Al Mohler Invites Muslim ‘Sharia Supremacists’ to the Evangelical Theological Society

Al Mohler took his rallying cry, “Unity, Unity, Unity,” to a whole new level last week when he invited three Muslims to attend as panelists at the Evangelical Theological Society’s 72nd annual meeting.

Founded in 1949, the Evangelical Theological Society (ETS) is a “group of scholars, teachers, pastors, students, and others dedicated to the oral exchange and written expression of theological thought and research. The ETS is devoted to the inerrancy and inspiration of the Scriptures and the gospel of Jesus Christ.”

The theme was Islam and Christianity, and while we imagine James White was chomping at the bit to roll up his tattooed sleeves and do a pre-conference debate with Shabir Ally, it was not to be so.

Mohler, who is the president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and the presumed president-elect (wink, wink) of the Southern Baptist Convention, and who served as ETS’s Program Chair and Vice President (but was crowned President of ETS at the event) said about their conference:

We are called to truth, and to understanding the world around us more accurately and thoughtfully. That certainly includes our understanding of Islam, which has from the beginning represented an enormous challenge to Christian evangelism, apologetics, theology, and cultural engagement.

That’s why he invited the Muhammadans.

The three panelists, Asma Uddin, Hamza Yusuf, and Mohamed Magid, in the spirt of “cultural engagement,” were given the floor to share their view of evangelicals, offering pointed criticisms of bible-believing believers (such as Evangelicals supporting President Trump’s 2017 “Muslim ban” and Christians engaging in “islamophobia”) but also suggesting that there ought to be more kindness and cooperation between the two faith communities.

As far as who exactly these people are, Janet Mefferd has a good summary of the panelists invited to speak. While at first glance they seem demure and non-radical, it doesn’t take much to see their ideas certainly are.

Let’s say it like it is:

The walls have been breached.

  1. Seriously, when it comes to Mohler, is he just that naïve and gullible, or is he working for the other team? I wish RC were here to see how he would deal with his “friend“ and frequent invitee to Ligonier conferences. Same goes for Mark Dever, Ron Burns and Lig Duncan. I’d like to think RC would deal with them the way John MacArthur has and needing to condemn and separate, if necessary. And it probably would be.

    Where is that in Scripture? I missed it. I thought we were called to testify about the Gospel of Christ. We’re going to learn truth from a trio of anti-Christs? How so? Any supposed Christian man who can sit there and allow himself to be lectured by Muslims has no respect for Christ or for himself.

    Islam is no mystery that we need to learn more about. It is an open book, and its bloody 1400-year history is well documented. You want to learn more about Islam, start with The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam.

  3. Beware the “We are called to…” ploy.

    Nowadays whenever I hear that pious fake holy talk, I know that there’s a good chance some milquetoast liar is about to spread some organic fertilizer.

  4. Once again it is time to assume that Al Mohler is not a believer and has fallen away (I will leave it to the theologians to argue about whether or not a believer can fall away). But at the end of the day, a Saint he aint.

  5. You sure that’s not Rick Warren? There’s an old saying “everyone has a twin somewhere”. Wait for: “we worship the same God just a different name”. Men like these (I’m using the term men loosely) make me sick. What is with these “leaders”.
