Rob Bell Suggests Bible Not Relevant to Today’s Culture

Former Mars Hill church Pastor Rob Bell has been raising a lot of eyebrows for his evolving views about Christianity and the Bible.

Bell and his wife, Kristen, recently appeared with Oprah Winfrey on her “Super Soul Sunday” program, where he suggested the Bible is irrelevant to today’s culture.

“We’re moments away. I think the culture is already there. And the church will continue to be even more irrelevant when it quotes letters from 2,000 years ago as their best defense,” he told Winfrey when asked about the Church embracing gay marriage.

ROB BELL GETS HIS “OWN” TV SHOW DEC. 21

OWN television has just announced the premiere of its new series titled, The Rob Bell Show. The same Rob Bell who challenges the truth of the Bible and continues to influence millions of fans around the world (having just returned from a national tour with New Agers Deepak Chopra and Oprah), despite his fall from biblical Christianity. The same former pastor of Mars Hill church who denies the doctrine of a real Hell (making him a heretic in the true sense of the word). He is the author of many books pushing unScriptural doctrine including Velvet Elvis, Love Wins and his new The Zimzum of Love, giving people a “startling new way of looking at marriage.” (Bell has come out in support of homosexual marriage.)
Bell debuted on OWN for Winfrey’s “Super Soul Sunday” program in Nov. 2013 to discuss his latest book, What We Talk About When We Talk About God, which was her premiere pick for the “Oprah’s Super Soulful Book of the Month.”

As the spiritual mud thickens, the direction of once prominent emerging church leaders becomes more clear…

The following is an update to a previous blog posting here at Muddy Streams called Oprah’s New Agey Introduction of Rob Bell and his New Agey Message.

This past weekend, former evangelical pastor Rob Bell and former television icon Oprah wrapped up their national 8-city “Oprah’s The Life You Want Weekend” New Age tour. Joining Bell and Oprah on the tour were other two New Age sympathizers – Deepak Chopra and Elizabeth Gilbert (Eat, Pray, Love). There was a time, not too many years ago, when Bell’s best-selling book Velvet Elvis was being read by millions of young evangelicals, and the book was touted by Christian leaders and college professors. It was a disaster in discernment in the church as even back then Bell was promoting the New Age. . .

NOW OPRAH VIEWERS CAN MEET A WITCH, PRACTICE A RITUAL CIRCLE

Let me start by saying that Christians LOVE the sticky mess that Soul Pancake and Oprah are. The biggest Emergent leadership conference, Catalyst, hosted Soul Pancake creator Rainn Wilson recently so that young upcoming leaders could incorporate this mind-boggling spirituality into their Christian teachings. And we reported last year that Oprah Winfrey’s anything-goes “Soul Pancake” spirituality channel is now promoting “Past Life Regression” therapy. This is nothing more than the Buddhist teachings of reincarnation. Yet Christians in her audience see no problem with this. And don’t even get us started on Oprah’s new tour with apostate heretic Rob Bell.

But witchcraft?

Oprah Winfrey, unofficial spokesman for New Age Movement’s alternative spirituality[1], has listed Rob Bell’s new book, What We Talk About When We Talk About God, on “Oprah’s Super Soulful Book of the Month” club. Oprah says that Bell is “shaking up the way we think about God and religion.”

“When I first started reading it, I was highlighting my favorite passages, but then I realized — what’s the point? I’ve marked every page! It just wowed me. In the book, Bell explains that God is and always has been with us, for us, and ahead of us — and then explores how we can really absorb this knowledge into our everyday lives to become more connected to spirit.”

“They are from the world; therefore they speak as from the world, and the world listens to them… By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.” 1 John 4:6,7
