Tim Keller agrees with Jesus on this one…or to put it more from God’s Perspective…God caused Tim Keller to agree with Him.  Read below.  From the best book on marriage I’ve ever read.


“To be loved but not known is comforting but superficial. To be known and not loved is our greatest fear. But to be fully known and truly loved is, well, a lot like being loved by God. It is what we need more than anything. It liberates us from pretense, humbles us out of our self-righteousness, and fortifies us for any difficulty life can throw at us.”  Timothy Keller, The Meaning of Marriage: Facing the Complexities of Commitment with the Wisdom of God

“And I caused them to experience Your Name, and I will continue to cause IT to be experienced, so that Your LOVE, with which You LOVED Me, would be inside them, and I Myself would be inside them.” – John 17:26

“And we ourselves personally have experienced and have trusted THE LOVE which God has caused to exist inside US; God IS LOVE, and the person who is REMAINING inside THE LOVE, he remains inside God and God is inside him.”  – 1 John 4:16
