QUESTIONING LOVE WINS
Part Three: Personal Salvation
In Part 2 of my book review of Love Wins, I wrote about Bell’s “expansive salvation.” I applauded Bell’s emphasis that God’s salvation includes the entire cosmos. However, unfortunately, in Bell’s zealousness to promote the wide scope of God’s salvation, he minimizes personal salvation. In this review, Part 3, I address Bell’s teaching concerning personal salvation to show you what I mean.
In this review, I address 5 questions: Does Bell have a theology of sin? Does Bell affirm that Jesus is the only way a person can be saved? How are people saved through Jesus Christ? What does Bell say about personal salvation and heaven? Does the personal hope of heaven mean ministry inactivity on earth?
