Tim Keller on the Problem with Religion: Listen Christians!


If I had to guess, and since I have no context at all for this video that is exactly what I am doing, I would say that Keller here is talking directly to Christians. It’s just a hunch, but this is one seriously powerful 1 minute and 38 seconds. And it is quite a knife to the heart too. The irony is, I think, that not only do Christians have a habit of committing these ‘crime,’ as it were, against people who are ‘not like us,’ but we have a terribly bad habit of committing them against one another too. A quick scan of the church of blog will demonstrate this rather easily. This packs a punch so be prepared.

Soli Deo Gloria!

  1. I totally agree with you. Religion is the cause of much division and conflict.. Not only are there so many religions, but they are in some so many denominations, each claiming to know the truth. and wondering why others cannot see it their way. Religion, as the word connotes, should be a binding factor, but in practice it does the opposite. Because it is exclusive and divisive, it denies humanity whichi is indivisible. and which makes every one an essential piece in its mosaic.

  2. And what do you do when you interact with them and they reject “the Truth”? Do you tolerate that? Even if it leads to damnation?

    Religious beliefs inevitably lead to intolerance- after all, if you kids are exposed to the heathens… the exception are beliefs so vague they are meaningless.

  3. Thanks for the information on religion.

    We recently wrote an article on religion at Brain Blogger. How do we really view religion? Could it be the very source of belief comes from our brain?

    We would like to read your comments on our article. Thank you.


  4. I must suggest to all Christians and Atheist to read this book “The End of Reason” by Dr. Ravi Zacharias. This book forces the reader’s mind to do the critical thinking that is so lacking in Christianity today. It should also be considered required reading for the atheist who has never really looked at a logical argument for the existence of God, or the Christian who has never really critically analyzed his own faith.

  5. Matt,

    Thanks for stopping by. I have only just started listening to Dr Zacharias. A friend loaned me some CD’s. He is a very well-thought out and compelling speaker. I have enjoyed so far what I have heard and also I have learned a great deal about the depths of ignorance that is involved in being a agnostic or an atheist.
