Generous Justice

The Gospel Coalition 2011 National Conference


In this 29-minute session, Tim Keller, the founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan and author of The Reason for God and The Prodigal God, deals with the theology behind why we help the poor and disenfranchised. We help not because we want to do good, but because we have an accurate view of our own justification before God.

If we allow the gospel of justification by faith to shape our understanding of who we are, it will in turn shape our view of who the poor is. As you go through your day, use the truth of our low status as sinners to shape how you see others. And help them—not because you’re able, but because God helped you.
