Al Mohler asks today in his Conventional Thinking blog, “Is Crawford Howell Toy a Baptist Hero?” You may remember that Toy embraced modernist theology, resigned from Southern Seminary, and then became a Unitarian. You can guess Mohler’s answer to the question. Toy is not a hero, despite the ongoing accolades he has received from the Baptist Left over the years.
I think it is interesting that Mohler has written on this timely subject around the same time that the new 9 Marks ejournal is raising concerns about liberal currents among self-confessed evangelicals. Here’s to hoping that the Lord will preserve Southern Baptists (and evangelicals in general) from succumbing to all the various types of neo-liberalism that would threaten to undo our gospel purity and our commitment to the Great Commission.
