There is no fear of God before his eyes. For he flatters himself in his own eyes that his iniquity cannot be found out and hated. The words of his mouth are trouble and deceit; he has ceased to act wisely and do good. (Psalm 36:1-3)

The Tragic Truth About Rob Bell And His Slide Into Apostasy

Apprising Ministries has told you before that when mainstream evangelicalism embraced the sinfully ecumenical neo-liberal cult of the Emergent Church aka the Emerging Church—with its“big tent” Progressive Christianity aka Emergence Christianity—and began using warped and toxic teachings of EC leaders like Emerging Church rock star pastor Rob Bell, it began poisoning its own young.

I’ve also told you the Trojan Horse of the Emerging Church launched a full frontal attack upon the proper Christian spirituality of sola Scriptura in order for it to advance its core doctrine of highly subjective Contemplative Spirituality/Mysticism (CSM) ala Living Spiritual Teacher and Quaker mystic Richard Foster, which is actually a centered on the self existentialism also advanced by Foster’s spiritual twin Dallas Willard.

Two years ago in Rob Bell And Christian Universalism I began to show you that Rob Bell is as much a universalist as his friends comprising the unholy EC trinity of apostates, Living Spiritual Teacher and EC guru Brian McLaren, universalist Emerging Church pastor Doug Pagitt, and his friend Tony Jones, the progressive “theologian in residence” at Solomon’s Porch.

Yesterday via a tip from Letter Of Marque I broke the story that in the video promo below for his new book Rob Bell Is Now Out Of The Closet For Universalism; and of course, his defenders immediately began whining this was “slander” blah, blah, blah, on my part. Well, now I point you to Rob Bell: Universalist? by Justin Taylor, who’s one the the safe “name” bloggers, so if he says it, then it’s got to be true:

It is unspeakably sad when those called to be ministers of the Word distort the gospel and deceive the people of God with false doctrine. But it is better for those teaching false doctrine to put their cards on the table (a la Brian McLaren) rather than remaining studiously ambiguous in terminology.

So on that level, I’m glad that Rob Bell has the integrity to be unambiguous about his universalism. Not just optimism about the fate of those who haven’t heard the Good News, but (as it seems from below) full-blown hell-is-empty-everyone-gets-saved universalism…

I haven’t seen the book yet and was hesitant to say something based on the publisher’s description (which usually isn’t written by the author). But this video from Bell himself shows that he is moving farther and farther away from anything resembling biblical Christianity… (Online source)

The Lord be praised for His grace, those who read Apprising Ministries knew of this five years ago.
