Is Christianity Divisive? | Tim Keller

November 5, 2020

The Veritas Forum

Some say that claiming to know God or truth is too exclusive in a pluralistic society and too divisive in a free democratic one. People who hold such exclusive beliefs, they say, tend to impose them on others and oppress those who disagree. How can Christians, then, justify their faith that says Jesus is the one true way to God? Can they fit in and operate in a free society? Tim Keller dives into these questions on the stage at UC Berkeley. Please like, share, subscribe to, and review this podcast. Thank you!
