Tim Keller founded one of the most influential urban churches in America, Redeemer Presbyterian, which is theologically conservative, racially diverse and growing across its three New York City congregations.

He was set to receive an award from Princeton Theological Seminary, also a Presbyterian institution in the Reformed tradition, for his contributions to the “Neo-Calvinist vision of religious engagement.”

I have walked around the Princeton Theological Seminary. It is adjacent to Princeton Univ although not part of it. They revoked a reward for a minister who preaches Christian orthodox beliefs on sexuality.

“Neo-Calvinist vision of religious engagement.”

Sounds like a good blurb for a horror movie poster/ad.

The PC-USA denomination is dying. Good riddance. There are some old Christians still in it, simply because they don’t want to change from the church in which they were raised, but there are few younger Christians because they don’t preach the gospel (just Lib politics with some “god talk”).

Christianity will destroy political correctness. Leftists know that and do all they can to destroy it first. Others have tried, all have failed.

The odd thing is that Tim Keller is not popular with conservative Presbyterians who see him as too liberal theologically.

Aha, you are thinking "Calvin" as in Calvin & Hobbes.
