It takes one ta know one

Here's the take of a leading universalist on Rob Bell:


  1. Every nonuniversalist at the very least ought to hope that the universalists are right.

  2. Steve,

    I did a brief comparison of Bell's position with that of universalist Paul Dean here: Universalism: Rob Bell and Paul Dean.

    Dean, like Bell, seems to take hell as a punitive place where sins are paid for much like the idea of purgatory. Except, of course, everyone gets to go. Dean also places free-will as important and holds that although all will ultimately believe it is not a forced type of belief. Rather, we will "all be united in perfect love to God and each other".

    Do their beliefs line-up? I think so...

  3. Rob Bell is the Ed Wood of Emerg/ Christianity.
