At UCLA, Mohler tackles ‘Ask Anything’ questions
LOS ANGELES (BP) -- One UCLA student asked about the Christian understanding of gender and transgenderism. Another asked R. Albert Mohler Jr. why God allows "80 percent" of the world's population to spend eternity in hell. Yet another student asked about Christians participating in stem cell research and therapies. In all, Mohler, president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, answered questions as varied as the people in the room. In the second stop on an Ask Anything Tour -- a series of question-and-answer forums with Mohler on university campuses around the United States -- an estimated 1,000 students crammed into a conference space in UCLA's Carnesdale Commons, with overflow spaces streaming the session on TV screens. The first stop on the tour was the University of Louisville in February.
