He does not like the traditional doctrine of hell and is flirting with transmillennialism and hyper-preterism. He also minimizes sin and questions the penal substitutionary view of the atonement. Ultimately, he has refashioned God into his own image. There is one word for what McLaren and his interviewer speak: heresy.
Anyone who does not see a problem with what McLaren (and Hansen) is saying here should stop spending all of their time reading blogs and listening to podcasts. They also need to stop reading all of those new Emergent books. Instead, they should actually spend their time in the Word of God. After all, "All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work" (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
