The false teachers and apostatizers of the Christian faith continue to emerge in America and lead a following after them towards the judgment of God. The most recent evidence of this comes from a false teacher who is not new to heresy. Rob Bell and his wife have now endorsed the abomination of sodomy, claiming that the Church is “just moments away from accepting” the redefinition of marriage to include God-hating sodomites.
Bell told modern day racist and provocateur Oprah Winfrey that the time is “close” to the Church embracing what God calls an abomination and for which He utterly destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah (Gen. 19).
Bell says that such acceptance of sodomites by the Church is “inevitable.”
Bell made the statement during a Valentine’s weekend episode of Winfrey’s “Super Soul Sunday” television show where he appeared with his wife, Kristen, to discuss marriage and their new book, The ZimZum of Love: A New Way of Understanding Marriage.
The same-sex marriage discussion portion of the episode, which can be viewed below, starts at around the 29-minute mark where Kristen begins reading an excerpt from the book.
“Marriage, gay and straight, is a gift to the world because the world needs more not less love, fidelity, commitment, devotion and sacrifice,” she noted.
Winfrey then tells the couple that she thought it was great that they made a conscious choice to include gay marriage in the book, and asked them why?
“One of the oldest aches in the bones of humanity is loneliness,” replied Rob Bell. “Loneliness is not good for the world. Whoever you are, gay or straight, it is totally normal, natural and healthy to want someone to go through life with. It’s central to our humanity. We want someone to go on the journey with.”
Friends, how do I say this? This is straight out of Hell, period. There is no “new” way to understand marriage. Marriage is a covenant between a man and a woman for life. Anything else is not marriage.
Bell asked when the Church is going to get that loneliness is not good for the world and said that if the Church doesn’t embrace the redefinition of marriage to include the abomination, it will “continue to be even more irrelevant.
The Church has not become irrelevant because it doesn’t embrace a redefining of marriage or acceptance of what is abominable before God. The Church is irrelevant when it takes on the manifestation of what Bell is promoting. After all, Bell is not conforming the world and sinners to the Bible or the image of Jesus Christ (Rom. 8:28ff), but the world is conforming him to it. He has, therefore, become the friend of the world and the enemy of God (1 Jn.
Perhaps, if Bell spent more time reading and studying Scripture, he would have offered sodomites the biblical answer concerning loneliness and marriage.
