When asked by Bill O’Reilly about Rob Bell, who was recently featured on the cover of Time magazine, Franklin Graham wasted no time saying “First of all I believe the man (Rob Bell) is a false teacher, I believe he is a heretic. Because the bible is very clear there is a hell.”
To which Bill O’Reilly asked “Isn’t that a cruel action?”
“A cruel action?” Answers Graham, “what’s cruel is a person that rejects Almighty God and slams the door in God’s face. The bible says that God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him shouldn’t perish but have everlasting life. Jesus Christ came to this earth to take our sins, your sin Bill, mine and he went to the cross and he took our sin.”
Franklin Graham is one of Billy Graham’s five children and joins a list that includes John Piper, John MacArthur, Michael Horton, Mark Driscoll, Paul Washer, Brannon Howse and other Christian Evangelicals who say Rob Bell is a false teacher.
