Mohler at New Attitude 2008

Dr. Mohler, President of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, held a Q&A session, you can download the audio here.
On special revelation [Scripture], he quotes one of his mentors Carl F. Henry,
Revelation is God’s gracious self-disclosure whereby He forfeits His own personal privacy so that His sinful creatures might know Him.
On Biblical inerrancy,
The doctrine of inerrancy is necessary but not sufficient. If you do away with it you cast doubt on every single word of Scripture and usually those who do that have an agenda that becomes very transparent very quickly. In other words, there is something in the text they don’t like or can’t handle.
On the Christian response to homosexuality,
We can also say too much by trying to elaborate upon what the Scripture says as if the Scripture has a focus on homosexuality in 3rd Corinthians
What if the postmodernists are right and the Scripture means what you say it means? Well you pretty much end up with Christianity in America, I guess. That’s pretty much what it looks like, but that’s the problem isn’t it? The only corrective is the Scripture means what God meant and it’s our responsibility and discipline to study the Scriptures to hear the Word of God and to obey.
Looking forward to reading Dr. Mohler’s book, Culture Shift: Engaging Current Issues with Timeless Truth.
