    Literalism: Isn’t the Bible historically unreliable and regressive?

    Literalism: Isn’t the Bible historically unreliable and regressive?

    Each week we’re choosing one of the things that most trouble people today about Christianity. The problem with Christianity we now come to centers around the Bible. Many people in a place like New York would say this: “There are many good things in the Bible, but you shouldn’t take every word of it literally. There are legends in there. Don’t insist on it being entirely trustworthy and completely authoritative in everything it says.”

    What do we say to that? I’d like to argue (to the contrary, of course) that you should trust the Bible. You can and should trust the Bible in three ways: historically, culturally, and, most of all, personally.

    This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on November 5, 2006. Series: The Trouble with Christianity: Why It's So Hard to Believe it. Scripture: Luke 1:1-4; 24:13-32.

    Hell: Isn’t the God of Christianity an angry judge?

    Hell: Isn’t the God of Christianity an angry judge?

    Every week, we’re taking one of the things that in our culture troubles people the most about Christianity. We’re now going to look at the Christian teaching that God is a judge and a judge who consigns people to hell. 

    Someone says, “How can you possibly reconcile the concept of judgment and hell with the idea of a loving God? They just don’t go together.” What do we say about that? I’d like to argue that understanding what the Bible says about hell is crucial for understanding your own heart, for living in peace in the world, and for knowing the love of God. 

    This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on October 22, 2006. Series: The Trouble with Christianity: Why It's So Hard to Believe it. Scripture: Luke 16:19-31.

    Injustice: Hasn’t Christianity been an instrument for oppression?

    Injustice: Hasn’t Christianity been an instrument for oppression?

    We’re in a series taking the things that people in our culture (especially in New York City) are troubled by with regard to Christianity. This time, the objection could be put like this. The Christian church has a long history of oppression, and people acting in the name of Jesus Christ have engaged in systemic, economic, and cultural oppression of various races and classes. Therefore, the beliefs of Christianity are not credible and we shouldn’t believe them.

    What do we say to this? Here’s three things we can learn from the book of James that address the problem. First, the passage will teach us the biblical God actually chooses the poor and the oppressed. Secondly, anyone with a true spiritual connection to that God inevitably does the same. Thirdly, we will learn how we can make that connection.

    This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on October 15, 2006. Series: The Trouble with Christianity: Why It's So Hard to Believe it. Scripture: James 2:1-17.

Larry E Z ,

I love how he opens up the Scriptures.

I’ve been reading the Bible for the past 45 years, and yet I always learn something, or a lot of somethings, new each time I hear one of Dr. Keller sermons. His talks are always witty and intelligent, yet he presents them in such a down to earth, humble way, that makes it easy to understand and absorb into my soul. I often share these with both the church and the unchurched in my life, and they all tell me that they find them very helpful and feeding. To me, Tim Keller is this generation’s Billy Graham. He may not pack out stadiums, but his sermons reach into the hearts and homes of countless thousands around the globe.

Incredible

I used to attend Tim Kepler’s sermons in NYC years ago, and quite sporadically. Wow, I wish I had gone every single week. The man is full of insight and I am so thankful to God for blessing us with his sermons. This podcast is changing my life.

Gratitude

Tim Keller has a unique gift from God enabling him to articulate God’s word in a powerfully convicting way, and yet at the same time providing inspiration which inspires the listener to put it into practice.
