I understand that a lot of people in conservative circles are skeptical about the direction Mohler has been taking over the last few years. After all, Mohler is responsible for placing many of the woke, social justice warriors into their posts around the Southern Baptist Convention. Yet, in the last couple of years, it appears that Mohler has been moving decidedly to the right of even many of those he placed in those positions.
Nobody is exactly sure why he appears to be moving in a different direction than many of his Southern Baptist, colleagues, but he is. Some say he’s just shifting with the wind—but the wind appears to be blowing in a different direction than him. As the Southern Baptist Convention drifts further left, Mohler’s conservative rhetoric appears to be moving sharply and decisively to the right on many issues.
Many do not know what to make of this, but I personally believe we should give credit where it is due. And in a few instances, it is certainly due.
Currently, Mohler is under fire by mainstream Southern Baptist figureheads associated with the Bart Barber-Dave Miller-Dwight McKissic wing. More than anyone, these are the men who shift with whichever way the wind blows in the denomination. Recently, Mohler published a tweet explaining why he supports conservative candidates who support important issues such as the sanctity of life and marriage.
Further, Mohler made the far left news site, Right Wing Watch, where he implied that voting conservative was a Christian duty—which he is correct.
But that doesn’t matter to the leftists in the SBC. Two of the most outspoken gobbledy-gooky clowns with bullhorns are on social media blasting Mohler right now for these words saying that Mohler doesn’t represent the majority of the denomination and they’re calling for his head.
Here, pro-abortion, Marxist Southern Baptist pastor complains that he’s afraid Mohler means one must vote Republican. I doubt Mohler’s intent is to say that one must vote Republican in order to be Christian. But Mohler clearly understands which parties the candidates with values that align more closely to a biblical worldview fall into—and it certainly isn’t Democrat.
McKissic goes on to praise the other seminary presidents for their courage to keep their convictions to themselves because, well, only leftist God-haters like him are allowed to publicly proclaim their political loyalties.
Of course, the race-baiting tongue-babbling charismatic blowhard immediately turns it into a racial issue, but McKissic isn’t the only one. Dave Miller, also known as The Company Man™, chimed in.
Of course, Miller was dubbed the name The Company Man™ because of his remarkable ability to not just shift, but completely sail, with the doctrinal and convictional winds of the Southern Baptist Convention. But of course, why wouldn’t he? After all, he sang Karen Swllow Prior’s praises as she was partially behind the recent scandal involving the blackmail of conservative Texas pastor, Tom Buck.
Of course, Dave Miller hates discernment. Earlier this year, he called on the Southern Baptist Convention to take “decisive steps” to deal with the discernment ministries (like yours truly) who continually point out the false ways and idolatry of the desperately trying to keep control of the seminary.
Here’s the bottom line. This mob is now angry at Al Mohler. And the way leftists operate, they will not stop until his head is served to them on a silver platter. If they can’t get him forced out of Southern Seminary, then they will do all they can to force Southern Seminary out of the SBC. It’s decision time, folks. The lines are being clearly drawn in the sand and everyone, including Al Mohler, is going to have to decide decisively which side he wants to be on. And if he chooses the right side, he’s going to have to abandon the other side altogether without looking back, lest he be turned into a figurative pillar of salt.
