According to the Henry Center, media from last night’s Mohler-Wallis debate on social justice will be up in 10-14 days.
Here’s what the Center just published about the debate from Thursday night:
The ATO chapel of Trinity Evangelical Divinity School was filled to capacity as over 600 people attended the stimulating debate between Jim Wallis and Al Mohler on the question: Is Social Justice an Essential Part of the Mission of the Church? An even larger audience was able to view the debate through our live-stream. Dr. Chris Firestone, philosophy professor at Trinity International University, was excellent at moderating the event. Many people in attendance agreed that the discussion clarified in a helpful way the important theological and social issues that are at stake.
For those of you who missed the conversation, we’ll be posting the free audio and video of the entire event within two weeks here.You better believe I’ll have it on this blog when it hits. The conversation was the most significant public discussion of the issue that has happened in a long time; hundreds were on the live-stream, which featured discussion as lively as did the actual event.
Let’s hope the conversation continues and sparks a generation of Christians who prioritize proclamation of Christ’s gospel and realize that the truly converted person cannot help but have a passionate interest in the welfare of others, in a physical and especially spiritual sense.
