Rob Bell and Andrew Wilson Debate Homosexuality

Post image for Rob Bell and Andrew Wilson Debate Homosexuality

Rob Bell and Andrew Wilson debate the acceptability of homosexuality within Christianity on the Unbelievable Radio Program. The Bell – Wilson exchange below is fascinating – fascinating because Bell never directly answers Wilson’s question about the biblical foundation for accepting homosexuality in the church.

Bell makes general statements about Scriptural interpretation without naming general Scripture. Toward the end of the video, Bell makes emotional appeals about Christian fellowship around the disagreements over homosexuality.

Bell says he and Wilson are brothers and would take the Lord’s Supper together. Wilson doesn’t say whether or not he would break bread with Bell.

Check out the exchange – would you break bread with Bell as a brother? Why or why not?

Thank you for posting this conversation which served as my introduction to Andrew Wilson.  I will be looking for more from him now.  Wilson remained focused and articulate as he exposed Rob Bell’s aberrant theological innovations.   Wasn’t it interesting to watch how uncomfortable and increasingly defensive Bell grew at Wilson’s polite insistence on clarity?  Bell ended up retreating into a bunker of mud-slinging, which included vulgarity unsuitable for Christian discourse.  He desperately clutches onto an association with the Faith whose tenets he despises, but without which I suspect he would have neither public voice, nor livelihood.

I wouldn’t advise that Rob take the Lord’s Supper in my church, no. He has unrepentant sin, and I question his salvation. If he ignored and decided to eat and drink, I think he would be doing so to his own condemnation.

NickHorton1 Agreed.

Cathy M What a great way to put it! Wilson certainly remained calm and continued seeking clarity.

Thanks Mark for posting this. Bell even had to acknowledge that Wilson articulated his postion well, as he ended the interview with “that’s well said.” This is a matter of serious concern for me, since I am on the front lines of this as NAMB endorsed Army Chaplain. The homosexual debate is rapidly moving from the secular conversation and into the ecclesiastical realm. This is where those who hold to the biblical convictions of sexuality will really have to be sharp and stand firm. Wilson shows us how its done in this discourse with Bell.

m b woodside Thanks for dropping by. Do you think the new NAMB rules will affect your position as a Chaplain? If so, how?
