Dr. Al Mohler Spanks Newsweek

Attacks on evangelical Christians from the liberal media are not new. But they at least used to put a veneer of objectivity on their occasional hit pieces.

Looks like Newsweek is changing the game now. They've declared war. And as usual, Dr. Al Mohler is more than capable of stepping up to the plate and wielding a bat when necessary. Here is Dr. Mohler's response to the screed.

We can expect more of this sort of thing. The aggressive New Atheists and their ongoing billboard/media campaigns are a good example of the kind of contempt and mockery that will intensify. The Lord Himself warned us about it 2,000 years ago and we always seem so surprised when it happens.

Like most of the Lord's critics, the author of this Newsweek piece will one day stand before Him and give account. Until Jesus comes, the Church will continue on when its enemies' bodies lie a'mouldering in their graves and their souls are combusting elsewhere. But rather than rejoice in that certainty, I would rather pray for this guy and for his repentance. We must continue on being ambassadors for Christ in hostile territory. And no heart is beyond God's mercy and grace, and ability to change.

Happy New Year.
