    Communist authorities in China arrested five Christians from a house church in Shanxi Province because they attended a Christian conference in Malaysia last year where Pastors Tim Keller and D.A. Carson were speakers. The five Christians are from Xuncheng Reformed Church in Taiyuan city and were arrested and detained on Monday for taking part in “KL2020 Gospel and Culture” conference hosted by a Chinese Indonesian Pastor Stephen Tong, the U.S.-based persecution watchdog International Christian Concern reported. Two of the church members were arrested when they went to pick up their church co-worker, Zhang Ligong, as he was being released after...
  • Tim Keller Says Biblical Moral Values Cannot Be Proven to Be True

    Tim Keller has long been heralded as one of the most profound thought leaders in Reformed Christianity. An author of several books and a popular speaker in the Evangelical speaking circuit, Keller has been silently creeping his way in under a facade of a defender of the Christian faith all the while attempting to destroy it from within. Tim Keller is a prime example of trading historical Christian thought and represents a wave of postmodern thinking that has so infected the Church...

  • Rev. Tim Keller: Church's affiliation with Republicanism has given Christian nationalism 'a place to incubate'

    Famed pastor and author Tim Keller said the American Church’s championing of the Republican Party over the last several decades has given Christian nationalism “a place where it could incubate.” “Christian nationalism works on fear and resentment,” Keller, founder and former pastor of Redeemer Church in New York City, said in an interview with the Church Leaders Podcast on Wednesday. “Friedrich Nietzsche said there is no truth. So you can't appeal to truth. What you appeal to is fear and resentment, and that's how you get power and that's how you win.” Keller said that while he agrees with the...

    Enemies Within The Church ^ | August 23, 2020 | Jon Harris
    Perhaps no one has done more to narrow the gap between progressive evangelicalism and mainstream evangelicalism than Tim Keller. Keller grew up in a mainline Lutheran church. As a teenager, during confirmation class, a young Lutheran cleric and social activist introduced him to a Christian version of social liberation grounded in a “spirit of love.” However, the Kellers soon started attending a conservative Methodist church which helped reinforce their son’s more traditional conception of God and the reality of hell.[1] What he could not harmonize as a teenager—the ethics of the New Left and orthodox Christianity—he started learning to reconcile...
  • Critical theory is not biblical justice, it locates evil in the wrong place: Rev. Tim Keller explains

    Acclaimed theologian Tim Keller recently addressed the issue of critical theory which has become popularized in some Christian circles. In a lengthy essay published at Life in The Gospel, the former pastor at Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan articulated the differences in the many theories of justice presently swirling in culture, including postmodernism. "There have never been stronger calls for justice than those we are hearing today. But seldom do those issuing the calls acknowledge that currently there are competing visions of justice, often at sharp variance, and that none of them have achieved anything like a cultural consensus, not...

    State and local leaders reacted with swift condemnation Tuesday to reports that President Donald Trump may send federal forces to the Duke City. Sheriff Manuel Gonzales, meanwhile, headed to the White House, ensnaring himself in the controversy. Gonzales is scheduled to meet with Trump Wednesday – a visit that is being condemned by Sen. Martin Heinrich, who is calling for his resignation, and other fellow Democrats. The news set off a firestorm among city and state leaders, who expressed concern that the federal officers were being sent here to quell protests and would use violent tactics that have been shown...

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- Albuquerque police recovered guns, knives and ammunition following a protest that turned violent Monday Night. A man was arrested for shooting a person near Old Town after protesters attempted to tear down a statue of Juan de Oñate. “This kind of violence has no place in our city. Our hearts go out to the victim and his family. Last night, this sculpture became more than a symbol, it became a matter of public safety, and today we removed it from its place in front of the Albuquerque Museum until the appropriate civic institutions can determine next steps," said...

He will begin chemotherapy next week in New York City, where he currently resides with his wife, Kathy. The author and...

    Timothy Keller has argued that historical Christian positions on controversial social issues do not fit with America's two-party political system. Keller, a best-selling author and founder of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, wrote in an op-ed for The New York Times on Saturday that the Christian approach to social issues could be attacked both by the left and the right. "For example, following both the Bible and the early church, Christians should be committed to racial justice and the poor, but also to the understanding that sex is only for marriage and for nurturing family," he wrote. "One...

    What should the role of Christians in politics be? More people than ever are asking that question. Christians cannot pretend they can transcend politics and simply “preach the Gospel.” Those who avoid all political discussions and engagement are essentially casting a vote for the social status quo. (Skip) Nevertheless, while believers can register under a party affiliation and be active in politics, they should not identify the Christian church or faith with a political party as the only Christian one. (Skip) One is that it gives those considering the Christian faith the strong impression that to be converted, they need...

Keller says, “I mean I still hear it, though especially years ago when I lived in the South. I heard white people say, ‘Yeah, it’s a shame what slavery did, but I never owned any slaves so why in the world does anybody think that I as a white person now had any responsibility to that community over there at all? I didn’t own slaves.’ But here is Daniel...

    CBN ^ | 2/27/2017
    Leading evangelical Pastor Tim Keller is stepping down from his role as senior pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City. But the move is not a shock to church members. The transition has been planned for years. Christianity Today reports Keller made the announcement at all eight of the multi-site church's services Sunday. The goal has been to transition the 5,000 member megachurch into three smaller, separate congregations with a pastor for each location. While Keller will no longer be the church's pastor on July 1, he's definitely not calling it quits. "I'm not retiring. Moving into a...

    Many Christians are fearful of the changes they see around them. What are the prospects of a thriving church if our culture continues to grow more hostile? “We must neither panic on the one hand nor assume persecution is always good on the other,” Tim Keller explains in a new roundtable video with Don Carson and John Piper [audio]. “Persecution is inevitable, but there is no way to simply say it’s good or bad for the church.” We must think in “far bigger, biblical categories than mere number-based, pundit-generated trend analysis,” adds Carson, author of Christ and Culture Revisited (Eerdmans,...
  • Christians 'Declining Sharply' in America; Unaffiliated Rising, Now Hold Greater Population Share

    An extensive study by the Pew Research Center has revealed that Christians are declining sharply in America in terms of population share, while the religiously unaffiliated are rising, and now make up a larger share than American Catholics. The rise of religious intermarriages was one trend linked to the growth of the unaffiliated. The report, which was released on Tuesday, stated: "The drop in the Christian share of the population has been driven mainly by declines among mainline Protestants and Catholics. Each of those large religious traditions has shrunk by approximately 3 percentage points since 2007. The evangelical Protestant share...

    I find it frustrating when I read or hear columnists, pundits, or journalists dismiss Christians as inconsistent because "they pick and choose which of the rules in the Bible to obey." Most often I hear, "Christians ignore lots of Old Testament texts---about not eating raw meat or pork or shellfish, not executing people for breaking the Sabbath, not wearing garments woven with two kinds of material and so on. Then they condemn homosexuality. Aren't you just picking and choosing what you want to believe from the Bible?" I don't expect everyone to understand that the whole Bible is about Jesus...
