Tim Keller was awarded Princeton Theological Seminary's Kuyper Prize a couple weeks ago for Excellence in Reformed Theology and Public Witness. But last week, under significant pressure and and criticism, the seminary revoked the award, because of his orthodox stance on sexuality and his commitment to complementarian theology, which holds to the view that men and women have distinct roles by GOd's design within the church and the home. In the statement from the seminary's president regarding their change of mind, he claims that he personally, and "they", Princeton's seminary, stand in "prophetic opposition" to church's like Keller's church, Redeemer (and Generations too, I might add), and their fidelity to historic orthodoxy in these areas.

This whole story is not really surprising , but it is quite telling in regard to where we are, not just in American culture, but in the American church. Rather than try to unpack it, I want to steer you to Dr. Albert Mohler's website and his daily program called The Briefing, specifically to the report from March 23, 2017.

The Briefing is a daily analysis of news and events from a Christian worldview. I personally listen to this program almost every day and highly recommend it. You may not agree with his stance on everything but Dr. Mohler is brilliant, biblical and altogether helpful in trying to see current events and cultural trends from a Christian perspective.

Go listen to this one episode as an introduction to the program. I recommend you subscribe to it as well and listen regularly, and let your thinking and understanding of news be filtered through, or at least informed and challenged by a thoroughly biblical worldview.
