Paul's Passing Thoughts

Tyrant Albert Mohler Claims Evangelicals can Band Together with Mormons Against Tyranny and Proclaims Calvinism to be a Better False Gospel Than Mormonism

ppt-jpeg4Albert Mohler, the president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, was invited to speak at Brigham Young University yesterday. This is an interfaith lecture series that focuses on common societal concerns and not doctrine. Other notable Southern Baptists have spoken there including Richard Land. Like Land, Mohler addressed the common concern of religious liberty:

Mormons and Southern Baptists may not see each other in heaven, but they might in jail, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary President Albert Mohler said in an Oct. 21 lecture at Brigham Young University (Bob Allen: SBC leader speaks at Mormon school; Associated Baptist Press,10/22/2013).

“I do not believe that we are going to heaven together, but I do believe we may go to jail together,”

the head of the flagship Southern Baptist Convention seminary told about 400 BYU students, faculty and staff in an address about religious-liberty concerns.

“I do not mean to exaggerate, but we are living in the shadow of a great moral revolution that we commonly believe will have grave and devastating human consequences.”

Land echoed the same position in regard to those who are in “doctrinal error,” but share the same societal moral values:

“When it comes to religious freedom, we all hang together or we all hang separately,”

Land told the Deseret News in a Q&A interview published Sept. 6.

“We are common targets in this. The secularists are out to circumscribe our constitutional rights.”

Whether secularism, or atheism, or any other ism, it is important to know which ism is actually a threat to our constitutional liberties. All of these isms can live peacefully with Christians, and always have historically. The question is, “What kind of ism is the ism?” Atheism grounded in individualism is no threat. Secularism grounded in individualism is no threat, and never has been. The founding fathers of our country believed in Deism for the most part and that is grounded in individualism as opposed to collectivism. Of course, they were very friendly to religious freedom. Our country was founded on such.

The antithesis to individualism, collectivism, is based on the Caste system and rejects the competence of the individual to properly interpret reality. Hence, enlightened mediators must rule the unenlightened masses, and the individual must be sacrificed for what benefits “the group.” The difference in religion is the institutional church versus the home fellowship movement. The difference in government is state as servant versus state as master.

In yet another example of an intellectual train wreck that is Albert Mohler, Mohler, a Calvinist, spoke of religious liberty at the lecture. Calvinism is an ism that is grounded in collectivism. Those two isms together encompass almost all of the tyranny that has taken place since the Dark Age. Collectivism, in and of itself, is the key to understanding 99.9999% of the present-day woes in the American church.

Furthermore, we can always count on Mohler to create an intellectual train wreck that inspires steroidal morbid curiosity. He then proceeded to tell the Mormons attending that Calvinism is a better false gospel than theirs:

This is what brings me to Brigham Young University today, I am not here because I believe we are going to heaven together. I do not believe that. I believe that salvation comes only to those who believe and trust only in Christ and in his substitutionary atonement for salvation. I believe in justification by faith alone, in Christ alone.

“Justification by faith alone” is a deceptive Calvinist bumper sticker. It requires a perpetual return to the same gospel that saved us by faith alone in order to maintain our salvation. The Christian is not free to work in sanctification because we must live by faith alone in our Christian life. Calvin believed that the Sabbath represented sanctification. Mohler, like all Calvinists that know what Calvin really believed, state that progressive salvific forgiveness can only be found in the institutional church and is mediated by pastors.

Mohler presenting himself as a protector of religious liberty is like Colonial Sanders advocating vegetarianism. Therefore, we must know our cuts of isms.

    Every Calvinist I’ve ever encountered has said that the culture wars are Pelagian, so I would caution the Mormons to steer clear of the Torjan horse here. Don’t team up with the very ones who are pushing homosexuality, which is the Calvinist. Mormons, think hard before you join forces with Satans little helpers. The SBC is the enemy of everything good and holy in the world.
