Love Wins March 22, 2011

In case you weren’t sure what to think about Rob Bell’s new (and controversial) book, “Love Wins”, here is a good answer.  I found it personally helpful to just crystallize and clarify my thoughts.  The post ends with this powerful quote by one of my all-time favorite people, C.S. Lewis:

In the long run the answer to all those who object to the doctrine of hell is itself a question: ‘What are you asking God to do?’ To wipe out their past sins and, at all costs, to give them a fresh start, smoothing every difficulty and offering every miraculous help? But he has done so, on Calvary. To forgive them? They will not be forgiven. To leave them alone? Alas, I am afraid that is what he does.(The Great Divorce)

    I have wondered about that book too, and I must say, I like this guy’s response to it on his March 16th post.
