What I Read Online – 07/31/2013 (p.m.)

    • We are concerned with the way Keller conveys some specific doctrines, such as a teaching on creation that seems to legitimize theistic evolution; a teaching on sin that seems to overemphasize the impersonal effects of sin in this life and underemphasize sin as disobedience to the law of God; a doctrine of hell that seems to minimize God’s role in condemning sinners to hell or meting out wrath; a ‘divine dance’ teaching on the Trinity that seems to undermine the eternal begetting of the Son and the procession of the Spirit; and a teaching on the mission of the church that seems to say that our given task is to transform the culture.
