Albert Mohler's Opinions

Agree
President Bush rightly characterized these murders as "evil, despicable acts of terror." We must call evil by its proper name and refuse to slander the victims by ascribing rationality to the terrorists' cause. These murderers were driven by an irrational rage... ..."sin" is an indispensable explanation. These acts of terror were not merely attacks upon individuals [but] attacks upon God's dignity, God's creatures, God's law, and God's glory.

Agree
The Christian tradition understands truth as established by God and revealed through the self-revelation of God in Scripture. Truth is eternal, fixed, and universal. Our responsibility is to order our minds in accordance with God’s revealed truth and to bear witness to this truth. We serve a Savior who identified himself as “the Way, the Truth, and the Life” and called for belief.

Agree
Influenced by humanistic psychology, most Americans assume that a child is born essentially innocent of all sin and blame any subsequent transgressions on the deleterious effects of socialization and bad influences. Of course, the Bible teaches that children emerge from the womb as sinners who throughout life will require discipline. ... Today's outbreak of out-of-control children can be directly traced to the failure of parents to discipline their children.

Disagree
Given the human tendency toward inconsistency, there are people who will say they hold both positions. But you cannot coherently affirm the Christian-truth claim and the dominant model of evolutionary theory at the same time. Personally, I am a young-Earth creationist. I believe the Bible is adequately clear about how God created the world, and that its most natural reading points to a six-day creation that included not just the animal and plant species but the earth itself.

Disagree
...the Bible doesn’t seem overly concerned with human happiness. One reason for this is surely that happiness is just too passing as a perception... In a fallen world, the wrong things will make us happy or unhappy. Add to this the fact that we seem to be largely incompetent at making ourselves happy, or even at knowing what will make us happy. ... We must ... understand family life as a crucible for holiness, not an experiment in happiness.

Agree
[The reason I am a young-age creationist as opposed to an old-age creationist is that] I have to come to the Scriptures -- and in particular the first 11 chapters of the Book of Genesis -- and try to figure out why I should interpret those 11 chapters differently than I would interpret any other passage of Scripture.
