And Now You Know!


Some months back, when I called Rob Bell a heretic, I got a ton of hate mail calling me unloving, intolerant, a knuckle dragger unwilling to see beyond my own legalistic dogma, jealous, envious of another man’s success, and a few other choice things that I cannot repeat here lest children happen upon my blog.

Recently, Mister Bell pulled the mask off altogether and spewed a few more nuggets of worldly wisdom that has all of Christendom apoplectic, wondering why they couldn’t see the man for what he was sooner.

I’m not much for ‘I told you so’. Not to toot my own horn, but if I were a fan of the ‘I told you so’ fad, I’d spend half my waking hours telling people, ‘I told you so’.

That this man is still called a pastor is an outrage to reason and sensibility. That this man is still touted as a man of God is beyond the pale, and anyone calling themselves a Christian still defending his teaching should really consider visiting a mental health specialist sooner rather than later.

To answer the question that is on so many a mind, the question being how exactly Mister Bell could come to the conclusion that the church is a hair’s breadth away from embracing every vile and wicked act as being the embodiment of love, one must look at what he thinks of the Word of God, then look no further than that.

Since I do not want to be accused of putting words in Mister Bell’s mouth, I will quote verbatim his response to a question posed by yet another luminary of the modern day American Church and Spiritual movement, Oprah Winfrey, regarding what seems to be the gotcha topic of the moment, homosexual unions.

“I think culture is already there and the church will continue to be even more irrelevant when it quotes letters from 2,000 years ago as their best defense, when you have in front of you flesh-and-blood people who are your brothers and sisters, and aunts and uncles, and co-workers and neighbors, and they love each other and just want to go through life with someone.”

Bravo, well done, hip hip, you virtuous and brave defender of the faith, you. To call this man a pastor is like calling someone who mutilates cats in their basement a doctor. I’m sorry, I can’t do this anymore. Seriously! How much more idiocy must we put up with until there is a resounding chorus of ‘enough’ from the household of faith? Does anyone even care anymore? If no one else does, why should I?

As I said, one need only look at Mister Bell’s reply to understand how little he thinks of the God of the Bible, and the Bible itself. Rather than calling it the inerrant, infallible, absolute Word of God, Mister Bell refers to the Bible as simply letters from 2,000 years ago, chiding those who would quote it as less than intelligent individuals who are waging a losing battle. In his not so humble opinion, if your only defense for the position you hold is the Bible, then you are a fool, an imbecile, a clueless troglodyte who deserves to be segregated to some desert somewhere, where you can live out the rest of your days quoting 2,000 year old letters to others of your ilk. This man still calls himself a pastor and others refers to him as a pastor! I’m sorry I feel the need to reiterate this, but it’s just beyond me.

It is because he thinks of the Bible as nothing more than a collection of letters that he can spout the idiocies he spouts without an iota of apprehension or fear.

These are the men you have chosen to lead you to green pastures and pure waters. These are the men to whom you’ve entrusted your spiritual wellbeing. These are the men who are held in high esteem, and seen as forward thinking luminaries of the new spirituality. These are the men who are supposed to introduce you to Jesus. Good luck with that.

With love in Christ,
Michael Boldea Jr.

Bravo brother Michael! John 2:18,19: "Little children it is the last time: and as you have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know it is the last time.
They went out from us but they were not of us: for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us."
This is where the slippery slope of the false doctrine of Ultimate Reconciliation leads; onto the wide road of destruction. PSALM 138:2
KEEP PREACHING TRUTH. :)

Jude

3:Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.
4:For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord Jesus Christ.
5:I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.
6:And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
7:Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
8:Likewise, also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.
9:Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, the Lord rebuke thee.
10:But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.
11:Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.

:17But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;
:18How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.
:19These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.

Your sister in our Lord,
Nila

Thank you for boldly speaking the truth when so many have chosen to please the masses rather than God.

It is my opinion that the only thing authentic Christians who are following their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ need to be saying to all the ungodly, perverted things they say is, "Father. Forgive them for they know not what they do."

Also. I Peter 4:17 For the time [has arrived] for judgment to begin with the household of God; and if it begins with us, what will [be] the end of those who do not respect or believe or obey the good news (the Gospel) of God?
18 And if the righteous are barely saved, what will become of the godless and wicked?

I do believe that most people who do not love Jesus, already know where they are headed.

Thank you for speaking out. I wish more Christians would speak out against these heretics instead of following them blindly to hell. God bless you and your family, Michael.

When Jeremiah, who had wept and grieved over, and warned and warned a reprobated people of what was going to befall them, stood in the ruins of the Temple, God said - “Call unto me and I will show thee great things and difficult which thou knowest not.”

Several years ago, when God called me out of a ‘perfection’ cult I asked if I should speak out, if I should warn and try to persuade others to wake up. He answered with this - “My people hear my voice.” In five simple words I understood that in the cycles of rise and fall there is the point when He calls, some listen, many do not. And the sheep are separated from the goats, the wheat from the tares. This is a hard thing to wrap one’s brain around - the depraved condition of this age, when men prefer feel good and delusion, man’s definition of what is good over God’s. And so it was and is and will be to come.

In any journey, the point of no return is finally reached.

For Him,
Meema

Preach it, brother! Continue to warn us of the wolves in sheep's clothing, the hirelings, the new age planters, the one world religion servants. Bell is one of many in America's churches. Being on new ager Oprah's network is a dead giveaway. That church he was put in charge of did the right thing in removing him. This guy is an offshoot of Warren and his ilk. Twisting Romans 13 because the NWO told them to. Believers are forgetting the Word where it warns of not believing every spirit, but test the spirits...preaching another Jesus...drinking out of the cup of the Lord and of the cup of demons. Even Jesus warned...you can tell the signs of the weather, but you can not discerned the times?" Keep warning brother, people will grow up and wake up sooner or later. May the Lord continue to bless you and keep you and yours.

Sorry Mike I didn't know you were talking about Rob Bell. If I had known you were talking about him I would have said good for you Mike.
www.standupforthetruth has been showing and exposing Rob Bell for who he really is.
Keep exposing these false preachers who try to call themselves a Christian. The Bible does say in the end there will be a great falling away.

In our current court system, total proof of innocence is not necessary - just reasonable doubt. Comments as you described by people like Rob Bell cause doubt in people and to me that is what makes them dangerous. He seems like a believable person - speaking on a popular show - so many could be fooled into questioning Holy Scripture. Sometimes when people start to question, the road downhill becomes very slick. No new tricks are needed when people continue to fall for the old tricks. We need to know what we believe and WHO we believe in, then stand firm.

There is a Paul Washer video where he talks about what it will be like when full blown christian persecution happens in the US and he says it wont be a glorious thing but that true believers will be called bigots and such. Essentially true believers will be grouped together with the Westboro Baptist types. God is in control.

Malachi 2:17 keeps running through my head. We are in similar times and we are oblivious to God's displeasure with our affirmations of sin.

I realized Rob Bell was a LIAR when he said that Jesus never taught or spoke of repentance. Got my bible out and there in red letters Jesus said to repent!

Prophecy 2/28/15

Time is rapidly slipping by and there are many who still do not listen to My warnings and calls to come closer to Me and prepare for what is about to take place. Many in that hour will cry Lord, Lord, but I will not hear them for their hearts are not with Me. Do not harden your hearts or stiffen your necks

when I reprove you, for therein is the ultimate danger of unbelief. Do you not know or realize that when you turn from The Light you walk toward the darkness? You will reach a point of no return to My Realm of Light and the darkness will swallow you for eternity. My Heart grieves for every soul that chooses Death over Life in Me. But these things must take place for I hear the cries of all the innocent blood that has drenched the Earth and those who dwell on the Earth trapped in the enemy's snare. I have waited long enough. I have extended Grace and Mercy to all flesh for this season of Salvation, but My final Plan must be implemented. The end of all things is at hand and I AM about to establish My Rule and Reign and Kingdom on the Earth, says your God.

Michael, I've heard a few prophetic messages the last few days from people that I trust that "The Restrainer" is being What is your opinion?

When I read what Rob Bell said, I was grieved in my spirit. To insult the precious Word of God is to insult our Lord Himself: " In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." All we have to cling to in these last days is Jesus, the Word, and the Holy Spirit. Praise God for His Holy Word.

And men love darkness more than the light. It has always been true, but now so many of them are in the church.
