A Commentary by IndyWatchman (Steve Blackwell)
“Warning!! Love Wins, by Rob Bell”
Every marketer knows that it is the headline or title that causes most people to read news papers, or buy books. Advertisers will tell you that the most important thing when advertising is the headline. Pick up a Readers Digest, they have mastered the “headline.”
Rob Bell knows this also. LOVE WINS, A Book About Heaven, Hell, and the Fate of Every Person Who
Ever Lived. Who can argue with the title of Rob’s new book? What sect of Christianity, or any religion, would deny that Love wins in the end? The question comes down to the definition of “love” and where that definition comes from.
In the sixties we were bombarded with “love,” and we have seen what that experiment has produced; a whole generation of babies murdered in the womb. Today, love is in the air once again, and Rob Bell has captured the essence of this love fest by making scandalous claims against God. He has put words into the mouth of God that are pure and simple lies; Rob has made God a liar. Rob’s definition of love has been plucked out of thin air, and can nowhere be found in the document given to us by God Himself. Rob’s definition of love comes not from the Living God, so it must come from another source. Where, or who, might that source be. There is only one other source; if it is not from Heaven then, it is from Hell; if it is not God, then it is Satan. This is a trustworthy saying, because it comes from the Book of Truth, the Bible, God’s own words. Read more: http://www.indywatchman.com/apostacy/warning-love-wins-by-rob-bell/
