Has Al Mohler Padded His Resume?I have criticized the president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary for his hiring, his guest speakers, his strange radio program, his blogging, and his overall performance.
I also have asked readers to pray for him and have quoted him favorably from time to time. I consider him a brother in Christ.
Which makes this report from Jerry Grace all the more troubling. The seminary web site says that Dr. Mohler "served as pastor and staff minister of several Southern Baptist churches." Sounds like he had some serious pastoral experience, doesn't it? Yet Dr. Mohler admitted to Jerry, "I did not serve as a full time pastor of any church prior to my election as president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in 1993."
Simply amazing. Does this mean that Dr. Mohler is guilty of resume padding?
At the very least, it means that the head of an institution which has for its main purpose the training of Southern Baptist pastors has never served as a full time pastor.
Southern Baptists, what say ye?
