LOUISVILLE, Ky. (BP)–Southern Baptist Theological Seminary President R. Albert Mohler Jr. is scheduled to appear on MSNBC’s “Donahue” Dec. 17 at 8 p.m. Eastern to discuss the exclusive claims of Christ in relation to Judaism and other world religions. Mohler will debate the issue in MSNBC’s New York City studio before a live audience.
Also scheduled to appear in studio are Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, executive director of the Oxford L’Chaim Society, and Michael Brown, president of ICN Ministries, a Messianic Jewish organization.
All three men debated the Bible’s claims during a “Donahue” broadcast in August. The discussion was spirited, with Donahue calling Christianity’s exclusive claims “intolerant” and “arrogant,” and Boteach calling Mohler a “spiritual Neanderthal.”
Mohler, though, grounded his answers in Scripture.
“All persons are sinners in need of a Savior,” he said. “Jesus Christ is the sole mediator. The gospel, we are told by the apostle Paul, comes first to the Jews and then to Gentiles. Salvation is found in his name and in his name alone through faith in Christ, and [through] that faith alone.”
As always, guests and topics on “Donahue” are subject to change.
