The reckoning of the Lord

Here is Al Mohler’s response to the report issues by Guidepost Solutions about abuse in the SBC. “I am writing this essay in one of the most difficult moments ever experienced by my beloved denomination, the Southern Baptist Convention. Considering the historical roots of the SBC, that is quite a statement, but it is true. It is a moment long in coming and it is not over.”
