The former leader of Mars Hill Bible Church in Michigan, before attracting controversy for supporting same-sex marriage and for his 2011 book Love Wins, which challenged Christian beliefs on Hell, told The Church Times in an interview published on Thursday that the label of “heretic” has become somewhat of a badge of honor for him.
