Tim Keller On Hospice
Pastor and scholar Tim Keller is going home on hospice care according to a Tweet from his son.
It is always a sad occasion when a brother of influence and character is dying.
These days what is even sadder will be the comments from other Christians before and after he passes into the presence of Jesus.
“I hope he repents”…”another wolf taken out”…etc…all because this brother didn’t share the same political opinions or theological views on secondary issues.
I was never a fan of the late Charles Stanley, but I know people who were.
When Stanley died, they lost a trusted friend and a voice that helped them on their pilgrimage.
He mattered to them and there was no need to tell them he shouldn’t have, nor, God forbid, paint him as some enemy of the truth.
Tim Keller used his gifts and influence for the kingdom of God to the best of his abilities.
Let us mourn with those who mourn and pray for the peace of his family and those who loved him and were edified by his work.
