As Tim Keller faces death he has become emboldened with defending his legacy of syncretism in the church. Just this year Time Keller has promoted Stephen Colbert’s false gospel, compared Francis Collins to Daniel, endorsed a book written by Greg Johnson, promoted Critical Bible Theory, which is simply third-waysim. Now Tim Keller is defending voting for Democrats, basically arguing that the Bible is not clear on biblical public policy. Tim Keller dropped a batch of new Tweets that caught a lot of attention.
Many people criticized Tim Keller’s ridiculous comparison and lack of understanding of public policy. Firstly, there are many Christians that would argue that idolatry should be illegal, theonomist mainly. So this position is not unheard of. Secondly, Abortion is a physical act where as idolatry more of an attitude and motivation but can manifest itself in graven images and false religions. As far as criminality is concerned, idolatry is far more difficult to prove, unless there are the aforementioned manifestations.
Secondly, the Bible provides earthly remedies for sins. For instance, private sins have the Matthew 18 process. Additionally, some sins are prescribed legal punishment in Scripture. Such sins include murder, which abortion false under. Therefore, a biblical stance on abortion that calls for the criminalization of abortion is a slam dunk case to make. Idolatry in the modern context is more difficult to identify and argue because graven images aren’t as blatant as they used to be. Tim Keller is reaching here.
Thirdly, not caring for the poor is not a remotely criminal sin, by itself. Again, its an attitude or motivation. But Tim Keller would go on to disregard Scriptures teachings on partiality when it comes to suggesting that government welfare policies are in bounds for Christians to support.
It’s important to point out that Tim Keller is not retarded. He is a sophist style of writer constantly quoting CS Lewis and other famous writers. He’s being deliberate here, and is demonstrably frustrated that people are not buying into him like they used to. Tim Keller is a wolf.
