wins and What We Talk About When We Talk About God, goes deep into the Bible to show how it is more revelatory, revolutionary, and relevant than we ever imagined—and offers a cogent argument for why we need to look at it in a fresh, new way. In Love Wins, Rob Bell confronted the troubling questions that many people of faith were afraid to ask about heaven, hell, fate, and faith. Using the same inspired, inquisitive approach, he now turns to our most sacred book, the Bible. What Is the Bible? Rob takes us deep into actual passages to reveal the humanity behind the Scriptures.

First, I believe that Jesus's story is first and foremost about the love of God for every single one of us. It is a stunning, beautiful, expansive love, and it is for everybody, everywhere. That's the story. That's his message. That's where the life is found. There are a growing number of us who have become acutely aware that Jesus's story has been hijacked by a number of other stories, stories Jesus isn't interested in telling, because they have nothing to do with what he came to do. The plot has been lost, and it's time to reclaim it.
Copyright c Baptist Press. Reprinted from Baptist Press www. BP --Few events in recent memory have caused as much controversy and confusion among evangelicals as the latest book by well-known pastor Rob Bell, who in "Love Wins" denies hell and affirms a form of universalism -- all the while claiming he has done neither. Bell -- a key figure in the emerging church movement -- often has flirted with controversy, such as the time in when he was asked about homosexuality and danced around the issue, refusing to take a historical biblical stand. Nothing that Bell has written or said, though, has been as controversial as Love Wins.
