Mohler delivers Southern Seminary fall convocation address; announces Mark Dever hire to faculty August 27, 2019
The church has been in a “predicament” for 2,000 years, and its continuing faithfulness is determined by its commitment to stand firm despite that predicament, said R. Albert Mohler Jr. during The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary’s fall convocation for the 2019-2020 academic year, August 27.
His address, which was drawn from the text of 1 Corinthians 11:18-31 and titled “The Christian Predicament,” noted that the church is considered foolish and scandalous for its commitment to the cross of Christ.

Secular culture is more antagonistic to the Christian faith than ever before. In the last century, historic Christianity has often been criticized as outdated, outmoded, and out of touch. And at each step, the church has trusted The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary to defend it.
A new Center for Christian Apologetics at Southern Seminary will continue that legacy by ensuring that today’s Christians are prepared to defend historic, orthodox Christianity. The center will give students opportunities to learn from leading apologists and theologians in an effort to underline Southern Seminary as a leading institution for the study of apologetics as a theological discipline.
