Call To Die

Then [Jesus] said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it. (Luke 9:23-24, HCSB)

Jimmy Carter: Why the Conservative Resurgence was Necessary

Albert Mohler's recent interview with Jimmy Carter amply demonstrates why the Conservative Resurgence within the Southern Baptist Convention was absolutely necessary.

Carter is, it seems, the living embodiment of the kind of moderate theological forces that were prevalent in the leadership of the Southern Baptist Convention previous to the monumental work done by those committed to inerrant Scripture, beginning with the election of Adrian Rogers to the SBC presidency in 1979.

Carter, who was until relatively recently affiliated with the SBC and who has now publicly repudiated the Convention on a number of occasions, spoke to Dr. Mohler on the basis of convictions that he had held while still within the Convention. Carter explicitly rejected the idea of inerrancy; he also was forthright in the fact that he actively rationalizes away the biblical teaching concerning the exclusivity of Christ and God-ordained gender roles [Carter actually uses the word "rationalize" twice during the interview].
