Reformed Heart posted this video on youtube , and apart from a wrongful linking of Brian McLaren and Rob Bell to the message that is being spoken in the background, it is pretty interesting. I am not sure who the voice is in the background, but the only other person I have heard talk ‘like this’, meaning in person, is John Piper. And as my friend Nicholas Fiedler said of the same talk which we later found out we were both at, ‘it was scary!’ (paraprhase). Nicholas, clear me up on what you really thought…
So yeah, its interesting, but if it leads to a theological processing likened to what Piper has been saying about the Minnesota bridge collapse, ummm…umm..well, just look at Greg Boyd’s blog response here. Not advocating..just processing. It is a tragedy in the community of each Pastor. Yet each seems to have handled it differently from their understanding of God. Isn’t the diversity beautiful?
What do you think, is this a fair treatment of Brian and Rob? I can’t speak for Olsteen and Meyer; however, i guess it was good for me to see that Rick Warren has personally focussed even more on mission in a ‘different way’ in Africa, and he thanks is wife for that. Plus, he is also a friend of Obama😉 and has had to defent it. YES!
let me hear from you..what do you think about the video..or the bridges…or..?
