WARNING: Rob Bell is Dangerous

[UPDATE: Two very thoughtful & thorough reviews of Bell’s new book…from Denny Burk, Associate Professor of New Testament and Dean of Boyce College, the undergraduate arm of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky…and from Kevin DeYoung, Senior Pastor at University Reformed Church (RCA) in East Lansing, Michigan, right across the street from Michigan State University.]

The internet has been ablaze with debate centering on the soon to be released book by Rob Bell, “Love Wins.”  First, the video promoting the book has caused quite a reaction…

Universalism as a Lure? The Emerging Case of Rob Bell (by Dr. Albert Mohler)

And now we have our first review from someone who has read the book (to satisfy all the ‘wait-and-seers,’ who warned Bell might be orthodox on this one…

Love Wins – A Review of Rob Bell’s New Book (by Tim Challies)

Anyone wishing to give Rob Bell a pass on universalism owes William P. Young an apology.

As pastor, I am compelled by a love for you all as my church family to warn you of the dangers of false teachers who, while appearing like sheep…are actually ravenous wolves; for that is how Scripture describes false teachers like Bell, Young, Osteen, and others.

There are too many good preachers writing biblically solid books and preaching God-honoring sermons for us to wring our hands over dismissing what, though looking ‘cool’ or sounding ‘nice,’ is dangerously destructive heresy.
