Why is murder a crime but idolatry isn’t?
But let’s try a thought experiment. Insert “lynching” for abortion in Pastor Keller’s thread. Does one really believe that he would argue that the Bible offers no clear direction on how the state should address the scourge of terroristic lynching? We can be assured that Pastor Keller supports robust laws against lynching, period. The state must prohibit lynching by making it illegal and punishing lynching as a crime. If we cannot apply the same moral criteria to issues that do not enjoy political favor (like abortion) it means we are not being consistent.
