I have gone to Mars Hill, seen, and heard the teachings there, and here is what I have to say: None of the preachers there claim to know everything there is to know, they speak with the hopes that the words coming out of their mouths reach people in their intended manor. Seeing as how none of them are God, there is no guarantee that they will be understood perfectly. Those that speak the hurtful and rude comments must be misunderstanding Mars Hills' intentions. Hopefully those listening take time after the teachings to reflect and let God in to help them understand in the way he intends you to. For example: a post below makes reference to a comment Rob has made that no God can be a good God if he sends people to hell. That can be taken many ways, but my interpretation has come to mean God sets up his expectations of us in a manor that always allows us a way back to him. However, we will always have free will, and if we choose not to take the path to him, he does not SEND us to hell, we choose. Rob is not perfect and neither are you, and therein lies the problem. Please don't tear someone apart because you take things so literally. If you took everything so literally in life, and truly followed the Bible LITERALLY, you would not have eyes or a tongue. Let God speak, through the teachings in the world, to you. The hatred you've portrayed speaks more about you than it does about Mars Hill.
These people that stand up every Sunday are amazingly loving people. This church is my home, and even though I have moved away, it will continue to be so until I move back thanks to the podcasts and resources they make available online.
Thank You Mars Hill!
