A Response To The Book, LOVE WINS by Rob Bell

with 2 comments

Lately I’ve been working on writing a response to Rob Bell’s new book title Love Win’s.  For those who haven’t read the book, it’s a book that questions the existence of Hell and make a mockery of the Word of God.  I finished my response and have posted it onto a stand alone website.  Here’s the website address:


It is my hope that God will use what I have written to save people from the deception that is being promoted in his book.  As I’ve looked at other blogs that are discussing Rob Bell’s book, I have been amazed at how many people agree with what Bell has written.  It is clearly a sign that many today, who call themselves Christians, do not read the bible.  I have tried in my response to keep it as simple as possible in hopes of showing even the newest believer that they can read the Word of God in context and not be deceived.

If you know anyone who has either read LOVE WINS, or who has heard of Rob Bell, or who has been affected by Emergent teaching, then I encourage you to forward them what I have written.  May the Lord use what I have written to help keep other from the deception being promoted in the book Love Win’s.

IN Christ,
Sean Scott

God shows us how we can live without fear. “There is no fear in love; but
perfect love casteth out fear…” (1 John 4:18). In short, if we are living
in fear, we are ignorant of perfect love. John is not saying, “Perfect love
for God casts out all fear,” and he isn’t speaking of unwavering love or
mature love in Christians, as some interpreters suggest. That isn’t where
perfect love begins for true believers.

Certainly, we love God, a fact that is beyond doubt. But consider what John
says about perfect love earlier in the chapter. “If we love one another, God
dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us” (4:12, my italics).
According to John, the first consideration of perfect love is unconditional
love for our brothers and sisters in Christ.

A Christian can say that he loves God, that he is doing the Lord’s will, that
he is faithfully performing the work of the kingdom. Such a person may be a
worshipper and even a teacher of the Word. But if he holds a grudge or speaks
against another—if he shuts out anyone in the body of Christ—he walks in
darkness, and a spirit of death is on him. All life, all good works, are out of
order in this person. Consider what John says of him: “He that saith he is in
the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now” (1 John

If you are interested in living a life without fear, John tells us there is a
way to do so. Indeed, there is a perfect love that drives out all fear and this
is the first step we must take: “Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to
love one another” (1 John 4:11). Yes, we must first deal with our
relationships in the body of Christ.

According to John we are commanded to love others as Christ loved us in order
for love to be perfected in us. What is meant by this kind of love? It is more
than forgiveness, much more. It means to forgive all transgressions toward us
and then offer our fellowship. We are to esteem the ones who sinned against us
as highly as we do other members of the body. When we let God’s love dwell in
us and perfect us, all fear will be cast out.
