I’m delighted to announce my prayerful intention to nominate @albertmohler as our next SBC president when we gather together in Orlando in June 2020 for our annual meeting. (1/4)

Since Albert the Pious is the exemplar for opposition to the modernity struggling to get a toe-hold in the SBC, the presidential election is likely to be a showdown between the fantasists of the so-called Conservative Resurgence and the post-16th-century fantasists. Further, since theological differences are not susceptible of resolution by appeal to facts, his nomination is all but certain to provoke a bitter fight. And, since Mohler has struggled for years to overcome his too-close association with C.J. Mahaney’s financial legerdemain and see-no-evil attitude toward sexual abuse, his nomination tracks a lot of fault-lines in the SBC.
I’m excited. It’s going to be the most entertaining convention in years.
