I got to say, I love it when false teachers and dare I say, the “H” word, Hhhhhhhheretics condemn criticism and promote love and support by you know…criticizing others. Come on daddio, chill out and relax…I am just saying, lower your standards and let’s talk about it and have an open dialogue.
“The right wing of Evangelicalism will, I imagine, require people to answer the “Bell question,” and in so doing, pass or fail the latest litmus test. Those who fail will be purged - which appears to be the purpose of John Piper’s already-infamous tweet, “Farewell, Rob Bell.” (Fare “well?” - is this a sign of sympathy? It could have been - “You’re going to hell, Rob Bell!” - Ah, perhaps John Piper is a closet universalist too? - Just kidding, of course.) Many, subjected to these litmus tests, will capitulate and throw Rob under the bus, even though in their heart they think he’s onto something. Others will try to stake out a pseudo-middle position, respectable with conservatives without being needlessly mean-spirited towards Rob, but they’ll make sure to distance themselves from him. Hopefully more than a few who in the end disagree will do so in a fair, honest, charitable way, having truly and openly considered what Rob is proposing…”
John Piper is a “right wing”? I have never known John Piper to get caught up in politics…Ooohhhhh that is Brian’s way of saying, “literalist” but “right wing” has such a negative connotation not to mention inaccurate but he just couldn’t resist the jab. Therefore he is lying…I mean I am not calling him a liar…just saying that it’s possible, I mean we can talk about it even have a dialogue about his lying.
Wow! Mr. Brian is finding it sad and unloving even disingenuous that people are not attempting to understand Mr. Rob Bell but to only criticize him and yet…correct me if I am wrong but isn’t Brian Mclaren doing the same? Heh! I am just saying
