Oh Rob…(if any of you were old enough to remember the Dick VanDyke show you might find that to be a funny title…)

A Rob Bell Quote:

“Heaven is full of forgiven people. Hell is full of forgiven people. Heaven is full of people God loves, whom Jesus died for. Hell is full of forgiven people God loves, whom Jesus died for. The difference is how we choose to live, which story we choose to live in, which version of reality we trust. Ours or God’s.”

There goes Rob’s invite to speak on the “L” in TULIP, at the international conference on Calvinism 🙂

“I can’t find one place in the teachings of Jesus, or the Bible for that matter, where we are to identify ourselves first and foremost as sinners. Now this doesn’t mean we don’t sin; that’s obvious. In the book of James it’s written like this: ‘We all stumble in many ways.’ Once again, the greatest truth of the story of Adam and Eve isn’t that it happened, but that it happens. We all make choices to live outside of how God created us to live. We have all come up short.”

Oops there goes the “T”. I jest 🙂 I just posted this for the two dorks who will get it (me and my boy Edogwakemazzile)

Serious stuff is coming on the interplay of Rabbinic thought, Judaism and Christianity, interacting with Stan Telachin’s book “Some Say: Messianic Judaism is not Christianity…” and how it relates to the Mars Hill Bible Church Torah phenomenon. So that should be interesting.

    So, so funny. I can’t stop laughing! I love the “Our’s is God’s” bit too. ???
    Looking through the old archives. I think Joe Martino sited you from one of these.

    I do not know Joe Martino…but one of the letters he received is from my Brother-in-laws nephew…(Matt Dubois), from when my brother-in-law was on staff at Mecca Hill.

    So what did he site?
