Citações Rob Bell


„Senhor Jesus, livra-me dos teus seguidores!“

„The moment God is figured out with nice neat lines and definitions, we are no longer dealing with God.“ Velvet Elvis: Repainting the Christian Faith


„What we do comes out of who we believe we are.“ Sex God: Exploring the Endless Connections between Sexuality and Spirituality

„Our tendency in the midst of suffering is to turn on God. To get angry and bitter and shake our fist at the sky and say, "God, you don't know what it's like! You don't understand! You have no idea what I'm going through. You don't have a clue how much this hurts."

The cross is God's way of taking away all of our accusations, excuses, and arguments.

The cross is God taking on flesh and blood and saying, "Me too.“

„It’s easy to take off your clothes and have sex. People do it all the time. But opening up your soul to someone, letting them into your spirit, thoughts, fears, future, hopes, dreams… that is being naked.“

„If the gospel isn't good news for everybody, then it isn't good news for anybody. And this is because the most powerful things happen when the church surrenders its desire to convert people and convince them to join. It is when the church gives itself away in radical acts of service and compassion, expecting nothing in return, that the way of Jesus is most vividly put on display. To do this, the church must stop thinking about everybody primarily in categories of in or out, saved or not, believer or nonbeliever. Besides the fact that these terms are offensive to those who are the "un" and "non", they work against Jesus' teachings about how we are to treat each other. Jesus commanded us to love our neighbor, and our neighbor can be anybody. We are all created in the image of God, and we are all sacred, valuable creations of God. Everybody matters. To treat people differently based on who believes what is to fail to respect the image of God in everyone. As the book of James says, "God shows no favoritism." So we don't either.“

„Love is giving up control. It’s surrendering the desire to control the other person. The two—love and controlling power over the other person—are mutually exclusive. If we are serious about loving someone, we have to surrender all the desires within us to manipulate the relationship.“ Sex God: Exploring the Endless Connections between Sexuality and Spirituality

„Why blame the dark for being dark? It is far more helpful to ask why the light isn’t as bright as it could be.“ Velvet Elvis: Repainting the Christian Faith


„Agape doesn't love somebody because they're worthy.

Agape makes them worthy by the strength and power of its love.

Agape doesn't love somebody because they're beautiful.

Agape loves in such a way that it makes them beautiful.“

„Freedom is not having everything we crave, it's being able to go without the things we crave and being OK with it.“

„Because with every action, comment, conversation, we have the choice to invite Heaven or Hell to Earth.“

„It takes quite a spine to turn the other cheek. It takes phenomenal fortitude to love your enemy. It takes firm resolve to pray for those who persecute you. (with reference to Matthew 5)“


„Missions then is less about the transportation of God from one place to another and more about the identification of a God who is already there [... ] You see God where others don't. And then you point him out. So the issue isn't so much taking Jesus to people who don't have him, but going to a place and pointing out to the people the creative, life-giving God who is already present in their midst.“

„Your job is the relentless pursuit of who God made you to be. And anything else you do is sin and you need to repent of it.“ Velvet Elvis: Repainting the Christian Faith

„God has spoken, and everything else is commentary.“ Velvet Elvis: Repainting the Christian Faith

„Most of the Bible is a history told by people living in lands occupied by conquering superpowers. It is a book written from the underside of power. It’s an oppression narrative. The majority of the Bible was written by a minority people living under the rule and reign of massive, mighty empires, from the Egyptian Empire to the Babylonian Empire to the Persian Empire to the Assyrian Empire to the Roman Empire.

This can make the Bible a very difficult book to understand if you are reading it as a citizen of the the most powerful empire the world has ever seen. Without careful study and reflection, and humility, it may even be possible to miss central themes of the Scriptures.“
