A Quick and Dirty Critique of Al Mohler’s “A Call for Theological Triage and Christian Maturity”

R. Albert Mohler, Jr. writes, “theological seriousness and maturity demand that we consider doctrinal issues in terms of their relative importance. God’s truth is to be defended at every point and in every detail, but responsible Christians must determine which issues deserve first-rank attention in a time of theological crisis.” We can understand this claim to refer to different areas of doctrine. For example, Mohler writes, “Third-order issues are doctrines over which Christians may disagree and remain in close fellowship, even within local congregations. I would put most of the debates over eschatology, for example, in this category.” But if someone claims Jesus already returned, physically, shouldn’t that eschatological issue be categorized as a first-level theological issue? Alternatively, Mohler allows room for disagreement over something he would categorize as a first-level theological issue, like the doctrine of the Trinity, at least with respect to, for example, the affirmation or denial of the eternal functional subordination of the Son.

BREAKING: Southern Baptist Leaders Speak Out on Resolution 9, Founders Trailer, Abuse – Al Mohler Addresses Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality

[EDIT: An earlier headline seemed to indicate that Al Mohler had spoken to the Founders Trailer. The hosts, Ascol, and Denhollander speak to it, but not Mohler. Nor do all individuals explicitly reject Resolution 9 in the interviews. The headline has been corrected.]

Nick Eicher and Megan Basham of The World and Everything in It interview all the major players in the current controversies of the Southern Baptist Convention in this podcast episode.

‘The SBC is built on relationships, and we have weakened that,’ Albert Mohler on BF&M 2000, nomination, Twitter (Albert Mohler)

In this article, Southern Baptist Texan interviews R. Albert Mohler, Jr., who says, “I think we’re at an interesting and strategic moment for Southern Baptists, and I would define success as helping Southern Baptists to move in unity and in theological health towards a future that will be even more faithful, even more evangelistic, even more committed to missions. At this particular moment I think there’s a tremendous need for the affirmation of Southern Baptists and for affirmation by Southern Baptists of the convictions that shape us, and I think this is a moment of generational transition in the SBC where we’re in a season of enormous cultural challenge and I think Southern Baptists need to think and talk very openly and honestly about these issues, and to do so in the right spirit.”
