Rob Bell gets his “OWN” TV show Dec. 21

The Rob Bell Show

OWN television has just announced the premiere of its new series titled, The Rob Bell Show. The same Rob Bell who challenges the truth of the Bible and continues to influence millions of fans around the world (having just returned from a national tour with New Agers Deepak Chopra and Oprah), despite his fall from biblical Christianity.  The same former pastor of Mars Hill church who denies the doctrine of a real Hell (making him a heretic in the true sense of the word). He is the author of many books pushing unScriptural doctrine including Velvet Elvis, Love Wins and his new The Zimzum of Love, giving people a “startling new way of looking at marriage.”  (Bell has come out in support of homosexual marriage.)

Bell debuted on OWN for Winfrey’s “Super Soul Sunday” program in Nov. 2013 to discuss his latest book, What We Talk About When We Talk About God, which was her premiere pick for the “Oprah’s Super Soulful Book of the Month.”

(Side note: OWN stands for Oprah Winfrey Network, but Old Worn-out New-Age Network is a more descriptive for the acronym.)

Here is the video promo trailer:

From Oprah’s website:

Considered to be one of America’s most influential and progressive spiritual leaders, New York Times bestselling author Rob Bell shines a bright light on the topics we most want to talk about but often don’t know where to begin. Through riveting conversations with a live audience and creative on-camera storytelling, Rob explores themes such as “Owning Your Story” and “Wonder and Awe” as only he can.

The special focuses on the universal desire to create a life of meaning, hope, and joy – making peace with your past, living and thriving in the present right here, right now. Whether you’re spiritual, cynical, religious, or not quite sure, Rob invites you into the questions, wrestling with what it all means and why we find spiritual topics so fascinating. As 2014 comes to a close, Rob shares the tools everyone can begin using now to start the New Year off right moving forward in your life, owning who you are and becoming who you are meant to be.

In 1999, at just 28-years-old, Rob founded one of the fastest-growing churches in America, Mars Hill Bible Church, where he pastored until 2011, and he was named one of Time Magazine’s “100 Most Influential People in the World” in 2011.

Most recently, Rob was a featured speaker/tour “trailblazer” on “Oprah’s The Life You Want Weekend,” Oprah Winfrey’s multi-city arena tour that traveled throughout the U.S. in the fall of 2014. He is also the author of the New York Times Bestselling Books “What We Talk About When We Talk About God,” “Love Wins” and more. Through his work as a bestselling author, critically acclaimed “Nooma” short film series, and recent appearances on Oprah’s tour, people from across the spectrum have come to resonate with Rob’s ability to compellingly engage the topics that matter most in life.

  1. Looks like my family's TV won't be tuned to a certain channel. Not that it ever was in the first place, thank God.

  2. I am in a relationship with Jesus, the Christ of God, my Savior and Lord of my life, however when I gave my life to Christ in 1978 via the Christian Church, and accepted my call to proclaim the gospel in 1979, eight years later I realized that though I preached Christ, I was not in a full relationship with Him. I realized that I struggled with the reality of the incarnation (not the resurrection though), but probably moreso I struggled with identifying with Jesus divine and human and wasn't really "feeling" Him, even though I was preaching Him, I'm an avid reader, so I read lots of spiritual books about God (a lot of Watchman Nee). The spiritual books helped me to keep moving until I found that connection that put me in direct contact with the Creator of all life. That someone was Jesus. I had a personal encounter and knew. I think that we as Christians should allow others to take the journey without judgment (I don't think Jesus would like us judging) until they find there way to the Christ of God. Jesus knows more about the journey they are taking than we do, He knows what path they are on, which corner they are going to turn, what crossroad they are at and when He is reading and willing, He will nudge them in the right direction.

  3. Hi Patricia- I'm really feeling compelled to respond to a couple troubling comments from your post:

    You said:
    "wasn't really "feeling" Him, even though I was preaching Him, I'm an avid reader, so I read lots of spiritual books about God (a lot of Watchman Nee). The spiritual books helped me to keep moving until I found that connection that put me in direct contact with the Creator of all life."

    Your feelings derive from your heart, which is "desperately wicked, who can know it" (Jeremiah 17:9), we must seek scripture for Truth, not how we feel.
    You sought guidance from books written by man, not the only book written by God- it is not hard to discern from your post that this has surely led you astray.
    "Direct Contact"…wow! That puts YOU right up there with Moses. RUN as fast as you can from this folly and haughtiness of spirit.

    You said:
    "(I don't think Jesus would like us judging)"

    Not only does Jesus want us to judge (after we have removed the plank in our own eye so that we may see clearly to remove the spec from our brother's eye-Matt 7:5), but Paul rebukes the church in Corinth for not calling out the destructive sin of the members- 1 Corinthians 6:5 (5 I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?)- I would encourage you to read the full chapter (6) for the true, biblical understanding of judging.

    Patricia, I have family who believe exactly as you do- driven almost solely by their emotions and not satisfied with the Bible, they desire to "get closer to Jesus" and it has led to spiritual devastation, as well as wreaking havoc on their lives. They are being pulled further and further away from Truth and they are NONE the wise to it. The devil is more clever than we know….I hope you will receive this as a warning and not as criticism.
