Dr. Mohler and Yoga

Dr. R. Albert Mohler Takes on Yoga

Some may be wondering why a prestigious Seminary's president seems to be "all worked up" about Yoga. Has Yoga infiltrated the Seminary or the constituency of the Southern Baptist Convention?

Dr. R. Albert Mohler, president at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, has recently created somewhat of a furor about Yoga. See Al's latest comments here.

We are even more flabbergasted by Dr. Mohler's concern about Yoga when, to our knowledge, he has never raised his voice or pen about the Pedobaptist Hybrid Calvinism which is rampant at Southern. (See our earlier blog).

Mohler has "played footsies" with Pedobaptist scholars who teach that "coventant children" get regenerated in their mothers' wombs or shortly after their births, and he does not seem to be concerned about these errors. He has even had some of them [such as John Frame] to speak at SBTS and he has participated with them in "conferences," etc. Some of his graduates, such as Timmy Brister of the Founders Ministries, apparently have imbibed the Pedobaptist heresy of "born again before faith" [i. e. "regeneration precedes faith"]. See Brister's remarks here. Also here.

I doubt that Yoga is much of a threat to most Southern Baptists so as to hinder evangelism and church planting, but we have no doubts about the negative influence of the Hybrid Calvinism held by some of the Seminary profs and graduates.

Bob, it would be easier for Dr. mohler to "take on" yoga than pedobaptist theolgy because he probably has few friends who practice yoga, in contrast to his many pedobaptist friends. It's sad, indeed, that a Baptist like Mohler tolerates such serious error.
