Grace to You
Tim Keller, while remaining ambiguous as to his own views, is a willing spokesman for BioLogos. On their website, Keller professes his openness to Derek Kidner’s theory that God forming man from the dust of the ground could be a description of evolution

"One thing Christians need to know about Tim’s teachings is that they are really anything but what we have come to know as 'Evangelical' Christianity." | SHARPER IRON
Let me make this clear. I don't have a problem with Keller's view being open to scrutiny or discussion and I don't really care how popular he is. I have problems with overstatements and stereotypes. I have problems with the social gospel label being thrown around loosely against those (Tim Keller) who have orthodox beliefs, such as the inerrancy of scripture, the doctrine of original sin/total depravity, penal substitutionary atonement, the return of Christ/final judgment. It is not an overrealization of the kingdom by itself that leads to doctrinal error. If that were true, we'd be calling out William Carey out as one who held to the social gospel. He was Post-mil which led him to do all sorts of social reform in India such as helping abolish widow burning, abolishing child infanticide, educating girls, getting rid of Usury, and the list goes on and on. He also preached the gospel and translated the scriptures of course.

However, those who have both an overrealization of the kingdom and have compromised or rejected these doctrines of the faith are social gospelers. For instance, both Walter Rauschenbusch and Brian McLaren (yesterdays and todays most prominent proponents of the social gospel) reject original sin, total depravity, penal substitutionary atonement and final judgment (actually Rauschenbusch claimed ignorance about Hell). Or what about Rob Bell? He is very naive about sin, has rejected penal substitutionary atonement and now comes out with an unorthodox view of hell with its many chances to get in after death. They are rejecting orthodox theology alongside of holding to an over-realized kingdom...........When Tim Keller starts rejecting the basic tenants of the faith, then I will get concerned about the social gospel path.
