According to Mohler, if someone leaves the ministry, it likely means they never had a calling to it to begin with.
This is more a medieval Catholic viewpoint seeing those in ministry somehow superior to the average Christian.
According to Protestantism, if all work is equally called by God whether it is secular or ecclesiastical and if people change jobs all the time, why can't someone be called into professional ministry for a portion of their lives and then be called elsewhere like any other occupation.
Or if Mohler is pressed further on this issue, will he also say that --- like marriage and church memebership in the eyes of the crowd Mohler often aligns himself with --- once someone has decided on a job, they are stuck with it for life.
