The clarity with which Dr. Al Mohler presents the gospel in this recent PBS interview is extremely refreshing. Here’s the highlight:
“Well, I believe that the Bible is the Word that leads us to the gospel that saves, and Ray, I believe that it is the only gospel that saves. I believe that the word that all humans need to hear is that they are sinners, and that they are desperately in need a Savior, and that Savior is Jesus Christ. And I believe that the Bible is the only book, the only revelation that is going to get persons to a saving knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. The Apostle Paul said that ‘faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.’ We find that in the Bible, and that’s why the Bible is so central to the lives of Christians and so central to our communication and witness of the gospel to other peoples as well.”
How’s that for boldness in the face of a pluralistic society? Dr. Mohler also asserts unequivocally that “the one true and living God has informed us concerning himself and all things needful for our lives in the word of God in the Bible.” He speaks of human sin, the exclusivity of the Christian gospel, and the purpose of Christ’s life and death being the salvation of the lost, as well as addressing other questions on religion and culture with clarity and candor. The interview is under 10 minutes long, and is well worth the listen.
