Al Mohler Says SBC Is Homophobic

An SBC messenger from Georgia publicly asks Dr. Al Mohler an accountability question regarding statements he allegedly made in an interview on the subject of homosexuality.

 I was more than concerned at the question since it appeared one of the greats was succumbing to liberalism and thus emptying the  clear stance of scripture on the sin of homosexuality.

No worries. Mohler  “leans in” with a cogently clear response demonstrating  the Gospel continues to be stewarded by faithful men today. He is compassionate, articulate and brutally honest.

This is must see stuff and  sure to create a “fire-storm”.

Conversational Curse?

R. Albert Mohler, Jr.

Dr Al Mohler cogently articulates  what is at stake in his masterful response to Brian McClarens “to weak for the task” attempt to defend Rob Bell. The contrast is clear according to Mohlers polemic. This isn’t a third tier gray area. Somebody stands under the Pauline anathema for preaching a “counterfeit gospel”. Finally!

Mohlers summary:

“We are talking about two rival understandings of the Gospel here — two very different understandings of theology, Gospel, Bible, doctrine, and the totality of the Christian faith. Both sides in this controversy understand what is at stake.”

We Should Raise “Hell”

Fallen angels in Hell

 A year ago I did a post on the subject of Hell.  It included a list of articles from a rich  diversity of ministers who had various reasons  for tackling the subject. The articles are below.

My purpose for the post was to raise “Hell” to its biblical place of priority. However, it seems that the universalist and annihilationalist are doing their best to keep the subject in their biblical mythology casket.

Al Mohler has a couple of recent posts addressing the “hellish” topic.  He is a true “antagonizer”of the faith. I chose to “cut to the center of his article” since it began  with a question. Unlike Rob Bell and more like the Apostle Paul, Dr. Mohler asks and gives concrete answers. How refreshing!

“What happened to evangelical convictions about hell?

The first issue is a changed view of God. The biblical vision of God has been rejected by the culture as too restrictive of human freedom and offensive to human sensibilities. God’s love has been redefined so that it is no longer holy. God’s sovereignty has been reconceived so that human autonomy is undisturbed. In recent years, even God’s omniscience has been redefined to mean that God perfectly knows all that He can perfectly know, but He cannot possibly know a future based on free human decisions.

Evangelical revisionists promote an understanding of divine love that is never coercive and would disallow any thought that God would send impenitent sinners to eternal punishment in the fires of hell. They are seeking to rescue God from the bad reputation He picked up by associating with theologians who for centuries taught the traditional doctrine. God is just not like that, they reassure. He would never sentence anyone — however guilty — to eternal torment and anguish.”
