The calling of the Christian life is one that is unchanging, because it is established upon Christ’s limitless authority and his timeless command,
Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you…(Matt 28:19-20)
This great calling or commission is the reason the church is still here and the end has not yet come. The task entrusted to the faithful remains incomplete. So the question comes, how does the church in America carry on the work entrusted to us in the 21st century? The answer according to Dr. AL Mohler is that we must first look back in order to see best how to proceed ahead.
Dr. Albert Mohler is the president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY and in his presidential forum he delivers his thoughts regarding the future of the Southern Baptist denomination. I strongly encourage you to take the time to listen to or watch this address because it is a bold and accurate assessment of where Southern Baptists have been, where we are and most importantly what we must become in the days ahead.
