Dr. Albert Mohler chimes in on the recent USA Today article on the supposed disappearance of the notion of sin. The article quotes Joel Osteen, Michael Horton, and Albert Mohler himself. Mohler’s conclusion is spot-on:
Perhaps the most interesting angle on the story is the fact that the secular world seems to understand that something has changed when it comes to the preaching of many churches and the beliefs of many who call themselves Christians.
We are reminded yet again that an understanding of sin is preliminary to understanding the Gospel. The magnitude of our sin explains the necessary magnitude of Christ’s atonement.
