This Rob Bell is popular. He speaks in his own "church", and he goes about and speaks all over. How can this guy be popular? He is void of any meaning to me. Yes he talks about Jesus' death and resurrection, but he seems to me, he is trying to impress, and come from a cool angle, or something. He really doesn't speak pure and simple, so that one can understand.
The death of Christ was for me, a filthy sinner; He shed His precious innocent blood for my cursed and guilty soul. And He rose from the dead on the the third day for me. What a savior and God this is!
That is the Gospel; the good news for sinners, and for people under God's wrath, who are all of us; all humans.
This guy is empty to me. Let me know what you think, if you don't mind.
And here's a preacher/teacher of the Scriptures, a Christian, who, for me, speaks the truth, clearly, with meaning, so that you can understand.
