This is what I consider to be a properly customized form of 2 Peter chapter 2 for the recent clarity that has come to the Christian community about the destructive heresy that Rob Bell has began to teach in public and in writing. Take these words to heart and pray that Rob Bell might somehow escape from his folly and the destruction that is promised to all false teachers in the Church:
But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed. And in their greed they will exploit you with false words. Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.
This false teacher among you is Rob Bell! He is like an irrational animal, a creature of instinct, born to be caught and destroyed, blaspheming about matters of which he is ignorant. He will be destroyed in the very destruction that he denies will come upon the ungodly, suffering wrong as the wage for his wrongdoing. He counts it a pleasure to revel in public and in online videos about how joyous it is to question what has been clearly revealed in the Scriptures. He is a blot and blemish, reveling in his deceptions, even while he administers the Supper in his own mega-church. He has eyes full of pastoral unfaithfulness, an insatiable wolf among sheep. He entices unsteady souls with his teaching, his videos, and his books. He has a heart trained in greed. An accursed child indeed! Forsaking the right way, he has gone the wrong way. He has followed the way of Balaam, the son of Beor, who loved gain from wrongdoing, failing to listen to God’s clear message! In the end, Balaam had to be rebuked for his own transgression by a dumb ass that spoke with human voice to restrain the prophet’s madness!
Rob Bell is a waterless spring. He is a mist driven by a storm. For him the gloom of utter darkness has been reserved. For, speaking loud boasts of folly, he entices by sensual passions of their own flesh those who are barely escaping from those who live in error. He promises them freedom, even in their unbelief, but he himself is a slave of corruption. For whatever overcomes a person, to that he is enslaved. For if, after a person has escaped the defilements of the world through the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the last state has become worse for them than the first. For it would have been better for Rob Bell never to have known the way of righteousness than after knowing it to turn back from the holy commandment delivered to him. What the true proverb says has happened to him: “The dog returns to its own vomit, and the pig, after washing itself, returns to wallow in the mire.”
