Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for Us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!” He said, “Go and tell this people: ‘Be ever hearing, but never understanding; be ever seeing, but never perceiving.’ Make the heart of this people calloused; make their ears dull and close their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts, and turn and be healed.” (Isaiah 6:8-10)

The Putrid Fruit Of The Emergent Rebellion Against The Bible

This is offered as yet another example of the smarmy sarcastic and decidedly unchristian attitudes of these so-called “Christ Followers” currently being produced by the man-centered non-gospel of Rob Bell and other cult leaders within the new cult of liberalism the Emergent Church. I receive letters like this on nearly a daily basis here at Apprising Ministries.

Herein is yet another example of what is happening as wolves in sheep’s clothing like Brian McLaren and Tony Jones are allowed to warp young minds in the Name of Christ. Since this was unsolicited testimony and offered to my “affiliates” as well–one of whom is Ingrid Schlueter at Slice of Laodicea–one can only assume that someone like Kasey was making what is considered a very important statement to them.

And indeed it most certainly is, but not quite in the way they may have intended. Hear me, invite Rob Bell and his warped and toxic teachings into your evangelical church through his spiritually poisoned Nooma videos and you had better get yourself prepared for a youth group full of Christ following “Kaseys”:

Pastor Silva & affiliates,

I wanted to send you a letter of thanks. Several months ago I first attended Rob Bell’s Mars Hill Church in Grandville at my younger brother’s urgent invitation. I left the feeling very confused and skeptical – it’s been a long time since I had been in church, having grown up and left the evangelical upbringing of my past.

Sitting in that service, I couldn’t believe what I was hearing – I had always been skeptical of pastors before, because so many of them seem to be hypocrites. I doubted the sincerity of Bell’s convictions and wondered whether or not he was just an act – you know, the old “soften back-sliders up to bring them back, then lower the boom” trick, if you will.

It was only after reading article after article after article of Pastor Silva’s that I the whole picture came into focus on exactly who Rob Bell really is. Because if someone such as yourself is writing criticisms against him – he’s okay in my book (emphasis his). I guess if anyone is fit to write about cults and fanaticism – it would be a leader within the SBC. You all would know.

Thanks to you – I plan to return to Mars Hill again and again and again. I may not believe everything he says, but unlike the radical muslim (sic) – oopps (sic), sorry, I meant “Christian” (sic) – h*******t you spew, he at least gives one room and respect to breathe and contemplate. And that’s what Jesus would do.
