Albert Mohler: A Dizzying and Deadly Revolution

The horrors of abortion appear daily as states across the country pledge their support for late-term abortion laws. And, with the recent change in New York’s law legalizing abortion right up to the point of birth, we see virtually immediate real-world impact.

The ink was barely dry on New York’s “Reproductive Health Act” when the New York Times reported that, after Governor Cuomo’s signing of the bill, “anti-abortion campaigners predicted it would eliminate criminal penalties for violence that ends women’s pregnancies. The debate resurfaced over the weekend after the Queens district attorney, Richard A. Brown, cited the new law … as the reason for dropping an abortion charge against a man who the police say fatally stabbed his former girlfriend when she was 14 weeks pregnant.”

The speed of the moral revolution is dizzying: Just days after the passage of this abortion law, the criminal justice system dropped its case to protect the life of the unborn.

Albert Mohler: New York’s Chilling New Abortion Law

New York state has just enacted a new abortion law, making it an even deadlier place for the unborn to be.

After Democrats gained control of the state Senate in 2018, they now have control of the entire government of the Empire State. They have a liberal Democratic governor Andrew Cuomo and now democratic majorities in both chambers of the state legislature.

That explains why—on the 46th anniversary of Roe v. Wade—governor Cuomo signed into law an act that allows abortions right up until a baby’s due date if mothers health is at risk. The word “health” has been defined legally in such a way that it can mean anything. Eventually, it can mean everything.

This bill now defines a person as “a human being who has been born and is alive.”

That’s chilling …

And the response from the New York State legislature can only be described as macabre.

Albert Mohler: Understanding the Rise in Claims of Transgender Identity


Could the transgender revolution really be fueled by a social dimension?—a social contagion?

That’s what a current—and now very controversial—peer-reviewed study has found. The headline from the Economist in London was this, “Why are so many teenage girls appearing in gender clinics?”

The author of the academic study discovered that there is a clear social dimension, a contagion of what’s called gender dysphoria, particularly among adolescent girls and young women.

So: What does it mean?

It means the recent spike in transgender identity may be attributable in large measure to the influence of other young women in the same place at the same time within a definable set of relationships or going to similar places on the internet.

You may have sensed this already by observation and intuition.

Now: The academic research supports it.

Albert Mohler: As We Begin the Year 2019…


Human beings cannot help but notice the cycle of the year, and we cannot help but keep count. Just about every society on earth celebrates a new year in a major way. Thus, 2019 now arrives with gusto. We can do nothing to make it happen and we can do nothing keep it from happening. Time doesn’t ask for our permission.

Of course, we have no complete knowledge of what the year 2019 will bring. You can count on the fact that the 2020 U.S. presidential election cycle will begin with dispatch this year. Everyone will be watching the economy, and a host of problems will be inherited from 2018.

But the most important events of 2019, for you, will likely never make the headlines. The events of biggest meaning happen in our homes, our churches, our families.

Happy New Year!

May 2019 bring you and yours great blessings.

Albert Mohler: 2018: A Whirlwind of a Year


2018 now enters the history books with more of a bang than a whimper. It was the year Brett Kavanaugh joined the Supreme Court, President Trump restructured his cabinet, Democrats celebrated a “blue wave” in the House, and the partisan divide only deepened.

It was the year that titans in the digital world began to feel the heat of international scrutiny and the stock market scored a big zero. California was threatened by the deadliest wild fires in state history and disasters dotted the globe, but in Thailand, a soccer team including 12 boys and their coach were rescued from a flooded cave as the world watched and prayed.

There was a royal wedding in Britain and the world said goodbye to scientist Stephen Hawking and to both President George H. W. Bush and his wife, Barbara. An historic age of world evangelism came to an end with the death of Billy Graham.

It was a year for the ages, and now it is history.

Albert Mohler: The Full Joy of Christmas


‘Tis the season for Christmas carols, and one of the most beautiful of our carols asks the most important question of all: “What child is this, who, laid to rest, on Mary’s lap is sleeping?” Christmas demands an answer to that question.

Even with all the fanfare and frantic activity of the season, that question remains. Even though commercialism and secularism and political correctness try to push the question aside, the question still stands. In the stillness of a winter’s night, the question rings out loudly and insistently – who is this child?

You know the carol’s answer: “This, this is Christ the king, whom shepherd’s guard and angels sing.” “Joy! Joy! For Christ is born. The babe, the son of Mary!” That is the true answer to the question – the baby is Christ the King. May you know the full joy of Christmas.

Merry Christmas.

Albert Mohler: The Message and Majesty of Handel’s “Messiah”


Everyone knows about George Frideric Handel, but few remember Charles Jennens, but it was Jennens who wrote and conceived the idea of the “Messiah,” the massive oratorio that is performed thousands of times worldwide at Christmas. Jennens wrote the libretto—the text—of the “Messiah,” tying together the Bible’s central story: God’s salvation of His people through the work of the Messiah.

He used the very words of the Bible for his text. Jennens had a purpose in his project, and that was to remind his audience of the truth and power of the story of salvation. And thus his attention to the birth of Christ. In just 21 days, Handel put the words to majestic music. “For Unto Us a Child is Born.”

That is the prophet’s declaration of God’s great gift to us at Christmas. It is the reason for the unspeakable joy Christians know at Christmas.

Merry Christmas from the Salem Radio family.
