One thought on “Love Wins, by Rob Bell

  1. I thought of this yesterday: As Christians, “We are not in the business of issues. We are in the business of people.”

    “Who’s in — who’s out” is an issue. As such, it need not concern us as disciples — or as Disciples. Grace and reconciliation are states of being that honor both the validity of individuals and the validity of humanity as a cohesive organism. Bell’s take cuts to the heart of what it means to be in the people business, and that makes everyone who is in the business of issues necessarily nervous. Perhaps those embroiled in the furor should reflect upon how much time they are spending with what God hates, instead of how much God loves.
