Say “rock star of the Christian church” around any of my friends, and I’ll bet at least half of them would mention the sarcastically winking “Buddy Christ” from Kevin Smith’s Dogma, and another half might quote that episode of King of the Hill where Hank tells a Christian rock band, “You’re not making Christianity any better, you’re just making rock ’n’ roll worse.” But in certain circles, Rob Bell — founding pastor of Mars Hill Bible Church and current rock star of Christianity — is controversial for other reasons. He’s seen as a heretic among many evangelicals, who view his teachings as dangerous and anti-Christian. After reading through several of his books — including 2012’s Love Wins, where he argues that the traditional Christian view of Hell is flawed — and watching a trailer for his new book where he compares old ideas about Christianity to junky Oldsmobiles, all I can say is … I totally get it. Depending on your point of view, Bell could easily be either a powerful teacher, a heretical false prophet, or irrelevant, as Friendly Atheist blogger Hemant Mehta puts it: “Arguing about whether or not Hell exists is like arguing over whether a unicorn is white or pink. It doesn’t make a damn bit of difference because the whole premise is faulty to begin with.” Which side are you on?
