Tim Keller: The Both/And of the Gospel
The 21st-century church often polarises itself into those who are culturally engaged, missionary-minded and socially involved and those who emphasise the preservation and preaching of orthodox doctrine and evangelism. The former cause the latter of truncating the story of God’s purposes in the world. The latter believe that in reaching for cultural relevance the former are letting go of Biblical truth. Both groups are right in their concerns and wrong in their responses. In fact, these two extremes present us with a false choice. Missional engagement in the world is not only compatible with classic, orthodox theology—it requires it. John Stott is right: “God is a God of both justice and justification.” QIdeas.org
