'I Was Wrong': Albert Mohler Says He's Voting for Trump
Theologian and seminary president Albert Mohler says in a new column he has changed his mind about Donald Trump as president, even if he hasnât changed his mind about Trumpâs character.
Mohler didnât support Trump four years ago and spoke out multiple times against the Republican nominee, writing in the summer of 2016 that evangelicals were tragically being urged to support the âlesser of two evils.â
This week, though, Mohler said he now supports Trump. Mohler made his arguments in a column, âChristians, Conscience, and the Looming 2020 Election.â...
Mike, please don't encourage him. It is incredible to me that the Dems could nominate a man as unfitted for office (mentally and ethically) as Biden is, along with a hard Left running mate. They have truly gone mad. We'll find out soon how many Americans have drunk this Kool-Aid.

Youâre link is weak, Jim, as most of them are. We donât need to protect our âdemocracyâ from Trump, we need protect our Republic from people like Biden and you. Donât forget to vote.
Jim's tired tirades against his previeved enemies, Dominionism, is quite Quixote-esque. He is tilting as phantoms of the Left's imagination.
All law is based on a moral standard. Something is right or correct. Something else is wrong. Who establishes those standards is his biggest concern. He looks for a crowd-sourced set of definitions. At the root of that is self-reliance and self-rule, shaking their collective fist at the Lord.
Instead, Christians acknowledge that the Lord is our maker, sustainer, and King. His moral standards are the ones with which He will judge. While all of us fail that judgment on our own without Christ, His precepts are the best place to start as a basis for right vs wrong and any law that flows from those.
Get your boots on, Jiminy. Iâm hauling a busload of white evangelicals to Nebraska to force the kingdom on you. Three fourths of them are Dominionists, and the others are anti-universal healthcare pro-lifers. Man oh man, are YOU in trouble!

I am not confidently predicting victory. I am too scarred by the horrific outcome of the 2016 election to count any chickens, no matter how alive and clucking they might seem....

So having abortions banned, drinking banned, smoking a various substances banned. Can be described as a secondary goal of government or not even a goal of government at all âđ
Again I will point out,
"Should Christians try to force the kingdom on others?"---No
7. because the mind of the flesh is hostile toward God, for it is not subject to Godâs law, neither indeed can it be. 8. Those who are in the flesh canât please God.
Yes and he is wrong for saying there is a homosexual gene that some are born with. Although he did say that didn't give them the right to sin in that manner.
And, I have often wondered why his signed the Manhattan Declaration and then took years to withdraw his signature. This is what I refer to as Christianity 101. That is the most ecumenical document ever printed.

Funny how you can tell you arenât forcing your views, but are blind to the fact that living out Christian conviction is not forcing views either. Why is that, Jim? Isnât it painful having a telephone pole in your eye?

We do have paramutual betting on horse races in this state. I think we're down to one track though. we used to have three large horse racing tracks in this state.

Apparently you need some other questions answered as well such as:
"What is Dominion Theology?"
So I'm not going to get overwrought no matter what happens to the gambling issue.
âAnd Iâm running for SBC president â , just to make everyone feel better when we start pushing social justice over the gospel. My problem with Al Mohler is he is very evasion about his true motives. As he always says,â Christians need to think real hard and quickâ, but doesnât really come out to say what he wants or thinks.. has he wanted the social left evangelical ( the guys and gals who believe in an historical Jesus, just not a risen Savior) and blue haired fundamentalist to sit on the same pew. Iâm afraid the theologian may have a lot of trouble steering a ship with conservative Baptists, since he has had no problem firing conservatives at Southeastern Theological seminary. I believe Al Mohler has the potential to finish the split that JD Greear has accelerated.
Who said I was a Trump supporter. Heck, I donât criticize all Democrats holding local offices. At the national level, they persecute the Church, kill babies, defile the marriage bed, push unjust wars too, pervert kids, donât respect property rights, hate Israel, am I missing something? Donât vote for Trump, but voting for Biden and national democrats with knowledge of this evil is total sin.
R. Albert Mohler Jr wrote: I have been on the front lines of the battle for the sanctity of human life and the defense of the family for three decades. I could never vote for Hillary Clinton, nor can I vote against my conscience just to prevent her from reaching the Oval Office. Conscience, however, is the central issue in the present crisis.
In the midst of President Bill Clintonâs sex scandal and impeachment, I went on national television numerous times to call upon the president to resign, arguing that he lacked theÂ moralÂ character necessary for any leader, much less the president of the United States. Editorial pages of many major American newspapers made the same call, as did a host of religious leaders.
excerpt from, "For Christians, credibility at stake in election"
Just how many times as Mr. Mohlerq ask Donald Trump to Resignâ It is certainly hypocritical of him if he hasn'tâ
I don't remember where the Democrats demanded anyone to commit immoral acts? But it is wrong:
