Timothy Keller, the notable Evangelical author, theologian and New York City-based pastor, has died following a lengthy battle with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. He was 72 years old.

Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan, a congregation that Keller helped found, sent a statement to members informing them that he died Friday morning.

"We are forever grateful for his leadership, heart, and dedication to sharing the love of Christ with others. While we will miss his presence here, we know he is rejoicing with his Savior in heaven," stated Redeemer, according to Church Leaders.

I've been involved in some online conversations about Pastor Tim Keller, who I have covered at Christian Heritage News since at least 2016. I think as reformed believers we can and should be respectful at this time of great sorrow for his family and congregation while not ignoring the truth. Frankly, I don't doubt that he is with our Savior and it is not right for others to imply he might not be - it's unhelpful and cruel to his loved ones.
