Jon Harris of Conversations That Matter released a very important video concerning Al Mohler, President of SBTS and frontrunner for the race to become President of the Southern Baptist Convention.
There are moments when Al Mohler is very strong and then times that leave you wondering is he capitulating to the Social Justice Gospel’s infiltration of the SBC or is he blind to it? Al Mohler is a enigmatic figure while also the most powerful man in the convention. So, the need for this video was great. I didn’t want to do a reaction to it until I had watched it in its entirity, and there are concerns to be had.
Jon Harris lays out three conclusions: He’s a conservative, a liberal, or an opportunist. The history of Mohler includes going from the wrong side of the Conservative Resurgence to the right side fervently. He has bent on the issue of sexuality and to some degree flip-flopped on Critical Race Theory when words and actions are taken into account. Yet he has remained steadfast on complementarianism; however this does not include defending those outside of the SBC attacking the egalitarians within the SBC.
Perhaps the SBC is a blind spot, for Al Mohler is very good at calling out theological liberalism within other denomination, but unwilling to do so within his own camp.
At the end of the video, I, personally, am more convinced that Al Mohler is opportunistic in his actions, because there is too little consistency elsewhere.
