We've added more video and more context to some of the videos so that you can get a more complete picture of what Bell said and the context in which he made those comments.
Rob Bell shared the stage today with "his holiness" the Dalai Lama during an InterSpiritual panel discussion at the Seeds of Compassion conference.
Bell's defenders claimed that he would be a voice for Christianity at this event. But, right out of the box Bell's comments accomplished nothing more than blend with the ooooie goooie non-sensical one world spirituality that was being promoted at this event.
Here was Bell's opening remarks. Pay close attention to Bell's spiritual platitudes. Notice that he merely says that love, forgiveness and compassion are a 'better way'. It sounds nice. It sounds spiritual. But without Christ these thoughts have no meaning. There is nothing distinctly Christian about what Bell says.
In the next video Rob Bell answers the question that a twelve year old boy asked. Here was his question...
"What can I do to not be so hard on myself when I make a mistake?"
If Bell were giving a Christian answer then he should have mentioned the forgiveness of sins won by Jesus Christ on the cross. Here was Rob Bell's answer...
In this third video pay close attention to how Bell allegorizes death and resurrection so that it can fit neatly and inoffensively into the generic one-world spirituality being promoted at this event.
This final video gives more context regarding the 'spirituality' that was being promoted at this event.
Please watch the entire event video so that you can see these comments in their full context. You will find that this event taught that all religions have the same essence and a one world spirituality AND Rob Bell, by his presence and lack of saying anything that was distinctly Christian and because he didn't even mention Jesus Christ and His crucifixion for the sins of the world (the gospel) appeared to be in agreement with the other speakers.
