Rob Bell Quotes on Life: 10 Memorable Statements From Evangelical Christian

By    |   Monday, 18 May 2015 02:07 PM

For pastor Rob Bell, life is eternal. His views on life have been well documented in his books and in his preaching at the Mars Hill Church Group.

Bell founded the church initially as an evangelical meeting ground for like-minded religious traditionalists. But recently his views have begun to evolve. “Bell challenged traditional, orthodox Christian views of hell and the afterlife,” notes One Minute Apologist.

As his views have become more controversial to some, he’s ironically become more mainstream. “He raised eyebrows in 2011 with his book ‘Love Wins,’ which questioned the existence of hell. Since then, he’s slowly drifted away from his evangelical roots,” reports The Huffington Post.

Here are 10 quotes from Bell on life:

1. “What is fascinating to me is that at the center of the Christian faith is the assumption that this life isn’t all there is. That there is more to life than the material. That existence is not limited to what we can see, touch, measure, taste, hear, and observe. One of the central assertions of the Christian worldview is that there is ‘more.’”

2. “That's where we were at that point in our life and God met us there. Those moments were necessary for us to arrive here, at this place at this time, as we are. Love frees us to embrace all of our history, the history in which all things are being made new.”

3. “To say it again, eternal life is less about a kind of time that starts when we die, and more about a quality and vitality of life now in connection to God.”

4. “Eternal life doesn't start when we die; it starts now. It's not about a life that begins at death; it's about experiencing the kind of life now that can endure and survive even death.”

5. “It's as if human history were progressing along a trajectory, an arc, a continuum; and sacred history is the capturing and recording of those moments when people became aware that they were being called and drawn and pulled forward by the divine force and power and energy that gives life to everything.”

6. “We lose our life, only to find it.”

7. “Eternal life then is a certain kind of life I am living more and more now and will go on forever.”

8. “Grace is an entirely different way of experiencing life. Another word for grace is gift.”

9. “In every life there is an energy field created because we are energy, giving out energy, creating energy.”

10. “When I’m talking about God, I’m talking about a reality known, felt, and experienced, but one that cannot be located in any specific physical space in any tangible way.”
