Therefore, having this ministry by the mercy of God, we do not lose heart. But we have renounced disgraceful, underhanded ways. We refuse to practice cunning or to tamper with God’s word, but by the open statement of the truth we would commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience in the sight of God. And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled only to those who are perishing.

In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,”has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
(2 Corinthians 4:1-6)

Only The Disgraceful Will Obscure Their Message

As an online apologetics and discernment work Apprising Ministries would have you know it is truly an incontrovertible fact that one of tge major voices of the sinfully ecumenical neo-liberal cult of the Emergent Church aka the Emerging Church is its original iconic rock star pastor Rob Bell.

You may know that Bell’s co-teaching pastor at Mars Hill Bible Church (MHBC) is his good friend, and fellow heretic, Shane Hipps. I say again, evangelicals made a tragic mistake embracing such as these, thereby igniting a very rapid penetration of apostasy into the heart of it’s own younger sectors.

They are only beginning to pay the cost of infecting their own young with the postmodern form of Progressive Christianity derived from the demonic practices involved with the corrupt  Contemplative Spirituality/Mysticism (CSM) spewed by the Living Spiritual Teacher and Quaker mystic Richard Foster and his spiritual twin, Southern Baptist minister Dallas Willard.

Now the mind-numbing effects of CSM have irreparably altered the theology and ministry of Rob Bell and this once expository preacher of the Bible has become so deluded that he had no problem when an unbelieving pagan Muslim women was invited to the communion table over which he was presiding this past Sunday. [1]

O, that’s not the worst of it; it turns out the Muslim woman refused because she had more commitment to her faith than Bell and Hipps et al have for theirs. But that’s not the worst of it; Hipps would actually go on to defend this lunacy in the Lord’s Name:

And even that’s not the worst of it; no, that would be when AM broke this story—after first tipping Chris Rosebrough of Pirate Christian Radio to it—this spiritual act of hate barely even made the smallest of a ripple within the nearly spiritually comatose evanjellyfish community of the visible church.

Yes, I very much meant to say this was an act of spiritual terrorism. It is most clearly written in God’s Word concerning the sacrament of Holy Communion:

Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty concerningthe body and blood of the Lord. Let a person examine himself, then, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup.

For anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment on himself. That is why many of you are weak and ill, and some have died.
(1 Corinthians 11:27-30)

Christ died even for the Muslim woman’s sin of idolatry and yet these fools Bell and Hipps—and that’s putting it mildly—actually withheld the Gospel from her; and instead, they were willing to let her bring further judgment upon herself. As I said, evangelicalism is only now beginning to see the casting off of restraints.

I tell you in the Lord that such as these have cast off the fear of the LORD and have become fools [who] despise wisdom and instruction (Proverbs 1:7). Despite their practice of Contemplative/Centering Prayer (CCP), i.e. transcendental meditation in an altered state of consciousness, they have no prophetic vison from God (cf. Proverbs 29:18).

As I close this out, for now, I’ll remind you again that Shane Hipps and Rob Bell are so deep in deception that—like all messed up mystics—they believe God already dwells, not only within man, but within all of creation. That’s why Rob Bell argues for the position of Christian Universalism in his latest book of spritual fiction.

Well, below you’ll see Phil Johnson completely, and totally, just obliterate the Love Wins mythology of Rob Bell; and he really does it quite easily, merely by preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ…
