And this is unfortunate for their readers have been left with an incomplete picture of Keller’s teachings and doctrine. He uses Scripture to support his agenda, and even resorts to hermeneutical sleight of hand in doing so. Kinda gets me teared up to hear it again, thank you for the link. Holst concludes that Keller does not consistently adhere to sound Reformed hermeneutical method. 0 Engaging, p203-204 MacDonald’s doctrine of hell was no incidental side-show to this anti-penal substitutionary system of theology, but an integral part of it. ( you are talented with “administrative/organizing”. The idolatrous spirit is alive and well today (even in America where the statues are missing) – and perhaps even more crafty because we don’t even know they are there. From Keller’s perspective, this is particularly sad because it is unnecessary – the appearance of a war between these camps is largely media-driven … Keller tries to set things straight in his own writing and by championing a New York organization that was created for the very purpose of reconciling Christians to evolution, the Biologos Foundation.” In his writings Keller is arguing that “there is no real opposition between Christian faith and evolution. In short, his basic need is spiritual, not material … we must insist that the world needs Christ, and all else is entirely secondary.

The Catholic Church recognizes no marriage except one man and one woman, for life and open to life. WHAT? Who metes out the punishment in hell? One or two day dreams do not indicate idolatry.

THIS CAN NOT HAPPEN WITH A SAME SEX MARRIAGE. Engaging with Keller has dealt with six important areas of Christian doctrine and found Keller to be wanting. He points out that typology was very often used in scripture and it in no way proved that Paul thought Jesus literally pre-eisted. In the foreword, the Rev. However, it nevertheless comes with dangerous systematic implications and it is only a matter of time until it does exactly what is was designed to do: render the penal substitutionary atonement unnecessary.”, Quoting various passages from Old and New Testaments, Schweitzer refutes Keller’s contention that punishment in hell is self-inflicted. Keller writes: “They both [the sons] were using the father for their own self-centered ends rather than loving, enjoying, and serving him for his own sake. In Generous Justice, Keller teaches that the laws of jubilee support the redistribution of wealth, a concept that is entirely consistent with the ideology of neo-Marxism. 5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

This involves a distorted picture of human need and produces distortions elsewhere in his doctrinal system.”, In Generous Justice Keller writes: “Jesus, in his incarnation, ‘moved in’ with the poor … In Proverbs we see God identifying with the poor symbolically. Not Quite Theistic Evolution

I think that happened.

He wrongly uses the parable of the prodigal son in order to get to the heart of the Christian faith. In Keller’s mind, a Christian believer is one who affirms belief in the ecumenical creeds of the Faith, and this includes Roman Catholics. Engaging, p66 Hi Timothy, I whole-heartedly concur with everything in your post here. However, I do have a question, and this may sound silly coming from someone who’s been a Christian for 30 years.

Another disturbing example of Keller’s misuse of Scripture, not mentioned in Engaging, is his interpretation of the elder brother in The Prodigal God. You may have a full, devout set of doctrinal beliefs. Hermeneutical sleight of hand is ruled out; faithfulness is ruled in.” Keller’s approach to Scripture breaks the rules for sound Reformed hermeneutical method.

You will find yourself admitting and confessing this sin frequently, but do not be discouraged! The Apostle John commanded the church: “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God” (1 John 4:1).

Who doesn’t come home from a long day at work and relax numbly in front of the TV set? Or a relationship with a particular person?

Our Lord said to the Pharisees, “For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do” (Mark 7:8).

Lewis, who developed a non-offensive concept of “a hell that God does not send anyone to, where the punishment is self-inflicted, and from which no one ever asks to leave.” According to this view, hell is just a freely chosen identity, based on something besides God, going on forever. He writes: “The divine dance motif for the Trinity is no minor key in Keller’s thinking and it is not restricted only to his ideas for the doctrine of God. Look at your most uncontrollable emotions. . 1 Samuel 28:

Keller claims the Pharisees, whom he says were represented in the parable by the elder brother, “held to the traditional morality of their upbringing.

Keller’s emphasis on God’s love without reference to God’s holiness produces a distorted view of God’s character. 11. What is it that occupies your mind when you have nothing else to think about? An Interview with Timothy Keller by Anthony Sacramone of First Things, 2008, For example, his interpretation of Christ’s mission is skewed from the spiritual and eternal plane to the temporal and social plane … As a result, the dual-track mission that he advocates lacks the authority and wisdom of Christ.” [my italics].

Find the original article here. For our purposes, I’ll define Christianity as the body of believers who assent to these great ecumenical creeds … I am making a case in this book for the truth of Christianity in general – not for one particular strand of it.” Keller goes on to justify his dogma of progressive evolution by appealing to the authority of the Roman Catholic Church. Ironically, however, his greatest weakness is his failure to ground his insights in the biblical narrative itself. Keller endorses Catholic mystical writings with these words: “The best things that have been written are by Catholics during the Counter Reformation. We have seen nothing that convinces us that Keller preaches the true gospel of Christ. It is true that we don’t see temples on each street devoted to a mythological deity or communal idol, but idolatry is rampant in our world nonetheless.
