Question of the day: Bell & Hell.
Last week while I was reading one of the blogs I’m subscribed to I came across an interesting paragraph in one of her articles. I asked her if I could use it for this week’s QOTD post, to which she was most gracious to oblige.
With all the buzz that’s going about Rob Bell and his new book “Love Wins,” there’s no wonder people are starting to question the two destinations of eternity. So, what do we say to people who are struggling with knowing what is true and what is not? What can you say to this fellow blogger to help with her uncertainty?
Here’s what she wrote last week…
“Lately I’ve been struggling with believing in Hell or not. I know I’ve read the recently debated book “Love Wins” by Rob Bell. I know there’s a camp of believers that don’t believe in Universal Salvation. I know to believe that everybody makes it into Heaven is seen as making the work of the cross void. They wonder that if everyone makes it in the end then what was the point of Jesus dying on the cross? I think being raised to believe in Hell and then to hear the other side of the possible Gospel message is tough. When one view is so ingrained in your brain that to wrap your head around the other concept is a challenge. I think all these differing view points are making my head hurt.”
Any thoughts to share with her?
Opinions on the matter?
Scripture to support your ideas?
