Rob Bell vs. Andrew Wilson

Rob Bell vs. Andrew Wilson on homosexuality and the bible. Pretty impressive argumentation from Andrew, both in terms of clarity and charity. Bell, however, employs a hermeneutic driven by personal preference and cultural expediency.

  1. Rob states; “This is why so many people don’t want to be part of the church.”
    God says, in Mathew 7:13-14; “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” (NIV)
    Am I taking this out of context or do these two versus speak to the view of accepting what the culture says is good in contrast to what God says is good? That the majority end up on the wide (meaning ‘easy’?) road that leads to destruction, but Jesus is telling us to not do that. He he is saying take the more difficult road – through the narrow gate.
    “Can the fact that a large majority of people think a “thing” is good make that “thing” suspect?
    You can’t go as far as to say that everything a majority of people believe is good, is in fact bad. One example is that I am sure you will find that a majority of people on the planet believe murder is bad.)

  2. Don’t be too quick to judge Rob Bell’s motives. On what basis do you suggest that his interpretation of Scripture and God’s Will is untruthful and insincere? Merely because you disagree?

  3. Interesting how one can invalidate the law of Moses and the inspiration of Paul, but he hangs his whole understanding of this issue on whether Jesus had anything to say about the issue. And yet he did say something about this when he referred to God’s original design in Genesis 1:27. Isn’t it the enemy’s goal to disconnect us from any of the first principles God set in place with our origins?
