By    |   Monday, 18 May 2015 01:47 PM

For pastor Rob Bell, the idea of family is central to his impassioned sermons and religious message. Bell’s unique take on family and the afterlife are heavily scrutinized.

According to Charisma Magazine, “Bell makes a strong case that Jesus died to reconcile all people to God, but then he suggests that not everyone will realize it was Jesus they were praying to.”

Bell initially an evangelical leader, recently broke with the church and its more traditional beliefs. “From a certain evangelical perspective, Bell’s life can look like a cautionary tale: his desire to question the doctrine of Hell led to his departure from the church he built,” reports The New Yorker.

For Bell, nothing is more important than the idea of family, and spiritual interconnectivity. Here are six quotes from Bell’s writings on the subject:

1. “Jesus says, he ‘did not come to judge the world, but to save the world’ (John 12). We can name Jesus, orient our lives around him, and celebrate.”

2. “It’s one thing to be in love; it’s another to act because of love. Love is a noun — a feeling you have — and it’s also a verb, something you do.”

3. “We need you to be you. We don’t need a second anybody. We need the first you.”

4. “I’m convinced forgiving people and not carrying around bitterness is a better way to live. I’m convinced having compassion is a better way to live. I’m convinced listening to the wisdom of others is a better way to live. I’m convinced being honest with people is a better way to live.”

5. "No one has the last word other than God."

6. “When people argue for the existence of a supernatural God who is somewhere else and reaches in on occasion to do a miracle or two, they're skipping over the very world that surrounds us and courses through our veins and lights up the sky right here, right now.”
