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.

The show may be heard in its entirety here (audio is available free for 14 days).

  1. I only listen to Keller once because a friend sent me his sermon... I don't want to sound like an expert for I am far from that but I knew right then that something is off, way off with this guy but I could not put my finger on it. Now with this it makes more sense.

    1. Despeville, I'm like you.. I don't mean to sound like an expert neither but I listened to him one time and that's all it took. Keller is so circuitous and oblique with his messages. I knew the first time he was not someone to trust. Keller along with Piper have been held in high suspicion to me for several years.

      Trouble with people like Keller is he is held in high regard by many and when people who are just little peon Christians like me mention to them about his mysticism or raise any concern they either say nothing and continue to laud him or they will defend him..

      I'm just glad that someone from the "inside" of Keller's Church, who has been under his teachings is coming out to expose Keller. Maybe people will begin to heed the warnings.

    2. Linda,

      I know how you feel. This account from inside of Keller's and so many others are outward signals of a sifting of weeds from tares that is being done nowadays and not for the whole world to see but for the audience of One and those who are His.

  2. Howse has a guy on all the time who teaches that you can take the mark of the beast and still be saved. Heard it with my own ears, I am pretty sure the name is Jimmy De Young. Last chance I gave house was the follow up show with people calling in and Howse defended his right to think and teach that. Didnt bother to listen to his non sense again.

    1. I'm sorry that you would write someone off just because you disagree on what actually is a minor issue. I don't agree with DeYoung on this point either, but I value his thoughts and teachings on other things.
