Twenty Year Member of Redeemer Presbyterian Shares Concerns About Tim Keller
On 5 October 2012, Brannon Howse interviewed writer Jonathan Cousar on his daily talk show, Worldview Weekend. Cousar attended Tim Keller's Redeemer Presbyterian Church for twenty years. In this interview, Cousar shares with Howse some of the concerning trends he witnessed at Redeemer, including the promotion and teaching of mysticism and contemplative prayer. Cousar has voiced his concerns to Tim Keller personally, and shares some of those reactions.

Christians today are in a battle, not of weapons, but of truth. Remember the words of the apostle Paul:
For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths. (2 Timothy 4:3-4)
And do not forget the admonition of Jude:
Beloved, although I was very eager to write to you about our common salvation, I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints. (Jude 1:3)
