Who Said That?

"This is not just the same old message with new methods.  We're rediscovering Christianity as an Eastern religion, as a way of life.  Legal metaphors for faith don't deliver a way of life."

Brian McLaren or any Emergent...although someone who attended the "World Parliament of Religions" in 1893 could well have said the same thing.

Yep, it's from Rob Bell. I distinctly remember him saying that. And, it would make sense that that he has claimed in the past that WE are the Gospel, if "Christianity is a way of life." :P

Sounds like someone emergent so I say Rob Bell.

This was Bell's first book, Velvet Elvis. Anyone who read that nonsense knew that his latest book, Velvet Hell, was coming soon.

Back in 2006 Bell announced in Velvet Elvis that living the "way of Jesus" was the best possible way to live. I think that line is also voiced in Velvet Hell.

"Legal metaphors for faith don't deliver a way of life."
Funny that...the apostle Paul evidently thought differently.
I wouldn't be surprised if it is Rob Bell.
As someone else opined somewhere, he really does need to go back to (a decent) seminary.

Rob Bell and by association his wife since she was also in the same interview for the magazine article that quote was in.
