The controversy of Rob Bell’s Love Wins has basically died down. It was a flash in the pan, nothing new to see here. Recent conversations on Twitter have me thinking about the “orthodox”/”heretic” divide. I’ll expand on writing my thoughts on that later. But part of the other problem I have with relational theologies of love is the lack of desire to discuss justice issues. It’s part of this heresy of “love is enough,” and rather than confront the status quo, these theologies would rather just mask matrices of oppression.
I’d recommend this piece by Richard Oster: the heresy of love is enough.
