“It was bold hypocrisy for Dr. Mohler to post a picture of himself during the 500th anniversary celebration of the Reformation preaching over Luther’s body while simultaneously refusing to remove his longstanding compromise of Luther’s Gospel and Luther’s Reformation from the World Wide Web.”
(Chuck O’Neal – Reformation Charlotte) Dr. Mohler very recently and very quietly requested his name be removed from the Manhattan Declaration! That’s a big deal, but not a historic deal.
In October of 2009, Dr. Albert Mohler signed his name to a declaration that unites Roman Catholics, Eastern Orthodox, and Protestants together in “our duty to proclaim the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in its fullness.” He signed his name to a declaration that unites Roman Catholics, Eastern Orthodox, and Protestants together with a “clarion call to the church” and all “Christians” to fight hand in hand together on moral and social issues.
The astounding problems with this should not need to be explained. The Roman Catholic and Orthodox churches are enemies of Christ, enemies of His true Gospel, and enemies of His true Church. They are not partners in Christ’s Gospel. They are at war against Christ and His Gospel. The Roman Catholic and Orthodox churches are not co-laborers on the mission field “proclaim[ing] the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in its fullness” as the Manhattan Declaration claims. They aren’t co-laborers on the mission field, they are the mission field.
