Can you imagine Roger Ebert...

Going back to my movie analogy, let’s say Roger Ebert had watched 30 minutes of The Return of the King. Would you consider him to have “watched the movie”? Would you feel comfortable with him publishing a critical review having only seen 1/6 of the content? I readily acknowledge that Justin Taylor read excerpts from the book–even whole chapters–but that does not count as having read the book.

If it is not the worst film I have ever seen, that makes it all the more shameful: People with talent allowed themselves to participate in this travesty. Disgusted and unspeakably depressed, I walked out of the film after two hours of its 170-minute length.


  1. I have not read the book but I watched the video where Mrr. Bell promotes himself/agenda or is it the book?

    Enough of that ....

    I have had reservations about Mr. Bell for years so if he is being consistent then he cannot help but have embraced some form of universalism.

    He desires God to be fair. I have desired and continue to desire that God be Perfect. There is a big difference between the two.

    And since we are called to contend for the faith, then people who wander from it neeed to be challenged.

  2. Steve's review of universalist Jan Bonda’s book The One Purpose of God

    part 2

  3. Having heard sermons preached by Mr. Bell, I don't think that saying he is outside Christianity is at all unwarranted.

    Heck, just listen to what "gospel" he preaches:
