Rob Bell and Universalism

I am a bit late to the party since the blow up happened last weekend and I am just getting caught up today, but the debate is not going to be a short term phenomenon.  Rob Bell, Pastor of Mars Hill Bible Church (not to be confused with Mark Driscoll’s Mars Hill Church) released a video talking about his new book.  Take a look:

That video has caused commotion in the internet world and this subject is destined to be the single biggest evangelical topic for 2011.

Christianity Today published this article about the goings on with Rob Bell and how people are reacting to it.  John Piper issued a short tweet saying goodbye to Rob Bell (it is linked in the CT article).  So what is the big deal?

The big deal is whether everyone can or will be saved.  That’s it.

I can’t wait for Rob’s book to come out and we let the Christian community get involved in the discussion.  This is going to be good.  As far as me, I currently believe that all people have salvation through Jesus and it is not predicated on knowing him.

Update 1 – Wow, check out this article from ABC. (Is that the same ABC we have in the states?)  It gives you an idea of the magnitude of Rob’s announcement and impact.  Please read it.
