John Stott once said, “Every Christian should be both conservative and radical; conservative in preserving the faith and radical in applying it.” In this new video, TGC Council members Tim Keller, Don Carson, and Stephen Um discuss what this should look like in practice. They talk about the way Scripture is applied in different cultures, the danger of equating cultural traditions with biblical authority, and what it means to be “radical” in application.

Keller says, “You need to be absolutely true from generation to generation to whatever the text actually says. But then, you have to be extremely creative in applying it to new situations.”
