Sometimes God seems to be killing us

“Something is safe for us to maintain in our lives only if it has really stopped being an idol.  That can happen only when we are truly willing to live without it, when we truly say from the heart: ‘Because I have God, I can live without you.’…Sometimes God seems to be killing us when he’s actually saving us.”

– Tim Keller, Counterfeit Gods:The Empty Promises of Money, Sex and Power,  and the Only Hope that Matters

 

Below, you’ll find a short video of Keller explaining why he wrote the book in the first place.  Enjoy!
