Rob Bell and humility where God has spoken

Will everybody be saved, or will some perish apart from God forever because of

their choices? Those are questions, or more accurately, those are tensions we are

free to leave fully intact. We don’t need to resolve them or answer them because

we can’t, and so we simply respect them, creating space for the freedom that love


Rob Bell, Love Wins, (115)

Here’s the problem: Scripture answers the question and the only humble thing to do is to believe what the omniscient God has revealed. Not to believe the omniscient God’s revelation (to say, we ‘can’t’ answer these questions) is astonishing hubris on the part of a finite and fallen creature.
