Randy Alcorn's Blog

Follow-up on Rob Bell and the Hell Controversy

Rob BellThis is my third and possibly last blog on this subject. But given its importance to the gospel of Christ and the health of Christ’s body, I make no promises.

Someone placed my Friday blog on their site. A journalist who read it posted this response:  “Alcorn's piece has a pretty major error of fact in the post. It's in this statement: ‘every human being will ultimately be saved, and that none will experience Hell.’ That's not what Bell says in Love Wins.”

Rob Bell's "Love Wins," and the Biblical Doctrine of Hell

Love WinsI mentioned in an earlier post Rob Bell’s book Love Wins. I read it several weeks ago. It contains some good and accurate things here and there, but unfortunately its central message is in explicit contradiction to Scripture and historic Christianity.

God’s Artistry in a Completely Unexpected Sea Creature

Snorkeling“Here is the sea, great and wide, which teems with creatures innumerable, living things both small and great.” Psalm 104:25

It was our final day in Maui and I’d been to a dozen snorkeling spots where I’d logged thirty-some hours in the water. I’d seen hundreds of varieties of reef fish (Monday blog), dozens of turtles (Tuesday blog), and a number of eels. But that morning I asked the Lord, knowing full well there are countless things far more important, if He would graciously allow me to see something in the water I’d never seen before.

God’s Artistry in Giant Sea Turtles

turtle“O Lord, how manifold are your works! In wisdom have you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures.” Psalm 104:24

Yesterday we looked at reef fish. Today it’s turtles. Tomorrow I’m going to share an amazing ocean surprise God shared with me on our last day in Maui.  

God’s Artistry in Reef Fish

FishNanci and I returned recently from a wonderful vacation, where we stayed at our friends’ place in Maui.

As I mentioned in a previous blog, one of my favorite activities in the world is snorkeling. It’s a profoundly spiritual experience for me to enjoy the wonders and beauties of God’s underwater world.

God Seeking His Own Glory

WorshipWhen we seek our own glory, it means we are proud and arrogant. But does God seek his own glory? And if He does, wouldn’t that make him a megalomaniac? This is a commonly misunderstood issue, largely because we forget the difference between the infinitely great and holy and loving God, and ourselves, who are both finite and fallen. John Piper gives a brief but insightful answer to this question.

The Case Against Abortion Video

There have been a lot of good prolife videos over the years, but this one ranks near the top. Think of everyone you know, younger and older, and ask them to invest three minutes of their time to watch this.

God’s Word as our Primary Influence

BibleI’m often asked why I include so many Bible verses in my books, and if I really believe it is necessary to do so. I quote Scripture frequently because God promises that his Word “will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it” (Isaiah 55:11).

God's Creation under the Sea

FishWhen I think of the first glimpse of Heaven, I think of the first time I went snorkeling. It was absolutely breathtaking. There were thousands of fish of every shape and size and color, and just when you think you’ve seen the most beautiful creation, here comes another one.

A. W. Tozer on Failure and Success: The Small and the Great

A.W. TozerA.W. Tozer was one of the writers (along with C.S. Lewis and Francis Schaeffer) who had the most profound impact on me as a young Christian, and he continues to do so. I appreciated this reminder from him that pride is delusional. And it’s never in our best interests.
