NYC Pastor Tim Keller Answers Why the World is Suffering

Tim Keller is the founder of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York, a Calvinist theologian and author of ‘The Reason for God’. He also co-founded The Gospel Coalition and now trains gospel leaders.

He compared it to the attack on the Twin Towers and the aftershock then: “After 9/11, which had a huge impact on the city in a way you didn’t see in the rest of the country or the world, it took several weeks at least for us to figure out at our church ‘what does this mean for us in the future?’ We can’t go on with business as usual. We have to find out ‘what is God calling us to be?’ and it can’t be the same. I think that will emerge and I don’t think it’s easy to tell.”

This is a thought provoking interview. Tim said “When people feel less than self-sufficient, they are more open to God.” How do we become more evangelical during this time of social distancing? How do we, as individuals and as a church, reach more people for Christ? How do we establish real relationships when we are to “stay at home”?
