Rob Bell once the evangelical poster boy, mega church hip pastor ~ the one time darling of tens of thousands will host “The Rob Bell Show” premiering December 21 on the Oprah Winfrey Network. The one-hour show features Bell and is co-produced by him. He recently toured the country with Winfrey on a “Life You Want Weekend.”

“In many ways, some elements of typical evangelicalism are a good fit for Oprah’s lineup of public confession and personal transformation,” said Kathryn Lofton, author of ‘Oprah: The Gospel of an Icon.’ “The difference, however, is that The Church of Oprah incorporates as many religious concepts as possible, while evangelicalism commits to exclusivity. He won’t talk about the cross, or sin, or the idea that marriage represents Jesus and his bride or God and Israel. So he’s not a Bible Christian, but really a Christian, our new kind of Christian. Our ‘evogelical.’ ”

Speaking of Oprah, Bell said: “She has taught me more about what Jesus has for all of us, and what kind of life Jesus wants us to live, more than almost anybody in my life.”
 
“Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God; but exhort one another daily, while it is called 'Today,' lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. 'For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end.…”  Hebrews 4:12-14

  1. Oprah has been responsible for leading more people to hell than just about anyone else. She has had an audience of millions around the world for years (should have reached trillions of people by now), and she deceives them with New Age teachings presented as Christianity. Now Rob Bell can add to those deceptive teachings. They will get what they deserve in the end.

  2. What a great opportunity both were given to share The Truth with this lost and dying world. Tragically, both chose the wide path.
