GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - Controversial author and former pastor of Mars Hill Bible Church in Grandville came out in support of marriage equality during a forum March 17 in San Francisco.
During the forum at Grace Cathedral, an Episcopal church, Bell was asked about his position on gay marriage, and responded by saying, "I am for marriage. I am for fidelity. I am for love, whether it's a man and woman, a woman and a woman, a man and a man. I think the ship has sailed and I think the church needs -- I think this is the world we are living in and we need to affirm people wherever they are."

Surprise, surprise; heretic Rob Bell supporting homosexual “marriage”
“I am for love, whether it’s a man and woman, a woman and a woman, a man and a man.....a man and five women, a man and a sheep, and man and a pickup truck......”
He just lost the name “CHRISTIAN”!! What a FREAK SHOW our country has become...>FREAKS!
So, a “pastor” is saying we need to affirm people in their sin.
There’s a special judgement awaiting those who lead the sheep to their deaths.
what an absolute shame - his early stuff was promising - but this last book pooped the mattress
I would bet anything he comes out of the closet.
He has a cult like following in West
Michigan that’s pretty scary.
“I think this is the world we are living in and we need to affirm people wherever they are.””.................
So, he is a “Christian pastor” and he wants to affirm people in their sinfulness???? He is very very confused.
I struggle with sin every day...The last thing I need is a pastor telling me my sin is ok...
It's not a matter of not understanding the scriptures...It's a matter of just not believing...
It’s quite lovely for our politically correct times that he is for “marriage equality”, but his personal view is totally irrelevant to the Bible or to what Christians should do, support, or believe. Pretending that gay “marriage” is real marriage will not change reality, nor will it change God’s word. I am surprised that someone claiming to be a pastor would openly advocate that Christians ignore scripture.
It really is too bad that Bell wasn’t around at the time of Jesus so he could have put Him straight before His new religion took hold.
Then, Bell can NOT lay claim to being “Christian.” These passages make the issue rather clear:
1 Corinthians 6:9-11
1 Timothy 1:8-10
Amen brother you are so right!
I am not a Christian but I’m starting to lean that way.
The Bible has been around for a long, long time and it has obviously helped many people. Who am I to say it’s wrong? One thing I do understand is this - The Bible doesn’t care what’s popular and what isn’t. If something is wrong today it will still be wrong tomorrow. It doesn’t matter how anyone feels about it. To wake up one day and decide that on a particular issue we should discount everything that’s been taught is to call into question the entire teaching.
Seems he stopped himself before finishing his sentence. “I think the ship has sailed and I think the church needs — “ Sounds to me as if he was about to say the magic words of all progressives - “to get with the times.” So his Bible is written on an Etch-a-Sketch?
” I think the ship has sailed and I think the church needs”
Only a idiot says something like that. The only ship that has sailed is the one that God put in the water at the beginning of time.
Anything else is folly and foolishness.
I have prayed for you this morning that you will accept Jesus as your personal Saviour.

No accuracy in reporting anymore!
I doubt seriously he came out for marriage equality. He can out for homosexuals to marry. Not for 2 men and one women or 3 women and one man or brothers and sisters or fathers and daughters and on and on. Be accurate. Speak honestly!
Etch-a-Sketch.....I like that!!!
May I use that sometime in the future?
It’ll be in conjunction with another fave of mine..”cafeteria Catholic”.
