Can Christians Vote for a Mormon? That was the topic of a panel discussion at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. When I saw the headline, I couldn’t believe we were still talking about this. The panel resulted in some good points being made about viewing American history from a Christian perspective and abandoning the idea that the White House is some king of mascot for Christianity. I like this statement from Al Mohler: “Above all we have a Gospel responsibility, that we are first and foremost citizens of the heavenly Kingdom and our concern is that others will become a part of the Kingdom through the proclamation of the Gospel.”
The panel was composed of four members, among them Al Mohler, Jr., President of Southern Baptist Seminary and Russell Moore, dead of the school of theology at Southern. Despite a little shock at the headline (and maybe that was the point) I really liked where they came out on this. Read the entire article at Baptist Press.
