The social media world has been abuzz over Rob Bell’s upcoming book on salvation called Love Wins. The book isn’t even out yet and all anyone has to go by is a brief video clip where Rob Bell discusses some of the big questions about salvation – he doesn’t actually make any statement at all – he just frames a variety of questions about the issue. Check out Christianity Today for the video.
The arguments of religious men are so often insincere, and their insincerity is proportionate to their anger. Why do we get angry about what we believe? Because we do not really believe it. Or else what we pretend to be defending as the “truth” is really our own self-esteem. A man of sincerity is less interested in defending the truth than in stating it clearly, for he thinks that if the truth be clearly seen it can very well take care of itself.
