“Albert Mohler’s Gospel Coalition fellow council members, like Thabiti Anyabwile, are actively promoting financial reparations as a part of “Biblical repentance.” This puts him in an awkward spot, but it’s not so awkward that Mohler is willing to cough up the dough.”
(Pulpit & Pen) Last December, Pulpit & Pen reported how Southern Seminary decided to launch a completely unnecessary investigatory committee into the seminary’s racist past in the post, Virtue Signaling Southern Baptists Apologize for Slavery for the 1,394th Time….
The committee found nothing new, and all of SBTS’ torrid affair with slavery has been widely publicized literally forever. The committee was designed by Albert Mohler as an overture to a newly woke evangelical culture. But the committee report backfired, and we predicted that people would now call for reparations, which is something SBTS would not be willing to do.
Make no mistake about it and have no misconceptions. There is no major momentary tragedy or crisis that leads Al Mohler and so many other Social Justice liberals in evangelicalism to focus so heavily on racialism. They are just children of their age and influenced more by the current zeitgheist than the Holy Bible. Mohler, no doubt, thought he would be carried out on the shoulders of the same New Liberals that champion his protege, Russell Moore. Led by darker-skinned Social Justice Warriors and Democrats, Thabiti Anyabwile and Dwight Marxissic, surely Mohler thought this herd of racialist malcontents would be impressed at his public parade in sackcloth and ashes lamenting the sins of his fathers.
