I wish I’d had an opportunity to speak with Rob after the message. Like I said above, I think I’d really enjoy hanging out with the guy. If I had gotten a chance to talk with Rob I would’ve asked him three questions/said three things to him:
1. Rob, I felt that your message mostly ignored what the Bible has to say about the reality and extent and depth of sin. Could you share with me what you believe the Bible teaches about sin?
2. Rob, what you had to say about Jesus and the cross seemed to suggest that you don’t hold to the traditional, penal substitutionary understanding of Christ’s death on the cross. Could you share with me what exactly you believe about the atonement, about why Christ died on the cross and what he accomplished there?
3. Rob, I felt like your message, especially for the non-Christians in the audience, left a wide open door to universalism. I would imagine with was unintentional. Could you tell me what you believe about salvation, heaven, and hell?
