The conviction of being a "functional universalist"...
From T. Elliott Welsh's blog post about Rob Bell comes this convicting commentary:
We show we are functioning universalists when we do not share the Gospel with our unsaved friends, family members, co-workers, or neighbors.
My response there?
Great insights! Just came across this from a reference at the mlive.com article and you've hit the nail on the head for something I've found personally convicting for a long time.It's like the old metaphor of, "If you _knew_ you had the cure for cancer, wouldn't you tell everyone you knew and do everything in your power to make them listen?" The reality is, we don't live that way when it comes to Jesus. Why? What variation of "lack of faith" does that come from?
