Rob Bell is not a universalist, and he can’t be if he is as committed to freedom as he says. Now to explain…
What “category” do you think Rob fits into when it comes to his view of how gets in and how many get into The Age to Come? Do you think there’s biblical grounds for “second chances”? What texts would you use in this discussion? Do you think it is right and good to hope for the salvation of all?
I will say this again: what Rob is asking in this question is one of the most important questions being asked today. Will God’s grace and love eventually compel all to turn to him or not?
Scot McKnight is probably the person doing the best job at having a respectful, balanced and fair discussion of Rob Bell’s new book. This post is definitely worth reading… THOUGHTS?
