I have dealt with and discussed some socially controversial topics from the LGBT community to the police’s use of deadly force to the unlawful interrogation of a kid without representation, so I thought I would take some time and jump into an old fashion theological debate. For me, these are just fun. I am a nerd, and for those Bible nerds out there, I think you might find this fun too. For those non-Bible nerds our there, you are missing out. You should be a Bible nerd too.
Yesterday I read Timothy Keller’s blog posted to www.thegospelcoalition.org. In this post, he offers three defenses to three objections to the Doctrine of Election. I wanted to object to his objections. First, let me say, I have tremendous respect for Timothy Keller. If you haven’t listened to Keller preach or read Keller’s works, your faith is poorer for it. I strive to be a pastor more like Keller with one foot actively pastoring and my other foot in the realm of theology/apologetics. I think far too often those two spheres are keep separate to the detriment of both.
But I want to respond to his response. You can and should read Kellers blog post, and you can find it here.
