Kevin DeYoung Reviews Rob Bell

God Is Still Holy and What You Learned in Sunday School Is Still True!

If Love Wins is wrong—if the theology departs from the apostolic good deposit, if the biblical reasoning falls short in a hundred places, if the god of Love Wins and the gospel of Love Wins are profoundly mistaken—if all this is true, then what damage has been done to the souls of men and women?

Bad theology hurts real people. So of all the questions raised in the book, the most important question every reader must answer is this: is it true? Whatever you think of all the personalities involved on whatever side of the debate, that’s the one question that cannot be ignored. Is Love Wins true to the word of God? That’s the issue. Open a Bible, pray to God, listen to the faithful Christians of the past 2000 years, and answer the question for yourself.

really makes me glad that I'm not in America or following all this American stuff in theology. Bell is a hipster to me, not really a true universalist, and not a theologian either. I've seen a few Word-Faith people even getting on the bandwagon of criticizing Bell, but it amazes me that they don't correct their own like Copeland who distorts the biblical Christ.
