I knew people back around 2005 who grew tired of a condemning breed of preaching in their city. Looking for answers, they drove an hour to learn from Rob Bell. At least they were attending certified Sunday, right?
A few years later, many of them turned their backs on all belief in Jesus, giving many arguments that seemed to come from Rob. Things might have gone differently if they had quit attending Sunday mornings altogether. Maybe today they’d be nominal “churchless Christians”.
But, Sunday morning fiefdom lords must rubber stamp each other, no matter who they stamp, no matter the cost.
