In Jacksonville, Florida, Albert Mohler, president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, asked about 1,300 protesters attending an annual Bible conference if it is a pastor's responsibility to "…save his people from ignorance (about the Bible)."
Mohler said that one of the crucial issues in the church today is that many people just do not know enough to be faithful Christians. Consequently, Mohler said this problem can be traced to "nominalism in terms of [the average Christian's] knowledge."
