Even though this post is already linked to Justin Taylor’s site, I felt it important enough to duplicate the post here for several reasons: (1) Rob Bell’s ministry is a rising phenomena in the Western church, and for this reason it is imperative that believers discern his message and understanding of the gospel rightly; (2) too often in the West Christian “cool” takes primacy over gospel-fidelity; (3) Pastors have a responsibility to guard the flock from false doctrine and wolves (even sincere wolves); and (4) Greg Gilbert’s critique of the critically-acclaimed Nooma video series is humble, thorough, fair and informative. Though lengthy, I encourage you to read both review 1 and 2 (of 3) by Gilbert, as well as CJ Mahaney’s excellent post about godly discernment.
