Hell-questioning pastor leaving Mich. megachurch

An evangelical pastor who stirred a firestorm this year with his book that questions traditional Christian beliefs about hell is leaving his Kent County megachurch. A statement posted Thursday on the website of Mars Hill church in Grandville said Rob Bell would discuss the decision Sunday.

Bell’s book “Love Wins” questions the traditional Christian belief that a select number of believers will spend eternity in heaven while everyone else is tormented in hell. He has said he wrote the book because the Christian message that God is love seems to have gotten lost.

Mars Hill has grown under his leadership over the past 12 years.
