New York magazine on Keller

If you read the blogs I read you’ll already have seen a link to this profile on Tim Keller in the New York Magazine.

If you don’t read those blogs it’s worth reading.

The journalist seems to have a little bit of trouble reconciling this intelligent, rational, passionate urban preacher man with “conservative” positions on homosexuality and abortion.

“At Redeemer, I tell Keller, you may teach that you should treat your gay, pro-choice, or, for that matter, atheist neighbor with respect, even love, but as a matter of belief, you know that he or she has the misfortune of being wrong. “Well, you know what,” he says, “you can’t teach what we teach—that you must be born again through belief in Jesus Christ—without saying most of the world is wrong.”
