'Love Wins' Author Rob Bell Supports Gay Marriage
CBNNews.com Tuesday, March 19, 2013
Rob Bell, the former "rock star" pastor of Michigan's Mars Hill Bible Church, has come out in support of same-sex marriage.
Speaking during a forum at San Francisco's Grace Cathedral Monday, Bell said the ship of traditional marriage "has sailed."
"Yes, I am for marriage. I am for fidelity. I am for love, whether it's a man and woman, a woman and a woman, a man and a man," he said. "I think this is the world we are living in and we need to affirm people wherever they are." Listen to the full audio of Bell's comments here.
Bell suggested that instead of transforming the world, a "ghettoized, Evangelical subculture" has instead turned people away from Christ.
"I think that when you're in a part of a subculture that is dying, you make a lot more noise because it's very painful. You sort of die or you adapt. And if you adapt, it means you have to come face to face with some of the ways we've talked about God, which don't actually shape people into more loving, compassionate people," he reasoned.
"We have supported policies and ways of viewing the world that are actually destructive. And we've done it in the name of God and we need to repent," he said.
It's not the first time Bell has made waves in evangelical Christian circles. In 2011, Bell caused controversy with his book Love Wins, in which he challenged traditional Christian views of Heaven and Hell.
(Who the heck is Rob Bell?)
Man and a boy? Hey, why not....isn't that "love" too, Rob?
Why only two? Why not three people? Why not 5? Why not two guys and a sheep? Sheesh.
“said the ship of traditional marriage “has sailed.” “
Without him on board apparently.
This guy is a true piece of work. I believe in a very real place called Hell, Mr. Bell. And rest-assured, you’re heading straight there the way you pervert Christianity to fit your own demented perceptions.
We have twisted the Bible to use it for destructive ends? Tell me, you K-Mart excuse for a Christian, how exactly can God’s words on homosexual sex be ‘reinterpreted’? They seemed pretty damn clear last time I checked. Christianity doesn’t ‘evolve’. What the hell do you think it is? A dumbass Chicago politician masquerading as a president? Christianity is eternal. Some things have been added to it over the years, but the foundations are unmoving. By your cracked logic, if you lived in Mexico, you’d denounce ‘Thou Shalt Not Murder” because Mexico is rife with murder, and its become accepted as an everyday occurrence. Do you see what an idiot you are? No, I guess not, because you’ll probably never read this, just like you’ve probably never read the Bible, or any book about the Christian faith. Go ahead though. Dance like a freak for all the leftists. They find the hollow nature of your cheap ‘evolving’ faith amusing. I just find it physically sickening.
I’m throwing all his books in the fireplace tonight! (that is if I had any, and if I had a working fireplace.
In other news Rob Bell rejects the doctrine of original sin, and the hell that comes with a hearded heart to Jesus sacrifice and freedom that comes with it.
Heterosexual marriages are bad enough at fidelity.
It is basically impossible with homosexuals.
If Satan took over Philadelphia, all of the bars would be closed, pornography banished, and pristine streets would be filled with tidy pedestrians who smiled at each other. There would be no swearing. The children would say, Yes, sir and No, maam, and the churches would be full every Sunday . . . where Christ is not preached.
-Donald Grey Barnhouse
Sorry, but you cannot support the Abomination of Sodomy, and still be an Evangelical, because you are no longer a Christian.
When you support sin, you are no longer Christ-like, you’ve agreed with the enemy of your soul, the Devil.

If it involves fecal matter, it’s not marital.
Ask not for whom the Bell tolls.....
