Albert Mohler-Transforming Culture: Christian Truth Confronts Post-Christian America

(I quoted some of this article by Dr. Mohler on our radio program March 5.)

“At the same time, we must reach out and minister to the casualties of our cultural rebellion. The Church of Jesus Christ is comprised of sinners saved by grace. With the message of grace, we must reach out to those whose lives have been ruined and warped in the course of our cultural decay. Only the Church has the honest and truthful answers concerning the most basic issues facing our society. Our challenge is to match truth to compassion, and mercy to confrontation.

This was true in the first century, it is true now, and it may well be true until the Lord returns. In our depravity, human beings naturally rebel against the truth of God’s Word, but it reveals the only means of salvation. Our charge is to bear witness.

The truths of God’s Word reveal the Gospel of spiritual transformation, and the proclamation of the truths of God’s Word is the only means available to us of cultural transformation. From beginning to end, it is all in God’s hands. We are called to faithful witness and compassionate ministry. In the context of post-Christian America, our task is to preach the Gospel and to proclaim the truths of God’s Word. As the Apostle Paul wrote to the Corinthian church, the Gospel is foolishness to those seeking wisdom and a scandal to those looking for power. To the redeemed, however, the Gospel is the power of God unto salvation. Here is found the only genuine transformation. Therein is found our charge.”

    I heard that Mohler is considering running for SBC president (or whatever they call the head of their denomination). I do hope he gets elected as he seems to be one of the few sane thinkers in that organization. On one hand the SBC leaders are in a twit about some poor misisonaries speaking privately in tongues, but on the other hand, when confronted by many SBC emergent pastors who are violating huge chunks of the SBC’s own statments of faith, the leaders look confused and scared. Mohler, on the other hand, does understand what is going on as evidenced by this post.
