In a Q&A at a chapel service at Southern Seminary, Dr. Mohler took questions from students. One, not surprisingly, was about social justice. The question comes at about the 24 minute mark and his answer runs nearly 40 minutes.
However, it is biblically, theologically, and historically sound. It is collegial but direct. He details two main reasons why he did not sign and was uncomfortable with the Social Justice statement coming from the MacArthur camp.
He gives a detailed explanation of the difference between liberal “critical theory” social justice and biblical social justice, explains what “gospel issue” means and the danger of using the term.
I believe that, from now on, those who ask for questions and specifics will simply be referred to this clip. It is well worth about 37 minutes of your time.
One more observation. SBTS needs a dress code. The next question after the social justice question was one about the ReVoice conference and that guy’s shirt – well, c’mon man! That ain’t right.
