Al Mohler

Yesterday morning I posted here that Al Mohler, President of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY would be the next President of the Southern Baptist Convention.

I just read an article (4:30 PM, Wednesday, Jan. 2) at that he will indeed be nominated for said office.

Dr Mohler is an articulate spokesman for conservative Christian values. He is a man who is definitely NOT ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He is obviously gifted, intellectually and otherwise. Southern Seminary has grown tremendously under his leadership, and continues to draw students and turn out graduates who are committed to Scripture and discipleship -- a full orbed discipleship.
Dr Mohler speaks with clarity on thorny issues. He is a Christian thinker, in the vein of Francis Schaffer. He can speak, knowledgeably on bio-ethics as well as the latest film or book coming at society, and its impact on believers. Whenever I see him on Larry King (or whatever) I am never sorry to see his name and my denomination linked together.
Dr Mohler is a fine preacher, an expositor, and Spirit-filled proclaimer of the truth. We, as Southern Baptists, should all be proud of such leaders and thank God for them. May the Lord be gracious to us and increase the tribe of Al Mohler.
