The Unraveling of Rob Bell

In the new book "Love Wins" Rob Bell presents the old heresy of Universalism in a new wrapping.  it is amazing how well Bell answers questions without really saying anything of substance.  Bashir (interviwer) pegs it when he says:

“You’re creating a Christian message that’s warm, kind, and popular for contemporary culture. . . . What you’ve done is you’re amending the gospel, the Christian message, so that it’s palatable to contemporary people who find, for example, the idea of hell and heaven very difficult to stomach. So here comes Rob Bell, he’s made a Christian gospel for you, and it’s perfectly palatable, it’s much easier to swallow. That’s what you’ve done, haven’t you?”
