everything IS spiritual
I have been reading all the recent news articles about Rob Bell's interview with Oprah, a woman whom I consider to be the epitome of most-modern hedonism. Here is one such ARTICLE.
I had to watch the clips for myself, to hear Mr. Bell say that God's inerrant Word is not relevant for today's culture. Broke my heart to hear it.
This all brings to mind the months following Daddy's earthly passing, the long evenings and weekends of crying and grieving and missing and wishing. And then a friend, who was struggling with her own demons, loaned me her copy of Rob Bell's speech, "Everything is Spiritual."
I must have watched it close to a dozen times in the several months that I had it borrowed. Over and over.
The message spoke to my heart, plucking the out-of-tune strings of my emotions and tightening them up. It helped me to pull myself together, to know that God is good, even in the midst of the pain and sorrow.
Thank you, friend, for sharing it with me. You know who you are!
God can use anything...anyone...to perform His work whenever and wherever He wills. Even a blasphemer.
May God have mercy on Mr. Bell's soul and may he repent from the error of his ways.
