Doug Wilson: Rob Bell and the nature of arrogance

“Epistemological humility” among Christians who claim the Bible is the Word of God bugs me. That is, the idea that true humility consists in the understanding that we can never really know anything with absolute certainty, and that any authoritative truth claims are arrogant.

Which is why I loved this video. Doug Wilson hits a grand slam.

Don’t be a “if-you-don’t-believe-exactly-the-same-as-I-do-you’re-probably-not-saved” Christian. But also don’t slink into the teeming mass of evangelicals who are afraid to make a point, or who believe if we just could really understand one another we’d all actually be saying the same thing.

  1. Really great video, well explained. I am hugely uncomfortable with Rob Bell’s teaching yet I appreciate Driscoll’s and listen regularly. That said, Driscoll’s style is definitely anecdotal and self-focused with the impression of openness being given.

    Could criticism directed at Bell be appropriate for Driscoll?
