In 2019, Reformation Charlotte broke the story that a Campus Crusade (CRU) leader — who identifies as “LGBTQ” was teaching students that the Scriptures do not teach that homosexuality is sinful. Quoting a lesbian TGC author, Rachel Gilson, Grant Hartley tweeted the following:
Hartley, a former student leader at CRU and an intern for CRU in California, identifies as LGBTQ and uses the hashtag “#LGBTQinChrist.”
Since then, Hartley has joined the Roman Catholic Church as an open homosexual yet still runs in circles with his Revoice and The Gospel Coalition friends, like Rachel Gilson. In a recent tweet, however, Hartley posted that he is looking forward to impressing “all the cute celibate boys” at the upcoming Revoice Conference.
If you’re not familiar with Revoice, it is the “gay Christian” movement largely associated with the historically conservative Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) that advocates for gay “celibacy” without giving up your gay identity while claiming to be a Christian. The movement is largely prevalent with homosexuals who want to justify their homosexual behavior, live a life of homosexuality, yet stop short of actual sex, they claim. For adherents to this movement, gay cuddling and man-to-man intimate relationships are normal so long as it stops short of bodily penetration.

Now, in Hartley’s latest Twitter rant, he explains how it was Tim Keller who helped him shape his pro-LGBTQ views.
So is it fair to blame Tim Keller for this? Yes. Tim Keller’s views are toxic and spiritually poisonous and have only served to muddy the waters on cultural issues in the Church. Keller’s views have never been grounded in the authority of Scripture—it’s why he can deny the literal Creation account.
